As a rule, I tend to avoid adding extra things to do in the bathroom to my list but after having almost 9 months of crappy skincare habits I thought I was ready to add a few extras into my skincare routine. A facial oil. Now, as a combination former adult acne kinda gal I normally run a mile from too many oils/serums on my skin, often sticking to a moisturiser in the morning and good old ANR at night but something hasn’t felt quite right, so I’ve consulted the goddess of skincare: Caroline Hirons and she has spoken………a facial oil is needed.
I’ve already talked about the amazing Sephora Miscellar Water in a previous post, as well as a few cleansing treats I enjoy regularly in this post here but I have been feeling like it’s time for a proper facial oil for a while now. I plumped (a good word because that’s exactly what it does to my skin!) for the Julie Hewett Organic Camellia Oil, from Cult Beauty, for a few different reasons. Namely, the 100% Organic tag, which means that my skin will undoubtedly love it, and the oils particular USP; fighting sunburn before it happens (which it NEVER should by the way). As I’m a Thailand regular, and love me some sun worshipping — I’ve been aiming to try things that will work outside of the UK.
Having a multi tasking product like this in your skincare arsenal means that you never have to do the annoying switcheroo when it’s time to pack — something that I personally absolutely hate, because you always end up either taking the wrong product or forgetting your most important one.
Julie Hewett Camellia Oil is available from Cult Beauty for £36.
What do you think? Do you need to add more things to your cleansing routine or do you just like to wash and go?
