Face oils provide much needed nutrition for the skin. They aren’t just for dry or dehydrated skin, if you have acne prone skin you can also benefit from using an oil, proving it’s the correct one. Jurlique recently sent me their selection of face oils and it seems they have something for everyone. The scent varies throughout the three due the varying blends of oils and none are too potent or overwhelming. The price point of £34.20/€38.00 is reasonable considering you get 50ml of product. I recommend using the right one for your skin type in combination with an acid exfoliator and serum as part of your evening skin care routine. More information on the three different varieties is listed below.
BEST FOR OILY OR COMBINATION SKIN SKIN BALANCING FACE OIL. As the name suggests this oil will re balance the skin using a blend of Safflower Oil (which protects the skin against moisture loss), Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride (replenishes the skin with natural fatty acid’s), Avocado Oil, Macadamia Seed Oil and Shea butter which all nourish, moisturise, soften and plump the skin. Evening Primrose Oil, Chamomile and Daisy flower extract will sooth and calm any irritation brought upon by hormones, changes in weather or stress. Tocopherol (Vitamin E) and Echinacea will heal and repair any damage to the skin. This is a lightweight oil that absorbs easily without any residue on the surface of the skin. A good choice for oily skin providing you use just 2-3 drops.
BEST FOR DULL SKIN ANTIOXIDANT FACE OIL. A blend of antioxidants and plant extracts combat free radicals/environmental damage that causes skin to become dull. Avocado Oil (nurtures and protects the skin from moisture loss) Grape Seed Oil (softens the appearance of fine lines) and Squalane (boosts the skin’s regenerative abilities). It’s a good idea to spend a minute massaging the oil into your skin. This will boost circulation and detoxify your skin leaving it looking brighter and more radiant.
BEST FOR SKIN WITH VISIBLE SIGNS OF AGEING. FIRMING FACE OIL. As we get older our skin’s ability to regenerate and produce collagen decreases. Safflower oil, Sunflower Seed Oil, Macadamia Seed Oil , Rosa Canina Oil, Avocado Oil, Black Currant Seed Oil ,Cacao Seed Butter and Licorice root extract work in harmony to hydrate and plump up the skin. This also contains Vitamin A which gives this product it’s anti-ageing credentials. Products containing Vitamin A are best used at night as daylight will weaken this vitamin reducing it’s ability to rejuvenate the skin.
