True Botanicals Pure Radiance Oil: Is it Worth $100?

If you had asked me about my favorite facial oil 10 years ago, I would have looked at you sideways. With my acne-riddled face, there was no way I was putting oil on my face. Oh, how times have changed. Now, you can find True Botanicals Pure Radiance Oil on my face just about every night!

Now full disclaimer, the brand did gift me this product but I am in no way obligated to share it and, of course, all opinions are my own.

True Botanicals has revolutionized the facial oil industry with vegan, cruelty-free, and sustainably sourced products. MADE SAFE® certified without 6,500 toxins, True Botanicals prides itself on offering the purest ingredients for effective results.

Pure Radiance Facial Oil

True Botanical’s best-seeling face oil is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while increasing hydration.

The brand conducted clinical trials based on a 45-day study of 20 women ages 30-60 who used the product twice a day. According to the study, 100% of women saw more luminous skin, a reduction in the look of fine lines and wrinkles, and improved hydration.

The Pure Radiance Facial Oil is made up of a blend of Omega 3 fatty acids, 14 seed oils, algae extract, and astaxanthin, which helps deliver more hydration by visibly plumping skin. The oils are scented with jasmine, neroli, and rose. They are also hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic – acne-sufferers rejoice!

The full-size bottle (1 fl oz | 30 ml) of Pure Radiance Oil will cost you $110. True Botanicals does offer a 15% discount on their site if you subscribe to a monthly plan. You can choose from 1,2,3, or 4-month frequencies.

Three types of pure radiance oil – clear, calm, and renew

There are three types of True Botanicals Pure Radiance Oil all designed to target different skin concerns.

  • Renew – The renew line is perfect for anti-aging, fine lines, and wrinkles and to help with dullness.
  • Clear – The clear line is best for those experiencing breakouts and uneven skin tone and roughness. It also helps target fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Calm– The calm line is formulated to help those with redness and rosacea-prone skin.

How do you use the radiance oil?

In the mornings, apply 3-8 drops to moist skin followed by sunscreen. For nighttime skincare, I find it best to apply after my serums. I apply 3-8 drops to lock in moisture. If you have oily skin, you may want to use it only at night.

Does True Botanicals Radiance oil expire?

According to the packaging, the Radiance Facial Oil expires or may lose efficacy 12 months after the bottle is opened. Read more about beauty expiration dates here.

Where do I incorporate this into my routine?

AM: After cleansing, toning/misting, but before SPF.

PM: After cleansing, toning/mist, serums

Does this oil really replace my moisturizer?

According to True Botanicals – Yes! This nutrient-rich, anti-aging face oil is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and increase hydration levels — it even outperformed a leading anti-aging moisturizer.

Is the facial oil fragrance-free?

True Botanicals use natural scents such as jasmine, neroli, and rose in their facial oils.

Where to buy True Botanicals oil?

You can find the True Botanicals Radiance Oil at and Nordstrom.

THE VERDICT: In short, YES! Especially if you’re someone who suffers from acne or rosacea skin concerns. Not only is the Pure Radiance Facial Oil effective at keeping skin hydrated and plump, but the best part is you don’t have to use too much product. That means the 1 fl. oz. full-size bottle can easily last you a couple of months.
