I was tempted to try out British Organic skincare range, Pai, when I heard that the brand is a firm favourite of Natalie Portman and Saoirse Ronan, not to mention many Hollywood makeup artists in the know.
Obsessed with keeping my skin hydrated, I love a facial oil, and I have to give it to them, this one from Pai is absolutely amazing. It promises to promote a silky, even and radiant skin tone as well as improving the appearance of fine lines, scars, stretch marks and sun damage.
As you can see, it’s bright orange, which for me is a brilliant sign because natural products that are bright in colour always convince me of their potency…. “The Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil is unique in using concentrated fruit hip oil, with twice the regenerative sterols and five times the caretonoids of seed oil.”
I took this little bottle on my holiday, and although I am always VERY careful in the sun, I do find hot environments in general tend to dehydrate my already dry skin. This Pai Oil was the perfect remedy and my thirsty skin drank it up quickly day and night.
I think that it’s meant for use at night only, but I’m no coward when it comes to oil and am more than happy to use a drop or 2 during the day – I find this creates a lovely smooth base for makeup. It may be too much for someone with oilier skin, but in all fairness, I do believe that our skins understand oils better than we think (it produces it itself after all) so I would definitely encourage you to experiment with this.
Also, in other wrinkle fighting news, I have just started trialling a home fraxel laser system which leaves my skin my skin temporarily red and swollen. The Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil is instantly soothing and works quickly to return my skin to a tranquil state.
I really can’t say enough good things about this oil. It definitely softens fine lines and minimises my pores. It’s hard to comment about its long term anti-ageing effects but I will certainly be including it in my skincare regime in the future.
