So how did it measure up?

This is the first time that I’ve ever tried a plum oil.

I really like the Plum Beauty Oil, it is light and sinks into the skin quickly. I’ve been adding a few drops into my moisturizer in the mornings for an added hydration boost. Very calming on the skin, and not at all greasy.

Poetic Blend The Timeless Oil Review

Hello, hello!

Today I’m sharing my review of The Timeless Oil from the Poetic Blend giveaway that I recently won. I’ve already reviewed The Hero Oil [info in italics taken from the Poetic Blend website]

Poetic Blend The Timeless Oil

Defying age and time, The Timeless oil is blended with precious plant-based oils that deliver optimal hydration and essential fatty acids which help the skin retain moisture and increase skin cell growth.

Poetic Blend The Timeless Oil

Formulated especially for dry to mature skin types. A unique blend of Rosehip, Argan and Sea buckthorn oil combine to fight free radical damage, plump dehydration lines, soften the appearance of wrinkles, and brighten dark spots. Our fast absorbing formula melts into the skin to deliver essential omega fatty acids and antioxidants.

Poetic Blend The Timeless Oil

This facial oil is AMAZING. It is super hydrating and has loads of awesome properties (plumping, softening, brightening). I know that I’ll be getting a lot of use from this one now that the weather is getting colder. My skin tends to need a lot more moisture during the winter months. It plays nicely with my moisturizer and foundation – which is always a great thing!

Disclosure: I won this in a giveaway, and because I love skincare, you know that I’m going to share my experience!

Poetic Blend The Hero Oil Review

Poetic Blend The Hero Oil

Hello, hello!

Today I’m sharing my review of The Hero Oil from Poetic Blend that I won in their recent InstaGram giveaway that I showed here on Monday. [info in italics taken from the Poetic Blend website]

Poetic Blend The Hero Oil

This heroic elixir uses a natural blend of precious botanical oils that helps to rescue skin in need of relief from inflammation and other sensitivities. Supremely lightweight and contains soothing and calming properties, it also promotes healing and reparation. The Hero oil is always up for a fight.

Poetic Blend The Hero Oil

The Hero dry oil balances and tones normal/oily to blemish prone skin types with a potent blend of Jojoba, Grape Seed, Evening Primrose, and Black Currant seed oils. With a structure most similar to the skin’s natural sebum, Jojoba regulates the production of facial oils. Black Currant, Evening Primrose, and Grape seed oils deliver a potent dose of antioxidants that  fight free radical damage, brighten the complexion, and soothe irritation.

Poetic Blend The Hero Oil

The Hero Oil is lightweight, and absorbs into the skin quickly. It works so well for my sensitive skin as it really does help keep things calm and irritation free. It plays nicely with serums, moisturizers and with my foundation. Because it is a dry oil, it doesn’t leave a greasy feeling on the skin.

Disclosure: I won this in a giveaway, but because I love skincare so much, I had to share my experience!

Osea Essential Hydrating Oil Review

Hello, hello!

Today I have a reveiw of the Essential Hydrating Oil from Osea that came in my July Petit Vour box. [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

Osea Essential Hydrating Oil

This ultra-hydrating botanical oil restores a healthy luster to the skin. Naturally rich Jojoba and Sesame seed oils deliver advanced hydration, visibly reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. A precious blend of pure Lavender, Rosewood and Geranium essential oils provide a dewy, illuminated complexion and create a gorgeous aromatic allure. The perfect instant surge of hydration for a beautiful, radiant glow. Skin Type: All Skin Types / Age Defying 

I love facial oils, and have been incorporating them more and more into my skincare routine. I’ve been using this one daily since it arrived even though we are in the midst of another heat wave – because although my skin isn’t as dry as it is in the winter, all the heat and sun does dry out my skin. This oil is light and hydrating, and absorbs fairly quickly into my skin. It plays nicely with my Juice Beauty CC Cream SPF30, and with my usual sunscreens  from LASPA SPF30 and Mychelle Dermaceuticals SPF28 and 30.

Osea Essential Hydrating Oil

Ingredients 100% Cruelty-Free and Vegan | *Macadamia Ternifolia (Macadamia) Seed Oil, *Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Oil, *Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil, Thuja Occidentalis (Cedar Leaf) Oil, *Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Pelargonium Graveolens (Geranium) Flower Oil, *Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Peel Oil, Salvia Sclarea (Clary) Oil, *Anthemis Nobilis (Chamomile) Flower, Aniba Rosaeodora (Rosewood) Wood Oil, Tocopherol (Vitamin E) |*Certified Organic Ingredient

osea3.jpg

As you can see from the ingredient list, it is a blend of macadamia / sesame / jojoba seed oils and several essential oils. Scentwise, my nose picks up on the cedar and rosewood more than the other oils. It kind of reminds me of the Sensitive Elixir from Saje Naturals.

