Are Face Oils Worth It? 🌿💦

I received the DRUNK ELEPHANT - Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil
as a sample with my DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial Mask
a while back. I have been using it after Babyfacial as a way to help calm my skin after the chemical exfoliant have bulldozed through. Personally I didn’t actually find this oil super soothing after using Babyfacial. The texture of the oil felt great on my skin, but I didn’t see it reduce redness even after it being on for a few minutes. When it comes to the ingredient list there are some great ingredients in here for sure when it comes to hydrating and soothing the skin, but there are also a few that contribute to fungal acne (an issue I struggle with) and are comedogenic. They say there is no fragrance in this product, but I’m not a huge fan of the smell as I find it quite strong. Will I be repurchasing - Probably not. I love luxury skincare but I’ve never really found that face oils do it for me.. I rather do a mask or have a long bath instead of using an oil to feel pampered. *Disclaimer - I do not support Drunk Elephant in the ways they treat not only their staff, but also their customers.*

Product Mentioned
Facial in a Bottle
Not everyone has the time, money or ability to get a professional facial, but that doesn’t mean our skin has to suffer. For less than the cost of most facial services, you can purchase Drunk Elephant’s TLC Sukari Babyfacial for $80 (or test it out with the Midi size for just $28). And in just a mere 20 minutes, you’ll have skin that looks more radiant, smoother & even tone, and feels soft like a baby’s bottom! 👶🏻 This professional grade AHA/BHA formula is made up of powerhouse ingredients such as 25% AHA blend of glycolic acids, tartaric acids, citric acids & lactic acids. 2% salicylic acid. Chick pea flour. A blend of extracts such as pumpkin ferment, pomegranate, & cactus. Passion fruit seed oil & Virgin Marula oil. Niacinamide. Sodium hyaluronate cross polymer. 💕 I use this facial once a week as a deep exfoliant - to not only remove dead skin cells, but to promote surface turnover, to have a clearer, smoother & more radiant looking skin. I leave this on for 20 minutes and remove using a reusable wash cloth, & pat my skin dry. To prevent any loss of hydration, I follow up immediately with 3 pumps of Drunk Elephant’s F-Balm, 2 drops of Virgin Marula Oil & Shaba for my eye area. 💕 . . * Product has been kindly gifted, but also repurchased by myself 💖 DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial Mask

Facial oils - my experience
Even though I have combination skin, I try to incorporate facial oils in my routine. I feel like they are the bodyguard for our skin, they seal all the products underneath. I have tried two oils till now and here is what I thought: Initially when I used the Biossance oil I thought it worked great, but my skin started breaking out very badly after3-4days and I stopped using the oil all together. I was very scared to use facial oil after my bad experience with this. BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil Then I came across Drunk elephant and with all those glimmering reviews I decided to give Marula oil a try and I never regretted it. My skin didn’t break out at all. And the oil also gets absorbed by my skin quickly and doesn't leave an oily icky residue. I especially love using this at night, when I have more time to massage my face. It minimizes the tugging from facial tools or friction from your fingers. Not everyone likes or needs oils on their face; but if you do, then don’t think twice before buying this! :)DRUNK ELEPHANT - Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil

Here’s an outtake for you of some of my favorite Herbivore botanicals products!! If you follow me you already know I’m obsessed with the Lapis Oil. I mix three drops with Emerald Oil in the AM, and with Phoenix Oil in the PM. It helps soothe redness and always helps clear up any breakouts when I have them. When my skin is really acting up, I mask with their Blue Tansy mask and follow up with Lapis Oil and they’re a dream team! Prism Potion is one of the gentlest exfoliating serums I use. I love it during the daytime added to my oil mix when I need a little extra light exfoliation. Just make sure to always follow up with SPF (you should be everyday anyway)!!

SUNDAY RILEY - U.F.O. Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil I kept hearing about this product and tried using it on my face 💁🏼‍♀️ It is a face oil that contains Salicylic Acid to help exfoliate the skin. I didn’t love how it felt on my face so I tried it on my chest, shoulders, and arms because my skin there is also sometimes bumpy and breaking out. I really like how it feels on my upper body skin! It makes my skin feel super smooth and soft. Also helps with the bumps and breakouts on my upper body skin 💃🏽 But it’s pretty expensive to be using on my body and there are better options for body skin issues! So I won’t be repurchasing 👽

Ominous title but that’s just how I’m feeling... lol. I just received the much raved about DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serumand quite frankly... I’m shocked how tiny it is given it was $90.00! I don’t know what o was expecting but my goodness this better resurface my skin so well that it’s as smooth as a baby’s bottom! No but seriously, I have pretty bad #maskne given I’m a registered nurse and have raging hormones (and crippling anxiety). So I’m hoping this makes my skincare dreams come true. Side note: now that I’m starting a gycolic facial serum and still am using my salicylic acid pads, I figured I’d reintroduce and resurrect one of my most trusty and hydrating companions: L'OCCITANE - Immortelle Divine Youth Oil This oil is my absolute favorite oil and has made my skin looking supple, hydrated, and calm just with occasional use. Because this too is expensive, I use it very sparingly! A little goes a long way! Amazing for dry and acne prone skin due to it being noncomedogenic and very lightly fragranced. Love L’Occitane products (I totally used to work for them!) Have any of you had amazing success with the glycolic serum from Drunk Elephant? Any major pros or cons? Share your insights!

My holy grail facial oil! The Drunk Elephant Marula Oil. This facial oil is perfect for those with acne prone skin and any skin type really. It’s cold pressed and there are no added ingredients. I love that it hydrates as well as helps keep acne at bay. It’s a pretty thick oil, but it sinks into the skin beautifully. I’d highly recommend this pro it to everyone and anyone. Although the price tag is high, I do think the quality of the product is worth it. This procuct gets ☆☆☆☆ out of 5 stars. I knocked off a star because of the high price tag.
