I have heard great things about De Mamiel’s facial oils. I must admit I am a little bit skeptical when everyone is raving about some product, but I read the list of ingredients and I decided to go ahead with the purchase (i had a 15% off discount due to having purchased a book!). I love the Cleansing Balm so I decided to go ahead with the winter facial oil.
PERFORMANCE: the list of ingredients is great but something is missing. It is not moisturising enough and my skin looks very dull few hours after applying the oil. I think it is more suitable for people with normal skin and not for people with dry skin.
The skin is comfortable (it does not feel tight and it does not flake) but, notwithstanding the amazing ingredient list, something is missing and I am not going to repurchase this product.

SCENT: lovely, it is floral and very uplifting. It is aromatherapy at its best.
HOW TO USE IT: use 3 to 5 drops. They have to be “pushed” into the face and neck and not massaged in. I start with 3 drops and add an additional one
CONTENT AND PACKAGING:
20ml. The packaging is beautiful: sturdy carton box with a lovely ribbon. The oil is contained in a dark glass bottle with a dropper.

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