This Face Oil Is Currently Dominating Instagram (and You've Probably Never Heard of It)
Suffice to say, Insta-famous beauty guru Farah Dhukai has harnessed the power of Midas. Not only is she dominating the Instagram game with quirky beauty tips (ahem, Listerine as dandruff spray), but she’s also teamed up with a group of cosmetic scientists to create a restorative, hydrating, and multi-purpose beauty product. Oh, and it’s littered with specks of 24K gold (no big deal). It's the facial oil to end all facial oils, according to just about every 'gramming beauty babe out there. Does it all sound too good to be true? Not to worry—we did some digging. (No Gold Rush pun intended.)
What it is: a natural, non-toxic moisturiser that aids in smoothing out your makeup—it blends and melts right into your skin for an airbrushed finish. Ideal for all skin types, it promises to make your skin appear fresh, dewy, and luminous. We definitely don’t mind the fresh citrus scent while using it, either.
Why it's awesome: The concoction of rosehip, pumpkin seed, lemongrass, and orange peel oils protects your skin from environmental damage. And while the golden flecks are certainly pretty to look at, they also slow collagen depletion and prevent sagging skin.
How you can use it: What really sets this face oil apart from the mass of others out there—besides, you know, being infused with gold—is how versatile it is. Generally speaking, it’s a daily moisturiser, but there are actually three different ways you can apply the treatment. Switch out your primer for this oil, and your makeup will be longer-lasting and easier to apply. Mix two or three drops into your foundation (more if you tend to have dry skin) for that goddess-y, celestial effect. Or, like Dhukai, you can opt to blend it on with a Beautyblender by squeezing two drops onto a damp sponge and dotting it on over your foundation. (Mixing them together before applying works too.)
