Review

My Skin Type: Combination to OIly, Sensitive, and Acne-Prone Skin.

Packaging: It comes a dropper bottle. Initially, I felt it is a glass bottle but it is not. I don't know what the material is, doesn't feel like cheap plastic but looks like unbreakable for sure. I can't comment if it can be travel-friendly.

Fragrance: Has a really strong fragrance of oils. Not bad but can be overpowering. 

My Experience: Breakouts! Breakouts! Breakouts! I massaged it well before going to bed and the next morning, all I saw is clogged pores and pimples. I was really shocked to see that how a facial serum without any harmful chemicals can cause pimples overnight?

When I shared about this on my Instagram, I received a lot of DMs telling me that Argan Oil is comedogenic (can clog pores) and only after that, I realized why it clogged my pores and gave me pimples. After this, I couldn't even dare to try this again. 😃

Though, a lot of websites says that Argan Oil is Non-Comedogenic and is 0 on the scale of Comedogenic Scale, on the other hand, a lot of consumers posted their stories where they experienced acne after using argan-oil based products. I can't say if it was argan oil, rosehip, jojoba, carrot seed or any other oil which caused me pimples, but this serum didn't work for me at all.
Because I was not able to use this serum on a regular basis, I can not comment on the benefits it would have given.

Talking about the consistency, it is definitely lightweight. It is a runny serum and easy to massage in. While massaging, I was able to feel a bit of stickiness like facial oil. It is somewhere between a facial serum and facial oil. Because of it is texture, It will be ideal for dry skin to use in night time skincare routine only, that is, before going to bed. 

I would not recommend this St.Botanica Argan Oil and Rosehip Face Serum to Oily Skin and not at all if you have sensitive and acne-prone skin. If you have dry skin and don't get breakouts, you can give this a shot. 

In Short,
St.Botanica Argan and Rosehip Face Serum is only good for Dry and Non-Sensitive Skin due to presense of Comodegenic (Can Clog Pores) Oils such as Rosehip, Jojoba or Carrot Seed Oil, and if used by oily and acne-prone skin, can cause clogged pores and pimples. Because It didn't work for me and resulted in pimples, I can't comment on the goodness and benefits it would have given. 

Pros
  • Free from Harsh Chemicals
  • Lightweight
  • Vegan
  • Only for Dry and Non-Sensitive Skin
  • For Night Time use only

Cons
  • Comedogenic
  • Not for Oily, Sensitive and Acne-Prone Skin
  • Strong Fragrance
  • Gave me Clogged Pores and Pimples

So, this was it for today. I hope you have found this post helpful.
