Badger Damascus Rose Antioxidant Face Oil

I loved the rose oil from dr. Organic but somehow it was no longer sold in my country. Prior to dr. Organic I used neals’ yard remedies rose oil and was allergic to this. This was only rose oil I could find and I decided to take a chance with it. It’s really great . Nice fragrance , easy to apply. Best of all I wake up to fresh radiant well rested skin .. each time I use it. Really love it and am on my second bottle . I still prefer dr. Organic but this is great too .

I have a few if their products. Bought the body oil first because i randomly saw it in a store close to my house. I currently have hair oil, body oil, face oil, face spf, face cream This oil is very rich, smells great. Not sure how well it moisturizes however my t-zone has improved since i started using it. Bought one for my mom, she loves it even more than me. I also love the smell of the body oil and the hair oil so much i’m afraid to use them so that i don’t finish them too quickly ( :)) since they are pricey. As far as oils go I def recommend this one. Just take a look at the ingredients and you’ll know these guys are legit and are selling an excelent product.

Badger Sport Unscented Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 35

This sunscreen is an instant fave for me. It's ocean safe, non-nano, biodegradable, cruelty free, and with one of the highest ratings of zinc oxide I've seen (22.5%). I was really worried when I first put it on because it is WHITE. However, I found that using small portions and slowly covering my face and neck by patting it in worked pretty well. I recently started combining this with other things to help its spreadablitiy. I still use the same amount of sunscreen, however I combine with aloe vera gel (and sometimes other face treatments, like rose hip oil and hyaluronic acid), rub it together in my hands, and then spread it over my face. This seems to really help speed up the process of putting it on, and helps the white cast to fade a bit. I do get a bit of build-up in some of the fine lines under my eyes, but if I pat them, they go away. The smell kind of reminds me of crayons, but it's still a light smell and not really noticeable once it's on the face. I gave the packaging good marks because I think it just does exactly what it needs to do with no fuss or trying to be clever. It works. It could maybe be sleeker packaging, but I don't really mind it. Besides, the badger is cute. I recently switched to this from Drunk Elephant spf because I needed something water resistant as I'm moving to a more humid climate soon, but also just from sweating at work. I was out marshaling aircraft yesterday, with no hat and the sun on my face the entire time for many hours. I thought I must have tanned or been burnt. However, I did neither. The sunscreen really stood up (even though I really should have been reapplying it). Badger is also half the cost of Drunk Elephant, with more zinc and a better spf rating (and cruelty free, ocean safe and all those other things I mentioned). It may not feel as lux as Drunk Elephant, but I think it's an overall better product that will do more for me in the long run.
