Face oils for oily skin
How to get glowing skin✨
Hydrating face oils
May 10, 2020
Which facial oil should I use? 😤
Who would’ve thought that facial oils would be a thing we’d put on our face?! Weren’t we trying to avoid having oily skin? Before I started getting into skincare, I never used facial oils before. So, when I dove into the world, I didn’t know where to start. There’s so many on the market that it’s hard to pinpoint which ones truly do work and which ones are just veggie oil in a bottle 😭 Here are 3 facial oils I’ve tried & my experience with them. Hopefully you’ve tried them before, too! And, if not, then what you waiting for sis?! 1. from plants - OMG Facial Oil this facial oil by from plants is one of my favorite lightweight oils out there. Because it’s so lightweight, I’ve managed to use it during the AM when I’m just staying home. This facial oil contains: ￼Apricot kernel oil: helps to moisturize while slowing signs of aging ￼Rose hip, lavender and pumpkin oil: boosts collagen production and reduces inflammation ￼Turmeric oil: targets pores and calms skin from breakouts This is a great facial oil for anyone looking to have a nutrient packed product without having to add additional ingredients onto your face. 2. KORA - Noni Glow Face Oil one of my favorite oils of all time! This facial oil does exactly as it says: GLOW ✨ I’ve also used this in the AM and have gone out with it on. All day glow, ladies, trust me. This facial oil contains: ￼Noni extract, rosehip oil, pomegranate oil and sea buckthorn: all combined are meant to create a rich source of antioxidants and fatty acids to your skin! This is more pricey being $68 but the results were well worth it. If you want a similar product, let’s head below 👇🏼 3. sbâèk - Globe Trotter Facial Oil this facial oil is slightly thicker than the noni facial oil so I use it in the PM. It is unavailable on the market BUT a great alternative is THE inkey LIST - Squalane Oil which offers the same result for me. It produces soft and supple skin while also targeting inflammation, great for restorative measures!
My thoughts on Glossier’s recent launch...
Glossier. - Priming Moisturizer Balance I have combo to oily skin & I have such a tough time finding a moisturizer that isn’t heavy and does its job of keeping my skin barrier lovely. I liked this at first but then I experienced HUGE breakouts on my chin. It hydrates, soaks in and leaves a matte finish, but not worth the breakouts :( . I did love pairing it with sbâèk - Globe Trotter Facial Oil it gives such a nice glow & that added push of moisture. I have since switched to LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Double Repair Face Moisturizer UV SPF 30 and my breakouts have cleared!
Skincare Favorites ✨ I am going home this evening and am so excited to see my siblings, my parents, and my grandparents! 🥰 I’ve been loving the products and they’ve been keeping my skin hydrated and less dull! The drbarbarasturm hyaluronic serum is so amazing, it leaves my skin plump and ready for the next layers, and a few nights a week (I’m so scared of over exfoliating lol) I’ll use a small amount of the sundayriley good genes which really does help exfoliate my skin beautifully and never leaves me feeling extra dry. I’ve especially been loving the caudalie vinoperfect glycolic night cream* which gently resurfaces but hydrated deeply with one of my favorite ingredients, squalane! I don’t use it in conjunction with the good genes bc that’s a bit much for my skin, but on the nights I do use the night cream, I definitely notice a smoother complexion!

A hydrating oil with a nice ingredients list
I’m a big Kiehl’s fan, and this Kiehl's - Daily Reviving Concentrate is no exception. It has the consistency of an oil thanks to the base of tamanu and sunflower seed oils, but it also has the antioxidant-packed ginger root and squalane. I found it to be hydrating, and it also mixed great into the Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Cream depending on what my skin needed at the time. If you are sensitive to citrus oils this may not be for you, but my skin isn’t bothered by citrus and I thought this added a touch of radiance to dull skin in the mornings I used this. This isn’t the cheapest skin treatment I’ve seen, but at $47 for 1 ounce it also isn’t terrible. If you’re looking for a lightweight oil to use and don’t mind citrus oils, I think this will be a winner for you.
Kiehl's-Daily Reviving Concentrate
One of my favorite Kiehl’s products!
Kiehl’s really just makes great treatment oils, and this Kiehl's - Midnight Recovery Concentrate is one of my favorite products from them. It is packed with great ingredients like rosehip oil, Squalane, evening primrose oil, jojoba seed oil, and it’s also free of drying alcohols and added fragrance. You can use it on it’s own, but it also mixes really well into the Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Cream . I have gone through multiple of these samples from gifts with purchase and subscription boxes, and I would definitely purchase this in the full-size in the future because it leaves my skin hydrated and radiant. Even if you’re scared of oils, I really recommend giving this a shot. I don’t think it’s terribly priced at 47$ for 1 ounce of product, especially since you only need a few drops a night.
