June’s product of the month is the Golden Elixir, and for a good reason. Not only does this versatile oil work for a multitude of skin types, it’s lightweight and easy to absorb formula makes it comfortable for the oil novice and oil aficionado. Today, we’re listing five reasons for why this should be your go-to choice if you’ve never used facial oils before!
1) The Golden Elixir is suitable for all skin types
Whether you are oily, dry, acne-prone, or all the above, the Golden Elixir’s formula will effectively hydrate and balance oil levels in the skin. This not only helps dehydrated skin, but it also reduces the inflammation that causes or worsens blemishes. The formula is both easy to absorb and super lightweight, which is perfect for the warmer summer months. Deep hydration without the oily feel is always the goal, and our Golden Elixir truly delivers! So oily gals, have no fear, this oil will work for you too!
2) The oil is multi-functional for the face, body, and hair
While most oils have multiple applications, the Golden Elixir is a true one-stop-shop. Whether in search of additional sheen or heat protectant for the hair or in need of hydration after the shower, this product can do both. Since the Elixir is so versatile, someone new to oils can play with the various ways oils can be a part of your beauty and skincare routine. We recommend the Golden Elixir for the body and cuticles, hair, and face. You can even mix in this beauty oil with other products like your foundation, body shimmer, facial powder, etc.! Since the full-size comes in a 4 fl. oz bottle, you’ll have tons of product with which to play around and experiment!
3) It is high in omega concentration
While many of our oils contain omega-3, 6, and 9 (all of which are vital for skincare health!), sacha inchi oil is especially concentrated (see why we love omegas for skincare here). The exact breakdown is about 48% omega-3, 37% omega 6, and 8% omega-9. Since these are essential fatty acids, our body can’t synthesize them. So it’s extra important to either consume omegas in our diet, or topically apply them to our skin!
4) The Golden Elixir Travel Roller helps with facial circulation and makes travel easy!
As discussed in our previous post about the benefits of facial massage, we discovered its ability to increase circulation, de-puff skin in the morning, and improve skin elasticity. Lucky for you, the Golden Elixir comes in a travel-friendly size that features a rollerball, which can help liven up your skin all day! We recommend placing your Golden Elixir in the fridge for extra cooling (and depuffing!) abilities. So when you’re on-the-go, or pampering yourself after a long day, the Golden Elixir’s rollerball is perfect for you.
5) It boasts tons of other benefits, too!
As if you needed another reason, we wanted to make it to the perfect five. Apart from sacha inchi, the star of the Golden Elixir, the formula contains other certified organic oils that bolster the skin’s health too! Sunflower oil protects the skin barrier, as well as improves the skin’s integrity. Geranium oil instead adds luminosity and can even lessen the appearance of discoloration. Finally, sweet orange oil has both anti-inflammatory and anti-septic properties, which heal and clear up blemished skin.
