I love having nice soft skin and one of the products I like for my body is oil. I use a body oil moisturiser every time I get out of the shower and I also add baby oil to my baths too to really lock in the moisture. I had been putting regular body oil on my face but thought that there must be an actual dedicated oil just for the face that might be better and do a bit better of a job. Maybe its the long cold winter that we've had but I've noticed that my skin was looking decidedly dull and not very bright or pretty and I wanted to give it back a bit of sparkle and a nice fresh look so that is why I wanted some proper facial oil. I've been reading really good things about facial oils in the fashion magazines and so thought this would be a great way of achieving a nice looking face.
Well, after a search around Boots I found this wonderful facial oil from Organics. There were quite a few facial oils to choose from but I was not about to pay upwards of £20 just for a little bottle. This 25ml bottle was much better priced at £9.99 and in fact at the moment it's on offer for £4.99 so if you are on the look out for one I definitely recommend buying now.
This facial oil is 100% organic and on the box it says, "This aromatic oil melts into lacklustre skin to lock in moisture for 8 hours while softening, conditioning and helping to restore its natural glow."
The oil comes in a little bottle and has a little pipette applicator at the top which I love. It firstly means that I get no mess or leakage from this bottle as I can get with regular bottles on body oil.
Secondly I find the pipette applicator a really easy way of applying the oil to my face. You just basically squeeze the top of the applicator to suck the oil up into the little tube and then you can either squeeze drops directly onto your face or you can squeeze them onto your fingertips. I prefer to squeeze them out onto my fingertips as then I can make sure I put the oil in all the places on my face that I need it. You don't need too many drops of oil, I would say about 6 works for me and this is enough to smooth the oil all over my face. I then use a further 2 or 3 to cover my necks, gently massaging it all in with my fingertips until its has all smoothed in. You would think that applying an oil to your face makes it really greasy but I have to say this is completely untrue. The oil soaks in very quickly, its not instantaneous as it does need a few minutes but after that you get no oily residue on your face at all.
The oil is the colour of cooking oil basically but thank goodness it does not smell like that. It contains nourishing rosehip so it actually smells really wonderful and has a lovely rose smell to it. According to the box, "Rosehip is nature's nourishing gem. The seeds are a rich source of essential Omega oils, which help to improve suppleness and keep all skin types beautifully soft and healthy looking."
The first morning after I used this oil my skin felt Amazing with a capital A! It was so soft and just felt amazing. I have continued to use it since then, pretty much everyday like it recommends on the box and all throughout the winter my face has been lovely and soft and smooth. I also have noticed that my cheeks are quite rosy and have quite a glow to them so I really like what this oil is doing to my skin deep down as well. I am definitely converted, I will continue to use this face oil for a very long time as it works perfectly for me.
