Skin Delight is a Hungarian skincare line that’s made entirely by hand, without using any modern machinery. Many of their ingredients are collected from small villages in Asia, and they are made in Hungary in a facility located on a hill in the middle of a forest. They are very eco-conscious and their carbon footprint of their Hungarian facility is less than that of a normal family household.
Lilla, their founder, sent me Skin Delight’s Rainman to try. Designed especially for men, it is a lush, peppery oil with a seductive scent. ‘Wake up man of jungle,’ is how they introduce the oil on their website, and that’s a fitting description because its scent reminds me of a verdant, tropical rainforest.
The carrier oils are coconut, sweet almond, jojoba, argan and avocado; and its unique scent comes from a number of essential oils, including rosewood, frankincense, cedarwood, geranium, jasmine, sandalwood, rose, fennel, lavender and vetiver. It’s very well blended, and its potent scent, in my opinion, projects well and doubles as a fragrance.
It’s recommended for use on the face and body, but I’ve been using it only as a body oil. Most products with coconut oil break me out, and I didn’t want to risk breakouts by using this on my face. The oil has a nice slip to it, and it absorbs well without leaving an greasy residue.
The price is very reasonable for the quality. Although it’s marketed as an oil for men, I think women who like spicy scents will enjoy using this oil.
