Q: What is Face Oil? Isn't oil bad for your skin?

A: When most people think of face oil, they think of the petroleum oils found in most skin care products. These are typically listed as mineral oil and found at or near the beginning of the list, where the quantity in the formula is greatest. These oils sit on the surface of the skin and can block pores, clogging them and causing a break out. Our Face Oil is formulated with only pure plant oils, which operate on a molecular level more closely to our own natural oils in our skin. This makes is easier to absorb and provide moisture not only to the top layer of skin, but also the lower layers of skin. Avocado oil, our cornerstone oil, is made purely from avocado, and contains many nutrients and emollients that are good for the skin. It absorbs deeply, which also helps to deliver the healing benefits of the essential oils that are blended with the avocado oil. Every oil in our formula is there for a reason, for the benefits it can provide for hydration of the skin and anti-aging.

Q: How do I use Face Oil?

A: Face Oil may be used morning and night, but most people start with using it as a night treatment. We, at M. Skincare Co., like to slather it on at night and let it do it's magic while we get our beauty sleep.

To use Face Oil properly, it needs to be warmed in the hands before applying to the skin. This thins the texture and makes it easier to massage into the skin. Place a few drops (or more) in the palm of your hand and rub your hands together. Cup your hands over your nose and inhale the aromatherapy benefits of the essential oils, then press into the skin on your face and neck. Continue pressing into the skin, and also use your fingertips to gently massage into your skin. It will completely absorb within a few minutes. For day, follow with sun block.

Q: Can I use Face Oil with other skin care products?

A: Yes! Face Oil can be layered with other skin care products. You can apply a thin layer after a serum and before cream. You can also add a couple of drops to your favorite cream when you need an extra boost of hydration, like in winter.

Q: What is the difference between the Face Oil and the Face Cream?

A: The Golden Face Oil and Golden Face Cream are complementary in the Golden Line. The Oil is pure oils, while the cream is a light lotion based with organic Shea Butter and infused with the same face oils, so that it contains the same benefits as the Face Oil. The Cream formula is lighter and absorbs quickly, but is very moisturizing. You may like to use it for daytime, and the oil for nighttime.
