Review: Bath & Body Essentials Orange Serum

Hello everyone! Let me share with you another product review from one of my favorite brands, Bath & Body Essentials. If you have missed reading about their Rose Body scrub and Rose Lip scrub, read those as well 🙂
This time I got a chance to try the serum brewed by the girls! Let me give you a heads up, you won’t be disappointed.
Product Description by the brand:
Orange essential oil is an anti septic and an anti-inflammatory which makes it an ideal ingredient in your skin routine. This oil isn’t just for acne prone skin though:  it is shown to increase the ability to absorb vitamin C, collagen production and blood flow, all of which are essential for anti-ageing

My experience:
This was the first of fruit serums I tried and I was pretty much curious to see how a particular goodness enriched serum (orange oil) worked.
Firstly, let us understand what is a serum?
A serum is a liquid-based concentrate of active skin care ingredients used as an alternative or in addition to creams, which help rejuvenate skin. Its functions change based on the ingredients and its benefits.
How is it more effective than creams and lotions?
Being easily absorbent when compared to lotions and creams, it delivers the active ingredients faster, deeper and without any loss. It ensures better results in skincare.
How did I use this orange serum? (Tried on dry, sensitive skin**)
I have dry and sensitive skin. I aimed at using it as moisturizer for my facial skin since it rejuvenates dull skin. Since this is summer time, I use it for my hands and neck too, mixed with moisturizer to heal the skin from the harshness of sun
Orange oil is known for its miraculous benefits on skin, specially on signs of aging since the anti oxidants present in it ensures healthier skin.
How to apply on face – Make sure to do a patch test before use. I did the same. I started using it on my face since it did not show any reaction 🙂 Before going to bed, take 2 drops (3 for longer face), dot it all over your cleansed face and massage well in circular motions until the serum gets absorbed and your dry skin starts feeling hydrated.
For acne prone skin, be gentle and dab it mildly all over the face.

Being a multipurpose serum, how else can it be used?
One of the advantages is its versatility. Like I mentioned before, if you are worried about sun damage or generally, the overall health of skin, mix the serum with moisturizer, cream or 100x washed ghee and apply every night before bed. Your skin would love you back.
How efficient was Bath & Body Essentials Orange serum?
I liked how it gave a healthy glow and rejuvenated skin with regular use. I would recommend to use it during night time.
To summarize, I would say one must definitely prolong the use of serum to see the results and the goodness it does to our skin. A good buy, orange serum would prove to be!
Pros:
Multipurpose serum (body & face)
Natural
Free from chemicals
Easily absorbing
Good results with prolonged use
Cons:
None
Desi Réflexions statement: For the the economic range I would suggest B & B. Thumbs up for the orange serum! 🙂
