Chosen by Sugarpuffish: 14 Natural and Organic Facial Oils and Serums

Chosen by Sugarpuffish 12 Natural and Organic Facial Oils and Serums
I was chatting with my sister about facial oils and it gave me the idea to put together this article. I have bought plenty oils/serums in the four years I have been running my blog so reviews are scattered around in the archives. I figured it might be nice to collate my favourites together in one place. You may notice a common theme, I am a massive fan of rosehip so I like oils and serums with this base ingredient.
I think top favourite spot goes to Odylique. The Superfruit Concentrate contains my favourite ingredients, rosehip, jojoba, pomegranate, seabuckthorn and avocado. It might not seem much but these are powerful ingredients which will protect, renew, repair and hydrate your skin. I personally feel this product is superior to the much converted Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate oil.

A recent addition to my beauty routine but one I instantly fell in love with. The blend of ingredients is delightful Organic Rosehip Oil and Organic Rosehip CO2 Fruit Extract, Vitamin C Ester (Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate) Silkening Ecosilk (100% biodegradable from Sugar and Coconut) Organic Sea Buckthorn Fruit Oil, Damask Rose Otto Flower Oil. I find this oil to have fruity scent with a light feel which sinks into my skin beautifully. 

This oil contains Bulgarian Damask Rose Otto, Organic Moroccan Argan Oil, Rosehip Seed Oil, Tunisian Neroli oil, Kukui Nut oil, Strawberry Seed Oil, Evening Primrose and Vitamin E. Desert Rose promises to hydrate and nourish skin, leave it cashmere soft and velvety smooth and give complexion an even toned and youthful appearance. Do I agree with this? Absolutely spot on, it’s blooming amazing stuff.

Mel Millis is a premium brand. The blend of Pomegranate, Argan, Rosehip and Rose Otto is lovely for my skin. An ideal facial oil for mature, dry or irritated skin.

This delightful facial oil contains some fantastic organic ingredients so it’s no surprise that it’s an award winner and a favourite of mine. If you love Avocado, Camellia, Raspberry Seed, Sea Buckthorn, Rose Fruit, Marula Nut, Frankincense and Palmarosa oils then I am sure you would like this product. The ingredients are vitamin and fatty acid rich perfect for hydrating skin, lines and wrinkles. 

The Soothe oil caters for sensitive skin and contains jojoba, apricot kernel, kukui nut, chamomile and lavender. It's a delightful blend with a pleasant aroma. The combination of ingredients offer soothing, healing and anti inflammatory properties. 

Budget Friendly Rosehip Oil
As I mentioned Rosehip is my favourite ingredient and if you are just looking for this as a plain oil rather than blended then I have two recommendations. There are so many on the market and prices vary hugely but if you are budget conscious then Peachykeen and Balm Balm are always top of my list.

If you cannot find the facial oil of your dreams then Inner Soul Bespoke Services could be for you. I was very impressed with the service and my oil contained a number of ingredients which I would choose for myself (Manuka, Lavender, Calendula, Rosehip, Shea butter) and a few which I was not familiar with (Chia seed & Helichrysum).

Honorable Mentions

  2. Oh my goodness -- you have tried a lot of different face oils! I'm actually really glad I came across this post, as I've been looking into purchasing a good facial oil. This sounds like a stupid question, but how do you use it? Do you cleanse with it, or leave it on at night? I've been using straight vitamin e oil and it works well (especially for growing out eyelashes -- wowww), but I want something with a little more "uumph."

    1. It's a lot because I've been using natural products for about 15 years :D All the products mentioned in this article are intended to be used in the same way as you would use say a facial cream and can be applied daily in morning and/or evenings. I do also use cleansing oils but have different products for that purpose.
