Facial oils are an absolute must-have in my beauty regime. I feel they really have upped my skincare routine, fortifying and calming my skin, as well as simply feeling super luxurious and pampering, and I love making new facial oil discoveries; the latest of which is from Oilixia Skincare.
Oilixia Brilliance Facial Oil (30ml, RRP £37)* is a silky, readily absorbed oil made with a blend of 18 naturally sourced oils and 3 patented actives, which promises to reveal more radiant, visibly smoother and firmer feeling skin. The first of these actives is IBR-TCLC; an extract derived from the tomato fruit and which is clinically proven to help brighten and even out the complexion, leaving a fresh-faced glow. We then have Kahai Oil, pressed from the nuts of the Amazonian Cacay tree, to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, improve skin hydration and suppleness, and finally Gatuline In-Tense, an active sourced from the bud of the South African Paracress plant, which in clinical trials was shown to help skin feel firmer and visibly smooth away fine lines.
The Brilliance Facial Oil is very rich in vitamins A, C and E, and provides powerful antioxidant protection from environmental damage. Add to the mix Omega 3, 6 and 9 which helps the skin retain its moisture levels, keeping the skin soft and supple, and Retinol, a classic anti-ageing ingredient, and you have the perfect nourishment for dull, tired complexions. The finishing touch to this sublime oil is the delicate scent of neroli, lavender, bergamot and patchouli which uplifts the senses. This really feels like a decadent treat for all skin-types.
If you feel you are no longer reaping the rewards from your existing skincare routine I’d definitely recommend introducing a facial oil. Just a few drops gently pressed into your skin prior to applying your moisturiser will really help boost hydration, suppleness and radiance, supercharging your skincare regime. Oilixia Brilliance Facial Oil is the perfect candidate, so do visit the website to discover more!
