I was so excited to be selected to review this item for Truth in Aging! I read up on the oil & thought my skin would benefit greatly from it:
- Combats aging with the most powerful oils, including argan, grapeseed and evening primrose
- Provides the ultimate protection and repair of the lipid barrier with essential fatty acids from emu, krill and kiwi seed
- Seals in moisture and leaves the skin supple, smooth and more refined
- Prevents moisture loss and dehydration
All of these uses would be helpful to my 60 year old face! I followed the directions to apply and liked how it felt on my skin (albeit, oil on my face did feel odd to apply) The consistency was very easy to apply, but I did not like the scent at all - it has almost a fishy smell to it...
And when I woke up the next morning - I had several new blemishes around the hairline mostly, but also 2 just starting to develop on my chin - at age 60 - this is NOT the norm for my skin at all! I applied the oil in the morning before applying makeup, but removed it because I may not have allowed enough time for it to absorb & it caused my foundation to smear. I don't have enough time in the mornings to wait for absorption, so this would not be good for my morning routine. And that night, I used the oil again only to wake up the next morning with now fully developed blemishes on my chin.
So, this user will not continue with this oil - perhaps it is formulated to work with a younger skin profile.
But thank you for the opportunity to sample your product!
