Today I like to talk about the newly launched Glow Oil from Medik8;

I have to be completely honest and admit that I’ve not always been brave enough to use face oils, as with combination skin, I’ve simply been scared that they would make my skin even more congested and make it break out. But that is not always the case, and luckily, definitely not with the Medik8 Glow Oil.

This new Glow Oil contains a combination of Vitamin C to hydrate and repair, plus a blend of 12 essential oils, which combined make an ultra-light and silky oil that instantly gives the skin a beautiful radiant glow, and over time helps repair and protect the skin from environmental damage whilst minimising visible signs of ageing.

A beautiful, ultra silky and fast absorbing dry facial oil containing powerful antioxidant to instantly give a youthful glow and radiant skin texture. This elegant oil is blended for all skin types and ages, with a subtle floral fragrance for a truly pampering feel.

Some of the key ingredients in the Glow Oil are;
Vitamin C - to neutralise free radicals and minimise the visible signs of skin ageing.

Hemp seed Oil and Inca Omega Oil – to restore the skin’s barrier function, and minimise skin damage caused by free radicals.
Rose Otto Oil and Cinnamon Leaf Oil - to uplift, nourish and refresh skin, to maintain healthy cellular renewal.

Geranium Oil – for its toning and antibacterial benefits, and to help increase circulation, to improve the overall health of the skin.

Combined, these ingredients help hydrate, restore and nourish the skin and help increase elasticity of the skin, while improving radiance and brightening the complexion, all while repairing and protecting the skin from environmental damage and minimising visible signs of ageing.
The Glow Oil is best used twice a day, just after cleansing the skin, over you serum and before moisturiser, and it needs to be blended into the whole face, neck and décolletage area

The Oil comes in a little glass bottle with a nifty pipette while makes it super easy to dispense just a few drops as needed. It absorbs instantly into the skin leaving it feel silky soft and smooth, without any greasy feel or residue. Rather it has a leaves the skin with a nice dewy and radiant glow. You can also instantly feel that the Oil is adding intense moisture to the skin, but again, it does so without clogging up my skin.
After having used the Glow Oil for over a month, I have to say that I am impressed at the difference it has done to the look of my skin. With a baby and a toddler, sleep is very precious at our house, so no longer getting my required beauty sleep at night, I am often (= mostly) tired, which does show with my skin consequently looking dull, but the Glow Oil not only makes an immediate difference, I am also sure that day by day my skin is looking more and more alive as it has a more radiant and lit-from-within glow. It is naturally an additional step you’ll need to add to your skin care regime, in addition to serum and moisturiser, but if you’ve got the time and can afford the splurge, then I highly recommend that you give it a try, you won’t be disappointed.
