Voici mon Top 6 d'huiles pour le visage. Et oui, vous avez lui 6, c'est hyper bizarre, mais je ne pouvais pas faire autrement. Je n'utilise pas tout ça en même temps, mais je fais des rotations et surtout, je suis attentive aux besoins de ma peau. Il y en a 3 parmi ces 6, qu'ils ont pour moi sensiblement le même rôle, malgré la composition qui est différente. Je parle de Mahalo Vitality Elixir, Root Science Bare Defense et Skinny Skinny. Je les alternes pour prolonger le plaisir :)

Here is my top 6 of face oils. And, yes, you read 6, I know it sounds strange, but I could't do it differently. I don't use all of them at the same time, but I rotate and, more than anything else, I am attentive to my skin needs. There are 3 oils among the 6 that play a similar role for me, even if their composition is different. I am talking about Mahalo Vitality Elixir, Root Science Bare Defense and Skinny Skinny. I alternate to make the pleasure last longer.




MUN No. 1 Aknari Brightening Youth Serum** (utilisation : 3 mois et + après ma douche avant le souper de façon régulière, mais maintenant + de 3 mois en alternance avec d'autres huiles)

J'en ai parlé à plusieurs reprises, ce n'est plus une cachette : Je suis follement amoureuse de cette huile. Seulement 3 ingrédients la composent ; l'huile d'argan, l'huile de rose et d'huile de pépin de figue de barbarie (Prickly Pear Seed Oil).. Un mélange incroyablement efficace pour ma peau. Au levée, ma peau est repulpé, les ridules estompées et mon teint éclaircis.. J'ai eu des résultats à la première application et j'en ai toujours. 95$ / 20ml

English translation
MUN No. 1 Aknari Brightening Youth Serum** (use : 3+ months, after shower, before dinner in a regular way, but now 3 months in rotation with other oils)

I talked about it many times, it is not a secret anymore : I am totally in love with this oil. Only three ingredients in the list : argan oil, rose oil, prickly pear seed oil. An incredibly efficient mic for my skin. When I wake up, my skin is pulpy, my wrinkles softened, and my tone clearer..I've had results since the first application and I still have. 95$ / 20ml
Ingredient : Prickly Pear Seed Oil*, Argan Oil*, Rose Oil*.  * Ecocert Organic


YULI Cell perfecto PM (utilisation 6 semaines et + chaque soir au couché)

J'avais lu plusieurs reviews dont celui de Jade du blog nephriticus ici (un blogue que j'adore où l'on retrouve des reviews ultra honnête), celui de Brenda The Wanderlusting Beauty ici et celui de Ruhi du blog Ruhimaach ici que j'ai lu par la suite, après avoir reçu ma bouteille de Yuli Cell perfecto Pm.

Si vous êtes intéressés par ce produit, je vous conseille d'aller lire les articles de ces 3 blogueuses, je suis plus que d'accord avec ces reviews. Ce serum a donné des résultats exceptionnels sur ma peau : il a diminué mon acné hormonale sur les machoires de façon incroyable, il a égalisé ma peau (les zones grasses), il a désengorgé mes pores de façon visible. Il faut être patiente pour voir les résultats, j'ai commencé à les noter après la 3ieme semaine. Cette huile est dispendieuse, mais vaut amplement le prix vu les résultats. Je prévois déjà de racheter ce sérum une fois qu'il restera quelques millilitres au fond, je ne veux pas en manquer. 98$ / 30ml (NYC)

English translation
YULI Cell perfecto PM (use: 6+ weeks, every night at bed time)

I had read may reviews like the one from Jade of the blog nephriticus ici (a blog that I adore and where you can find really honest reviews), the one from Brenda from The Wanderlusting Beauty ici and Ruhi from the blog Ruhimaach ici that I read after I received my Yuli Cell perfecto Pm.

If you are interested by this product, I recommend that you read the articles from these 3 bloggers, as I more than agree with them. This serum gave exceptional results on my skin: it reduced my hormonal acne on my jaw in an incredible way, it equalized my skin (oily areas), it unclogged my pores in a visible way. You have to be patient to see the results as I started to notice them after the third week. This oil is expensive, but is absolutely worth its price, after seeing the results. I already plan on buying again this serum when there will be a few millimetres left.. I don't want to be stuck without. 98$ / 30ml (NYC)

OLO - Youth Preservation Serum** (Utilisation Matin en alternance depuis + de 3 mois)

