Old VS New: Daytime Facial Oil

ass_out_for_antioxidants
🔶 I loooove facial oils for daytime and nighttime. They just give my skin that extra glow and moisture and are an essential part of my routine. Typically for daytime, I go with a lighter oil that sinks in quickly, wears well under makeup, and will give me a glow throughout the day. THE OLD 🔶Kiehls Daily Reviving Concentrate 🔶 I purchased this oil because it was an alleged dupe for the Vintner’s Daughter Active Botanical Serum (my absolute favorite daytime facial oil but its $200 so I’ll probably never buy it again). I wouldn’t say this was a dupe at all but it is an incredibly lightweight antioxidant rich oil containing ginger root, sunflower oil, and tamanu oil. 🔶 This oil was a little too light for my liking but if you’re oily and want to start using a daytime oil you’ll probably love this. This oil was fine, but it didn’t really blow me away or give me the glow that I like to see with a daytime oil. THE NEW 🔶 Herbivore Orchid Oil 🔶 I purchased this oil after getting through a travel size and loving it. This product contains mineral rich and moisture binding orchid extract, omega fatty acid rich camellia oil, and barrier replenishing squalane. It’s richer than the Kiehls oil and is probably more suitable for normal to dry skin types. 🔶 I love this product. It has an amazing jasmine scent and if they made this into a perfume I would 1000% buy it. This one takes a little longer to sink into the skin but it leaves my skin so glowy and bouncy and soft.

🌱RATING HERBIVORE FACIAL OILS 🌱
Hey everyone, I wanted to do a quick little review on my experience with these three herbivore facial oils! My number one was the HERBIVORE - Lapis Blue Tansy Face Oil For Oily & Acne-Prone Skin . This is the only one of these three I would repurchase, it has a very distinct sweet herbal smell that has grown on me so much to the point were I find it absolutely delightful now. It isn’t for everyone, especially at first but if you like it I promise you will end up loving it. The full size goes for $94 for 50ml but will last you ages since you only need 3-4 drops at a time. The blue tansy oil which gives this facial oil it’s bright blue colour helps reduce redness and clear completions with its anti inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. It also has a sedative effect which can help reduce stress, tension and anxiety. This is my all time favourite facial oil, and is now a total staple in my skincare collection. Next is the HERBIVORE - Phoenix Rosehip Anti-Aging Face Oil for Dry Skin this oil is just a little too expensive for me at $115, anything above $100 is where I draw the line especially when there are so many other more affordable rosehip based oils on the market. This definitely smells floral, rose dominant, with a little soft citrus - it’s very hydrating and soothing. I’m glad I tried it but price is the main reason why I wouldn’t repurchase. And lastly HERBIVORE - Orchid Facial Oil I’m sorry... this is not for me. It may be for some but not me haha. It seriously reminds me of my grandmas bathroom - a constant overwhelming potpourri smell. It’s $84 for a full size and I’d 10/10 recommend spending the extra $10 and snag the lapis oil instead! If you like some not so delicate, feminine florals this might be for you but if you are scent sensitive this could just be a headache. Have you tried these oils? Do you agree, disagree?! Let me know your thoughts ✨💛

A Face Oil Worth the $$
As someone who struggles with oily skin and large pores, I am very choosy when it comes to what oils I put on my face. Luckily HERBIVORE - Orchid Facial Oil passes the test! This is a hydrating but not to heavy face oil that smells amazing, absorbs quickly, and doesn't clog my pores. The highlighted ingredients in this product are orchid extract, camellia oil, jasmine sambac oil, and olive derived squaline, and there are only 7 ingredients in total. Together, these ingredients contain many antioxidants and hydrating and protective ingredients. I use 4 drops of this at night and wake up glowing! This oil is one of my favorite smelling products ever, mostly due to the jasmine sambac oil and jasmine extract. However - I have read mixed things about jasmine extract. Some sources say that this is a great ingredient that has antioxidants and is hydrating, but I have also heard that it can be a skin sensitizer. I personally haven't had any problems, and my skin has never felt irritated or sensitive while using this product, but if you are someone who's skin is more sensitive or easily irritated, make sure to do your own research and, as always, do a patch test. At $64 for 50 mL, this product is definitely a splurge, but since I find it important to put good quality oils on my face as opposed to poorer-quality oils that will clog my pores and break me out, I feel like the price is justified. I have the mini one right now, and I am torn on weather to repurchase or not, because I love this product, but on the other hand there are so many different products to try as well! I have normal/oily skin and love this product, but I think that is because my skin is normally oily when it is dehydrated, so if you really struggle with consistently oily skin, this may be too heavy for you. On the other hand, I think someone with dry, normal, and possible combination skin would love this product. 5 stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This stuff is beyond amazing! The Drunk Elephant B-Hydra hydration serum is the perfect addition to anyones routine, oily or dry. It’s the best serum for hydration, it’s like a drink of water for the skin. This products claims to help with texture and add some hydration, and I believe that it does just that. The texture is like a light weight gel, it’s cooling and absorbs like nothing into the skin. Leaving zero residue. I 100% recommend this to everyone! I swear everyone needs this product in their life 🙃 It’s totally worth the price/time/effort for this amazing product! Perfect for my dry, sensitive skin!

