Sunday Riley Juno Hydroactive Cellular Face Oil, Dimpleplasties & Little Annoyances

If you happened to have $90 burning a hole in your pocket, you could do much worse than spend them on Sunday Riley’s Juno Hydroactive Cellular Face Oil.

This out-of-the-ordinary oil by skincare guru Sunday Riley is literally packed with those fantastic free-radical-fighting little substances we call antioxidants.

If you want an in-depth explanation of what antioxidants are and how they’re beneficial to your skin, I strongly encourage you to read this highly informative article on Lab Muffin. But to make a long story short (though perhaps slightly over-simplified) free radicals cause aging and antioxidants have the ability to neutralize them.

Cool, huh?

Sunday Riley Juno is a blend of nine oils, which all provide antioxidant benefits. It’s a great one to use year-round, but is especially good to use in the summer, when most of us tend to spend more time outside. As you probably know, UV exposure triggers the formation of free radicals in the skin, so, besides using sunscreen, I think it’s also very important to use antioxidant-rich products in the warmer months in order to minimize sun damage as much as possible.

Ingredients of Sunday Riley Juno Hydroactive Cellular Face Oil


Having oily skin, I only use Sunday Riley’s Juno at night, but if you have a dryer skin type I highly recommend using it in the morning. It’ll leave your skin deeply moisturized and provide a nice protective shield against environmental aggressions.

I think it’s also interesting to note that Juno doesn’t contain any essential oils, so it should be suited even to the most sensitive skin types.

Before we change the subject completely, just a word of caution about the smell: Juno has a pretty odd herbal smell. I personally don’t mind it and can only smell it while massaging the oil onto my face, but it may not be everyone’s cup of tea.

In other news… apparently, dimpleplasty is now a thing.

I don’t know whether I am more flattered or horrified…

I mean, there are people who are willing to undergo surgery in order to get a feature I simply inherited from my dad, I should be somehow flattered, right?

WRONG!

Honestly, I’m just horrified(*). I mean, there are people who are willing to undergo surgery just so they can get some small indentations in their cheeks…

Blows my mind!

[(*) If you’re new here, you probably won’t know that sometimes I like being over-dramatic. I know that there are much more horrifying things going on in this world, but I’d rather not focus on those on this blog. So I like to distract myself (and hopefully you, my dear readers) by babbling on this sort of first world problems.]

So, recently I’ve been feeling better than last time we talked, but I’ve had a few little annoyances over the past month that have prevented me from working on the blog. Namely:

  • Lots of work at my day job.
  • SiteGround, my hosting company, decided that my blog was taking up too many resources on the server and subsequently limited them, so that my website was down for a few days until I somehow found a way to fix the issue.
  • I’ve been having some sort of allergic reaction to some lip product/ingredient, but still haven’t figured out what it is. At the moment I’m thinking it could be beeswax, which is found in 99.999999% of lip balms, including my beloved Nuxe Rêve de Miel and the two other lip balms I’ve tried to replace it with. My upper lip is incredibly chapped, cracked and even becomes numb when the dead skin gets really thick. I’ve just ordered a couple of beeswax-free lip balms (one from Crazy Rumors and one from Lush) to see if it’s really beeswax that’s causing the issue.

How have things been on your side of the screen? 🙂

    I’ve been really busy juggling between the extra shifts at work, the move and of course the normal family life and blogging has been taking a toll too. Shame about the sudden allergic reaction and I hope you will nail down the cause of it soon. And don’t get me started on dimpleplasty, it’s crazy what people would do in order to look their version of perfection. Little Tyke is born with a pair which I don’t know who he inherited from because my husband and I don’t have them and neither does anyone in both our family!

    I definitely need to incorporate more antioxidants into my skincare routine!
    (Lol I clicked on the link to dimpleplasty and I’m quite shocked too, I’m not against plastic surgery but I hate to see the word ‘trend’ next to it!)

    Dimpleplasty! What is the world coming to! Sorry to read about the allergic reaction. Life does have a way of getting in the way pretty often. Great product albeit the 90bucks set back.

    Wow, an allergy to beeswax? That sounds horrible! I do hope you found the culprit and things will get better, but wow, that would limit your choice of products.
    And dimpleplasty… I have no words. But I do have Juno in my drawer…

    Oh noooo that sounds really painful!! I hope your lips feel better soon!

    I LOVE this oil-I just have a little half-size bottle, but it is so hydrating. Like you, I can only use it at night!

    Sorry to hear about the allergic reaction! Hope you feel better soon! I’m staying away from facial oils for a bit as my acne got out of control again and I follow a less innovative routine these days. But sounds like it is a great product. As far as work stuff is concerned, I was lucky to be on holiday for a bit but unlucky to come back to such a lot of work that social activities and hobbies are so hard to fit in a day!!

    Dimpleplasty? Seriously… I wonder what’s gonna be the next trend! Oh no, I hope you are not allergic to bee wax :/ I’ve been quite busy with the new job and hadn’t had a time for blogging and now I’m trying to find some time for blogging, hopefully I will manage to do that 🙂

    I had a similar issue with siteground before too! Glad you got it fixed! Ugh, I have some products on my sunday riley wishlist and this is one of them! But I have so many facial oils that I can’t justify buying another one…or can I? 😀
