Oille Natural offers two different anti-aging serums one for 20-30’s skin and one for40-50’s skin. Since I’m closer to 40 than 30, I chose to try a bottle of the 40-50’s formula. According to the bottle this Essential Oil (EO) combination provides “natural oxygenation + cell regeneration.” It will “improve appearance of wrinkles + age spots + skin tone” and is appropriate for all “mature” skin types.
My skin is very fair with noticeable blotchiness around my nose and forehead. I have large pores in particular on my nose and tend to be oily through my t-zone. I’m blessed with relatively acne-free skin, but when I do break-out it is typically on my nose or chin. As for wrinkles, every day (and every child) seems to bring more. Crows feet are not a huge issue for me, but my frown lines are cavernous (two big canyons running straight between my eyes). I’ve perfected the “disapproving mother” look and have the wrinkles to show for it.
What the Face Serum Anti-Aging Intelligence 40-50’s did for me:
- Pores shrank to nothing and oil production dropped. My skin felt like itfinally had the perfect moisture balance, wasn’t shiny, and had lost its “polka-dots” (what my 3 y.o. once called the pores on my nose)
- Tone and blotches smoothed out.
What it didn’t do:
- I did not see a noticeable change in what the cosmetics world refers to as “fine lines and wrinkles.”
- It didn’t put a dent in my age-spots, which I was kinda bummed about. Myage spots are subtle, so I was hoping this could tackle them, but no such luck. It looks like I’ll need something stronger. Overall, I was very please with this EO serum and will replace my now empty bottle as soon as I’m able. My skin feels balanced and happy! My tone is wonderfully even and although I haven’t quite got to the point where I won’t wear something as a base, I have switched to a tinted moisturizer and no longer feel the need to wear a heavier foundation. As for powder – haven’t used it in months.
A note on usage:I started by using the serum straight out of the bottle at night and in the morning, full-strength. Even though it is light-weight and absorbs quickly, it is oil. My pillowcases needed some extra washing and I found my makeup would slide off during the day. The simple solution was to add between 3-4 drops of the serum to my regular night and day cream. I still got the benefits that I felt were most important without feeling greased up.
About the reviewer:
My name is Devon. I am the busy mother of two beautiful girls and I admit to being mildly obsessed with what my husband refers to as “voodoo” (i.e. any kind of beauty lotion, potion, or elixir I can get my hands on). Be careful opening my bathroom cupboard, we may never find you under the avalanche of product.
