One could say my skin is a loose cannon.
Seriously, one minute it’s fine, the next not so much! In fact, it is so unpredictable that whatever it needs in terms of moisturizing, balancing, clarifying, declogging, exfoliating, brightening, soothing, repairing and/or nourishing – it changes almost on a daily basis. And although I have been making a conscious effort to cut down my product stash to where my bathroom cabinet no longer resembles the inside of a small to medium size apothecary, I really don’t think I’ll ever get to be the girl who is known for her bare minimum skin care routine. Humph!
To help with my high maintenance complexion, Olìe Biologique recently hooked me up with their Très Olìe: Trio of Travel Face Oils*. It includes three of their best selling oils that are suitable for “dry, oily, sensitive or combination skin to balance, detoxify and mattify with just a few drops.” Wait! What?
Olìe Biologique was founded on the simple notion that looking and feeling radiantly healthy is completely natural. With minimal packaging and maximum benefits, their 65% organic and 100% natural oils are sustainably harvested and include only pure botanical ingredients (no parabens, artificial fragrances, synthetics or chemical preservatives!) that have been proven effective throughout time.
The balancing face oil is a great daytime moisturizer. Lightweight yet potent, it absorbs quickly into the skin and wears well under makeup. Suitable for normal, combination and acne-prone skin, a hand-crafted proprietary blend of jojoba, Sacha inchi, Baobab, and Tamanu contain antioxidants to protect against environmental exposure, combat premature aging, regulate sebum production and stimulate formation of new tissue. The scent is subtle and pleasant. I’d describe it as a unique combination of an uplifting herbal smell with hints of refreshing citrus.
The rejuvenating face oil is my favorite of the bunch! It is wonderful to use as a nighttime moisturizer, especially if you have dull or dry skin. With skin plumping Camellia and a trifecta of roses (Rosehip, Rose Bulgar and Rose Geranium), the rejuvenating face oil boosts collagen and fades hyperpigmentation caused by sun damage and acne scars. Full disclosure: I have not used this oil long enough to see true long term results regarding a more even skin tone but I can definitely attest to my skin being well hydrated and glowy the next morning. The smell is an added bonus: It vaguely reminds me of my favorite LURK perfume – so lovely and elegant!
One whiff of the calming face oil and you feel instantly relaxed! It is a must for stressed out skin moments or for everyday use to protect your pretty face and heal woes such as acne, rosacea, eczema and scarring. Lavender and Chamomile calm, tone and balance your skin while organic Marula and Camellia oil add anti-aging benefits. I enjoy this oil on its own on days when my skin is especially irritated from the dry Arizona heat or when I feel some pesky breakouts coming on. I also mix it with either of the other oils for an added soothing effect when needed.
As you can tell, I am very impressed with Olìe Biologique and their Travel Trio. Make sure you get yours in time for all your trips this summer (code healthyhaus will give you 15% off from now until 6/17/16) as the oils come in compact, leak-proof and TSA approved glass dropper bottles. You can also buy each one separately which probably lasts up to 4-6 weeks given that a couple of drops are all you need. And whether you are jetting around the world or vacationing in your backyard, remember that travel sizes (unlike regular old samples) are always a great way to really experience a product before investing in a full size bottle!
Ready to try these fabulous face oils for yourself? I have teamed up with Olìe Biologique to give away a Travel Trio (a $50.00 value) to one lucky Healthy Haus reader. Fingers crossed!
