I use the oil this way: At first I tone my face with a chamomile toning lotion from Clarins then I apply a few drops of the oil on my face. It is easy to apply as my face is still wet from the toning lotion and the consistency of the product is very smooth.

3. Packaging. In a white small cardboard box was housed a bottle with the precious oil. The bottle is round-shaped made of thick glass with a drop dispenser inside. Overall it looks stylish and expensive. The product is pleasant to use.
The drop dispenser is convenient and it doesn’t take out too much of the oil.
4. Product description:
The oil is of a transparent yellowish color with unreal consistency! It’s very lightweight and even weightless. The formula is nourishing yet not greasy.
The oil spreads over my face nicely and the most important for me is that it absorbs fast with no oily film or residue. After using this oil, my skin is moisturized, soft with no dryness or flaking. I replaced my night care cream with this product. There’s just no sense to continue using cream as the oil is lightweight yet nourishing. I’ve tried a lot of facial oils and I’ve never had such a great result with any other. The product has a very beautiful fragrance. It’s difficult to describe but I’ll try to.
The smell is natural with herbal, floral and oriental notes. It’s sweet, potent, thick and very pleasant. The process of oil application is a real aromatherapy session.
