I have recently discovered a huge gaping hole in my very large arsenal of skincare products - I own absolutely no facial oils! How could I completely miss a product category like that? Not OK!
To remedy this oversight, I added Urang Vitamin Oil Serum to my bathroom shelf. Urang stands for Ultimate Radiant + Natural Glow. It’s a new to me brand of Korean skincare founded by an aromatherapist Jina Lee. Urang is cruelty free and uses natural and organic ingredients to make effective yet safe products. The serum is sold on eBay and Amazon.
The blend of antioxidant and vitamin rich oils in this product targets the visible signs of aging. The first two ingredients - jojoba and rosa moschata (rosehip) oils - deliver vitamins A, D, E, and Beta carotene deep into the skin to nourish it and smooth out lines. The manufacturer also promises improved skin tone and radiance for all skin types.
The serum is 97.6% organic and Environmental Working Group (EWG) certified as safe. The consistency is that of oil, despite the “serum” in the name. A couple of drops is sufficient for the entire face and neck.
How to use:
Apply to a clean face after toner
Gently pat in with fingertips
Follow with your favorite cream
As an alternative, you can mix the serum with your toner or add a drop into your cream.
Instant love. I have combination skin with an oily t-zone and dry cheeks. I’m not sure if it’s due to summer and indoor air conditioning or something else, but my skin has been getting dehydrated very quickly lately. And two unpleasant things happen when my skin is dehydrated - a few pesky fine lines pop up on my forehead, and my nose and t zone start to produce tons of oil. Yikes.
I’ve been using the Urang serum a bit differently than the official instructions. I cleanse, tone, and then apply a few drops of the oil. And that’s it. I don’t follow with any other creams. The serum absorbs well but still leaves my skin feeling silky and soft - I do prefer to only use it at night. The smell is divine. I mostly sense the lavender oil, but some hints of the other oils as well. I love it.
In the morning, I wake up with a fresh, plumped face - no oily or greasy feeling (and no forehead lines!). The t-zone remembers how to behave itself and stops being an greasy pit. Even if I just rinse with water and not cleanse in the morning, my whole day routine applies just fine with no issues. So, for me, this product has been an evening time saver of sorts when I don’t feel like doing the whole 10 steps before bed - just cleanse, tone, and oil. Voila!
People with dry or mature skin might choose to use it both in the morning and in the evening and follow with cream, but for me that gets a bit heavy right now (in the winter it might be perfect). Overall, awesome product, highly recommend!
