As the weather turns positively arctic, my dry skin cries out for more hydration! more protective layers! And what better way to seal in all that nice moisture than with a good facial oil.
I already have a few facial oils in my collection I like, but I sort of like having a variety of them depending on how I feel, like with cereal.
Eloquence is a bit of a wild card because I have never heard of them and I had no idea if their oil would be any good. At £29.99 it isn’t cheap BUT you do get 50ml which is a generous amount – most of my facial oils are around 15ml-30ml and prices vary from £10 to some eye watering £60.
So firstly let’s talk about the brand.
Eloquence is a UK beauty brand and focuses of natural ingredients (the list on this oil is pretty clean which I like) but also luxurious natural beauty. Their star ingredient is Sachi Inchi Oil which contains Omega 3, Omega 6 and Omega 9 to nourish the skin.
I adore the packaging but that is because I have a thing for green – I find this bright lime-green invigorating to look at and just generally cheerful. Strange thing to point out but some skincare is a bit…miserable.
Eloquence Treatment Oil contains Sacha Inca Inchi Oil which is uniquely rich in Omega 3 (helps to restore the skins elasticity), Omega 6 (helps to combat skin dehydration) & Omega 9 (helps against premature aging by intensely nourishing and protecting the skin from environmental stress). Skin, hair and nails are conditioned and revitalised due to the mixture of antioxidants, vitamins and essential fatty acids.
The top 5 oils in this are quite common ones; sunflower seed, coconut, sweet almond, rapeseed, olive fruit, THEN followed by the Sacha Inchi (also known as Plukenetia Volubilis), then a ton of other oils – I will take that as meaning that there is a decent amount of the star oil in this.
I like the somewhat light texture of this oil and the soothing rosemary-lemon like scent. I think it’s worth nothing this oil is multi use and it’s kind of fine to use on your body and nails, it’s ok to use on your scalp and hair as a treatment, it isn’t specifically just for the face.
I approached this is a general use oil all over and I loved it as a treatment for my itchy scalp. On my face it was fine too – light although it sat on my skin a little, so I would use it as a night time nourishing oil rather than a day time one. I actually think this would work quite well for people who find facial oils a little heavy or a burden on the skin. For example I have some super thick and rich facial oils that can make my sensitive skin react badly if it’s not having a great day – at times like that, this somewhat easy going and blander oil works well.
If you are interested in nice looking, clean natural skincare products, check out Eloquence (and of course you are supporting a UK business).
