Essential SOS for Dry Skin: Aveda Balancing Infusion Botanical Treatment for Dry Skin

by xin on August 13, 2014

Having battle with dry skin for years, I have tried numerous hydrating products in hope to have a THE ONE for me.

Unfortunately, nothing really has worked for me after second bottle.

Aveda Balancing Infusion Botanical Treatment for Dry Skin

Here’s my current favorite hydrating ‘serum’ – Balancing Infusion – Botanical treatment for dry skin.

My first bottle was given to me by Rinnah, and I loved it! And yes, loved it enough to purchase a second bottle.

It’s housed in a glass bottle with drip. It’s very secure and definitely no leaking from the bottle.

It has strong floral scent, and it smells really ‘potent’.

Aveda Balancing Infusion Botanical Treatment for Dry Skin Instructions

It’s main ingredient is patchouli and ylang ylang. Patchouli essential oil has anti-depressant and anti-septic effects, while ylang ylang has calming and soothing effect, and usually has strong flowery fragrance.

The full ingredient list – as you can see, it’s not an organic nor a ‘natural’ product to boot, but I just wish there wasn’t any artificial perfume in it ­čÖü

Aveda Balancing Infusion Botanical Treatment for Dry Skin  To use

This pure essential oil can’t be used on this own, so you will have to mix it with your moisturizer of facial oil. You only need 1 or 2 drops at most and therefore a little goes a long way.

I usually drip 2 drops into my day┬ámoisturizer to boost the moisture level. My skin is drier during the day to to long air-conditioning exposure in the office. I have tried the moisturizer with and without this essential oil, and it really makes a difference. So far it’s been working really well for me and I am already on my second bottle!

 Price: RM118/10ml

Availability: Aveda counters at 1 Utama, Pavilion or Strawberrynet.com

Overall, I love it for now, and I hope it continues to work for me until I come across another favorite!

Recycling tip: This drip bottle can be easily recycled by just cleaning the oil residue with a piece of rolled tissue. Washing the bottle is not necessary as the oil if you intend to reuse the bottle for other facial oil ­čÖé
