I regret to inform you that the face oil from True Botanical is worth the price of $110

Back then (the 90s), oils were persona non grata in most of our skincare routines. “Oil-free” products were the benchmark and our powdery faces were as matte as the Sahara. A little shine can be a welcome addition to a pretty face these days, and almost every major brand has a face oil on their list.

That said, not all oils are created equally. But that’s where I come in. And I regret to inform you that True Botanicals Pure Radiance Oil is worth every penny.

In this case, having an undeserved expensive taste can sometimes be useful. After years of wasting money on premium products, I know which are worth the investment and which are definitely not. (Sorry, La Mer! We’re just not meant to be.) Each month, I’ll share must-have premium products and must-have items, from skincare to home decor, fitness, fashionable and beyond. Might as well put my expensive habits to good use.

For years, I’ve made it my mission to find the holy grail of face oils: a truly hydrating, anti-aging face oil that doesn’t cause breakouts. It’s no easy task, but True Botanicals has created a remarkable oil that’s so effective, you might even be able to cut a few extra steps out of your skincare routine. It’s no wonder that famous celebrities like Laura Dern, Lizzo, Brooke Shields, Olivia Wilde and January Jones are big fans of the brand in general, and this oil in particular.

Made with a whopping 27 plant actives like nutrient-dense and potent Calendula Oils, Cucumber Seed Oil, Organic Hemp and Jojoba Seed Oils, and Fresh Ginger Root Oil, it is a hydrating, hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic dream.

Based on a 45-day independent scientific clinical study commissioned by the brand (a randomized, comparative, double-blind trial), its effectiveness has been clinically proven, and my own skin can attest to this. In the year that I’ve been using it, I’ve gone from daily makeup to being confident enough to top this oil with sunscreen and get out.

True Botanicals Pure Radiance oils are available in three formulations so you can find the one that best suits your specific skin needs: Renew, Clear and Calm. Calm is ideal for red and rosacea-prone skin, Clear is a dream for acne-prone skin, and Renew is specially formulated to target fine lines, wrinkles, and dullness. All three formulations have a luxurious feel, with a subtle floral scent that won’t overpower your senses or have negative interactions with other active ingredients, such as retinol.

I admit I was initially put off by the $110 price tag, but quickly came to see it as a valuable investment in my skin health. All you need is 3-4 drops per application, so a single bottle can stretch for months at a time. True Botanicals also offers a subscription and savings option that can be canceled at any time and saves you 15% with every order.

If you’ve been hesitant to dip your toes in the oily waters, let True Botanicals gently help you in. Just get ready for the compliments to start rolling in. Can’t quite drop the $110 on a single product? I got you! I’ve included a few other oils that are effective and fun to stock up on while you’re saving up for your splurges. Great skin shouldn’t wait.
