Never did I think that using a facial oil on my oily skin would be beneficial. My skin has been suffering this winter becoming so dehydrated, yet still oily in other areas, a rubbish combination when it comes to applying makeup on top. With my complexion looking dull and some scaring still showing I was on the hunt for anything that would help. The Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil was a trusty twitter recommendation which I am so glad that I added into my routine.
Why are facial oils good for oily skin?
Before purchasing this I decided to do a little research of my own around facial oils in general. I don't have sensitive skin but still stay clear of mineral oil as it can clog the pores and cause further problems, however I've realised that plant based oils are a completely different playing field. Plant based oils are natural and can actually help regulate oil production within the skin as the properties are so similar.
How I use this within my current routine
This is the third step within my routine after I cleanse and tone. I use this in the evening although you can use it both morning and night, I apply 2 drops into the palm of my hands than I press the oil into my face rather than rub, mainly concentrating on my cheeks as this is where I have the most scaring. I find that this sinks into my skin quickly without leaving any uncomfortable greasy residue behind (one thing I dreaded that I thought an oil would do).
The differences in my skin
I've been using this for three weeks now and I'm already noticing that the scaring I had from blemishes are fading, and any blemishes I've had in that time have healed and cleared much quicker than usual. Even after day three I noticed that my skin was incredibly soft and smooth, the texture of my skin has changed completely becoming so much more plump and hydrated. I haven't noticed that my skin has been more oily or less oily really, but from using this my skin has become hydrated and my makeup is lasting longer and looking nicer throughout the day.
Overall I am so impressed and happy that I have this lovely product within my routine. It is nice to use something so natural that really makes a difference.
