Facial Oils for All Skin Needs

Hello lovelies,

If you’ve been following me for a while you’ll know I’m a lover of Rosehip Oil. I’ve recently experimented with other facial oils and here’s my thoughts on what skin types they would benefit.

Disclaimer; I have oily/ combination skin and use facial oils on a regular basis. All skin types dry, combo, normal and oily can benefit from facial oils. Facial oils have multiple purposes, and it’s not always about hydration.


Rosehip Plus Rosehip Oil*

This is a great drugstore Rosehip Oil. Rosehip Oil is fab for all types of pigmentation and adds a hint of hydration. 2 to 3 drops of this is more than enough.

Pai Skincare Rosehip BioRegenerate Fruit & Seed Oil Blend

This is a high end Rosehip Oil and is also blended with some other fruit and seeds for some added benefits. This oil helps with pigmentation, firmness, elasticity and dullness. I can honestly say I noticed a positive change in my skin after using this oil for a couple of days.

Sanctuary Spa Therapist’s Secret Facial Oil

I hate it when products don’t state clearly the ingredients in its name. But upon closer inspection it contains rosehip, sunflower, jojoba and other fancy oils. This is an all-rounder facial oil to rehydrate the skin and defend against natural pollutants. It is recommended to use 2 drops but personally I still found this too much. I found the texture to be too oily which sounds ridiculous, but I felt it didn’t absorb quickly into the skin. This would be more suitable to dry skin types.

Goodness Organic Chia Seed Oil

I was so curious about this face oil, as I’m a big fan of chia seeds in my smoothies and brekkie bowls. When doing my research about this face oil it’s hard to pin point what exactly this oil does. By guess it’s a good all-rounder, hydrating and pumps the skin with loads of antioxidants. I use about 2 to 3 drops and pat onto my skin. I feel this is a bit heavy in texture but not as heavy as the Sanctuary Spa oil.

Sunday Riley Luna Oil

I’ve only tried a sample of this and trialled it for 3 weeks and didn’t seen any amazing results. The reason I include this is because its $150 and you would hope it would be bloody miraculous! It’s a natural retinol, targeted at anti-aging and reducing pigmentation. Many people love this product, but personally this was a miss for me.

  1. Oh my… The Sunday Riley is so expensive and I’ve been thinking about it for a while, however I couldn’t do it.
    Maybe I’ll ask for a sample first to see how it goes.

    Great post babe!


    1. Yeah, organic rosehip oil has a smell about it. The longer its open (older) the more fragrant it is. Personally I don’t notice it, but maybe you should try a different face oil. The Goodness Chia Oil has no scent x


  2. I’ve used rosehip oils before, but I’ve found that they haven’t always got along well with my skin. I’m currently using a rosehip & jojoba blend because I want to get rid of it, so I’ve been mixing a few drops in with moisturiser & it seems to work better that way, rather than layering the oil over/under the moisturiser. I’m more a fan of straight jojoba oil though.
