A sample size of Oasis On The Rocks Serum was also in the Goodie Bag that I ordered from Oasis. After having such a great reaction to Oasis Straight Up Serum, I was keen to try this soothing serum.
I’d been on holiday for two weeks by the time I began using this and my skin was feeling a little dehydrated and stressed after being exposed to sun and wind for hours on a daily basis.
This serum contains Lavender and Chamomile to soothe, while Sweet Almond Oil, Rosehip and Jojoba moisturise the skin; Vitamins A, C & E to improve skin cell turnover, fight free radicals, heal and repair skin damage; and Rose to help treat dryness while also providing a very subtle scent.
Even thought it’s an oil, it is non-greasy and is absorbed quickly into the skin. I found that 4 drops from the little sample bottle was sufficient to do both my face and neck and the subtle rose fragrance is barely even there and not very noticeable, so it won’t leave you with an overpowering scent!
As with the Straight Up Serum, I only applied the serum at night and did this by placing 4 drops into the palm of one hand before gently rubbing my hands together before patting the oil over my face and neck. I gently massaged the warmed oil into my face and neck until all of it was absorbed and my skin felt soft, relaxed and hydrated. I chose not to apply a moisturiser on top as the serum was sufficient for my oily skin, but I did apply an eye cream. If you have dry or combination skin, a night cream or moisturiser can be applied on top.
Be careful if you use an oil-based serum in the morning, as applying an oil to your face can promote sun damage. If you do choose to use it in the morning, make sure to apply a good quality sunscreen on top.
If you feel oily after applying the serum, you’re probably using too much. Blot lightly with a tissue to remove any excess and try using less the next time you apply it.
They’re both really good serums but personally, I preferred Straight Up Serum to On The Rocks. Straight Up just suited my skin type so much better, it felt better on my skin and I prefer the smell of Jasmine to Rose.
