Winter Skincare Essentials: Facial Oils
I have already posted about the bath and body oils that I love so now I want to show you the face oils that I like.
I love using the oils in the evening before the cream, massaging it in. These days a lot of brands make oil with high quality ingredients that don’t break you out but moisturise and nourish your skin.
Estelle & Thild Rose Otto Facial Oil Dry, Mature Skin (£45)
This is an organic skincare from Sweden which a loving mother created for her daughters ( hence the name). It smells nice, moisturises and nourishes the skin without leaving it oily or greasy. This brand actually just launched at Zuneta so you can check it out there.
I also have two Angela Langford oils (£22.55 each).
Repair & Renew – Q10 & Vitamin E Face Oil
This is the one that I use myself, I massage two-three drops in the evening on my cleansed face and I can definitely see the difference in the next morning. It makes the skin smooth and radiant, without clogging pores or leaving an oily residue.
Balanced & Beautiful – Kiwi & Rosehip Face Oil
If you have an oily skin and was looking for a facial oil for your skin type – you may want to try this one. I actually gave it to my brother to try out as he does have oily skin (the things he has to do having me as a sister).
He reported that it feels nice on the skin, smells lovely and does not break him out and makes his face feel soft. He told me that he uses it several times per week in the evening. In the end, he was actually grateful I “made” him try it out for me and kept it as a part of his skincare routine.
Aromatherapy Associates Revitalising Face Oil (£37), read my rave here.
This is one of the best skincare products I have ever tried. It did” save” my face last winter.
I have to mention Elemis Cellular Recovery Skin Bliss Capsules (£62) as well.
There are 60 capsules with Moringa Oil that come in pink and green. You use pink (rose) in the morning and green (lavender) in the evening. These do make a huge difference in the way my skin looks, especially in the end of winter (think dried out with the lack of moisture).
It is also mess free and travel-friendly.
Next time I will probably get a face oil from Clarins, I am actually surprised I did not get it yet, as I love the brand.
