I love facial oils. There is something about them that is just so luxurious and my dry skin just sucks them up. I find many facial oils absorb much better into my skin that skin creams do. This summer L’Oreal released their new Age Perfect Hydra Nutrition Glow Renewal Facial Oil and Replenishing Cream ($29.99 CAD each). I wasn’t sure what to expect from my first “drugstore” facial oil experience but I must say I’m impressed.
The Glow Renewal Facial Oil is designed for all skin types and contains the following essential and precious oils:
- English Lavender
- Orange Peel
- Roman Chamomile
- Rose Petal
There are so many benefits to these oils including their antioxidant and antibacterial properties. They protect collagen as well as promote collagen and elastin regeneration. It is lightweight and non greasy, absorbing quickly to hydrate and nourish dull, dry and mature skin. There is no fear of clogging pores so even those who are afraid of the world oil should not be afraid to try a facial oil. One of the best things about them, and the L’Oreal Glow Renewal is no exception, is their soothing and calming qualities and aromatherapy effect with their intoxicating scents.
While I recommend the facial oil for all skin types I think the day/night cream is best reserved for those with dry skin like myself. It is incredibly rich and moisturizing.
