I have very weird skin. My skin is dry but oily on the T Zone. I have a lot of trouble trying to get one skin care product that would actually work on my skin type. Since I have started working out, my skin seems to be getting drier, surprisingly and also started breaking out. Yep, Dry skin breakouts!! I totally gave up on my skin and my skin literally died. Then Iraya sent me this little pot of magic and my skin revived again. Read on to know what exactly happened when I used the Iraya Saffron Elixir.

The Iraya Saffron Elixir comes in a little frosted glass pot with a silver screw on lid. The pot looks super elegant and I love the way the packaging complements the color of the product inside. The pot is pretty heavy and might shatter if dropped. I tried travelling with this and though it was safe and sound, it caused me a lot of anxiety in terms of breakage. So unless you have a heart of stone, don’t take the chance :-P

Some of you might not like the tub type packaging since you have to dip your fingers in and mix in all sorts of germs, I don’t really mind it that much and I’ve gotten over my issues with tubs since that seems to be all anything comes in these days.

Texture and Appearance

The Iraya Saffron Elixir is a Water based Gel that gets easily absorbed into the skin just with a few strokes. The Elixir has a few strands of saffron running through it and the color of the Gel is Saffron as well. The Saffron Elixir smells super natural and does not seem to contain artificial scents as far as I can tell.


I use the Saffron Elixir after washing my face before bed time, massage it in for a few seconds, leave it on, let it dry and go to bed. The next morning, my skin feels refreshed and alive. There is a very subtle glow to my skin now and my skin started feeling so much better in about a month of regular usage.

The Saffron Elixir is a gel formula of the age old miracle oil Kumkumadi and works just as well as the oil does. Though since my since is dry, the gel kinda doesn’t moisturize enough for my skin. It is perfect for normal to oily skinned people though and oily skinned people would definitely love it!!

I have been religiously using this for almost a month, month and a half now and I love the way my skin feels so healthy and nourished. I will definitely repurchase but maybe the oil this time since my skin is very dry. On second thoughts, this doesn’t feel bad on my skin either!!
