The Battle of the Face Oils

I only recently discovered the wonders of facial oils and have been completely converted. I love using oil on my face instead of a moisturiser a few times a week to give my skin an extra boost and some much needed moisture. I currently have 3 favourite facial oils which I alternate between depending on my needs.

The first facial oil I bought was the Champneys Moisturising Facial Oil, which as you can see, is very well used. I love this oil for everyday use, and often add a drop to my usual moistursier to give an extra bit of moisture. This one is really soothing and simple and smells delicious. It has quite a rich texture so you only need a tiny drop for your face. Therefore, it lasts forever. I have had this bottle for about 2 years now and it is still going!

The second oil I use is the Kiehls Midnight Recovery Concentrate. This is more of an elixir and not as 'oily' as the other two. I often use this before applying a moisturiser as well at night time as I find it is not quite moisturising enough on its own. The oil is described as "a replenishing elixir of pure essential oils and distilled botanicals to visibly restore the appearance of skin by morning." I use this by putting 2-3 drops on my hands then rubbing them together and breathing the smell in deeply before patting it gently into the skin. The natural scent is so relaxing and always helps me to sleep. I would highly recommend it as a weekly treatment for tired or dull skin.

And finally, I have saved the best 'til last. My all time favourite facial oil is the Antipodes Divine Face Oil with Avocado Oil and Rosehip. This is an absolute hero product of mine and works wonders on tired, dull skin. I use this before bed after cleansing my face instead of a moisturiser. I 'push' it into my skin rather than rubbing as this helps it to penetrate further. I always wake up with glowy, soft skin the morning after and my face feels bright and fresh all day. I use this about 2 or 3 times a week or whenever I need a boost.

Have you tried any of these oils?

  1. You will find absolutely no unique knobs for that rolex replica as well as 116520, regrettably. In most cases, any kind of pre-owned Rolex Daytona buy increases within worth for that near future within the last 5 many years, the actual stainless rolex replica uk has already established an astonishing rolex replica sale put into it's RRP. Not surprisingly, versions within gold and silver don't advantage very just as much within the residuals division, as well as garish variations like hublot replica cost particularly badly, however they are the actual conditions. Extractor curiosity centers mainly rolex replica sale the stainless iterations, as well as that's in which the greatest opportunities lay. It's simple to claim that the actual replica watches sale offers fairly dropped upon it's ft provided it's underwhelming earlier overall performance which should have experienced this consigned towards the webpages associated with background, however the wider look at shows which Rolex may be especially smart within producing lots of its good fortune through the years.
