Look, I’m going
Admittedly, the idea of putting *oil* on my face was a bit foreign to me. While this is certainly not a new trend, I didn’t really think to try it. Given my super dry skin, I’m not sure WHY I didn’t didn’t think to try it, but nevertheless, I didn’t. I received a set of samples from a skincare company, one of which was a delightful little bottle of face oil (I’ll blog about that one another time) and oh my…I loved it! So I did what any reasonable person would do and started obsessively googling face oils and who was the best and what did everyone use and I kept seeing one in particular pop up, Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil. And I looked at that $105 price tag and kept on googling. But I was so curious! It was blue for heaven’s sake! How cool is that?!?!? But I still didn’t bite.
And then…it arrived. I opened up my P.O. Box and found the Box of Style winter edition and behold, there was Luna! The intriguing, freaking expensive, blue face oil! Full size even!
I was afraid to try it. What if I liked it?
I was correct to be afraid. Because damn…I like it. I love it.
Luna is a retinol oil and it reduces the appearance of redness, pores, fine lines while making skin looks moister and plumper. Basically, it’s a good night’s sleep and mild facelift in a bottle. I’m not struggling to hold on to my youth, don’t get me wrong. I just want to look and feel good in my skin, and I look better in the mornings now. My skin tone is more even, it’s awesome. I never really understood what “plumper looking skin” meant”, but I see it now. I look more rested, less tired, my skin isn’t as dry. I’m not even using as much moisturizer overall (although I still slather on my SPF one in the morning, because the sun ain’t my friend,
Bottom line, I have become a face oil person. I have become a fancy, expensive face oil person. And there’s no way I’m going back, stingy ways be damned. Worth it? YES.
