  • As a serum:

You can use it with a few drops under your day and night cream. Giving extra comfort to skin. In summer you may use it under (or mix it) with your aftersun.

  • All in one moisturizer:

It’s my go-to product for creating a head-to-toe seamless and smooth natural glow on the skin. A few drops mixed with your bodylotion or cream. One or two drops on your hands under your handcreme (or mix with it).

  • Foundation Booster:

Add a bit of the oil to your palm and mix with your foundation, for an extra nourished, glowy look.

  • Highlighter:

(Spritz it) on décolleté and face to add that extra glow. Use your fingertips to lightly tap the oil on the tops of cheekbones, leaving just enough behind for a subtle velvet sheen.

  • Curl Definer:

Yep, it works on hair too. Use the oil to keep your curly hair in shape.

Dry oils are rediscoverd, and vèry populair at the moment. And yes… maybe there are ‘better ones’, like La Mer and Estée Lauder, but they have a much higher price tag! And believe me… this one is more then perfect. A true, affordable Holy Grail! No wonder is is sold out…
