Avalon Organics, Intense Defense with Vitamin C, Antioxidant Oil

It is not a secret I am a huge fan of facial oils. After finishing the Madre Labs, Serumdipity, anti-aging facial oil with peprides, I was very curious to try the Avalon Organics, Intense Defense with Vitamin C, Antioxidant Oil that was waiting it's turn in my cupboard.

Let's take a look at what the official claims promise:

''Replenishes natural lipid barrier to retain moisture and defend skin.

Intense Defense with Vitamin C

Antioxidant Oil features a blend of Apricot, Raspberry and Argan Oil, rich in vitamins and essential fatty acids, that absorbs quickly, reinforcing skin's natural lipid barrier, which locks in moisture, and protects skin against environmental stressors.

Environmental aggressors such as UV rays and pollution create free radicals that cause premature signs of skin aging. Studies show that antioxidants can neutralize these damaging free radicals. Intense Defense balances antioxidant-rich Vitamin C, White Tea and Lemon Bioflavonoids to defend skin and support its natural renewal cycle.

I tried it: I absolutely love this oil! It has a very balanced texture - not too oily and not too dry- just moisturizing enough to make my skin feel smooth and hydrated.  I have used it both on its own and added to my night cream and it works great both ways. It is a moisturizing oil so it is rich and better suited for night time use, I would not apply this in the morning as it will make my face feel greasy.
I would totally repurchase this product!
