This product retails for $9, which will give you 1fl oz./30ml bottle of product. That works out to 0.30 cents per ml of oil. Take a look at the products currently on the market, and you will quickly think of this as a hidden gem.
This face oil is designed to be used at night and contains Vitamin E, Retinol, Coconut, Apricot, Sesame, and Grapeseed oils. All designed to protect the skin while encouraging cellular turnover. I would not call this a ‘light’ oil. It is quite heavy and somewhat sticky upon application. However, that sensation goes away reasonably quickly. The oil has no real smell but, it will give a shiny appearance to the skin.
While using this oil, you will want to:
- Wear sunscreen daily
- Keep the oil in a cool dark place ( to protect the efficacy of the Retinol)
- Avoid the eye area
- Be careful to rub it in before touching anything to avoid transfer
I could only use this product twice a week. The Coconut oil would make me break out if I used it more often. I would recommend it if you need a deeper level of protection for the skin at a really great price.
