Jane Scrivner skincare is a UK skincare brand formulated by the lady Jane Scrivner herself. She prides herself on formulating skincare products with raw materials that have a great track record, ingredients that are pure, natural, preferably organic and really works. I’d used their “OO” cream from this brand (full reviewhere) and loved it so I was definitely looking forward to using this product as well.
The ingredients list is as below for your reference.

How does the Jane Scrivner Affirmative Facial Oil fare?
Jane Scrivner’s Affirmative Facial Oil is a blend of 7 emollient core oils; apricot kernel, jojoba, moringa, red raspberry, acai, pomegranate and sea buckthorn with cytophylactic, organic red mandarin, Italian lemon and neroli premium essential oils. It is touted to promote the growth of skin cells and tissue, mobilise and increase collagen production and enhance skin elasticity. The oil is housed in a beautiful rose-gold pump bottle and you only need to use a single pump each time.
You just need to warm up the oil in your palms and gently press it into your skin. I usually use this oil in the evenings due to the inclusion of citrus oils (I normally do not like using citrus oils in the day time due to the increased potential of sunburn). I was surprised to find that this oil is actually much lighter than the other oils in my skincare arsenal. Therefore I like using this oil during the week before I get my period as my skin would typically be more oily and problematic. In fact, even though this is an oil product, I find this oil to be mildly purifying and somehow manages to control my sebum production. I also like that this product has an interesting fruity smell without being overwhelmingly floral. All in all, this is a product that I would recommend for people who are beginners in using oils in their skincare routine and do not want heavy occlusive oils.
