Those of you that know me can tell everyone else how much I LOVE oils, oil based serums, and basically anything that replenishes and 'patches' the lipid (fat cells that are apart of our skin cells) layer in our skin. Which brings us to the second step/product from the eco-luxury, woman-created and owned (whoo hoo!) body line. Read more about the
Beneath Your Mask brand here.

Camellia Seed Oil- also known as Tea Seed Oil - high in Oleic acid (an Omega 9 EFA) and antioxidants
Pomegranate Seed Oil- high in Omega 5 fatty acids and sky high in antioxidants
That's just a sampling of the ingredient profile!
The deep amber coloration of the oil reflects the all of the plant-based anti-oxidants found in the formula. Just like eating colorful fruits and veggies, deep colored oils tend to be less processed and retain more of their vitamins and antioxidant properties.
The aroma was fabulous as well. This is a bit more flowery than their Polish: Detoxifying Body Scrub as it contains Ylang Ylang and Geranium Essential Oils but the effect was like walking through a garden. I love to think about how the carrier oils mentioned above are carrying all of these potent, healing essential oils right into my skin! Love it!
I applied this as soon as I got out of the shower, while the skin was still wet in order to seal in the moisture. My skin felt like velvet and after about 3 minutes, I didn't feel any oily residue, just soft smooth skin. Some people would stop here in their hydration/self-care ritual but not this esthetician!
