I've been testing out PLANT's OA Face Oil* (30ml - £26.95). PLANT makes apothecary and gourmet goods with a conscience. From a Brooklyn based design studio with an online shop and wholesale distribution PLANT was founded by Holly McWhorter and Bjarke Ballisager, a husband and wife team.

I have already tried and loved the gorgeous CALM DOWN body wash* (review) so I was really excited to try one of the new facial oils now available at a beautiful world.

The face oil I've been testing is suitable for Normal & Combination skin types (there is also ones available for dry and oily skins). See more details here.

Holly and Bjarke design and formulate all products either together or independently and they both have a passion for the environment, natural beauty and grooming.  I love that the products are made with the help of adults with physical and mental disabilities which in turn gives them access to training and paid work.

In Danish, “Ø” means island (dry) and an “Å” is a creek (wet) which symbolizes an oil that combines lightweight and rich moisturizers for both normal and combination dry/oily skin.

One of the things that first jumped out at me was the oil contains Sea Buckthorn which is one of my favourite oils. I also love the simple but stylish packaging. The facial oil is really lovely to use and leaves the skin nourished and looking radiant. The blend for Normal/Combination skins contains Rosmary, Sweet Orange and Ginger along with Sweet Almond, Macadamia Nut, Grapeseed, Jojoba, Sea Buckthorn, Pomegranate Seed Oils along with Vitamin E.

To use: rub 4 drops in the palms before massaging into face and neck. My thoughts? An absolutely fantastic oil which absorbs instantly, smells fantastic (with a ginger kick) and leaves my skin nourished and rejuvenated.

Have you tried this or one of the other facial oils?
