When is the best time to apply the facial oil? Can I wear makeup over facial oil?
We recommend applying our facial oils after cleansing, morning and night. They are meant to take the place of a cream moisturizer and you should not need another moisturizer if you use the correct amount of facial oil. Your face does not need to be completely dry to apply facial oil, in fact, it is helpful and increases absorption and application if your face is slightly damp with water from rinsing your cleanser or floral water from toning. If you are layering skincare, oils should be applied after water based products to ensure absorption of both.
You can wear makeup over facial oil. Let your skin absorb the oils for a minute or so before applying makeup to allow the oil to be fully absorbed. If your skin feels oily after this, you are using too much facial oil. If your skin feels dry and you want more moisture, you are probably not using enough facial oil.
How much facial oil should I use?
Most people need 3–6 drops, using more at night and less in the morning. Please adjust accordingly to your skin’s individual needs and how active a treatment you are seeking.
Are your products gluten free?
Yes. All of our products are gluten free and do not come in any contact with gluten containing ingredients during production. One of our founders has Celiac so gluten free is in our core.
In what order should I use the products?
After cleansing your face we recommend that you first use the exfoliant, followed by the mask, and lastly the facial oil.
Do I need to use all the products to achieve results?
Using the complete ritual together will deliver maximum results however each product is effective on its own.
