ABOUT THIS BRAND
Former professional makeup artist, beauty expert and Founder of SkinOwl, Annie Tevelin, struggled with acne and skin imbalances until she went on vacation to Vietnam and discovered firsthand the remarkable benefits of mangosteen. Known by locals as the ‘queen of the fruits’, mangosteen is eaten and applied directly to the skin in indigenous beauty rituals. Skin-transformed and ingredient-enlightened, Annie returned home to Los Angeles and enrolled in a cosmetic chemistry program to pursue her quest to develop natural skincare that would achieve the results she experienced abroad.
At SkinOwl, careful ingredient sourcing and purity is paramount. Annie is committed to forming relationships with small cooperatives in Morocco, Africa and Southeast Asia that support women and families through organic farming. SkinOwl represents a return to simplicity, ritual and ethical transparency with innovative ingredient combinations in self-care beauty for the skin and body.
I'm 50 years old and have very sensitive skin in constant need of moisture. I used the Beauty Drops as my PM moisturizer after cleansing and toning, and my skin always looked great and felt very smooth the next morning. Because the bottle size is generous, it provided four months of use, and I was able to test it in the fall, winter and spring (with breaks in-between); it worked well in each season. I like the minimal ingredient list and citrus-vanilla scent. I let my husband use it for a few weeks, and he liked it, too. I would consider purchasing this again.
I look for three things in a face oil: 1) efficacy, 2) the texture on the skin, and 3) the scent. As to the first, if you are acne-prone, this is definitely a face oil you should consider. I did not find that the anti-inflammatory properties helped with my mild rosacea, however, which is more of a pressing concern for me. The finish on the skin was okay, but not as good as my favorites (Max and Me Enchanted, Honua Olena). The killer was the scent. I do not like sweet scents in face products. The creamsicle note isn't overly strong, but it isn't pleasing either. I passed this on to a friend with acne issues.
I wasn‚Äôt expecting to love this oil so much. There‚Äôs a lot of product, a little goes a long way, and it smells heavenly! I have tried so many things for my really dry skin and while I still have some flakiness throughout the day this has come closer than a lot of other green beauty products at keeping my skin as flake free as possible. I say that, but I also need to clarify that green beauty products in general have done a way better job for my skin than any other products I use to apply.
I received this yesterday and used it only one night and my skin that has been ANGRY for weeks woke up calmed and soothed. I love that it only has a few ingredients, and they seems to be a magical solution for my sensitive acne prone skin. Hydrating enough without being pore-clogging . And the scent is heaven!!!! I asm so happy to have found this product!
This is the most magnificent bottle of facial oil ever! The smell is just divine. Citrus, vanilla, and a touch of something else. The scent is reminiscent of a creamsicle, only even more luscious and decadent. Not only does the oil smell amazing, it feels even better. Somehow the drops are extremely moisturizing without being greasy or too heavy. The first time I tried these drops I woke up with the most gorgeous, supple, dare I say glowing skin in the morning and my chapped, sunburned skin was gone. This product is definitely a winner.
