Orico London Superseed Vitamin Dry Multi-Oil

My whole thing is skincare — it’s the first thing people notice, and as a photographer, I think I’m probably more attuned to it than other people. Moisture is critical to looking fresh faced and well maintained, and while you of course need to drink those 8 glasses of water a day, you also need to moisturize your skin. All of it.

My thing this summer has been the Orico London Superseed Vitamin Dry Multi-Oil. (Isn’t that a mouthful?) In the warmer summer months I switch out my heavy body creams and lotions for body oil, and this has become one of my favorites. It’s super simple, and takes way less time, too. So what’s not to love?

This is a 100% natural plant seed oil, which has been formulated with super rejuvenating boab, rosehop, macadamia, and wheatgerm. 100% natural, and 60% of the ingredients come from organic farming, as certified by Eocert, the industry standard, which is all pretty amazing.

It says it’s an all-over oil for face, body, hair, and hands, but I’ve only been using this as a body oil. I think on my face it would look too shiny, and I’m not really into that. As a body oil, however, it gives my skin a radiant glow and I think it’s just great.

The pump container is a bit confusing, but maybe that’s it’s just me.  It looks like you would want to pump into your hands, but it’s actually more of a spray top — took me a while to get it right, but a quick spritz all over the body and then a follow up rub down is the way I’ve found where it works best. Oh hello.

It absorbs quickly, and while my skin does look glowy, it doesn’t really leave behind a skin feel once it’s been absorbed.
