The title might not ring a bell (see what I did here) for those not familiar with o̶l̶d̶ French songs ( it’s the title of a song from Claude François, you can have a listen here 😉 Also, belle means “beautiful” in French, which is also why I though it would be fitting in a beauty post. But the French touch stops there because this oil is made with love all the way from the Isle of Wright! You may have already seen it on my Instagram feed, that I have been testing out the Blue Labelle Moringa & Raspberry Seed face oil*.
As a child, I was really picky with food (potatoes, euhm or rather fries, counted as veggies for me 😉 but slowly I fell in love with berries, more specifically raspberry. I couldn’t be happier to try a facial oil containing organic raspberry seed oil, because its skin properties are just splendid. Raspberry seed oil is rich in phytonutrients and antioxidants, which contribute in the healthy appearance of the skin. It also provides a natural SPF (equal to titanium dioxide, according to some studies). Little did I know that Moringa was equally wonderful. It’s a concentrate of antioxidants and and nutrients, used for its skin-rejuvenating qualities. Moringa oil has a high oleic level, an enduring shelf life – always great news for beauty bloggers – and is rich in vitamins A and C. Used for its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties to help heal rashes, cuts and burns. Blue Labelle’s face oil also contains safflower seed oil, rich in fatty acids which help repair skin’s barrier.
Ingredients: Simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) oil*, Carthamus tinctorius (safflower) seed oil*, Moringa oleifera (moringa) oil*, Camellia oleifera (camellia) oil*, Rubus idaeus (red raspberry) seed oil*, Oenothera biennis (evening primrose) CO2 extract*, Pelargonium graveolens (geranium) oil*, Juniperus communis (juniperberry) oil*, Boswellia carterii (frankincense) oil*, Rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf CO2 extract*, Limonene‡, Citral‡, Geraniol‡, Citronellol‡, Linalool‡, Eugenol‡. *Certified organic at source. ‡essential oil constituentRegistered by the Vegan Society.

I feel like this is the ultimate winter facial oil: it perfectly retains the skin’s moisture despite temperature dropping. My skin feels plump and hydrated throughout the day. This face oil is nourishing yet light and easily absorbed. I use it every morning, and my face looks glowy, not greasy. Definitely a gorgeous blend against lackluster skin! I have already repurchased it as we speak, along with their Petitgrain & Tamanu cleansing oil, which I’m very excited to try as well. For a product with 100% certified organic ingredients, the price is also reasonnable: 22£ for 30ml and 9£ for 10ml for a product (10ml corresponds to 70 applications). My only and slight concern was the pump, which tends to spill too much oil than needed (for good hydration one to two drops are actually enough). I know some people dislike the scent of red raspberry seed oil in itself, but combined with moringa and the rest of the ingredients, the aroma is quite strong, yet pleasant. (slightly fruity, at least that’s what I think).
In short, Blue Labelle Moringa and Raspberry Seed facial oil is pure vitamin for your skin. I can only recommend it for those looking to give their skin a vitamin boost and key hydration during the winter. If you want to try Blue Labelle, there’s currently 25% off their organic skincare until Sunday, with the code : VeganSoc70bio
Have you tried Blue Labelle?
This sounds amazing! The ingredient list is gorgeous and I am definitely eyeing this brand.
If you do try it, I'd love to hear your thoughts. It's a really lovely brand! xx
Oooh glad to hear you've bought the P & T Cleansing Oil…I think you'll love it! I really like the sound of this oil too 🙂 I think its great that raspberry seed oil has SPF, I have a moisturiser with it in and really like that 🙂
Haha, I read your review hence why 😉 Yes, I prefer to use a facial product with raspberry oil, rather than apply another product wit SPF over it, would be too much for my skin. xx
i love this brand…£22 is a real bargain too when you compare it to some other brands! xx
Agreed! I was also surprised by the inexpensive eu shipping costs. Very lovely brand <3 xx
This oil looks lovely! I keep seeing raspberry seed oil pop up in the products I use and it seems like a really nourishing ingredient. And I definitely need some help with moisture in this cold weather!
It's definitely a great winter oil (plus it looks so cute haha). I'm a huge raspberry lover, so the more the merrier I say 😉 xx
I love the bright blue packaging, that truly reflects the style of the oil! Seems to be really light for combination/acne prone skin. Great pricing too, something that's not going to break the bank 😉
Agreed! The packaging is perky and lovely just like oil itself. Great quality at an affordable price. What's not to love? 🙂 Yes, it's light but nourishing, which is always a great thing! xx
pooh perfect composition for my skin, try to avoid some oils.. Hummm i need to finish a couple before splurge 😉 xx
Haha, I know the struggle 😉 I have the same issue (with masks) and I have two unopened bottles of oils. xx
Julie needs to finish a couple? And me? What can I say? I have still 3 bottles unopen of fantastic oils haha.
Very very nice review. I know Pascale (she kindly sent me also the Camelia & Avocado Cleansing Oil and a small bottle of Face Oil for dry and sensitive from the natural range).
I eyed this because i like it's composition and let's be honest…how beautiful and cheerful are those blue and orange colours!????
Kisses Liz ❤❤❤
Hahaha Alessandra, I feel you! I have a several unopened products, and temptation is everywhere. I totally agree with you, just looking at the bottle makes me happy 😀 Kisses lovely <3
In this case I'm happy because I'm not the only crazy one haha
Anyways..i forgot to tell you that If you didn't you MUST try Caru Skincare face oils.
The immortelle one is such a nice and fragrant (and effective!!) serum. Keeps the face soft as baby bottom and combats oily t-zone and dry patches.
You can't go wrong with Caru! ^_^
Love the sound of this oil Liz! I've been testing a Prickly Pear Seed Oil for the past two weeks or so which my skin absolutely loves during the colder months, but it's so darn expensive (kindly received sample but will be very sad when it runs out), $77 for 30ml! Even though it's really given great results I just can't justify getting it right now…not when I'm studying! So reading your review on this oil has given me hope! Sounds like it would have a similar effect like the oils I've been trying now but at a more affordable price =) Will definitely have this in mind for my next oil. Wonderful review as always Liz xx
You know when we talked on IG I'll order this beauty because the 25% coupon was a sign? 🙂 Well, I totally misread and thought the code is valid until today, not Sunday! I wasn't at home a couple of days and when I yesterday put the oils in the shopping cart, the coupon code was already expired!! What a bummer! 🙂 Now I'm waiting for a new code because in reality I really don't need more oils and spend all my money on them 😛 But we'll see what the week brings 😀 xx
Oh no Jana! Would you like to email me on firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll see what we can do 😉 Pascale x
I really liked this oil too, just ran out last night! I found it did a great job helping to balance my skin 🙂 x
