By now if you are a long time reader of this blog you will probably be well aware of my obsession with beauty oils. And much to my delight there is an exciting newcomer to add to the mix. Made from the fruit of the Marula tree (which is native to Africa), Marula oil is, quite literally, transforming the world of beauty oils.maurla

From foundation to nail polish Marula oil is currently popping up everywhere I look, but today it is all about one very special, award-winning product that has completely and utterly stolen my heart. So without further ado, I would like to introduce you all to Marula’s Pure Marula Facial Oil.

Harvested in a Fair Trade partnership with rural African women this light, yet powerful Marula facial oil is packed full of so much goodness. Not only does it absorb quickly into your skin to provide immediate and long-lasting hydration without that greasy texture often associated with oils. It’s also thanks to its incredibly high concentration of antioxidants and omega fatty acids (both of which protect the skin from free radical damage, whilst also helping to visibly reduce the look of existing wrinkles) leaves your skin looking and feeling perfectly balanced, supple and radiant. And I must note it is also non-comedogenic, which in other words, simply means it won’t clog your pores. So if you suffer from acne but had no luck with oils in the past, this particular oil is seriously worth a try, because not only will it help battle any breakouts you may have, it will help to heal them up a lot quicker, whilst also actively helping to prevent future ones from popping up.

I recommended it for: All skin types, particularly those that are dry, dehydrated or acne prone skin.

How to Use: Morning and night, place two to three drops of this oil into the palm of your hands, rub your palms together and then gently tap the oil into your face, neck and décolleté.
To Note: This product is formulated without parabens, sulfates, preservatives, synthetics and phthalates.

Wellness Tip: Marula’s Pure Marula Face Oil is a multitasking wonder. Not only can it be used as a highly effective anti-aging facial moisturiser – it can also be used a conditioning hair or nail treatment, and it can even be added to a face mask to create the ultimate hydrating treatment.

Priced at £37.50 for 30ml bottle, this wonderful Marula Oil is available to purchase from Holland & Barrett stores nationwide and online it is available from here and here.
