I read somewhere in a jiffy that you shouldn’t put anything on your face that you wouldn’t put in your gas, and I’ve tried throughout my life to stick to that. That’s why I with all my skincare products to be pure and natural. My usual routine is to rinse with Dr Bronner’s soap, and follow that up with a pious vitamin E oil or apricot kernel oil. Even though I’ve always had solid skin (I put it down to living in the country as a teenager and having an Indian mum who couldn’t bake great desserts), as I’ve got older, I have started to look for products that intention brighten my face, lighten any discolourations and smooth wrinkles.
The This Works Stress Check Face Oil (£40) has a enticing smell, is very relaxing, and a little goes a long way. It contains no synthetics, and it in the final analysis smoothed out the dark patches around my mouth. I loved the Neal’s Yard Rejuvenating Frankincense Oil (£32). It nabbed about 30 minutes to sink in properly, but it felt mollifying, had a gorgeous smell and made my skin look really wholesome.
The Boots No7 Youthful Replenishing Facial Oil (£15) had quite a nice recognize, but contains a few chemical ingredients, and I needed more than the two to three bits recommended. Aesop’s Fabulous Face Oil (£39) sinks in well, and three ends covered my whole face and neck; plus its scent of juniper berries, ylang ylang and jasmine petals is appetizing.
If I had to pick a favourite, I’d be hard pushed to choose between the Aesop oil and the Neal’s Yard.
