It’s unusual for Aveda, predominantly a hair care brand, to have a new skin care launch, but this is absolutely lovely if you like skin oils. It’s actually an oleation oil – because the Tulasara range (there are other products in the range which I haven’t seen or tested) follows Ayurveda, in that context, oleation means ‘administering with oil’ or thereabouts and this is a wash off oil. The way to use it is to brush your skin first, leave the oil on for a few minutes and then wipe off.
It’s not really a skin care method I’ve come across before – which is good; it’s hard to find something new and interesting and yet this is from an age old tradition. The oil is surprisingly light and it’s a blend of sesame, jojoba, sunflower, rosehip, apricot and sweet almond. In other words, not really a ground breaking oil. It’s lightly scented in a sort of floral way but I can’t really pick out exactly what it is. Using the brush to encourage lymphatic drainage, followed by massage with the oil is really what’s at the heart of this – and to be fair, if you already have a facial brush you certainly don’t need this one (at £27!!!) but it does help to create a ritual that gives results in terms of skin softness. I loved doing this although I am not sure I would be moved to do it every day but I like the idea of going through a process (with results at the end of it) that completely focusses on you and your skin. It’s like yoga for your complexion.
The Aveda Tulasara Facial Oil is £38 (the two together in this set comes to £65 HERE). I notice that at this stage you get a free sample kit of the other Tulasara products if you buy the brush and oil as a set.

I’d be prepared to put money down to bet that you won’t have experienced a skin care texture like this before...
