I love facial oils, and have been using them for almost 3 years now. I have seen them working way better than regular serums. I switch between different brands and formula but use them all year around. I was using The Body Shop Oils Of Life Facial oil which is my second bottle, but for some reasons my skin has been very dry lately. The oil is my favourite but quite light to tackle the situation. Recently I came across Junaili Apricot Face Oil which is perfect for dry sensitive skin.
This is a cold-press
The Junaili Apricot Face Oil comes in a glass bottle with a glass dropper. Not the best packaging I must add since it is quite fragile, but mostly facial oils come in glass bottles only. The dropper functions well and you can control the amount of product it dispenses each time.
Texture of this oil is thicker than the facial oils I have used in the past. It took me sometime to make it work, I was using a bit too much in the beginning, how I use TBS facial oil. I used to take 5-6 drops of Junaili Apricot Face Oil and massage it on my face & neck, but it used to take a long time to sink into the skin.
Then I adjusted the quantity to 2-3 drops and it worked ! Now I add 2-3 drops of this oil in my night cream and mix them in the palm, then apply on face & neck.
It takes some time to absorb completely but the results have amazed me. I used to have a dry patch on the side of my nose which makeup used to accentuate. It was there since forever, nothing worked, but ever since I have started using Junaili Apricot Face Oil the dry patch has disappeared.
Since the oil is on the heavier/ thicker side I was scared of breaking out , fortunately it worked really well for my skin and I haven’t seen any acne/pimple after using it.
The formula is intensely moisturising and makes skin smooth & supple. I can see the difference next morning, my skin looks plumper, and less tired. Due to the consistency of the oil I restrict the use to night time only.
Product claims to fade scars but I don’t have any to test it on. Maybe it work on acne marks.
I take out good 7-8 drops of the oil and massage it on my face till the oil is completely absorbed into my skin. It is like giving myself a mini facial at home and it has been working in my favour. I do it once every 7-10 days.
Junaili Apricot Face Oil is priced at Rs 400 for 30 ml , available at reverie box online
If you struggle with dry facial skin and looking for an effective & affordable facial oil than do try Junaili Apricot Face Oil. It is pure and free from chemicals & preservatives. You would need only 2-4 drops each time and this bottle would last you 3-4 months minimum.
