We have spoken a lot about loads of different types of facial oils here on the Green Keratin blog, all with different but equally amazing central ingredients. And this week, it is the turn of our Rosaforte C Magnificent Oil Elixir.
By now, I’m sure I don’t need to preach to you about how revolutionary facial oils can be within your skincare routine. But, in case you’re still not convinced, then why not read about some of our other oils? Although it can seem odd to massage oil into your face. Trust me, it will soon become one of the most relaxing and anticipated parts of your beauty routine.
Not only are facial oils an incredibly relaxing aspect of skin care, but they are also great for tackling numerous skincare issues. And that is precisely where the Rosaforte C Magnificent Oil Elixir comes in. We call this an Oil Elixir because it is a wonderful blend of natural and organic oils.
This powerhouse formula is perfect to help combat skin concerns such as: lacklustre looking skin, a lack of radiance, uneven skin tone, and signs of ageing. This product is suitable for all skin types.
Organic Rosehip Oil
Rosehip oil is harvested straight from the seeds of rose bushes. It has tons of amazing skin care benefits, which is what makes it the perfect central ingredient for this Oil Elixir.
Rosehip Oil is omega rich, which means that it contains all the lovely fatty acids needed to keep your dry skin at bay! Because it's so incredibly moisturising, it is perfect for those with dry skin types. These moisturising properties also make it amazing for more mature skin types, because when your skin is hydrated, the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles is greatly reduced. These fatty acids also act as an anti-inflammatory. So, if you find that your skin is prone to becoming red and blotchy, then you need to add this oil into the skin care routine.
Quick Tip: You can also apply this oil to other dry areas of the body such as heels, elbows and knees! This product is by no means just limited to the face, which means you are getting loads of bang for your buck!
Continuing with the never-ending list of the benefits of Rosehip Oil, it also has amazing astringent properties. This means that it can help to tighten pores and brighten the skin, this is fantastic for giving your skin an all-round better texture. This will make your skin look more naturally radiant, but it is also great for any makeup lovers out there. Tighter pores will prevent any foundation or concealer from settling into them, making them look larger than they are!
Vitamin C Ester (Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate)
Vitamin C Ester is a derivative from Vitamin C. It is praised within the skin care community because it is a more stable form of Vitamin C. This means that it can penetrate more easily into the upper layers of the skin and it has less potential to break down due to environmental exposure.
Vitamin C Ester is great at supporting some of the skin care benefits found in Rosehip Oil. With regular use, Vitamin C Ester improves skin elasticity by stimulating the collagen fibres within the skin to make it look tighter and diminish the appearance of wrinkles. As well as this, it is also great for combating hyper-pigmentation by supporting the skins natural healing process. Also, its antioxidative properties are great for addressing other skin damage, and helping your skin to look happy and healthy.
Damask Rose Otto Oil
Damask Rose Otto oil is one of the most luxurious ingredients in this Oil Elixir. Damask Rose Otto Oil is steam distilled from rose petals, even the process sounds like luxury! This process makes it very pure and free from any solvents that are used in more chemical processes. Because of its purity, it is also praised for its aromatherapy uses.
As with many of the ingredients in this elixir, Damask Rose Otto Oil is a great antioxidant, which promotes cell turnover, stimulating skin cells back into production. It is has amazing antibacterial properties which helps to combat blemishes, making this elixir suitable even for those with acne or blemish-prone skin. As well as all this, it also helps to provide the skin with an extra hydration boost!
Damask Rose Otto Oil, along with the Organic Rosehip Oil within the formula, give this Oil Elixir a beautiful, fresh rose scent.
Organic Sea Buckthorn Fruit Oil
Before testing out this Oil Elixir, I had never heard of Organic Sea Buckthorn Fruit Oil, but let me tell you, I am so glad I have discovered it! Sea Buckthorn Fruit Oil contains loads of nutrients, proteins and essential fatty acids, which is great for keeping the skin looking and feeling healthy!
This ingredient has really high concentrations of both Vitamin C and Vitamin E. The high Vitamin E concentrations really help to keep the skin soft and hydrated because it is able to deeply penetrate into the skin, which enables it to really cling to hydration. This keeps the skin looking plump and radiant, who wouldn’t want that?
Tips for Application
Because this oil is incredibly lightweight, it is suitable to be used either in the morning or the evening. This versatility makes this product perfect for those who struggle with introducing new products into their routine.
After cleansing and toning, all you have to do is massage a couple of drops of this oil into the skin. Then you can let this beautiful oil elixir do the rest! If your skin is feeling particularly dry, feel free to follow on with your favourite moisturiser.
This product is ideal to be used along with the other products from our Rosaforte™collection; Rosaforte™ Magnificent Cleansing Balm, Rosaforte™ Magnificent Moisture Cream and Rosaforte™ and the Radiance Gel Serum (Coming Soon!)
