A few weeks ago Healing Earth sent me some of their products to try, amongst them was the Marula and Rose Hydrating Face Serum. I’ve been looking for an oil to layer over my serum and under my moisturiser so I jumped on trying it. My skin isn’t in a bad place, but I am still on Roaccutane so I’m enjoying the extra hydration I can add without much greasiness. I’ve actually been able to wear this serum during the day under makeup and it works well if I apply a small amount.
A big change I’ve made that has helped with pilling is patting rather than rubbing on skincare, it’s tedious but it’s better for your skin when you don’t tug and pull on it. I’ve got a bumper skincare routine post coming soon because I realise that not everyone has a 9-11 step routine like I do. I’ve taken so many cues from Asian skincare and the long skincare routine is one of them. So I’ve been using the Marula and Rose Hydrating Face Serum as my oil which I apply both in the mornings and the evenings. I find that if I don’t hydrate enough, my skin ends up looking pretty oily by the end of the day.
I really like this serum, but it’s probably a little too heavy for day-time use for some of you. Why am I saying this? I’m giving away a Healing Earth hamper soon so get ready for that! The hamper includes this serum, and three other products (all full-size) that I love. So keep an eye out for that.
