Face Oils are amazing. Not only will it change your life, it will absolutely change your skin. Your skin will look and feel better. You will probably need less makeup. And you will probably need fewer skincare items altogether. I use face oils all year round because of my dry/combo skin but when the weather gets colder, my skin needs extra hydration and moisture. I like mixing face oils in my serums and moisturizers for both my daytime and nighttime routine. You can also use a face oil as a last step in your skincare routine. Today I want to share three facial oils I’ve been rotating on a daily basis for the last two plus months.
These oils do not contain any synthetic fragrances, parabens, phthalates, or artificial colors. All ingredients are naturally derived. They are from a skincare brand that comes to us from London, call Rosalena. I first heard of this brand through reading a couple blog posts from some of my favorite bloggers and won the Frank & Sense oil during a blogger giveaway. I was so ecstatic due to the raving reviews of how good the oils were and I must agree. All their oils are packaged in a beautiful glass bottle that comes with a little dropper.
Rock & Rose*
A natural radiance booster, enriched with vitamins to rejuvenate, illuminate and energise skin. Antioxidant rich to restore elasticity, lift, tone and brighten complexion.
This oil has powerful antioxidants to revitalize and illuminate tired and dull-looking skin. A slightly darker version of Beauty & The Beast, this oil has a floral Jasmine scent. With ingredients such as Rosehip Oil, Coenzyme Q10, Prickly Pear Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Safflower Oil, and Vitamin E, it gives a beautiful radiance and glow to the skin and really nourishes and hydrates. For my nightly skincare routine, I alternate between this one and Frank & Sense.
Beauty & The Beast*
A vitamin infused unisex oil that’s instantly absorbed into the skin, leaving it hydrated, toned, soothed and 100% shine-free. Ideal as a pre-makeup primer or a post shave calmer.
Antioxidant loaded, these bio-active ingredients are instantly absorbed, leaving skin hydrated and plump. It contains oils like Watermelon Seed, Grapeseed, Rosehip Seed, CoQ10 and Apricot Kernal. It’s a lighter yellow oil and this one I use mainly during my morning skincare routine. I find it to be the lightest of the three so it’s perfect to use daily. It’s a quickly absorbed oil that sits fine on the face underneath make-up and doesn’t leave a greasy residue like some oils do.
Frank & Sense
A multi-seasonal replenishing face oil to rehydrate, repair and nourish skin. This oil is especially effective as an after sun repair and to combat the drying effects of winter.
Of the three oils, this is my favorite because I find it more hydrating on my skin. It’s a nourishing and hydrating oil that contains organic essential oils such as Frankincense, Sandalwood Mysore, Cape Chamomile, Neroli and Rose Otto; that feed the skin and help with plumping and skin glow. The natural anti-inflammatory ingredients can tame redness, calm skin, rehydrate and repair leaving with you a healthy glow. Rich in colour and texture, this oil is slightly heavier than the other two but it leaves no residue, sinks into the skin immediately and offers a subtle herbal scent that instantly calms the mind and body.
What I like about these oils is that they sink into the skin and doesn’t leave you greasy. I highly recommend you check these out as they are by far some of the best facial oils I’ve personally used. I’ve become a huge fan of Rosalena and also adore their Goodness & Tonic Face Mist and Lip Conditioning Balm.
