Review of doTerra’s face creams and facial cleansers

Hello everybody!

I tried to post my English video yesterday, just like my Finnish one, but due to technical difficulties I was not able to do it. Anyway, I thought I would review today doTerra’s facial products and talk how to replace them with oils if you don’t want yet another product on your shelves. I made a blog about this last week, if you want to check the details.

Why doTerra’s essential oils?



Review of doTerra’s skin care

Happy February everybody!!

I thought I would compare two of doTerra’s face creams and two of their face cleansers today. I am going to review: Verage Moisturizer, Hydrating Cream, Facial Cleanser and HD Clear Foaming Face Wash.


Face creams

doTerra’s Verage Moisturizer

I have used doTerra’s Verage Moisturizer daily for a long time now. It is a pump bottle, where two pumps a day go for a long way. It is a light cream that doesn’t leave skin sticky at all. It has Juniper berry, Geranium, Jasmin and Sea Buckthorn berry oil in it. It’s been designed to nourish and moisturize skin, so that the wrinkles don’t show as much. All the skin types can use it, but I think it’s perfect for acne and mixed skin types, because of its lightness.

I have dry skin and during summer time Verage Moisturizer works great. At the winter time I noticed that I could do with more hydration. I feel like you can replace the face cream with coconut oil that has a drop of jasmine and geranium essential oil in it, especially if you don’t have acne skin. Coconut oil is very bad for acne skin! Essential oils can have a strong sent for some people, so Verage Moisturizer can be a good option then. Verage Moisturizer doesn’t really have a sent.

doTerra’s Hydrating cream

Very creamy!! DoTerra’s hydrating cream has butter from cocoa seeds and jasmin flower oil. It doesn’t really have a sent at all, so it’s good for people who prefer that. Even for my dry winter skin, it seemed very creamy, but it wasn’t sticky at all! That made me very happy, because I don’t like that feeling! I am definitely going to repurchase for next winter, but I’m afraid that it will be too creamy for the summer! For atopic eczema it might be good even during summer! If you don’t have dry skin at all, Verage Moisturizer is better way to go.


Facial Cleansers

doTerra’s Facial Cleanser

Strong cleanser! It has peppermint and tea tree oil in it. Those essential oils cleanse very naturally and leave skin feeling fresh. I really recommend this cleanser for acne and mixed skin. It’s also probably good for people who like to wear a lot of make up. Cleanser has a sent of peppermint and tea tree oil. I have a sensitive skin and I don’t use a lot of make up. For me it was a bit too strong. Maybe during very warm months it might be ok.

doTerra’s HD Clear Foaming Face Wash

It’s a smaller size pump bottle. With one pump and water I am able to wash my face. My sensitive skin really likes it. It doesn’t have much of a sent at all and it works great. The HD Clear Foaming Face wash has tea tree, eucalyptus and geranium oil in it. Those essential oils have cleansing properties.

Replacing cleansers and moisturizers

You can replace facial cleansers all together with f.e coconut oil. You can mix a drop of tea tree oil in it and then wash it off. I know people who take their eye make up off with coconut oil (don’t mix essential oils with that!). I don’t recommend this to people with acne skin, so you don’t clog your pores! You can easily limit the amount of bottles you need, by using coconut oil as moisturizer and cleanser. You can even mix your essential oils in already at home. My eyes don’t like oily eye make up removers, so I have to use different sensitive products for that.

Tips on how to use essential oils in skincare


Are you ready for the world of essential oils?

Essential oils can improve the condition of your skin and help you in your skin problems. Skin is the largest organ in human body and absorbs essential oils very effectively. If your body doesn’t agree with a particular essential oil, you can probably see it first from your skin. In this case you should choose a different oil from another plant.

Oily skin and acne

When your sebaceous glands are over activated, your skin gets oily. When you add unhealthy diet, lack of exercise, hormonal problems and stress, your skin can get even worse. Skin problems can also be caused by puberty, pregnancy, menopause and menstruation. You can put a drop of T-tree, camomile or lavender oil straight on your pimples. You can also mix two drops of essential oils on your bath water or put two drops of lavender to your steamer to release stress. Roman camomile helps also to the inflammation of acne. Lemon is antiseptic. Basil, grapefruit and lemon grass help to clear the skin. You can dilute two drops of them and use regularly on your face or back.

Dry and mixed skin

The dryness of your skin maybe caused by your sebaceous glands not being active enough, but also outer factors like: coldness, wind and sun. Dry skin gets flaky easily and also ages quicker than oily skin. Mixed skin is very common and the most common skin type among Finns. Having mixed skin means that the skin on your nose, jaw and fore head gets oily, but cheeks maybe still be dry. Dry skin absorbs oils very quickly. It’s good idea to add two drops of essential oils to your face cream or carrier oil like coconut oil or jojoba oil. It helps also to put two drops to your bath water. Good essential oils to dry skin are: Rose, sandal wood (moisturising), lavender, jasmine and camomile. T-tree oil is good for flaky skin. Good essential oils for balancing mixed skin are: Geranium and ylang-ylang.
