The best face oils for every skin type
New to face oil? Well, you're in for a treat! As multi-use products that are versatile for all months out of the year and in many types of uses, facial beauty oils should be an essential step in your makeup or skincare routine. We love facial oils because they are formulated with natural oils that help rejuvenate the skin and also help prep the skin for spending a day outside with makeup on. Facial oils are perfect to add as a moisturizer to your skincare routine and as a primer for your makeup. It's an all-in-one! Check out some our favorite green, organic, natural, and female-founded brands and test them out in our store!
Kjaer Weis The Beautiful Oil
The Beautiful Oil by Kjaer Weis is a facial oil made from the ingredient Dioscorea Batatas also known as "The Root of Light". Formulated with ingredients that help keep the skin smooth, Kjaer Weis has made this a gentle, extremely hydrating facial oil that will leave you moisturized yet not oily, which makes this suitable for many skin types. You can use the oil as a moisturizer AND as a makeup primer. We personally feel like dabbing some of the oil on top of our makeup leaves our skin dewy and gives a soft glow. This organic and natural oil is made with integrity and thought. We love The Beautiful Oil, and like all Kjaer Weis products, it also comes in a refill as well!
Vintner's Daughter Active Botanical Serum
The Active Botanical serum is an active oil that not only has amazing skin properties to help improve the skin beneath the surface, but the oil also helps to color correct with anti-inflammatory and redness correction. It also contains properties that help to restore and heal the texture and moisture of the skin to produce a natural radiance that really gives you that glow-from-within look. This is one of the most raved about facial serums, and for good reason too! This is our go to multi-tasker; there really isn't anything Vintners Daughter cannot correct when it comes to skin. Not to mention the fragrance alone of the 22 different botanical essential oils is an experience on its own. Check here for the push press method and make sure to shop local here!
RMS Beauty Oil
The RMS Beauty Oil is another oil that is simple, pure and organic. It focuses a lot of it's ingredients on antioxidant protection. While also giving you a radiant glow, this oil also contains the exotic and rare Buriti Oil which is known to also help filter UV rays as an added benefit to the oil's protective properties. Rose Marie Swift, the founder, is a complete badass and we love being one of Seattle's only vendors of RMS Beauty. We love that we can use this oil year round and find that it is incredibly lightweight and works perfectly as a moisturizer worn on under makeup. Find this gorgeous and affordable oil in our Seattle salon or shop online here!
