Ever since life became... this, finding ways to cut my skincare routine down without sacrificing results has become my jam.

Oh, you can tackle hyperpigmentation and moisturize my skin? I'll take it! You're giving me SPF 40 and antioxidants to fight free radicals? Sold! You can shrink blemishes and — well, you get the point.

That's why it only took me about a week of testing to fall in love with Clark's Botanicals' Jasmine Vital Oil, a clean, vegan, cruelty-free oil-serum hybrid that moisturizes, revitalizes, de-puffs, and firms skin.

The fact that this product offers anti-inflammatory benefits means that it's perfect for my morning routine. 'Cause, girl, sometimes when I wake up, I don't know who told my face to look the way she does.

Anyways, this oil contains not one, not two, but three ingredients that tackle all that.

After rinsing my face with water in the a.m., I mix one to two drops of the oil with my beloved vitamin C serum and gently massage it into my face. I usually spend a few minutes doing this because it feels so good and I deserve after working as hard as I did to get out of bed.

Once I'm done, my skin looks way less puffy, and I'm left with a beautiful glow.

So shout out to the opuntia ficus-indica stem extract (aka organic cactus), halicacabum vine extract, and arnica oil that all work together to calm and de-puff my morning skin.

On top of these ingredients, the product also contains red algae to support collagen production, time-released niacinamide (everyone's skincare superhero), virgin hemp oil to help with elasticity, and buriti oil for hydration.

Yep, this oil blend pretty much does it all. Now if only I could find a way for it to pay my bills and get rid of this pandemic, then life would be perfect.
