I get so many emails requesting recommendations for luxurious, yet budget friendly, beauty oils, and I am always thrilled to be able to feature such great finds.
My most recent budget-friendly luxurious beauty oil is Mad Hippie Antioxidant Facial Oil, and as the name suggests– this is a antioxidant-rich anti-aging oil, and it is deeply moisturizing and nourishing. It has a lightweight texture that is remarkably fast-absorbing, and when applied to warm slightly damp skin it absorbs immediately. It leaves behind no oily residue, and it imparts a gorgeous healthy glow. In addition to healthy luminous skin, one notices that fine lines are plumped, skin is beautifully hydrated, and over time photo damage is diminished.
In addition to an enviable list of natural active ingredients, Mad Hippie Antioxidant Facial Oil has the delectable smell that might be described an unassuming citrus that isn't in the least bit overpowering.
I can use this luxurious beauty oil day or night, or both, and my normal/combination skin feels soft, smooth, supple and luminous whenever I use it. I also love to add a drop or two to my foundations, tinted moisturizers and BB and CC creams for a dewy luminous finish.
