NSF – The MicroOil

This post contains gifted items:

Tatu created The MicroOil (£49.00 for 50ml), the first product from NeuroSkinFeeds.

The antioxidant-rich oil is based on the camelina sativa flower and has a calming effect on both the mind and skin. Key ingredients include:

• Camelina sativa seed oil – a strong antioxidant due to high vitamin E content; acts as an anti-inflammatory, calming sensitised skin, whilst adding moisture; boosts the immune system; packed with omega-3 fatty acids; suitable for all skin conditions

• Plukentia volubilis seed oil – protects against the damaging effects of sun exposure; regulates oil production; maintains elasticity; soothes and prevents inflammation; promotes softness, smoothness, and suppleness; hydrates the skin without clogging the pores; helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines; gentle enough for all skin conditions

• Prunus amygdalus dulcis (sweet almond) oil – skin-conditioner which helps soften, nourish and hydrate; adds nutrients including calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, and vitamin E; replenishes and reduces dryness in the upper layers of the skin; helps reduce fine lines, adds moisture and relieves itching; helps to minimise signs of premature ageing and create a glow

• Squalene oil – fights off skin-damaging free radicals which contribute to the signs of ageing; balances oil production; anti-inflammatory; helps with skin conditions such as acne and eczema; helps to boost blood circulation, promoting the formation of collagen for firmer, plumper skin

These oils were selected for inclusion in The MicroOil because of their skin benefits and their positive effect on mental wellbeing. The oils contain ingredients such as tryptophan, a precursor for serotonin. Serotonin is a feel-good hormone and neurotransmitter which helps us deal with stress and feel calm and happy. The omega 3 also reduces inflammation in the brain, as inflammation can cause mood shifts, headaches and more.

This oil is vegan and cruelty free as well as being suitable for sensitive skin.

I have been using this mainly on my acne scarring around my chin and my jawline for the last few weeks and have noticed that any dry patches or scarring are slowly healing and this leaves my skin feeling a lot more nourished. You don’t have to use much and it feels really nice to apply and soaks in well.

Do you use a face oil?

    This oil sounds really interesting, especially if it looks like it’s working on the scarring from your spots previously. I love any kind of oil that helps my skin stay hydrated but also gives a nice even complexion!

    Sounds like a great product. I really could use something like this. I am having a bout of dryness and acne lately due to the weather change.

    I have heard of using oils for your skin but this is the first time that I’ve heard someone directly discuss how a product can also help your mental health. That is such a great benefit! Especially right now when so many people are struggling with stress and anxiety, surrounded by negativity.
