I’ve always been slightly wary of facial oils as my skin leans more towards greasy or combination. But I have been using No7 body oil on my legs for a few years and oil on my hair too and love both, so was keen to give the new No7 Youthful Replenishing Facial Oil a go.
The new No7 facial oil is a blend of natural oils and vitamins that keep skin soft, nourished and conditioned, while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in just four weeks.
I haven’t been using the oil for four weeks yet but have been using it in the evenings for the past week and thought I’d share my thoughts so far.
I’ve been trying to moisturise and take better care of my skin in the lead up to my wedding (in less than five months time!). So trialling the facial oil has helped to add a new dimension to my skin care regime.
As I said, my skin does lean towards greasy so I have been using the oil in the evenings, rather than mornings when I’d have to put make-up over the top.
It says to use 2-3 drops of the oil but using this in one go seems to leave little for the entire face. So instead, I have been using a drop on each cheek and a third drop for my T-zone. This seems to work better.
It is greasy but it does seem to sink in quite quickly and leaves my skin feeling silky soft in the morning.
No7 Advisor Rachel Parish told us: “Throughout the colder months, more women turn to us to find out how they can keep their skin looking hydrated and radiant- a facial oil is the perfect way to do this!
“Simply apply 2-3 drops of new No7 Youthful Replenishing Facial Oil on to cleansed skin and massage in circular motions over your face and neck, being sure to avoid the eye area.
“It can be used as part of your daily cleansing regime, or alongside your favourite No7 night cream for an added moisture boost.”
NEW No7 Youthful Replenishing Facial Oil will cost £23 and will be available exclusively in Boots and on boots.com from March.
