Hello, hello – welcome to / welcome back to A Brash Attitude!
If you follow me on InstaGram, you will remember that I was on the 2021 Cert Clean “Clean Beauty Awards” judging panel for a second year in a row, and my category was facial oils. I was sent a box of facial oils to test out and rate as a part of the jury. I wanted to show you two of the facial oils that I still use on a regular basis – the Greenvines Know More Resilience Facial Oil and the AYSWE Hydrate and Glow Facial Oil with Squalane. I’ve been using them both since the beginning of May. [info in italics taken from their respective websites]
Let’s take a look at the Greenvines Know More Resilience Facial Oil:
Formulated with a skin-mimicking, light-weight oil complex, and featuring the award-winning Marine Bamboo that leave the skin feeling contoured with an iridescent glow, not weary and dull. Know more deep nourishment and no more inefficient absorption.
And now the AYSWE Hydrate and Glow Facial Oil with Squalane (certified safer skincare by CertClean):
A lightweight oil formulated with organic babassu oil, argan oil, sugarcane-derived Squalane and other nourishing ingredients like vitamin E, black tea to soften and deeply moisturize skin. It also works to even out dull skin and keep skin elastic. This natural oil packs your skin with antioxidants and fatty acids without leaving a greasy feeling, making it suitable for all skin types, even oily and combination skin. Hydrate & Glow oil seamlessly absorbs into skin and is perfect for day or night time application.
Both of these facial oils contain squalane, which is probably why my skin loves them so much. Both are lightweight, non-greasy, quick to absorb and give my skin a healthy glow. Love them!
Both brands claim to be vegan and cruelty free. Where they differ is in pricepoint – the Greenvines sells for $76 USD, and AYSWE sells for $42 USD – both are sold in 30ml / 1oz glass bottles.
Do you like squalane based facial oils?
Thanks for reading
Disclosure: In case you missed it at the beginning, I received these facial oils as a part of my judging panel duties, and am under no obligation to review. My opinion is always my own.
