Sometimes I live under a rock when it comes to certain beauty brands. How did this one pass me by? Are you a Masterchef fan? I am – and currently loving the latest series. And now I’m casting my mind back to 2014, and one of the contestants – Angela Langford.
Who knew she had a skincare line? Not me, but I do now. And I’ve been trying one of her latest products, the Bloom & Glow Radiance Restoring Face Oil. It was approved by the Good Housekeeping Institute in 2018, so I thought I’d give it a go, when it was kindly gifted to me by the PR.
I’m not a facial oil fan. I’ll put that out there right away. Last time I used a natural facial oil, I ended up with spots around my nose, and breakouts elsewhere. It was not fun.
This one is for restoring radiance to your skin, and is perfect for skin that has sensitivity, is easily inflamed or out of kilter. Mine is a wee bit out of sorts right now, and has sensitivity.
The first use of this went well – I didn’t have to follow with a moisturiser, and there were no breakouts. Result! It absorbed well, felt great, moisturised, and a few days in, still no nasties coming to the surface!
The key actives in this oil include natural vitamin E to repair and protect, Q10, a regenerating antioxidant that is present, but diminishes as we age, Evening primrose – good for moisture, Chia seed & rosehip – containing high levels of repairing omega 3 for those fine lines, and jojoba, chamomile and sea buckthorn are all in there for giving your skin that glow, repairing, calming, healing, and more.
Basically, it’s full of good things that are good for your skin. If you are a natural beauty product fan, and you haven’t discovered this line yet, then what are you waiting for? And, there are also some recipes from Angela on her site too!
