OZNaturals for my Combination Skin

By  | 

One of the most important, and often neglected, tips of skincare is to use products that compliment each other.

Each product should bring out the best in the other. Why do you think products are often sold in a kit? Or there are specific lines such as anti-aging and hydration? Although it’s great to mix and match if your focus is to rid yourself of acne or achieve a radian glow, what you combine in your skincare routine is crucial.

OZNaturals skincare for combination skin

When I have the opportunity to try a group of products–I’m all in. I love to see how a brand specifically creates a line of products to play nice with each other. That is one of the great things about OZNaturals, a 100% vegan certified and all natural skincare company. It has a variety of ways you can pair their products to benefit your needs. For me I needed to tackle hydration, breakouts, and aging while keeping in mind my combination skin. I chose the Vitamin C Facial Serum, Super Youth Retinol Moisturizer, and the Ultra Ageless Eye Cream.

OZNaturals Vitamin C Face Serum

Vitamin C Facial Serum

I was not a fan of the texture of the OZNaturals Vitamin C Facial serum. It was very liquid, like water as far as runny goes. But it’s now one of my faves. I love how it combats acne. It’s application is easy and simple and it does the job. It’s been a great help in clearing the occasionally breakouts–overnight! I received a chemical peel from my sister while visiting family and this proved to be useful as I stopped any use of retinol. It aided in keeping my skin hydrated and protected.

Benefits:

  • hydrates and moisturizes skin
  • naturally lifts and firms
  • brightens your skin
  • fights against lines and wrinkles
  • helps reverse damage caused by environmental stressors
  • provides protection from damaging free radicals
  • supports the production of collagen
  • improves tone and glow

OZNaturals Anti-aging Eye Cream

Ultra Ageless Eye Crème

The Ultra Ageless eye cream smells like olives. Weird, I know. But I don’t mind. I’m obsessed with olives and eat them as a snack. Granted, I don’t want to smell like them, however the scent does quickly fade. I didn’t see a noticeable difference after using this product and realized that it rubs off. Kind of like dry or sunburned skin when rubbed with moisturizer. Maybe it was all the retinol use, but I tested each product individually and mixed and match all three only to find this eye cream as the culprit. It wasn’t pleasant so I decided to only use it at night before bed because during the day when I want to use tinted moisturizer or foundation it’s a mess.

Benefits:

  • boosts new collagen formation
  • helps diminish signs of dark circles and puffiness
  • reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • nourishes, protects, and hydrates skin

OZNaturals Hyaluronic Acid Retinol Moisturizer

Super Youth Retinol Moisturizer

I love how this Super Youth Retinol moisturizer aids the serum in combating acne. It makes my skin look supple and refreshed. Although it can be too rich for Summer, especially if you have oily skin, it’s great for nighttime use. Since it’s super rich, I like to use it during the day when I with a mattifying serum. Like I said, I have combination skin and it depends on what my skin is doing that day and whether I wear makeup. I do wish it had SPF because it would skip an important step. It’s crucial when using retinol products to add sun protection. Lastly, the moisturizer is a generous size and not drying at all like most retinol skincare. 

Benefits:

  • helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • improves skin texture
  • reduces the appearance of pores
  • diminishes the appearance of brown spots
  • creates luminosity and glow
  • supports the production of collagen
  • deeply moisturizes and plumps skin
  • provides continuous moisture
  • strengthens the skin’s barrier function
  • restores and renews firmness
  • gentle but effective
  • delivers visible results without irritation

Overall this was a good combo for my combination skin. My favorite is the serum. I can’t get enough of it since it pairs extremely well with any skincare product.
