LŌA is a skin care company based in British Columbia. Not only are all of their products vegan and cruelty-free, they ensure the suppliers from whom they purchase ingredients are as well. I recently tried their “Miracle Oil“, said to heal all sorts of issues rooted in inflammation like acne, eczema, and psoriasis.
I don’t have issues with severely dry skin, but I do have acne. I have to admit, I was skeptical of anything with the word “miracle” in its name, but I am suitably impressed. The idea of putting “oil” on your face seems weird, no? But it is light and gentle and rubs in nicely. I have been using it as a kind of spot treatment, as I find I (still! ugh!) get pimples sometimes and the surrounding skin will be quite red (inflamed). I am very fair-skinned so any redness is pretty noticeable. I was shocked to return to a mirror a couple of hours after applying Miracle Oil and finding the redness diminished almost entirely! Wow!
According to their website, “The secret behind Miracle Oil is its rich content of skin-loving omega-3 and 6 essential fatty acids, and cell regenerating phytonutrients. These are crucial components for combating inflammation, balancing nutritional deficiencies, and restoring the skin’s natural moisture barrier.”
One of the uses I’m really interested in is for sunburn and bug bites. Despite my constant slathering on of sunscreen, I end up with a sunburn in a small area at least once every year so now I’ll be ready this summer if that happens! And with summer comes mosquitoes, especially when I’m out at the barn in the evenings! I’m very curious to try this oil on these conditions.
The price seems kind of mid-range at $27 but a little goes a long way and I’m expecting the small bottle to last quite a long time, making the investment more than worth it.
