The Best Facial Oil for Dry skin

The Best Facial Oil for Dry skin

During the colder times of year or super warm climates that can cause dry skin, we often look to add in that much needed extra moisture to our skin. Facial Oil are great for a super charged hydra boost. Keeping skin hydrated fights the signs of ageing and gives a flawless base for the makeup times!

Should I?

Facial oils can be an area of concern for some as it is believed they are thick, greasy and pore clogging. Today, facial oils are made specifically of super fine ingredients. They are made specifically to nourish, hydrate and treat the skin. For a person who suffers with acne prone and combination (oily/dry) skin, I swear by them. By adding 3 small drops to your routine could infact be the answer to your dry skin prays! Here is my skinformation stories Cold weather and its problem causing ways!   and The guide to radiant & youthful skin

It’s all about the money 

Combatting the dry skin this winter can cost as much or as little as you wish. Low cost does not mean low quality however the general rule of thumb is, the more the pay the more you get. Most higher end brands pack products full of high quality multipurpose ingredients whereas lower end brands strip things back to the natural ingredients that pack a punch. So basically it is all about personal preference. 

These are the best facial oil that will nourish your dry skin.

Low cost, superb quality 


When skin is extra dry, facial Oils are great to use for much needed moisturising or to add into your regular moisturizer to give it an extra boost.

    I have been loving facial oils for the past year. I think I have tried at least one new one a month. I have been obsessed with rose based oils lately, and have noticed a big difference in the tone of my skin. Great selection of oils!

    Great post! I think I want to try all of them.

  3. 16/10/2017 / 6:31 PM

    I don’t which I would try, My skin is odd. Its oily in the T zone but dry on my cheek bones and near the hairline. Do you think these could be used to togther in the focused areas?

    • 16/10/2017 / 7:16 PM

      Adding small amounts of oil to your skins routine has been known to help with reducing oil production. Your skin type sounds like mine and I use the ordinary 100% rose hip seed oil all over my face daily. My skin loves the stuff.

  4. 16/10/2017 / 6:40 PM

    I need to get my facial oil back out now that winter is coming, great suggestions

  5. 16/10/2017 / 7:10 PM

    I’m new to facial oils, but I’m in love with them already. Currently I’m using an amazing product from Bodhi & Birch (Desert Rose Facial Oil ) but I’d love to try the above mentioned avocado oil product or the Elemis one. They seem amazing too.

    • 16/10/2017 / 7:17 PM

      I’m very excited about trying out the avocado oil too! Rose oils are fabulous

  6. 16/10/2017 / 7:31 PM

    Thank you for the information! I have been wanting to test out facial oils, but wasn’t sure which ones to buy! The avocado ones sounds great!

    • 16/10/2017 / 7:35 PM

      I’m excited to try out this avocado one too the reviews are great. I’ve tried others in the past x

  7. 16/10/2017 / 9:53 PM

    So many good oils here! I love The Ordinary and Trilogy ones. Rosehip oil is great for so many skin types!

  8. 17/10/2017 / 1:30 AM

    I had a friend this past year who taught me about using pure, natural oils not only to moisturize but to cleanse the face as well. These are looking like some great options for healthy facial oils!

  9. 17/10/2017 / 1:37 AM

    ive used argan oil for several years on my hair and skin and i love it!

  10. 17/10/2017 / 6:37 AM

    I’d love to try the Ikarou Anti Age for mature skins. I’m finding the older I get the drier my skin becomes and any miracle juice that will make these wrinkles of mine look a little less wrinkly works for me 😉

  11. 17/10/2017 / 6:48 AM

    I honestly never tried facial oils before and you’re right, my perception of oils were that they were heavy and sticky. I didn’t know they were actually light. Parts of my face are oily (the t zone) while other parts ate really dry. Living in Vegas does not help. I actually want to try this. lotion doesn’t seem to moisturize enough.

  12. 17/10/2017 / 6:48 AM

    I’ve been using a homemade serum with grapeseed oil & essential oils for th last few weeks, mostly to combat acne. In the winter, I tend to have an issue keeping my skin moisturized. I’ve been wanting to try products from The Ordinary. I didnt know Yes To had Argan oil. I’ll hav to try it!

  13. 17/10/2017 / 11:49 AM

    I have a combination skin but I do apply facial oil in winter time. I really want to try the pixi one because I like all things ‘rose’ 🙂


  14. 17/10/2017 / 5:02 PM

    I’d love to try all of these oils! In fact I really enjoying trying any sort of new cosmetic or beauty product but my skin is shouting at me already, I have fairly oily skin so I think I will avoid these even though they look so indulgent and lovely! No fair, hehe 🙂

  15. 17/10/2017 / 7:09 PM

    I have combination skin, and used rose oil from Pixi, and it was really good for my skin.

  16. 18/10/2017 / 7:16 AM

    These look so nice. I also have combination skin and I love rose oil. Winter weather is especially hard on skin and oils can help alot.

  17. 18/10/2017 / 8:32 AM

    This has been so helpful! I am awful when it comes to buying or even knowing what to buy with skincare, I really love the sound of the Original one… thanks for sharing,

    What a great list! Some of these are definitely for me, my face is always dry! I think oils are great for your skin. It soothes it.

  23. 20/10/2017 / 11:26 PM

    The virgin avocado oil is something I would try simply because it seems more natural. I’m very picky with what I put on my face.
