When it comes to beauty products I will try anything I can get my hands on at least once. I have oily/combination, acne prone skin and at the start, the idea of putting facial oil on my skin was daunting. I was reluctant because I thought applying topical facial oil to my oily skin would cause breakouts, little did I know that you can fight oil with oil. It tricks the skin into stopping the overproduction of its own oils. If anything it will help balance out your skin’s natural sebum production and heal acne scars. I went ahead and took the plunge and I love the results that I got using the award winning Sanctuary Spa Therapist’s Secret Facial Oil.
The Look – Is a beautifully packaged, elegant and modern design. It comes in a glass bottle with an easy to use dropper applicator. This luxurious product is very practical as you can control how much oil to dispense at once.
The Scent – Is a gentle botanical smell which is very natural and soothing.
The Oil – Absorbs quickly on the skin and contains a brilliant mix of sunflower, jojoba, wheatgerm and rosehip seed oils which helps to replenish, rejuvenate and hydrated the skin.
The Results – I apply a few drops to my fingertips and rub my fingers together to warm up the product then I pat the oil all over my face and neck and massage gently avoiding the eye area. I also love adding a few drops to my moisturiser at night, I feel like it works to hydrate and soften my skin while I sleep. I wake up to an amazing glow and a plumper more radiant looking skin.
The Price – Retailing at $29.95 AUD you can purchase your bottle online, this is a great investment as it will last you a long time.
