Amazing Oils Magnesium Moisturiser
This moisturiser is my new best friend.
Let me start by saying that I have tried out lots and lots of natural skincare.
However, nothing I have tried has ever had this much noticeable improvement on my skin.
I don’t want to get overly dramatic and gushy here, but wow. Really…. wow.
Okay, so let me tell you all about it!
I have been a big fan of the Harold family and their all Aussie owned and made Amazing Oils business for a few years now. The magnesium products are truly great quality and as most people are deficient in magnesium, they get good results for a wide range of ailments.
This month they have released their new magnesium moisturiser – the first ever organic skincare range based on magnesium. I was super keen to test this out! It comes in a 100g tub and the ingredients are: shea butter, coconut oil, hazelnut oil, magnesium chloride (22%), apricot oil, glycerine and vitamin E.
Very simple, all natural ingredients which have a very mild, slightly coconut smell. They have perfected the formula so that it is stable and doesn’t separate which often happens with products containing coconut oil.
How do you use it?
I have been trialling it for around six weeks now and this is how I prefer to use it for my skin. I get a pea sized amount of the moisturiser, rub it into my hands to melt and then massage all over my face until it’s all absorbed. It takes a while to sink in so keep massaging well.
I find if I use too much, it sits on top of my skin and is a bit oily and I have to keep massaging in half an hour or so afterwards. A small amount, massaged in well is fine. I prefer to use it regularly at night but if I am at home through the day, it’s okay for day time use as well. If I am going out and wearing make up, I prefer to use something a bit lighter on my skin.
For the first few days, it was a little itchy but nothing too bad. This settled down and now I have only experienced the itchiness if I have just exfoliated my skin. If you get stinging after using magnesium, this article explains why.
After a few weeks of use, I had a few breakouts around my chin, which may or may not be related to the moisturiser but I suspect that the magnesium has a bit of a detoxing effect. I just used the Ugly Bits Stick on them though and they were gone overnight. (PS here are my thoughts on the Ugly Bits Stick).
What I have noticed?
After about four weeks of use, I got a few compliments on my skin! Wow, that hasn’t happened for a long, long time. After having some health problems, I often look very tired and washed out, with a bit of a dullness.
To be honest, I hadn’t really noticed as I don’t spend a lot of time looking at myself in the mirror and our bathroom lighting is pretty bad. I have never really been one to worry about wrinkles and stuff. I do cover up blemishes with a bit of make up if I am going out but that’s about it!
Anyway, I went out to the car in the full sunshine and checked it out in the car mirror! Yep, I could see and feel some differences. And more so in the last two weeks.
♥ softer and plumper more hydrated skin
♥ a reduction in fine lines, particularly around my eyes
♥ a softening of the acne scarring on my cheeks
♥ a lightening of the pigmentation, particularly on my cheek bones that has been there since having kids
♥ overall the skin tone has improved and is more consistent and smoother
♥ would it be lame to say dewy? 😀 No, really I think my skin has a really nice glow about it now
That’s after six weeks of use. I am pretty darn impressed.
When I looked into why it works, this is what I found out. The magnesium blend balances the PH of your skin, the magnesium lightly exfoliates and detoxes dead skin cells which is what helps with spots, blemishes, wrinkles and pigmentation. When you use it daily, it promotes new cell production which gives you that nice glow.
The Harold family at Amazing Oils recommend that you can use this moisturiser in three ways.
♥ As a rich overnight facial repair treatment.
♥ To soothe skin conditions like psoriasis, dermatitis, acne, eczema and rashes. So you can use it all over the body – not just your face like I did!
♥ To gently boost your magnesium levels.
If you use it twice a day, it should last 4-6 months. Remember you only need to use a teeny bit!

I am so keen on using this as my nightly moisturiser now to see what else happens! I am also going to get my hubby and mum onto it as well. Luckily the lovely Harold family are giving us a discount code to use so you can all try it out and see what difference it makes to your skin.
