Caudalie Divine Oil

Caudalie Divine OilI have recently received this little miracle in a Glossy Box (one of these beauty subscriptions that are so popular at the moment) and I have to say, this is one of the best things I have ever tried. I have combination oily skin so I would never normally reach for an oil. Anything to rich and oily makes me look like I have primed my makeup with a stick of butter. While my skin is really oily it is also quite dehydrated and prone to dry patches, so I do need a very good, effective moisturiser.

According to the brand the Divine Oil  is a nourishing multi-purpose miracle oil, (...) an indulgent treat for dry skin, hair and nails. The unique blend of natural oils, gentle fragrances and softening shea butter can also be used to restore the skin in the bath or during a massage. It is also a dry oil, so it won't make you look overly greasy. I wouldn't recommend it as a base for makeup (maybe unless you have extremely dry skin...?) but used at night or on a weekend morning after exfoliating it feels amazing and gives you a soft, plump looking skin with NO dry patches or excess oil. It sinks into the skin very quickly, doesn't feel heavy and leaves your skin quite refreshed.

The smell is lovely but a little bit strong for a face product. It does evaporate pretty much completely after a couple of minutes though so unless you are very sensitive to fragrance it shouldn't be a problem. The Divine Oil can also be used on the ends of your hair and as a body moisturiser.

I can't stress enough how much of a revelation this product is for me and I would definitely recommend it!

I have already purchased the full size and will keep the dainty sample from Glossy Box in my handbag. At £28.15 (from lookfantastic.com) it is quite pricey but you only need the tiniest bit if you are using it mainly on your face.

Do you have a favourite face oil?
