Face oils should be an essential part of your skincare products if you have dry skin like me. As we get older and cross the 30s and 40s, our skin requires extra moisture to maintain its hydration balance. Oils are the ideal antidote to dry, flaky skin and rough, rosy cheeks — and they can be much more effective at moisturizing than your standard lotions and creams. Today I’m going to talk about a face oil that I have been using for more than one month. This is Rovectin Barrier Repair Face Oil, from the Korean clean beauty brand Rovectin. So let me get into the details…
What The Product Claims
Rovectin Barrier Repair Face Oil is designed with gentle botanical that nourishes the skin, including neroli oil, antioxidant Vitamin E, and plum seed extract. This face oil absorbs quickly to hydrate, restore, and repair dull and damaged skin to uncover a more youthful and glowing complexion. It can be used alone or mixed with other products in your skincare routine, including moisturizers and foundation.
Hypoallergenic, toxin-free, and cruelty-free, 100% free from parabens, artificial colorants, artificial fragrances, mineral oil, and steroids.

How To Use
Dispense 2-3 drops of oil on your palms, then gently pat on oil on your face with hands cupped, using the warmth of your palms to help your skin absorb the oil. You may also use a dropper to distribute oil on your face and gently pat to absorb.

My Experience With The Barrier Repair Face Oil
Rovectin Skin Essential Barrier Repair Face Oil comes in white outer packaging with all important information regarding the oil. Inside the box, you get the oil in a lovely transparent glass bottle with a screw-top dropper dispenser. A bent tip helps it to be drip-free and easy to use.
Smell & Consistency
It has a light and natural scent that is unnoticeable, so it will not bother sensitive noses. This is a fragrance-free product. The oil itself is pale pastel yellow in colour and has a light consistency surely thicker than water but not as thick as some other oil. It reminds me the Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate while applying it on my face.
The oil sinks into the skin quickly. Usually, oils take a few minutes to melt into the skin but it disappears effortlessly leaving my skin soft and nourished. I apply 2-3 drops after cleansing my face by patting it into my skin at night. Sometimes I mix 2 drops of oil into my night cream and apply it all over my face. The best thing with this oil is that it never feels sticky like other oil so you can apply it anytime. It is so well absorbed that I’m able to apply it both during day and night without feeling any heaviness or stickiness.
My skin started looking smoother, plump and nourished after a few weeks. It felt softer to touch. If you check its ingredient list you will find that two of its key ingredients are neroli and sunflower seed oils, both contain nourishing and restorative ingredients like squalane and tocopherol (vitamin E) so it’s not surprising that it’s effective in giving hydration. After more than one month of use, I am really obsessed with this oil, my skin’s texture has improved, it feels plumper, even and awake. I also use it before applying makeup. Just 2 drops of oil give a smooth base to my foundation and concealer. The good amounts of vitamin E in the formula, a potent antioxidant that protects my skin from free radical damage which is caused by environmental stress. I am really impressed with this oil and its effect on my skin.
Is The Oil True On Its Claim?
No doubt, it’s almost 100% true on its claim. It really gets absorbed into the skin quickly leaving it soft, hydrated and nourished. Its great hydrating capability would surely complement those with drier skin types and its lightness and quick absorption would also allure to oily skin beauties.
Who Do I Recommend The Repair Face Oil To?
This is a great oil blend that works equally well for all skin types. Though I will suggest a patch test for sensitive skin, I guess it will be perfect for all skin types. It depends on you in which way you use it on your skin.
Would I Repurchase This Oil?
Definitely yes, it is an amazing oil that does as it claims. It has become a key product in my night time skincare routine.
