Years ago, I wouldn’t touch a facial oil because I didn’t think they were good for my skin. Oh, how the times have changed!
I now love Rose Hip and Lavender oil in my skincare routine. I’ve tried many others, and use oils just about every day. Most of the oils in my stash are blends, and work wonders for my skin.
I recently discovered Cranberry Seed Oil. I first saw it in a DermaE oil that I absolutely love. I then had the pleasure of trying Queen B Pure Cranberry Seed Oil.
Pure Cranberry Seed Oil is extremely nourishing for the skin and hair. Some properties of Cranberry Seed Oil are antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, anti-fungal, antiseptic, emollient and sunscreen.
Pure Cranberry Seed Oil is also rich in Vitamin A and E, Phytosterols, Phospholipids, Tocotrienols, Tocopherols and Omega 3, 6 and 9 Fatty Acids.
Have I sold you yet?!?
It’s also rich in minerals such as calcium, iron and magnesium!
I’ve only just started using Pure Cranberry Seed Oil in my skincare routine, but I’m already excited! It smells amazing…like Ocean Spray and is a golden amber color. I’ve been reading that it has a shelf life of a whooping two years, and can be applied directly onto your skin or mixed with other products. I’ve been mixing a few drops in with my Rose Hip Oil before applying my night cream. I don’t notice a major difference in my skin because I’ve only been using the Cranberry Seed Oil less than a month, but I can say that my skin feels more hydrated in the mornings after I’ve used it. I literally melts right into my skin and has very little absorption time.
I’ve also read some mixed reviews about using Pure Cranberry Seed Oil directly on your skin. The consensus seems to be if you are oily or acne prone you should mix the Pure Cranberry Seed Oil instead of using it solo. I can’t say how much truth there is in that because I have combo skin, and I’ve only come to that observation by reading at least a dozen webpages on the topic.
