According to Allure magazine’s Beauty Reporter, “dermatologists tell us that face oils (plant-based, not mineral) offer intense hydration; makeup artists rave about how they leave skin fresh and glow-y but not greasy”.
Still need a reason to try one? Check out our take on Allure’s top five renegade uses for face oil, featuring none other than SIRCUIT®’s very own Lavish™ l multi-use therapeutic dry oil, below:
1. Even if it’s not labeled ‘cleansing oil,’ any face oil will gently remove waterproof mascara, long-wearing eye shadow, and lipstick with just a few swipes. And it won’t strip the skin.
2. Rich fatty-acid oils (Lavish™ contains a whopping 9) that are easily absorbed by skin are also easily absorbed by hair. Hairstylist Guido suggests smoothing a drop over parched ends or unruly bangs to tame frizz and flyaways.
3.Adding oil to any cream or liquid foundation will make it more hydrating and more sheer, so you can get away with the shade you wore all summer even if it starts to look a little dark.
4. Many of these skin treatments contain jasmine, sandalwood, and lavender essential oils-scents you’d find in many fragrances. Dab one on your wrists like perfume.
5. For a natural-looking highlighter, tap a bit of oil onto cheekbones, the bridge of the nose, and the shoulders after you finish your makeup, says makeup artist Quinn Murphy.
With 9 precious botanical oils (Grape Seed Oil, Kukui Nut Oil, Organic Borage Oil, Arctic Cranberry Oil, Cloudberry Oil, Bitter Almond Oil, Macadamia Nut Oil, Calophyllum Inophyllum Oil, Neem Oil) and a sweet almond scent that is to die for, Lavish™ l multi-use therapeutic dry oil fits the bill on all points. Combine that with gorgeous packaging and Lavish™ makes an excellent gift for the holidays!!
