It’s almost Earth Day! Can you believe how fast this year has gone? Liam turns 25 next month and before I know it it’ll be my turn in August. Back to Earth Day though. Ever the eco-warriors, Dr Botanicals celebrated Earth Day by very kindly gifting me their Advanced Anti-Oxidant Superfood Facial Oil* (say that three times fast) and a hefty little discount for any of you who’d also like to try it.
So why should you?

Advanced Anti-Oxidant Superfood Facial Oil
Dr Botanicals Advanced Anti-Oxidant Superfood Facial Oil is their greenest product ever, which is exactly why I get to use it to celebrate earth day. It’s packed full of ingredients set to nourish, protect and repair your skin. Silver award winner at the Free From Skincare awards in 2016, you can bet on the quality.
Lately, I am super into plant-based oils and other types of skincare. I’ve recently made my own cleansing oil and my collection of facial oils is growing fairly rapidly. Contrary to popular belief, oil based products really don’t have to make your skin more oily. In fact, my skin is more balanced than ever. Dr Botanicals Anti-Oxidant Superfood Facial Oil is no different – it’s one of the lightest oils I have ever used on my skin. It absorbs super quickly, and packs a punch in the short time it’s present on the surface of your skin. It’s also the first oil I’ve found that works perfectly under foundation, so you can use a few drops in the morning to perk up you morning skin.
Dr Botanicals Advanced Anti-Oxidant Superfood Facial Oil may absorb rapidly, but the effects are incredibly long lasting. I apply the tiniest bit before my foundation (if I even bother wearing any) and it keeps my skin smooth and patch-free all day. By night, a few drops before my night cream lasts all night and keeps my skin hydrated and silky all night long.
Unlike a few other oils I’ve tried this product is so light that you barely notice it on your skin – you’re not left glowing like you’ve run a mile (or in my case, took a gentle stroll up a hill) and it doesn’t feel as though there’s a ton of product sat on your skin. I’ve seen it compared to a dry oil but to me, it feels much smoother than any dry oil I’ve ever tried.
The ingredients list is refreshingly simple, but most notably the oil contains blackcurrant seed oil, wild plum and sea minerals to revitalise hydrate and repair damaged skin. It also smells incredible if that’s your thing (it’s definitely my thing, I recently tried hemp oil and I still haven’t recovered from it).
Dr Botanicals Advanced Anti-Oxidant Superfood Facial Oil does also boast some anti-aging properties but it’s not something I’m hugely concerned about just yet. Give it another year!
