About 6 months ago I received a beauty box through the post from My Little box I believe, within the box was a 10ml bottle of Jurlique Skin Balancing Face oil. A product which I found myself using most evenings. About a month ago I used up my very last drop of my sample oil & didn’t buy a back up which I regretted. After about a 2 weeks of not using the oil I started to notice in the mornings when I woke up my skin lacked something. I can’t really put my finger on what it is but when I use this oil my skin looks and feels more awake.
The Jurlique Skin Balancing Facial oil (£38) is a non greasy lightweight oil that my skin just absorbed in minutes. It is a treatment oil therefore the instructions tell you to use 2-3 drops for face & neck however i have a big face so i like to use a lot more, usually applying around 7-8 drops per night. With it being a treatment oil I have used it underneath a light moisturiser when my skin has felt a little dehydrated or I have had a bad night sleep. I have been using this 50ml bottle every evening & occasionally in the morning too and it has hardly made a dint in the quantity.
The facial oil contains Safflower oil which is extracted from seeds and comes under the vegetable oil category, It protects skin from loss of moisture without clogging pores due to the high percentage of linoleic acid (An essential fatty acid found in the safflower oil) – little bit of chemistry for you there! Also in the ingredients list are things such as Rose Hip Oil, Avocado Oil, Macadamia Seed Oil and Shea Butter which all help with retaining moisture, helping uneven skin texture, While also protecting against environmental irritants.
I have combination skin and it works really well for me so don’t be afraid to give facial oils a go just make sure you choose one that is right one for you skin type. The Jurlique oil does contain shea butter which is usually a no no when choosing my skincare products but personally I have found this to be the perfect blend for my skin. If you can it might be best to get a sample to try first.
Do you use facial oils? If so which do you use?
