June Jacobs Vanda Orchid Dry Oil


June Jacobs is a woman of many talents. She’s the co-founder of the scientific skin line Peter Thomas Roth, has an exquisite sense of all-natural ingredients, and uses this innate knowledge of the skincare industry to bridge the gap between eco-chic and luxury. It’s no wonder we're thrilled to see her namesake line of skincare carry a dry oil, as we’re often disappointed with the fact that most mainstream brands don’t even bother to create one.

The sultry Vanda Orchid Dry Oil ($45) is a light yet rich, finely-textured oil. With genuine orchid, sweet violet, and rose extracts entwined throughout a decadent peach oil, the dry oil leaves a veil of cheerful vanilla to wonderfully revitalize skin. The dry oil is also packed with exotic-sounding oils that we've never heard of – clary and rosemary leaf oils. This is that kind of deliciously smooth oil you’d want to spray on before sliding on some black stockings for an evening of illicit pleasure.

Repetitiveness and discipline are the secrets of treating your skin with exquisite oils. Here, the peach kernel oil is the star ingredient. Peach kernel oil, as its name implies, is obtained from the kernel, or nut, of the peach fruit. The penetrating nature of peach kernel oil helps prevent serious dehydration, smoothes wrinkles and encourages elasticity and suppleness in all skin types. It’s especially nourishing for sensitive or inflamed skin (such as eczema, psoriasis or acneic conditions) and for delicately mature complexions. The orchid's tonic effects help to cleanse and tighten the pores of the skin, as orchids fight free radicals and have astringent attributes.

A splashy skin supplement with a classic scent catapult this oil to what surely will become a staple on your vanity table.
