You're STILL Not Using a Face Oil?
Move over moisturizer! Face oil has officially shifted from a skincare trend to a medicine cabinet staple in a matter of year. And for good reasons! Face oils hydrate without a greasy finish and nourish skin with a list of antioxidants and natural emollients. Plus, now that they have gone mainstream, there’s a huge variety of options at different price points and scents.

OK, we admit this one isn’t new, but Rodins’ Luxury Face Oil ($150) is the most luxurious face oil you will ever try. This cult classic has a light rose scent, absorbs quickly, and gives skin a dewy glow. Use it alone, or mix it with your foundation for a luminous finish.
Perfect for sensitive skin, Caudalies’ Polyphenol C15 Overnight Detox Oil ($52) works to eliminate toxins and detoxify skin without any added fragrances or preservatives. For best results, use the 100 per cent plant-based formula at night, which allows your skin the necessary time to eliminate dead cells and free radicals.
Ila’s Face Oil for Glowing Radiance ($110) is filled with essential fatty acids and antioxidants that work together to regenerate cells. You can apply in the morning as a base for makeup, or as an overnight treatment.
We mentioned L’Oreal’s Age Perfect Hydra-Nutritional Glow Renewal ($20) a few months back when it first hit stores, and it's proving to have major staying power! With multiple uses, ranging from priming your skin for foundation, to an overnight treatment, this formula is as versatile as it is effective.
Full of natural retinols, vitamins, essential amino acids, and omegas 3, 6, and 9, Sunday Riley’s Juno Hydroactive Cellular Face Oil ($125) creates a luminous complexion and a youthful glow. This oil absorbs quickly, calming irritations and softening fine lines, and is suitable for all skin types.
Another natural option, the Drunk Elephant Virgin Marula Luxury Face Oil ($72) hydrates and heals skin with no added chemicals or fragrances. Blotchiness and redness are noticeably reduced, as are fine lines and wrinkles, thanks to a list of antioxidants from the namesake marula fruit.
Probiotics and peptides work together in Aurelias’ Probiotic Skincare Cell Repair Night Oil ($70) to create radiant skin, while also fighting signs of ageing. Bonus? It’s also gluten-free.
Origins Plantscription Youth-Renewing Face Oil ($50) is formulated to repair the outer layers of skin while simultaneously smoothing fine lines. The 20 precious oils work to calm skin, leaving a youthful, refreshed glow.
Our own Katherine Power turned us onto the Shiva Rose Face Oil ($85)—and she is definitely onto something! Holistic blogger Shiva Rose developed the formula with all-natural ingredients to nourish any skin type.
