I’m always happy to try a product that will benefit my skin type, which is usually problem free but always dry. When the opportunity to try Blissoma Solutions Restore Deep Healing Oil Serum ($35.99) came along, I couldn’t wait. Restore is unlike any other cream or serum I’ve used before. It has a green tint and a pleasant earthy or woodsy scent. To apply, you dispense one pump of the product and gently pat it onto your face after cleansing and using a toner.
I was very pleased to learn that Restore can be used around the delicate eye area. As a mature (60-year-old) woman with dry skin I use Restore every day (night as well). The first time I applied the product, I thought I might have to wipe off the excess – but to my surprise, the oil was completely absorbed after a moment or two. It leaves no residue and makeup application is no different than when using a light cream. If you are hesitant to use oil for whatever reason, you can add a few drops to your other creams and still get the benefits of Restore’s wonderful ingredients.
The founder and chemist of Blissoma promises total purity and full-label disclosure. Blissoma even makes its own herbal extracts and juice fresh organic produce in order to create the most natural, chemical-free botanical products. The green color is a result of the chlorophyll from this process. There are a myriad of fresh, organic ingredients in Restore. Each ingredient serves a specific purpose, but all combine to make this product suitable for all skin types and age ranges – young or mature skin.
Restore’s great absorbency is due to organic cranberry seed and grape seed oil. Organic rosehip oil and sea buckthorn berry (am I the only one out there who had never heard of sea buckthorn berry?) helps build collagen and defends against fine lines. Other ingredients are rich in essential fatty acids, provide protection against sun damage and have anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. At around $30 the price is quite reasonable. What more could a product offer?
In the month that I’ve been using the Blissoma Restore Serum I have become a fan. A little bit goes a long way; I still have over half of the 1-oz. bottle left. I love the soft feel of my skin and the fact that it hydrates the delicate eye area, so I can forgo using an additional cream for eyes. With all that Restore offers, I will be sure to include it into my skincare routine.
