It might seem counterintuitive, but massaging oil onto your face a couple of times a day is great for your skin. Applied over serum, facial oil helps to restore natural lubrication to the skin, making it appear healthy, plumped and glowing.
Odacite Serums, which contain no water or silicones, are actually closer to a facial oil than a serum. Don’t let this put you off – they work brilliantly and offer a lot of choice, depending on what your skin needs. As my skin’s needs seem to change daily, I keep four Odacite oils on hand.
Camelina – Chamomile for sensitive skin – this blend soothes and pampers stressed or irritated skin. I use it when my skin is extra dry or chapped. I often suffer from extremely dry eyelids, and use this oil neat with great results.
Green Tea – Lemongrass for radiance boost – I use this blend when my skin needs a bit of perking up. I find myself reaching for it on days when I’ve not had enough sleep the night before and my tiredness is showing.
Wild Carrot for vital glow – gives skin that holiday look, like I’ve spent time reading a good book in the sun. Just a couple of drops and my skin looks rested, refreshed, and glowing.
Blueberry-Jasmine – for cell energy – for when I need serious help with skin fatigue. Blueberry oil is a powerful antioxidant which can help repair skin and promote healthy sell turnover.
There are eighteen oils in the Odacite range, so there should be something for all skin types or concerns – and they are all made from cold-pressed oils, plant extracts, and essential oils with no artificial ingredients or preservatives.
Effectiveness: 4 – with daily use, these oils improved my skin.
User Experience: 4 – these are easy to apply, but can smell a bit odd – mainly because most cold-pressed oils smell a bit, well, odd.
Comfort: 5 – I feel a positive difference within seconds of using these facial oils.
Repurchase: Yes. I have.
