Face oils are serums are something I am getting a lot more comfortable with these days; when I first started really getting into skincare, the thought of slathering oil on my face made me squirm. That and the fact that I had no idea how to apply it properly (I thought I was supposed to apply a 10p sized dollop of oil and massage in as though it was a moisturiser) meant my skin was pleading with me to stop with the serums. Fast forward a couple of years and I've finally worked out how they are supposed to be used. I've written a bit more about that here.
Kadria Skincare is a natural skincare range made in London by Sarah, an aromatherapist and massage therapist. Sarah has enjoyed dabbling in the art of aromatherapy over the years, and has spent time researching the real science behind the use of the essential oils, and after having her first child decided to take a course in massage, and subsequently formal study of aromatherapy. As an expectant mother, Sarah worried about what she was putting on her skin, unsure what damage the ingredients would be doing to her unborn baby. Whilst practising aromatherapy and massage, Sarah discovered that she had quite the talent for blending oils, which lead on to her developing a range of skincare which is safe, effective and beautiful. All products are 100% vegetable derived, and there is not testing on animals, which is a definite thumbs up from me.Balancing Face Oil with Chia and Blackseed* is said to nourish, restore, and protect uneven skin, whilst reducing inflammation and promoting natural healing. Blackseed oil is said to rejuvenate, whilst rose geranium and frankincense calms and relaxes. This oil smells delightful, and exactly as claimed, it really is a soothing and relaxing scent. The pump application dispenser certainly makes it easy to dispense the oil without mess, although it does apply a little too much for one application. I apply this sparingly to the tips of my fingers and then tap across my face until it is absorbed; fortunately the oil soaks into the skin remarkably quickly, and you're left with smooth, satisfied skin without that feeling of grease which often comes with serums or oils. This isn't something I apply every day, as my skin is fortunately fairly normal and doesn't need a lot of help to maintain it, so once or twice a week I apply this before bed, after cleansing. A very tiny amount of oil goes a long way, so I imagine this 30ml will last me quite some time.
