Gamila Secret Rose Face Oil – 50ml (£70.00)
With my face going through a seasonal adjustment during September and October. Summer over, broken capillaries ablaze thanks to fading sun tans and pale and pasty dry skin returning, this was an ideal opportunity to try out the Rose Face Oil from Gamila Secret.
Already a big fan of the range and having tried and reviewed the Original Face Oil from Gamila, I was excited to try this Rose version. Rose Essential Oil, in this case distilled from the Rose Damascus (Damask) plant, is renowned for it’s therapeutic properties. Rose oil contains more than 300 known compounds and is used as an antidepressant, antiphlogistic, antiseptic, antispasmodic, antiviral and even as an aphrodisiac.
The biggest ingredients in this face oil is Grape Seed oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Jojoba Seed Oil, Lavender Oil and Black Cumin Seed Oil. Then we find Olive Oil, Avocado Oil, Elecampane, a herb better known as Horse-heal. Bay leaf oil, Pistachio nut oil and Rose Damascena Oil.
A lot of face oils use olive and or nut oil as their base, then mix in a few other ingredients. The difference here is we find a large mix of several different types of skin benefitting oils and in larger quantities.
For your skin it soothes, moisturizes and hydrates and is good for all skin types, young or old, dry to oily. “Wait a second, Oil on oil? He must be mad!” Friends, don’t just take my word for it, do your own research. It is also used to calm broken capillaries, inflammation and skin redness.
All of the vegetable oils used are first pressed meaning they are the first extraction, and cold pressed so doesn’t used any heat in the extraction process, which can effect the properties of the oil. Being an oil, the liquid absorbs quickly and deeply into the skin and the active ingredients stay potent for longer compared to that found in creams.
Apply a few drops of this heady rose scented oil onto clean skin to leave it looking moisturised and hydrated. Use at night time allowing the ingredients to penetrate and wake to smoother, calmer skin. Can be used instead of, or in addition to a moisturiser cream. Less is most definitely more! A little goes a long way, one pump dispenses more than enough for the entire face. Fully Del Brown Approved!
