I don't want to be overly dramatic but I think this must be the greatest stuff of dreams. I have said this just a few times on the blog, not many, and I stand by each one.. this is one of the best products I have ever used, it is truly amazing and everyone should have it. I talked about Viridian products before, they are a wonderful family owned-and-run company that I discovered on my 100% natural products search. They have a large range of award-winning pure vitamins, beauty oils, and speciality supplements (go here to see more about the company and some of my other Viridian favourites).
This Rose oil is a mix of the best oils you can use for your skin in their purest form. The ingredients are wonderful oils to use alone if you wanted to, especially Rosehip, Neroli and Vitamin E, however Viridan has made a wonderful mix that I cannot rave about enough. Blended for dry and dehydrated skin (which we ALL have unless you're drinking only 3 litres of pure water a day) and great for ageing skin, blemishes and acne, this premium organic ultimate oil is formulated without any synthetic fragrances or colourings and contains Rose and Neroli oil, among other oils, to restore elasticity and repair and firm dry, damaged and blemished skin. See below for the oil breakdown and benefits.*
This oil has a very short surface time on the skin which means it is rapidly absorbed without leaving any residue. I use this on everyone's face before I put one their makeup (male and female), no matter how oily their face is, especially if I am in a rush.. it works better and faster than any other cream. My great tip for everyone, and other makeup artists, is if you have to quickly apply makeup over makeup, first smooth some of this oil and it will stop your makeup caking on top of the old makeup. It is perfect for every kind of skin type, issue and complaint, and it's invaluable for makeup artists to have in their kit.. no more caked makeup no matter how dry your actors skin is, or flare ups from sensitive skins. I also love how small the bottle is, it's perfect for travelling. The only down side is it's a little pricey for 15ml, especially compared with larger bottles of pure Rosehip oil at half the price.
