Why Christie Brinkley's Illuminating Facial Oil is my new skincare staple!RSS Feed
If you have been visiting my blog for any amount of time, you may know that I am a strong believer in the power of oil. I have learned that oil can be an amazing cleanser, moisturiser, and a whole list of possible uses when it comes to beauty and skincare. I was always taught that oil on your face was a "bad thing," but over the last three years I have been using essential oils and coconut oil on my skin, and have had the best skin of my life! I certainly never saw that coming at age 28.
I have used different "cleansing oils" on my face for the last few years, and I have discovered that the oils are more gentle, clean my skin better, and my skin truly looks more clear and radiant than it ever did when I used traditional facial cleansers. I was now prepared to hunt down more oil based skincare products, to see if I would continue to see bettering results. I was sent this lovely Illuminating Facial Oil from Christie Brinkley Beauty. Christie Brinkley is a shining star, never showing her age, so I thought that her line would be a great pleace to start, as my skin is not exactly as youthful as my early days!
I am in love with every aspect of this product from the gorgeous light blue glass bottle, to the convient dropper included in the bottle. The oil itself has a lovely formula that has a super light and extra silky texture! You are to apply this oil onto freshly cleansed skin, and to follow up with a moisturiser. I love that it actuallly does add illumination to the oarts of my face where the light hits, without looking greasy or artificial... it's like a perfect natural highlight! This serum smells lightly of something FRESH, that I cannot put my finger on, but with all of the botanical ingredients it could be a general combination of scents. I can apply my makeup without compromising the application or longwear of any of my foundations!
In conclusion, I highly reccomend that any skin type give this luxurious facial oil a try! It has done wonders to balance my skin. I live in Florida, where humidity and heat often distress my skin, I feel as if this oil has been repairing and even protecting my skin from further drying or damage! I hope that this product will be in my life for years to come, and I cannot wait to try more of Christie Brinkley's amazing skincare line
