The Benefits of Facial Oils

I'm a huge fan of facial oils, I think they're the quickest way to get rid of any dry patches on my face and they're also great at preventing wrinkles. There's a big misconception about how people with oily skin can't use facial oils but that's rubbish. If you have oily skin, using an oil on your face won't give you even oily skin, it will likely balance out your skin. Using an oil on your face has huge benefits against aging and wrinkles as many of them are potent antioxidants and will slow down the aging process. Plus the majority of wrinkles are caused by dehydration so by adding an extra level of hydration onto your skin before your moisturiser you'll be preventing any wrinkles from developing.

A little trick is to apply an oil before any treatment products as it allows other products to penetrate deeper into your skin maximizing the effectiveness of the treatment. My all time favourite oil has to be the Clarins Blue Orchid Facial Oil. It smells divine and always leaves my skin feeling so hydrated and smooth. Others I like are the Caudalie Overnight Detox Oil, Pai Rosehip Oil and Trilogy Organic Rosehip Oil  but using any kind of oil on your face will significantly help your hydration levels.


  1. Nice selection miss! Facial oils are always a good investment coz they last very long :-).x

  2. I have an orange one, can't remember the brand. Collagen and something enhancing. It's lovely but I do like a thick night cream.
