Every time I read about a new serum or facial cream, I start fidgeting to try it. While some classify as awesome finds, few end up as disasters 🙁 As I have very dry skin, I do not encounter acne flare-ups, but instead, I have to deal with creams which are not hydrating enough. I usually have almond oil or olive oil to the rescue so that I can mix a few drops of the oil in cream to make them more moisturizing. Till recently, I had been using Kate Somerville’s Dilo Oil, but it was time to try something different. I had read about Aura Cacia’s Rosehip Oil and tamanu oil, so was looking forward to try the Harmonizing Grapeseed oil.
Aura Cacia Harmonizing Grapeseed Natural Skin Care Oil Packaging:
The oil comes in a dark hued plastic bottle with a flip top cap. On squeezing the bottle, instead of pouring the oil in drops, the dispenser spurts out. This makes it very inconvenient as I usually need only few drops of oil but every time I end up with more than the required amount. The oil is completely colorless and odorlesswith light viscous texture.
$4.99 for 4 oz. (118 ml).
My Experience with Aura Cacia Harmonizing Grapeseed Natural Skin Care Oil:
I take one squirt of the oil, from which I use a few drops to blend with my cream for facial application and rest of the oil, I use as my hand moisturizer. The oil acts as a very good add-on to the cream. It blends very well on my face. The oil acts as a barrier to prevent any further moisture loss. It initially forms an oily layer, but gets completely absorbed in the skin. As I have dry skin, I do not find it very greasy or uncomfortable. In fact, using this oil has helped in improving my skin texture.
In the evening, I use the oil by itself after washing my face. The oil provides very good moisturization throughout the night. The next day, my skin feels very hydrated and moisturized. It makes my skin feel healthier and more nourished.
Along with grape seed oil, it also contains vitamin E for providing additional nourishment. The grape seed oil provides skin-nourishing fatty acids. I have also used this oil in combination with other oils like almond oil or olive oil and it has been equally beneficial. This oil is going to be very useful in all seasons.
The oil is completely fragrance free which I find it very convenient to use. Though I picked up the oil for my face, I have also used it for hands and hair ends to control flyaways. I found the oil to be a very good multitasking product.
I really like that the oil is paraben free and without any preservatives and chemical products. It is indeed a harmonizing product as it provides an admirable balance to the skin. It has been a very good moisturizer for my dry skin.
