“Luxury is more than a label. It’s a statement of exquisite craftsmanship, characterized by an investment of time and an attention to detail.”

When it comes to luxury beauty, many high fashion brands come to mind.

But what if I told you that within this green beauty community exists an understated luxury brand with a history of supplying some of the most recognized brands — think Estée Lauder and Tom Ford — with their oils?

If that’s not enough to perk the ears of even some of the most discerning green beauty converts, then I don’t know what is.

But as the introductory quote illustrates, luxury isn’t about a label; the green beauty community is more interested in ingredients, efficacy and a line’s overall aesthetic.

And that’s why Uma’s Deeply Clarifying Face Oil made it onto the blog — this is a brand you’ll want to watch, and oil you’ll want to consider adding to your collection if you’re oily, acne-prone and on the search for a beautiful oil that will heal your skin.

{Uma sent me a sample of its Deeply Clarifying Face Oil. It costs $125 for a 1-ounce glass dropper bottle.}

Inspired by the traditions of Ayurveda and aromatherapy, Uma Deeply Clarifying Face Oil brings together a powerful blend of warming spices in a base of linoleic acid-rich grapeseed oil to address fussy, blemish-prone skin.

The gentle, lightweight formula balances the skin while healing breakouts, pushing them through their cycle a bit quicker to reveal clearer, happier skin.

Clove essential oil aids this process, with its antimicrobial properties, while tea tree oil further treats and prevents breakouts. Lavender and clary sage soothe redness and irritation while adding a calm, happy effect to the senses.

Here’s the full ingredients list:

Clove Essential Oil, Tea Tree Essential Oil, Juniper Berry Essential Oil, Orange Essential Oil, Lavender Essential Oil, Geranium Essential Oil and Clary Sage Essential Oil in a Grapeseed oil base.

One thing to note: Uma says its products are organic, vegan, and free from synthetic fragrances and emulsifiers, preservatives, parabens, GMOs and mineral oils. However, in the ingredients list above, there’s no mention of organic certification.

I used Uma Deeply Clarifying Face Oil day and night for a month and absolutely loved the way it treated my breakouts and maintained my skin’s moisture.

One of my favorite rituals with this oil involved deep inhalations before applying to my face. First, I would squeeze 3-4 drops of oil into the palm of my hand and gently blend with my other hand.

Next, I’d cup my hands over my nose and breathe in the intoxicating scent, spicy scent (clove lovers, this one’s for you). I would then gently pat the oil into my face, bringing my fingertips to my nose to softly inhale the scent again as I massage this sexy oil into my skin.

Uma Deeply Clarifying Face Oil offers the skin and senses an exotic, delectable treat unlike many of my more floral- and fruit-scented facial oils. If you’re a fan of mouthwatering spices (think May Lindstrom’s line or Kahina’s “Fez” body oil), Uma makes sense as your next move.

With that said, Uma Deeply Clarifying Face Oil is one that I appreciate more in the fall and winter months. The comfort of the spices works will with the cooler temperatures, and my extremely Pitta skin can’t handle too much spice (hello, clove) in the warmer months.

  • Hello Kim, sounds very nice but really overpriced for what it is. Grapeseed oil is one of the cheapest on the market……x

    • I agree that it’s expensive. I think the price may factor in the fact that Uma sources its oils from its own estate in Central India. I like how simple it is, but yes, it’s very pricey. Would love to see smaller sizes available!

  • Sounds amazing! I wonder how it would work on my skin in a hot and humid climate though.

  • I’ve been hearing a lot about Uma recently, and for good reason apparently according to the reviews. I’ll have to keep them on my radar!
