I have been having a bit of a love affair with all things Bodhi lately, I have been incredibly stressed and busy and their wonderful aromatherapy body care has been my absolute saviour in the evenings. I recently attended the Bodhi Spa Soirée in Birmingham and had an absolutely fabulous time learning about the new product launches (you can read more here) and with every new product I try my love for this brand deepens.
One of the recent additions to the Artisan range has been the Neroli Lucé Revitalising face oil* and it is wonderful addition to my facial routine. Unlike the majority of facial oils on the market this is designed to be balancing so it is ideal for combination, acne prone or normal skins in need of a boost.
This gorgeous oil contains a whole host of fantastic ingredients that are beneficial to the skin:
Tunisian Neroli oil known for it's balancing properties and it's ability to improve skin elasticity, Frankincense has a whole host of wonderful benefits including reducing scarring and inflammation and Sea Buckthorn oil has a high fatty acid and lipid content and is a natural source of Beta-carotene and Omega 7 which are anti-ageing. Also included in this wonderful blend is Grapeseed oil, Evening primrose oil, Apricot Kernel oil and Jojoba oil each with a host of skin benefits. There is nothing in this oil that is there as a filler, each ingredient has been selected with care and expertly blended.

Neroli Lucé has a glorious dark yellow colour characteristic of products with Sea Buckthorn as an ingredient, the smell is quite heavenly but I will say the Neroli has a strong presence in this blend, luckily for me it is one of my favourite scents and I like to inhale deeply before massaging into the face.
The texture is simply the lightest oil I have ever come across and it melts into the skin almost instantly leaving no oily residue. If you are an oil sceptic I urge you to try this, because it feels like no other oil that I have tried before. I have been using it whilst I am experiencing some breakouts due to stress and it helps heal blemishes and prevents scarring. It really does balance the skin and it is one of the few oils in my collection that I happily apply both in the morning and at night time, because it is so light.
If I am tired and stressed this is the product that I reach for because it gives a real boost to the skin enabling me to look more awake and giving that "glow" that we all yearn for. You can find this gorgeous oil for £32 (for 15 ml) on the Bodhi website, they also offer a fantastic service where you can purchase a sample and the price that you pay is fully redeemable against the full size. This contains no cheap carrier oils so a little goes a long way and in my opinion it is fantastic value for money.
