Face Oils Face Off

Tuesday, 23 January 2018

You probably know this by now but I use more face oils than creams as they are way more nourishing. Whatever your skin types or concerns might be, you can always count on oils but there are literally hundreds of different types of oils on the market today, you want to make sure to get the right one so that you can benefit the most of it. 

I want to share with you my current favourite face oils so you get an idea of how they perform and if they are worth trying. Bear in mind that all of the oils I'm about to show you are organic and I think that's the most important thing before purchasing any oils, also make sure they are cold pressed for maximum nutrients. 

Before we start, I just want to mention that these oils are very similar when it comes to pricing. They are all ranging from 30 to 50-ish euros so there's something for every budget. I am someone that believes you get what you pay for, but that being said, I would never spend more than say, 70 or 80 euros for a small bottle oil, just personal preference I guess because these oils I'm about to show you are high-quality mid-priced facial oils that would do pretty much the same as those pricey ones. 

Let's start with Argan oils which are quite popular in the oil market. Argan oil is good for dry skin and ideal as a hair conditioner in my opinion. I use the *1001 Remedies Treasure Oil as a weekly hair treatment and it is amazing for that purpose. This is 100% pure argan oil and it's made in France. Great quality and it's good for all skin and hair types. I also got this* Golden Chocolate Oil by Bare Origin and let me tell ya, this is the best smelling argan oil I've ever tried. Again, this is good for all skin types and can be used on face, body and hair. The reason why I love these argan oils is that they are both light in texture, absorb quickly. You will never feel greasy or heavy with these. 

I want to take a moment and tell you the differences among these *MONO oils. I did a first impression post before but now that I have been trying them for the past a few weeks, I'm confident to say that I love them all. The Radiance oil has a light yellow colour and it's good for dull skin peeps. It gives the most natural glow you'll ever see plus it's crystal infused so it really lifts up your spirit and gives a positive vibe. The Rejuvenating oil has a gorgeous olive green colour and it's best for a dry/mature skin type. It's nourishing, hydrating and really plumps up the skin. As for the Sensitive oil, it's ideal if you suffer from sensitive skin hence the name as it does not contain any essential oils. It has this beautiful deep yellow almost orange colour, so pure and so nourishing without being heavy. I've been enjoying this mostly in the morning as it sits nicely under any foundations and I love that it's soothing as well. 

I've also been enjoying the Rose & Cucumber Cleansing Oil and although it's meant for cleansing the skin, I don't see why not using it as a normal face oil (I've tried it and it's pretty good). The cucumber scent makes it so calming and as a cleansing oil it does a brilliant job of taking off makeup, as a face oil, it's everything you would imagine a good oil can do. I don't use it every day because it's not one of those emulsifying cleansing oils, this is a good one to indulge in on a pamper night. I like to get a generous amount and really massage into my skin, wait for around 5 minutes, get a nice warm facial cloth to "steam" with it then wipe it off, honestly, it's such a feel-good product. 

If anti-ageing is your main concern in your skincare regime, I suggest trying oils with retinol or ingredients that provide fatty acids or something that could help boosting collagen production. Jodan Samuel √Čtoile is the perfect anti-ageing treatment oil that is not only light and enjoyable but also really helps to target those fine lines and wrinkles. It's probably the lightest oil in the bunch so you will need a moisturiser or a beauty balm layered on top. 

Another good anti-ageing face oil is this chia seed one by *Poppy's Skincare. It has a lovely orangey colour and the chia seed really helps to boost your collagen production as it is high in omega fatty acids. I love using it in conjunction with a facial massager for that plumped and smooth look. 

Now, the skin around the eyes are the most delicate part of the face as we all know so by using an eye oil can really help to smooth away the fine lines and brighten up the area. You can, of course, use any of the oils I just mentioned but I personally prefer a separate one just for that area. And for that, I recommend trying the Odacit√© Ba + S which is such a light oil serum that contains Baobab which is known for its nourishing and anti-ageing purpose. One drop for both eyes is all you need and I love that it also brightens up my eye contour area. You can also mix a drop into your favourite eye cream if you prefer and that's one of the main reasons why I love these little serum oils - multipurpose. 

So there you have it. I hope it has somewhat helped. Obviously, you don't need all of these, but I like to mix and match depending on the states of my skin. Anyhoo, if you need advice on what oil to get for different skin concerns or types just let me know, I'd be happy to help. 

What's your favourite organic face oils?
