Back from holiday I realised that my skin and hair feels dry and needs extra care after a few days in the sun.
In the last few months I have been testing a few facial oils, evaluating:
1. Is it 100 % organic?
2. Does it leave the skin greasy?
MERME – Facial Beauty Elixir
I have been using MERME for a few months now and I am very happy with the results. You can be sure that this product is 100 % cold pressed rosehip oil.
It has the certifications: Organic, Vegan and ECO Certified.
What I really like about this oil is that the oil itself is thick, but it does not leave the skin greasy.
Unfortunately the smell of the oil is not the most amazing, but this also proves it really is organic.
This oil contains vitamin A, which is great for anti-ageing, vitamin C, which helps to stimulate tissue growth and collagen production, vitamin E, which helps against skin dryness and Omega’s 3, 6 & 9 which help to nourish the skin.
At 32,00 € it is pricey, but this little bottle lasts for a long time and you are guaranteed to have a good quality oil.

Sukin – Organic Rosehip Oil
Another rosehip oil I have been testing is from the Australian brand, Sukin.
This product is also certified to be 100 % cold pressed organic rosehip oil. As a consequence the smell is not great either. The oil is very nutritious, but not greasy at all. It absorbs quickly into the skin.
It helps to sooth redness due to dry/itchy skin and reduces the signs of ageing.
It is better value than the above product at 12,94 €.

ArtNaturals – Vitamin C serum
I have been using this product for a few weeks. The vitamin C serum is very fast absorbing. It also has an anti-ageing effect and is also good to use after having been in the sun. The ingredients like aloe vera, jojoba oil and hyaluronic acid are very soothing for the skin.
Talking about the smell, it has a sweet gentle smell to it.
I could not find any certifications online, proving that the products are 100 % organic.
The 30ml bottle costs 11,15 €. Again this will last for a long time.

Facial oils are in my opinion a must have. They work for all skin types and you can use them throughout all seasons. Only two or three drops are enough to massage the oils into your skin. I usually use them before going to bed. Unfortunately the facial oils are pricey, but you also know that they are organic and a bottle lasts for a while.
