|Jurlique Skin Balancing Face Oil|
A quick-absorbing, lightweight hydrating treatment that helps to balance all skin types, leaving skin feeling smooth, silky, and luminous. It deeply moisturizes, helps to improve skin’s suppleness and elasticity, and addresses signs of uneven texture.
It is formulated for all skin types, without Parabens, Sulfates, Phthalates and is 99 percent natural and free from silicones, PEGs, colorants, and preservatives.
Color: Light yellow
Scent: The oil is aromatic. It has a floral, perfume smell. Strong initially, but later mellows down and is pleasant.
Application: I take a few drops on my palms and apply it all over the face and neck, by slightly massaging it in with finger tips. It is advisable to pat the oil in by pressing gently on the face, but I find a little massage therapeutic. I use it on alternate nights and avoid using it during the day time.
Feel and effect on skin: The oil sinks in pretty quickly. It does not disappears completely like lighter oils, but does not sits on top either. The key is to use only a few drops (3-4) Any excess oil will just stay on the skin, looking greasy without getting absorbed. The oil is part of my night time skincare routine. The skin feels moisturized and super soft the next day. Also, consistent use has improved the texture of my skin. It is even, without any dry patches. The skin looks plump, healthy and nourished.
Packaging: It comes in an amber colored glass bottle with a dropper. The tip of the dropper controls the amount of oil dispensed. The amber color or cobalt blue color bottles are generally used to store aromatic oil blends because they help to keep out deteriorating sunlight and protect the aromatic and therapeutic properties of oils.
Verdict: This is a rich, aromatic oil. The blend has Rose Hip seed oil, Evening Primrose Oil, Macadamia Seed Oil along with Shea Butter and Jojoba Oil. This is such a classic blend for dry skin as well as mature skin. I have seen considerable difference with my skin texture. No dry patches and no clogged pores or dull skin. This would not be my first choice of oil if I had oilier skin. Also, I find that if I use it liberally, it gives me those white bumps. The key is moderation. The oil is prefect for skin that is very dry, dehydrated and under nourished. Consistent use results in soft, smooth and supple skin.
