This is a very nourishing oil. I have a dry (to very dry) skin type and this suits me down to the ground. When I first started using it, I didn’t expect much as I had a pretty good skin care routine anyway and thought there wasn’t much room for improvement. But, to my surprise around 4 weeks into using this, people around me started asking me what I was doing differently as my skin looked very rested, nourished and glowing. If you have a bad skin care routine the results will be noticeable quicker.
I’ve always admired black seed as a product in skin care but hesitate to use it because of the pungent scent, however it has been reasonably toned down in this elixir. The use of rosehip in the blend and lemon grass, even make this concoction pleasant and uplifting to me.
I’ve used this under makeup to support a dewy look but my favourite application is using it as an overnight treatment for my skin just before retiring to bed. I find the scent quite relaxing and look forward to using it in my nightly bedtime skincare ritual.
p.s. I am such a sucker for packaging and am totally in love with the fact that due to the graded colour fade on the bottle you can see the 24k flakes sitting pretty in the base. It’s a good reminder to shake the bottle well before use!
