"Itchy, flakey in patches, a bit dull and generally not very happy. Not an alluring description of how my skin tends to feel as we transition from the glory days of summer through to the (still sunny, but) chilly days of Autumn. The drier air, gusty winds, warm days and colder nights play havoc on my usually easy going skin.
I've tried all sorts in the search for the perfect solution to its woes, tackling it from an internal angle - beauty powders, probiotics, gallons of kombucha and kefir - as well as externally. Don't get me wrong, I usually love testing out the latest and greatest beauty innovations and launches - there are some incredible products out there, that in any other circumstances, my skin would love.
But, at this time of year, it's particularly fussy.
Enter les Huilette's my Sensitive oil, which launched this March. This rich, golden hued serum only has 7 ingredients in it, all of them plant derived, sustainable sourced and organic. Guilt free greatness that my skin has been lapping up. The blend somehow manages to be simultaneously super nourishing and rich, and very very easily absorbed and non-greasy.
The results are also beautiful; skin texture is smooth and soft, complexion is glowing. I can layer it under my sunscreen and make up, or use it straight up.
Made without any essential oils, the serum has an earthy, gently nutty smell that I find very soothing to use too. And it's also great for healing scratches and scars or treating stretch marks - one of the super powers of sea buckthorn oil, and the complete hand of omegas.
Love it, a true can't-live-without product."