Je ne m'attendais à rien de ce sérum, en fait je ne m'y étais jamais attardé. J'ai reçu ce serum, car j'ai gagné le concours de Epic Beauty Bar et Stéphanie avait choisie des produits pour moi en prenant compte de mon type de peau. Je l'ai essayé que dernièrement et j'ai été surprise! J'ai toujours voulu essayer un serum avec de l'huile de graines de melon, car cette huile est réputées pour être riche en vitamines et minéraux. De plus, elle est non comédogène, donc elle laisse respirer la peau. Elle serait aussi idéale pour detoxifier la peau en réussissant à détruire le sebum (ce qui contribue à causer l'acné) dans les pores de peau. J'ai remarquée que dernièrement que cette huile en contenait. Je n'ai remarqué que des côté positifs à ce sérum, je n'ai pas d'effet de peau grasse, il est léger et idéal pour le jour et ne m'a pas causé aucun bouton. Il faudrait que je l'essaie en continu pour vous en dire plus, mais je ne pouvais pas le laisser de côté pour ce billet. 59$ / 24 ml

OLO - Youth Preservation Serum** (Use : more than 3 months - in the morning alternately)

I didn't expect anything from this serum, as I wasn't paying much attention on it. I received this serum because I won the Epic Beauty Bar and Stephanie had chosen some products for me according to my skin type. I tried it recently and I loved it ! I always wanted to try a serum with melon seed oil, because this oil is known to be rich in vitamins and minerals. It is also non-comedogenic, so it let the skin breath. It is also supposed to be ideal to detoxify the skin by being able to eliminate skin pore sebum (which contributes to cause acne). I recently noticed that this oil contained some. I really noticed only positive elements about this serum. I do not have any oily skin effects, it is light and ideal for daytime, and it didn't cause my any acne. I should try it more continuously to be able to tell you more, but I couldn't leave it out of this post. 59$ / 24 ml
Ingredients : citrullus vulgaris (watermelon) seed oil, caprylic/capric triglyceride (and) phoenix dactylifera (date) seed extract, organic rosa damascena (rose) oil, citrus aurantium (neroli) oil, organic boswellia carteri (frankincense) oil, organic cymbopogon martini (palmarosa) Oil, tocopherol (natural vitamin e)

  1. Have been waiting for this post ever since you mentioned it! Xx Lovely swatches and so glad that you are seeing results with Cell Perfecto PM. Super intrigued by the Skinny Skinny face oil since it has black cumin listed as the first ingredient :) it's quite reasonable for the size! I have another oil from OLO - Morning Glory - but I've hardly ever used it. Your review makes me want to dig it ou :D great post, Julie!!

  3. Fab review Julie, I love reading about face oils! And I must admit I haven't tried any of these so now my list has grown six-fold (I totally blame you). I am really intrigued by Yuli, it sounds so hard-working and effective. And the Mahalo Care one too...heck they all sound lovely! I'm currently using Yoshimomo's Repair oil during the day and Pai's Rosehip in the evening (this one is ok...I'm not sure it's quite as good as many claim it to be but this is where skin type comes into play, we're all different!). I do love Prickly Pear seed oil so will keep my eyes open for oils using this ingredient. Like Mun :) xx

  4. Great post Julie! I loooooove OLO Love Springs serum because it smells so good and it was one of my first facial oil that helped heal my skin after a very bad breakout. I want to go back to it, but I still have a lot of face oils to use up right now!

  5. Oh lala, beaucoup d'huiles miss!! Quelle selection :-)
    Il me faut 5 mois pour finir un flacon moi :-). Mais c'est vrai que j'alterne rarement car je trouve qu'il est difficile de voir les effets a long terme si je change souvent. Voila, en tous les cas, l'huile de Skinny skinny me tente vraiment....et Yuli aussi, et Mahalo aussi...enfin....toutes quoi :-)..bonne journee!!x

    1. Je sais, je sais je devrais peut-être pas alterner autant. Par contre lorsque j'en introduis une nouvelle dans ma routine c'est un bon trois semaine sans alterner, de cette façon je peux voir les avantages et surtout verifier qu'elle ne me cause pas de l'acné... Sinon MUN a été la plus exclusive a date, et le petit flacon est presque terminé, je l'économise :)
      A plus Audrey! xx

    4. Tu utilises le Yuli le soir essentiellement ? En ce moment j'utilise le roseship de Paï le matin et le soir Mahalo, la je pensais faire Mahalo le matin et Yuli le soir, penses-tu que ce soit une bonne combinaison ? Ou alors mieux vaut-il utiliser le même sérum matin et soir ? Merci d'avance :)
