I haven’t revisited my Aveda Skin Care Series in awhile so I’ll pick back up with a fairly new product, the tulāsara radiant oleation oil. Using the oil with the facial dry brush you form the Radiant Awakening Ritual. This ritual is supposed to be performed every morning before you put makeup on, and it takes approximately 7 minutes. Now that can be tricky for some people. I know that I don’t have an extra 7 minutes every morning to spend on my skin care routine, but IF you do, it’s worth it. If you can’t perform the ritual every morning, try for at least twice a week. Some is better than none.
The goal of this ritual is to brighten up your complexion and to exfoliate off dead skin cells to help with cellular turnover, leaving your skin smooth and glowing.
Step 1: Begin by cleansing and then drying your skin. You want to make sure your skin is clean when you begin the exfoliation process.
Step 2: Using the dry facial brush, exfoliate by moving the brush in small circular motions over your face and neck. This should take about 1 minute.
Step 3: Massage in the tulāsara oleation oil with your fingertips, moving in small circles, really working it into the skin. This should also take about 1 minute.
Step 4: Let the oil soak into your skin for the next 4 minutes. Then cleanse your skin to remove the oil, and continue with your normal skin care routine.
Is It Worth the Money?
So, the starter kit with the facial brush and the radiant oleation oil retails for $89. That should last you at least 3-4 months, because a little bit goes a long way with this stuff. With that being said, I think it is worth the money. Think of it this way, it’s just like as if you were buying a smaller and cheaper product every month around the price of $22-30. Instead of having to buy this monthly, it will last you around 4 months. If you take good care of your brush and wash it bi-weekly with a gentle soap, then you shouldn’t have to buy another brush for a long time.
I have used the oleation oil and brush on my clients at Ihloff Salon and Day Spa, and I can honestly say I’ve been able to see a noticeable difference in their skin after performing this ritual on them. It sloughs off the dull skin and leaves your skin looking bright. It’s 100% naturally derived oil, and it’s non-acnegenic so it’s good for all skin types! If you’d like to try it out before you buy it, come see me for a facial. I can show you your skin before I use it, so you can see for yourself the benefits it brings.
