A new facial oil that I’m totally in love with – and it’s vegan and cruelty-free!
As someone who suffers from skin that sits on the drier side of life, I love a good facial oil. The latest in my arsenal has been the Advanced Anti-Oxidant Superfood Facial Oil from Dr. Botanicals. This facial oil is the greenest product offered by the brand and won silver at the Free From Beauty Awards in 2016. It contains 15 ingredients and no parabens or preservatives whatsoever!
Firstly, I’m a big fan of the packaging of Dr. Botanicals products. Just like their products are simple when it comes to ingredients, they are simple when it comes to packaging. A sturdy brown bottle houses the clear facial oil with a simple label and a rubber capped pipette. I bloody love a good pipette – it makes products like this so much easier to dispense!
The Advanced Anti-Oxidant Superfood Facial Oil claims to protect, nourish, heal and regenerate your skin and helps it to stay looking fresh all day long. It contains blackcurrant seed oil, which acts as an anti-oxidant to protect your skin from damage, and cherry kernel oil is supposed to be great at absorbing UV rays so they don’t damage your skin. Along with sea minerals which help to relieve acne, it’s a great blend of ingredients for a nourishing skin treat.
It isn’t heavy or greasy, and so to combat my skin woes, I’ve been using this oil day and night. It’s perfectly light enough to use under makeup which is exactly what I like in a facial oil. My skin is definitely looking a lot better after a few weeks of use. It’s plumper, clearer and has a much healthier glow about it than before. I’m super happy about this because as the weather gets warmer, I don’t want to wear as much makeup!
A couple of drops is all you need so it looks as though this facial oil will last me a good few months, making the £67.50 price tag much better bang for your buck. I will say, however, if I continue to see such improvement in my skin and complexion I would happily pay that price tag!
