Dermalogica Phyto Replenish Oil: The Review

I'm a huge fan of facial oils, especially when used as part of my evening skincare routine. I love how supple and nourished my skin feels when I wake up the next morning. So naturally I was very excited when I discovered that Dermalogica had created a facial oil of their own. Let me introduce you to their Phyto Replenish Oil (£56.20).

This light-weight oil has been designed to strengthen and restore your skin’s natural protective barrier as well as smooth fine lines and lock in moisture. Made up of plant-based active ingredients, Dermalogica’s Phyto Replenish Oil can be used daily (morning or evening) to restore your skin's moisture levels and keep skin looking healthy.

Dermalgoica's Phyto Replenish Oil includes a whole host of active ingredients including...

  • Camellia japonica which is often called the “rose of winter” and derived from a small flowering tree native to Korea and Japan, this antioxidant oil helps strengthen the skin's barrier and provides wrinkle-reducing benefits such as stimulating collagen and inhibiting MMPs.
  • Tamanu oil which is extracted from the Ati tree native to the South Pacific Islands. The phytoactive's in this oil are potent antioxidants which inhibit the breakdown of lipid-rich cell membranes from free radicals.
  • Chia seed oil provides antioxidant protection and a concentrated delivery of fatty acids which helps hydrate while soothing dry, itchy skin.
  • Orchid flower extract repairs, protects and locks in moisture whilst helping to balance skin’s natural moisturising factor.
  • Hyaluronic acid hydrates whilst providing antioxidant and anti-irritant properties.
  • Sunflower seed oil a rich source of tocopherols (Vitamin E) which are yellow carotenoids, providing antioxidant properties which are key to preserving the skin’s protective barrier and defending against free radical damage.
  • Rice bran oil rich in Vitamins B and E, this extract moisturises, helps protect against UV rays and free radicals and aids in cellular circulation.

For the ultimate dewy complexion, I like to cleanse and tone my face as normal then press four to six drops of the Phyto Replenish Oil into my skin. If my skins feeling extra dry I like to mix a few drops of the oil with my moisturiser to give me that extra boost of hydration. Phyto Replenish Oil can also be mixed with an SPF making it the ideal travel companion. I would personally recommend Phyto Replenish Oil for normal-to-dry skin types.

At just over £56 this facial oil is on the pricier side but I strongly believe that you get what you pay for when it comes to facial skin care, plus Dermalogica is 100% cruelty-free! Phyto Replenish Oil has a warm herbal smell that I think would be appealing to both men and women. I also love that this doesn't leave any kind of residue behind on your face so it's ideal for mixing with a primer for the perfect makeup base. I've honestly become obsessed with this facial oil and I can notice a real difference in the texture of my skin since I've been using it.

Do you use a facial oil as part of your skin care routine?? xoxo
