Oils

I had few amazing pure face oils the other day and absolutely I LOVE them! They are not luxury products and NOT expensive at all! I chose Black Cumin Oil, Rosehip Oil & Grape Seed Oil.

I tried them all with different routines, I mixed them into my night serums and applied with other moisturisers which I got great results.

Grape Seed Oil

Grape Seed Oil. First I was a little worried because I have very oily skin. Actually grape seed oil works best with the oily skin! That’s amazing. Using grape seed oil for oily skin is very beneficial due to it being high in linoleic acid. This acid has been tested to reduced clogged pores which ultimately can help reduce your natural oil content. Being able to balance out your oil content will allow for a smooth, even skin. I usually massage it straight onto my skin with a clean face and hands. I only need two or three drops of the oil to be rubbed onto my face. 

Gently dab one or two drops of grape seed oil on or around any dark under eye circles. Due to the oil being able to tighten and firm the skin it will freshen and lighten the under eyes. That worked amazing for me! Because of my job’s requirements I have to use computer all day, which causes shiny oily skin with tired eyes. In the morning I apply it into my daily moisturiser a few drops of the grape seed oil to it and apply like normal. This helped my skin to retain the moisture for longer and contribute to balancing oil levels all day!  The other plus is it is very cheap! You can shop this pure Grape Seed Oil from Notino.co.uk.

Black Cumin Seed Oil

Black seed oil is extracted from the seeds of Nigella sativa, a plant native to southwest Asia (commonly called black cumin).

Black cumin seed oil is a legendary secret of the goddesses like Cleopatra and Nefertiti, who used it as part of their daily beauty regimen. It is also known that the pharaoh Tutankhamun was found buried alongside black cumin seed oil almost 3300 years ago! So after reading that interesting information I was really keen to try this oil! 

I have oily skin but this oil is for every skin type. I use it every night after my night serum. I have clogged pores around my nose area. But after 1 week of use I realised that pores got cleared out and shrunk. 

Also around my mouth I have laugh lines which always I wasn't happy with. I pad  the black cumin seed oil especially around these ares to moisture.  It has vitamins A, B, and C, which help the skin retain moisture, maintain elasticity and fight the damaging free radicals that age you faster. So absolutely loving this oil and it is very cheap!! you can easily purchase from Notino.co.uk.

Rosehip

Rosehip oil  is harvested from the seeds of rose bushes, and is full of vitamins, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids that supposedly do wonderful things for your face.

It is high in vitamin A & C. So for that reason I use it with Clinique Vitamin C booster. I apply Clinique Vitamin C first and after 10 minutes I use Rosehip Oil to boost extra vitamin C for a perfect skin! 

Next morning I wake up to a bright amazing skin! Once time I had very bad cold normally your face looks very tired but I added Rosehip oil to my regime few days ago and everyone’s comment was, “oh but you don’t look ill, Your face looks amazing! “ So it could be because adding  Rosehip Oil to my nightly routine. The other benefit is  an independent clinical studies show that Organic Rosehip Oil can improve the appearance of a scars by a whopping 41%.
