Happy Monday, loves!! Now, I know you may be asking yourself why I’m writing about a skincare product for oily skin when I repeatedly talk about my dry skin and products for dry skin. Hear me out, there are a couple of reasons why I picked this particular item.
This Clarins Lotus Face Treatment Oil is specifically formulated to balance and purify combination to oily skin by helping to control sebum production with the essential oils of rosemary and geranium. The lotus extract help refine skin, leaving it super soft and supple.
Some oils (not all) targeted for dry skin actually tend to leave my skin a bit oily, mostly because they’re not easily absorbed. This makes it a little hard to apply makeup. So I figured that if I tried the Lotus oil which is targeted for combination to oily skin, and helps balance the oil production, I might still get some benefits out of it without it actually drying my skin. And guess what, I was right!! My skin feels super soft and perfectly hydrated. Plus, it smells amazing!
This oil is lightweight and absorbs easily to tighten pores and also brightens the complexion. Clarins does have a Blue Orquid oil formulated for dry skin, which I still wan to try, and the Santal face oil treatment for dry and irritated skin. All of the oils are made with 100% pure plant extracts with a combination of essential aromatic oils and natural hazelnut oil. They contain no preservatives or synthetic fragrances.
This all being said, the second reason why I am talking about this oil for combination to oily skin is because I know that not all of my dear readers have dry skin, and I wanted to test out a product for those with more oily skin and give them my honest opinion that may help clarify the mentality that using an oil on oily skin is a big no no. Try this face oil treatment out if you have oily prone skin, you just never know!
