Badger Damascus Rose Antioxidant Face Oil review

Dear Beauty Diary,
I'm going to share about one of my favourite products ever. Its the Badger Damascus Rose Antioxidant Face Oil! I love Badger and I love almost everything that comes from Badger. Badger manufactures 100% organic products, and those products that are not organic are 100% natural. I got this bottle for $27 (USD $21.59), which is I think is really affordable.

I realised that Badger hardly does any face products. They do more on body and aromatherapy. The only face products they have are lip balms and the Damascus Rose face range. I visited their website recently and found out that they have included some new face products, such as the Seabuckthorn (for combination skin) and Argan (for normal skin) face oil. Well, I have the Damascus Rose face oil with me, which is meant for mature skin. Not really meant for my skin type, but I got it when they haven't released the other face oils. This oil still does a really great job for me though!

Such pretty packaging!

Product description (click to enlarge)

This product contains 29.5ml worth of oil. It may seem pretty little compared to the 40-50ml sizes that oils from other brands come in. Let me tell you that this oil is plenty for your face. I have been using it for 4 months now and I am less than a third through the bottle. And can we give a shout out to the packaging? Its so pretty! The font is beautiful, the arrangement and layout is perfect, and the rose colour of the packaging mixed with the gold accents on the bottle makes it simply divine. Pretty packaging just makes me love products even more.

Ingredient List, you can see the USDA Certified Organic label on the packaging too! :) (click to enlarge)

Here's the ingredient list of the product. They are all natural ingredients, and have been organically grown and harvested. You can see the USDA Certified Organic label on the packaging. I love how simple yet effective this product is. Badger used a base oil, jojoba oil, and included skin beneficial concentrated essential oils like lavender, rose and chamomile. Jojoba oil is a very light oil that sinks into your skin very quickly, so its suitable for all skin types. Lavender, rose and chamomile essential oils are all very calming and soothing, perfect for those with sensitive skin.

Since jojoba oil is the base oil, this product sinks in really quickly, and you do not need to worry about it being too oily for you. Everything just simply sinks in! This oil provides lots of moisture for those with dry skin. Now don't fret, oily skin people, this oily works for you too. I used to have oily skin, but when I started using this face oil, my skin changed to normal. I'm really happy about this.

You don't need much product to cover your entire face. I only use half a pump on my face. I use it morning and night, and my skin feels so much smoother and softer. After applying this product, my skin actually sort of glows! Its a truly wonderful product.

Swatch of the beautiful golden oil

Recently, I started using this oil for my hair. In fact, I feel that this oil is better than many hair oils out there in the market. This oil sinks in and keeps my frizzy hair straight and calm for the rest of the day. And it doesn't feel heavy at all on my hair. It just sinks in and you won't even notice that the product is there after applying. My hair just smooths out and feels so light and tamed. Ahh, bliss.

This face oil has a very strong scent. Its all from the essential oils though, promise! No perfume has been added into this product, otherwise it can't and won't be USDA Certified Organic. The rose scent is the most prominent, but I can smell a hint of lavender in it. After applying to your face, the scent disappears, so it should be fine for those with sensitive noses. The scent is really nice though, so no issues. :)

Overall, I think that this face oil is bliss in a bottle. I love it! It sinks in immediately, moisturises so well, has made my skin glow and smells divine. I don't think I will ever stop using this face oil. Trust me, once you start using it, you won't be able to stop. The Badger Damascus Rose Antioxidant Face Oil is totally worth every cent!