Hydration Shot!!!
Hydration Shot!!!
Hydration is the key for glowing skin so we have to make sure that we are well hydrated in & out. So aside from drinking enough water, give your skin a cool drink too. That's what @drunkelephant B-Hydra™ is made for. This is an intensive serum formulated with pineapple ceramide and pro-vitamin B5 to give the skin the hydration it needs thoughtout the day. This is one of my fave DE product as it gives that hydration shot which my skin needs. I can use it alone but I love making smoothies so I mix it with either #cfirma, #framboos, or #apassioni.

Tatcha The Essence 〰️ This was the first essence I ever tried and oh my did I fall in love. Tatchas resurfacing softener contains 98.7% pure Japanese anti aging superfoods and promises to plump, smooth, resurface, protect against aging and maximize performance of skincare placed on top. Yes please? I ordered this in a kit mid last year and wasn’t sure how I felt about essences. I definitely thought this would be a product I would use but didn’t NEED and the essence has absolutely changed my view. My skin looks plump, hydrated and healthy. I do feel like it helps my other products melt into my skin and I love the idea of helping everything else work a little bit better. This essence is a pretty penny ($95) but the packaging is incredible, the results are amazing and I found it lasted me quite a long time. After toning I place a few drops of the essence into the palms of my hand and pat it into my face and neck upon application I follow with the rest of my routine. Since this essence ran out I have been branching out into a couple of others but this is one I can see myself going back to later on down the road.

I have a very unpopular opinion of this product just a forewarning. DRUNK ELEPHANT - B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum is a very light gel like consistency that provides intense hydration. It can be used alone or mixed in with other moisturizers or serum‘s for an added boost of hydration. The full-size this to me is just not worth the cost because I have found cheaper alternatives that do virtually the same thing at a fraction of the cost. I do love a product like this for my dry skin because it really allows me to get my maximum hydration in but I do not think that this is worth the full $50 price tag. If you really like the gel consistency that this provides Pollis choice makes one that’s very similar to this however I prefer something in a more watery/serum like form and so for me I prefer something like the ordinary hyaluronic acid to just boost anything that I need with that extra hydration.

Drunk elephant 🐘: worth the hype?
Drunk elephant 🐘: worth the hype?
Skin type: combination. Skin concerns: fine lines, wrinkles, dullnes, pores. Drunk elephant 🐘 is a brand that you can see all over the internet, most beauty bloggers have something of this brand and don’t hesitate to take a picture since their packaging is very colorful. But... are these two DE products really worth the hype? DRUNK ELEPHANT - Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil Key ingredients: Virgin Marula oil. Price: $72 for 1 oz. Worth the hype?: No. The first time I saw this bottle (full size), I fell in love with it 😍. The truth is that it took a long time to try this product and when I finally had it in my hands... meh 😑 it's like any other Virgin Marula oil and the truth is that there are thousands on the market at cheaper prices. I'm glad I bought “the littles” pack. DRUNK ELEPHANT - B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum Key ingredients: pro-vitamin B5, pineapple ceramide, sodium hyaluronate. Texture: lightweight serum. Price: $48 for 1.69 oz. Worth the hype?: Yes. I like the versatility of this hydrating serum, it can be used alone or in combination with other products. It’s quickly absorbed leaving the skin hydrated and fresh, a little goes a long way. I combine it with Virgin Marula oil and vitamin C. I think the price is reasonable for the amount of product you receive. What do you think of them? 🔎

Not quite a mini but an absolute favourite, a true holy grail product 💯🤩 . As you guys know, I’ve been experiencing a lot of sensitivity lately and this is the only product that has been able to calm my skin down. It’s both hydrating and so soothing! This is by far the best hydrating serum I have ever tried and will forever be a repurchase. I seriously mean it when I say I can’t live without it! 😍 . drunkelephant is it possible to get a lifetime supply of this baby?! 😝🤣
