Oilixia Brilliance Facial Oil

The Super 18!
It's not a secret that I love - love - love oils. That glide, the glow, the benefits. Some oils can be heavy but you should use oils according to your skin type but what about an oil blend that has 18 naturally sourced oils. Brilliance Facial Oil is that one...18 oils infused with 3 patented activities to give a more radiant, visibly smooth and firmer feeling skin.

Oils included:
Fractionated Coconut Oil, Sunflower Seed Oil, Olive Fruit Oil, Jojoba Seed Oil, Camellia Seed Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, Rosehip Fruit Oil, Argan Kernel Oil, Passion Seed Oil, Rice Bran Oil, Safflower Seed Oil, Kahai Seed Oil, Macadamia Seed Oil, Neroli Flower Oil, Lavender Herb Oil, Bergamot Fruit Oil, Patchouli Oil & Carrot Seed Oil.

This plant oil blend is super rich in vitamins A, C and E. Giving the skin a lot of protection and benefits. The Omega 3, 6 and 9 is going to help the skin retain its moisture levels meaning that your skin will be soft, supple and hydrated. With the Vitamin A, you're getting Retinol in the skin which is that old age ingredient to help eliminate ageing. Neroli, lavender, bergamot and patchouli will leave the skin delicately scented.

With all those benefits and oils, it's hard to say anything but good. The most surprising factor is the blend isn't heavy in the slightest. I find I don't need a lot of the oil, it advises you to use 1 to 2 pumps but for me 2 is way too much. With the one pump I use my right hand and tap my fingers into the oil and gently pat it on my skin & the remainder I use on my neck and then work my way from the base of my neck upwards, massage and work the oil into the skin.

The scent is light and there's a very nice healthy glow afterwards. I've not broken out while using this but I've also taken a different approach to my skincare as of late. We all know pigmentation is the devil to my skin so any little spot, results in pigmentation and more aftercare but I'm learning less is more and of course diet comes into play but this oil also helps pigmentation with the various oils that help pigmentation. This oil being light, could be used twice a day, I've used it in the morning also. I could see it benefiting different skin types as I have combination skin, normal but oily and we all know oil can battle oil, this miracle blend is welcome.

Layer Your Skincare
Rule of thumb :- Apply light to heavy.
I prefer to let each layer especially at night to have time to sink into the skin. Otherwise I personally feel it's just one slick oil patch on my face. Giving it time to absorb by either watching something for 5 minutes, have a drink, watch snapchat videos (Snap ID: CookieCaine if you're on there).

Plus make sure your hands are always clean & sanitised, I keep a sanitiser on my dressing table. Germs be gone.

Morning I wash & tone my face and will use a light moisturiser with SPF (Fade Out Day Cream SPF 25) sometimes I add the Brilliance Facial Oil.

But at night it differs as I want this time to let my skin work & repair.

Nighttime If I've got makeup on (rare), I'll use an oil to take it off (L'occitane Shea Butter Cleansing Oil or just Jojoba Oil) and proceed to wash & exfoliate. Toner or Treatment - currently using Eminence Bright Skin Licorice Root Exfoliating Peel. Serum - MooGoo Vitamin C Eye Serum. Moisturiser - Dr. LeWinn's Even Tone Lightning Cream (discontinued) or Fade Out Night Cream. Eye Cream - MooGoo Vitamin C Eye Serum. Oil - Brilliance Facial Oil (never to the under eye). Lip balm - Lucas Pawpaw.
