Packaging: It comes in a clear glass bottle with silver dropper cap. You can see the quantity of the oil. The color of the oil is very pale yellow which you can see through. The packaging is simple and efficient and of good quality. It is sturdy but does have some weight on it so I'm not sure I am gonna travel with it.
Formula: Its a pale yellow color which is transparent on the skin. The consistency is somewhere in between thin and thick. It does get absorbed into the skin after few mins and gives a shine. Its not sticky even though it has some really heavy blend of oils.
My Experience: I have used this for 3 months now. I am still confused over it. I don't hate the oil but I don't love it either. I take two drops of it on my fingers, warm it then apply it on my skin, that way it absorbs faster. I do have dry skin but I have noticed if I use even a drop more it stays on my skin making it look greasy. I do prefer this oil at night time over daytime.
The best way I have learned to use it is directly at dry patches or as a massage oil and wash off in an hour or so. I don't think this oil gives a glow it looks shiny on my skin. Infact the first few times when I used this oil everybody complimented how glowly my skin looked but I felt it was on the shiny side. Its best on no makeup days as the foundation slips and slides if applied on top.
I mix 2 to 3 drops of this oil with my body lotion when I feel my skin is dry or flaky, but it does take time to absorb and it transfers till it doesn't fully get absorbed in the skin. I have even used a drop of it to rub around my eyes before bed and my under eye do look extra nourished in the morning (though doesn't help with brightening).
I would recommend this oil for dry and patchy skin but don't expect a miracle. I would definitely not recommend this to oily and acne prone skin as it does clog up your pores.
I usually avoid my nose area if I use this oil at night as my nose area is oily and thus causes it to breakout.
My Rating: 👍👍👍
(The ratings on Nykaa is 4.6/5)
** A lot of people I know have really liked this oil and plum does some really good products but I am not sure of this oil. I am obviously gonna use this bottle as its dry weather currently but I don't think I am gonna repurchase it.

I'm not prone to acne but I do get them and sometimes heat boils due to weather change which do leave marks sometimes. I have few blemishes too on my face. I have dark circles under my eyes.
