snowberry soothing facial massage oil

I feel like we keep hearing about “facial yoga” everywhere.

When things like that start to make waves online, I tend to ignore them and go about my beauty routine.

Now that I’ve received a “facial massage oil” from Snowberry, I’m still a bit perplexed by all this working out and pampering that my face apparently needs, but that doesn’t take away from how much I’ve enjoyed playing with this cool blue oil.

{Snowberry sent me a sample of its Soothing Facial Massage oil, which retails for $32.}

Instead of reserving a special time to use this oil during a planned facial massage, I’ve been giving myself about three pumps of Snowberry Soothing Facial Massage Oil at night during regular oil cleansing times.

It’s been a heavenly treatment pre-May Lindstrom Blue Cocoon, and the oil has more of a slip than typical oils such as jojoba or argan. It’s almost the same slippery consistency as castor oil without feeling so heavy or looking so shiny.

The scent is fresh and clean thanks to chamomile and rosehip, and no strong aromas linger after you pat off the excess oil post-cleanse.

So, I haven’t really used this as a “facial massage oil” per the usage instructions, but as another lovely oil blend for cleansing.

Snowberry recommends using it as a moisturizer throughout the day for dry and sensitive skin, too, which explains why it feels a bit too heavy for my oily skin.

Snowberry’s Soothing Facial Massage Oil is housed in a plastic container, which, for a product that seems to be a luxury (a separate oil just for facial massage, really?), feels a bit blah. The white frosted container dulls the brilliance of the blue oil inside!

That said, I’m sure it keeps the cost low compared to glass, and I can see the pretty blue oil just fine once I pump it onto my hand (though you probably can’t really tell in the photo above).

Here’s what’s inside Snowberry’s Soothing Facial Massage Oil:

Macadamia Integrifolia seed oil, Passiflora Incarnata seed oil, Helianthus Annuus (sunflower) seed oil, Plukenetia Volubilis seed oil, Rosa Canina fruit extract, Glycine soja (Soybean) oil/ Calendula officinalis flower extract/Tocopherol, DPG Quercus Suber Bark (Cork) extract, Bisabolol, Zingiber officinale (Ginger) root extract, Tocopherol (mixed) & Beta-Sitosterol & Squalene (sunflower), Rosmarinus officinalis leaf extract, Rosa rubginosa (Rosehip) seed oil, Punica Granatum seed extract, Guaiazulene

All in all, Snowberry’s Soothing Facial Massage Oil is lovely, but not a repurchase for me. I’ll finish it out as an oil cleanser — and maybe one day I’ll pencil in time for a proper facial massage after my facial yoga.

  • I’d probably use it as a cleanser as well, because I also have quite oily skin like you do.

    • Yeap! I used it again last night as a cleanser. It’s great for a wintertime oil cleanse! Let me know if you try it :)

    Does this mean we can expect a Blue Cocoon review soon?!

  • Sounds like an interesting product! Have you tried anything else from Snowberry? I have a couple cream samples from them and I just haven’t gotten to trying them yet. Their packaging is always so cute too!

    • I’ve tried a sunscreen before but didn’t like the texture … I think that may be it! Still exploring the brand. The design on the packaging IS quite adorable! :) What creams do you have and do you like them?

      • I have samples of the day cream, sunscreen and the cleanser. I’ve only tried the day cream so far and I didn’t really like the consistency or scent. The packaging designs are just too cute! Maybe the cleanser will be a winner…

    Oooh!! How do you like Blue Cocoon! I’m so curious about it!!

    • I’ll have a full review soon! I like that it’s a balm that melts into your skin as an oil and has a dry finish :)

        Sounds divine!

    I think you hit the nail on the head in terms of use of plastic, they are a New Zealand based brand so can you imagine how much more petrol would be used in transport if all of their products were housed in glass? Glass is so much heavier that even if products are transported by truck from another state the amount of petrol that gets used at least doubles. Also I travel all the time so I appreciate the slim line packaging – my shoulders thank me for not schlepping around heavy glass containers.

    At any rate I love this brand & think it doesn’t get enough love online so I’m happy to see it being featured :-) I haven’t tried a product that I haven’t loved, the eye serum is a must have if you suffer from puffy eyes (as I do – I love my salt!). I also really rate the SPF and the bright defense serum, but my skin is not very oily so I don’t have an issue with this.

    • Very good points indeed! I’m surprised there’s not more love online for Snowberry … we gotta change that! It’s such a cute brand :) And yes, I am a puffy-eyed girl thanks to salt, too. I will look up the eye serum! I tried an SPF but didn’t care for it much because it pilled on me … do you know what I mean? Like little white balls of SPF on my face. Strange thing!

    I have never tried anything from this brand, but the name and the product is very tempting
