Facial oils 'communicate' with our skin and oil production, which is one of the things that makes them so powerful.

We recommend this for
If you're looking for a facial oil but are prone to breakouts and/or congestion.
How use we it
Apply half of a pump of oil to palm, rub together, and pat into skin. You can also add a few drops of facial oil to your water-based moisturizer to turn two steps into one.
What to expect
Fewer breakouts and reduced inflammation from current breakouts. One of our skin therapists says that, "it smells like if a jalapeno and christmas tree had a baby."
I love to mix products. I mix this in with the Shaffali Volcanic Ash & Sage Earth Mask and leave it on congested areas like the nose. It softens up your pores immediately.

Bearberries contain arbutin, a skin brightener and lightener that acts similar to hydroquinone. It's a natural alternative to hydroquinone, which is a bleaching agent with a somewhat controversial past in skincare.
