Review: Sunday Riley Juno Hydroactive Cellular Face Oil

Sunday Riley's Juno facial oil is one of my favorites. Although I've finished my bottle, a repurchase is in the near future.

Product Claims: Formulated with a botanically active blend of a cold-pressed powerhouse of superfood seed oils, this formula nourishes the skin with antioxidants, vitamins, essential amino acids, omegas 3, 6, and 9, and naturally soothing agents for a luminous, radiant complexion. Vitamins A and C help to brighten the skin’s appearance for healthy-looking vibrancy, while they fortify the skin with antioxidants to support anti-aging. The oil sinks in, leaving skin hydrated, protected, and ultra-soft for a glowing result.

Ingredients: Rubus Fruticosus (Cold Pressed Blackberry) Seed Oil, Vaccinium Corymbosum (Cold Pressed Blueberry) Seed Oil, Vitis Vinifera (Cold Pressed Chardonnay Grape Seed Oil) Seed Oil, Vaccinium Macrocarpon (Cold Pressed Cranberry) Seed Oil, Rubus Idaeus (Cold Pressed Red Raspberry) Seed Oil, Daucus Carota Sativa (Cold Pressed Wild Carrot) Seed Oil, Nigella Sativa (Cold Pressed Black Cumin) Seed Oil, Brassica Oleracea Italic (Cold Pressed Broccoli) Seed Oil, Limnanthes Alba (Meadowfoam) Seed Oil.

Review: Juno is a lightweight oil that absorbs quickly and nourishes the skin. It was a staple in my morning skincare routine. I used Juno in the morning after a vitamin C serum and followed it up with moisturiser and SPF. When using this oil, my skin seems to "heal" quicker, for lack of a better word. If I've had a breakout, I know I can return to using this with no issues. Juno also wears well under makeup. I've never had any issues with it not mixing well with other products.

I have also used Juno for scar massage earlier this year after my surgical wounds were healed. This was a nice oil for that because it spreads so easily. Massaging my scars was difficult enough, and sometimes painful so I couldn't use thicker products.

Juno is packaged in a purple ombre bottle, with a dropper dispenser. Inside the bottle, there is a small indentation in the bottom so that the dropper is able to easily get all of the product out. My only gripe with the packaging is that I'd have preferred a darker bottle to protect the product from light.

There is no artificial fragrance in this oil. There's no discernible scent to me; it just smells of oils. Think fruit oils as opposed to nut-based oils. Juno is also essential oil-free so it's less likely to irritate those with sensitive skin.

Juno retails for $90/£70 for the 1oz/30ml size and $45/£35 for the 0.5oz/15ml size. Note, all of the oils, with the exception of the meadowfoam seed oil are cold-pressed. Cold-pressed oils are not refined and retain the nutrients of the oil, such as the antioxidants. Cold-pressed oils are more expensive compared to their refined counterparts. I just wanted to point this out because I know some might balk at the price. Other oils priced similarly often do not use cold-pressed oils and/or contain filler ingredients.

The 1 oz lasted me about 9 months; it would have been longer if I hadn't started using it as massage oil. Normally, 1oz of facial oil lasts me anywhere from 10-12 months. 

Would I repurchase? Absolutely!
