At this point, I've tried so many facial oils that I've grown quite indifferent to them. I mean, I love face oils, but tried one, tried them all. However, once again, Tatcha has turned something simple into something inspired.
Their new Camellia Beauty Oil is the best facial oil that I've ever used. I don't say that lightly so let me be clear with what I mean.
Does it have the lightest, most lovely scent out of any oil I've tried...yes, but that's not why I love it.
Does it absorb into my skin almost immediately leaving it plump without any greasiness...yes, but that's not why I love it.
Is the bottle exquisite and the gold flakes at the bottom just beyond...yes, but again...that's not why I love it.
I love it because it actually works! Have you ever noticed that facial oils do little more than moisturize...some may also heal scars or pimples on the face. However, if that's all you want out of a facial oil...then you ain't aiming high enough.
This oil: 1) hydrates, 2) plumps, 3) makes pores look more refined, 3) lightens pigmentation, 4) and makes my skin look fed!
Those are my words based off of personal experience...it's not even marketed to do all of that...but it does!
It's hard for me to get too excited about lip balm. I mean...it's lip balm. But, this ones pretty darn special. Once again, the glass packaging and gold leaf overlay are both exquisite and make you feel like a million bucks. The texture is rich and emollient– like Aquaphor but denser and without toxic ingredients like mineral oil– and it keeps my lips hydrated all night.
What can I say, it's hella beautiful and it works.
