Face Oils! The Skin Care gods gift to us mere mortals who will age, the current love of my skin care life. Obsessed.
Face oils have been a big addition to the skin care world over the past few years and I am surely glad of adding them into my daily routine. I was originally a little scared of facial oils because my skin is on the oily side and had tried some other oils in the past that didn’t really do anything for my skin. I was convinced to give the Josie Maran Argan Oil a go by a good friend who is also totally obsessed with oils and I have never looked back.
The Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil is my current go to oil in my routine. It is a organic, cold pressed Argan oil from morocco. Josie Maran is also a great brand to by from because the products are clearly labeled with what is in them as well as where the ingredients are sourced and what else has been used to create the products. The Argan Oil is a rich oil with a medium thickness that applies evenly and smoothly to the skin. Argan oil is designed to add moisture to the skin and therefore even out texture issues on the surface. I have tried other Argan oils before and so far this is my favourite.I have noticed that my skin looks much healthier with a glow and a lot more bounce in the skin. I also feel like my foundation is applying better to my skin as many of the textural areas of my skin are now gone.
The other oil I have been loving at the moment is the Dr Dennis Gross Triple C Peptide Firming Oil. Firstly I wanted to mention that this product has fragrant plant oils in it, namely Lavender oil, which is an irritant, so if that is something you react to I would give this a miss but if you are fine with fragrance it is a beautiful product. The oil is a combination of three different forms of Vitamin C which is going to even out the skin tone, help remove dark spots and sun damage and brighten the complexion as a whole which is something I need. It also has Peptides to help renew the skin cells at the surface and make sure the skin is receiving the ingredients properly. There is also a combination of Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid and Salicylic Acid which will provide a light exfoliation and calm down any break outs.
I am currently using the Josie Maran as my everyday oil but will soon be going back to the Dr Dennis Gross as my skin is in need to brightening and clearing some pesky dark spots.
