Soothing Facial Oil
Soothing Facial Oil takes Jordan Samuel’s former Etoile Facial Oil formula and makes a few ingredient tweaks to deliver the same results. The perks continue because now this new version is in better packaging that helps better preserve the formula’s stability and effectiveness.
Unlike facial oils formulated with skin-sensitizing, fragrant essential oils, Soothing Facial Oil utilizes a fragrance-free blend of antioxidant- and fatty-acid rich plant oils perfect for the sensitive skin that it claims to help. In particular, those with normal to dry, flaky skin (including those prone to eczema) will appreciate its skin-calming, hydration-enhancing effects.
Above and beyond the plant oils, skin is treated to additional supporting antioxidants such as soybean seed extract and ubiquinone (coenzyme Q10), as well as skin-replenishing squalane. The oil texture feels luxe and moisturizing, yet it absorbs quickly without leaving an overly greasy finish.
The former Etoile Facial Oil came in a clear glass dropper bottle which compromised the effectiveness of the light-sensitive antioxidants, but this version’s an opaque bottle alleviates that issue. Good move, Jordan Samuel!
You can apply this facial oil on its own or add a few drops to your favorite non-SPF moisturizer, eye cream or serum. No matter how you apply it, you get a soothing, healthy-looking, dewy glow.
- Beneficial mix of non-fragrant plant oils.
- Delivers replenishing fatty acids and antioxidants.
- Soothes dry, flaky, sensitized skin.
- Opaque packing helps keep the formula stable.
A soothing facial oil loaded with nourishing and protective oils to help a sensitive or sensitized skin become calm. Soy bioflavonoids help to take down inflammation while CoQ10 gives antioxidant protection for an oil that’ll keep you glowing all day long.
Jordan Samuel Skin has a bit of an interesting origin story, in that the companys namesake creator didnt get his start in this skincare business instead, he was a professional ballet dancer in Seattle for a number of years before becoming an aesthetician. After spending a few years at different spas, Samuel opened his own, and eventually, created his line of skincare products. You can see his past experience reflected in the names of his products, as many are inspired by ballet terms.
The offerings are by no means expansive, since there are only four products in the lineup, but they are in general good. The only misstep is a cleanser that includes potentially aggravating citrus extracts. The other products, however, are straightforward yet well-thought out, including an oil-based retinol product thats a great starting point for those who havent used retinol before.
To sum up, the brands philosophy is en pointe (sorry, we couldnt resist!), and it will be interesting to see how this fan-favorite develops in the future.
