Aromatherapy Associates - Fine Line Face Oil

Just exquisite! If you invest in one thing for your skin, make it this!

Regular readers of my blog will know already that I'm a big fan of Aromatherapy Associates. It's one of the few brands I allow myself to indulge in occasionally, strictly on the basis that you only need a little -  this really is luxe that lasts!

This Fine Line Face Oil is quite honestly one of the most exquisite anti-ageing products I've ever had the pleasure of putting on my skin. It delivers almost instant results - I've been using it every evening for the past four nights and can already tell a huge difference in the texture, plumpness and youthfulness of my skin. Smoothing away the lines might take a little longer but I'm enjoying trying!

I'm always a little wary of oils and tend to use them only a night (for fear of looking like an oil slick!) but I've been experimenting with this one and because of its lovely light texture it's great under make-up during the day too. The recommendation is to apply it after serum and before moisturiser but I find it gives a healthy glow and moisturised skin when used alone too.

Massaging it into the face with fingertips before bed is sheer joy and makes for a peaceful night's sleep too. The aroma is a euphoric mix of indulgent rose, frankincense, ylang ylang and patchouli essential oils, combined with apple seed and raspberry seed oils (to help natural collagen) and evening primrose and wild African plum (packed with fatty acids). The result is glowing, radiant skin with the diminished appearance of fine lines.

Interestingly I've also found this product has helped to dislodge and loosen some annoying blocked pores I could feel just beneath the surface of the skin. I'm guessing this is because jojoba is the main ingredient which is known for its natural affinity with the skin and ability to regulate oil production.This combined with the daily massaging has brought them to the surface which is an added bonus! 

This is a truly stunning product and I wholeheartedly recommend!
