Oil vs Serum...What is the difference?

Oil vs Serum...What is the difference?

If you’re confused about how a serum is different to a facial oil, you are probably not the only one. Both work to enhance the benefits of your current skincare routine by giving it a boost of nutrients. But here’s how they differ:

Oils:

A facial oil is usually rich in nourishing vitamins and nutrients essential for your skin. It is deeply hydrating but can be layered under your usual skincare and makeup products with ease. It is a heavenly product, especially for anyone with dry skin, as it is intensely hydrating, without leaving a greasy feeling.

Our Certified Organic Rosehip Oil is a natural oil harvested from the seeds of rose bushes, packed with skin-loving essential fatty acids (Omega 3 and 6) and essential nutrients such as antioxidant Vitamins A and C. It has multiple uses as not only can it be used as a facial treatment but it can also be used on the body and is proven to be effective in minimising the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars, stretch marks and sun damage. Gentle enough for anyone with sensitive skin or skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis to use, as well as your little ones.

Serum:

Serums are easily absorbed by your skin and are generally fast acting. They can differ in texture and usually target a specific skin concern such as pigmentation, redness, wrinkles or texture. Many are light enough to layer under your usual skincare products before your moisturiser, as well as under makeup.

Our Collagen Repair Serum is scientifically formulated with the added wonder ingredient of Plant Peptides, or Protesyal, which is clinically proven to improve your skin’s appearance in only six weeks.

Plant Peptides stimulate collagen by repairing and protecting the epidermal layer of your skin, as well as Vitamins B3, B5 and C, Sunflower Seeds and Sunflower Leaf Extract for nourishment. This product is perfect for those of who want a formula that specifically targets wrinkles, or the prevention of them, and promotes a smoother, more youthful skin. 


If you combine the two, this will give you the maximum benefit of both products and give you quicker results, delivering a plumping and smoothing effect on fine lines and wrinkles! The serum will go on first, followed by the oil, and boost your hydration levels even more by finishing off with your favourite Essano moisturiser.
