Dr. Jackson's Natural Products 03 Face Oil - A Review

Hello Lovelies

Today I have a review of the Dr. Jackson's Natural Products 03 Face Oil. I was kindly sent this for review purposes from the lovely Laura from Beauty Expert a couple of months ago and I have been trying out for the last few weeks and I wanted to share my thoughts with you.

What Dr. Jackson says about the product

My thoughts

I have been using the Dr. Jackson face oil for around 4 weeks now. I have extremely dry skin and was looking forward to using the face oil and thought it would be great for my dry skin, after reading about the product, I was looking forward to firmer, toned and more radiant skin.

I applied the face oil to my cleansed and toned skin using 2 drops from the pipette style dropper. The oil has a nice consistency, not too runny and not too thick and applied nicely rubbing easily into my skin. The first thing I noticed about the face oil was the scent, it has a very strong herbal type scent to it, and one I really disliked, this is my least liked scent though so not the best start, and as I have mentioned in previous posts my medication/condition has started to have an effect on my sense of smell and certain smells I find strong and have a real dislike to them, unfortunately this was one of those scents.

I persevered and got past the scent which wore off after a few minutes, and then waited for the product to sink into my skin. I waited and waited and 2 hours later the oil still hadn't absorbed and I had to remove it with a cotton pad. Since the first time I have changed things up by not using my spray toner before I used the oil and that made no difference to the absorption of the oil, I then tried to use the oil only at night and leaving over night, but still even hours later the oil had not absorbed into my skin.

I have very dry skin and in the past have tried face oils from other brands which have absorbed within a few minutes so I was really disappointed with the Dr. Jackson face oil, I think it might be nice for a gentleman with razor burn or anyone with sore skin as the oil contains anti inflammatory ingredients. I haven't noticed any difference to my skin at all, it isn't more hydrated or radiant and unfortunately it isn't any firmer either.

I am really disappointed in the face oil and certainly wouldn't purchase it, I had high hopes for the face oil especially because my skin is so dry, but I'm afraid it just wasn't for me.

If you do want to try the Dr. Jackson face oil it is available from Beauty Expert here or if you'd like to try any of the other products in the Dr. Jackson range they are available to buy from here. I did like the fact that the product was 100% natural and that was something I was very impressed with.

I absolutely love Beauty Expert as a place to purchase my favourite beauty items online, and will continue to shop there, they have a massive range of beauty products from skin care to hair care with everything in-between and are one of my favourite places to buy my beauty products online, the customer service is excellent and they offer free standard UK delivery which is fantastic.

Have you tried the Dr. Jackson face oil? What did you think?

Thank you for reading, much love as always,
