Have you Tried Face Oils? 10 Face Oils for Every Budget and Skin Type

Over the past few years, face oils have become the latest trend to get younger, healthier skin. Celebrities such as Adriana Lima and Sofia Vergara swear by them. Hey, even Cleopatra used it back in the day to wash her face several times daily! According to celebrity dermatologist Dr. Gervaise Gerstner, “Face oils are an excellent way to get antioxidants quickly into the skin and soften the appearance of fine lines.” They also help prevent water loss by plumping the skin with moisture. But if the thought of putting oil on your already oily skin is terrifying, some oils can actually balance oily or acne-prone skin.

But do you really need to spend a fortune on these magical oil potions? Luckily, there are face oils for every budget and skin type that will do the trick.

If you’re looking to add a face oil to your own skincare regimen, here are a few worth trying:

  • RODIN olio lusso, $150 1 of 10

    This face oil is made from a blend of 11 essential oils, including argan oil, calendula flower oil, sweet almond oil, and primrose. It's perfect if you're looking for hydrated skin and a luminous complexion. A little goes a long way with this bottle. Model Adriana Lima uses it as part of her beauty regimen, and it's one of my personal favorites, too.

    A little on the pricy side, this precious blend of pure oils and age-delaying extracts comes hand-blended from a monastery in the Czech Republic. Fancy, huh? The blend helps nourish the skin, smooth fine lines, and completely renew the complexion.

    This oil deeply nourishes and replenishes dull, dry skin and leaves it feeling extra soft. It's also non-greasy and lightweight and gets absorbed by the skin quickly for all-day hydration without leaving it oily. My mom uses this one and loves it. It's also a bargain for under $30 bucks.
