Shine Brightening Facial Oil for a Brighter and More Refined Complexion

//product provided for consideration//

So, I think that this is shaping up to be a Skin Care Week on the old blog. I think I'll roll with it. Let's get gorgeous skin!


I have an affinity for beauty oils and I was delighted when I was offered the opportunity to try SHINE Brightening Facial Oil by Amalie.

"Brighten dark spots, fade blemishes and  moisturize dry skin with SHINE Brightening Facial Oil."

Okay, I can't speak with authority on this oil's ability to fade acne marks or dark spots. Due to assiduous effort and age (Mama doesn't break out, anymore), my skin is already pretty even toned and bright. I do, however have very dry skin and keeping it hydrated, plumped and diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles are my main concerns.

Happily, SHINE Brightening Facial Oil helps me with that.


Packaged in a small glass bottle with a dropper top is a mixture of moisturizing oils including Pomegranate, Argan, Jojoba and Sunflower Seed oils to deeply hydrate and feed the skin. Licorice Extract, Lemon Peel Oil, Bearberry and Elderberry Fruit Extracts combine with Grapefruit Seed Oil to help fade dark spots and acne marks and brighten skin all over. Jasmine oil provides a rich sensory experience.

The bottle is painted black to help protect the ingredients from light incursion but the dropper top doesn't do anything to keep air safe. In my opinion, a pump would have been a better choice. Plus, I'm a klutz and I live in fear of dumping this precious stuff all over my dressing table. If I did that, I'd just curl up and cry.


How do I use SHINE Brightening Facial Oil? In a few different ways, actually. After cleansing and toning with a facial mist I may mix this oil with serum and press the combo into my skin, use eye cream to finish. Another is to apply my regular skin care then take a little of this oil and press it in on top to seal and further hydrate my skin. Some days, I just moisturize with the oil. I also like to add a few drops to the ends of my hair.

Every time I use this beautiful oil, I like to cup my hands over my nose and breathe in the glorious jasmine scent. Oh, my! This oil smells so good! If you don't like floral scents or scented products, in general this facial oil will probably not be your cup of tea. The scent is rich tho not super strong. It does linger for a short while after application, which is one reason why I like to use it in my hair!

I would love a barrel of this stuff. Just dip me in it, head to toe, every day.

Organic Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Oil, Organic Argania Spinosa (Argan) Oil, Organic Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Oil, Helianthus Annuus Sunflower (Seed) Oil, Organic Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Extract, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Peel Oil, Arctostaphylos Uva Ursi Leaf (Bearberry) Extract, Sambucus Nigra (Elderberry) Fruit Extract, Citrus Paradisi (Grapefruit Seed) Oil, Jasminum Officinale (Jasmine) Oil.

Have you tried SHINE Brightening Facial Oil by Amalie? I am also test driving the Wink Lash and Brow Oil. The jury is still out on that one, I need more time with it.
