The Dish with DDR: Oil for Your Face?!

The Dish with DDR: Oil for Your Face?!

To use or not use, that is the question. 

I received a sample recently of Palmers Face Oil and I was a bit wary about putting oil on my face because I have very sensitive skin and usually opt for oil-free products.  However, I was intrigued.  So, after showering and cleansing my face I used about a nickel size amount of the non-greasy, nutrient dense oil and massaged into my skin. As per the directions, I left the oil on over night while I slept.  I definitely felt an immediate softness and suppleness to my skin (predictable) but when I woke and washed my face in the morning, it felt even more plump and refreshed. That combination of Cocoa-butter, Retinol and Vitamin-C does an epidermis layer good! 

I never broke out (which I was afraid would happen) or had red blotchy-ness (which usually happens to my skin with oily products).  So, I used what was left of the sample size product for the next few nights and just LOVED how my skin felt.  It also doesn’t hurt that the oil is hypoallergenic, paraben-free and phthalate-free. 

Unfortunately, I only had a few days supply so I don’t know what the long-term effects would be, but I will def be buying this to use on a regular basis and would highly recommend giving it a shot if you want to reverse the signs of aging and get back that youthful glow! 

Another face oil that I’ve tried is Eclos Daily Facial Cleansing Oil from Ulta.  This oil is a little different from the Palmer’s because you use to cleanse your face to remove dirt and makeup. 

It says to use twice a day to get the best results.  Personally, I need a product that I put on once a day and can leave on- easy..breezy.  But I was attracted to the Eclos brand because their products are produced (exclusively) with apple stem Cell Technology and also free of parabens, sulfates, petroleum and fragrances amongst other things. 

This oil is clinically proven to reduce wrinkles and improve your skin’s texture within two weeks.  We shall see!      

You can purchase these brands in your local pharmacy, Ulta, or online.
