When all you want is luminosity (sans oiliness) for your skin, Tea Seed Elixir delivers. This smart cocktail of sweet orange, pink grapefruit and nourishing oils from tea seed, flaxseed and apricot balances oil production, shrinks blemishes and brightens skin tone.
A skin-balancing facial oil.
With origins in Southeast Asia, tea seed oil—from the seeds of the Camellia sinensis, the plant from which all teas are made—was adopted by Japanese geishas as a backstage staple to remove their iconic makeup and nourish their porcelain skin. For the modern beauty ritual, it’s the key ingredient in this skin-balancing elixir. An oily T-zone and parched patches everywhere else has always been a fundamentally tricky skin issue, but Tea Seed Elixir takes the burden off. It moisturizes and imparts a dewy glow that makes you look lit from within—totally different from that dreaded 2 p.m. shine. And with the perfect balance it brings comes a blemish-free complexion that’s primed for makeup, or radiant enough to go without.
Warm 3 to 4 drops in your hands, then press your palms against your cheeks and forehead, and finish by gently patting your nose and chin.
