Actually, I was a bit hesitant to give facial oil a try. They are usually rich, overwhelming, or greasy when applied. Belif Rose Gemma Oil was a rare exception. I couldn’t resist the enticing rose scent that it gives so I went on and paid some RM260 for a bottle of 30ml worth of rosey-ness. But even Belif feels kinda heavy on the skin too.
But for Huxley Secret of Sahara Oil Light and More, it is a different case. I actually bought it after trying a sample of it earlier, and was really impressed by how facial oil can be so lightweight, moisturizing and non-greasy at all. Many Huxley products feel kinda heavy or overwhelming on my skin, like the Huxley Cleansing Water, Sunscreen, and even its Toner, but surprisingly not its Oil. So today, I’m gonna talk about this uber lightweight, moisturizing and deeply antioxidizing facial oil that really impresses me. It is the oil that I will recommend and probably repurchase in the future!
