Product of the week: BaoCare Radiance – natural regeneration for 40+ skin – is a new product on the market that your skin will love this winter!

The Baobab tree provides oil that keeps skin supple and fights ageing

If you’ve heard about the facial oil revolution that’s sweeping the world and being promoted by celebs and beauty experts, but don’t know which one to try, here’s my favourite choice:

BaoCare is a 100% pure and natural skin healing range using the rare baobab oil as its foundation ingredient. I tested BaoCare Radiance – specifically targeting mature 40+ skin.

One quick spray morning and evening smoothes and softens face and neck – gives tired, stressed skin a much-needed glow.

The Baobab tree’s legendary secrets unveiled

Baobab oil is a rich amber-gold oil cold-pressed from the small brown seeds found within the fruit pod of the baobab tree.

The legendary baobab tree can survive harsh, near desert conditions through its ability to conserve water. Unlike most trees, it can regenerate its own damaged bark, much like human skin. And just as the baobab is able to thrive in hostile desert conditions, so baobab oil helps us to weather harsh environmental elements which dry out and damage our skin by keeping skin supple, healthy and ageless.

Gentle, natural ingredients your skin will adore

Baobab oil is very quickly absorbed, deeply moisturises and helps to regenerate new skin cells, while jojoba increases elasticity and softens skin. Pomegranate extract protects against damage from UV light, and promotes collagen synthesis and skin repair.

My skin absorbed it pretty well giving the rich, nourished feel that I enjoy, but if you’re concerned that your face might feel oily under your make-up, use two sprays at night time and allow your skin to absorb it while you sleep. (The lavender fragrance might help insomniaics too…)

And one of my favourite reasons to promote BaoCare products: they’re free from synthetic chemical ingredients, parabens and mineral oils.
