Fabulous natural face oils, put through their paces by our natural beauty expert
I am a self confessed Facial Oil fanatic. Moisturisers and masks have their place but these concentrated botanical blends penetrate more deeply into the dermis to tackle skin concerns swiftly. Try using them in a number of ways to suit your skin: beneath moisturiser, instead of moisturiser, mixed with cleanser, applied once or twice a day.
Best for Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Själ Saphire Concentrate £125
When the creators of Själ set about to create a skincare line their mission was to find the most cutting-edge and progressive anti-aging formulas at the same time as staying true to their holistic principles. They’ve spared no expense with this product - a potent blend of precious ingredients such as plant retinol to smooth skin’s surface, bio marine algae to fill fine lines and Himalayan blue sapphires for radiance. Believe me when I say that I expected a lot for such a high price point and wasn’t disappointed. My skin looked remarkably more radiant in a matter of days.
Best for Sensitive Skin and Redness
Darphin Organic Chamomile Aromatic Care £42
Many models and actors suffer with red, reactive complexions from having so much makeup applied and reapplied throughout the day. This is the one face oil I would never be without in my makeup kit because it instantly helps to calm down redness caused by hot camera lights. An absolute essential for sensitive complexions.
Best for Summer Skin
Decleor Aromessence Solaire Face Tan Activator Serum £44
A blend of Camomile and Geranium help to boost skin’s natural defences against the sun while Argan oil prevents skin from ageing. Start using this daily, one week before sun exposure and also apply beneath sunscreen. The carrot oil will help to promote an even and longer lasting tan.
Rodin olio lusso face oil £95
Dehydrated complexions (like mine) will love this face oil because unlike many products designed to boost moisture levels, it won’t overload the skin and make it feel greasy so it’s ideal for oily, dry and combination skins alike. It’s packed with eleven essential oils derived from flowers and includes uplifting Jasmine and cell strengthening rosehip. The scent alone is utterly divine.
Best for Hands and Nails
Sarah Chapman Overnight hand and nail treatment £35
I’m always looking for nothing short of a miracle in hand cream and consistently disappointed that nothing seems to improve the dry, crepy skin on my hands (occupational hazard). At least that was the case until I discovered this overnight wonder product. Omega and antioxidant oils promise to plump the skin strengthen the nails and even out pigmentation. I haven’t been using it long enough to see those kind of results yet but I can say that even after the first use I woke up to really soft, smooth hands…so I’m already impressed.
Best for Dry Skin
Anne Semonin Iintensive Complex Moisturising Essential Oils £61
Dryer Complexions should look no further than this super moisturising formula containing botanical castor oil, lavandin, mandarin zest and healing Egyptian basil. These oils can be used alone, beneath moisturiser or even mixed together with your regular shampoo to treat dry hair. (For best results, combine with Trace Elements Intensive Complex from the same range).
