So since my twenties have now come and gone and I grow ever closer to the mid thirties I have noticed changes in my skin. The years of abuse from sleeping in my make up (mainly after too many night out) have left my pores more visible and the moisture that I once took advantage of has all but evaporated. The skin left has been dull with dry patches and pores like rabbit burrows. I needed something to save me from this very bleak situation before it was too late… cue my saving grace Daniele de Winters facial oil!!
The Foret Precieuse clarifying facial oil does not come in cheap at £53.00 on the Daniele de Winter website and £66.00 on BeautyBay (it is currently on sale at Beauty Bay for around £20) and it was not particularly the first thing I wanted to blog about because of this, but this product is phenomenal!!
The oil comes in elegant packaging that is lovely for display if you are into that kind of thing. As you open the box you find the oil which has its own little circular cardboard base to ensure it is safe when placed back in the box. The bottle itself is sleek and quite weighted, but the first thing you will notice is the smell which is a strong lavender which despite what I have just said is not overpowering or off putting but relaxing and places me in the mindset of a spa.
So packaging and appearance done it was time to test! The first thing I noticed was there are no instructions available on or inside the box, but with a quick look online you can find them on their website (linked below). I placed drops of the oil on areas of my face and massaged for five minutes. At first it does feel a bit like I was covering myself in fish oil but after a minute once the product had had time to start soaking into the skin I could just feel how hydrating this was going to be for my face. Once I had toned, swilled and moisturised my face I was free to go on with my day. Throughout the day my face felt so nourished and soft a texture which I have not encountered for a while. It is now the day after and after washing my face last night and this morning I can still feel the texture change, the moisture and just general appearance of glowing skin.
The final verdict for this is although it is pricy, I do feel it is worth treating yourself with. It is to be used two or three times a week depending on the skins personal needs and at a bottle size of 50ml I do believe you get a lot of bang for your buck (only a few drops around the face is needed for the product to work). In all honesty it has transformed my skin and given it the TLC it really needed, it will defiantly become one of my skincare staples.
Let me know if you have used the product and had the same or different experience as I’m always interested in others opinions when it comes to beauty.
