A skincare product that I have been loving is facial oil so I have been experimenting with a selection of them and have found three that I absolutely love.

I am so excited to be introducing you to my three favourite facial oils in this post and letting you know what is so great about them. Hopefully you can find a new product to try from this post, especially if you struggle with dry skin like myself. 

Cosmia Purely Radiant Elixir
This one has the thinnest formulation out of the three, making it a very lightweight oil. This is a concentrated blend of balancing oils - primarily Acai and Goji. This antioxidant boost to the skin really plumps, hydrates and brightens. After using this I feel as though it is actively working on my skin and I see visible results. This product retails for $49.01 and is available from here.

Sukin Nourishing Chia Seed Oil
Now this is a unique one because I have never before seen a chia seed face oil so have loved experimenting with this one. This is quite a watery formulation but this is great for a more lightweight option. You could even wear this underneath makeup and it won't affect it. This product retails for $19.95 and is available from Chemist Warehouse here. It is the cheapest of the three but I do feel like it is slightly lower quality than the other two. This isn't necessarily bad because it just means it is less intense, perfect for just starting out with oils.

Linden Leaves Miraculous Facial Oil
This is the oil that I have had the longest and gotten the most use out of. It is most comparable to the Cosmia feel on the skin but has a bit of a thicker and creamier formulation. This one really makes your skin feel intensely hydrated and nourished. It is a mix of white tea and rose hip oil which is a beautiful combination that I feel works really well together. This face oil is the most expensive out of the three, costing $64.99 and available from here.

The reason I love using oils is because of how nourished and hydrated my skin feels. As someone with slightly dry skin, wrinkling is a huge concern for me and with oils I feel as though they are intensely working to prevent this.
