I know exactly what attracted me to MAD HIPPIE ANTIOXIDANT FACIAL OIL. It’s the name. I love the name of this line. My dad was a “Mad Man” and we lived and breathed advertisements, commercials and PR in our house. We didn’t watch the TV shows as much as we watched and discussed the commercials on TV. I know my dad would be as impressed with Mad Hippie as I am.
When Mad Hippie offered to send one of their products I had a hard time deciding which to try but I’m in my oil phase of life and enjoying what they are doing for my skin. I’m so glad that this is what I chose because it’s a wonderful facial oil.
What makes this line unique, aside from its creative name and packaging, is that everything about the line is all-natural yet it has active ingredients that are fabulous for treating signs of aging (meaning what I live with), sun damage and environmental damage.
I’ve been using Mad Hippie Antioxidant Facial Oil as my night time moisturizer and my skin is lapping it up and thanking me. I’m probably using more than I need but I love the ingredients and want my skin to enjoy them too. I’m sure I could use this in the daytime with a lighter touch but at night I don’t have to worry about SPF or how something works with my foundation.
Mad Hippie Antioxidant Facial Oil has the best ingredients. (information from MadHippie.com)
“Argan Oil – Providing instant, non-comedogenic hydration to the skin while naturally occurring triterpenoids work to heal scar tissue, reduce inflammation & protect the skin. Containing over 80% essential fatty acids, as well as naturally occurring vitamin E, this exotic oil works to moisturize & revitalize the skin.
Sea Buckthorn Berry – This berry native to the Tibetan Himalayas, is rich in vitamins A, B, C, D, E, K, P, carotenoids, flavonoids, phenols, folic acid & fatty acids. In fact, the buckthorn berry is the only plant in the world to contain omega 3, 6, 7 & 9 all together.
Blueberry Extract – This superfruit is rich in antioxidants including vitamins A & C that protect the skin by neutralizing aging free radicals. Blueberries have been shown to reduce the rigidity of capillary walls underneath the skin, promoting circulation & aiding in the reduction of redness & flushing.
Pomegranate Oil – Potent antioxidant that is a high source of ellagic acid, a polyphenol that has been shown to inhibit the growth of skin cancer. Believed to also mediate the effects of ultraviolet rays & skin discoloration.
Camu Camu Berry – Amazonian berry with 30x the vitamin C of an orange.
Broccoli Extract – A recent study at John Hopkins found that broccoli extract applied topically reduced UV induced redness & inflammation by an average of 37%. This is thought to be a result of the sulforaphane found in broccoli.
Raspberry Seed Extract – High in antioxidants such as vitamin E, vitamin A, and omega fatty acids 3 & 6, raspberry seed extract is also know for its anti-inflammatory and anti-septic qualities. High in ellagic acid, a natural polyphenol, raspberry seed extract provides UV protective benefits, while protecting the skin from damaging free radicals.
Strawberry Extract – Another antioxidant-rich berry, Strawberry extract has been shown to have UV protective effects on the skin.
Goji Berry – Containing 18 vital amino acids, zinc, selenium, phosphorus and vitamins B1, B2, B6, C & E, goji berries provide the skin with essential nutrients and antioxidants. In fact, the superfruit contains more beta carotene than carrots, and even more iron than spinach.
Hemp Seed Extract – Rich in omegas 3, 6 & 9, as well as antioxidants, hemp seed oil provides the skin with instant moisturizing and protective benefits.
Grape Seed Extract – One of nature’s most potent antioxidants, shown to inhibit UV generated skin damage and protect skin from free radicals.
Sunflower Seed Oil – Rich in vitamins A, D & E, as well as essential fatty acids, sunflower seed oil has natural moisturizing and anti-inflammatory effects on the skin.”
The Antioxidant Facial Oil comes in a glass jar with a dropper. Now I’m the biggest klutz in the world and when I use this I pray I don’t drop it. I’ve broken way too many items lately. I’m sure though that it’s the freshest and most sanitary way to keep this oil so I’ll forgive them for the packaging. Or maybe they should forgive me for being a klutz.
This is preservative free and a very natural way to moisturize. The facial oil has a very mellow light citrus scent that’s a pleasure to smell as I’m applying it. I love the feel of this on my face at night and I love what it’s working at doing for my skin while I sleep. At $24.99 for the bottle I think the price is right on (as the mad hippies would say). You can find this for sale at the Mad Hippie website as well as on Amazon, VitaCost (20% off). some Whole Food markets, iHerb.com and more.
In the cold months I think I’ll add some into my moisturizer or use it under my moisturizer but for now it’s just me and the Mad Hippie and we’re a happy couple.
