Combray Facial Oil Review (Complete)

One of my favorite skincare products at this moment is the Combray Facial Oil (a regenerating face oil) which is a facial oil with only two ingredients and it has made my skin AMAZING! It is an antioxidant and multifunction oil.


And if you also have oily skin and you were scared just to read the word oil, wait a minute, because I also have oily/combination skin and the product is recommended for all skin types. Yes, I was also afraid of oils at first, but once you find an interesting product, you understand that even oily skins can use oil products, but attention, just apply the right amount to your skin and choose the right product. Anyway, let’s go back to Combray Facial Oil review. (This is a spontaneous review, I really liked the product, it’s not a sponsored blog post).

Óleo Combray: Review

Combray Facial Oil contains only 2 ingredients and it’ss a multifunctional oil, but what does it promise?

It is an anti-aging treatment, which moisturizes the skin, soothes and regenerates it, and protects the softness of the skin.

I should add that I LOVE skincare products, but I had never been so excited about a single product as I am with this one, since I noticed visible improvements on a kind of a bad skin time I went through a while ago, while it was also very cold here in Milan, anyway, I talk more about my experience bellow.

• Combray Facial Oil: my favorite facial oil

Combray Facial Oil: review

Like I wrote above, the Facial Oil from Combray has several functions and properties in one single product.

You probably noticed in this last photo that the bottle is almost halfway through, so I really try a skincare product for a long time, because generally cosmetics are not products that give you immediate results and according to the brand’s information, I read that better results were visible after one month of using the product, by the time I’m writing this full review, I am already using Combray facial oil for almost 3 months every day, twice a day, and I’m really enjoying it.

Combray Facial Oil is rich in antioxidants and it contains only two (magic) ingredients: grape seed oil and another one called Oxofulleram, which is an antioxidant. The product has no other ingredients, preservatives, coloring or perfume and besides it all, the brand is cruelty free!

• Combray Facial Oil: product’s purposes

  • Anti aging
  • Hydration
  • Calming and regenerating the skin
  • Protect skin against oxidation caused by stress, pollution and inflammation

According to the brand’s website, they have clinical studies that demonstrate high product efficacy in reducing the appearance of free radical damage caused by oxidative stress, aging, sun, air pollution and inflammation.

In fact, you already start to see a difference in your skin in the early days, but of course I went deeper into the use of the product and I waited two months to be able to properly see the effects of the product on my skin and be able to actually review it properly.


• Combray Óleo Facial: How to use it

Combray Oil Review

The product should be applied after washing your face, I have been using it both in the morning and at night and since it has several functions, I have been trying an almost minimal daily skincare routine: applying a cleanser gel to wash my face, an eye cream and the Combray facial oil.

Just a few drops for the face and neck, the recommended by the brand is: 6 drops, I think I have a small face or not for having a very dry skin, I often apply only 4 or 5 drops and that’s enough to my face. You should apply the product on the face and massage it with your fingertips, so that the product is better absorbed by your skin.

As you can see by the color of the oil in the photos, it has a dark color and the only care is actually massaging the product so it is well absorbed by the skin (it does not get your skin colored or anything) and take care of waiting a little at night and do not apply and lie on a white pillowcase straight after the application. But the brand itself has the instructions on how to apply the product and which are the movements indicated on the package.


• Benefits and my experience with Combray Facial Oil:

Combray Facial Oil (Review)
I started using the Combray Facial Oil at a time when it was very cold here in Milan and my skin, that’s actually a bit oily, was dry and even peeling close to the eye area. In fact I was even afraid to try a new product with the skin like that, but since I had met the brand on Cosmoprof last year (a cosmetics beauty fair that’s very respected worldwide), so I thought it was worth the try, since it has purposes like to moisturize and regenerate the skin.

And it was great, it helped my skin recover very well and in the following days and it also helped to keep it beautiful during the very cold days here, applying the product every day, I had no problem at all in my skin getting dry. It was super soft and hydrated all the time, even when I was in Switzerland and we had negative temperatures such as -6˚.C

I felt that in addition to being softer, my skin looks very moisturized and bright, in fact, I find myself in a great skin moment and I believe that the product also played a part on it. I also try to eat very healthy and, of course, that is something that helps to have healthy and beautiful skin. But with regards to the cold weather, I believe Combray Facial Oil has helped a lot in keeping my skin hydrated.

Facial oil Review: Combray

To summarize: I really liked Combray Skincare Facial Oil because the daily application left my skin looking healthy, soft and moisturized even on the very cold winter days. Plus, it’s a multifunction product that makes it easy for anyone who wants more everyday convenience and I also really enjoyed their travel size packaging, I’ve been using it straight on all my last trips.

The Combray brand is from the Netherlands, but Combray Facial Oil is sold and delivered worldwide by the brand’s website and you can get 20% OFF when you buy with the coupon code: MANU20 (the coupon is valid for only one month, so enjoy it while you can). Website: Combray Skincare

Review: Soft Clean Powder – Arkana Skincare

One brand that I met at Cosmoprof was Arkana, a polish skincare brand that I have been enjoying a lot lately. The Soft Clean Powder from Arkana was my favorite product from this brand, because it’s a facial cleanser that is in powder texture, it’s so cool!

Check my full review on the Soft Clean Powder from Arkana, a skincare product I really liked, you can also watch a video where I show this and other products from this beauty brand.


•Soft Clean Powder from Arkana:

Arkana Soft Clean Powder Review

It became my favorite product from Arkana and it’s also the one from this brand I was the most excited to try and do I tell you, it actually lived up to the expectations.

It has the different kind of product feeling that I love, but I also really like the quality of this facial cleanser. When in contact with water, it gets a soft texture that cleans my face well. It’s just a cleanser, it won’t remove makeup, so don’t forget to remove your makeup before this step.

This product is recommended for sensitive and delicate skin, as well as irritated skin by chemical peel treatments or excessive sun exposure. It’s also hypoallergenic.


Arkana Soft Clean Powder Review


The Soft Clean Powder has many active ingredients such as amino-acid, aloe vera, Allantoin (hydrates, smoothes and removes dead cells), Salicylic Acid (clears and unclog pores, exfoliates dead cells and it has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties), lemon extract (rich in natural vitamin C and with antioxidant qualities) and cornstarch (that absorbs the excess of sebum and mattifies the skin, being adequate also for oily skin).

It leaves my skin soft and smooth, I have oily skin and it doesn’t make my skin oily, but it also doesn’t dry it out, but I always apply a moisturizer day and night after washing my face so I can get it moistened and hydrated even after using products for oily skin (oily skin also needs hydration).


The coolest thing about this product is that it’s in powder! I always wanted to try a facial powder cleanser since I’ve heard about them a few years ago from asian brands, but I didn’t have my hand on any before the Soft Clean Powder from Arkana. Here’s how the texture looks like when dry:

Soft clean powder from Arkana

When you have wet hands and then get a bit of the powder on your hands, it transforms the powder texture into a foam/liquid kind of texture that’s easy to apply and very comfortable. It’s also a very no-mess kind of product.

You can see better this texture on my video review of the Arkana skincare products I had tried, the Soft Clean Powder is the first one I talk about on the video:


Another interesting fact about the Soft Clean Powder from Arkana is that since it’s in a powder texture, I love to take it when I’m traveling, because it’s much easier to carry than a liquid facial cleanser would be.
