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.
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.
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.
