Face oils, in general, help retain skin’s moisture while protecting it from environmental damage. I personally love them because they provide a natural-looking glow all while helping my skin feel smoother, softer, and more resilient (especially when cold or drier climates disturb my skin). So, I was excited when I received the opportunity to try out two oils from Savor Beauty, a Korean – inspired skincare brand with skincare products free of parabens, formaldehyde, synthetic fragrances, phthalates, and sulfates.
SAVOR BEAUTY’S PUMPKIN SEED SERUM (BRIGHTENING BEAUTY OIL)
Their Brightening Beauty Oil claims to renew dull skin, fade dark spots, and help clear imperfections. I don’t know if it helped resolve any of my minor hyperpigmentation issues, but I have enjoyed how nourishing it’s been.
This oil contains rosehip, pumpkin, meadowfoam, sunflower, carrot oils, which are all non-fragrant plant oils great for repairing and rejuvenating the skin. This oil also contains comfrey leaf, which is a great anti-inflammatory.
SAVOR BEAUTY’S RASPBERRY SEED SERUM (LINE DIMINISHING OIL)
Their Line Diminishing Oil is my favorite of the two oils! It contains raspberry, cornflower, nettle, papaya, apricot and fennel oils, which are all great for repairing the skin, minimizing fine lines and wrinkles and aiding in the relief of itchy, scaly, irritated skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. Not only does this oil include comfrey leaf; but it also contains sage leaf, which helps reduce inflammation and helps regulate sebum production. Both irritation and oiliness can be concerns for me in the summer months.
I recently visited my dad, and he fell in love with this oil too…and he isn’t even into skincare!
I have been using these oils in my evening routine consistently for two months. I’ve also mixed the Line Diminishing Oil with my morning moisturizer since raspberry seed oil provides natural sun protection.
ROUND-UP & RANKING
WOULD I REPURCHASE?
I would repurchase the Line Diminishing Oil for my specific needs. Both are nice, but I found myself reaching for the Line Diminishing Oil more often.
I don’t really have wrinkles, but I find that locking in moisture helps my skin looking young and smooth. So, I definitely appreciate this as a preventative treatment.
WHO CAN USE IT?
Anyone who is not irritated by essential oils. Both products DO contain essential oils. Although the essential oils in these products haven’t been an irritant for me, I know they can be an irritant for some of us with either sensitive skin and/or eczema.
WHEN DO I USE THIS?
You can use these oils in your morning or evening routine. In warmer months, you’ll find me using my oils at night. But in colder months, I may mix them with my moisturizer in the morning AND use them to complete my evening routine.
$64 (1.0 oz.)
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE BRAND:
Savor Beauty is a clean skincare brand and Manhattan spa founded by Angela Jia Kim. A former classical pianist, Angela’s brand was built on the principle of making effective natural skincare as time-efficient as possible. Her natural, Korean-inspired products are designed to simplify K-beauty rituals for modern lifestyles using a number system.
I am interested in trying more of the line. But, I’d first like to get a treatment from Savor Beauty’s Spa so I can get a tailored list of recommended products for my skin.
