This is probably one of the most talked about products of the year so of course I gave in and got one from Space NK. My wallet cried. It costs a whopping £85 for this little (30ml) bottle of blue magic! Ouch!
OK having got over the shock of the price and the size of the bottle, I placed it in a prime position on my bedside table still in its box to protect the precious oils from any light.
I have been using this now for 2 months about 2-3 nights a week so I think that is long enough to form an opinion. I won’t bore you with the list of ingredients you can look them up here (Sunday Riley) but the blue colour is quite fascinating! This is an oil based retinol product which from the reviews I’ve read is quite a new thing.
The oil smells pleasant enough and is quite thick but sinks in really well. I have mainly used this on its own. So far I absolutely love this oil, so much which probably means I will have to re-purchase it..but I think its worth it. I am 41 this year and I look at this as an investment buy. I am investing in my skin. This has made my skin smoother, less pigmented and just overall fresher and brighter. I immediately started using less foundation and concealer and some days I leave the house with just a dusting of powder – yes really!! But seriously I don’t normally wear tons of makeup but this oil has allowed me to wear even less and still feel great about my skin. For that reason alone its worth the money.
Will you be making your wallet cry and skin smile?!
