Oil-based cleansers, serums and moisturisers are ideal this time of the year as they are packed with nutrients and highly hydrating. Great for all skin types, including greasy, these products will change the way you think about skincare.
Bio-Oil's reputation preceeds the product. Packed with vitamins A and E, plus PurCellin Oil™, Bio-Oil has been proved to reduce scars, stretch marks and improve the overall appearance of skin. Use on face and body for deep hydration. Bio-Oil, £8.95
At £85 Darphin 8-Flower Nectar is by no means a steal, however this wonderful all rounder truly does what it says on the (rather luxurious) tin. Packed with Jasmine, Ylang Ylang, Neroli, Tangerine and Lavender oils, this treatment improves elasticity, moisture, suppleness and radiance. Chamomile oil calms and soothes. A great investment and you only need a few drops.
Genie In A Bottle Oil Cleanser for Face and Body by D'Anu, £28, is truly a five star product. It gets rid of makeup in an instant, it easy to rinse off with water, leaves the skin silky smooth and smells gorgeous. Can be used as a face and body wash. We are addicted!
Packed with Co-enzyme Q10 and organic tamanu oil, Trilogy Co-Q10 Serum, £29.50, is fantastic booster for aging, dry and tired skin. Apply a few drops to the face and let it absorb for a few minutes before applying your moisturising cream. Also fantastic as a night treatment on its own.
RVB Holistic BioAge Oil, £46.50, contains rare purified marine oils to promote the production of collagen and improve elasticity whilst fighting skin-aging free radicals.
Packed with evening primrose, wheat germ, avocado and sesame seed oils, Collin Resultime Nourishing Oil, £37.75, is ideal for very dry and sensitive skin thanks to its rich hydrating properties. Use on its own, add a few drops to your moisturiser or use before your daily cream as a potent treatment. Ideal for the winter months when the epidermis needs extra care.
Facial oils are great for all skin types, including greasy skin. Contrary to popular belief, oils do not cause break-outs or increase sebum production in skin. Quite the opposite: their moisturising properties help regulate the production of natural oils existent in the epidermis and keep the skin in top condition. Try Clarins Lotus Face Oil for Oily/Combination Skin, £26, which is packed with geranium, rosewood and hazelnut oils, to tighten pores, hydrate, increase elasticity and balance the skin.
Containing olive oil, Tara Walker's Dream Cleansing Balm, £39, turns into a milky lotion to melt away makeup and daily grime. Gentle and moisturising is perfect for all skin types, including oily and sensitive.
