I am kinda obsessed with body and facial oils but I always worry about facial oils clogging up my pores and causing breakouts, that is not the case with the African Extracts Rooibos Daily Repair Facial Oil. Today I will be telling you all about this liquid gold in a bottle and how it has worked for my skin.
African Extracts Rooibos Daily Repair Facial Oil is a non-greasy treatment oil that protects the skin against environmental damage from the sun and pollution that causes premature ageing, it reduces the appearance of dark marks and dark spots, it helps to brighten and even skin tone restoring the skins natural radiance and a few drops at night will help restore the damage of the day.
The Daily Repair Oil is made with 100% naturally derived ingredients and because it only contains plant based ingredients it is suitable for vegans too. The formula contains; the antioxidant power of Bio-Active Rooibos plant extract which helps reduce the visible signs of ageing and boosts the skin’s natural cellular defenses against environmental stress, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Jojoba Oil and delicate essential oils of Geranium, German Chamomile, Rose, Lavender and Neem.
The oil is ideal for skin that needs daily renewal to help soothe and calm the skin while reducing the appearance of uneven skin tone. I have sensitive skin and sometimes break out in a rash if I spend a lot of time in the sun or out in nature and using this during those breakouts helps a lot by soothing and calming my skin thanks to the essential oils in the formula.
The Daily Repair Facial Oil forms part of the African Extracts Rooibos Advantage range created to fight signs of ageing. This range is recommended for people from the age of 35 but I think that it’s best to start using anti-ageing products from your mid 20’s to prevent and prolong visible signs of ageing. The results from using the Facial Oil is a brighter, radiant and even complexion.
The Daily Repair Facial Oil comes in a red and gold box which stands out, the box opens up to a 30ml see through glass bottle and gold lid. The bottle contains the golden colour facial oil which looks like liquid gold. The packaging screams luxury.
When first opening up the bottle I was fascinated by the way that the lid works. The lid is basically the dropper, when you twist the lid to open it a clear button on the top of the lid pops up and the product is sucked into the dropper, to release the oil you simply push down on the button and when closing the bottle the button on the lid will then go back in. The entire dropper gets filled in just one twist of the lid with no bubbles inside it. I was already sold by the packaging and the way that the lid works before even trying out the product ☺.
The oil has a beautiful lavender scent and is thin in texture. I use the oil day and night after cleansing and toning my face, I dispense 2-3 drops of the oil into the palm of my hand and then gently massage it onto my cheeks, forehead, chin and neck. I like to wait a minute for the product to thoroughly absorb into my skin before applying on my day or night cream. 2-3 drops is enough to cover the face and neck area as the oil is thin in texture and spreads quite easily.
The oil doesn’t feel greasy and oily on my skin as it absorbs well leaving my skin feeling soft, smooth and hydrated that I often don’t feel the need to apply on a cream after (but still do as it is recommended). The oil is also lightweight so it doesn’t feel uncomfortable on the skin. I was scared about the oil clogging up my pores causing breakouts but luckily I did not experience that. I love the great quality of this product as it works well and does what it claims to do and the bottle will last very long as only a small amount of the product is needed.
I absolutely love the packaging of this product, it is luxurious with the gold and red colours (that work so well together) and so is the actual product with its beautiful scent and amazing results. The Daily Repair Facial Oil has become one of my favourite facial oils because of the natural ingredients that it contains and it leaves my skin feeling silky soft, smooth, hydrated, soothes and calms my skin and my skin has a healthy glow and even skin tone.
African Extracts Rooibos is a proudly South African brand and it is endorsed by Beauty Without Cruelty which means that it is not tested on animals, as a huge animal lover (I love animals more than humans to be honest ☺) this is very important to me when choosing a brand.
