I often get asked out of all the face oils out there which ones do I like the best. I’m not gonna lie, there are a few that I love, especially ones with Marula Oil, Rice Bran Oil, Prickly Pear Oil, Apricot Oil, Pomegranate Seed Oil etc., and I change according to the weather and what my skin needs at that particular moment. Sometimes I’d use a single oil (like Prickly Pear) and sometimes I’d use a blend.
One that I often reach for is @mariereynolds_london Elixir (available now at @ambrosia.skin in HK), as it’s light but moisturizing, absorbs beautifully, and sits beautifully under makeup. I also love the simple yet carefully thought out formula. Besides, the scent, a mix of rose geranium, frankincense and neroli (carefully handpicked by Marie as they give out frequencies that can tune in to the human body and thus are beneficial to the skin), is just heavenly.

🌺 My Thoughts 🌺
I love using two drops of the Elixir under half a pump of Reson8 (the two products form Marie’s Epidermal Blanket system), and they just make the skin feel sooo comfortable. Soothing & light, it nourishes & moisturizes plenty, but never feels greasy nor heavy. And the scent, well it just brightens up my mornings and helps me wind down at night 💚
