A couple of weeks ago I reviewed some cleansers from Blü Fern, an all natural clean beauty company. Today I am going to review their Botanical Facial Oil. I really liked the cleansers. One was a Nourishing Oil Cleanser and the other a Hydrating Milk Cleanser. I used them as part of a double cleansing ritual and found them to be more than adequate for my dry skin. Read on below for my review of their Botanical Facial Oil. 

Blü Fern was born of the idea that beauty isn't something you make, it is something that exists already inside of you & around you. With this idea in mind,  the creators of Blü Fern made a line of products that use the beauty found in nature to enhance the beauty you already possess. Good 'clean' beauty that lets your inner light shine through. Their products heal, calm, hydrate, protect and balance the skin with minimal ingredients and no fillers. It is about nourishing, renewing and caring for the whole self. They believe that everyone has an ability to make a real impact on our world, simply by participating in their lives. Based in Austin, TX, a city that is welcoming, vibrant and full of life. Blü Fern mingles and grows, invests in the trails, trees and the spirit of the community. They partner with a few organizations in an effort to keep the city and environment flourishing. These organizations are: 
You may think that you cannot use a facial oil but facial oils are great for just about any skin type. The Botanical Facial Oil is a good fit for dry, normal or sensitive skin. It can be used on its own or applied after using their Nourishing Oil Cleanser and/or Hydrating Milk Cleanser. This oil contains nourishing Grapeseed oil, Pumpkin Seed oil and Seaweed to boost cell regeneration, hydrate, detoxify and promote skin elasticity. Handcrafted in small batches, this plant-based facial oil has been lovingly in Austin, TX. It doesn't contain any synthetic chemicals, parabens, toxins, fillers, artificial fragrances and did not undergo any animal testing. 

Blü Fern Botanical Facial Oil will moisturize, protect and repair your skin with the natural benefits of the following ingredients:
  • Camellia oil: high in Omega 6 fatty acids, it soothes inflammation while hydrating the skin
  • Rosehip oil: has anti-bacterial properties and heals, moisturizes & brightens the skin
  • Bilberry Seed oil: contains Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids to soothe irritated skin and promote elasticity & skin suppleness 
  • Plankton Extract: nourishing & reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Algae Extract: detoxifies and hydrates the skin
  • Pumpkin Seed oil: high in Omega 3 fatty acids, Vitamin E and Zinc, it detoxifies, hydrates and promotes cell regeneration
  • Grapeseed oil: fades scars and moisturizes the skin
  • Tsubaki oil: a dry oil that is high in oleic acid (Omega 9 fatty acid), polyphenols, Vitamins A, C, D & E. It is known for its skin conditioning properties
  • Yeast Extract Ferment Filtrate: is a probiotic that helps to support the skin's microbiome
  • Tocopherol (Vitamin E): a widely know antioxidant, kills free radicals and helps to soothe and nourish the skin, as well as heal scars
To use: use daily after cleansing skin. Can be used morning and evening. Place a few drops on hands and gently massage onto dry skin. If used in the morning, make sure to follow with a SPF30.   

I have used a number of facial oils in my time and I find this one to be very nice. Just a few drops are needed for the entire face, neck and decolletage. It is lightweight yet moisturizing and nourishing for the skin. My skin is very dry and soaks up the oil almost immediately without leaving any sort of greasy feeling on the skin. Because it is all natural and does not have any fragrance or essential oils to it, I would recommend this for sensitive skin. The oil leaves skin feeling soft, moisturized, hydrated and supple. Use after cleansing and after any essences or water based serums. This oil is a little heavy for those with oily skin and definitely not those with acneic skin. I would only recommend it for those with combination skin during the winter months if your skin gets drier and leans toward more normal or use on the drier parts, not in the T-Zone. However, it isn't likely to cause acne or be comedogenic. Although, any of these oils could theoretically break you out if you are prone to breakouts. As I mentioned, this would work well for sensitive skin, since the oils in this are natural, lightweight and have anti-inflammatory properties. The probiotic in this is also good for sensitive skin too. All in all, this is a great facial oil and one of the best ones I have every used.
