Snowberry Soothing Facial Massage Oil - pics, swatches, review

Hello, Beautiful!

Over the summer I tried out the Snowberry Soothing Facial Massage Oil and thought I'd go ahead and make a review on it, because I think this is a great product now that we're moving into the fall and winter months. This massage oil does a great job at softening and hydrating skin, while its anti-inflammatory properties help to calm down any puffiness. Check out my full review below, including all the product info, after the pics!

Snowberry Soothing Facial Massage Oil Info & Review:
Cost/Availability: $32.00 (1 fl oz full size). Available on the Snowberry website, at Dermstore, at BeautyBar.com, and everywhere else Snowberry skincare products are sold.
My Rating: 4 out of 5 Kisses

Regular facial massage is a very important part of a good skin care and beauty regime. The Snowberry Soothing Facial Massage Oil is a superb blend of Azulene (the Chamomile extract that gives the oil its beautiful color), Inca Inchi, Passion Flower, and Rose Hip Oils that together provide anti-inflammatory properties as well as a rich complex of omega fatty acids and vitamin C.

Pomegranate oil extract is a powerful anti-oxidant and Bisabolol and Ginger Extract boosts the oil's anti-irritancy properties. Total refreshment for the skin! The oil is an ideal top-up natural moisturizer throughout the day and is especially suitable for dry and sensitive skin.

To use this, just gently massage the oil into the face and neck and if necessary, pat dry with a tissue.

This product has a light blue color and an earthy scent - which I actually didn't like. The scent is really just not a good match for my nose, but other people don't seem to mind it as much as I do.

The product, however, is very moisturizing. It absorbs easily onto the face too - sort of the way a serum absorbs, but it doesn't absorb so quickly that you don't have time to massage your face, which is the point of this product.

Even though this is really great for those with dry skin, I also feel its great for those with oily/acne prone skin too. I will say that over the summer my skin tends to be more oily, but now it's more combo normal/dry. In the summer I didn't use this all that often just because of how hydrating it is. If you do have oily skin I'd recommend using it as a nighttime treatment, and maybe using it just once or twice a week. Another good tip is if you have acne prone skin you could use this to help soothe and moisturize your dry patches - because sometime acne-healing products can dry out certain areas of your skin. The anti-inflammatory properties in this oil really help with acne that is inflamed, while softening your dry areas.

Now that my skin is more combo normal to dry I find that it's great to soften and hydrate my skin. I don't use this all the time; this is more of a treatment product for me rather than a daily use type product, only because the scent throws me off. But if you're looking for a different way to hydrate your skin, this is it!