I really like this facial oil, I’m super happy that the sample size is quite good (0.34 oz / 10 ml) so I’ll be able to get several weeks of use from it!

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day!

Aromatherapy Associates Hydrating Revitalising Face Oil Review

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing the Hydrating Revitalising Face Oil from Aromatherapy Associates that came in my January Petit Vour box. [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

Petit Vour January 2018

This facial oil nourishes and revitalizes the skin like a rich cream, yet absorbs instantly like a serum. This blend of luxurious essential oils and natural plant extracts restores vitality to dull skin. Frankincense essential oil helps to rejuvenate whilst Rose oil smooths and firms. Skin is left appearing radiant and glowing. Suitable for all skin types, perfect for dry or mature skin that needs a boost of vitality.

This facial oil is beautiful – super hydrating. And it really absorbs into the skin quickly without feeling heavy or greasy. I’ve been using it in the mornings after cleansing, before applying moisturizer. I haven’t experienced any problems in using this with my makeup.

Aromatherapy Associates Hydrating Revitalising Face Oil

100% Cruelty-Free and Vegan | Prunus Persica (Peach) Kernel Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Borago Officinalis (Borage) Seed Oil, Pelargonium Graveolens (Geranium) Flower Oil, Rosa Damascena (Rose) Flower Oil, Fusanus Spicatus (Australian Sandalwood) Oil, Pogostemon Cablin (Patchouli) Oil, Parfum**, Boswellia Carterii (Frankincense) Oil, Tocopherol. | *Certified Organic / Natural Essential Oils.

It does however contain perfume in its ingredients – but it has not triggered any skin reactions, thankfully.

The full size sells for $64 USD for 15ml (0.5 fl oz) so it is a little on the pricy side. The sample value is listed as $15.20 USD for 3ml (0.1 fl oz). I have several facial oils in my stash, hopefully I’ll be able to use them all up before any of them go off!

Poetic Blend The Ghost Oil Review

hello, hello!

Today I have a review of The Ghost Oil from Poetic Blend that came in my October box from Petit Vour [info in italics from the Petit Vour website]

Poetic Blend The Ghost Oil

As the quintessential daily moisturizer made with a beautifying blend of incredibly fast absorbing and highly nutritive oils, this uniquely formulated creation is supremely lightweight, ultra nourishing and vanishes deep within – leaving behind nothing but silky smooth and hydrated skin. The Ghost oil vanishes deep within the skin without leaving a trace.

Poetic Blend The Ghost Oil

The Ghost Oil is super lightweight and really does absorb quickly into the skin. And as an added bonus, it has no real scent. I’ve been adding a few drops into my moisturizer to give my skin an extra hydration boost in the mornings and on its own (after various serums) at night. I really like this facial oil!

It is a multi use oil:  used on its own or added to moisturizer, used as a makeup remover and facial cleansing oil, used as a nail and cuticle oil, used for dry patches, used as a hair oil, used as a shaving oil, and as a massage oil! I love multi-purpose products.

Poetic Blend The Ghost Oil

The Ghost Oil contains just five ingredients:

100% Cruelty-Free and Vegan | Squalane oil, Coconut fractionated oil, Camellia flower oil, Safflower oil and Apricot Kernel seed oil. *Certified Organic

The full size bottle (30ml) costs $50 USD on the Petit Vour website.

The Ordinary 100% Plant Derived Squalane Review

Hello, hello!

Today I am reviewing the final product from my recent haul from The Ordinary – the 100% Plant Derived Squalane. Info in italics is taken from their website:

Squalane is a saturated and stable hydrocarbon that is found naturally in the skin. It has very high emollience, is an exceptional hydrator and can prevent ongoing loss of hydration that impairs dermal suppleness. Squalane is non-comedogenic and is suitable for use on all skin types. It can also be applied to hair to increase heat protection, add shine and reduce breakage potential.

The Ordinary 100% Plant-Derived Squalane

In all honesty, this is the one product that I’ve used on my face the least. Not because I don’t like it, but my skin hasn’t been having issues with dryness since the weather has gotten warmer.

I have been using it on my hair though, since it has been feeling a little dry these days and it has been helping to hydrate my hair. I love multi-use products – I’ll probably use this one more in the colder months. But it is good to have on hand in case of sudden dryness.

This one costs $7.90 CAD.

Have you tried this multi-use oil? What is your fave facial  / skin / hair oil?

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day! ❤
