The first thing I noticed about this product was the scent. With not owning a product that was scented with orange before, I wasn't sure if I would like it, however, I completely get it and I've really fallen in love with the scent. It's not over-powering and it is actually quite subtle and sweet. It's a gorgeous scent and it also slightly lingers on the skin after using. Honestly, if you haven't got an orange scented product, then you probably should.
The Facial Oil comes in a glass bottle with a pipette, which I actually really like (year 9 science class come at me). It allows me to control the amount I'm using easily, therefore I don't waste the product by using too much. At a time, I try and use 3 drops of this product as I do find that a little goes a long way and that amount is perfect to cover my entire face
Being an oil, the product is slightly runnier and watery than I thought it might be, however, this isn't a bad thing as I find it sinks into the skin very easily and hydrates it quickly.
I've been using this for the last week now and I am such a huge fan so far. Although I can't necessarily say I've noticed any anti-aging benefits, I have noticed a difference in my dry skin and general hydration of my skin. I have always struggled with dry skin on my t-zone, with the help of MONUSkin it has gotten a lot better, however, this product definitely gave it the little push it needed to help diminish it completely.
My skin feels extremely hydrated and it didn't give me any extra skin issues, therefore I am completely happy with the results. However I realise that this is a joint effort with the Japanese Orange Fast Acting Restoring Mask, therefore let's find out more about this little beauty shall we....
The Japanese Orange Fast Acting Overnight Mask aims to heal, nourish and repair the skin throughout the night.
The ingredients you can find in this product are:
Once again, this product has a gorgeous orange scent. I find that this is slightly more intense than the face oil, however, I love it maybe even more as it's such a lovely, mouth-watering scent.
- Like the Face Oil, the Seabuckthorn Fruit Oil aims to hydrate the skin as well as calming irritated or sensitive skin.
- Coconut Oil to help regulate dry, itchy or sensitive skin.
- And finally, it includes Tiare Flower which is known for its nourishing benefits and hydration of the skin.
As you can see, the product comes in a 50ml tub. Like the Face Oil, I again find that a little of this product goes a long way and just a small scoop of the restoring mask can cover the entire face. I get a small amount on my fingers and using circular motions, rub it into my face and my neck slightly.
As the product is an overnight mask, the product doesn't sink into your skin quickly as it is quite thick in consistency. It does feel quite 'heavy' on your skin to begin with, however, this is to be expected and it only takes a few minutes to start to skin into your skin.
I've not used an Overnight Mask previously, therefore I wasn't completely sure what to expect. In the morning, my skin felt the incredibly soft and smooth. It has made a genuine difference to the skin, again without any extra irritation or breakouts. I love this product for numerous reasons and even more so for the fact it's a no fuss product, you just put it on the evening and go to sleep. You don't have to wait ten minutes and wipe it off again, as I know sometimes skin care can seem a chore when you exhausted but thankfully, this is so easy to use.
Like I've already mentioned I am impressed with this duo. They have given my skincare routine that extra push it needs to help improve it even more and reduce the appearance of dry skin. I have completely fallen in love with the scent and effects these products have had on my skin. I couldn't be happier with them.
Have you tried anything from Dr Botanicals before?
