It’s no secret that I love oils as skincare products. I’ve been using them non stop for the past few years – on my face, body and hair. They represent an essential step in my beauty routine, they give my skin that extra boost of radiance, while also working miracles on my hair. Therefore I’ve been constantly on the hunt for some new gems and I’ve found one I really wanted to share with you – Olival Magical Golden Dry Oil.
The magical combination of oils
This multipurpose magic dry oil with golden particles is a mixture of five natural oils and is enriched with vitamin E, which is an antioxidant that protect and repairs your skin. It neutralizes the oxidant effect of free radicals, that damage collagen and cause skin dryness and signs of aging. All the ingredients are carefully selected, the blend of hazelnut, macadamia, jojoba, rose and almond oil make my skin (and hair) soft and supple. It could probably work well for all skin types, because it’s non-comedogenic and doesn’t leave a greasy finish. The scent of the product is pure heaven; it’s warm, summery, nutty and floral at the same time. Considering the relatively low price compared to other similar products this one is a total bargain and a perfect gift for everyone (even yourself). And did I mention there are three ways to use it?
#1 use on body
Not only it optimizes your tan and makes it more glowy, it also smells amazing. I would say it’s the closes thing you’ll get to the Victoria’s Secret angels glow in one product (I know, one product doesn’t get you runway-ready, but at least it does the job of emphasizing my completion). It also optimizes the properties of a body cream or lotion – one spritz in the palm of the hand blended with some (preferably unscented) body moisturizer will nourish and even out your skin. It gives my complexion a shade darker colour and emphasizes my tan. I love using it on my legs (although they haven’t seen the sun since Bali), décolleté (works as a perfume as well) and arms (it’s perfect for dry elbows).
#2 use on face
Blending a drop of Olival Magical Golden Dry Oil in the palm of my hand and applying it where I usually apply bronzer (like drawing an imaginary number 3 on my face) and sometimes even on my lips. It’s a perfect beauty enhancer, making my skin dewy with discreet shimmer (not greasy or over glittery at all!), while nourishing it in the meantime.
#3 use on hair
Last but not least – using it as a hair treatment oil. I’ve been applying it onto the ends of my hair to make them look more soft, groomed and healthier. One pump in the palm of my hand is completely enough and due to it’s texture is relatively easy to apply evenly. It doesn’t make my hair look greasy, it gives it a nice silky texture while leaving a touch of shimmer and heavenly scent.
