I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, anything that’s recommended to me by Cult Beauty founder Alexia Inge is bound to get my attention and usually becomes a product staple of mine. Her most recent recommendation was a new brand to me, Skin Owl. Recently added to the Cult Beauty family, Skin Owl was started by Annie Tevelin as a personal cure to her acne. Her products became more and more in demand leading her to create a small but great, capsule skincare collection.

The product I was most excited to try was the Beauty Drops PM Mangosteen, because Mangosteen is a fruitΒ I love and I’ve never seen it included in skincare. Apparently it is 1600 times more powerful than well known superfoods like Acai and Goji. What I also like about this product is the tiny list of ingredients, it simply includes two things, “Raw, Organic, cold-pressed African Adansonia digitata (Baobab) Oil and Pure Garcinia mangostana (Mangosteen) Oil”. The brand advices using 10 drops in the evening after cleansing but I usually go for around 6-8 drops (I have quite a small face!) The smell is absolutely gorgeous, like naturally sweet fruit. It’s not a really heavy oil, but it’s not too light either and you can layer it up to use as an overnight mask too. I find it easily replaces both my evening serum and moisturiser and plumps up my skin giving it a lovely glow.

It’s pricey at Β£68 but can be used sparingly if you don’t get addicted like me! I’m a fan and it’s definitely been added to my skincare shelf.

    Is it bad that I want this purely because it’s owl related? It sounds like a lovely face oil, I’m definitely intrigued as I’ve never heard of mangosteen before!

    This sounds lovely! And I love the fact that they only use two ingredients, that just proves that we don’t always need all these chemicals.


  23. This sounds great! it is expensive but you know it must be good and organic if there is only 2 ingredients
