Review: Holistic Green Beauty's Orchid Cellular Protection Oil

I recently raved about Holistic Green Beauty's gorgeous Chocolate Cleansing Balm (review here), but it definitely isn't the only must-have in this brand's portfolio! The Orchid Cellular Protection Oil is an ultra hydrating anti-­ageing skincare oil that enriches the skin with organic botanicals. With such dry skin, this oil is bound to be an absolute life-saver throughout the cold, winter months.

Review of Holistic Green Beauty's Orchid Cellular Protection Oil


Description

This exquisite oil helps to lock in moisture, combat dehydration, and eliminate fine lines and wrinkles. This oil is thin, but has a luxuriously silky texture that really plumps and softens the skin. Unlike oils that can be a bit greasy and heavy, this product glides onto the skin and absorbs completely within five to ten minutes.

In addition to its luxurious consistency and pleasant, floral scent, this oil is made with so many amazing ingredients! With an array of antioxidants and fatty acids, this oil truly nourishes the skin at the cellular level. In particular, Orchid extract has regenerative properties and is rich in skin-loving minerals, while Chia Seed and Baobab aid in the prevention of wrinkles and restore elasticity. Calendula and Copaiba are also added for their anti-inflammatory benefits to soothe and condition the skin while enhancing its natural radiance.

Application

In the morning, I like to apply this oil in gentle, circular motions after cleansing and toning, but before moisturizing. This allows the product to absorb nicely into my skin and provide a proper canvas for any makeup that I may wear. At night, however, I massage this oil into my skin after my moisturizer to create an occlusive layer that locks in moisture and seals in everything I’ve applied beneath it. You may need to experiment to figure out the order of application that works best for you, but you'll probably want to apply it underneath your moisturizer if you have particularly oily skin.

Wrap-up

The Orchid Cellular Protection Oil is another win for Holistic Green Beauty! Much like HGB's Chocolate Cleansing Balm, this oil is such an indulgent treat for my skin! The texture is lush and silky, yet it absorbs beautifully into the skin. I find that it plumps and balances my dry skin, and plays nicely with the other products in my skincare rotation. With its potent anti-aging ingredients that nourish from the inside out, your skin will thank you for using this gorgeous oil!

The Orchid Cellular Protection Oil retails for $111 USD (0.7 fl. oz., 20 ml).
