Kensington Apothecary Facial Oil #3 Pure Soothing | Review

Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

Given the veritable flood of beauty oils on the market, one of the greatest challenges for the uninitiated is finding one that best suits the needs of their skin. This particular challenge might even seem insurmountable for people with sensitive skin and very sensitive skin. For them, finding skincare products that neither exacerbate known sensitivities, nor introduce unknown offending ingredients, from the plethora of botanical actives that can overstimulate and irritate particularly sensitive skin, can present a very daunting challenge. The importance of the peace-of-mind associated with selecting a beauty oil that is formulated with the specific needs of sensitive, and reactive skin,  cannot be sufficiently underscored. 

Kensington Apothecary Facial Oil #3 Pure Soothing is, as the name suggests, a soothing face oil that is formulated to soothe, calm, heal, nourish and hydrate even the most sensitive skin types. Carefully selected anti-inflammatory ingredients such as Schisandra Fruit Extract, heals irritated and inflamed skin, while Avocado oil deeply nourishes and hydrates the skin. 

While my skin isn't always sensitive, it can be very reactive to certain ingredients, and when something triggers a reaction, I definitely seek refuge for my skin by using particularly gentle products that contain potent anti-inflammatory ingredients to mitigate the effects of the offending products and their particularly offending ingredients.

Kensington Apothecary Facial Oil #3 Pure Soothing leaves my skin soft, supple, nourished, hydrated, and with a pronounced luminosity. My skin benefits from this oil whether or not it is in a sensitive and reactive state, but when I experience skin irritation, this oil immediately soothes and calms it. Therefore, whether your skin is reactive to particular ingredients, or it is sensitive, in general, then this mighty little oil is absolutely worth having. 

Furthermore, this is a brilliant choice if you have been using aggressive facial peels and exfoliants that leave skin red, inflamed and traumatized. It's hard to believe that such an effective healing beauty oil is available at such a reasonable price! It should be noted that it has a light and pleasant earthy herbal scent that disappears after it is absorbed, and it won't likely cause an issue for people sensitive to aromatic face oils.
According to Kensington Apothecary,

Sensitive skin comes in all ages and subtypes. Schisandra Fruit Extract and Avocado Seed Oil give your skin the break it needs to heal itself.

Skin can be irritated for a number of reasons: lifestyle, genetics, allergies, irritants, stress. The key is to calm it down so it can begin to heal itself. Anti-inflammatory Schisandra quiets stressed, hyperactive skin while Avocado nourishes with vitamins A, D and E and a fatty acid complex that is close to our skin's own natural lipid profile. Take a deep breath, your skin will be okay.
Ingredients: Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil*, Persea Grattisima (Avocado) Seed Oil*, Vitis Vinefera (Grape) Seed Oil*, Curcurbita Pepo (Pumpkin) Seed Oil*, Camelia Japonica (Tsubaki) Oil, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Unsaponifiables, Schisandra Chinensis Fruit Extract, Citrus Aurantium Amara (Neroli) Flower Oil, Tocopherol. * Organic Ingredient.
Overall Assessment: This is a very effective beauty oil that is well worth having if you have sensitive skin, or if you do frequent exfoliation. Kensington Apothecary is a brand that most definitely needs to be on your radar. A+

    1. They actually make an oil specifically for breakout prone skin! There are definitely a lot of oils on the market, but there are also a good many that are made for acne-prone skin.

    1. Given your sensitive nose, this one might be a little too earthy for you at first, but the aroma does disappear once it has been absorbed.

    1. It's definitely a really lovely oil for sensitive skin! I don't blame you. Sensitive skin can be so reactive, and new products always feel risky. My skin isn't overly sensitive, per se, but it can be quite reactive to certain ingredients.
