I need an oil in my skincare routine both in the morning and in the evening. My skin is oily but it's also dehydrated and a bit dry. An oil mixed with a hydrating serum I found out is the proper way to make sure my skin stays hydrated and smooth. But it can be a little tricky to find a proper oil for a combination skin.
Estelle & Thild - Multi nutritient youth oil
I really liked the Estelle & Thild Multi nutritient youth oil. It's a mix of super-fruits enriched with powerful antioxidants, vitamins and essential fatty acids. These elements create a super oil that combats the early signs of aging and hydrates the skin from the inside out. This oil is certified organic and has a nice scent of fresh citrus, it's a mix of different oils, vitamin E and some essential oil. My skin tolerates the essential oil in this product well.
I will probably repurchase this oil but i will first test the Jordan Samuel one.

Jordan Samuel - ÉtOile facial oil
I've read so many positive reviwes of this oil so I decided to try it out.
First ingridient on the INCI is sweet almont oil and I know my skin loves that.

Grown Alchemist - Detox Serum Antioxidant +3 Complex
Description: This lightweight, oil free instant absorbing serum is recommended for daily use to detoxify the skin of not only traditionally targeted Oxygen free radicals but also Carbon and Nitrogen free radicals. The result: the skin is noticeably detoxed of free radicals metabolized by the body as a result of factors like diet, and environmental factors like air pollution or UVB/UVA rays from the sun.
Tri-Peptides and complex Antioxidants targeting Oxygen, Carbon and Nitrogen free radicals combine leaving the skin hydrated but more importantly noticeably without wrinkle causing free radicals,
My opinion: I love that this serum is organic, it contains peptides for an antiageing effect, it's rich in antioxidants, vitamin B5 and Niacinamide. Contains some essential oil like linalool and has a discrete scent of citrus. My skin doe's not react bad to this. This lightweight serum is though a little bit to lightweight for my dehydrated skin. It needs a bit more thick formula in a serum. The pros with this lightweigt formula is that it's really easy to mix with an oil and it immediately absorbs into the skin.
INCI: Aqua (Purified Water), Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Extract, Dimethyl-methoxy Chromanol (Antioxidant), Panthenol (Provitamin B5), Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), Aqua (and) Diaminopropionoyl Tripeptide-33 (and) Caprylyl Glycol (Naturally Derived Peptide), Sodium Dehydro-acetate (Organic Listed), Hydroxyethylcellulose (Polysaccharide), Glycerin (Plant), Phenoxyethanol, Polysorbate 20 (Plant), Pelargonium Graveolens (Geranium) Oil, Cananga Odorata Flower (Ylang Ylang) Oil, Lactic Acid (Plant), Citral (Plant), Geraniol (Plant), Citronellol (Plant), Linalool (Plant).
Jordan Samuel - Facial Serum Hydrate
My pick of replacement serum for the Grown Alchemist serum is the Jordan Samuel one.
I'm really curious of the brand and I like that this product contains some organic componens and hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a really good ingridient for my dehydrated skin. It also contains some peptides and antioxidants. Have not tried it yet but I hope the formula is a bit thicker than the Grown Alchemist one.
Description: Hyaluronic acid, stabilized Vitamin C, and hexapeptides combine with cucumber, tamarind, and passion flower extracts to give you healthy, dewy skin all day long.
