This post is part 2 of a mini skincare series. If you missed it, part 1 is here. Until a few months ago, facial oils wasn’t something I had dabbled in but I’m so glad that I did. In this post I will discuss three different facial oils I have been sampling and trying out. These oils are something that I use as part of a routine, I use the same one every morning but occasionally mix it up in the evenings.
The first one I am going to talk about is from Ole Henriksen. This was in a beauty box that I’m subscribed to and I had never really been that into oils before actually trying this one and even though it’s only been a a short couple of months I have been using it, I feel like I can say this has already made a difference to my dry skin. Not only does it have an amazing orangey-zesty scent the formula of the oil is amazing. I have been using this mostly in the morning but also every other night and it doesn’t sit on the skin at all. I love that it absorbs straight away and leaves my skin feeling refreshed and replenished of moisture. This is a pricey product so if you are already in a happy place with your skin care routine I wouldn’t buy this until you next run out of your current oil nevertheless this is amazing.
The next oil I’m going to talk about is the LOreal Paris Extraordinary Facial Oil which I picked up in Boots. I would say this is definitely more of a night product because it is very heavy on my skin and for a while kind of sits on top of your skin. The scent of this is lovely and warming but I can’t see myself using this on a regular basis just because of how heavy this is. I’m also not sure how good for my skin this particular oil is compared to others that I use and love.
Lastly I have two The Body Shop facial oils that I want to talk about. Although I use and love Body Shop shower gels, body butters and other products I hadn’t actually ever tried any of their skincare or facial oil products so I decided to invest in one as I love their other products so much and I actually timed this so well because there was a spend £25.00 get a skincare set work £20.00 free! You really can’t get much better than that. I went for the Intensely Revitalising Facial Oil from the Oils of Life range. This is honestly one of those products that makes you feel luxurious and pampered. There’s so many beautiful ingredients in the oil it not only feel amazing on my skin it smell so good and herbal which makes it a lovely product to pamper yourself and indulge in.
Finally, the last oil I have been enjoying in the evening the one that came in the free skincare set in my order. This is the Vitamin E Overnight Serum-in-oil for 8 hours. This sinks into my skin so well, it has a much more floral scent than the Oils of Life product which is really relaxing. It’s also super hydrating which for me is always going to be a big bonus due to my dry skin issues. I also want to say how much the packaging is really pretty looks and looks nice and elegant on my bedside table.
Let me know what facial oils you use and when you use them!
