Mia's Review: NaturalistCo Facial Oils [Sponsored]



NaturalistCo is an energetic local company run by a dedicated young team, and is a firm believer on the goodness of organic and natural handmade skin care. Aiming to become Singapore's best natural skin care brand with high efficacy and also to not compromise on sourcing and finest and most active ingredients around the world, NaturalistCo is striving to unleash the miracle of natural skin care. They've made their commitments to keep 'natural' as as integral part of their product philosophy and hence their formulations are free from synthetic colours, artifical fragrances, mineral oils, silicone, propylene glycol, petrolatum, animal derivatives, harsh detergents and parabens.


And I was glad to receive two of their popular carrier oils to try out! Isn't the packaging so cute?


Highlight of NaturalistCo’s product: 

- Organic and natural skin care products derived from premium botanical oil and food
- Food grade ingredients
- Handcrafted and made in small batch
- Special bottles and jars to preserve the nutrients for full benefits
- Enjoy fresh handmade skincare with extended product’s lifespan (with patented Miron Violet Glass from Netherlands)
- Shorter lifespan compared to synthetic skin care products, made from fresh ingredients with no artificial preservative.

According to my skin issues, I was recommended both the Grapeseed Oil and Sweet Almond Oils. 



Grapeseed oil is a good source of essential fatty acids and vitamin E. The polyphenols and flavonoids found in this oil contain strong antioxidant compounds. It is mildly astringent in nature and helps to tighten and tone skin. The oil contains proanthocyanidins, which are very potent antioxidants, that help in diminishing the sun's damaging effects and lessen free radical damage.

If you haven't heard of using grapeseed oil on our faces, then you're missing out! Other than helping with prevention of acne and skin aging, grapeseed oil also helps to tighten out skin and minimises the appearance of dark circles. It also does wonder for our hair, helping with hair growth and combating dandruff, but of course it's not that economical to be 'splurging' a precious 15ml bottle on that. 



Sweet almond oil is enriched with Vitamins E, A, B1, B2 and B6. It is a light oil that easily absorbed by skin and rarely clog pores. It is also rich in Omega-9 and Omega-6 Fatty Acids.  This oil comes packaged in 15ml amber glass bottles. It can effectively reduces dark circles, wrinkles and crow's feet around the eye area. It is a good moisturiser and help to balance the skin.

Other than using sweet almond oil as a moisturiser and to reduce dark circles and signs of skin aging, you also also add in some fine sugar into the oil and get your own homemade facial scrub! Sweet almond oil can also be used as part of your deep skin cleansing regime, or to relieve skin problems such as eczema, psoriasis and other skin rashes. 

And I find that whenever we use any oil on our skin, it tends to leave us with a heavy and greasy feel. However, these two oils are extremely lightweight and gets absorbed into my skin quickly, and my skin feels soft and supple the next morning. However, instead of using these oils 'straight up', I mixed two or three drops of the oil into my usual aloe vera gel to get a more refreshing feel.

  4. I love essential oils and I would really love to get my hands on them! I wish they also accommodate international shipping. I currently use oils to get rid of my eye bags. When I visit SG, I think I am going to buy one of them.

  5. Essential oils are so versatile! I've used lavender EO in milk tea, peppermint in a cleaning scrub for our floors, and orange oil to clean wood. I love the packaging of this brand, I must say! Something to look out for when I visit Singapore soon.

  7. Grapeseed minimizes dark circles? Then I am definitely missing out. Now I wanna try this product. I think it's good that it doesn't leave that greasy feeling. Personally, I don't like oil products because my skin tends to become darker because of it, my skin is acidic you see. But then again if I use this overnight then why worry about skin getting dark. So yeah I am definitely considering this.
