Facial Oils are something I’ve only recently started properly incorporating into my daily skincare regime and I honestly don’t quite know how I managed without them! A while ago now I forwarded skincare goddess Caroline Hirons some pictures of my bare skin (which were quite honestly horrendous) and she gave me some directions on products I should be using and oils were one of them.
I wanted to share the three I’ve been using in my regime with you guys as I adore and fully recommend all of them!
Sunday Riley Artemis Hydroactive Cellular Face Oil:
This is the newest addition to my regime (and the most expensive at £95 a bottle) but one I have been seeing great benefits with! Artemis is aimed at confused combination skin (EXACTLY my face); oily, prone to blemishes, inflamed and dull, but this is anti-inflammatory which means it doesn’t break me out at all, in fact, when I apply it before bed my skin looks glowing and plump the next morning!
The only downside to this product in my opinion (apart from the large price tag) is the smell. It’s supposed to smell like lemons (which I love) but to me and Andrew it isn’t – he says it smells like men’s urinals!
Kiehls Midnight Recovery Concentrate:
I absolutely adore this bottle of goodness and it’s the one I use the most often! My skin somehow always looks a lot clearer the morning after using this. It smells great and you only need the tiniest bit to really make a difference.
Clarins Lotus Face Treatment Oil:
For those who are after a more affordable version of Artemis then have a look into this. It’s for oily/combination skin and made from 100% plant extracts.
How I use facial oils:
Just to let you know, I use facial oils around 4 times a week before bed after taking my makeup off! I pop a few drops on the palms of my hands, rub them together and then pat onto my face leaving me feeling really refreshed and hydrated before bed!
Do you use facial oils? What’s your favourite?
