How I treated my skin's winter tantrum with the new facial oil from Alya Skin.

As much as I love winter for the fashion and the excuse to drink my body weight in hot chocolate, my skin doesn't feel the same. Like the drama queen it is, it tends to feel extra dry and inflamed as soon as the weather drops below 20 degrees. That's why I've recently introduced the Alya Skin Multi-Complex Facial Oil into my routine. The oil dropped in February this year and I've been using it around 3–4 times a week for the last 4 weeks.

Before we get this review on the road, we should mention that Alya Skin gifted us the facial oil to try but with no obligation to review or post.

About the product

As you might've guessed from the name, this Alya Skin facial oil is a multi-tasker. It repairs and strengthens the skin's barrier function, while purifying to reduce redness. It also balances excess sebum, which otherwise could lead to oily skin and breakouts.

In typical Alya Skin fashion, it's made with vegan-friendly and Australian botanical ingredients. This includes Australian rosewood, kangaroo flower and wattle seed extracts as well as hemp seed oil, squalane, macadamia seed oil and jojoba seed oil.

The review

Alya Skin Multi-Complex Facial Oil | $39.95

I've been using the Alya Skin Multi-Complex Facial Oil in my PM routine. After cleansing, I warm around 3 drops in my palms and press it into my face and neck. I also enjoy adding a few drops to my moisturiser for a super hydrating combo.

One of my favourite things about this facial oil is that it's silky without feeling greasy. The lightweight formula soaks in quickly and feels like just the right level of hydration before hitting the pillow. Not only does it help seal in moisture, it also smells like strawberries and rosewood which is enough reason to use it in my book.

My skin is quite dry and sensitive, so it takes a beating when the weather cools down. However, this facial oil has soothed the inflammation and redness that had flared up as a result of the chilly wind that has been blasting through Sydney recently.

Pro tip: I've also been using the oil to moisturise my cuticles when they're looking a little dry and it works a treat.

Final verdict

You can benefit from a facial oil all year-round, but I would definitely recommend using this oil if your skin is feeling a little worse for wear from the dry winter weather. I usually prefer a serum over a facial oil, but the non-greasy formula feels gorgeous and is easy to work into your routine.
