Green People // Age Defy Cell Enrich Facial Oil

As I creep towards my 30's I have been really thinking (with urgency) about adding an extra step to my routine. An anti aging step that is! Right on time the lovely guys at Green People asked if I wanted to review their Age Defy Cell Enrich Facial Oil.

This facial oil is priced at £29.95 for 30ml, paying thirty quid right off the bat is a lot of commitment. I'm being honest, if I were interested in this oil I would probably buy the trial size of 5ml for £10.99 first. But I'm a cauticious carol and would plump for the cheaper option first anyway.

So, the Age Defy Cell Enrich Facial Oil is jam packed full of ingredients, including Rosehip, Perilla and Blackcurrant. It is designed to promote cell regeneration (did you know that our skin starts to degenerate at around the age of 25, yeah not fair!) and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, whilst working to soothe and reduce any inflammation.

I have been giving this facial a good go since August and while I will say it is incrediablly nourishing, I do find that it takes absolutely ages to sink into my skin, perhaps due to it's runny consistency. So I experimented and mixed it with my facial moisturiser and still I felt it was too heavy. I dont like going to bed with a sticky/oily face, so having to make sure that I have put this on more than an hour before bed time, is sometimes a bit of hassle.

Normally I'm more of a serum girl, I find that they sink in easier and I'm lazy so that works better for me. What I'm thinking is perhaps I didn't need such a full on oil during summer, I will continue to use it throughout Autumn and Winter and see if my skin loves it more then.

I don't think this oil has caused any breakouts, although I don't use it everyday so I can't say it wouldn't if I had done. Once I awake from my slumber my skin does look more plumped and refreshed, maybe a little more oily in the morning than normal but never the less a bit more beautiful. Maybe that's thanks to the "20 beauty enhancing actives" that this Age Defy Oil holds. Who knows. All I know is that I will continue to use a night time oil/serum in my routine from now on!.

Have you got any suggestions on what i should be putting on my skincare wishlist?

  1. I love Green People's products! Strange that it doesn't sink in quickly, maybe try using slightly less? I love oils :) x
