Well hello and welcome back!
Today I have another review, this time I want to talk to you about a skin care product I have been using for the past month – The Dr. Botanicals Moroccan Superfood Facial Oil.
I was lucky enough to get my hands on the Limited Edition Mothers Day Birchbox and this product was part of that box. Since I had never really used a facial oil I was very keen to give this a whirl and immediately put it into my routine.
The product retails at £39 for a full size 30ml bottle, the one I received is 15ml and with every day use I have used probably 3/4 of the bottle in just over a month. So judging by that you probably get around a 2 – 3 months supply in a full size bottle.
The product claims to be “packed with vitamins (Vitamin C to stimulate collagen production and Vitamin A for even skin tone and reduced signs of ageing) and minerals working to repair and protect skin. It is a non greasy, lightweight formula that melts into the skin” but how true is that?
Well to be honest, very true. This is a super light weight oil. I apply 1 drop to my forehead and 1 – 2 drops to each cheek and gently distribute to the rest of my face. I do this after cleansing and toning, and then I go in with my moisturiser.
In the past month I have noticed a huge difference in the texture of my skin, and the lack of need for exfoliation (Don’t worry I do still exfoliate but my skin is hugely improved). My skin feels softer and smoother with little to no dry patches. I think its super easy to use, and makes a huge difference to the skin.
I don’t find this product to be overly oily, I think the claim of “light weight, non greasy” is actually pretty spot on. It is instantly absorbed as soon as you start to rub it in and its not sticky in the least.
I adore this product and am so glad I got to try it because I’m not sure if this is something I would have purchased on a whim, you know? That being said, now that I have tried it I’m not 100% sure I would repurchase this exact one, but let me tell you why.
On the market currently there are a bunch of facial oils at a range of prices – from £5 to £105 (I’m guessing) and there is so much choice that now I know I like to use a facial oil, I want to experience a few others before committing to a favourite and there are a couple I am interested in trying, however, that’s not to say that this won’t be the one I come back to because its a lovely product and I am very impressed by it!
So that’s it guys, let me know in the comments what facial oils you have tried, I love hearing from you guys.
Talk to you soon!
