How does it smell? Kind of a dark, citrusy scent

How does it feel? Like a thick, silky oil. Quite easy to blend and leaves a great glow very quickly.

Cost? £30 for 25ml/ Can’t find the price in dollars, please feel free to comment if you know

How long did I test for? 3 months on and off

What I liked? This has definitely got to be one of my favourite oils. It has this ability to emphasis the natural colouring of your skin, which leaves you with an undeniable glow. I always think it best to use this on no make-up days so my skin can soak up every bit of the oil that it might need. I also really like that it works well with other products i.e. I sometimes mix my tan luxe in or even some Yu-Be to mitigate the oiliness on days when I’m feeling particular lazy and don’t want to spend ages working an oil in. It also contains, linoleic acid in it (a component of rosehip oil), or vitamin F, although it doesn’t fit the standard definition of a vitamin. It is probably better classed as a fat – it is essential (because the body doesn’t produce it naturally). In skincare, it is useful for anti-inflammation, moisturizing (which makes loads of sense, seen as this is advertised as a moisturizing oil) and the healing of the skin. If you’d like a more in-depth superstar ingredient post on this just comment below!

What I disliked? Nothing. I love it!

Would I buy again? Yes, I also don’t think £30 is excessive for an oil so it is worth it!

Where can you purchase? DrJackson.co.uk / Feelunique.com
