{oMoi! Facial Oil} Hand-Made in London

Hello my Beauties,

as mentioned to you in my Shu Uemura 6♥Princess Anti/Oxi Cleansing Oil – Review a few weeks ago, this year i keep discovering new brands, that make healthy alternatives to the conventional facial creams and gels on the market. 
Recently i’ve been keeping my eyes on facial oils, since i find it to be quite fascinating, what an oil can actually do for your skin. 

There was always a misconception about how my skin would feel greasy afterwards and how it would make me break out. – Beauty expression by Luchessa.

And then i tried the {oMoi! Facial Oil}, a product handcrafted in London by Kristèle Sun from My Beauty Time, an expert in makeup & skin care.
oMoi Relaxing and Regenerating Facial OilWhat is oMoi?
The brand was born of the idea, that at the end of the day all of us need to unwind and have some relaxing time, to restore our energy.

“omoi”, 思い, in Japanese means to “emotion” – the feeling of well-being when using oMoi! It also refers to the idea of “Oh me!” (Oh Moi!) in French, for some “me time”. 

Ingredients:
Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Oil (Sweet Almond Oil), Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Oil (Jojoba Oil), Citrus Aurantium Dulcis Oil (Sweet Orange Oil), Pelargonium Graveolens Flower Oil (Geranium essential oil), Boswellia Carterii Oil (Frankincense), Citral (Citral Essential Oil), Citronellol, Geraniol, Limonene (odor constituent of citrus), Linalool.

Beneficial Properties:
If we take a look at the first ingredients, we will find sweet almond oil, jojoba oil and sweet orange oil on the list. Let’s break down the benefits of these three.

*Sweet Almond Oil – full of vitamins primarily needed for healthy skin and hair. It’s a great oil for a facial massage right before bedtime. It helps to reduce dark circles and prevents aging.

*Jojoba Oil – is actually a great moisturizer just by itself, because it’s quite mild. The wonderful aspect of this oil is, that it already contains almost all of the needed vitamins & minerals essential for our healthy skin, like vitamin E, copper, zinc, selenium, iodine, chromium and B-complex.

*Sweet Oil – is extracted from the actual peel of the fruit itself through the process of cold pressing and smells light and sweet as the result. Also this oil is being known for curing cracked and very dry skin.

If we look at the mix of just these three ingredients, we can already see that the oMoi Facial Oil not only helps you to reduce dark circles and provide your skin with the much-needed Vitamin E, but also provides moisture to your much dryer feeling face during the colder season. 

How to use it?
The oMoi facial oil comes in a 30ml glass bottle with a really handy pipette, which makes it incredibly easy to get as many drops, as needed.
For each use i get 4 drops on to my clean hand, so the oil can actually warm up a little in my palm and apply it from there to my face. While spreading it, i massage the oil a little bit in, which has a relaxing effect and i can also inhale the essential oils. 

If you have a rather dry skin, you can even use this oil as your daily moisturizer before applying your make up. I use it instead of my night cream and wake up with a healthy evenly restored face.

Price:
oMoi facial oil is being sold at My Beauty Time Store and retails for about €28. 

Verdict:
I didn’t think i’d like the oil that much in the beginning, as i was still struggling with my misconception about facial oils in general. I always thought – oil would only be good for people with dry skin, but not for my combination & sensitive one.
But what i found out was, that after using facial wipes and especially cleansing oils to take my makeup off at night, my face needs to restore its natural moisture balance, and that’s when i really like to apply the oMoi oil. And when i wake up in the morning, my skin feels great & even relaxed somehow.

I’ve been using the oil for almost 6 weeks now and about 1/3 of the bottle is gone. So i will probably have the joy of using this product for about 4 months, which basically makes it €7 a month. Not bad for a natural product, don’t you find?

Btw: My mom, who’s obviously over 50 tried the oMoi facial oil as well & liked it for the same properties. She said, her skin even absorbed the oil after 3-4 hours almost completely.
See – our skin is thirsty!

I’d really recommend having a further look at the oMoi brand, as well as it’s owner Kristele, a working makeup artist, who i interviewed last year.
