The buzzworthy beauty trend of incorporating face oils into your skincare routine stays here.

If you’re looking to add face oil to your daily skincare regimen, it’s important to determine what type of oil is best suited for your skin.

If you’re thinking “How do I choose the right oil for my face?”, we have got you covered. In this post, we’ll share the best types of face oils for the many different skin types out there.

Let’s dive in!


1. Best Face Oils for Oily Skin

If you have oily skin, you may find yourself questioning whether you should be using face oils in the first place.

With various rumours spread about face oils (or anything moisturizing) causing you to look greasy and break out, you’re bound to be confused.

However, know that these are only myths and face oils have proven to be beneficial for oily skin.

Want to give it a try? Check out the Leven Rose Organic Jojoba Oil.

100% pure, unrefined, organic Leven Rose Jojoba Oil is grown in Arizona and cold-pressed by using an expeller, which is a screw-like mechanism that presses out the oil (which is a wax) without heating the oil.

Not only does it make a moisturizing face oil, but it also:

  • Removes makeup
  • Acts as a moisturizer for body, face, and hair
  • Works as a massage oil


2. Best Face Oils for Dry Skin

Dry skin needs a lot of attention when it comes to hydration.

If you feel like all you do is apply moisturizer all day, you should invest in a face oil that will keep your skin hydrated and nourished.

Face oils generally stay on your skin longer than a face moisturizer. This is mainly because they can absorb better into your skin.

Seabuckthorn and rosehip oil are known to be replenishing when it comes to dry skin. Make a habit of opting for face oils that have these ingredients.

One of our go-to face oils for dry skin is the Badger Seabuckthorn Face Oil For Normal To Dry Skin.

Seabuckthorn Face Oil is a vitamin-rich, certified organic blend of precious plant oils formulated to moisturize and relieve normal to dry skin.

For best results, apply oil in the morning or at night right after cleansing. For a wonderfully meditative, relaxing ritual, take a few extra minutes to massage the oil into your face.


3. Best Face Oils for Acne-Prone Skin

Typically, acne-prone skin goes hand-in-hand with oily skin... but this is not always true.

People with different types of skin can also find themselves having to deal with acne.

If you regularly struggle with acne, tea tree oil may be the best face oil for your skin type.

A great product to try out is the Desert Essence Kinder To Skin Tea Tree Oil.

Be sure to dilute with water or oil and then test a small amount against clean skin on the forearm 24 hours before use.


4. Best Face Oils for Combination Skin

Oils such as argan oil work well with combination skin as they absorb into the skin quickly while also being rich in antioxidants.

One of our top-selling face oils suited for combination skin is the Mad Hippie Antioxidant Facial Oil.

Closing Thoughts

When choosing a face oil, make sure that you select a product that suits your skin type.

Don’t just indulge in buying the most expensive face oil. Instead, learn which one works for your skin. This will provide you with the best (and most noticeable) results!
