The alternative blog for cruelty free skincare, veggie food and alt/geek culture

I received this product in a Souk Souk box (which I paid for) and I’m so glad I’ve discovered Orchard View  as they are:

  • Vegan
  • Cruelty free
  • Environmentally responsable
  • Made by hand
  • 100% natural
  • Contain 99.5% Soil Association certified ingredients
  • They use reclaimed, recycled & recyclable material where ever possible

Rose Geranium Harmonising Organic Facial Oil 10ml £9.50


The science bit…

‘Ingredients in this blend have numerous active botanical components which have been shown in studies to positively impact the skin. Anti-inflammatory Omega 6 helps to keep the skin hydrated & to prevent Trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL). Due to its molecular structure, Jojoba mimics the action of sebum, the skin’s own natural lubricant, so deep cleanses blocked pores, moisturises and promotes a healthy, glowing complexion. Rose Geranium also helps balance sebum & oxygenate the skin. High Altitude Lavender has complex, proven pharmacological benefits including antibacterial & antioxidant actions. An added ingredient in all our blends is 100% natural Vitamin E, a clinically proven, moisturising anti-oxidant.’

My verdict….

This oil has a subtle flowery scent which is very calming when gently massaged into the skin – like a little hug for the face. It has a small pipet for easy application. I’ve been applying this night and day for 9 days.

  • My skin looks plumper and healthier
  • Old acne scarring looks diminished
  • My combination skin is balanced without any breakouts
  • My skin tone is even and less prone to redness/inflammation
  • Absorbs fairly quickly so makeup can be applied soon after

Rating 5/5

Allergy/Skin Advice: Contain nuts and seeds. Also if you have very sensitive skin then a patch test is always recommended.

      It’s been a joy to use and it’s lasted a lot longer than I thought. I wasn’t familiar with OV Naturals before I tried this. I think it might have been in a Souk Souk beauty box.
