I get quite a bit of products that come across my desk and I try to share my thoughts as honestly as possible. This time around I got to test out a whole load of Oolala Collection’s skincare products.

My skin

I have a sensitive skin that is almost the colour of porcelain. (Think, the lightest foundation… but lighter.) In winter I struggle with dry patches, have a bit of sun damage and I’m petrified of fine lines and wrinkles.

The Oolala Collection products I’ve tried…

Hyaluronic Oil Moisture Boost Night

This serum is packed with oils! I used it 3 times a week to get rid of my winter dry patches – and it worked! Since I sometimes don’t leave the house, I would do the treatment will sitting at my desk instead of at night.

The only thing I could complain about is that it has quite a strong scent, but it is to be expected with tea tree oil as one of its ingredients.

I didn’t have any of the other products whilst using this, but the website notes that you should alternate with the SkinESSENTIALS Night Moisturiser for best results.

In this product you will find ingredients such as grape seed oil, sweet almond oil, jojoba oil and tea tree oil (there is more). I already have most of these oils at home to mix into my shampoo/conditioner, so I know that they are excellent.

Gentle Apricot Kernel Scrub

This was probably my favourite product from the collection! It smells divine, plus it feels more like a cream with a slight texture. I could actually imagine being at a spa having a facial with this.

After using the Apricot Kernel Scrub, my skin felt extremely soft. I wish this was an all-day-every-day cream! If you get nothing else from Oolala, get this.

Radiance Repair Serum

This little tester was packed with surprise. I do have some sun damage and pigmentation and decided to whack it onto a patch on my lower jaw line (I should’ve take a photo).

The patch is a bit lighter now, but it could also be because of the mixture of products I used. I also applied some of this serum onto a particularly nasty cat scratch on my hand and the redness subsided very quickly.

Once again, it is packed with extracts from natural ingredients like arnica, cucumber, elder tree, ivy and more.

2in1 Deep Facial Cleanser With Toner – Alcohol Free

This is everything you want your facial cleanser to be. It is alcohol free and has a toner to get rid of excess oil, dirt and dead cells. It feels like a gel, but not as gross, and it doesn’t make foam.

One thing I have noticed is that my pores seem to “look a little less prominent” after using this morning and night for about a week.

This is one of the cheaper products from Oolala Collection, but I think that it is worth it for how it made my skin look and feel.

Do you have any questions about your skin and which Oolala Collection products Daniella would recommend?

Next part of the review…

This will contain reviews about the cream and zit care (from a teenager). Plus I will let you know if the day cream messed with my make-up or not!
