Sunday Riley Juno Hydroactive Cellular Face Oil Review

I've been seeing rave reviews of lots of different Sunday Riley products throughout the blogosphere lately, so I decided I wanted to give one of their facial oils a try. I have slightly dry, dehydrated skin which has a tendency to look a little dull and flat - so I'm always looking for products to hydrate and plump my skin in the hopes that I will be able to get that ever elusive youthful glow.

I decided to go with the Juno oil - it's described as a botanically active blend of cold pressed superfood seed oils, packed with antioxidants, vitamins, essential amino acids and contains anti-inflammatory agents, not to mention it's essential oil free.
It's designed to hydrate and brighten the skin giving it an 'obsession worthy' glow as well as providing anti ageing benefits -helping to stop premature ageing by increasing the production of collagen. making the skin look more plump. It sounded perfect for me, I just couldn't resist - I will try out anything that promises to help diminish signs of ageing.

The first thing I noticed about this oil was how gorgeous it looked. It comes in a glass bottle with a dropper: the bottle has an ombre appearance going from pink to clear, while the oil itself is yellow. The second thing a noticed was its strong herbal scent. The scent made me a little nervous, as very often scented products can give me headaches. I also have very sensitive skin so a lot of products tend to break me out, especially heavily scented ones.
I was however relieved to discover that once I applied the oil, the scent quickly disappeared. - so, no headaches/bad reactions.

Juno oil is described as a dry oil that absorbs quickly into the skin - but personally I've found it to be a very oily oil which leaves my face looking quite greasy when applied, which is a good thing for my dry/dehydrated skin. However, I would only recommend applying it overnight. Applying it in the morning not only makes me look greasy, but I find applying makeup over it impossible. Whereas, when I apply it at night - the next morning, my skin feels soft and plump, I've also noticed if I have any little spots or bumps under my skin they're gone the next morning too!
It's recommended that you apply 5-7 drops, but I've found that 3 drops are ample for me.

I've been using this oil at night for about a month. While I can't see a huge difference in my skin, I will say my skin feels smoother and softer after I used it and the fact that it somehow manages to get rid of upcoming small spots and texture on the skin is really impressive. I would've liked a little more glow though. At €100 this oil is expensive, I'm not sure whether I would purchase it again. But I definitely want to try out more from the range. I am very tempted to try the Flora Hydroactive Cellular Facial oil next.
One other thing that I wanted to mention is the box the oil comes in: the lid lifts off the base with ease, meaning if you lift the box without holding the base, the base is lightly to fall and the oil smash.
Although it hasn't happened with this oil,  it did happen a few years ago with a Creme De La Mer moisturiser in virtually the same packaging and it ended up smashing on the kitchen floor! So just be weary.

I would love to know if anyone has tried this oil and whether or not you've got any tips for wearing it under makeup.
