Regular reader will already know just how much I love facial oils – they’re hydrating and protecting, and usually packed with natural ingredients and antioxidants to illuminate the complexion. While oils may sound too heavy for daily use, you’d be surprised at how light weight they feel on the skin – most of these oils aren’t as heavy as regular creams!
If you’re new to the world of oils, or just looking to find your new favourite, here’s 5 of my must-have essentials:
Hutton & Lynne’s Regenerative Facial Oil
A rich blend of luxurious pure regenerative oils, Hutton & Lynne’s Regenerative Facial Oil has been developed to help skin reset to its natural state of luminosity. Formulated to tone and nourish dry and damaged skin, soften stretch marks and scars, and brighten dullness and dark circles this oil is ideal for anyone who may be prone to blemishes, or have scaring from previous skin concerns. I like to use this as part of my evening routine, applying it over a vitamin c serum to intensely hydrate skin, allowing it to heal over night.

Dr Botanicals Japanese Orange Superfood Facial Oil
Designed to revive and boost skin, Dr Botanicals Japanese Orange Superfood Facial Oil is a blend of botanical extracts. Rich in vitamins A & C, and fatty acids, it thoroughly hydrates the skin and nourish the complexion while helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, making it a must-have for those concerned by the signs of premature aging. In terms of texture and application, this is more like a serum than a oil, and it light enough to be used in the day with no shine or greasy residue.
Purepotions Skin Salvations Cleansing Oil
Oils don’t just harness the power of hydration, they can also be used to cleanse the skin! 100% natural, Purepotions Omega Rich Cleansing Oil has been formulated with a luxurious combination of rich, effective, botanical oils to gently cleanse and moisturise the skin. Plant and seed-based oils melt away makeup and impurities on the skin, before emulsifying with water, leaving skin refreshed, yet intensely moisturised. So much more gentle than traditional methods, oils are the way forward when it comes to cleansing!
