I've been using the Water Oil Trio for years. My skin doesn't like anything else.

Why i created this line

Hi, I'm Sonia Roselli.

And I get it. I created this for us, the ones with skin that's, well, a bit moody. Any treatment or exfoliation, and our skin's like, "oh no you didn't!"

Picture this: my skin, going rogue after a micro-needling treatment. Not fun. But, the Barrier Repair Trio was a game-changer. Six weeks of this, and my skin started playing nice again.

The best part? After those six weeks, I switched back to my regular skincare routine with the Healthy Glow Kit, and a jar of Intense Barrier Cream and it was smooth sailing. It's not just skincare - it's a peace treaty with our skin with a believable, youthful glow.

The "best" face oil can vary greatly depending on an individual's skin type, specific concerns, and personal preferences. However, I can provide some information on the potential benefits of the ingredients in Water Oil:

  1. Onsen-Sui (Japanese Spring Water): Japanese spring water is often used for its purity and calming properties.
  2. Squalane (Derived from olives): Squalane is known for its moisturizing properties and is suitable for all skin types. It's non-comedogenic (won't clog pores), helps regulate oil production, and has antioxidant properties that can protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals​.
  3. Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5: This is a peptide that can penetrate deep into the skin and stimulate collagen production, which helps maintain the skin's firmness and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
  4. Sea Buckthorn Oil: Rich in vitamins and antioxidants, Sea Buckthorn Oil can help protect and slow the skin from aging and sun damage, moisturize dry skin, and promote skin elasticity​.
  5. Japanese Camellia Oil: Japanese Camellia Oil is known for its moisturizing, emollient, and antioxidant properties. It can help protect the skin from aging, keep it moisturized, and soothe inflammation.
  6. Argan Oil: Argan oil is beneficial for improving skin elasticity and may help prevent and diminish dark spots thanks to its high antioxidant properties. It's also non-comedogenic​.
  7. Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil: Rice Bran Oil is rich in antioxidants, fatty acids, and vitamin E, which can help hydrate the skin and protect and slow down aging and sun damage.
  8. Avocado Oil: Avocado oil is known for its ability to deeply penetrate skin layers and stimulate collagen production, which makes it a good option for improving skin elasticity and reducing the appearance of aging.
  9. Jojoba Seed Oil: Jojoba oil has a composition similar to that of human sebum, making it a good option for regulating sebum production and reducing oiliness. It's also non-comedogenic, has anti-inflammatory properties, and is rich in antioxidants, making it suitable for all skin types​.
  10. Glycine Soja Oil (Soybean Oil): Soybean oil is rich in vitamin E, a nutrient that can help promote skin health. It's also a good source of antioxidants.
  11. Sesamum Indicum Oil (Sesame Seed Oil): Sesame oil is known for its moisturizing properties and its ability to penetrate deeply into the skin to provide long-lasting results.

Overall, the Water Oil contains a blend of oils with various beneficial serum properties for the skin, such as help prevent transepidermal water loss, which helps your skin feel more hydrated, as well as antioxidant protection, and collagen stimulation. Basically, we're more than just a facial oil.

Like any other skincare product, facial oils do have an expiration date. While they are generally known for their longevity, it's essential to keep track of the expiration date to ensure the product's effectiveness and safety.

Here's what you need to know about the shelf life and expiration of facial oils:

  1. Shelf Life: Facial oils typically have a longer shelf life compared to water-based skincare products. The shelf life can vary depending on the formulation and ingredients used. However, most facial oils, like Water Oil have a shelf life of 6 months to 3 years.
  2. Expiration Date: Facial oil bottles usually have a PAO (Period After Opening) symbol, which indicates how long the product remains usable after you open it. The PAO symbol looks like an open jar with a number and 'M' inside it. For example, '12M' means the product is good for 12 months after opening. Water Oil has a 3 year shelf life unopened and a 1 year shelf life after opening.
  3. Factors Affecting Shelf Life: The longevity of facial oil can be influenced by several factors, including the quality of ingredients, packaging, exposure to air, light, and heat. Natural and organic facial oils may have a shorter shelf life compared to those with synthetic preservatives.
  4. Signs of Expired Facial Oil: Expired facial oil may undergo changes in color, consistency, or scent. It might become cloudy, develop a rancid smell, or separate into layers. If you notice any of these signs, it's best to discard the product.
  5. Proper Storage: To extend the shelf life of your facial oil, it's crucial to store it correctly. Keep it in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and heat sources. Close the bottle tightly after each use to minimize exposure to air.
  6. Patch Test: Regardless of the expiration date, it's essential to perform a patch test before using any facial oil on your skin. This helps ensure compatibility and reduces the risk of adverse reactions.

