Rebalancing and Rejuvenating Facial Oils, Part III

Welcome to the last installment of my three-part series on face oils. I hope you've learned a little bit about how important it is to keep your skin hydrated, nourished, and balanced. Hopefully, after reading about some of these products, you've conquered your fear of applying oil to your face. If I've left any of your favorites out, please let me know what they are!

Trilogy Rosehip Oil ($20) is what this company believes may be the answer to perfect skin. I haven't tried it, but I am certainly intrigued. It is believed that rosehip contains the nutrients and essential fatty acids necessary for great skin health. It's great for those with normal, dry, mature, sun-damaged, and sensitive skin since it also smooths away fine lines and restores the skin’s moisture balance.

For two more rebalancing and rejuvenating facial oils,

Vaishaly Night Nourisher (£65, about $125) is one of the lightest and best-smelling products I've ever tried. Made from organic ingredients, it is best suited for those with dry skin on the surface and combination to oily skin underneath. It contains high levels of lemon, bergamot, orange, petitgrain, and coriander, which are known to balance the skin.

In addition, it helps regulate oil production, decongest skin, calm irritation, and restore elasticity and skin tone. All products are available online and can be shipped to the US.

Decleor Aromessence Neroli Comforting Concentrate ($63.50) is best suited for those with normal to sensitive skin. All you need to do is apply a few drops to your fingertips, rub them together, and massage into your face and neck in the morning and night. This fragrant dry oil helps restore suppleness, softness, and moisture to your skin.

I would avoid This is Onurth Organic Skincare. I've had really bad experiences with their customer service.

One of my favorite companies is Caudalie, cosmetics based on the French Grape. They have lovely facial oils for Oily, Normal and Dry skin types. I have oily skin and I love the Purifying Contentrate: I will research thee other ones! Thanks

this year i bought honurth facial serum (which is made up of Essential oils of Organic Egyptian Geranium, Clary Sage and High Altitude Lavender in a base of Hazelnut Oil and Organic Macadamia Nut Oil) at the holiday fair in bryant park. it is amazing. i have worked it into my beauty routine, and it definitely helps my skin stay nice and moisturized in these dry winter months. it also helps prevent blackheads!! the creator of the products (she was a facialist at the plaza) said that the reason is because when your skin is moisturized, it can naturally get rid of those nasty little sebums that build up in the pores -- which lead to blackheads. it seems strange to get rid of clogged pores with oil, but it works. check it out at i want to try an oil cleanser as well. im not sure whether or not it will be laura mercier or shiseido though...thoughts?

I'm with estrela. I love Dr.Hauschka's Normalizing Day Oil. It works really well with my skin. Sometimes I layer it over their Rose Day Cream when I need extra protection (like in the winter).

I agree with Rumpel2 - the Clarins Lotus oil for oily/combo skin is amazing. Until I discovered it, I was constantly on the hunt for a moisturizer that would not make me break-out. It is a miracle product!!

i've been using sundari's essential oil for vata (dry) skin for several years now because it's worked wonders at keeping my dry skin moisturized without giving me acne. i just use it underneath my moisturizer every morning. it's a little pricey, but i only need to buy more once, maybe twice, a year.

I was always afraid to use facial oils becuase I thought they would make my acne worse. Then I found Enessa Clove Oil that fights cystic acne. My skin is moisturized and it helps my acne. I highly recommend it!

I love Dr Hauschka Normalizing Day oil which is actually for oily and blemished skin, but it doesn't make my skin very oily, it actually helps!

After all of these facial oil posts, I went to Trader Joe's and stocked up. I bought pure jojoba oil and Vitamin E oil, which is actually Vitamin E in a mixture of sunflower and coconut oils. They were about $4 each. For the past couple of nights, I have been mixing them, then massaging into my severely dry face, and following up with normal moisturizers and eye cream. The peeling isn't completely gone, but my face looks much better than before I started. Plus, they haven't made me break out one bit, which I was pleasantly surprised by, because even my dry spots are acne-prone, not to mention the oilier parts of my face. Anyway, I'm pretty happy with the facial oils, so thanks for posting these, Bella! :) Oh, and I've also been using pure tea tree oil instead of my usual benzoyl peroxide for preventing acne, and it seems to be doing the job without drying me out like the other stuff.

All of these things are expensive, and how do you know they will work with significant results? I'm too skeptical
