Product Review—Organic Skin Care: An Anti-Aging Dry Oil You will Love—Vapour Organic Beauty Essence Restorative Night Treatment
I've found my favorite facial moisturizer, and I don't like to deviate from it one bit. Just when I thought my skin couldn't look and feel any better, along comes Blinging Beauty Editor-in-Chief, Tracey, back from New York Fashion Week with a new product from a brand we love—Vapour Organic Beauty!
In the beauty industry, Vapour Beauty has earned a well-deserved reputation as an outstanding organic skincare line. Not only are their products skin and earth-friendly, but their performance completely breaks the traditional expectations of all-natural products with weak results. So when I see that cobalt blue packaging, I know something good is inside.
Tracey returned from New York raving about some dry oil from Vapour that isn't even on the market yet. She got a privileged sneak preview during Fall Fashion Week 2012. Unlike me, Tracey doesn't even like oil. So I knew that if she was so excited about this Vapour Dry Oil, it was something big. Fully aware of my undying affection for oils of all kinds, she
threatened warned me that this was for trial only and I couldn't have hers. Boo.
Now, as I mentioned earlier, I was really reluctant to try any new skin care products. I've had a rough time lately with crazy, unpredictable postpartum skin, and I've FINALLY found a good balance. I was afraid to mess it up with this new miracle oil, but as a licenced esthetician and beauty guru, Tracey knows what she's talking about and I trust her opinion. Plus, I couldn't pass up a chance to try out one of my favorite products from one of my favorite brands!

This cocktail of organic super heroines includes Omega 3. 6 and 7, vitamins A, C, and E, skin nourishing minerals, and high levels of polyphenols.
And try it out I did. After my exfoliation routine, I picked up the small, lightweight bottle and pumped once. A generous squirt of oil came out, which I massaged gently into my skin. The light, clean fragrance dissipated quickly. I kid you not, Vapour Organic Beauty Essence Restorative Night Treatment felt sooo good on my fingertips and face that I didn't want to stop rubbing it in!
The pump dispenser was a bit too liberal for my needs, but this proved to be a non-issue. The excess just went into my decollete, which felt softer and more supple as well.
Afterward, this skin care oil didn't leave a greasy or heavy feel, which is a problem with many oils even on uber dry-combo skin like mine. This dry oil absorbs like no other. And my face *swoon* felt like butter all day! It was incredible how soft my skin was with just one use. Over time, it left a soft glow that was NOT oily. Amazing, right?
Vapour Organic Beauty Essence Restorative Night Treatment is definitely going to be a much-raved about product once it hits the market. I would highly recommend it to beauties of all skin types and ages! It is an oil, so if you have seriously acne-prone skin it may not be your cup of tea. But don't be afraid to try it, as you may stumble upon a new must-have like I did!
Pros: Lightly scented dry oil, excellent lightweight moisturizer, absorbs well, a little goes a long way
Buy Again: Yes
Packaging: 4 Blings—Love the lightweight pump, but it's a little more generous than I would like.
Overall: 5 Blings
