I am a sucker for skincare products. I love trying out new products and especially when brands I love launch new product lines I can’t wait to try them even although my mirror cabinet is filled to brimming. Anyone with me here? 😉
I feel like there are more and more face oils popping up since a while. Many people might be sceptic when it comes to using oil on their face because it sounds like making it greasy and shiny by purpose. But fear not, face oils are way better than you might think and they can easily be mixed with your serum, moisturizer or foundation. If you don’t want to mix it, you should put on oil before moisturizing but after (or instead) using serum. There is a variety of face oils on the market and here’s a few that I’ve tried and liked.
This was my very first face oil that I bought and it was nothing like I expected. It sinks into your skin very quickly and works very well when mixed with a moisturizer. I loved using this in the morning and it smells SO good.
I bought this because I’ve read so many good reviews about it. This oil is a little heavier than others and needs a bit more time to get fully absorbed into your skin. There is no artificial fragrance added to it and the natural smell is very subtle. The Juno oil by Sunday Riley contains a mix of nourishing oils and I would also recommend to use it in the morning.
I came across this face oil by Sonya Dakar because one of my favorite bloggers (Jacey Duprie, the founder and editor of Damsel In Dior) mentioned it. This oil is purely organic – as it says in the name – and makes your skin glow instantly. The smell is very plant-like and I mostly used a few drops of this oil in the morning as well.
The Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil by Sunday Riley is a medicated dry oil to clear congested pores, treat and prevent acne as well as smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The texture of this oil is much thinner than other oils and the scent takes some time to get used to. I like applying this oil overnight so it can sink into my skin and – hopefully – clear it up.
This oil is a bestseller and it was recommended by a friend so I just HAD to get it. It has quite a strong scent but I actually love it because it’s perfect before going to sleep. The oil sinks into your skin quickly and you’ll wake up with restored skin in the morning.
