1. Will this have a mattifying effect? 

No, this creme is lightly hydrating as it contains light oils that help balance excess oils on the skin. Talc is a common ingredient used to give a mattifying effect and that blocks your pores.

2. Will this tighten my skin?

Yes, the oil blend of Jojoba, Cypress and Geranium rebalances sebum production and tightens sagging skin.

3. Does this crème feel oily, since it is made of oils?

Not at all. The oils we use are designed to help reduce excess oils on your skin. They are very light and non-comedogenic so it does not block pores.

 4. Is it a night cream or a day cream?

Our Face Cremes can be used both day and night and although it depends on Individual preference we would suggest to use it twice a day to see visible results.

5. Can I use sunscreen after using this?

None of our formulations contain SPF so it can’t replace a sunscreen but if you are using one we would suggest you to continue your routine while incorporating our Balancing and Firming Creme in it. It is a blend of natural oils and therapeutic grade essential oils which help maintain your skin barrier.

6. Can I use this with actives?

Actives can be an easy choice as they almost give instant results. However, in the long run they sensitise your skin, weaken the skin barrier and lead to other skin issues. Oils, on the other hand, also show results fairly quick and removes the problem from its core. If you still wish to add actives to your skincare, you must use our face creme, to ensure your skin gets all the nourishment from natural oils that it needs.

7. Why is it so expensive?

OC formulations are made with the best quality of oils and essential oils to give you the highest efficacy. Interestingly, many who initially think they’re expensive, change their mind after trying them. Most people who try it feel it is a good investment and switching to OC saves them the salon/treatment costs!

8. Will this suit my sensitive skin?

A slight tingling sensation is normal in the initial stage and is a sign that your skin is in its sensitive form and will heal overtime. The oil blends used in our formulations are light and non comedogenic and hence suitable for sensitive skin.

9. I’m experiencing breakouts after using it a few times. Why is it so?

You may experience a few initial bouts of acne when using the crème, this is absolutely normal. What you are experiencing is called ‘Purging’, which means your skin is reacting to an active ingredient, which is increasing skin cell growth. This is a good sign – it means your skin will soon start shedding dead skin cells and eventually reveal fresh, healthy skin.

How to use

Take one press of the pump and massage on damp skin with gentle upward strokes. While following our 5 step OC Ritual, use this as the final step. Covering your face with a soft cotton mask or towel for 20 minutes post application, improves absorption of the healing essential oils.
