As you can see, the ingredients highlighted by Sunday Riley match the one’s they make their anti-oxidant claims around. Which is SO good to see! You’re not being ripped off when it come’s to the potency of the ingredients.
How does it smell? It’s not fragranced, so you really get the natural hit of all those oils coming together. I’ve always liked things that smell nice but no fragrance doesn’t bother me at all and is better for your skin. Especially if you have sensitive skin.
How does it feel? It’s quite heavy and takes a second to work in but in doing so your skin looks really dewy and glowy all the way until the morning!
Cost? £54/$72.00 for 35 mL.
How long did I test for? A year on and off.
What I liked? Generally, I think this is a very good oil because of the high concentration of active, potent ingredients. The main constiuent is Blackberry Seed Oil, which works well as an antioxidant, it’s a berry so something reliable. And that theme is carried on through at least four more ingredients. So, if you need something that works as a strong antioxidant, then this is the guy for you. Also, £54/$72.00 is a lot of money, you might wanna consider buying the smaller version to take it for a test drive. It will last you a good, long while.
What I disliked? The price. Much like Drunk Elephant, Sunday Riley is in the ‘is it even worth it’ braket of skincare for me and many of you! And while I apperciate all the factors that go into creating and selling a product I can’t help but think, could I not just buy Blackberry Oil for a fiver from somewhere myself?
Would I buy again? Maybe. There’s just too many other oils that I want to try before I would even consider it. And really all I’m looking for is the best deal, amazing results +reasonable price.
