I will admit that I was pretty excited about reviewing Mukti Antioxidant Facial Oil Omega 3,6,9 ($43). The facial oil has all of the things that I look for these days when buying skin care – natural ingredients, organic, chemical free, and a company whose philosophy I can support. Mukti products are certified organic by the Organic Food Chain and as well as produced in small batches daily so you know that you are getting fresh products. They use indigenous Australian native extracts in their products too.
When I got asked to review to this oil, I was already using an argan/rosehip oil blend as my nighttime moisturizer so the Mukti oil was an easy product to switch to as my moisturizer. The Mukti facial oil has kakadu plum, Davidson plum, blue cypress seed, and mango seed bioextracts in addition to a blend of oils including macadamia nut, rosehip, carrot seed, and chia seed. The ingredient list is just delicious. Basically the oil includes vitamins, herbs, oils, and extracts that I consume on a daily basis. To me, if I am eating it to benefit my insides, imagine what it will do to my outside.
I have taken good care of my skin all of my life. I have worn sunscreen religiously since I was 16 so my 42-year old skin looks younger than it is. That being said, I do suffer from dryness and have some forehead wrinkles. I used the oil nightly as my moisturizer. While I didn’t notice a great difference in my forehead wrinkles, they did seem softer and less pronounced. The true benefit to this oil is moisture. I awoke each morning with soft, plump and dare I say glowing skin. I did a test comparing my original argan/rosehip oil to the Mukti antioxidant facial oil, and the Mukti oil won hands down. There was plumpness there when I awoke that I didn’t experience with my original nightly oil. I can only chalk it up to the Omega 3-6-9 blend must be skin food.
This is not a miracle product, but it is a good quality product that provides natural moisture and other benefits to your skin. As a big believer in the benefits of using oil on your face, this is a winner. It has replaced argan oil as my new nighttime moisturizer, and I am curious enough to want to try other Mukti products.
On a side note, you can use the oil to remove your eye makeup as well. I tried it and it works, but this oil is too precious to be used as a makeup remover. I’ll stick to coconut oil.
