Carla Oates Dream Repair Serum

Carla Oates has dedicated 10 years of research into the benefits of natural and fermented ingredients for the skin's appearance. They're good for the inside. so would be a positive thing to apply to the skin, too. This led to her release of Carla Oates Beauty.

The Dream Repair Serum is a product I bought from TVSN. I won't list the 15 oils and 3 botanical extracts, but they are expertly formulated to leave your skin feeling soft, supple and hydrated. It provides the skin with a high level of antioxidants to rejuvenate the skin during sleep. Certainly sounded good to me!

Typical of an oil treatment serum, the product comes in a bottle with dropper, my preferred dispensing method. The bottle contains 25ml of product.

The consistency of this golden oil is well, of oil. Similar to most other facial oils that I have used in the past, but I find that this one, once smoothed over the face and neck, seems to absorb rather quickly. 

From experience, I just apply a few drops to face and neck, and any remaining gets applied to my often neglected hands. 

It has a rather fresh scent, with a lovely citrus note.

As much as I love rosehip oil, I really appreciate that Carla Oates' oil has been crafted with so many more ingredients that are beneficial for my skin. I found it wonderful during the winter months, when my skin is drier, but it is not too much for my skin as the weather warms up. 

I apply at night, it's the last step of my skincare routine, and know that I will wake up with hydrated skin. It also helps to reduce the redness of any break-outs that I have been "lucky" to get, healing them faster. I also apply around my delicate eye area without any adverse reactions, which offers hydration to one of the driest parts of my face.

Do you like using an oil on your skin? What's your fave? :)

  2. My favourite oil is this Carla Oates one. I love her Glow powder too. I too buy them from TVSN. I enjoy watching and have always found them to be reliable. I adore this serum especially, I have such dry skin and this helps immediately. I can even use it in the daytime because it absorbs so quickly. It seems to help my foundation application.
