I like RMS Beauty makeup but unfortunately, due to the high level of coconut oil, they break me out like crazy and I cannot use them. such a shame as I believe that the un-cover up and the living luminizer are amazing products.
RMS re-launched its oil last year and luckily it is not a blob of coconut like the rest of the line. So I decided to try a sample to see how it feels and if it works. This is a first impression post as I had the chance to use the oil for about 1 week.
PERFORMANCE: I tried the product for a about a week so this is a first impression review. Unfortunately I was not impressed as the oil is not moistutising enough for my dry skin. I applied a few drops on the face and then I applied also a moisturiser (I am finishing off a sample of the Blue Cocoon by Ma Lindstrom). By midday my skin stared to sting and was crying for moisturisation. I tried also by itself but in Milan in January it is not an option.
Tis is more suitable for normal to combination skins or if you live in a warmish climate. For dry skin in winter it is not “strong enough”
INGREDIENTS: *Golden Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, *Rosa Mosqueta (Rosehip) Seed Oil, Herbs Infused in *Golden Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil: *Hypericum Perforatum (St. John’s Wort), *Equisetum Arvense (Horsetail), *Calendula Officinalis (Marigold), *Hemidesmus Indicus (Country Sarsaparilla), *Curcuma Longa (Turmeric), *Withania Somnifara (Ashwagandha),*Glycyrrhiza Glabia (Licorice), *Olea Europaea (Olive Leaf), **Mauritia Flexuosa (Buriti) Fruit Oil, *Calophyllum Inophyllum (Tamanu) Seed Oil, Tocopherol (non-GMO), *Vanilla Planifolia (Vanilla) Extract * CERTIFIED ORGANIC **WILDCRAFTED
SCENT: very prominent and earthy. I find it quite annoying and very persistent at first. Luckily it dissipates after about 15/20 minutes.
HOW TO USE IT: it can be used in the morning before the moisturiser and/or at might. A little goes a long way: 2 drops for the face and 1 drop for the neck. Massage it into the skin after having washed it (you can use a mist and apply the oil when the mist is still wet on your face).
the oil is bright yellow due to the turmeric, which is a powerful anti-inflammatory. When blended into the skin it is completely transparent.
It is moisturising and it disappears into the skin after a few minutes.
CONTENT AND PACKAGING
30ml. The oil is contained in a clear glass bottle with a dropper. The vase is contained in a carton box.

I purchased the sample with my money. It was NOT sent by PR and I did not receive any money to post this review.
