The concept of applying an oil to my face makes me think of drizzling some extra virgin over my face, blinking through the liquid and forcing a smile in the hope it will make me look petty. It’s a sorry sight. One in which we’d both feel sorry for me. However, I’ve been doing a little research whilst being obsessed with skincare recently and face oils are a thing, and since they’re a thing I thought I would dive deep into the world of skincare product reviews to decide which to try out. Sunday Riley oils kept getting mentioned and had a pretty impressive track record amongst Sephora’s reviewers (always go here for cosmetic reviews) so I went and bought a daytime oil “Artemis” and the cult favourite “Luna” in the hope that they would make my face so clear I could #NoFilter to no end, a face so soft babies would be jealous and a glow so radiant people would mistake me for JLo (the dream). Ooh also, a plus side of the facial oil is that it renders a face moisturiser useless and a hindrance so these oils are all I need. Here’s my little Sunday Riley review…
Sunday Riley Review
They’re everything. They’re thick to apply which weirded me out in the beginning (and put my olive oil fear to bed) but they are glorious to massage into your skin and they soak in very fast. Between them they’ve sorted out any little skin issues I had at the time – the chilly weather taking its toll on my face resulting in some dryness, blemishes here and there. Dare I say, I even look more alive than I usually do, and considering I’m getting less sleep than usual, I feel like this is a tremendous achievement. I will say this though, if your nose is easily offended by smells, these oils will take a little getting used to – Artemis smells like a herby dipping oil for bread they give you at Italian restaurants and Luna smells sort of medicinal. I don’t really care about this stuff as long as it works so go ahead, smell my herby face in the mornings, but how good does my skin look (it’s not that potent don’t worry)?
