I have Jane Scrivner OO (Over Oil) Cream today, I have been using this for a little while as my friend Nicola1847 (on Instagram) very kindly sent me a very generous sample.
OO Cream is different to many moisturisers I’ve tried before, it is a slightly thicker texture but when you rub it in your hands and apply it to your skin it becomes much finer and sinks in so easily. It contains colloidal oatmeal, Argan Oil, aloe Gel and Vitamin E, to lock in the previous layers of Skincare whether that includes oils or not (I’ve used it both ways) but I love using it in my evening routine as a night cream over facial oil.
Ingredients are: English spring water aqua, oat kernel extract avena sativa (o), aloe vera aloe barbadensis, sun flower helianthus annus (o), shea butter butyrospermum parkii (o), cetearyl alcohol (emollient from coconut)
argan argania spinosa (o), rose hip extract rosa canina (o), white birch betula pendula, glyceryl stearate (Coconut origin emulsifier), calendula calendula officinalis, phenylethyl alcohol natural (ecocert preservative), coco glucosides (coconut and fruit sugar thickening agent) eye bright (euphrasia officinalis), orange citrus aurantium (o), palmarosa cymbopogon martini, rose geranium pelargonium graveolens (o), tocopherol vitamin e, rose absolute rosa centefolia, vanilla vanilla plantifolia, benzoin styrax benzoin, sodium phytate (salt form of the corn derived phytic acid), sodium hydroxide, (alkaliser made by leaching ashes to maintain PH balance of materials) benzyl alcohol (plant derived preservative), *citral *euganol *geraniol *citronellol *farnesol *linalool *limonene *benzyl benzoate *benzyl cinnamate. *naturally occurring components of essential oils.
The fragrance is heavenly, Neroli, Palmarosa, Rose Geranium, Rose Absolute and Vanilla makes for a hypnotic and decadent scent. I adore it, and the best thing about OO Cream is that it lives up to its promises but while leaving your skin matte!
Please forgive scary morning face, this was the next morning after using Intense Oil and OO Cream. My skin is usually a complete greaseball in the mornings regardless of what I use, I was so impressed to see that amazing glow but not a greasy hot mess. I have also used this during the day and it has the same effect, radiant skin with no excess ugly shine.
OO Cream is also fabulous value, it’s £39.00 for a whopping 100ml. You need so very little you would get at least 6 months out of it and that would be using it twice a day. Hydra Floral from Decleor that I love is £41.00 for 50ml so I am sure you can appreciate the value there.
I would like to mention customer service, which is also brilliant. Jane is very active on Instagram, always answering questions and giving advice, nothing is too much trouble. She isn’t pushy at all, you can really tell she loves her job and wants people to get the best out of the products. I love supporting independent companies that show they care for their customers, the personal touch makes me feel so much more special.

Till next time,
