The Nature’s Facelift Oil from Santorini Sun takes a little getting used to, especially if you are used to a cream based moisturiser. The product contains 100% pure Olive Squalane Oil – which is the star ingredient and something that may require some explaining.
Squalane oil can come from a range of different places including plants and animals, but most importantly it is naturally created by our bodies. Sebum is our bodies oil and although it can be attributed to excessively oily skin, without it our skin would be dry and the effect of ageing would be significant. Squalane is a part of our sebum, so by including it in skincare it should ideally restore moisture and lost oils.
Because this product is so pure and something our skin is calling out for as we start to age (as early as our 20’s our Squalane production diminishes) there is very little chance of a negative reaction. Nature’s Facelift Oil contains no unnatural colours or preservatives.
You only need a small amount, remember it is an oil so the texture reflects that. If you are finding your skin is becoming dry and visibly ageing I would certainly suggest you use this product. It is always good to use preventative measures so as soon as you feel you are starting to need some extra help would be a good time to start.
The brand has a list of key benefits from the product:
- Ecco Certified formula, containing only natural Squalane Oil
- Reduces the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles
- Protects against the radiation of the sun
- Firms and tones
- Promotes cell renewal
- Helps heal scars and age spots
- Restores youthful glow
I have only had a chance to use this product twice so far but I do like the feeling of my skin afterwards – just be careful not to use too much. There is a definite hydration hit and I can see how it would be beneficial to many skin types. It is not limited to your face, you can use this on your body too if you wish.