Kiehl's-Midnight Recovery Concentrate
My nighttime routine is constantly changing to address my specific skin issues. I just use exfoliating products on Sunday-Wednesday and the rest is just nourishing and hydrating routine like this one I'm going to show you. This is the best for my skin’s protective barrier to stay intact in a healthy place. After I double cleanse my skin, I use Odacite Rose + Neroli Hydra-Vitalizing Treatment Mist in place of a toner. It offers hydration with Aloe Vera, restores balance to my skin with Rose Water, and is alcohol-free. This divinely scented mist instantly brings comfort and relaxation. Then I use SKII Facial Treatment Essence to help add another layer of hydration to my skin. With proper hydration I feel it's better able to support the direct benefits of my serum and moisturizer. The next step is where the most active items come into play. I apply them from the thinnest to the thickest. The first serum is Paulas Choice 10% Niacinamide Booster as the texture is very watery. Niacinamide increases the production of ceramides, keeping the skin strong and preventing Trans Epidermal Water Loss at night. I then go on to apply NIOD Survival 0, which is designed to be used at night to give the skin consistent protection against oxidative damage, infrared and blue light, smog and stress. This thin emulsion contain a whole host of Amino Acids, multiple forms of Hyaluronic Acid and Squalane and Jojoba Seed Oil that are responsible for all manner of skin health. Sometimes when I need extra hydration I also use The Bath Box HA Serum before moisturizer as it has a very thick texture. To maximize absorption and lock in moisture I use Odacite Night Time Antioxidants Repair Serum mixed with 2-3 drops of their targeted Serum Concentrate. The Serum has a creamy consistency with antioxidants-rich ingredients that work to protect the skin from premature aging. This combo soothes my skin, making it feel soft and plumped without clogging pores. The last step is Odacite Ba+S Eye Contour Serum Concentrate for my eyes. I really love this one because the oils hydrates that gentle area around my eyes and doesn't irritate it at all.
SK-II-Facial Treatment Essence (Pitera Essence)
Today I wanted to talk to you guys about these 2 products from 2 of my very favorite brands, loccitane and fresh. Both of these are gorgeously packaged in a very similar midnight blue color, which makes them easy to feature in the same post, and I’ve been using them together for a few weeks now so I thought I’d review them together! Let’s talk 🌌 💛 Immortelle Overnight Reset Oil-in-Serum - a delicate oil-in-serum formula that was created to help skin recover overnight from the stressors of daily life which plague our skin! With extended use of this serum, the skin is supposed to appear more youthful and more rested. The key ingredient in here: the Immortelle flower, which is known as the everlasting flower that never fades, even after being picked. It carries an organic essential oil rich in active molecules that offer unique anti-again benefits for the skin. 💙 Lotus Youth Preserve Dream Night Cream - as its name suggests, it is a veritable dream indeed. This night cream is the newest addition to freshbeauty’s Lotus Youth Preserve line, and it is such a gem. Super Lotus harnesses the multi-benefit properties of the whole living lotus plant and houses them in one power ingredient that helps to deliver antioxidant protection for the skin, prevent and minimize aging signs, strengthen the skin’s barrier and significantly improve radiance, all the while deeply hydrating. Peach leaf extract is there to help the skin recover from daily activities overnight, not to mention make this night cream smell like a fruit basket! 🍑 🧡 💛💙 How do I feel about this duo? The smell of these guys, first of all, is nothing short of heavenly - smell gets me SO much when it comes to beauty products, and these do not disappoint. What’s also amazing is that these sink into the skin SO fast. Both the serum and cream are very light but they still provide a ton of hydration, so I know they’ll be great during the summer too. When I wake up in the morning I wake up to glowing, hydrated, even-toned and happy skin. This has become such a favorite night routine of mine and I’ll be repurchasing forever 💫

Empties become newbies! Repurchase for 2020
I came, I saw, I bought. 🤣🤣🤣 This is not just a joke! Once I run out of this ESTĒE LAUDER - Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Multi-Recovery Complex , I will repurchase it without hesitation! Sounds crazy but two empties and two newbies (full-size you know😉) can justify my love. The texture of it is solid but thick, and the herbal smell makes me feel the power of healing and soothing (haha sounds crazy). Once you apply it on your face, this serum can be absorbed quickly and leave your skin soft, moisturised and glowy! All these feelings are just so right! 😍 What makes it so hard to live without? My healthy skin without further problems! This is not a serum that can work wanders, but your skin can be in a balance condition definitely! Though it is a bit pricey, this is my one and only beloved (ewwww 😂). Hope my babies can bring me a glowing skin in 2020!
