Strengthening, brightening, nourishing face oil for fall / .7 fl oz
de Mamiel’s Autumn Facial Oil is beautifully unique in so many ways. From a textural standpoint, it’s one of the silkiest “dry touch” face oils on our shelves, sinking into skin immediately to deeply nourish as though you’ve just applied a cream or a lotion.
And there’s so much more to this oil beyond that. As creator Annee de Mamiel explained to us, her seasonal face oils were created to address the shifting effects of the climate and the emotional and physical effect of seasonal transitions on the body. Every season, she crafts a blend using the principles of TCM to provide skin with just what it needs for the season: in the case of the Autumn Oil, hastening post-summer skin repair, clarifying and breaking up congestion, rebalancing moisture, and preparing the complexion for the winter ahead.
Check out our interview with Annee about the development process of this wonderful oil: she blends each batch herself, paying careful attention to the balance of ceramides, omegas, and sterols in the Autumn Face Oil formula to give it that perfect, silky texture that provides just enough nourishment, but not too much. Brightening ingredients like white ginger lily provide skin with clarity, reflecting its seasonal need to release and “blow out the cobwebs.” And a thoughtful touch of essential oils, sourced with the same attention that one might pay to wine varietals, not only provides additional brightening effects to the skin, but also encourages you to take a deep, restorative, transformative breath every time you apply it.
In addition to our interview with Annee about the development of the Autumn Facial Oil, be sure to read our bonus interview with her about how she uses it in clinic — and how you can bring that magical experience to your home with this bottle.
