My Trusty Sunflower Face + Body Oil

Thursday, April 16, 2015
If you've been following my blog for a while, you may know that I have been loving all of the body care products that the brand My Trusty Sunflower have brought out over the past few months. I have reviewed their lavender hand cream (here) and more recently I have reviewed their body butter (here). I love both products and they have made it into monthly favourites posts, so when they released a face and body oil I had to try it! 

The *My Trusty Sunflower Face & Body Oil (£12.99, 50ml) contains so many lovely natural ingredients such as sunflower seed oil, rosemary leaf oil, grape seed oil and fruit oils. I have been using this oil both as a face and body oil, however mostly for the body. TMI alert, I have been shaving my legs a lot more recently as I'm trying out a HPL permanent hair removal system and after shaving I have been covering my legs in this oil and it has definitely helped add the moisturise to my skin and it's been reducing the irritation and flakiness. 

The oil absorbs very quickly, I was surprised at how quickly it absorbs. It also smells amazing as all of the My Trusty Sunflower products do and it is lovely to apply. The oil feels very smoothing and nourishing but it isn't heavy or greasy. The oil absorbs very effectively, so much so that I have been adding a couple of drops to my daily hand cream (the Yes! Nurse hand cream) to make it even more nourishing but I can start typing again soon after massaging it into the skin. 

I have been using it on my face as well and it doesn't irritate my eczema at all. I either use it before my moisturiser or I mix it with my moisturiser and it just adds a boost of hydration, leaving my skin smooth and moisturised. I cannot recommend this oil enough, even the packaging is great; also as with all My Trusty Sunflower products, the purchase of these products supports NHS patient care. Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5. 

Have you tried this oil? Have you tried any products from My Trusty Sunflower?

  2. I've never heard of this brand before, but it sounds wonderful! Any type of body oil that's not too greasy is a win win for me. ;)

  3. Not tmi at all - it's a part of being human, after all! ;) I love lotions and oils that can be used for both face and body. I've never heard of My Trusty Sunflower before, but it sounds like a cute name for a brand!

  5. Oh I'd like to try this! I'm a huge fan of oils. Have you tried the Boots Botanics Face Oil? It looks like you get way less in a bottle, but I've also been enjoying that one lately!

  7. Sounds like a great product! I often find oil takes a while to absorb, so the fact this absorbs quickly is amazing.
