Facial oils are products I have integrated to my daily skin care routine as a way to nourish my skin and seal the routine to avoid transepidermal water loss, how days the formulas developed allow any skin type to be able to use them and this time I tried a facial oil from the brand Olverum, I never really tried the brand before but I knew they have a good focus on spa and well being.
Suitable for all skin types, Olverum Facial Oil is a combination of sustainably sourced essential oils and botanical extracts features Bakuchiol, the first natural retinol alternative, to firm, plump and balance the tone of skin without causing irritation. This works synergistically with Rosehip and Cacay Oils to maximise its effects while preventing the dry, harsh breakouts traditional retinol products can cause. Meanwhile powerful CBD alternative Patchouli Extract, a phytocannabidol which activates dermal CBD-2 receptors, helps to calm habitually held expressions, which can emphasise the perception of ageing.
Nourishment comes from a unique F, A, C, E Vitamin formulation, to help boost collagen production and cell renewal, and brighten tired-looking skin. Olverum have tirelessly sourced a superior, naturally derived oil-soluble Vitamin C, which penetrates into the skin to deliver more effective benefits and enhance the efficacy of the other vitamins.

So far my experience with this facial oil was pretty good, I do have combination skin that easily break out if any ingredient is occlusive or harsh but at the same time i want to keep my skin nourished and avoid water loss in my skin. The way I use all facial oils is after cleansing, toner, serums and moisturiser I add few drops in your hand rub to be able to warm it up and start to apply with circular massages around your face, with this we not only stimulate the lymph and circulation, but the oil has a sealing effect that would avoid that our skin lose water.
I noticed a nice improvement on mi skin texture, is not oily but neither dry, is like it helps to keep the balance on moisture, what I love the most is when I wake up the next morning and I notice the natural glow when I see myself in the mirror, it made my skin look refresh even when some days I don’t sleep the right amount of hours I should.
