Oasis Black | Face and Body Elixir | Product Review

Updated: May 15

Looking for a solution to your dry skin? Here's what I use, along with everything you need to know to see if it's a fit for you, plus some tips from the gorgeous creator herself!

I came across Oasis Black's Face and Body Elixir last winter while my skin was dry and falling apart.

Before trying, I remember messaging Mel, owner of the Byron Bay business, asking if these oils were going to work on my skin type specifically. My complexion was dry at the time, but can also quickly become quite oily, so I didn't want to overcorrect. First world problems, I know.

After she put my mind at ease, I tried them myself and I'm so happy I did! So much so I sat down with Mel to gain a little more insight into her products and inspirational business journey, which I now pass on to you, along with a special offer for our readers!

Firstly, here's why I love and regularly use Oasis Black's Face and Body Elixir:

  • The collection smells like you've just walked into a day spa. You instantly feel relaxed and know you've got your hands on a high quality product from the texture alone.

  • The product worked! My dry skin improved and I still continue to use it outside of winter.

  • Mel's a boss babe, building Oasis Black from the ground up. I'll happily support that! Shop local, people!

  • All products come in varying sizes depending on your needs, including a baby travel size version I can refill from the main bottle, which has already accompanied me around three countries!

  • All packaging is as environmentally friendly as possible - recycled, recyclable, non-toxic glue, sustainably sourced... you get the idea!

Now, a few words from the creator herself!

What sparked your mission to turn your experience in Morocco into a business back home?

Unbeknownst to me at the time, my Oasis Black journey started when I was on a career sabbatical that saw me living and working in a surf camp in Morocco.

I spent so much time in the hot dry air, salt water and sun there, that it was out of sheer desperation for a solution to my severely dry and malnourished skin that lead to the birth of Oasis Black.

I looked to what the locals did for a solution to my skin’s problem. That’s when I was introduced to the wonderful world of healing plant oils, in particular, Black Seed Oil.

From there, many of the people who tried my product were noticing the healing effect it had not just on their dry skin, but many of their other skin problems too.

"It was these success stories that lead me to realise that I had created a completely natural, simple and versatile product that could help so many people regain healthy skin again."

This was when I realised that I needed to help as many people as I could, and that’s what lead me to start Oasis Black.

What results can we expect from using these oils?

With regular use of my elixirs, both men and women can expect to regain healthy, nourished and younger looking skin. Plus, unlike many other face and body oils on the market, my elixir’s will never leave you feeling or looking greasy or oily.

The all natural ingredients in my elixirs have specifically been chosen because they can be absorbed in to the deepest layers of the skin, delivering the vitamins, minerals and other skin loving nutrients to where they’re needed most.

Over time with consistent use, this can help to replenish and revitalise skin cells so they become plump, strong and healthy again, which also helps to reduce the visible signs of ageing.

How do you recommend the elixir is used?

For the face, I recommend using the elixir twice daily, on freshly cleansed skin, in place of any serums/moisturisers/creams or any other beauty products you may use (eg retinols, vitamin c serums, night/eye creams, anti-wrinkle serums etc).

There are a lot of naturally active ingredients in my elixirs, so doubling up on these active ingredients with other man-made products may be too much for your skin.

"I realise this routine may seem too simple for a lot of people, but I encourage you to give it a go and to see how beneficial just using one natural product can be for your skin (and your wallet)."

For the body, I recommend using the elixir daily or whenever your skin is in particular need of nourishment or moisture. I find that in winter my skin is drier, so I tend to use more of the elixir in the cooler months. Observe your skin and if you feel that it needs more or less, just adjust the dosage accordingly.

For Men it makes a great beard oil, aftershave or general skin moisturiser.

I also recommend using it on any cuts, rashes, bites, stings, irritated or inflamed skin as many of the ingredients used in the elixir possess strong anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-fungal properties that when combined with the oils’ other nourishing properties, can help to speed up your skin’s natural healing process.

How have the public responded to your products?

I am constantly touched by all the fabulous feedback I receive from people who have tried my elixirs. The high percentage of repeat customers I have is particularly humbling as it shows me that people genuinely love my products.

Some of my favourite messages to receive are those of thanks and excitement when my customers tell me that they’ve been told they’re glowing, and then asked what they use on their skin.

I particularly love hearing from customers when they tell me that my elixir has been able to help them heal their persistent skin condition when no other product has been able to help them before.

What’s next for Oasis Black?

I’m currently in the testing phase of a line of organic soaps I plan to release soon that will work hand-in-hand with my elixirs.

I want to be able to offer people the complete solution for a simple yet effective skincare routine. I want to show people that less is more when it comes to skincare – all you need for all over healthy glowing skin is a good quality cleanser and elixir made from all natural and organic botanical ingredients.

It also makes travel a breeze when you only have to pack a soap and bottle of my elixir for your entire body’s skincare routine.
