It’s been six months since I made my last purchase from my lovely Living Libations. So I decided to share with you my own complete view of one of my favorite natural and organic skincare products, Sandalwood Best Skin Ever oil!
Not only did I use it as a main part of my oil cleansing method, but I also had been using it systematically to moisturise my acne-prone skin (replacing any other cremes) and hydrate the lenghts of my damaged hair..
It worked amazingly in all three tasks!
The organic ingredients of BSE Sandalwood oil are: Simmondsia chinensis (Jojoba), Santalum album (Sandalwood) Nut Oil, Santalum album (Sandalwood), Boswellia carterii (Frankincense), Eriocephalus punctulatus (Cape Chamomile), Cymbopogan martini (Palmarosa), Thymus vulgaris linalool (Thyme linalool), Achillea millefolium (Yarrow), Anthemis nobilis (Roman Chamomile), Citrus limon (Lemon), and Citrus aurantium (Blood Orange).
First of all, last year I was under so much pressure and stress, that the overall health of my skin was affected. The skin on my face is very acne-prone and at that time, I could see cysts and a sebum overproduction all over it… I was feeling sad and I really did not want to take any pills again (I used to take roaccutane when I was 17 for 6 months and it was a terrible experience). So I was researching the Internet for quite a few months, tried really hard to be patient, just to find any pure, natural, organic skincare products, especially to treat the acne.
And I did! Discovering Living Libations products was like an apocalypse for me. So my very first product, was BSE Seabuckthorn oil, which I really enjoyed. I had been using it for 5-6 months (O.C.M. and moisturiser) and from the second week, I could see a huge improvement on my skin. No more cysts were being created, my sebum was so much more balanced and I was feeling self-confident again! I didn’t need much foundation to be nice outside and for the first time in my life I had an even skin tone… !!!
When my BSE Seabuckthorn oil was over, I decided to try another BSE oil, just because I was intuitively feeling that coconut oil is not the BEST thing for my skin (and BSE Seabuckthorn oil contains it, even thought it never seemed to actually bother me). Two years ago, I had been experimenting with virgin coconut oil and it broke out my skin so badly. So, when I checked all the BSE oils I discovered that the one without coconut oil was the… BSE Sandalwood oil!!!!
I find it much more moisturising than the BSE Seabuckthorn, even though the last one did a really decent work on my acne! But, BSE Sandalwood oil, turned out to be the all-in-one product that my skin (and hair) needed. Τhis specific oil has relieved me of too many different skincare and hair products and I am so grateful for this. Living Libations gave me the «tools» to make my everyday skincare routine so simple, so minimal.
Eventually, those 6 months that I had been using BSE Sandalwood oil, were the best 6 months for my skin. Briefly, I am so benefited from BSE Sandalwood oil, for the following reasons:
- It was an amazing cleansing oil, removing all the makeup and impurities.
- It evened my skin tone.
- It didn’t break me out.
- It didn’t clog my pores.
- It softened my scars.
- It softened my fine lines.
- It was so moisturising on my skin, that I stopped using any moisturising creme.
- It reduced my sebum, by balacing it.
- It was an ideal foundation base.
- I also used it as an oil mask or to moisturise the lengths of my hair, everytime I washed it and it prevented split ends.
- It gave absolute shine to my hair and helped me comb them.
Right now, I am on the process of re-ordering my second bottle of BSE Sandalwood oil. Finding something so healthy and beneficial to your skin, is always a good reason to be happy for!
If you live in Europe, you can order it from the site I do and that is Dutch Health Store.
