Skincare Wishlist Part 1: FACE OILS

In my skincare routine, i usually use face oils at night. Face oil blend will be used straight after water based serum — the face oil is considered as a second serum, as a moisturiser, and also as a hydration sealer. As for single ingredient face oil, i always use it last, whether after moisturiser or mixed with moisturiser. Here are my face oils wishlist:

Sonia Kashuk Radiant Boost Restorative Face Oil  

PRICE: US$ 15.99

WHAT IS IT:

Introducing Sonia’s first face oil, a luxurious formula that multi-tasks to moisturize, repair and protect skin, resulting in a beautiful, natural glow. Rich in antioxidants, fatty acids and botanical extracts, this restorative face oil will instantly hydrate and nourish the skin, while delivering a dewy, youthful look. The anti-aging formula contains a blend of 9 oils including Sweet Almond Oil to soften, Bergamot Essential Oil to purify, BerryFlux Vita to boost skins moisture, Sesame Seed Oil to condition, Evening Primrose Seed Oil to nourish and regenerate, and Black Currant Seed Oil to soothe the skin. Stabilized Retinol protects against photo-aging and reduces lines and wrinkles over time while Para Cress Flower Extract works to improve skins density and firmness and Vitamin E delivers antioxidant properties. Housed in a sleek glass vial and dropper with a delicate scent.

WHY I WANT IT:
I like the packaging, it has retinol, reviews said (and Sonia Kashuk herself in an interview) that this dace oil smells divine, and the base oil is sweet almond oil.
