In the past couple of posts, I’ve mentioned my use of facial oils in the evening, and to be honest, using them is one of my favourite parts of my skincare regime. If you’ve got skin which errs on the dry side, they’re a must-have! I have a bit of a wardrobe of them, so depending on how my skin feels, I can choose one which best suits my needs.
My newest acquisition is Temple Spa’s It’s All Good Facial Oil. A bottle chock-full of great-for-skin ingredients including Watermelon Seed Oil, Sunflower Oil and Peach Kernal Oil. The result is a product which works well on all skin types, and is especially great for dry and sensitive skin. I am absolutely obsessed with the fragrance; it’s light, fresh, and not-quite floral, and if Temple Spa made it into a perfume, I’d wear it forever.
Depending on the time of day, I use the oil in two ways. In the morning, I use a drop of oil in heavier foundation formulas to sheer them out a little. The result is a base which smooths on beautiful, glides over skin, and leaves skin looking healthy and hydrated all day long. In the evenings, after cleansing a pat a few drops of the oil into dry skin, adding a drop or two extra wherever skin feels dry. The result is skin which feels soft and nourished rather than overwhelmed. The oil itself is surprisingly lightweight, and sinks easily into skin without leaving it feeling greasy. The mornings after using the oil, my skin looks and feels nourished and hydrated – meaning I get to wear less makeup as a result!
