Fountain of Youth in a bottle*




I am a huge fan of introducing essential oils into my haircare routine because they always seem to work miracles. However, up until week and a half a go, i'd never tried them as part of my skin care routine. Which is ridiculous considering how much I love them!

I've been trying the Oz Naturals 'Vitamin C Serum' which they claim is 'the best vitamin C serum for your face.' Bold statement I know, but I completely agree.

If you've read any of my make-up posts before, you'll be aware that I struggle with under eye products because of the texture of my skin which make my foundation and concealer look cakey. Not good when you're going for the natural look. It's something i've battled with for years and no under eye specific cream has ever worked quite like this one. My skin is so much smoother and definitely a lot firmer which is a dream come true, I can put on my make-up, in a rush and not have to worry about spending 15 minutes blending to get rid of the horrible "I used a shovel to do my make-up look.

The serum is made up of mostly organic products such a Hyaluronic Acid (boosts collagen production), Ferulic Acid (a natural plant based antioxidant) and a blend of Vitamin E and C. It is beautiful to apply, the small pipette makes is easy to get a sensible amount onto a cotton pad which i've been dabbing onto my skin daily before applying moisturiser. It soaks in quickly and doesn't sit on the skin so for those of you with oily skin, I would imagine this would be a dream. The 30ml bottle is small but a little goes a long way.

The serum is designed to target signs ageing and make your skin firmer and more radiant. Granted, I'm only 22 so don't really have to worry about wrinkles and fine lines just yet but you've got to start somewhere. It's nice to know I have a ageing preventative in my skincare routine. And plus, I enjoy a hot holiday just as much as the next person, skin damage because of the sun is something I worry about all the time. The Hyaluronic Acid in the serum will help the skin cells repair after time in the sun so it's definitely got a worthy place in my skincare routine that's for sure.

And finally, not forgetting the product is not tested on animals. Which for any cosmetic or beauty related product to be cruelty free is a rare find in today's market and something that i'll always be more enthusiastic talking about.

I'd love to know if you're using any essential oil products in your skincare routine, i'm interested to learn/try more seeing as it went so well first time around. If you want to pick up the product i've been trying, you can here.

Love always,
Melissa

  1. Do you think it's worth it for the price? I'm so bad with my skincare routine, half the time I don't take my makeup off before bed, so I really need to get into a proper routine with good products. x
