I was so excited to try these products from the Polish skincare brand Resibo as they are infused with so many wonderful natural oils. Although I have oily skin, I still enjoy using oils at the end of the night to reap in the benefit whilst I sleep. Resibo have created some amazing products using heavy duty natural oils that you wouldn't really use on the skin in full concentration form especially for those with oily / sensitive skin as they can potentially block pores, worsen acne and leave an unwanted greasy shine.
The worlds most luxurious heavy duty oils used in Resibo's skincare include Coconut Oil, Kukui OIl, Brazilian nut Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, Olive oil, Sesame oil and even Moringa oil. These oils have been used for centuries to hydrate the skin, restore nutrients such as antioxidants and essential fatty acids. Heavy duty oils take time to sink into the skin and serve more benefit to those with dry skin, but the Resibo oil infused cream range allows all skin types to enjoy the golden elixirs.
Resibo have taken the heavy duty face and body oils and combined then with natural emulsifiers, such as plant and fruit based waxes, including water to create a potent range of oil infused skin care that can be used for all skin types. They use natural ingredients to help protect the integrity of each of the sacred oils, so the oil in cream formulas can permeate the skin, whilst the emollients seal in moisture and act as a barrier to the protect the skin from environmental factors.
The Resibo range is also cruelty free, vegan friendly and housed in gorgeous biodegradable. I didn't take a picture of the outer casing but the eye cream and hydrating cream came in a lovely recycle paper tubing which will be great to reuse for storing brushes or lip pencils when travelling.
The three products all have unique ingredients with in them for their special benefits which is a little scientific but Im going to try my best to explain and also what I thought of them.
Eye Cream - 96.9% Natural
The eye area is very delicate and as it doesn't have sebaceous glands it is the first place where wrinkles start to appear. The unique ingredient found in the eye cream is Redens'in, a resin extract from an Indian tree called Commiphora Mukul. Together with the other 15 powerful natural ingredients it increases the adipocytes in the fatty layer around the eye, filling in wrinkles, reducing dark circles and puffiness. Ingredients such as argon oil, sesame oil and rhubarb extract enhance hydration and the natural pH balance. Caffeine and butcher's broome rhizome extract improves blood circulation to help lessen dark circles and puffiness. The lemon peel extract helps to clear and brighten the area around the eye.
The cream comes in a pump bottle, so you wont get any wastage and will be easy to use up the end of the product. You also only need a small amount , about half a pump as its very creamy and a little goes a long way. It will take a while to massage into the skin, which is fine as you get to promote further blood circulation in the area and you can feel how concentrated it is. Its very hydrating and It was perfect as my under eye area can get dry and flaky so this worked amazing to not only make me look more awake but to soften and smoothen out the delicate skin. I prefer to use this at night time due to the creaminess of it, although it doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy
Nourishing Cream 98.8% Natural
This face cream is to help revive, moisturise and sooth the face whilst also hydrating. The unique oil in cream formula contains a whole range of powerful ingredients to combat wrinkles, line and and irregularities. The cream contains cyanobacteria extract with acts as a natural retinoid to smooth fine lines, wrinkles and to even out the skins texture, Brazilian nut oil, apricot kernel oil and tomato extract which is rich in lycopene will nourish the skin with essentials vitamins and amino acids to firm the skin and give a youthful glow. The cream also has cold pressed oil and hyaluronic acid to hydrate with an addition of pumpkin seen extract to sooth irritation and calm the skin.
Its jam packed with amazing natural ingredients and it also smells so yummy and sweet. Its really creamy and soft on the skin, but doesn't leave a icky greasy layer and melts into the skin. I again loved using this at night, so its the only things I have on my skin whilst my body rests so it can work its magic. You can also use it in the day and would be amazing for those who have dry skin. I always have softer smoother skin the day after and my face feels like its just had the benefits of a face mask. When ever I feel I have issues with dryness or when my skin needs extra TLC this is what I'm reaching for. It also comes in a pump bottle which makes it easy to use and will prevent wastage.
Body Lotion 98.5% Natural
The body moisturiser is formulated with ingredients to help strengthen the sub dermal layer of the skin and to increase moisture retention and combats the signs of ageing with essential fatty acids. The key ingredients used for this is a special blend of Coconut Oil and Tahitian Gardenia. It also has Hawaiian Kukui Oil which is rich in linoleic and its acids , to help smooth and protect the skin from environmental factors. Additional ingredients such as Siberian Lungwart extract is rich in vitamins A, B, C and D as well as carotene which will regulate cell renewal, strengthen and heal.
The lotion is a favourite for both my husband and I and its currently one of his daily moisturisers. its deeply moisturising despite is not being very thick, its still creamy and light. It melts into the skin and I have found that my skin has a nourished feel for much longer.
Soothing Lip Balm 99.5% Natural
The 3 in 1 Smoothing lip balm is to protect , moisturise and nourish the lips whilst the skin on the lips regenerate. Its the most natural product of the four with its own unique ingredients. It has Abyssinian seed oil which has high volumes of linoleic and omega fatty acids to reduce the inflammation of dry chapped lips and improve cell regeneration. Brassica Alba Sprout extract draws out the lips natural redness and plumps up the lips to enhance and you also have shea butter, mimosa flowers, jojoba was, almond wax and sunflower wax to restore moisture and increase hydration retention. You will also get a sweet flavour from the stevia plant and the freshness of mangos.
The balm was a last min addition to the range for me, but I fell in love with it as soon as I used it. You would think that an oil in cream product would be light and greasy, but the balm is thick , but once you start to apply it to the lips it melts to the right consistency to coat the lips. Its not shiny or glossy but more of a natural matte finish that is lasting. My lips have been really soft and my lipstick also applies and looks better too. The only thing I didn't really notice was too much volume or the redness of my lips pop, probs because my lips are not too pink. However my top lip cupid bows area was much more defines, ever so slightly! Thats not really what I look for in lip products anyway, so I was just super happy with how nourishing the balm is.
All in all I loved the range of products and I cant wait to get my hands on some of their oils. Not only do these products give you the best skincare , they smell amazing and their packaging is also really pretty ( and recyclable). These products are all close to 100% natural with an amazing variety of ingredients, some of which I have never even heard off.
No matter your skin type the range is suitable for all. To check out some more of Resibo's range head over to their website > www.resibo.com.au
I hope you enjoyed my review and found it just as educational as it was for me to learn about the different benefits of nature that are being incorporated into skincare.