The likelihood of facial oil like Water Oil causing acne depends on various factors, including individual skin type, sensitivity. If you have severe acne, Water Oil may not be the best thing for you.

While facial oils can be beneficial for many people, certain oils may have a higher comedogenicity, meaning they have a higher tendency to clog pores and potentially lead to acne breakouts. Let's examine the ingredients you provided to assess their comedogenic potential:

  1. Onsen-Sui (Japanese Spring Water): Water itself does not contribute to acne breakouts.
  2. Squalane (Derived from olives): Squalane is a non-comedogenic and lightweight oil that is generally well-tolerated by most skin types. It is unlikely to cause acne breakouts.
  3. Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5: Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 is a peptide and is not an oil. Peptides do not typically contribute to acne formation.
  4. Sea Buckthorn Oil: Sea Buckthorn Oil has a moderate comedogenic rating, which means it has the potential to clog pores in some individuals. If you have acne-prone skin, it may be advisable to patch test the product before applying it to your entire face.
  5. Japanese Camellia Oil: Japanese Camellia Oil is generally considered non-comedogenic and is unlikely to cause acne breakouts.
  6. Argan Oil: Argan Oil has a low comedogenic rating, indicating that it is less likely to clog pores and cause acne. However, individual reactions may vary.
  7. Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil: Rice Bran Oil is considered non-comedogenic, making it a suitable option for most skin types.
  8. Avocado Oil: Avocado Oil has a moderately high comedogenic rating, suggesting it may have the potential to clog pores and contribute to acne in some individuals. Those with acne-prone skin should be cautious when using avocado oil.
  9. Jojoba Seed Oil: Jojoba Seed Oil closely resembles the skin's natural sebum, making it less likely to clog pores and cause acne breakouts. It is generally considered non-comedogenic.
  10. Glycine Soja Oil (Soybean Oil): Soybean Oil has a moderate to high comedogenic rating and may cause acne breakouts, especially in individuals with acne-prone skin.
  11. Sesamum Indicum Oil (Sesame Seed Oil): Sesame Seed Oil has a moderately high comedogenic rating and may potentially contribute to clogged pores and acne breakouts in some individuals.

Yes, facial oil like Water Oil can be beneficial for oily skin when used appropriately.

Although it may seem counterintuitive to use oil on oily skin, certain facial oils can help balance sebum production and improve the overall health of the skin. Let's take a closer look at the ingredients you mentioned and their effects on oily skin:

  1. Onsen-Sui (Japanese Spring Water): Onsen-Sui is known for its hydrating properties, which can be beneficial for all skin types, including oily skin. It helps maintain the skin's moisture balance without adding excess oil.
  2. Squalane (Derived from olives): Squalane is a lightweight oil that closely resembles the skin's natural sebum. It can help regulate oil production and moisturize the skin without clogging pores. It is suitable for oily skin types.
  3. Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5: Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 is a peptide that helps stimulate collagen production, promoting firmness and elasticity in the skin. While not specifically targeted at oily skin, it can provide overall anti-aging benefits.
  4. Sea Buckthorn Oil: Sea Buckthorn Oil is rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and fatty acids. It can help soothe and nourish the skin while promoting a healthy complexion. It is generally safe for oily skin, but it's recommended to use it sparingly due to its richness.
  5. Japanese Camellia Oil: Japanese Camellia Oil is lightweight and non-greasy, making it suitable for oily skin. It helps moisturize and soften the skin without clogging pores. It also contains antioxidants that promote skin health.
  6. Argan Oil: Argan Oil is known for its moisturizing properties and is suitable for various skin types, including oily skin. It helps balance oil production and can reduce the appearance of blemishes.
  7. Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil: Rice Bran Oil is lightweight and absorbs easily into the skin. It can help control excess oil while providing nourishment and antioxidants.
  8. Avocado Oil: Avocado Oil is rich in vitamins and fatty acids, making it beneficial for dry or dehydrated skin. While it may be slightly heavier for oily skin, it can still be used in moderation to provide moisture and nourishment.
  9. Jojoba Seed Oil: Jojoba Seed Oil closely resembles the skin's natural sebum and can help regulate oil production. It is non-comedogenic and suitable for oily skin, providing hydration without a greasy feel.
  10. Glycine Soja Oil (Soybean Oil): Soybean Oil contains essential fatty acids and antioxidants that can benefit the skin. It is generally safe for oily skin but should be used sparingly to avoid potential pore-clogging.
  11. Sesamum Indicum Oil (Sesame Seed Oil): Sesame Seed Oil is lightweight and rich in vitamins and antioxidants. It can help nourish and moisturize the skin without leaving a heavy residue. It is generally suitable for oily skin.

