Amalie Beauty SHINE Brightening Face Oil is one of a kind. This amazing oil is unlike any I’ve tried in the past. If you are a frequent reader of my reviews then you know that I’m phobic about fragrance. Due to decades of severe migraines I ruled out certain things from my life and fragrance was among those. I even made my husband stop wearing his favorite colognes because of my intolerance. I’m starting to have more tolerance for certain fragrances but not all.
Well I’m hear to tell you that SHINE Brightening Face Oil is fragrant and, to my nose, very fragrant. I smell Jasmine in it very strongly. But I like it, I really like it. From day one I didn’t mind the fragrance to the amazement of other bloggers. I find it soothing and delicious. It’s sort of a miracle to me!
This amber oil comes in a dark black glass bottle. It’s so rich and full that I’m only able to use this at night. I don’t find that other products agree with it though. I apply this in place of any serums or moisturizers before I go to bed. As someone with sleep problems I love that this doesn’t disturb my sleep, instead it enhances it. I can’t smell it come morning but my face feels so beautifully moisturized that I just want to pet myself.
SHINE can help in three ways. It helps with acne blemishes and helps fade the marks they’ve left behind. It’s a wonderful moisturizer, especially for dry skin. It helps to hydrate and nourish thereby diminishing the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Plus it helps brighten your skin in general.
Things to know that make this even better is that Amalie is a cruelty free, vegan company. Most of their ingredients are organic. And it’s made in the USA. Ingredients like Jojoba Oil and Pomegranate Oil are so great for our skin. The Jasmine I mentioned is mixed with Citrus Oils that combine for the incredible fragrance. Feel free to use a small amount on your hair since it can work wonders there too.
Amalie Beauty has two products in their repertoire and I’m in love with both. The creators, Megan and Miquel, won a competition in 2014 from Inc. Magazine’s Coolest College Start-up Competition and started Amalie Beauty. I’m so happy to have learned about them. SHINE can be used day or night while WINK is their Lash & Brow Enhancing Oil which I’ll review when it’s back in stock. These two products have made an impact on my nighttime beauty routine that I don’t want to give up. — Marcia
