I have dry skin, so am a great believer in using face oils to nourish and hydrate the skin. Face oils are now lightweight and fast absorbing. When I need a hydration fix, I apply before moisturiser in the daytime, mix with foundation and also apply nightly. Using sparingly sorts my dry skin out a treat and injects a much needed boost of moisture to the face.
I like to use face oils 2 or 3 times a week. Currently my skin is dehydrated and sensitive. Unusually I also have a couple of spots at the time of writing this, but these 3 oils seem to work a treat to help combat the problems I have:
Hearing such great reports about Rosehip oils from other bloggers, when Ooh! asked if I would like to try their version I jumped at the chance. The texture of this odourless oil is light and only 2-3 drops are needed. Using this alone or in conjunction with the other oils featured in this post, works just as well. I used this product alone for 2 weeks and the texture and health of my skin improved generally. I am keen to use this over a much longer period of time, as the ingredients packed into the bottle are said to regenerate tissue, healing scars and stretch marks. Just what I need to try to reduce the small scarring I have on my nose.
Ingredients include: Vitamin A, Vitamin K, Linoleic Acid, Oleic Acid
Another ultra-lightweight oil from Ooh! Again unscented, I didn't notice much difference between using the Cacay Oil to the Rosehip. It's another lovely oil, which is super hydrating. Catered to more mature skin types, I wouldn't let this put those of you off with younger skin. For the days when my skin is particular dry, tired, dull or just not quite feeling it, this is the oil I will use. It really packs a punch, to leave skin feeling hydrated with a certain glow and no greasy residue in sight.
Ingredients include: 100% Caryodendron Orinocense Nut Oil.
I love both oils. However for the price difference, I didn't really notice that much difference to my skin.
For the nights I need a little help, I apply a few drops of this ten minutes before bed. I massage the oil into my cheeks, forehead, nose and chin and then push any remaining product into the skin. For the evenings my skin feels particularly parched this is the one I always go to. It's heavy duty stuff and an old favourite! For the full review head here.
Do you have any favourite facial oils? Do those I've mentioned feature?
