This sweet-smelling nectar comes straight from my boudoir as an evolution of some personal, concentrated hocus-pocus. The result of a heady mix of hope and determination, I was searching for ways in which to nourish my skin, improve my complexion and make it truly glow, all while I slept overnight (call me demanding, I don’t mind).

There was one important caveat: it needed to defend against acne and soothe away those hateful blemishes that had dared to grace my face (the truth is, I’d had a bad reaction to something which had led to months of not-quite-up-to-par skin [understatement] and I was not amused). Basically, I wanted something to nourish and moisturise, but not cause any greasiness or spot-related catastrophes.

There is something slightly jazz-hands-inducing about going to bed knowing you will wake up looking more dewy and divine. Everyone’s skin is different, of course, but, for me, this stuff works (and complements the Good Face Day Serum with Rasperry Seed, Green Tea & Juniper pefectly).

The lightweight, high-quality oils in this are exactly the sort of thing you want to be putting on sensitive or combination skin; chosen with paranoia-level care, they all rate very low on the comedogenic scale (meaning they are unlikely to cause breakouts because they will not clog your pores), imparting wondrous nutrients without the side portion of facial-freakout.

Uses & Directions:
Dispense 2 drops (a little goes a long way!) into your hand and smooth over your face in gentle upward/outward movements. Tip: I like to quickly rub any oil left on my hands afterwards around my cuticles, because I’m rock and roll like that. (And why not follow with the Frankincense & Tea Seed Magic Eye Night Serum?)

Key ingredients/benefits:
JOJOBA: Technically a wax, its structure is so similar to our natural sebum that it’ll sink in very nicely. Softening, regenerative and plentiful in vitamin and minerals.

COLD PRESSED CAMELLIA (TEA) SEED OIL: Traditionally favoured by Japanese geisha (who know a thing or two about beauty), this light oil is healing, softening, nourishing, packed full of micro-nutrients… See here for more on this!

ORGANIC COLD PRESSED ROSEHIP OIL: Wonderful for reversing hyperpigmentation, the signs of aging, sun damage, stretch marks and scars. Its high anti-oxidant content improves texture and revitalizes the skin.

CARROT SEED OIL: Improves tone and helps to balance both oily and dry complexions. Healing, hydrating and detoxifying.

ORGANIC ARGAN OIL: One of my favourite things about this oil, is that, like the others carefully chosen for this blend, it doesn’t cause blockages, spots or oil build up. Full of antioxidants, vitamin E and essential fatty acids, many claim it boosts elasticity of the skin (keeping things looking fresh and vibrant) and it’s another balancing oil that helps keep your complexion on an even keel.

HEMP SEED OIL: Reduces redness and inflammation associated with acne breakouts and is effective for use with a range of skin conditions. Full of vitamin E, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Anti-inflammatory.

JUNIPER BERRY: Antiseptic, stimulating and antibacterial. A naturally purifying acne-fighter, juniper has a long history of general and medicinal know-how. In medieval times, it was seen as an excellent defence against evil spirits, and The Old Testament includes several references to the ‘Broom Tree’ being used to cleanse, purify and eliminate that which is false and negative. (If nothing else, it balances sebum levels.)

NEROLI, BERGAMOT, MANDARIN & PEPPERMINT: All contributing skin-improving benefits of their own, these essential oils together add some sweet zing to the mix, making it feel both luxurious and lightly cooling.

Simmondsia chinensis (Jojoba) seed oil, Camellia Olifera (Camellia Tea) seed oil, Vitis vinifera (Grapeseed) seed oil, Cannabis sativa (Hemp) seed oil, Argania spinosa (Argan) kernel oil, Rosa canina (Organic Rosehip) fruit oil, Oenothera biennis (Evening Primrose) oil, Citrus nobilis (Mandarin Orange) peel oil, Citrus aurantium bergamia (Bergamot) fruit oil, Citrus aurantium (Neroli) flower oil, Juniperus communis (Juniperberry) fruit oil, Daucus carota sativa (Carrot) seed oil, Mentha piperita (Peppermint) leaf oil, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Citral*, Linalool*, Limonene*, Geraniol*, Farnesol*. *Naturally occurring constituents of essential oils.

    Since I’ve been using this beautiful, natural product, I’ve seen a real improvement in my skin. It is really glowing and clear. I was wary about putting oil on my skin, as I am prone to spots, but haven’t had any problem at all. Wonderful!

  2. Melanie

    This is a life-saver. I have had combination skin with an oily t-section and sore, dry cheeks in winter, for years now. But within a few days of giving up my day and night creams and moving over to leafology oils, everything evened out. It seems strange to me that switching to oils solved my oily skin issue, but there it is. I’m now ordering the eye oil as well to see what this adds.

    Absolutely gorgeous product! Love love love it! I haven’t broken out since using it. I ordered the 10ml to try it and gave placed a 50ml order tonight! My face feels super soft each morning! Thank you!

  4. Angela

    Absolutley love this oil! After just one use my skintone was much brighter and even and it smells lovely. I can’t imagine being without it now!

