Today I will be reviewing one of the products I received in my Reverie Box. Its a new brand called Neev. I checked out their website and they have quite an interesting collection of products at affordable prices.

Also they have aromatherapy roll-on deos and even lip care roll-ons which I found really interesting. Never seen a lip care roll-on anywhere else 😀. Neev products are handmade with quality ingredients using cold press method. They are free from parabens and SLS. Let’s see how the Neev Royal Glow Kesar Badam Night Cream performs.

When I saw the name as Kesar Badam Cream, I was quite excited as I have seen this combination only in beverages 😀 . Neev Royal Glow Kesar Badam Night Cream is pale yellow in color due to the presence of saffron. The color looks very much like those kesar badam drinks that we get and the scent is also similar. I get reminded of kesar badam kulfi icecream whenever I open the jar 😋 . The consistency is very thick, creamy and heavy. You need only a little amount each time else it will make your face greasy.
After applying, you might feel your face looks oily. But since I use as night cream, I don’t mind it. It moisturizes my skin well and makes it baby soft. When I wake up in the morning, I don’t feel the oiliness as all the cream gets absorbed while you are sleeping. I have dry, acne-prone skin. Though it contains various oils, it hasn’t caused any breakouts.
Neev Royal Glow Kesar Badam Night Cream is suitable for dry skin only. Other skin types can skip it. But after regular usage for a month, I haven’t noticed any significant changes apart from moisturization and softness. There is no fairness, firmness, glow or scar removal as claimed. But for the so affordable price, what more can you expect?
Neev Royal Glow Kesar Badam Night Cream is a basic night cream with the goodness of several natural ingredients. It contains minimal chemicals. Only Potassium Sorbate and citric acid are the preservatives. It can be used as an anti-aging cream due to its nourishing properties.
If you have sensitive skin, I would suggest you to do a patch test. Its not just chemical products that can irritate your skin. Generally products with natural ingredients and herbs are more concentrated and some of them can irritate your skin. Whenever I applied this cream after scrubbing my face, I could feel a slight tingling sensation. But apart from that no breakouts 😊.
Does it satisfy all its claims?
No. It just moisturizes and softens skin. Also has anti-aging properties. Apart from that, all other claims are false. Maybe I need to use it for than a month 😕?

It’s budget-friendly and great value for money.

Overall, Neev Royal Glow Kesar Badam Night Cream is a very affordable night cream with an impressive list of ayurvedic ingredients and minimum preservatives. It doesn’t give any remarkable effects as such. If you have good skin with not much issues like acne, scars, dullness, you can use this cream for maintenance and it would do well in keeping your skin moisturized, soft and prevents aging.
