Face oil controversies

February 1, 2018


If you think that skin care products can only be bought by skincare brands in big stores then this blog might help you think again.

All people are different & so is their skin.

However we are sold products based on whether our skin types fit into certain categories.


I personally don't believe in a 1 size fits all approach.

There is no denying that adding a face oil to your skincare regime will improve the quality of your complexion.

However personally my biggest fear is that i'm trusting a big skincare brand to sell me a product that will have no artificial additives ( but has a shelf life of over 1 year).

Now this may sound a little paranoid so just stay with me on this one.


By doing a little research into your skin type you will find that there are so many different oils that will be of benefit to you.

The added benefit will be that they cost a fraction of what  you have been paying.

It doesn't have to be complicated, if you don't want to make a blend that's fine.

You can just start with one pure oil.

The most important thing you need to keep in mind is that it needs to be 100% organic, cold pressed oil.

There are so many different types out there for you to try.

Certain oils match certain skin types, you can also add essential oils to boost mother nature's recipe.

They are all naturally rich in vitamins and oxidants.

If you are looking for an antiaging oil, you could try Argan oil, Camelia, Rosehip, Apricot or Sea buckthorn.

A great blend for oily skin is Grapeseed, Jojoba, Evening primrose, Geranium & Rosehip.

Acne prone skin will also benefit from an oil, Jojoba is great as it boosts skin's natural protection layer. You can try blending it with tea tree, clary sage and juniper.

Combination skin is a combination of greasy T zone, mixed with dry patches. Good oils tor try if this is your skin would be Passion fruit seed oil, it is light and non greasy. It is also high in vitamin A. Carrot seed oil is also worth a mention here it is a balancing oil and helps to give the skin a vibrant glow.


I might just take a minute here to share with you the blend I have been enjoying for the las couple of months.

I have rosacea, it mainly affects my cheeks and most lotions normally make it worse.

I also get really bad black heads so was looking for an oil that would not block my pores.

This is a gentle blend mainly consisting of hazelnut oil

I wanted something moisturising that would not clog my pores but rich enough during these cold months.

Vitamin E oil for it's antioxidant properties.

Rosehip for it's antiaging properties, I also find it helps with any scars from the roseacea.

Rosewood is a natural antibacterial oil, it also helps to regulate the production of sebum.


A basic recipe would be:


Hazelnut oil: 25ml

Rosehip oil: 5ml

Vitamin E oil: 2ml

Rosewood oil: 3 drops ( this can be replaced with an essential oil of your choice)


I really do hope you give this a try lots of love
