Rich in omega 9, it is an excellent anti-wrinkle and is particularly recommended for dry or sensitive skin. Nourishing, soothing, and even healing, this beauty oil has it all!

To apply, simply gently massage the skin.

It is therefore perfect for the T zone of combination skin, but also to reduce the shiny appearance of oily skin. You can use it in a local application instead of your day cream.
