Lyonsleaf Marshmellow Soften and Rejuvenate Facial Oil is an affordable all natural facial oil, which deeply nourishes and moisturizes the skin.
I’ve got this Lyonsleaf Marshmellow Facial Oil in my July 2017 Love Lula Beauty Box, so it’s taken quite a while for it to be the next in line of the green beauty facial products, specifically facial oils, for me to try; I do not like having many, especially of the same category, products opened all at once, so I do my very best to first use up one before opening the next.
This was my first time trying anything from this affordable British green beauty brand called Lyonsleaf (another great reason to sign up for the Love Lula Beauty Box and discover brands and/or products previously unfamiliar with), and I’m really pleased with this product: all natural ingredients, working nicely on skin and the facial oil is also very affordable – you really don’t have to spend a lot of money in order to get a facial oil, which will check nearly all the expectations and demands of a good, if not even a great facial oil – and Lyonsleaf Marshmellow Facial Oil can attest for that.
Lyonsleaf Marshmellow Facial Oil comes in a handy 30ml bottle with a pump: for a more precise application and for the facial oil to be protected from going rancid. It’s of a golden yellow color and medium thick texture; the scent is quite strong, and I really like it – vetiver and geranium – lovely, indeed!
I’ve been using two pumps of this oil for my face and neck; the oil absorbs really fast, even to the point of being matte, provided you don’t go overboard with the amount of application, of course. With about 1/5 of the oil remaining, I’ve been using it nearly exclusively for the past 3 months for my evening routine: after cleansing and toning. Sometimes, I’ve been using it in combination with Madara SOS Mask.
Given the ingredients this facial oil consists of, you can expect a burst of vitamins, antioxidants, fatty acids and nourishing and calming effects on the skin. This facial oil indeed delivers the promised – a rejuvenated and soften skin, which is very visible in the morning – a soft and rested skin. The Lyonsleaf Marshmellow Facial Oil consists of several deeply nourishing carrier oils, such as Baobab, Borago and Rosehip oil; these oils make this facial oil a perfect oil for a daily use for those with dry skin; for those,w ho have oily but dehydrated skin – this oil should be used as a night treatment, despite being a fast absorbing facial oil. The calming Calendula oil makes this facial oil great for any skin type. And the star of this facial oil is the Marshmellow extract, with its remarkable softening properties, among many others.
