Strong enough to combat winter dryness and light enough for summer, this face oil can be used year-round. Use after exfoliation for ultimate absorption.

Birchbox Breakdown

For most of us, oil is the last thing we’d think to put on our faces. But natural essential oils work wonders on all skin types — even oily and combination types. We love Pangea’s Himalayan Geranium & Pomegranate Balancing Oil, which is surprisingly light, and absorbs quickly to leave you silky and hydrated. It’s packed with vitamins and antioxidants to revive tired skin, and we love how it gives us a dewy — not slick — finish. The earthy scent is comforting, too.

How it Works

Made from cold-pressed oils derived from vegetables, seeds, and nuts, this lush formula has antioxidants, vitamins, and essential fatty acids that nourish skin and combat signs of aging. Geranium oil balances and repairs skin, while pomegranate seed oil stimulates cell and collagen production.

How to Use

After cleansing, gently massage oil onto damp face, neck, and décolleté in an upward circular motion. Use 1-2 drops for oily skin, 2-3 drops for balanced or combination skin, and 3-4 drops for dry or mature skin. Apply morning and night, either by itself or underneath moisturizer.

Pangea's Only Negative

I am in love with Pangea. I love that they are all natural and eco-friendly. I love their products!! However, this balancing oil is not my favorite.

The oil is extremely heavy and sticky and made my face feel clogged. I could practically feel my pores shrieking. If you have extremely dry skin then this product is definitely for you. However, if your skin is normal, combination or oily, steer clear!

Love this stuff!

I love putting this balancing oil on my face. I use it directly after washing at night, before using moisturizer and toner. The smell is very warm & earthy and the oil spreads very nicely to the areas I want to massage it into. I was skeptical at first of putting oil on my face since my skin can tend towards being too oily at times, but have only seen and felt improvements since using Pangea products. Even in winter my skin doesn't feel dry anymore and I feel that this product helps my face retain moisture for longer than just using a regular moisturizer. It just feels and smells great going on all-around. It's pricey but it lasts. I use one pump per night and I have been using the same bottle since September and it's still only about 1/4 of the way down.
