I love facial oils. Part of the reason my skin cleared up so well was because I did research into facial oils and used them to improve my skin. Ever since, I’ve been applying them to gradually fade my scars and keep my skin balanced and healthy. I was lucky enough to be sent the Moroccan Rose Superfood Facial Oil* by Dr Botanicals to review and test and I couldn’t be more excited to let you know that I love it.
Dr Botanicals is a vegan certified skincare brand using all natural ingredients. It’s also good to know they don’t test on animals. The Dr Botanicals website describes the product as an ‘infused Facial oil… packed full of minerals and vitamins, all working together to rejuvenate, renew and protect skin.’ I agree that my skin has reaped the benefits of this product. The product is further described as ‘rich in antioxidants and moisturising properties to keep your skin protected and hydrated when it needs it most.’ And what stupidly excites me is that the product is pink!
It is hydrating, it does make my skin feel fresh and it is moisturising – all without feeling rich. With most oils I’ve tried, the consistency is very wet and thick and the skin absorbs the oil slowly so I rarely use them before makeup. I usually apply a facial oil before bed to allow the skin to soak in all the goodness – however this facial oil is more versatile. The consistency is thinner and feels finer, meaning it sinks in more quickly and can be used morning and night because it doesn’t sit on top of the skin for long. It feels light but blends in beautifully, especially alongside the vitamin E serum that I use. Some facial oils break me out so I have to be careful – this one does not.
The combination of it’s ingredients together just really works. Vitamin C makes the skin look younger by stimulating the production of collagen. Vitamin A is a rejuvenating antioxidant which evens the skin tone and protects the skin. Almond oil moisturises and cares for the skin, bringing to it brightness and clarity. When I apply the oil before bed, I wake up with rejuvenated and bright skin that feels smooth and above all else clear. My acne scars have benefitted from the use of this product over the past week and a half, the inflammation and pigmentation is less obvious and I am so happy to be including this in my daily routine. I cannot sing its praises enough.
