I am a 40-something year old woman who has been passionate about beauty and skincare most of my life. I became interested in oils when my skin became hypersensitive in my late 20s, caused by the stress of seeing my father suffer with cancer.
I started experimenting with oils to see if they would help soothe and heal my skin, which it did and still does. Having searched high and low for a blend that would do all the things I wanted it to (soothe, strengthen, soften, brighten, moisturise, and still be suitable for sensitive skin), I started working on perfecting my own blend; a blend that will strengthen skin, keep it supple, retain its elasticity, and allow it to age with grace.
My passion led me to start a blog, and then the seed of an idea took root. And here we are now. My skin is still sensitive, and I find that I have fewer reactions to products now. A large part of that is due to me predominantly using oils, especially at night when the skin is allowed to breathe and heal. I have found night creams to be too heavy, leaving my skin congested. Oils have been my skin saviour. I hope they are for you too.
