The Hydrating Face Oils That Have Transformed Our Skin

Share

Face oils continue to grow in popularity on account of their transformative abilities—it’s crazy to think that just a few years ago they weren’t part of our routines at all. Formulas have advanced wildly since their first iterations, and now they address several skin types and concerns, making them a must-have in any woman’s regimen. Here are the oils we swear by—run, don’t walk, to snag a bottle (or two) for yourself.

Enriching Face Oil

$110

Goop by Juice Beauty

"This oil is so fresh and light on my skin but still nourishing. I even use it for daytime and it doesn't feel greasy."

—Rachel Zoe, Editor in Chief

Maracuja Oil

$46

Tarte

"I use this oil on my face and neck when I'm on vacation and have gotten too much sun. Your skin just drinks it up."

—Shannon Nash, Jewelry & Accessories Editor

Camellia Beauty Oil

$95

Tatcha

"Since I haven't met a Tatcha product I don't love, I recently picked up their Camellia Beauty Oil to help my skin stay hydrated. I use drying products daily to help control breakouts, and this has been the perfect complement to keep my face balanced. I use it at night and wake up, dare I say, glowing. Bonus points for the incredible scent and 24-karat gold flakes."

—Jaclyn Decell, Social Media Manager

Juno Hydroactive Cellular Face Oil

$90

Sunday Riley

"I'm obsessed with this oil—I love how it feeds my skin with countless antioxidants and leaves me super dewy. When I'm feeling extra dry, I even slather it on my cuticles and ends of my hair."

—Stephanie Montes, Senior Beauty Editor

Blue Orchid Face Oil Treatment

$57

Clarins

"I was never one to even think of putting oil on my face until my dermatologist suggested a face wash with natural oils (coconut, tea tree and orange) as some of the main ingredients. It completely changed my skin, and now I'm a devotee. I love to use the Clarins Blue Orchid Oil before bed. It smells like heaven."

—Marisa Runyon, Director of TV and Digital Video

Tsubaki Beauty Oil

$46

Boscia

"When my face is extra dry and in need of major TLC, I love applying this oil under my usual skincare products (or sometimes alone) for overnight hydration. I wake up with softer, more supple skin and the formula is soothing and non-greasy, which is a huge plus."

—Amy Lee, Associate Fashion Editor

Eminence Rosehip Triple C+E Firming Oil

$75

Amazon

"This stuff smells amazing and doesn't feel oily at all. I sometimes use it instead of moisturizer, and it makes my skin feel great when I wake up in the morning."

—Jessica Novak, Content Strategy Director

Progenius Oil

$64

NUDE Skincare

"I use a few drops of this oil morning and night before applying my moisturizer. I suffer from dry/sensitive cheeks, and using this regularly has improved their clarity and tone on account of being super hydrating."

—Kristi Mikesky, Features Editor

Beautifying Face Oil

$48

Tata Harper

"The scent and moisturizing texture of this oil have made it a fast favorite in my beauty routine. It gets extra points for being natural and non-toxic. "

—Nicky Deam, Editorial Director
