Botanicals Nourish Facial Oil with Organic Rose & Camellia

Have you ever tried a facial oil? I have always been a bit wary of them, as I used to have greasy skin. I didn’t think that would be a good combination! However as I have aged, my skin has started to dry out, to become combination.

Now that the occasional spots are fighting for space with the wrinkles, I thought it was time to try a new approach. My weapon of choice is Botanicals Nourish Facial Oil,* which is 100% natural and 99% organic.

Botanicals Nourish Facial Oil with organic Rose and CamelliaThis rich, organic oil contains a blend of oils known to nourish facial skin. Ingredients include rose, jojoba, sunflower, camellia, and lavender. You can imagine how delightful it smells!

It comes in a dark brown bottle so that it keeps fresh, without any nasty preservatives. The dropper means you don’t contaminate it by putting your fingers into the bottle. Botanicals Nourish Facial Oil with organic Rose and Camellia

I only use it at night as it does make skin shiny, not ideal as a make-up base! I find it is rich enough to use by itself, along with my eye cream. If you have dry skin you may like to add a layer of your normal night cream over the top. Just massage it it, it couldn’t be easier.

ALL ABOUT BOTANICALS

Botanicals is one of the first brands to have their whole range certified by the Soil Association. This is what they say about themselves:

“Quintessentially English, Botanicals Organic Skincare contains the best quality, sustainable, certified organic and natural ingredients to promote both personal and environmental health and wellbeing.  All products are made fresh in small batches to preserve their active botanical properties, and processing methods ensure that the active nutrient (vital life force) of the plant isn’t destroyed by heat or over-processing.”

Their products are vegan, not tested on animals, and made in England.

MY VERDICT ON  BOTANICALS NOURISH FACIAL OIL

I have been using the Botanicals Nourish Facial Oil for about two weeks now . The first week, I got spots on my chin, but this is pretty standard when I try a new cream. Now, my skin is looking brighter and the spots are going, as my skin adjusts. It’s too soon to see if it has any effect on my lines, but overall the texture and feel of my skin is certainly improved. It smells gorgeous, and it looks lovely on my bedside table! It costs £22.50 for 30ml, which I think would last a long time, as you only need a few drops per application. Botanicals Nourish Facial Oil
