Beauty oils seems to be the ‘it’ thing lately when it comes to beauty. When you talked about skincare and all things related to beauty, at the end of the day, what matters most is the ingredients and efficacy. Oils seem to have the most concentrated vitamins, antioxidants and rich in essential fatty acids. The way I used to see it, oils – because of its texture – will only work for dry skin. I was proven wrong when I read few of the threads regarding oil-related products. Quite few people with oily skin find it useful and see vast improvements after they’re using certain oil products. It’s probably due to the better oil distillation nowadays, making beauty oil to no be thick and difficult to absorb. These days, beauty oils go beyond than just Olive oil.
So, here it is, four beauty oils that I’m dying to try!
1. Josie Maran Argan Oil ($14 for 0.5 oz at Sephora)
Argan oil has been buzzing in our forum for quite some time, many have proven their efficacy and Josie Maran’s is one brand that is highly recommended. So, trusting my fellow skincare aficionados at the Female Daily forum, I’ve just placed a PO on this product. Hailing from Morocco, this natural oil known for its multitasking benefits in hydrating and nourishing the skin. It work wonders to both dry and oily skin. Surprisingly, people seems to use it to treat acne as well. Maybe due to its healing property. It can be used to treat skin, split ends and also softening cuticles.

2. Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil ($24 for 20ml from Trilogy)
Thanks to Lautbiru, who have introduced me to this brand and its miracle. I’m now very much intrigued by its promises. As it happens to be, only moments after I learnt about this oil, Rosehip Oil thread was born on our forum. I sense that it’s going to be the next big thing, and I might as well dive into this new wave. Trilogy Rosehip Oil has garner really good review, thus, the reason why I choose this one.
Rosehip oil has been proven to improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks, wrinkles and dry skin. It caters to many skin concern including ageing, dehydration (both for dry and oily skin) and uneven skin tone – the last two were my main concerns. Contains Omega 3 and Omega 6 Essential Fatty Acids that will moisturize dry skin and improve both skin’s softness and elasticity. In addition, the Beta-carotene will help to nourish the skin to assist skin renewal and repair process.
3. Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Usage Dry Oil Splash ( £16.50 for 50ml from Escentual)
Top models’ favorite, Nuxe is a French drugstore brand well known for the efficacy of its products. I have high respect for French drugstore skincare products, though they’re more expensive than most. This oil contains six plant oils: borage, St. Johnswort, sweet almond, camellia, hazelnut and macadamia. On top of that, this oil product is rich in Vitamin E, known to soften the skin. Promises to moisturize, softens and regenerates skin-cells.
4. The Body Shop Shea Beautifying Oil ($25.95 from The Body Shop)
I have just found out that The Body Shop in the U.S. just launched a beautifying oils collection, which is pure heaven. I would have rolled myself in heavenly chocomania or brazilian nut oil – favourite range of mine – , if they’d produced one, sadly they don’t. But I’m always fond of Shea, because of its hydrating and skin barrier ability. Having quite a dry skin, I would love to salve my skin with this, to replace my body lotion. It contains shea butter, marula oil, sweet oil and kukui nut oil. What I would love the most is of course the nutty scent of it.
There goes my list. Have you tried any of the beauty oil I mentioned above? If you have, please do give me your comment because it will help in my purchasing decision.
