Facial Oils: Are they Good or Bad?

December 10, 2015

I have a small obsession going on for a while now. I am crazy in love with facial oils! It's true! I love splattering them on my face before I go to bed.

I don't think they are bad for my oily skin either. In fact, facial oils contain important fatty acids which are essential to keep my skin hydrated. Sebum (the one which clogs our pores and causes breakouts) on the other hand is produced if our skin's natural oils aren't balanced.

If you are guilty of overcleansing, then you should know that our skin just to compensate for that, produces more oil in the end. When skin is balanced, they tend to behave very well leaving our skin clearer.

So far, I have a number of facial oils but my current fave is the Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse which is being sold at Beauty Bars. This luxurious oil is made in France and can be used on face, body and hair. With its 97.8% natural formula, Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse® is enriched with vitamin E and is guaranteed to be free of silicone and mineral oils. Consisting of 6 Precious Plant Oils(Macadamia, Hazelnut, Borage, Sweet Almond, Camellia and St. John's Wort),this dry oil nourishes, repairs and softens face, skin and hair in a single sweep. Perhaps I shall make a detailed review soon!

They say, the pricier facial oils are, they are expected to be more potent and should have better stuff inside them. I guess it is true in my experience.

What about you? Are you digging facial oils? I would love to know!
