We’ll just come out with it: we’re addicted to face oils. These luxurious and beneficial skincare products have become a staple in our routine for the past few months and we figured it was about time we shared our favorites. After testing the facial oil waters, we’ve found these four are the ones we keep going back to time and time again.
Aesop Fabulous Facial Oil – We really love this one. So much so, it might actually be our favorite of the bunch. This oil feels (and smells) spa-like, which, as we’ve learned, not everyone appreciates (significant others are sure to comment on the new “smells” of your face oil – oops!). The Aesop oil is special because it can be used day or night and helps with SO many skin ailments from moisturizing dry skin to adding a bit of luminosity to helping with acne. It truly does it all and looks good underneath makeup so you can easily wear it during the day.
Sunday Riley Luna – This one is blue!! It’s crazy! We love it. The blue tint to it does fade away once you’ve rubbed it in, but we’ve found it to not fade away 100%, so we wouldn’t recommend wearing it during the day. The active ingredient in this (retinol) is proven to help with skin rejuvenation, but we’ve found this oil to accomplish so much more. Put it on at night to help soften fine lines, fade dark spots, hydrate, and plump your skin. The benefits are endless. For this one, we recommend starting with just a few nights a week if you’ve never used a retinol before though it really is a gentle one!
Josie Maran Argan Oil Light – We prefer the light version of this cult-classic, as it works better underneath makeup and seems to rub into the skin (rather than sit upon it) a bit more easily. This multi-purpose oil is good for hair, skin, and nails, so it’s our favorite oil for travel.
MV Organics Rose Oil – The entire MV range is one of our absolute favorite skincare lines (we’ll get into more of the products soon!), but this rose oil truly stands out. It smells incredibly like roses and immediately brightens your face when you apply – you only need 3 drops for your whole face, so use sparingly! The range is also completely organic (hence the name) and full of good-for-your-skin ingredients only. This one is typically reserved for special treats, as it feels really luxurious to use.
Of course, you don’t need 4 face oils in your rotation, but being the beauty lovers we are, we like to keep something on hand for every skin gripe imaginable.
