There are so many amazing natural face and body oils and elixirs out there now, but one of my new brands USPA has all bases covered, so I've put together a guide to all of their wonder oils, serums and elixirs.
Natural face and body oils are always some of my most reached-for products because they can help with everything from acne to ageing. Specialising in natural oil blends, the Uspa range is packed with all kinds of oils to suit all skin types and concerns. All of their oils are 100% Australian made and the brand was founded in Melbourne in 1995, relying on naturally active botanical ingredients to deliver effective toxin-free skin care. The products are all developed and trialled in Uspa's own flagship day spa to ensure they really do work, and the ingredients are sourced from the best Australia has to offer.
Uspa natural facial oils
Uspa Age Defying Elixir
If visible signs of ageing are your concern, try the Uspa Age Defying Elixir. Rejuvenating and replenishing, this facial elixir may help to restore moisture to mature and sun-damaged skin, repair damaged tissue, and encourage cell regeneration thanks to Camellia, Rosehip and Evening Primrose Oils. Antioxidant rich, this nourishing oil also contains Rose, Sandalwood and Clary Sage Essential Oils for a light floral aroma. Use twice daily, applying a few drops to freshly cleansed skin, or you can add to your moisturiser for a boost of hydration.
Uspa Desensitising Elixir
For those suffering from sensitive skin conditions such as rosacea, or suffering with mild forms of dermatitis or eczema, I recommend the Uspa Desensitising Elixir, designed to stabilise skin and reduce discomfort. German Chamomile, Lavender Oils, along with Jojoba Oil and Borage Seed Oil may help to reduce inflammation, calm irritation, and restore moisture to dry, damaged and irritated skin.
Uspa Eye Contour Elixir
I love the Uspa Eye Contour Elixir for treating those pesky dark circles as it combines skin plumping Rosehip, Evening Primrose and Borage Seed oils which may help prevent moisture loss around the delicate eye area, de-puff, reverse the visible signs of ageing and protect the skin from future damage. Ideal for all skin types, it has a soothing aroma from Fennel, Rose, Lavender and Bergamot and can be gently massaged into the under-eye area to help smooth.
Uspa Hydramax Elixir
The Uspa Hydramax Elixir is a great option for very dry and dehydrated skin thanks to its blend of Rosehip, Avocado and Calendula Oils. These ingredients are rich in Vitamins A and C, antioxidants, proteins and anti-inflammatories, which may help regenerate damaged tissue, deliver intense moisture to the skin and offer protection from free radical damage. This deeply nourishing elixir has a fresh floral aroma from Jasmine, Rose and Rose Geranium, and can be used both morning and night.
Uspa Purifying Elixir
It's a common misconception that oily and acne prone skin types can't benefit from facial oils. The Uspa Purifying Elixir has been specially formulated for congested and acne-prone skin, containing Juniper Berry Oil which has astringent and antiseptic properties to help cleanse and detoxify pores, plus Sweet Almond, Rosehip and Carrot Seed Oils to calm and soften the skin. Working to help balance oil production, this purifying blend also contains Bergamot, Lime and Peppermint Essential Oils to refresh and cool the skin.
Uspa natural body oils
Uspa Thermal Treatment Oil Red Pepper
An amazing natural alternative to pain relief treatments like Deep Heat, the Uspa Thermal Treatment Oil Red Pepper is a bathroom cabinet essential. This amazingly potent body oil uses Capsicum Extract and essential oils of Wintergreen, Menthol and Camphor to create both a warming and cooling effect on the skin, which work together and may help ease muscle pain and relieve any tension in the body. Capsaicin extract from Capsicum is also known to help relieve the pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. To use, apply directly to problem areas before or after physical activity, avoiding broken skin or very sensitive areas.
Uspa Nourishing Dry Body Oil Jasmine & Camellia
One of my all-time favourite body moisturisers has to be the Uspa Nourishing Dry Body Oil Jasmine & Camellia. This nourishing oil works for all skin types but is particularly good for dry skin, blending Jojoba Seed, Sweet Almond and Evening Primrose Oils to provide intense moisture to the skin without leaving a sticky or oily residue. It may also helps to relieve irritation, so it works for sensitive skin types too. Jasmine, Geranium, Patchouli and Lavender Essential Oils provide a boost of anti-inflammatory, skin-calming properties to help reduce scars and pigmentation, even out skin tone and leave skin soft and supple. It has the most beautiful floral aroma thanks to the Jasmine and Lavender. Massage into skin after showering or bathing to release the gorgeous scent.
Uspa Revitalising Dry Body Oil Immortelle & Jojoba
For those who prefer a scent-free option, the Uspa Revitalising Dry Body Oil Immortelle & Jojoba is a non-aromatic dry oil which works to improve and reduce the appearance of blemishes. This is thanks to a lineup of vitamin, antioxidant and essential fatty acid-packed ingredients including Jojoba, Camellia, Sunflower and Immortelle Oils, which all work to stimulate the production of new skin cells which may help reduce the appearance of stretch marks, acne scars, surgical scars and old wounds, replacing them with beautiful soft skin. Apply evenly all over the body for nourishing hydration, or treat specific problem spots by massaging into affected areas.
