Marie Veronique for Ayla - Dara's Oil



Lightweight yet deeply moisturizing oil with a beautifully silky texture

0.5 oz / 15 ml

Marie Veronique created this product specifically for our founder, Dara, who has super-sensitive skin. One might assume that a fragrance free, essential oil free, tocopherol free (and also, by the way, vegan, gluten free, and nut free) creation would be like the skincare equivalent of salt-free rice crackers, but no! This oil, thanks to Marie's formulation magic, happens to be the most beautifully balanced, hydrating but non-greasy, calming, and all-around excellent moisturizer that Dara and the rest of our team, all of whom have different skin types have ever used. So we decided to manufacture it in partnership with Marie Veronique to ensure that we could have an endless supply and you could enjoy it, too.

This lightweight oil has a beautifully emollient texture that absorbs quickly yet provides deep, long-lasting, and satisfying hydration. Thanks to its blend of light but nourishing oils, perfectly balanced omega fatty acids, and silky hyaluronic acid, Dara’s Oil leaves skin calm and glowing without an overly glossy sheen. Check out the details behind this powerhouse blend in the Ingredients tab below: you'll find all-stars like chia, prickly pear, and evening primrose alongside exotics like cherry kernel, which is one of the secrets behind its how-did-they-do-that texture.

Dara's Oil is packaged in a ½ oz bottle to ensure freshness, and best used within 6 months after opening due to its reliance on natural stabilizers. (Trust us, that won't be a problem.)

Another thing to love about it? Dara's Oil is suitable for all skin types. While it can be used on the most delicate complexions, it's an excellent way to give any skin a break from potential allergens and avoid sensitizing skin. If your skin tends to be oily and can't typically handle face oils, try mixing a drop or two of Dara's Oil with a moisture serum like Ideal Rebalancing Serum from TWELVE Beauty for a perfectly bespoke moisturizer. If your skin tends to be very dry, layer Dara's Oil over a moisture serum or under a moisturizing cream. And if like most skin it's somewhere in between, you can't go wrong by pairing it with TWELVE Beauty's Ideal Moisture Level Serum, which is a cult favorite for a reason.
