Lovingly created by two sister-in-laws Suzannah and Tina (the "Su" and "Ti"), Suti is a small, impeccably crafted new line from the UK that uses only sustainably sourced, organically grown ingredients, hand blended into the finest and gentlest of facial oils, balms and tonics. I plan on reviewing several of them over the next month, but I'm starting with my favorite - the divine Nourish Facial Oil.
It's no secret that we love a good facial oil here at the Blossom Shed, and there's not many I haven't tried - there's some lovely ones out there, but Suti's Nourish Facial Oil has left them all behind - it's just ridiculously nice. A potent blend of 15 plant and flower extracts, it's intensely nourishing, smooth, silky and light, and releases a gorgeous natural fragrance when gently pressed into skin. Skin looks glowing, bright and plump in the morning, like you've just had a wonderful night's sleep.
This blend includes Apricot Kernel, Avocado, Calendula, Argan, Jasmine and Patchouli oils - I suppose it should smell of jasmine, but to me it smells like paperwhites, those gorgeously scented spring bulbs that you can grow on your windowsill, that smell like a mix between narcissus and jasmine. If you like that sort of thing, this smells like heaven in a bottle, and has such a lovely aromatherapy effect that I seem to relax immediately when I put this on. It feels and smells luxurious, and the scent lingers quietly until I fall asleep. The pretty glass bottle looks beautiful on your dresser, as does the pale emerald color of the oil within. My favorite part of all is that it's $52 for the lovely 30ml bottle - I know that doesn't sound cheap, but it's about 1/3 of the price of other luxury face oils - the whole line is incredibly reasonable for the quality and ingredients, which is another reason I'm thrilled by it - it's rare to find good value hand in hand with impeccable quality.
My favorite way to use this is to press a few drops into damp skin at night and forgo the moisturizer - I like that it heals and plumps skin while letting it breath and rest as you sleep. You can use it nightly, or just once or twice a week to pamper, nourish and balance the skin.
You can find Suti products on their website in the UK, and at Shen Beauty boutique in the US.
