Best Face Forward
This powerful rose-hip oil has a high concentration of essential fatty acids and antioxidants, which improve the tone and elasticity of skin and diminish the appearance of scars. As in, it's a total wonder product for a myriad of skin concerns.
Our EIC Rachel Zoe loves this nourishing product, which is light enough to wear for daytime underneath makeup. Comprising 99% organic content, namely a blend of potent essential oils, it's perfect for the health-conscious beauty consumer. (Plus, if it's good enough for Gwyneth, it's good enough for us.)
Suitable for dry and oily skin types alike, this cult-loved formula has a great reputation for a reason. Licorice root extract helps calm skin, and the 24K gold flecks in the bottle make it feel truly luxurious.
Vintner's Daughter launched as a brand with this single hero product and has racked up momentous praise throughout the beauty community. Formulated with 22 all-natural powerful ingredients like rose hip and evening primrose oil, this serum (which we use in place of a moisturizer) improves skin's texture and natural radiance for an unparalleled result. Bonus points: It's an amazing primer for makeup.
This transformative oil penetrates the skin's surface to strengthen its natural barrier (and protect from environmental elements like sun and wind), shrink large pores and smooth wrinkles. The line is all natural yet highly scientific, which means you get a product you feel safe using without compromising efficacy. (The brand's standards for ingredients are truly top-notch—more on that here.)
Laurel Whole Plant Organics relies on the power of plants and botanicals such as gotu kola, calendula and frankincense to stimulate collagen production and encourage healthy cell reproduction. This serum can be used any time of day, but we love it at night for a hydrating boost alone or under a moisturizer.
A budget-friendlier buy among the standout rose-hip oil formulas, this product includes high-quality blends of oils with omega 3, 6 and 9, which combat scars, wrinkles and fine lines.
Sunday Riley offers a slew of fantastic oils, but Juno takes the cake for us. With superfood ingredients like blueberry and cranberry seed oil, the product is packed with anti-aging, antioxidant-rich components that fight off potential environmental damage and leave you with supple, hydrated skin.
This miracle oil harnesses the power of superfood chia to prevent wrinkles, brighten skin and fight against free-radical damage. It also comes highly recommended by the founder of natural beauty mecca Credo Beauty, just sayin'.
Oribe's foray into skincare does not disappoint—this product's mix of moisturizing sea buckthorn berry, resurfacing neroli and anti-aging rose hip make it a slam dunk.
This all-natural oil relies on the almighty power of mangosteen, which has amazing healing properties for cystic acne. Its oxygenating effects also give any skin type a radiant boost.
This blend of potent essential oils such as sandalwood, rose and neroli evens out skin tone and reverses damage—plus, it smells amazing.
