Forest secrets iRejuvenate face oil and skin serum review

A few months ago, I was introduced to Forest secrets, a natural range of skincare that includes a facial serum and oil, which are designed to completely replace the traditional moisturizer:

The products are meant to be mix together for a personalised blend, and depending on how dry your skin is, you use a different ratio of the 2 products (step 1 is better for dry skin and step 2 better for normal/combination skin).

For my combination skin I like to use 2 drops of each, which I mix together before rubbing into my face. I then use another drop of the oil around my mouth and chin, which is the driest part of my face.

When applied to slightly damp skin, it's similar to a moisturizer and doesn't feel greasy, but it does leave me with a shiny face. With moisturizers, I usually wake up with an oily t-zone, but because these products don't contain any wax, all of it gets absorbed during the night, so I wake up with a naturally matte yet radiant complexion.

Since using this regime, I've noticed that my skin seems a lot more balanced - my t-zone doesn't get as oily and my cheeks aren't as prone to dryness.

At £37.50 each, they're not cheap, but a little goes a long way and it is packed full of natural ingredients. You can also get 2 3ml try me sets for £8, which is a good way of trying out the products without committing to a full 30ml bottle.

Do you like using oils as part of your skincare? What's your must have product for a glowing complexion?

  2. Pyxiee- Oops, I've just checked their website, and the prices have now gone up to £37.50!! It's a shame that they're so expensive as I'm sure a lot of people are put off by the high price tag! X

  7. LiisK - If you go onto their website (http://www.forestsecretsskincare.com/about/ingredients.html) you can see the full list of ingredients.

    It is possible to mix your own, but you'd have to buy a lot of different oils and find the perfect combination so its a lot easier (and probably cheaper) to just buy from the company x
