Nothing soothes, moisturizes and gives thirsty winter skin a hydrated glow like a face oil. What actually gives a moisturizer its moisturizing power is actually (surprise!) oils. The other ingredients are really just the backup stars, added to make the formula feel better (thicker, lighter, non-greasy, etc). So truly the ultimate way of giving your skin the most moisture possible is using a pure oil.
When shopping around for a seed oil-the oils that typically contain potent and natural anti-aging, repairing and firming qualities-you'll see they come in small bottles or itty bitty capsules. This is because they cost quite a bit to produce so a jumbo tub would then cost you even more. Just think about all of the work that goes into pressing oil out of a tiny little pomegranate seed and you'll appreciate the price. Another reason is that seed oils go bad faster than a typical oil base. (Side note: Did you know that Jojoba oil, which is actually a wax that stays liquid at room temperature, stays fresh for 30 years?) So it's the combination of potency and freshness that makes seed oils so wonderful to use on your skin.
I can't properly put into words how much I love Primavera's face oil capsules. They really are a one-of-a-kind and amazing product. Each capsule is twisted open to reveal a single fresh dose of skin-boosting oil. I use all three types, and I love them equally. But I tend to use one more than the others at any given time. Right now the Evening Primrose Capsules are in rotation the most. I rave about these to practically anyone who will listen and have converted so many people to them. I honestly can't imagine my skincare routine without them. If you don't believe me, ask for a sample. Trying them for yourself will make you a believer too.
Evening Primrose Face Oil Capsules
Like I said, these are my current faves. They have superior moisturizing oils including Evening Primrose and Avocado to help feed nutrients into your skin. Sure, they're 99% organic and they help nourish, smooth and regenerate skin. But what I really adore is how radiantly glowing and healthy-looking my face becomes afterwards.
Wild Rose Face Oil Capsules
What makes these oil capsules so special is that they work well on all skin types. Even oily skin can benefit from the anti-aging power and natural sun filters provided by the Rose Hip oil. It also helps seal in moisture while blocking excess oil and fighting blemishes. You might not think to put oil on oily skin, but trust me, this works.
Natural Balance Ultra-Rich Seed Oil Face Capsules
Okay so the name is a mouthful. But the product itself is truly brilliant. The most expensive of the three capsules (but far cheaper than a lot of the anti-aging stuff you'll find at the department store), this formula contains more than 60% pure, organic seed oils. What this really means is that it's one of the most potent, pure ways to give skin an immediate and powerful moisture boost. It also helps smooth away those annoying fine lines and wrinkles.
