Here are two of your MOST frequently asked questions: how are your facial oil products different from each other and which one should I use?
Here's a guide to our Kiss Ready range, it covers what makes each product unique and who would benefit the most from using it regularly.
Kiss Ready Skin Light Chia Oil (Original)
My original formulation; it is light as air, an everyday no fuss facial oil, it is best worn during the day and it will take you through to night time, holding makeup in place like a good, dependable primer would. Not only will this oil help protect the skin barrier from the elements and everyday pollution, this will also provide a day-long glow to dry and dehydrated skin. Perfect all year round facial oil, thanks to its lightweight formulation.
Kiss Ready Baby Light Chia Oil
Only 100% plant oils, with no essential oils. Originally formulated for my then-newborn Lorenzo, I have used this versatile oil to add onto bath (my baby's and also mine's), it is also a silky and luxurious massage oil alternative and also great to apply on winter legs. Over the years, I have discovered other grown-ups love this too. This is perfect for those who have sensitivities to fragrances or prefer their skincare to be scent-free.
Kiss Ready Mama Light Chia Oil
I created this blend when I was a new mum. The thoughtful addition of Vitamin E, most known for its healing properties, is perfect for recovering new mums. This blend also contains Geranium Oil, which is said to assist in female health discomforts due to hormonal fluctuations like breast tenderness, cellulite and fluid retention. In the essential oils bible Essential Oil Safety by Robert Tisserand, Geranium Oil is identified as a low risk essential oil in regards skin sensitization. This oil would be helpful for minimising stretch marks and scarring.
Kiss Ready Skin Bright Cleansing Oil
A refreshing blend of herbaceous oils which are great for dissolving grime and makeup. This product is perfect for removing oil-heavy skincare products like cream foundations and makeup, and even sun care products. If using as second step in double-cleanse process, you may leave on the skin overnight. However, as with products containing Vitamin C, it is not recommended for day wear as it could cause photo-sensitivity (avoid sun exposure on application).
Kiss Ready Skin Midnight Moon Serum
Our limited edition serum that has quickly become a favourite staple. With gorgeous, deeply nourishing oils like Tamanu and Acai, it is no wonder that so many of you have fallen in love with this blend. The addition of Co Enzyme Q10 (Ubiquinone) more popularly known as COQ10, makes this blend truly one of a kind. COQ10 is an antioxidant that is usually found in cosmetics and skincare products formulated to minimise the effects of free radicals and to help maintain skin resiliency and radiance. Dry and mature skin would benefit the most from this oil.
As this is quite a rich product, this is best used at night. If you have dry skin, I suggest applying a layer of light moisturiser or cream (water-based) then apply Midnight Moon as the final layer.
If you have normal or combination skin, apply to skin after cleansing. There is no need to seal with a moisturiser, unless you live in a cold and dry climate environment.
