About: hydrating moisturising oil for dry and very dry skin. Specifically formulated to soothe and comfort dry skin prone to redness and discomfort. Packaged in a glass bottle with dropper applicator. 
Review: Santal Face Treatment Oil is a hydrating face oil for very dry skin. Enriched with essential oils Sandalwood and Lavender to nourish and soothe skin, it truly does what it claims. I have been using Clarins Santal Face Treatment Oil every night over the past 4 weeks and have really enjoyed it. The hydrating oil feels good on the skin, it blends in with ease, taking around 15 minutes to fully absorb in to the skin. Santal Face Treatment Oil does not leave skin feeling greasy or oily but the formula is a little heavy so I would not recommend wearing it under makeup during the daytime, otherwise your makeup will slide quite easily. A little goes a long way so you only need a few drops to sufficiently hydrate your face, neck and decolletage/chest areas. The fragrance is lightweight and pleasant. I would  find within 15 minutes it would be absorbed.
The applicator is a good design to ensure you can only use a few drops without getting messy. Although the bottle is a standard 30ml size, it seems to last a long while - I still have plenty to use up. After using at night my skin feels hydrated, more supple and looks glowing by the morning. Luckily I did not experience any breakouts, my skin now has a more even tone and my pores have seemed to reduce in size, which means I have ended up with less blackheads. Overall I am very impressed with Clarins Santal Face Treatment Oil and will definitely buy a bottle in future.
Tip: 2-3 drops should be more than enough to cover the face, neck and decolletage.
Purchased: No.
