I’ve been using this oil for about 2 months now, and thought it would be a good idea to review it for you guys (since it is pretty pricey).
Quick Notes on Luna Sleeping Night Oil by Sunday Riley:
- Price: $131
- Quantity: 1 oz
- Claims: Battle wrinkles, minimize pores and overall even out your skin-tone.
- Notable ingredients: Trans-retinol Ester, Blue Tansy, German Chamomile, Avocado Seed Oil. (Via http://www.sephora.com/luna-sleeping-night-oil-P393718)
- Pros: NO parabens, NO sulfates, NO phthalates
- Cons: Dye (why Sunday Riley?? why??), cannot use while pregnant.
- Method of application: Simply apply a few drops after cleansing, and drying your face.
I bought this primarily to even out my skin-tone and minimize my pores, so I cannot speak about the oil in regard to fighting wrinkles because I do not have any. I usually applied three drops to my face in the evening, after cleansing my face with my Clarisonic and my St.Ives green tea cleanser. It does not feel heavy or very greasy at all. The immediate results were that it provided a glow to my face!
The next morning, my skin was glowing, pores were smaller and some acne spots even shrank. (Yay!). Over the two months, I noticed that my skin tone did even out but it was not as drastic as I had hoped, but the glow it provided was ahh-mazing.
I also experimented (bad habit) and used it in the morning AND evening for a week and it broke me out immensely (SO DO NOT DO THIS!). I also dislike how they added blue dye to the product, seems a little unnecessary to me. Overall, it is a moisturizing oil to even out hyperpgimentation, but I feel as if it has serious competition with other, much cheaper options, such as the Fresh Seaberry Moisturizing Oil.
Hope you guys enjoyed this,
PS- I will also be reviewing the Fresh Seaberry Moisturizing Face Oil so you can compare and contrast. 🙂
