Customer Reviews

I love the feel and texture of The Rich Cream and the new Oil, mixed together, they keep my skin beautifully hydrated. My complexion is brighter!


I recently bought The Face Oil and that is spectacular especially after laser treatments.

I get a glow like no other. Especially when used with the oil. I find using both Rich Cream and oil combined, it gives me the most nourishment especially for my dry ageing skin.

The Face Oil FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

Where do I use it in my routine?

The Face Oil can be used alone as a moisturizer in the final step of your routine. Or, to lock in hydration, it can be applied after The Cream or The Rich Cream - by gently patting 2-3 drops of oil onto the face.

For very dry skin types, The Face Oil can also be mixed with The Cream or The Rich Cream for an intensely moisturizing experience.

If using retinols, acids or serums, we recommend applying The Face Oil as the final step, once the other products have fully absorbed, to create a comforting and nourishing final layer in your skincare routine.

Can I use this around my eyes?

While The Face Oil’s nourishing formula will promote skin that looks firmer and smoother, as well as working to soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, we do not recommend applying too close to the eye.

Is it fragrance-free, vegan-friendly and free from?

Yes, The Face Oil is free from gluten, parabens, mineral oils, sulfates (SLS, SLES) and DEA. The Face Oil is vegan.

The Face Oil is unscented, with no fragrance added. However, the formula has a light, natural scent - a hint of the botanical ingredients that contribute to the efficacy of the product.

Is this oil suitable for all skin types?

Yes, The Face Oil is formulated for all skin types, including sensitive, and both men and women can use it in their routines. The Face Oil combines an ultra-nourishing blend of ingredients, including restorative argan oil and soothing Karanja Oil, however we recommend checking the ingredients carefully if you have very sensitive skin and consulting your doctor if you have any concerns.

How is this different to The Body Oil?

The Face Oil is a different, more concentrated formula than The Body Oil. It is targeted and more suitable for the delicate skin on the face.
