Brightening (really!) facial oil suitable for a range of skin types / 1 oz full size
We gave this heavenly-smelling oil a good, long try because we figured anything that says it’s “brightening” takes at least a few months to win you over. Uma’s Ultimate Brightening Facial Oil, however, proved us wrong.
We immediately fell for the fast-absorbing texture (thanks to its lightweight base of pomegranate oil, which is rich in antioxidants and nutrients like vitamins A, D, K, and E) and the bewitching scent (thanks to a heap of rose, neroli, and sandalwood essential oils). But in just two weeks, our hyperpigmentation-challenged tester noticed much brighter, more radiant skin — and actually felt more comfortable going makeup free. Which is always a good goal, isn’t it? We have Uma’s ultra-pure, potent, and expertly blended essential oils to thank for that. They’re the only skincare producer that owns every part of the production process for their essential oil based products, and the purity of this product really shows in its results.
We’re not the only ones who have gone wild over this one. Uma’s Ultimate Brightening Facial Oil has been named “The face oil that cleared up my skin” by Refinery29 and “one of the best skincare products for — and by — people of color” by Vogue.
