What is a Facial Oil?
Our Nourishing Facial Oils contain powerful, pure nutrients that are formulated to replace cream moisturizers. They lock in moisture for dry sensitive skin and balance acneic or oily skin. They contain only active ingredients including an abundance of vitamins, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids which your skin needs to regenerate, repair, protect and perfect itself.
When is the best time to apply my Nourishing Facial Oil?
You can use your Nourishing Facial Oil morning and evening, however, I encourage you to do what best suits your skin, as everyone's preference is different.
Can I wear the Nourishing Facial Oil under my makeup?
Absolutely! Apply no more than 3 drops and wait about 3-5 minutes to let soak in before applying makeup. If you still notice your skin is slick after 3-5 it means you have used too much.
I have dry skin but I also get breakouts, which products do you recommend? I recommend using our Daily Cleansing Oil to first get your skin balanced again. The organic lemongrass essential oil, castor, and grapeseed oils will dissolve the impure oils and bacteria that lead to breakouts and help to limit oil secretions, so your skin won't overproduce oils. Castor oil also helps the skin retain moisture along with super moisturising organic jojoba, sunflower, apricot kernel, and vitamin E oils. Next use your Cleansing Grains to gently buff away flakey dry skin that can potentially lead to clogged pores. The organic Calendula and Aloe Vera powders will help to soothe irritated skin and rehydrate. Finally I recommend you using the Nourishing Facial Oil for Combination to Oily skin. The oils in this Nourishing Facial oil are better suited for acneic skin. You will be getting all of the potent nutrients and antioxidants needed to repair, hydrate, and protect your skin while keeping it easy for acneic skin to absorb. All of these products are available in our Ultimate Beauty Bundle.
I’ve never used cleansing oils or facial oils before, will they cause me to break out?
This is a very common question. Our products are sensitive skin, oily, and acneic skin friendly. Oil products contain essential fatty acids (something your body can’t produce on it’s own) which your skin needs to stay hydrated and retain elasticity. The oils we have chosen to be in our products are chosen for very specific reasons. We base our oil products on the concept of fighting fire with fire. For example our Daily Cleansing Oil is based on basic scientific facts that water and oil don’t mix, only oil dissolves oil. If the oil in your pores are not in balance, or you are stripping your skin of it’s natural oils by over-cleansing, your skin will start over producing oils leading to clogged pores and breakouts. When balance is restored you will notice healthier, clearer skin. Our Daily Cleansing Oil gently dissolves impure oils in the pores and replaces them with fresh nourishing oils with antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, oil balancing, and ultra-nourishing properties. The oils in this cleanser will balance both oily/acneic skin and dry/sensitive skin. Our Nourishing Facial Oil for Combo/Oily skin types are formulated with thinner oils high in linoleic acid which is easier for younger, oily, acneic, and combination skin types to absorb. Our Nourishing Facial Oil for dry/dehydrated skin will bring hydration, and encourage cell regeneration in dry to very dry skin.
How long until I start seeing a difference in my skin?
Don't fall into the trap of trying something new and only giving it 1 day before making any decisions. It takes minimum 2 weeks for your skin to adjust to something new, so give it a little time and you will see your skin transform!
Are your products safe for pregnant and breastfeeding women?
Yes! All of our products are chemical free and do not contain any herbs or essential oils that are not safe for pregnant or breastfeeding women.
Do you test on animals?
No way! Only on willing humans ;)
