Badger Unscented Face Care Set Review

If you've been reading my blog for a while, you may already know that Badger is my favorite brand of all time!  They're a Leaping Bunny-certified cruelty-free company that is awesome for so many reasons.  Here are just a few: aside from being Leaping Bunny certified, they also use USDA organic and fair trade ingredients, are a B Corporation (more on that here), and they just overall seem like an amazing place to work.  I promise I am not just kissing butt here--this is a 100% not sponsored post, I just really love Badger!

Disclaimer: These products were purchased by See, Shop, Love!

All fangirling aside, I wanted to share with you my experiences with one of Badger's newer products: the Unscented Face Oil and Face Cleansing Oil.  I purchased these as part of a set for $25.99 because it was cheaper than buying them both individually (the Face Oil is $14.99 and the Cleansing Oil is $15.99).  Plus, every order over $25 on the Badger website ships for free and comes with an extra gift--this time it was a mini Badger Balm (pictured above, bottom center).

I had been wanting to try a cleansing oil for a while, and when Badger came out with their line of face care sets I knew I had to get them.  I decided on the Unscented line because they're made for sensitive skin.  My skin is oily but also sensitive to harsh products.  They also have Argan (all skin types), Seabuckthorn (normal to dry skin), and Damascus Rose (delicate/dry skin) oil sets.

The Face Oil is 1 fl oz and the Cleansing Oil is 2 fl oz.  All of Badger's face care oils are clinically tested to be non-comedogenic (they won't clog your pores) and hypoallergenic.  The Unscented set really is unscented, so you don't have to worry about any kind of fragrances irritating your skin.

I love that Badger uses minimal ingredients in all of their products, and that the ingredients they do use are natural and pure.  They are a company that truly is organic and natural!  The ingredients for those of these oils are similar, but the Face Oil has a few more oils in it than the Cleansing Oil.

I've been using these for two weeks and have been really enjoying them!  The instructions state to apply the Cleansing Oil on dry skin and massage it in using a circular motion.  I use two pumps and it's more than enough to cover my entire face.  Massaging it in is very calming, too; it's like having a mini facial every morning and night!  After applying it to the skin, you use a warm washcloth to steam open pores and gently remove oil, dirt, and makeup.  This really works well at removing my makeup, which was something I was a little bit concerned about.  I didn't need to worry, though, because it easily took off all of my foundation and everything else.

After removing the Cleansing Oil, it's time for the Face Oil to do work its magic.  I've used face oil moisturizers before so I was more familiar with how to apply this than I was with the Cleansing Oil.  Basically, dispense a pump or two (I use only one) onto the palms and then apply it onto the skin.  I like to rub it between my palms and then roll my palms over my face to apply it.  Definitely apply this while your skin is just a little bit damp still--if you apply it on completely dry skin it'll be harder to spread it evenly.  Plus, you should apply moisturizers on damp skin anyway to help with absorption.

Bottom Line: I am loving the Unscented Face Care Set and am so glad I purchased it!  Although it may sound counterintuitive to use face oils on oily skin, they actually work really well to balance sebum production because "like dissolves like."  I will have to keep using these for a longer period of time to see if they reduce the oil on my skin, but so far I'm pleased with their performance.  My skin feels clean and hydrated after use, and I have peace of mind knowing that I'm using a truly natural, cruelty-free product from an amazing company!
