This may be the last monthly splurge post for a while as I have decided to go on a spending ban because I've already spent all my student loan ahhhh. However it was my birthday recently so I let myself have one last splurge with some birthday money before I get really strict with myself.
Having oily skin I've always assumed I can't use facial oils, however I was recently reading a post by The Sunday Girl on the best oils for oily skin and she convinced me to buy the Clarins Lotus Face Treatment Oil.
The Clarins Lotus Face Treatment oil is aimed at oily or combination skin, and is designed to balance the production of sebum. I've been massaging two drops on my face most days for about a month now and I have to admit it has made a big difference. I get really dry skin on the sides of my nose but that's also where I produce the most oil, after using the Clarins oil the dry patches have greatly improved and the oil production has decreased. This is like a Holy Grail product for me as it seems to hydrate the skin deep down, the dry/oily patches on the side of my nose used to drive me crazy as it made foundation application very difficult. My foundation is now applying better and my skin is feeling softer than ever.
here for £30
Have you tried this oil before? Do you have any recommendations for more oils that are good for oily/combination skin?
