If you’ve seen my Youtube video about facial oils, you know I love to use these silky, potent elixirs on my skin to keep it moist, supple, and wrinkle free (yes, I’ve been worried about wrinkles ever since I was about 12 years old!). Oils and serums aren’t packed with all the fillers that traditional moisturizers contain…you’re only getting the good stuff here! Even if you have oily skin, a facial oil will keep your skin balanced, moisturized, healthy, and more youthful.
I recently discovered a new one that I just HAD to tell you about. It’s by a lovely company called Acure Organics, and they’re committed to offering skin and hair care products that are free of nasty parabens, animal testing, gluten, silicone, synthetic fragrances, artificial colors, and phthalates. I purchased this product at my go-to online store for all things natural and organic, Vitacost.com. At around $20, I thought it was a very reasonable price for a USDA Organic product.
I’ve been using this product for several months, and I find it to be outstanding. It has a nice, fresh (somewhat herbal) smell, it absorbs quickly, it leaves my skin feeling uber-smooth, and it’s so pure and natural…which makes me feel great about using it. I love the glass pump bottle because it dispenses the right amount of product and keeps things sanitary, plus I can recycle it or refill it when the bottle is empty. I use it mostly at night when my skin is resting and repairing itself, but I’ve been known to use a few drops in the morning as well. I just give it a few minutes to absorb before putting on my makeup. I put a few drops in the palm of my hand, rub my hands together, and then pat it on my face (while inhaling the relaxing scent). I love it! This is a definite repurchase for me.
