Sunshine Elixir – Antioxidant Face Oil

5.0 (14 reviews)


Sunshine Elixir – Antioxidant Face Oil

Do you have dry skin patches, sun spots, or lack some glow? Then, my new plant-based face oil may be just the ticket. I infuse my homegrown calendula, comfrey root, and marshmallow root with organic turmeric and hibiscus flowers into organic jojoba oil. I then added organic pomegranate oil, avocado oil, rosehip oil, castor seed oil, bakuchiol (2%), helichrysum essential oil, carrot seed essential oil, rose essential oil, ylang-ylang essential oil and vitamin E.

This is a heavier, more nourishing oil for mature skin types.


Sunshine Elixir – Antioxidant Face Oil is perfect for sun-damaged skin.

I created this blend last winter (2022) when I found my Rosehip & Jojoba Face Oil, which I have loved and used for the past nine years, wasn’t moisturising enough. 

As we know, skin changes over time, and I’m heading into my late 40s and started having drier skin for the first time ever!  I started creating in the studio with the plants I know to exhibit anti-inflammatory properties and bursting with natural antioxidants.   

I macerated into organic jojoba my homegrown calendula, comfrey root, and marshmallow root with organic turmeric and hibiscus flowers. I then added organic pomegranate, avocado, rosehip, castor seed, bakuchiol (2%), helichrysum, carrot seed, rose, ylang-ylang essential oils, and vitamin E.

Anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties are essential to the skin as they may help; 

  • reduce the appearance of wrinkles, sun spots, acne and scars,
  • even skin tone, 
  • reduce redness, and 
  • protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals. 

After applying ROSE FACE MIST for hydration, apply 3-5 drops of Elixir onto fingertips and press into wet face and neck.  Apply it directly onto healed scars or sun spots. The elixir is very darkly coloured due to the high levels of carotenoids and the plants’ freshness, but I found my skin absorbs the colour quickly.

If you aren’t a fan of the glow it leaves on your skin, add a few drops of the elixir to your face cream, then apply. 


When I ran the price analysis on this, the 20ml bottle should be $105, but to help keep it affordable, I lowered it to $74, which still seems expensive to me. Still, I have to take all the ingredients and do the extensive work involved in gardening, growing, harvesting, and preparing herbal oil.  I must remind myself that many other skincare companies give a lot less but cost way more – so I have to try to honour my process.

    Love this oil, it’s thick and luxurious but still absorbs beautifully. Love the vibrant bright yellow colour too, it really feels packed full of goodness.

  2. Julie

    Absolutely amazing product . Reduces redness, helps repair an sooth rough skin patches and absorbs well into skin . I tend to combine a few drops with my face cream at night as a night moisturiser .

  3. Lisa

    Love this product! Oil feels lighter than the other oils and absorbs into my skin fast, I use it at night and my skin feels amazing in the morning with its own glow.

    I love this oil. I put it on after my shower and within minutes my skin is glowing. Its made a couple of dry spots disappear completely. Thanks Sharyn and Plant & Share. I love it!!!

    Wow! This oil is outstanding. I’m one of those people who loves to try new products and I especially love anti ageing products. I know about bakuchiol as a natural retinal substitute so I was super excited to try this new oil (I have sub spots that need attention). It feels so good on the skin and under makeup. Non greasy, absorbs well and smells divine. I’m a convert! PS the pricing is insane – too cheap in my opinion.

    Love this oil. It smells good and my sensitive skin loves it too. I naturally have dry skin and this oil has worked really well keeping it hydrated.

    This oil is next level amazing! I use Plant and Share products only for years now, and I always get compliments on my skin. This special oil is particularly nourishing, and reducing those cheeky wrinkles starting to team up around the eyes with aging. I absolutely love how it makes my skin glow and leaves it lush and nourished. Thank you so much for creating this product, you have a customer for life!!!

    I am loving this oil – I have quite sensitive skin and this doesn’t bother it at all.
    I use it mostly on the dry areas on my face and afterwards it is like it has that sun glow
    look. The smell is amazing too – love it!

    I’ve only been using the Sunshine Elixir for a short while and have noticed the redness on my face lessened and my skin looking more even.
    At first I thought I may’ve been imagining it, because how can an oil work that quickly?
    Apparently it does, because I’m now not needing to use any foundation to cover the red sensitive areas.
    Also loving how my skin is feeling softer and more nourished.
    I wanted to try the Sunshine Elixir because of the power packed skin healing ingredients…so glad I did.

    Plant and Share are the only products I use for my skincare and I knew this oil would be better for my more mature skin, which was why I made sure to use up my current oil before trying the liquid gold sample. It is amazing, thick and definitely luxurious.

    I’m in love with this Sunshine Elixir! I tried a sample, and it has been so nice on my very troublesome skin. I’ve always struggled to find something that I want to continue purchasing for my skin, but I didn’t hesitate to purchase a bottle of this after my sample ran out. It’s such a lovely oil and it goes on so nicely, the smell is divine and my skin is actually looking very nourished. So pleased I tried this – thank you Sharyn for creating such beautiful products! x

    Sunshine oil my new favourite! It’s thick, rich, smells amazing & absorbs beautifully. You only need a few drops to feel all the goodness & be left with a healthy glow!

  13. Brooke (verified owner)

    Dry spots just disappear. You know it’s working when you forget to use it. I have oily skin, but this sunshine elixir doesnt make my skin oily at all. I wish could afford to use it all over my body.

    Am nearing the end of my generous sample so have just purchased the full size. This stuff really is the best facial oil, my ray of sunshine that leaves me glowing! Thanks Sharyn
