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.

Essential oils for skin care


I made today a vlog about skin care with essential oils. I go through different essential oils for different skin types (ageing and dry skin) and especially oily skin. I mention in the video a vlog, where I talk about how important it is to use pure essential oils. I made an article about this same topic, where I list all the oils that I talk about in this video and how to use them.

Essential oils for skin care


Essential oils can balance, cleanse and renew your skin. It’s very important to check the quality of the essential oil brand you are using. Even if the label says 100% pure essential oil, unfortunately it doesn’t mean anything. Companies mix synthetic chemicals and other ingredients in them. There is no real regulation in the industry, other than what the companies do themselves. (I have a vlog about this)

You can improve the health of your skin tissue with good quality essential oils especially in your face and hands. You should dilute always your essential oils (except lavender and tea tree oil you can use directly in special circumstances) with jojoba, coconut or some other vegetable oil or with basic lotion without sent in it.

Here are tips for using essential oils for skin care:

  • Eucalyptus: Cooling and antiseptic, you can use for example for spots and boils.
  • Geranium: Contracting and balancing, cleans and firms the skin. Reduces inflammation and treats acne, eczema and little cuts.
  • Juniper berry: Contracting  and cleansing, can help with acne, eczema and oily skin. Don’t use while pregnant.
  • Lavender: Antiseptic and stops inflammation. It can reduce eczema, sun burn and mosquito bites. It can relieve mild burns in the skin. Lavender also increases cell growth and healing, so it can help with scars.
  • Roman chamomile: Calming and antiseptic, it’s good for sensitive and dry skin, relieves acne and eczema.
  • Sandal wood: Softens dry, ageing and wrinkly skin, it also can relieve sun burn, nettle-rash and other irritation in the skin.
  • Tea tree: Antiseptic and stops inflammation and fungus, it’s good for boils and skin rashes and other inflammation in the skin.
