Facial oils have been all the rage these last few years and I can see why! I’ve tried so many over the years and my skin generally responds really well to oils. They are so moisturizing and I love that so many are made of great natural ingredients! Not all facial oils are designed for the same purpose, so I have five that I rotate in and out of my routine depending on my skin’s needs at the moment!
P.S. You may notice I was still pregnant when I took these photos. I really loved using facial oils while pregnant because they’re so natural!
My Top 5 Go-To Facial Oils

This oil instantly hydrated my dry, winter skin, and is super lightweight and non-greasy. Unlike some of the other oils I’ve tried. It also has a fresh, delicious citrus scent which I love and leaves my skin feeling fresh all day long!
This Australian-based oil is a true lifesaver so I totally get the name! It is full of antioxidants that tackles any dry patches or acne on my skin, and as a plus, it’s a completely clean product. It also is super affordable for how effective it is! I would highly recommend this oil!!
Rich in omega 3, 6, 9, fatty acids, and boosted with super vitamin C, this oil is ideal for improving the skin’s overall tone and texture. I love to put a couple of drops on my makeup brush before applying my foundation, which helps give me a flawless, airbrush finish. This might be the prettiest oil bottle I’ve ever put on my vanity too! Don’t you lose the rose petals?
Hands-down one of my favorite Kiehl’s products! I’ve used this oil in the past and have loved using it again in recent weeks! With the new baby, I am definitely not getting as much sleep at night, but when I apply this before I go to bed I wake up with my skin looking so awake and revived! It contains lavender and primrose essential oils, which have calming and moisturizing properties and as a plus, smell divine.
This affordable, 100% organic oil is great for sensitive skin and is scentless for those of you who are sensitive to smells. It is great for reducing any redness or oily skin. I like to add a drop or two to my daily moisturizer!
I’m always interested in trying new facial oils! Who doesn’t love super soft and moisturized skin?! Aside from oils, these are a few beauty products I would love to try! Have you tried any of them?
