Borghese Hydrology ReIlluminate Facial Oil Review

Borghese says their Hydrology ReIlluminate Facial Oil "delivers high-impact hydration and helps skin look and fell it's pure and radiant best." This facial oil contains 30ml (1 fl oz) and retails for $30 - it seems as though the ReIlluminate Oil may be exclusive to Kohl's. Borghese is not cruelty free. This oil is made in the USA.

The Hydrology ReIlluminate Facial Oil comes in a clear glass bottle with a blue dropper cap. The product name and Borghese logo are printed on the front of the bottle in blue lettering. I'm actually really pleased with this oil's packaging, its both pretty and functional. If you're looking for more product information or an ingredient list, you'll need to check out the exterior packaging, which is absolutely covered in information about the ReIlluminate Oil, and the Hydrology line as a whole. All packaging is recyclable.

The Hydrology ReIlluminate Facial Oil is a thin, crystal clear oil; Borghese recommends warming 4-5 drops of this oil between your palms and pressing it into the skin. This mid-weight oil takes it's time sinking in, leaving my skin a bit greasy for about twenty minutes after application - making this night time only product for me. The ReIlluminate Oil is very hydrating and softening without overwhelming my combination skin - I don't believe that this oil has caused any breakouts or clogged pore in approximately six weeks of use. While I do like the Hydrology ReIlluminate Facial Oil on it's own, I prefer to add 2-3 drops into First Aid Beauty's Ultra Repair Cream - it thins out the rich cream and makes it easier to spread, while adding strong shot of extra hydration (not that the Ultra Repair Cream isn't already super moisturizing!).

Borghese did a hell of a job formulating their Hydrology ReIlluminate Facial Oil, I'm seriously impressed by the excellent ingredient list! This facial oil has a standard emollient base packed with fantastic, non irritating natural extracts and oils. A glance at this product's ingredient list will show moisturizing sesame, macadamia and sweet almond oils, blended with antioxidant rich grape seed oil, safflower seed oil, arginine, and algae extra, topped off with everyone's favorite - water loving, skin plumping hyaluronic acid. The inclusion of purifying sea salt and silt doesn't hurt either. This oil does contain a sunscreen-like fragrance, which is very close to the end of the ingredient list, but still worth pointing out.

The Hydrology ReIlluminate Facial Oil is an excellent moisturizing oil for dry to combo skin. This oil has a great ingredient list with very few problematic ingredients, but it is loaded with beneficial ones that really help to hydrate and nourish the skin. I don't have any true complaints about this product; I wish it was formulated without fragrance, and it would be nice if it absorbed a little faster, but neither issue effects the product's performance. If you're thinking about adding a reasonably priced facial oil into your routine, consider Borghese Hydrology ReIlluminate Facial Oil!
