Oilixia is a natural beauty brand that is inspired by the founder’s discovery of a variety of oils and extracts in her travels around the world. Their products are also made with natural ingredients, are cruelty-free and are vegan-friendly.
The Australian Kakadu Plum Gummy Facial Cleanser (£24) contains Kakadu Plum extract, which is a potent source of Vitamin C. It also contains macadamia and eucalyptus oils to nourish and cleanse the skin.
Since it has a gummy texture, it easily grips to the skin to remove dirt and makeup. It feels gentle on the skin and despite the texture, I was surprised as to how easy it was to rinse. It has a fresh and relaxing scent that leaves the skin feeling deeply cleansed and refreshed. As a matter of preference, I favor foaming cleansers more but I think those with dry skin would like how this cleanses the skin without stripping it.
The Explorer Blend Facial Oil (£43) has cacay oil to smooth and brighten, paracress plant to firm, tomato fruit extract to bright, protect, and even skin tone. It also has 18 naturally sourced oils like apricot, argan, camellia, rosehip, passion seed, and jojoba, to give skin a potent dose of vitamins, antioxidants, and omegas.
I was honestly expecting this to be heavy and tacky but this face oil is amazingly lightweight. It also gets easily absorbed in the skin and it doesn’t leave the skin tacky after application. This is my go-to oil for cheat days. I can always do the multi-step skincare routine every day due to exhaustion, stress, and just pure laziness. So this is what I use on days when I just can’t be bothered. I cleanse, sometimes mask, then slap this on and call it a night. I would still wake up and hydrated and moisturized skin afterward.