    This stuff has been an actual game-changer for my skin. I have naturally oily/combo skin and have battled it for so many years. Over the past year or two, I’ve been trying to work with it and moisturise it before, then a couple of months ago, I started using Leafology’s products on my face and … Well, let me tell you about just two things that have happened in that time …

    1. I’ve been complimented on my skin. On more than one occasion. This has never happened to me before. I’ve always considered myself to have BAD skin. One of those times was by a makeup artist and beauty expert who was shocked to learn my skin’s naturally oily.

    2. I can get to the end of the day without blotting or powdering my skin and it’s still matte. I used to be shiny by 11am. By the end of the day, my foundation had gone completely, having slid off my oily skin. Now, it still looks great when I take it off. I’m in shock!

    In the past I’d been skeptical about putting oil on my face considering my oily t-zone. I needn’t have been! This in conjunction with the cleansing balm and Good Face Day Serum have completely changed my skin (and just in time for me to get married later this month – phew!). I’m so pleased – thank you, Ella Rose! <3

  6. Eleanor

    This stuff is truly brilliant! It really restores my sensitive, dry skin, no matter what the day has thrown at it! It soothes, moisturises, and calms – which is a wonderful relief when my rosacea flares up and makes my skin feel tight. (I still need to remember to drink more water though!)
    Using this and the Good Day face serum has made such a big difference to my skin; I no longer have to worry about flare ups like I used to, and people have commented that my skin looks radiant 🙂

  7. Abbey Vint

    This stuff is AMAZING! I feel so decadent putting it on my skin at night plus when I wake in the morning, I can see a difference. I know I’ve nurtured my face over night because of what my skin looks like after the nights I DON’T use it (which is not often because I LOVE this stuff) I’m always hesitant to try new stuff on my skin as I can break out pretty easily but this stuff seamlessly made my skin look soft and glowing, no adjustment period necessary.👍❤️

    Using Face Food has become my nightly ritual. I finished my first bottle then decided I should use up all my other products before ordering the next bottle because they are expensive products which I don’t like to waste (Elemis). During this time my skin tone declined but immediately upon using Face Food bottle #2, my face looked 100% better than it had done with my skin looking more clear, translucent and smooth than at any other time during my 49 years! I wish this stuff had been invented in my 20’s. It’s simply amazing and an absolute treat to use, it makes my evening cleansing regime into a very pleasurable and essential ritual.

  9. lizhebburn

    I love these all natural cruelty free and ethical beauty products by Leafology. I have been using several of the products for a couple of months now and I really have noticed a difference is the condition and tone of my skin. One of my favourite products is the overnight serum. It smells lovely and has become a must in my evening skincare routine. It really feels like it is relaxing out the skin and it does it’s magic overnight so you wake up with fresh and conditioned skin.

  10. Rachel Collings

    I really can’t sufficiently express how much I love this overnight miracle potion! My skin dries out instantly after washing (even with just water) and I relish the application of this amazing product before bed as it literally feeds my face! The smell is just delicious and my nightly facial mini-massage provides a relaxing pre-sleep treat…every night! Just devine. I always have a 50ml bottle on my dresser and a 10ml for overnight stays so I’m never without my precious nightly routine. And my skin is still soft, supple and glowing in the morning – ready to start the day the the complementing Good Face Day Serum! Fabulous skin 24/7. Can’t recommend Leafology enough!

  11. Rosie Forth

    Using this in combination with the Good Day Face Serum makes my skin glow. I stopped using both products for a while (thought I might be able to get by) and eventually got to the point where the difference was distressing! Having placed a recent order again I can attest to how clear, smooth and beautiful my skin is when I’m using anything in the Leafology range. The Face Food smells incredible and is a firm favourite 🙂

  12. transcen_dance

    A beautiful addition to my nightly ritual. The smell is divine, the feel is lush and smooth, and the visible result is a tangibly radiant glow. A new favorite.

  13. Esther

    The Face Food has become a staple in my routine and I wouldn’t be without it now! It’s so moisturising but also sinks in very quickly and feels lovely to apply. A little goes a long way so I’m getting great value out of my bottle. I used to struggle with dry and scaly patches of skin on my face during winter and this hasn’t happened this year for the first time in ages. I also have very greasy skin and find that even though this product is oil based it actually reduces the amount of oil my face produces so I don’t have to worry about looking greasy by 4pm. I even spread it over my chronically dry lips when I use it on my face and it definitely helps.

  14. Jo Hechle

    I have a problem with combination skin, and although I think it’s really important to keep one’s skincare regime 100% toxin-free I haven’t managed to do so because I’ve not found the right product – until now. This overnight face food has really balanced my skin out and I feel so much better for having natural ingredients on my face.

  15. Claire Palastanga

    Face food has become by new favourite product, replacing my normal moisturiser and serum. It smells divine and has left my skin fresh and lovely again, clearing up some stress red dry patches. I love it and won’t be using anything else from now on.
