Review: Olivarrier Fluid Oil from Jolse

7 Aug

Oils are popular in the beauty community lately. One of them is Squalane. It’s being recognized because of its non-oily feel. It’s used in many cosmetic products for its moisturizing properties. There are different types of Squalane. The traditional is derived from Squalene (mostly made of shark liver oil). The other one is plant-based which is more preferred now.

Many have claimed that it doesnt feel like oil at all. It made me curious and I wanted to know if it’s true. I’ve been also adding pure ingredients in my routine. Luckily, Jolse gave us the opportunity to try Olivarrier’s Fluid Oil. I’d likd to thank them.

Description:
The freshness and quick absorption provides enough moisture for any time of the year, keeping the skin smooth by making the dead skin cells elastic without blocking the pores. The ingredient similar to the skin will improve the dryness and the roughness of the skin safely. The colorless, odorless, and harmless plant squalane is the only ingredient contained in the product. The single ingredient oil will soothe the tightness of the skin, dry eyes and lips, rough hands and nails, damaged hair, sensitive and weak skin of expecting mothers and babies.

Ingredients:
100% Squalane

Pros:
– 30ml of product
– Nice packaging and has dropper applicator
– Plant-based, ethical
– Chemical free and no additional ingredients
– Multifunctional
– Feels light
– Sinks in the skin
– Doesn’t feel oily
– Instantly moisturizes dry skin
– Did not cause breakouts
– Did not trigger my dermatitis

Cons:
– Quite expensive, $42
– Has level 1 comedogenic rating

Let’s discuss the cons first $42 is quite expensive for me. The brand is not in the drugstore category. So that explains the price range. It’s level 1 Comedogenic. Although it has that rating, I didnt have breakouts while using this.

The pros: I prefer oils in dropper bottle like this. There’s no leak so it’s safe for traveling. The best thing is it’s plant-based. It’s ethical and we didnt harm anything. I’m impressed with the texture and performance. It feels like oil at first. But once you apply it on the skin, it sinks in really well. Photos show the before (immediately after applying Fluid Oil) then fully absorbed after a few minutes.

It does not feel heavy unlike other oils. It moisturizes dry patches immediately. I focus on the undereye, cheek and mouth area to avoid wrinkles. It minimizes the appearance of wrinkles. It’s great to use under makeup if that’s your concern. It has a subtle glow which makes skin look healthy. Not the oil slick look.

Overall, I’m satisfied with Olivarrier’s Fluid Oil. I recommend this for dry skin or if you’re feeling dull. Also, the bottle looks gorgeous. It’s minimalistic and chic. This could be added to your skin care collection.

You can get this on Jolse.com. It is currently discounted for $35.70.☺❤
