Influenster : Julep Boost Your Radiance

When I received the Posh VoxBox from Influenster I was excited to try out the Julep Boost Your Radiance Reparative Rosehip Seed facial oil. Some say this helped their skin tremendously while others had adverse reactions (breakouts, redness etc.). After using it for over 2 weeks I can say I’m happy with it.

When I was pregnant with my second son my skin underwent a drastic change. I went from super oily to combination to flakey, dry and sensitive. I drank lots of water, tried and slathered on all the lotions and creams but, it was a losing battle.

I gave birth to my third son a few months ago AND I’m currently breastfeeding both babies (23 months and 5 months old). You can probably imagine how moody and hormonal I can get, ha. Slowly but surely my hormones are regulating back to my combination skin (oily t-zone). Not sure if I should be happy about this or what but, I definitely did not enjoy having dry (often itchy!) skin.

PROS :
clean, floral scent
packaging (glass bottle, sturdy dropper, cap seals tightly)
absorbs well
lightweight
moisturizing
multi-purpose use
great for dry skin
a little goes a long way
reasonably priced

CONS :
scented
be wary if you have sensitive skin
may not be for those with very oily skin
not travel friendly

OVERALL :

After washing my face, I apply two drops on my fingertips and dab it along the areas where my skin is dry; usually on my cheeks and jawline. The oil absorbs well and there’s no greasy residue. I enjoy the clean, floral scent. It’s not overpowering and it doesn’t aggravate my allergies.

In the morning my skin feels hydrated and smooth. I haven’t noticed any clogged pores or milia which is a fear of mine when trying out any new skin product. It didn’t make me breakout either. What I did notice the first couple of times is it made my T-zone and chin extra oily and a bit red. Now I avoid those areas when applying.

As a bonus you can use this oil on your elbows, knees and cuticles. I feel adding a couple drops to my body lotion has really helped with keeping my skin hydrated and “glow-y” all day. Do note there isn’t any SPF so you will have to apply sunscreen.

As far as the claims of reducing hyper-pigmentation and fine lines, the jury is still out. I haven’t yet noticed a difference in the weeks I’ve used it. Perhaps it will take a month or so to really make a difference.
