Scientific Side: Herbivore's Phoenix Facial Oil
As huge fans of the Herbivore brand, we wanted to analyze one of their most expensive products, the Orchid Facial Oil, whether or not it’s worth the price and if it really will make your skin feel hydrated and youthful because of the ingredients.
One of the best ingredients for hydrating skin, Orchid extract comes from the orchid flower and contains a natural humectant that helps to build up the moisture barrier between the skin. It also contains zinc, calcium and magnesium.
This oil is great for helping to seal the barrier between the skin and moisture, and to fight hyper pigmentation. This is extracted from olives and has a light protective property and is used in homemade beauty products to fight redness.
Jasmine Sambac Oil
Another brightening oil, Jasmine Sambac is used in many beauty products as a natural moisturizer, brightener and is found very often in perfumes for is calming scent. Also packed with ingredients that help to improve skin’s elasticity and moisture content.
Is it Worth It?
This oil is extremely popular with all skin types, but is especially effective for dry skin. It helps to truly moisturize parts of the skin that usual oils have trouble targeting. Using ingredients that fortify the moisture barrier of your skin, and that encourage locking that moisture in, dry skin is no match for this oil. Many users also found that it stopped their hormonal acne around that time of the month, and that helped clear up extremely dry patches. The ingredients in this oil are ones commonly used in natural beauty for dry skin and moisture, and therefore, have exactly that effect on the skin as told by reviewers. The price tag reflects on the purity and kinds of ingredients used in this oil, and while it may be a product that breaks the bank every once in a while, it’s the natural, potent ingredients that will give you beautiful, moisturized skin.
