I met up with a very lovely beauty PR recently who had the most perfect skin. As she has a 16 year old son, I assumed she must be middle aged, but was too polite to ask. She said she hadn’t had surgery, so I asked what her favourite beauty secret was. “It’s all about oil for me, as I get older, I find my skins just loves it.”
I had been given some oil to try (not by her BTW), so decided to give it a go in an attempt to enulate her flawless, youthful, yet real complexion. So over the last couple of weeks, I have been religiously applying ila rose oil in the morning and Kiels Midnight recovery at night. I had to persevere with the rose oil as I hate the smell of roses and it was quite overwhelming at first, but it becomes less overpowering the more you use it.
The great thing about using oil, is that you only need a tiny bit, so they may be expensive (the rose oil is £58) but they do last a long time. Both are made from natural ingredients and the Midnight recovery Oil contains lavender, therefore is lovely and relaxing before bedtime. I have been using it in conjunction with the Kiels Midnight Recovery eye cream, which also contains lavender and evening primrose oil.
Ok so I don’t look as young as Madonna and when teen daughter and I visited a nail bar recently, the (clearly visually impaired) nail technician asked if she was my grand daughter. But my skin looks healthier and smoother and I love the relaxing lavender in the Midnight Recovery oil.
Miracles are so over rated – don’t you think?
