All our face oils are designed to help you get in the right frame of mind for sleep and to nourish skin overnight. This combination of a good night’s sleep and an easy to absorb dose of nutrients mean they are the perfect thing to help you to wake up with great looking skin.
Available in three of our signature blends – from blissful rose-scented LOVE; to mood-brightening GLOW; and our jasmine-scented CALM – so you can find one to match your skin needs. Take a tour to find your perfect match here, or even better – invest in a Discovery Set and you’ll be able to try all three and sample our sleep inducing night time bath oils at the same time.
As well as the essential oils, what makes our face oils stand out from the crowd is the unique combination of vitamin rich carrier oils which they come in. We tried hundreds of combinations to get something that is just right, both in terms of texture and skin nourishment. We wanted something that was rich enough to leave skin soft and moisturised but also fast-absorbing (so there was no worries about going straight to bed and putting your head on the pillow). We also wanted to ensure we were able to provide all the nutrients skin needed during its nightly repair session – especially vitamins A & E. The winning formula is a tailor-made blend of four oils – each bringing something special to the party. Here’s the run down:
Apricot Kernel Oil:
A light, odourless oil extracted from the soft fleshy centre of an apricot stone. We’ve chosen this as our main carrier in all our After Dark Face Oils because we love the fact it is loaded with oleic acid which means it has a high affinity with human skin and makes it easily absorbed. It packs a high nutrient punch as it is naturally loaded with Vitamin A, B1, B2, B6, B17 (the richest plant source in the world) and Vitamin E.
One of the richest sources of Vitamin E known on earth, wheatgerm oil is a natural anti-oxidant and rich source of the omega-6 essential fatty acids that our cells thrive on to stay healthy. It also contains Vitamins A, B1, B2, and B6 as well as a host of handy proteins and minerals that can feed our skin as we sleep.
White Tea Seed Oil:
Technically known as Camellia Seed Oil, this easily absorbed oil is made from cold pressed wild seeds from a pure, ‘white’ version of the plant that gives us our favourite cuppa. Widely revered in Asia, it has been used in Japan for centuries as a beauty aid to condition skin, hair and nails. We’ve added it to our After Dark Bath & Face Oils and out Pulse Point Balms to give an added boost of moisturisation and for its high levels of antioxidant Vitamin A.
Rosehip Seed Oil:
A rock-star in the world of natural oils – Rosehip Seed Oil has been getting lots of attention recently as clinical research trials have shown it can dramatically improve skins moisture levels, minimising the appearance of wrinkles and smoothing skin. This natural anti-ageing oil come from the seeds of the native rose plant which grows wild in France. It’s the high levels of Vitamin A and some important skin-friendly nutrients that make it so special. Combined together they promote cell regeneration and encourage collagen and elastin levels to increase. It is also high in Vitamin E which promotes healthy skin and has powerful anti-oxidant properties. A wonder oil!
We use only the best quality oils in everything we make – hand selected from small batch growers and handled with care so the active ingredients they contain remain intact. Everything is 100% natural, made in the UK and, of course, the only animals we ever test on are ourselves.
