Living Nature Radiance Night Oil



This little gem is complexion perfection in a bottle.

Now I wouldn't usually say that about Face Oils but I decided to try this during a chapped skin phase and it recovered it victoriously. If you don't like facial oils, you're not really alone. There's an army of combination skin ladies like us who would love the feeling of plush skin after a generous application of facial oils but none of that actually translates as well on our skin as it sounds. Come morning, there isn't a Gigi Hadid glow in action but a rather unglamorous cluster of breakout that one takes days to recover from. No thanks. 

Hence I've stuck to light weight creams and gel based serums for years and to be honest, it's worked pretty well. Throw in a twice yearly purchase of Weleda Skin Food and I'm sorted for my dry skin needs. 

The change of weather recently which has shifted to gusty Antarctic winds from your usual British winter (thanks GB!) has however demanded I whip out some intensive formulas. Living Nature's Radiance Night Oil's star ingredient seems to be rose oil, alongside a fleet of other skin quenchers like rosehip oil, carrot oil, calendula, jojoba oil, frankinsence oil, Vitamin E and more. Not only does it add a tint of warmth to the skin, it adds a beautiful spa-like glow whilst smelling divine.

Easily absorbed into the skin, it still leaves an obvious trace of glow-from-within which I quite like. Making foundation slide on like a dream, it also ensures it adds a boost of shine that peeks through makeup. I've been gymming with a little makeup on recently (I know, kill me!) and I believe the combination of make-up, sweat and dehydration has confused my skin lately. Result - dry patches around the eyes and mouth that just won't budge.

Living Nature's Radiance Night Oil is literally the only skincare item from my existing stash that quenched the extreme dehydration and kept skin looking moisturised for hours. You only need a drop or two at a time hence the dearly priced bottle at £48 turns out to be good value for money. It's one of those core products that you need to have in your skincare kit during the year in case your regular hydrators aren't cutting it for you. Did you also know you can mix it with your regular serums, moisturisers, face masks and foundations to help them in the radiance department? Multi-tasking at it's best.
