Face oil


I have been using olive oil in my hair and coconut on my body for a long time. I am glad that the cosmetic use of oil is becoming more popular. And with that many new face oils now available, i wanted to try some.  I used Nuxe Huile Predigiuese before, but only in summer to give me a glow. I ordered several samples from spiritbeautylounge.com. To test them I put them on my face in the morning without adding anything else for at least an hour.
I have been pleasantly surprised by most of them. And these three really stood out:
DR. ALKAITIS Nourishing Treatment Oil
ILA Face oil for Glowing Radiance
and
RMS BEAUTY Beauty Oil

When i started doing more research I saw that all three contained Rose hip oil. That sold it for me. Not that I knew anything about the benefits. I just happen to love rose hips.
I grew up in this beach town where every street was lined with their bright pink flowers. For nostalgic reasons I even planted a rose hip in my French garden. It is the one plant that I always check to see if how much it has grown. I already knew that Rosehips contained an enormous amount of Vitamin C. In Holland parents give their children syrup and jam made from from rose hips  exactly for that reason.
Then I started doing research. The oils of rosehip not only has a high amount of Vitamin C but it is unique among vegetable oils in containing also Vitamin A, as in retinol.  Now I have been using Retin-a  combined with Skinceuticals CF Ferulic acid for a long time.  It seems that rosehip is a good combination of the two, no wonder my skin looked so good after using it.
The oil helps with fine lines and pigmentation. Now I have to say that it concerned me a bit to put something on my face that contains Retinol during daytime.  I plan to continue using it, but at night and during day with a strong sunscreen.
From the all the oils I used RMS BEAUTY beauty oil was my absolute favorite. It smelled incredible, like another Dutch favorite,  called Bastogne candy sugar cookies.
A more economic option would be to buy pure Rosehip oil, and mix it with olive oil. Because of the purity I would use this only at night. You can buy it here and here.
Do you also use face oil, if so which is your favorite?

  4. I'm always wary of putting oils on my face–my skin is super sensitive and I break out pretty easily. I might have to try again, though...your reviews have convinced me!

  20. That's a good beauty post! I have never used face oils, but I'm always open to trying something new! I love Ole Henriksen as a moisturizer and I'm obsessed. That works wonders and I never break out anymore! But I'll definitely look into face oil and get back to you!

  29. Simona, I'm so glad I found your blog, it is gorgeous! I actually don't really use oil on my face but a few weeks ago I tried bio oil on my face before I went to bed - and in the morning, it looked amazing! I'm quite partial to trying face oils now :)

    1. If I understand correctly you cleaned your face with olive oil, no? I find that olive oil needs a cleanser to get off, shampoo for hair and soap for face, and it would clog pores. I use it on my face once in a while, on body it is quite good, especially if you make a scrub, on hair it is great!

  37. Really interested to try out the RMS Beauty oil, I have used Dr Alkaitis and Ila ones in the past too.. how is the RMS in comparison to the others.. is it heavier? is it easily absorbed?

    Thanks!

    1. It is lighter, very easily absorbed, more than the others, the smell is really good, and it made my skin look better almost immediately. This one was my favorite, next dr. Alkaitis and than Ila.
