I have to state upfront that I am a lover of facial oils- living on the Highveld, with its dry winters and intense heat in summer, I can really attest to having dry and dehydrated skin, which if not pampered, can be very ageing – and let’s face it, we want to be able to look and feel our best at all times- why not?
So, if you’re into oils, then read on! I have tried and tested several, and honourable mentions have to go to the Clarins Blue Orchid Face Treatment Oil, which is great for dehydrated skin, as well as Skin Creamery’s Jojoba, Melon-seed and Baobab Facial Hydrating Oil- which truly is a favourite.
But onto the elegant Oil-Absolute from Filorga- this is like the gold standard, the mother of all face oils! It’s an oil serum with more than 50 anti-ageing ingredients, helping to restore radiance and boost a tired, dull complexion. It’s a 6- in-one product which addresses nutrition, wrinkles, firmness, evenness, radiance and texture. The ingredients are top-notch and include Buruti oil, camellia oil, Jojoba and apricot oils, in addition to Amber Extract and a cocktail of peptides to stimulate the regeneration of cells.
It’s very luxurious and has the texture of an oil but the power of a serum. It’s suitable for all skin types, but particularly for exhausted looking skin- kind of ‘end-of year skin’!
A little goes a long way- a few drops applied in the morning, (it has a glass dropper) followed by your favourite moisturizer, gives you a beautiful glow; in the evening, give yourself a face and neck massage with it- you’ll reactivate your skin and boost firmness, brightness and radiance.
A quick note- for very dry skins, a drop mixed in your foundation gives you a gorgeous dewy look- but only a drop!
