As promised… my initial review of this face oil I bought in NYC! I’ve been using it for a full week every AM & so far, I love it!
I know a lot of people are skeptical about oils in their skincare routines, especially if they have acne-prone or oily skin. BUT, truth is, they’re probably the ones who’d benefit most from high-quality oils because oil fights oil! Instead of using foamy/soapy cleansers & acne treatments that dry out skin & force it to produce MORE oil, increasing the risk for clogged pores & overproduction of sebum, we all need to be adding more oils to our lives (& skin!); when we provide skin with the nourishment & moisture it needs (& lacks, especially in the winter time), it BALANCES oil production, prevents moisture loss/dehydration & lowers the risk of pores becoming clogged with acne-causing bacteria & oil!
Now… back to this oil! It’s made with organic noni, rosehip, pomegranate & sea buckthorn, so it’s full of skin healing & anti-aging antioxidants, pH balancing ingredients & fatty acids that also fight inflammation. Overtime, the use of these vitamin C & E rich oils can also reduce sun spots, scarring, signs of aging, improve skin tone/texture & boost collagen.
I love how well it absorbs into the skin & the fact that it doesn’t leave an oily film so you can apply makeup over it in the AM without it looking greasy or streaky! It gives me an instant glow & makes my skin feel soft, fresh & moisturized! I’m excited to continue using it & will update you guys in a month!
BONUS: It also has the Clean Sephora label!
PRO TIP: Whenever you use face oils, make sure to warm them up for a few seconds in your palms. This helps activate their benefits & enhances absorption by your skin because the oil is at room temperature!