The necessity of facial oil depends on various factors, including your skin type, concerns, and personal preferences.

While we believe that facial oils can offer several benefits, they may not be essential for everyone.

Here are some points to consider when determining the necessity of facial oil in your skincare routine:

  1. Skin Type: Facial oils are particularly beneficial for individuals with dry or dehydrated skin. These oils can help replenish moisture, improve skin texture, and restore a healthy glow. However, if you have oily or acne-prone skin, you might find that certain lightweight facial oils can help balance oil production and provide nourishment without causing breakouts. Combination skin types can also benefit from targeted use of facial oils on drier areas.
  2. Hydration: Facial oils can be an effective addition to your skincare routine for boosting hydration. They create a protective barrier on the skin, preventing moisture loss and maintaining hydration levels. If you struggle with dryness or live in a dry climate, facial oils can be particularly helpful in keeping your skin moisturized and supple.
  3. Skin Concerns: Facial oils often contain beneficial ingredients such as antioxidants, vitamins, and fatty acids that can address specific skin concerns. For example, oils rich in antioxidants can help combat free radical damage and promote a youthful appearance. Certain oils may also have soothing or anti-inflammatory properties, making them suitable for sensitive or irritated skin. If you have specific concerns like signs of aging, uneven skin tone, or redness, incorporating a targeted facial oil may be beneficial.
  4. Personal Preference: Skincare routines are highly individual, and personal preference plays a significant role. Some individuals enjoy the luxurious feel and sensory experience of using facial oils, finding them soothing and comforting. If you find pleasure in using facial oils and they make you feel good about your skincare routine, then they can be considered necessary for your personal satisfaction and well-being.

It's important to note that while facial oils can provide benefits, they are not a substitute for a well-rounded skincare routine that includes cleansing, moisturizing, and sun protection.

Ultimately, whether facial oil is necessary for you is a subjective decision based on your skin's needs, preferences, and desired outcomes. But as an esthetician of 20 year, I personally believe they should be part of an overall healthy skin routine.

Face oil and moisturizer are different, and you need both.

Face oil is like a special kind of oil that nourishes your skin with important nutrients and creates a protective layer to keep (water) moisture in.

Moisturizer, on the other hand, is like a big drink of water for your skin. It hydrates and keeps your skin moisturized.

Face oil can't replace moisturizer because it's not made to provide water to your skin. But together, they work to give your skin what it needs.

Face oils are often rich in essential fatty acids, vitamins, and antioxidants, which provide nourishment to the skin.

These nutrients can help improve the overall health and appearance of the skin.

Moisturization: Face oils are excellent in helping moisturizers to hydrate and soften the skin. Face Oils, like Water Oil, create a protective barrier that locks in moisture, preventing water loss and keeping the skin hydrated for longer periods.

Balance: Certain face oils can help balance the skin's natural oil production. Contrary to what you might think, applying oil to oily skin can actually signal to the skin that it doesn't need to produce as much oil, thus reducing excessive oiliness.

Protection: Some face oils, like Water Oil, can provide protection against environmental stressors and free radicals. They help combat the signs of aging, promote a more youthful appearance, and support the skin's natural defense mechanisms.

Soothing and Calming: Face oils, like Water Oil, with anti-inflammatory properties can help soothe and calm sensitive or irritated skin. They can reduce redness, irritation, and discomfort, promoting a more balanced complexion.
