I received a little 3ml sample bottle of Linden Leaves Miraculous Facial Oil as my Day 5 gift in the Beautiful Christmas 2016 Advent Calendar.
I was a little hesitant to use this facial oil at first, as I’d only used Rosehip Oil before and all Rosehip Oils seem to smell rather fishy to me and I really don’t like the smell. But, the smell of this facial oil was pleasantly surprising. It smelled quite nice.
The box said to use 1-2 drops, but I found that I had to use 3-4 drops from the tiny dropper to be able to spread the golden coloured oil sparingly across my face and down my neck. 1-2 drops only did half my face (forehead, nose and tops of cheeks) and my hands were completely dry by the time I reached my cheeks and chin and no amount of massaging moved the tiny bit of oil any lower down my face.
As I have naturally very oily skin, I chose to use this at night as a replacement for my usual night cream, and found that it left my skin feeling soft and smooth, with absolutely no oily residue. By the time I had put the drops in my palm and rubbed my hands together, the oil had practically disappeared. There was the smallest amount to be spread over my face.
I’m not sure how miraculous this oil is, as I haven’t seen a huge change in my skin, other than a few more breakouts than I usually have. I’m not using any new products, other than this oil, so I’m not sure what’s causing the breakouts. Maybe my skin just doesn’t like this product. I highly doubt that I would buy a full sized bottle, as it is expensive and I haven’t been overly wowed by it.
If you’re keen to try Linden Leaves Miraculous Facial Oil, see if you can get a sample from a stockist, or buy a smaller travel size before committing to a full sized bottle, just in case you don’t like it.
Linden Leaves Miraculous Facial Oil is available from Smith & Caughey’s, Ballantynes and selected pharmacies.
