Daily Prep - Protecting Facial Oil


Serious moisture to smooth and protect 

A potent blend of plant oils to lock in moisture, soften skin and quench thirsty complexions.

Did you know…

It can be challenging, even with the best balanced diet intentions, to get enough Gamma Linoleic Acid (GLA) into your body. That’s why people taking evening primrose supplements for things like PMS also often say their skin looks better. We’re all for an inside and outside approach.

Without getting all A’Level science about it, free radicals are unstable molecules that can wreak havoc on your skin. Pollution in any form contributes to the level of free radicals on your skin. Antioxidants are one of the best ways of helping the skin fight them off.

Three things people love about this product

While this oil feels light on your skin, it’s packed with natural antioxidants that help the skin to feel stronger and less reactive to whatever’s going on in your indoor and outdoor environment.

Your skin feels like it’s really locked in all the moisture and goodness. It takes away that tight feeling but also doesn’t leave skin feeling overloaded, particularly if you’re prone to oiler skin.

As this sinks into your skin quickly, and without leaving an oily film on your skin, then it’s ideal if you’re going to be following up with an SPF product for extra protection, or if you’re applying foundation.

How to use 

Gently massage 2 to 3 drops into clean skin. We use Calm Shift Cleansing Facial Balm first, as it leaves skin clean but not stripped of the essential components of your skin barrier. 

Ideal for use morning or night. If your skin feels particularly tight or dry, then we’d use Deep Feed Nourishing Facial Serum overnight.
