Brightening, balancing, vitality-boosting face oil for spring / .7 fl oz
de Mamiel’s Spring Facial oil is just what so many complexions need as skin calls for products that bring it back into balance in a warmer, slightly more humid environment after a long, cold winter.
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 Spring Oil, balancing skin and clearing the way for skin that radiates with vitality.
This brightening blend of potent plant oils first helps detoxify and stabilize the complexion after the cold, dry winter. Jojoba, rosehip, and milk thistle nourish and bring stability back to skin that feels a little confused after dealing with the previous season’s temperature extremes; baobab, sunflower, and elderberry seed oils also aid in restoring balance and equilibrium. Luffa and dandelion flower essences help the body and mind release the stagnation of the past months; clary sage, lavender, and rosemary then support skin with the shift in seasons, paving the way for juniper, geranium, and grapefruit to kick-start cellular energy and awaken the skin for renewed luminosity.
Annee writes, "Spring is the season of the wood element in Chinese medicine, representing new life and growth. It’s the perfect time to cleanse and decongest skin. I’ve hand blended the Spring Seasonal Facial Oil using the finest ingredients known for their age-defying, antioxidant, balancing and brightening qualities, so your complexion radiates new vitality and clarity."
