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.

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.
