The Activist By Mio
I’m a total body oil convert! Especially oils of the dry kind that easily sink in and don’t leave any pesky oil marks on my clean clothes! So when I came across the Mio Activist Oil especially with their Fit Skin For Life tag line, I was just keen to try. However, I was slightly concerned that this was an oil only to be used by the serious gym bunnies out there because of the name, The Activist!
What is The Activist?
The Activist is a resilient building antioxidant body oil that is great for sealing in moisture to give you fit and healthy skin.
The benefits of The Activist?
The triple treat of all oils – no it doesn’t act, sing and dance! It strengthens, moisturises and nourishes skin, especially dry and stressed skin. It works alongside its vitamins and antioxidants to restore elasticity and firm skin.
The one thing that struck me about The Activist Oil was its fantastic smell! Not being able to pin point what the actual ingredients were, it was time for me to take a closer look. The Activist Oil contains:
Organic Sweet Almond Oil – For omega rich moisture, almond oil is also great at protecting and soothing the skin.
Organic Argan Oil – Agran oil is another rich omega source with great antioxidants for nourishment of the skin.
Carrot Seed Oil – Full of vitamins A, C and E, Carrot Seed Oil keeps the skin fresh by rejuvenating and stimulating the outer skin cells.
Cranberry Seed Oil – Who knew cranberries are another fantastic cocktail of vitamins and antioxidants that can aid cellular functions and tighten the skin.
Safflower Seed Oil – A new ingredient to me, the Safflower Seed Oil provides a high level of moisture via a barrier to the skin.
Organic Coconut Oil – An aid for the skin’s natural immune system, it is both soothing and healing.
Jojoba Seed Oil – Jojoba Seed oil is a widely used ingredient that is also another source of Vitamin E complimenting the other oil ingredients to also bring moisture and rejuvenate the skin.
Calendula Oil – An additional soothing and calming oil.
Vitamin E – A classic ingredient that has been used for many years being a powerful antioxidant and protectant against damages to the skin.
Mrs J’s Verdict- Since last summer, I have really got into my body oils. I love the sheen and glow that they give and more importantly, the smell – I love the smell! Being more accustomed to dry oils, I was initially sceptical as to how the Mio oil would work. It was easy to apply and absorb and left my skin feeling quite hydrated without leaving oily marks all over my clothes. It also helped even out my skin tone post days of summer skin exposure. Whilst the activist range would appear to be for the most active or fittest people, it is not! It simply is a superfood for the skin, one that I am keen to keep on using! If that has not convinced you, then the super cocktail of ingredients listed above will! Go on try it for yourself!
