Bonair Blue Smoother Face Oil has such versatile use that I fell in love with it after first time use. I was walking around this oil like a cat around a bowl with hot milk. There were a lot of doubts due to the simple fact - it's price. Some webshops offer it for 40$ and some for nearly 60USD. All for only 30 ml of oil. Since I love oils in my skincare routine I ended up splurging on it and this is what I think.
First of all, lets shout it out loud: It's amazing! the texture is so rich yet it sinks into the skin without a trace. Well, with minimal trace. Considering that I have put pure oil on my skin to truly see the finish of the product to know how much my pillow has to suffer at night. To my surprise it left only light satin finish on the skin after 20 minutes, when it fully sank into my skin. The only other product that comes close to such amazing absorption is ROVECTIN face oil that I almost ran out of by now. Check the image below for the close-up of my skin to see what I mean with "It freaking sunk into my skin".
The bottle and the packaging of it is stunning as well. I love the heavy blue bottle and how well it is made. The oil inside is blue as well. Not artificially colored but rather the color of blue tansy flower extract that is rich in azulene that is blue by itself. The amount of quality oil in this bottle is incredible. If you are looking for a good source of antioxidants, skin soothing ingredients and oils that focus at restoring the skin barrier, this is it! If you use it in your skincare in PM mixed in your night cream, please go for the basic hydrating cream as this oil already contains everything your skin needs to shine the next day.
What does it do exactly? It makes my skin shine. Not the oily skin shine, radiant shine from within. My skin is smooth, soft to touch and filled with moisture from within. The effect lasted me the whole day and my skin was producing less sebum the next day. I will definitely keep this baby for my vacation and will start using it again in the beginning of autumn. For current hot summer it is a bit too much for my oily skin. I'd rather harvest it's benefits in the months when my skin would really appreciate it the best. As for people with dry or flaking skin, you can and should use it through ought the summer. Having 2-3 drops added to the cream or serum is a perfect way to introduce it to your skin. The rich formula is very gentle and nourishing and would suit mature skin as well. I highly recommend this beautiful oil and will repurchase it when I run out.
