I don’t know about you, but by the time Christmas is over, my skin is parched beyond belief…
My foolproof solution: Beauty Oils!
Only as of late 2015 did I start venturing off into oils, and it sucks I waited that long because every year prior, my skin would be insanely dry and irritated around winter. I’ve had the luxury of testing several oils now over the last three months and wanted to share my top favorites.
If you don’t find oils being hydrating enough, I recommend you go even further and top it off with a super moisturizing cream like something from La Mer or this Saturday Skin one, which I reviewed here.
It’s no surprise I’ve become an avid Tatcha user by now, and that’s because everything I’ve used has been gentle yet effective not to mention the beautiful packaging! This is a multipurpose oil, which can be disappointing because it’s quite small – you get 1 ounce – but on the upside, a little goes a long way. I find one drop to be plenty for my entire face and it skins in really nicely. It’s super calming, smells lovely, and most importantly, keeps my skin moisturized even through the brisk cold.
This product is especially unique because it’s not your expected oil – it’s a gel consistency that would make the perfect starter oil for anyone new to this category. It’s fast-absorbing and feather-weight. The only downside is that I don’t find it as hydrating as some of the other ones on here; however, a light layering of moisturizer does the trick! Normal, combo, oily skin girls who have patchy skin will definitely love this one! If you’re on the drier side, just know it’ll need some help.
I spoke of the Fresh Seaberry Oil before, but it remains a staple… Holy grail to be exact. I’ve decided to forgo eye cream altogether and use this one instead. It instantly enlivens the skin and gives a nice youthful glow. It’s pretty heavy, feeling greasy at first but goes undetectable once the skin soaks it all up.
I’ve still been using this Nuxe Oil on my skin every night and it’s the fastest absorbing of them all yet just as effective. I love this on my elbows and cuticles – takes care of all my dry patches! It’s best to apply this straight out of the shower! Thanks to this oil, I’m pretty much giving up on creams, lotions, and anything in that range. My only gripe is that I’m not in love with the scent, but it doesn’t linger so it’s not that big of a deal.
Of course, I have to mention the very first oil I ever used – the Divine Oil! My daughter loves this stuff (probably more than I do) – it soothes her eczema and the spray nozzle is just so convenient. It’s light, soothing, and moisturizing all at the same time; I alternate between this one and Nuxe. I’ve found the scent on this one more pleasant – it’s very relaxing especially after a long shower and the bottle lasts a super long time! Love love!
