The Nourishing Oil Your Skin has been Looking For

The seasons are changing, it’s getting dry and cold outside, and your skin is trying to adjust accordingly. Maybe the nippy weather is causing some flakiness, or dehydration is bringing out the oil. Don’t panic. Mary Kay Naturally Nourishing Oil has your back!

After just two uses, we observed a noticeable difference in the way our skin looks and feels. The blend of olive, sweet almond and sesame oils was designed to lock in moisture, which is a must during these frigid times. And the formula is made without silicone, alcohol or any synthetic fragrances, chemicals or dyes – gentle enough for even sensitive skin! 

But wait…isn’t “oil” what you’re supposed to be avoiding? Especially if you already have oily skin? 

Never fear! Even if your skin type is oily and acne-prone (like us), excess oil is usually your body trying to tell you it’s compensating for something. Using products with healthy, non-mineral oils is the key to keeping skin balanced, hydrated and soft.

Mary Kay’s nourishing oil is a refreshing way to give your skin a little love during the harsh winter months. It’s simple to apply and effortlessly absorbs into the skin for a little nighttime TLC. 

Other reviews for the product have noticed that a few drops of the oil can be added to exfoliating powders, moisturizers or even your hair as needed! Here at HCLUC, we have to agree that such a versatile and effective formula must be stanned. 

We worked the product into our nighttime skincare routines after toner and before face cream. To apply, just rub two or three drops between your palms and then onto your face. The oil has an addicting scent akin to warm vanilla that’s perfect for a pre-sleep routine. Afterward, your skin feels moisturized and ready for bed. It’s an easy step that only takes seconds and is well worth the benefits.

This winter, oil is no longer something to shy away from. Instead, embrace the movement toward healthier, happier and moisturized skin! If you want to try it out for yourself, you can purchase a bottle from Mary Kay for $48.
