Facial oils have a bad rep. Although it’s commonly believed that products with oil contribute to breakouts and bad skin, facial oil is actually good for your skin. Many conventional facial products strip our skin of all its oil, leaving our faces tight and dry and our skin working overtime to restore its natural balance—eventually leaving our faces extra oily. Applying an oil like jojoba oil or argan oil to your face can actually help balance your skin’s oil production, all while leaving you with soft, smooth radiance.
I’ve been a believer in facial oils ever since I switched out my nightly moisturizer for pure jojoba oil and found that my skin never looked better. So when I was first introduced to Badger’s Damascus Rose Antioxidant Face Oil, I had no hesitation about trying a new product. Badger’s Damascus Rose Antioxidant Face Oil is made with a combination of six oils: jojoba oil, baobab oil, pomegranate oil and essential oils of lavender, rose and chamomile, which can effectively moisturize dry skin and bring balance to combination skin types. The USDA-certified organic formula also contains extracts of rosehip, calendula and seabuckthorn, which provide a burst of antioxidants to help protect and restore skin.
The lightweight formula absorbs well. Even if I put it on right before bed, I don’t wake up to obvious oil stains on my pillowcase. Like other facial oils I’ve used, Badger’s Damascus Rose Antioxidant Face Oil helps restore balance to my skin and even tones down some of the red undertones in my skin caused by inflammation. Because I only use a few drops of the product each night (it helps if the skin is still partially moist from washing), I’ve found that the 1-ounce bottle stretches far. (I’ve been using it for a couple of months now and have used only a third of the bottle.) And at just $12 for a USDA-certified organic formula, it’s a steal of a deal.
