Finding The Right Face Oil For Your Skin

The latest trend to take the beauty world by storm? Facial oils! It seems like we’re seeing these beautifying elixirs pop up just about everywhere. Whether you have dry, combination, or oily skin—there’s a facial oil for every skin type. Even better? These nutrient rich face oils address dozens of common skincare concerns—from skin tone and acne, to dryness and anti-aging. If your interested in trying a face oil but aren’t sure where to start—you’re in the right place! Incorporating a beneficial facial oil into your beauty routine is easier than you think.

Oil On-the-Go

A busy schedule can have an impact on your skincare regimen. With little-to-no time to spare, we love using beauty products that keep up with us. Rodin Olio Lusso Luxury Face Oil Stick can be easily stored in your bag without the risk of spilling, making it perfectly portable. Inspired by Rodin’s original liquid Jasmine & Neroli Luxury Face Oil, this cruelty-free stick has 11 essential oils plus natural butters that work to keep skin looking smooth and glowing. Simply glide the stick over cleansed skin morning, evening, or anytime you need a touch of moisture.

For Oily, Acne Prone Skin

If the word “oil” makes you a little nervous—you’re not alone. For those of us with combination, oily, or blemish prone skin, we’ve been conditioned to stick to “oil-free” products that leave skin thirsty and dry. The key to beautiful skin? Balance. Caudalie Vine[Activ] Overnight Detox Oil is an innovative, skin-renewing dry oil that detoxifies and regenerates skin cells while you sleep. Simply apply six drops to clean skin each evening (either alone or before moisturizer) and wake up to a smooth, glowing complexion.

This face oil can be also be added to your nightly routine (again, before serums or moisturizers) so skin regenerates as you sleep.
