It feels a bit counterintuitive to be sharing the ultraluxurious Kjaer Weis The Beautiful Oil right now in the midst of an ongoing global pandemic. But historically, pleasurable self-care from baths to spa rituals actually proliferated during plagues. Besides serving the dual purposes of achieving cleanliness and self-care, luxury beauty products are just enjoyable.
Kjaer Weis The Beautiful Oil is a new stratosphere of luxury; an organic face oil housed in a photogenic glass bottle that has a defined weighty-quality that gently yet resolutely reminds you of its status. Inside, you’ll find rosehip, olive oil, sweet almond oil, jojoba oil, and a signature brightening Root of Light extract that composes the rich juice.
Like many quality face oils focused on nutrition over filler, The Beautiful Oil is a silky, quick-absorbing oil that doesn’t really have a fragrance, only a light, and subtle herbaceous rose scent that quickly dissipates. Excellent for those who don’t want something made with overly-fragranced essential oils.
The oil is straight-forward yet the results exceed expectations. Credit should be given to the high rosehip content, the base of this formula, an oil which continues to inspire in the luxury space for its rejuvenating and skin refining qualities, and the infusion of the Root of Light extract which activates vitality and promotes skin’s inner light. Whether it’s these renewing benefits or the mix of skin-soothing, yet nutrient-rich oils that give skin its streamlined glow, this oil simply works and continues to improve the skin over time. And because it’s made by a makeup artist, the oil is textured to layer under makeup which means it feels like silk on the skin even for those in humid climates.
$225 per bottle isn’t cheap but you get 65ml (over the typical face oil size of 30ml), and a gorgeous bottle whose design has won awards. As Kjaer Weis products are designed with reusable packaging, a full-sized refill costs only $190 which is a positive steal for the amount and quality of product received. Kjaer Weis The Beautiful Oil is the skincare version of haute couture, a quality investment piece that will stand the test of time.
