Face Oil: Renew and Replenish
33.00

Benefits: A synergistic blend of 14 active pure plant ingredients, this face oil is deeply nourishing and replenishing, especially beneficial for restoring moisture to dry, mature and normal skin. It is high in natural vitamins including A & E, essential fatty acids, and antioxidants that work to prevent premature ageing, soften the skin and fine lines, promote cellular regeneration and support collagen and elastin production. It encourages a healthy radiant complexion.

Directions: Apply 4 - 6 drops to fingertips and massage onto clean dry skin, including your face and neck. Use every morning and night.

If you wish to combine products (for extremely dry skin), would recommend you use a 100% natural face serum first and use the face oil over it to lock in moisture. Otherwise, it will usually be nourishing enough on its own. Sunscreen and make-up easily glide over - simply give the face oil a few minutes to sink in.

If you wish to combine products, would recommend you use a 100% natural face serum first and use the face oil over it to lock in moisture. However the product will most likely be more affective on its own as sometimes combining products can irritate the skin. Face oils are very nourishing on their own.

Sunscreen and make-up easily glide over it - simply give the face oil a few minutes to sink in.

The Benefits of each Ingredient

Note that ACO indicates an Australian Certified Organic ingredient, and organic ingredients are used wherever possible. Each ingredient is chosen for a specific purpose and blended to a proportion that will be both beneficial and deeply nourishing for the skin as the oils blended together create a synergistic effect. The essential oils used are at very safe and therapeutic doses, so as not to cause any irritation and prevent sensitisation that can occur in some other products on the market. Provided you are not allergic to any of the ingredients, you can expect these products to be safe and highly beneficial. (If you do have an allergy to a specific ingredient listed, please contact me to have a bespoke face oil created for you instead - I'm happy to provide this service for Brisbane based women and men).
