It’s no longer a secret that facial oil is the staple in my routine. But, since I’m running out of ideas for new interesting facial oil to try, when I scrolling through this online shopping apps, I found out that Sensatia Botanicals, one of pioneer of local brand skin care was having a promo. And boy oh boy, it turned out that they also have their own facial oil! So, into the shopping basket it was!
Honestly speaking, I’m really excited to try this product, albeit a little bit skeptical, because if a local brand produced a good quality facial oil, I don’t even have to think to repurchase any western brand facial oil! Lol, maybe my Indonesian reader would asked why you just showing interest with their facial oil while they also have toner, mist, mask, and other skin care products for the longest time before? Well, it’s simply because the facial oil speaks the most for me. That and the fact that not all local skin care brand is brave enough to launch their own facial oil because most of Indonesian still have this stubborn thoughts that facial oil would make your skin even oilier (hint: they are not!).

First of all, if you are into vegan skin care brand that didn’t tested their products to animal and also paraben free, phthalate free, pregnancy safe, breastfeed safe, palm oil free, silicone free, sulfate free, and even Halal, then Sensatia Botanicals is your go-to skin care brand. It’s nice to know that this Bali based skin care brand also comes with pretty affordable price considering a lot of vegan skin care brand usually comes with pretty high price.
Now, back to the actual Sensatia Botanicals Dry to Normal Facial Hydrate Neroli Blossom review. The texture is pretty much similar to other facial oil that I’ve ever encountered before. It’s not way too thick and not too thin either. It’s just right. And it’s easily absorbed into the skin. If you already used to natural scented skin care, you wouldn’t get bothered with this oil’s scent because in my opinion, Trilogy oil’s scent is far more bothersome and noticeable, lol.
The overall result after I finished the whole bottle (yes, I finished it!) was a well-hydrated and plump skin. Well, I have to admit that it’s not only because of the Sensatia Botanicals Dry to Normal Facial Hydrate Neroli Blossom, my other skin care also have a contribution to make my skin even better. But, I did notice that whenever I use this oil, it definitely help to make other products that I put underneath to absorbed even better, resulting a glowing, well hydrated skin if you use it every single day.
Did I find it enough for my dry skin? In Indonesian humid weather, sure it does! However, if I use it in winter or other drier weather, perhaps I would reach for richer moisturizer and put it on top of it. Will I repurchase it? Of course! It’s a no brainer because it’s affordable, easy to find, and really works on my skin! In fact, Sensatia Botanicals also have 3 other type of facial oil. Therefore, expect me to review them in the future! 😉
