Lather & smudge - face oil
lather & smudge Face Oil provides a 100% natural alternative to moisturiser creams.
Skincare products - particularly moisturisers - are often filled with artificial chemicals which have can lead to some very unhappy skin! At Lather & Smudge we like to go back to basics, and look to nature for our skincare, so our face oils are as natural as natural gets. The main ingredient is jojoba oil. The rest of the face oil is made up by a blend of sweet almond, grapeseed and rosehip seed oils, with a touch of vitamin E to keep it fresh. No funky chemicals or artificial preservatives.

Jojoba oil is increasing in popularity for natural skincare, and there is good reason! Jojoba oil is technically not an oil but a liquid wax. This magical golden substance is lighter than most oils, coating your skin in a thin protective layer which keeps it moisturised and feeling good throughout the day. It is similar to your skin's natural sebum, so it mimics the moisturised glow nature intended! Last but definitely not least: jojoba is non comedogenic which means it doesn't clog up your pours, making it a top choice for avoiding acne and breakouts.
The other half of our face oil is made from a gentle mix of oils commonly used to provide extra moisture to thirsty skin. As the main ingredient is sweet almond oil, which is very light, the oils are quickly absorbed by the skin to give it that hydration. Contrary to how it may sound, using face oil does not make skin oily. The skin absorbs the oil so that you don't feel it shortly after. This is actually partially why we mix the moisturising oils with jojoba. The oils get absorbed by the skin, hydrating at a deeper level, while the jojoba provides an ultrathin layer of goodness that lasts the day.
