There are a lot of different oils that have many purposes. This post is going to be about one of my favorite skin care products, which just happens to be an oil. I have oily/dry combination skin which is sensitive to a few ingredients, so I have to be extra careful of what oil I am using. My favorite oils are the Boscia Tsubaki Oil and the Oils of Life Intensely Rvitalizing Essence Lotion from the Body Shop. This might be confusing putting oil on oily skin, howver it is worked extremely well for me. A while ago, I read something online that putting oil on oily skin can actually help balance out oil production in the long run. Certain oils are moisturizing and can add extra hydration. I learned by reading online, that when oily skin is too dehydrated, the body actually produces more oil to compensate for the lack of hydration.  The thing that I love about the Tsubaki Oil, also known as pink oil because the bottle is pink, is how light it is and how well it absorbs into my skin. The tiniest bit goes a long way too. The Oils of Life Intensely Revitalizing Essence Lotion, is also really light and not heavy. The essence lotion is half oil and half water that mix together when the bottle is shaken. It helps prep my skin for my other skin care products, and also adds a bit of hydration as well. 
There are two other oils that I have tried, the Josie Maran Argan Oil and the Oils of Life Revitalizing oil from the Body Shop. I normally use the Argan Oil on the ends of my hair, and I knew that it had many uses. I had a reaction to it the second I put it on my face, therefore I knew I couldn’t use it. I still use it on my hair though. When I tried the Oils of Life Revitalizng Oil, it took a few days for the reaction to occur. The ingredient in it that caused a reaction was rosemary essential oil, and  it took a while to figure out this was causing my skin to breakout. 

It is important to try different products to figure out what best works for your needs. 

Review of the Boscia Super Cool De-Puffing Eye Balm

Normally I don’t do product reviews, however I am making an exception for this product.

As someone who has allergies, something that I am always dealing with is dark circles.  One thing that I hate about having dark circles all the time, is that even if I’m not tired, I still look like I’m tired.  It is really annoying.  A few years ago I went into Sephora to restock some of my skin care products, which the majority of them are from Boscia and I saw the Super Cool De-Puffing Eye Balm.  The really awesome thing about products from Boscia is that they have more natural ingredients and are all preservative free.  I had read about this eye balm online and thought it looked really unique and different.  I asked the sales associate exactly what it was, and she told me more about the product.  She also told me that it’s really good if you have allergies, and I decided to buy it.


The first time I used it, under my eyes instantly felt better, they didn’t feel as puffy and were instantly soothed.  The product does what it says that it is.  It has a really unique cooling effect when you put it on, and it definitely makes under my eyes less puffy.  It has a whole bunch of different plant extracts, such as licorice root and really good oils in it, such as rose oil.  After I put on my nighttime moisturizer, I use this and when I wake up in the morning my dark circles aren’t as dark, and under my eyes feel more refreshed.  The product lasts a really long time if you keep it out of the sun.  The first container I had lasted me a really long time, but it ended up melting.  The new container that I have just stays on my night table, so I don’t have to worry about it melting.
