Dr Botanicals is a London based Vegan/Cruelty Free brand of Natural Skincare Products that was founded in 2016 .
Personally I much prefer facial oils as part of my skincare regime over cream based moisturisers for a number of reasons and I recently tried Dr Botanicals Moroccan Rose Superfood Facial Oil.
The fragrance of Dr Botanicals Moroccan Rose facial oil has the most beautiful scent of a skin care product I have ever used.
The consistency of the facial oil however is unlike any other facial oil I have used as it is very light and feels more like water than oil. This surprised me initially as it was not what I was expecting and I felt somewhat disappointed because I was concerned that the product was not going to be as hydrating as I’d hoped it would be.
I’ve been using the product now for 2 weeks and I love it and I can confirm that it does all that Dr Botanicals says it does, it feels nourishing and visibly brightens and evens out the skin tone.
The instructions say that you only need to apply 2-3 drops, I’ve easily triple this amount for a couple of reasons. Firstly it’s winter and my skin feels like it needs deeply moisturising to protect it from the harsh winter elements. Another reason why I like to use more than the recommended amount is because as part of my skincare routine I think it’s important to massage the face daily, if you don’t do this then 2-3 drops maybe an adequate amount for you.
One of the advantages of this facial oil being very light, it allows me to use in the morning without making my face greasy before I apply my make-up.
I use the product both in the morning and evening, despite easily using 7-9 drops per application I have only used a fraction of the bottle and I am expecting this bottle to last me between 2-3 months.
