PurErb Purity Renewing Facial Oil
If you’re passionate about skincare, by now you’ve heard all the rage about facial oils. For those of you with oily or combination skin like me, you may have shied away from using such oils in the belief that you don’t need more oil on top of oil. However, this is simply not the way facial oils work.
Many of the issues plaguing those with combination, oily or acne-prone skin are in fact due to insufficient hydration, exacerbating the root issue thereby causing our skin to produce more oil. It’s a vicious cycle. For those with normal to dry skin, adding a facial oil to your routine is a no brainer. The right facial oil can not only solve many issues your skin is already facing but also enhance the penetration of other products such as serums and moisturizers.
I recently discovered and began doing features on an aromatherapy-focused skincare brand named PurErb.
The latest product from PurErb’s line I’ve tried is the Purity Renewing Facial Oil, whose purpose is to calm and focus the mind while providing deep hydration. If you’re a fan of non-floral scents and prefer a more back to nature scent, the Purity Renewing Facial Oil will suit you. Including ingredients such as Macadamia, Argan, Juniper, Tea Tree, Carrot Seed and Patchouli, this lightly yellow-hued oil is perfect for nighttime use, post Toner and pre-serums, treatments or moisturizers.
If you have very dry skin, you can likely get away with using this in your morning routine and not appear shiny. If you have combination/oily skin like mine, you’ll want to use this exclusively as part of your nighttime routine to enhance the absorption of other skincare treatments you may use. It may seem counter-intuitive but in my experience the past year since using facial oils, in the daytime, my face is far less oily and appears clear, bright and healthy instead of the oil slick it once used to be after just a few hours post washing.
Using PurErb’s Purity Renewing Facial Oil at night provides a lovely woodsy scent that lightly lingers, helps with light headaches even and provides an extra layer of deep hydration, much needed once you hit your 30’s. PurErb offers two other scents to match your specific mood and skincare needs- the Serenity Calming Facial Oil and the Vitality Energizing Facial Oil, each with a unique set of ingredients and aromatherapy properties.
At US $75 for a 1 oz bottle that lasts up to 5 months with once daily use, for those of you who love aromatherapy skincare, PurErb’s facial oils are a must have part of your daily skincare routine.
