If you make one skincare resolution for 2014, in my opinion, it should be adding a facial oil into your routine. No matter your skin type, there’s an oil for you, and whether yours is normal, dry, oily, sensitive or aging, Sanctuary Spa’s Therapist’s Secret Facial Oil deserves a spot on your vanity.
Created at the Sanctuary Spa in London’s Covent Garden, this not-so-secret step in their mind-blowing facials is a blend of pure oils (including sunflower, jojoba, wheat germ, frankincense and rose hip) that replenishes moisture, plumps up wrinkles and calms the skin. Rich in vitamin E and omega-3 and -6 fatty acids that strengthen the skin’s barrier, this sumptuous-smelling oil makes your skincare routine feel all that more pampering. It absorbs fast yet leaves skin looking more radiant than ever—and it delivers the extra hydration most of our skins need during the colder winter months. For an extra surge of moisture, layer with night cream before bed, and you’ll wake up to smoother, more supple skin. And if you start now, you can ring in 2014 looking younger than you did 365 days ago. Trust me.
Here’s the hitch: In the U.S., this product is available exclusively through QVC, and unfortunately it’s sold out. But if you know someone hopping the pond, ask them to scoop one up for you at Boots (or Sanctuary Spa).
