Dermalogica Phyto Replenish Oil review*
Dermalogica Phyto Replenish Oil is designed to strengthen and restore the skin’s natural protective barrier and shield against the environmental stressors that can take their toll on your skin. It’s also good for anti-ageing as it smooths fine lines and locks in the moisture present in your skin to prevent it drying out throughout the day. Now I’m fast approacing my 30s (gah!), I’m really concerned with ensuring that the skincare products I use are great for anti-ageing. This oil helps to restore lipids, natural protective oils in our skin, which are critical for maintaining healthy looking and feeling skin.
Phyto Replenish oil is made up of plant-based active ingredients including camellia japonica which stimulates collagen production and chia seed oil which soothes dry, itchy skin and helps to hydrate.
As usual when I receive oil products, I was a little reluctant to put this on my skin – it just feels weird adding oil to an oily skin type! It’s easy to apply and a little bit goes a long way – you only need four small droplets for your whole face and you can pop it on before you moisturise or add it to your moisturiser to help the spread. It’s easily absorbed and surprisingly light for an oil product so it doesn’t sit on your skin as an extra layer of oil.
I’ve been using the product for a couple of weeks now and my skin feels glowing (dewy though – not oily!) and smooth. Sometimes a worry with adding something to your usual skincare routine is that it will cause sensitivity or break outs but I’ve had neither of these things. Another thumbs up for Dermalogica from me!
