I could not be without a facial oi in my skincare routine and regularly use an oil in place of a cream moisturiser. My skin loves them!
I have been using this Odylique Superfruit Concentrate Serum – £33* (I would call this an oil not a serum) as part of my evening skincare routine for a few weeks. I wasn’t sure how I felt about this at first. It wasn’t a case of ‘love at first use‘.
It is quite a thick oil and has a distinct smell: a cross between chocolate orange and nuts perhaps?! I’m not a big fan of the packaging. In fact, the applicator has slipped out of my hand and smashed (I am still using it with half a pipette).
Having said that, I have grown to love it and feel like I’m giving my skin a ‘hug before bed‘.
The luxurious 100% organic oil ticks all the boxes for my mature skin. It includes cell-regenerating and UV-damage protecting sea buckthorn oil, protecting and repairing pomegranate oil, smoothing and cell-renewing rosehip oil along with hydrating and vitamin-replenishing avocado oil.
I think this is definitely one for those with a drier skin and is not something I would choose to use as part of my morning skincare. I prefer to use a fast absorbing, lighter oil under makeup (the Ere Perez Australian Blue Cyprus Face Nectar is great for this).
If your skin is suffering with the winter weather, this may be one for you to try.
