My love for face oils is no secret. I live for rose oil and have dubbed oiling up to be my preferred way to shoot moisture into my borderline desert dry skin. And while I have tried a lot of oils out there (seriously, so many products), there are a few facial oils I have heard great things about that I have yet to get my hands on. Here’s what’s on my wish list.
- Caudalie Polyphenol C15 Overnight Detox Oil – I have the Caudalie Premier Cru The Elixir and am borderline obsessed with it (seriously, I ration the stuff). So the idea of an overnight oil that will rid my skin of all the crap it comes in contact with during the day made by the same guys? Sign me up. Worth noting, this one is a dry oil, so it is not meant to be a moisturizing product. Good news for oily or combination skin users who are afraid to venture into the face oil arena.
- Sunday Riley Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil – Sunday Riley doesn’t just have one face oil, they’ve got an entire line of them. No matter what your skin type or concern, they have something that claims to correct it. And while 50% of me just wants a collection of these super chic bottles on my vanity (you know you do, too…), I’ve also heard amazing things about their effectiveness. I desperately want to try the Luna Sleeping Night Oil (you guys, it corrects wrinkles overnight…literally), but I’ll likely try the Ultra-Clarifying Oil first because I’ve heard such great things about what it does for your pores.
- La Mer Renewal Oil – I know, I know. This oil is a whopping $240. But hear me out. If this concoction is to face oils what La Mer’s Perfecting Treatment is to primers (more on this real life pretty filter coming soon), then I need it on my face. Immediately. Please tell me someone out there has tried it and it is everything I think it is…
- Fresh Seaberry Moisturizing Face Oil – This one is on the more affordable side (a bonus considering how expensive these oils can get) and is for those of us with dry skin who need a little pick me up. It claims to provide moisture for 24-hours. And considering winter is fast approaching (hello, even drier skin), as far as I am concerned that is a claim worth investigating.
