Face oil

I read a Salli Hughes article about face oils and decided I must need one. I bought the vitamin e one from Body Shop she recommended (& night cream) but am not sure how/when to apply it?

Has anyone had good results with it? I tried the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair recently (and didn't like it at all.

Bio oil broken my skin out and I had to have a course of microdermabrasion facials before it was ok again!
I love the Body Shops vit E oil and use it in the evening after hot cloth cleanse, I try to massage it in for a few minutes. Smells good smile

I used to be a huge fan of Clarins' Blue Orchid oil so am rather thrilled they've re-issued it.. must remember to pop into John Lewis and pick up a sample on my way home tomorrow smile

Am currently using Olio Nutriente Notte from the Farmaceutica Santa Maria Novella which is wonderful, it's a mix of jojoba, macadamia, avocado oil and pollen extracts. If anyone finds themselves in Florence (or their shop in London) I highly recommend it.

ujjayi's recommendation; the aromatherapy associates oil is gorgeous, mine arrived on Friday, the smell is amazing, you only need the smallest amount, morning and evening.

bluesky glad you love it. Mine lasts ages. Tis truly beautiful and feels like such a lovely treat to apply before bedtime smile

Liz Earle Superskin Concentrate is a really lovely face oil - smells gorgeous too.

sansucre I really wanted to try the Notte cream, but sadly am in Scotland and stupid shop has no online presence <pouts>

another vote for coconut oil here

argan oil is great too

has to be 100% pure though

I use this after seeing it recommended on here and it is lovely for dry skin.

I use a really inexpensive Boots own product overnight. It's call Traditional Rose and Glycerine Toner and Moisturiser. My skin's supple and glowy in the mornings. Have used it for a long time and when I run out, I can really see the difference.

I love Decleor ones, especially this one:

they call it a serum for some reason but it's oil really.

Another vote for Decleor. Neroli under day/night moisturiser is brilliant if you're unsure which one you need.

I'm a big fan of face oil and regularly use Decleor. If you go into one of the bigger dept stores that stock Decleor you might be able to blag a sample to try.
