Over the past year or so I have really tried to up my skincare game and that includes adding lots of new luxurious products to it. This post is a run down of all the facial oils I have tried and how they worked for me. I have combination skin so an oily t-zone and then dry patches around my eyes and nose, so I can have a love hate relationship with facial oils. As I have combination skin I favour this type of products in the evening so it can sink in over night and it doesn't highlight my oily t-zone under my makeup!

This is a serum/oil I have had for a while now and sort of forgotten about until recently in favour of a lot of these others. This is billed as a serum but does has an oily feel and has very similar properties, it is lightweight on the skin and sinks into it almost immediately. This contains Vitamin C which helps brighten the skin and even out the skin tone. Since this is so lightweight I can use it in the morning without the worry of greasy/shiny skin throughout the day.

I placed a pretty big Manuka Doctor order at the end of last year after hearing Kourtney Kardashian rave about the products and they had a good sale on. This facial oil is one of Kourtney's favourites and helps improve the look of the skin and it appears younger in just application. I have to say I'm not the biggest fan of the smell of this, I don't know what it is but it just doesn't appeal to me. I haven't noticed anything too amazing happen to my skin when using it but it does help replenish the moisture in my skin.

Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil | £22.00

I ordered this one during the Black Friday sales as i'd heard people rave about it and it seemed to be a cult product. Rosehip oil is known to condition the skin, enhance firmness and improve the look of skin damage, scars and fine lines. I find that this is probably one of the more thick oils in this post and the orange colour seems to be tint my face slightly. I have found that this has evened out my skin tone and helped my skin feel plumper.

Kiehls Midnight Recovery Concentrate | £38.00

This is definitely my favourite of the lot and I use it every night. This cult classic from Kiehls is a replenishing night time facial oil that contains distilled botanicals that help improve the look of your skin by morning. The consistency of this one is quite thin so it melts into my skin easily and I can either use it on its own or i'll add a moisturiser if my skin is suffering. Since using this I have found that in the morning my skin is brighter and refreshed and revived.

Nuxe Dry Oil Huile Prodigieuse Spray | £29.00

This is a multi use oil that I tend to favour for my body rather than my face but I will occasionally spritz my face with a light layer. It contains Tsubaki oil which is known for its anti-oxidant properties and helps shield your skin from pollution, perfect if you know your likely to be in a city for the day. It has quite a greasy formula but a light spritz means it doesn't turn my face into a greasy mess. It's also great if my skin is feeling a bit tight or dehydrated as a light spray adds some moisture back.

  2. I'm a huge fan of facial oils! I love rosehip oil generally and I've got the Pai though I haven't tried it yet. I can't wait though because it gets such amazing feedback. I really like Boots Botanics Rosehip too. Yes, the Nuxe is definitely better for body and hair xxx

  3. Are they watching strict hygienic standards? Do they change their gloves with every patient? Do they rinse their hands before touching your face or any facial instrument? Do they put on clean scrub suits? Is the area itself clean?
