How does it smell? Very distinct aniseed smell.

How does it feel? It’s a balm so it has a very soothing waxy texture which is quite enjoyable but also takes great effort to work in.

Cost? £18.80

How long did I test for? 6 weeks

What I liked? I love the fact that it contains a  great natural oil in the form of  Olus oil. It’s a natural decongestant and uses 100% natural oils – YAY! I also love it because it contains Linalool, an oil that has been proven to boost Vitamin C production which protects the skin from aging. The other great thing about Vitamin C is that is a POTENT antioxidant – which means it can neutralize free radicals in the skin.

What I disliked? The texture is kind of a love hate thing for me because I’m torn between desiring a clean feel all the time and the smooth effect it give me the morning after I’ve used it. In all fairness, this is easily fixed with careful cleansing + application. I like to use glycolic acid right before I use it to make sure my skin is completely clear.

Would I buy again? Yeah, I saw an improvement in my skin every time I used it. I tend to put it on at night after a deep cleanse – it takes so much to work it in that I like to make sure there’s no other entities that could be accidently worked in at the same time. Be aware to use sparingly because you will look super oily. ALL. NIGHT. LONG. Saying that I’d like to stress I don’t think it is a necessary part of your kit but more so a little something extra for days when you need more, unless you have major dehydrated skin.

Where can you purchase? Liberty, Net – a – Porter
