Human Nature Sunflower Beauty Oil
Price: P299 (100 ml) | P174.75 (50 ml)
Bought from: Human Nature
You've probably heard it from your moms and grannies that oils in general are compounds that are beneficial for the skin. So here I got myself a Human Nature Sunflower Beauty Oil that's one of the brand's bestseller. It was recommended by a colleague and so then I purchased the largest container available. At first, I was hesitant how I'd use it because I'm not really comfortable using oils given the fact that I have extremely oily skin and the weather we have here in the Philippines just makes things more incompatible. I also get adverse reactions whenever I try to incorporate oils in my routine. Name all the oils notable in skincare and I've probably tried it all but always ended up wasting them or putting them to other uses away from my face.
Still, that doesn't stop me from trying which is why you should let me share with you what I think of this Human Nature Sunflower Beauty Oil and how I use it.
According to the brand, this product is 100% natural, is hypoallergenic and fragrance-free. It's also recommended to people who are targeting dull and dry skin because of its brightening and moisturizing properties. Also rich in nourishing Vitamins A, D and E, this holy grail has earned its place as a well-known and well-loved miracle worker. Aside from that, it's labeled as an oil that has whopping 25 miracles that works wonders from head to toe!

I really love the overall look of the product and I think anyone would agree that the design is very dainty. It also has all the information that you'll be looking for such as the claims, ingredient list, direction for use and expiry date.
It comes in a pump bottle so it is very easy to use though I don't think you can bring it and stock up on bags and luggage without leaking through the pump. You may opt to decanter a few amount on a completely enclosed bottle.
SO HOW I USE IT?
Most of the benefits mentioned above requires long-term use and still depends on the compatibility of your skin to the product. Nonetheless, you can count on this oil to moisturize and hydrate very dry skin anywhere in your body. It's inexpensive so you won't find it very wasteful if you slather a lot on your skin. I sometimes dilute it with other moisturizers when I feel like I need extra hydration for my soles and palms. I would also pump a very small amount on my palms, rub it in and apply to the hair for some shine and it works to provide moisture for a long time. I also mix several pumps on ready-to-use hair spa products for extra nourishment and my hair will look sleeker and softer after the treatment.
When I ran out of makeup remover, I opted for my Human Nature Sunflower Beauty Oil as a makeup remover. It won't remove waterproof makeup with ease but is perfect as a cleanser for light makeups while making your skin look plump and healthy. Do take note to wash your face right away with a facial wash to avoid nasty pimps especially if your skin in not very compatible with oils (like me!). Luckily, it did not clog my pores and I don't think it will because according to a test conducted, it passed the comedogenic scale and doesn't contain pore-clogging properties. You may read the article here. I don't wear foundation nowadays when it's just work I'm going to, but I still use oil cleansers as a first step in removing dust, dirt and oil from my skin especially now that pollution and commute are tough and real.
I think one of the best practices I do with this product is applying it as a calming moisturizer after waxing my armpit. Also, I would at least, twice a week, would pump a generous amount on a cotton ball and cleanse my armpits to remove all traces of dirt and sweat, deodorants and dead skin cells accumulated overtime. You know it's working because you will see traces of dirt on the cotton balls once you swipe it with a little pressure. It lessens odor, at the same time, removes all kinds of impurities that makes skin look dark and dull. Doing this will give you a clearer, softer and smoother underarms!
This product is not named as a beauty oil for nothing. It's a product that you think you don't need but comes very useful when you have it. If you love essential oils so much, it would be best to also include carrier oils like this in your stash to dilute the product into to lessen the concentration and avoid any adverse skin reactions.
With this, I hope it's clear that, yes, I highly recommend this product from Human Nature and will definitely repurchase! Oops, I'm into my third bottle already actually!
