Carrots are making a comeback.

OK, so I don’t know that carrots actually ever went anywhere, but I’m finding that basically every beauty product I try that has carrot seed oil in it is an immediate match for my skin.

And that’s what drew me to Jacq’s Organics Carrot Con Leche Face Serum.

{Jacq’s Organics sent me a sample of its Carrot Con Leche Face Serum. A full size, 2-ounce glass dropper bottle retails for $28.}

Carrot seed oil is rich in beta-carotene as well as vitamins A and E. It helps to heal chapped skin while also balancing the moisture in skin — no greasy overload here!

Carrot seed oil is also said to help remove toxic buildup in the skin and diminish the appearance of scars. It’s no wonder it’s such an appealing oil to those of us with blemished, angry skin!

I sought out Jacq’s Organics Carrot Con Leche Face Serum via the blemished and oily skin section of the shop and can’t tell you how refreshing it was to see something besides tea tree oil in the lineup for problem skin.

(Love ya, tea tree, but come on — can we explore more natural solutions to acne?!)

A further look down the ingredients list revealed a beautiful combination of some of my favorite oils that offer a slew of vitamins and light moisture to the skin.

Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil, Daucus Carota Sativa (Carrot) Seed Oil, Rosa Canina Fruit Oil, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Aloe Barbadensis Extract, Camellia Sinensis (Green tea) Leaf Extract, Cucurbita Pepo (Pumpkin) Seed Oil, Calendula officinalis CO2 extract, Hippophae rhamnoides (Sea Buckthorn Berry) CO2 extract and GMO-Free Vitamin E.

Anytime you can get carrot, camellia, pumpkin AND sea buckthorn into an oil at an incredibly affordable price ($28!) is just mind-blowing and skin/money-saving.

I used Jacq’s Organics Carrot Con Leche Face Serum as my daytime face oil for about three weeks (until my small sample size was finished!) and found myself excited to reach for it every morning.

That’s saying a lot because it’s very difficult to stick to just one oil for several weeks of testing when there’s so many options and you have your old favorites right there begging for attention.

The extremely lightweight texture makes Jacq’s Organics Carrot Con Leche Face Serum a stellar pick for those with very oily skin. On some days, I found myself adding a little extra oil or a light layer of shea over my face to get a bit more moisture (I’m oily but have a few dry spots).

As the weather gets warmer and my skin becomes dewier naturally (read: sweaty and oily mess), I think Jacq’s Organics Carrot Con Leche Face Serum will be a go-to for that subtle touch of moisture.

Besides the almost-perfect weight of Jacq’s Organics Carrot Con Leche Face Serum, I was totally taken with the scent of this oil.

It was extremely subtle and fresh like morning dew. Imagine the smell of a springtime sunrise — that’s this. Dainty, fresh and clean.

After a description like that, I’d be insane NOT to put Jacq’s Organics Carrot Con Leche Face Serum on my repurchase list. With summer just around the corner, this is bound to be my go-to oil for my summer sunrises.

(OK, I’m not awake when the sun comes up, but you get what I mean.)

    Lovely! Definitely a great composition!!!x

    • Let me know if you get a chance to try it :)

  • Sounds great and love the cute bottle :) x

    • Yeah! This was just the sample size — the full size has a branded logo and everything, of course :)

  • Everything about this oil sounds lovely. Plus the name is too cute! I’d be interested in trying this, can’t get enough of light facial oils for daytime use! I recently got into using sea buckthorn oil and it’s amazing! :)

  • Kathryne

    I totally agree- we need more options besides tea tree, and it’s always nice to try new products. I haven’t tried this brand yet, but it looks really great! And a great price too!

    • The price is just incredible! Refreshing to see a good mix of oils and a reasonable price from a beauty startup. Any cool new brands you’re loving lately?

  • shortsmallsweet

    I can’t wait for mine to arrive! Really intrigued by the wonderful carrot seed oil, and yes, tea tree never worked for me too.

    • I can’t wait to hear what you think! Tea tree works for me, but sometimes I build up a resistance to it … have to use it sparingly for it to maintain its power! Also, I mean, I love the smell of it, but sometimes it’s just too much :)

      • Whoa, the same thing happens to me with tea tree! I’m currently on a break from it :)

        • I feel ya! I always keep it stocked, but yeah, gotta use it maybe once a moth. I DO love it for post-plucking or bikini shaves … keeps those bumpies away!

  • This actually sounds fantastic! I think that we may have the same type of skin, so I can see this working really well for me!

    • Let me know if you get a chance to try it! It’s so affordable … love that you can get great quality at a great price :)

      • I will for sure!

        PS. I just got the Osmia Black Clay Facial Soap that you recommended to me a while ago! Fingers crossed that it helps with my acne :)

        • I hope it works for you! I love that stuff. I need to get my review written for it, but yes, it was fantastic for me and I’ve repurchased it!

  • Christine Pallesen

    I’ve been using Jacqs organics products for about 3 months and LOVE everything I’ve tried. I started with the carrot soap and serum, but the real game-changer for my face has been the toner! Feels good to use something without all the filers and garbage in it.

    • I love the carrot con leche toner, too! That entire kit is just fabulous. Glad it’s working so well for you! xoxo

    I’ve been using this for two weeks now after reading this review and I am LOVING it! It absorbs so perfectly and doesn’t leave me oily at all but at the same time my skin feels hydrated all day. My skin has also been super happy and smooth. My pores look smaller and my complexion more even and radiant – I’m crediting this oil and you Kim by proxy for the great recommendation!

    I have a list a mile long of oils I want to try though… I feel so torn. Why screw up a good thing, but at the same time I’m a face oil addict!

    • Yessss! It’s lovely, yes?! And girl, there are so many fabulous oils … it’s so hard to restrain! What’s on your list and what is your skin type? Perhaps I can help you narrow :)

      • Ali

        Thanks Kim! My skin tends to be dry and blemish prone with some post-pimple red marks I’m trying to get rid of.

        My current to-try list is:

        Yuli ME Skin Fuel
        Blissoma Restore Deep Healing Oil Serum
        Cecilia Wong Reviving Black Currant Serum
        La Bella Figura Daily Elements Defense Facial Oil
        Odacite (everything! especially the private collection oils… not that my wallet would like that)
        Camp Dreamcatcher Youth Serum

        • Oooh, Yuli ME Skin Fuel is on my list, too.

          The Blissoma Restore is quite lovely — that’s a great healing serum for acneic skin. On my favorites!

          Cecilia Wong’s serum smells incredible. Haven’t restocked in a long time, but have good memories of it. Just lovely.

          ODACITE EVERYTHING! I think my fave is the “Autumn on the World” serum — loaded with Vitamin C. The little booster serums are great, too. I use the one for pimples.
