Let's start with facial oils. These oils can make your skin look radiant, plump wrinkled tissue and hydrate without clogging pores.
Fresh Seaberry Moisturizing Face Oil is a treat to use at night, as it may not play nicely with all makeup. It contains Sea Buckthorn, Cranberry and Grape Seed Oil. These ingredients have been known to help heal burns, improve collagen and make skin look radiant. Apply this at night as a serum and wake up to brighter skin in the morning! A little goes a long way, so this will last you for quite a long time!
M. Steves Ultra Nourishing Boost contains Rose Hip Oil. Full of inflammatories, this oil helps reduce wrinkles, gives skin a firmer appearance, balances oily skin and can potentially reduce scars from acne.
It's full of omega fatty acids which we all know are so good for the face! Apply this directly after washing your face in the morning and at night. Your skin will glow! You can even mix this with other favorite products to give your skin an extra nourishing boost.
Want the benefits, but not at the price? Coming to drugstores this summer, L'OREAL is launching Age Perfect Hydra Nutrition Glow Renewal Face Oil. This facial oil is very, very light, absorbs quickly and leaves skin feeling non-greasy. This oil is a blend of eight oils: English Lavender, Rosemary Leaf, Geranium, Orange Peel, Roman Chamomile, Rose Flower, Lavandin, Marjoram Leaf. The scent of this oil reminds me of much more expensive products. Try it under your regular skincare for a glowing boost of radiance for around $25.

I can talk about hair oils for days. I love them. Not a day goes by when I don't use one. I'm a little obsessed. We all know I adore Davines Oi and Leonor Greyl's Magnolia or Palme Huile, but what about products that are a little easier to find on shelves near you?
Redken recently launched Diamond Oil in two formulas: Regular and Intense. This oil will last forever. The dropper only gives you a small amount for a reason! Add it to dry hair for shatterproof shine or wet hair for a glossy blowout. It also helps reduce breakage and strengthens the hair. It's silicone-free and so worth checking out. This regular oil includes Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil, Coriandrum Sativum Oil, and Prunus Armeniaca Kernel Oil. The intense version includes: Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil, Olea Europaea Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis Oil, Cocos Nucifera Oil, Camelina Sativa Oil, Coriandrum Sativum Oil and Prunus Armeniaca Kernel Oil.
Prive Oil Vanishing Oil is not silicone-free, but it contains a blend of my favorite oils - Argan, Maracuja and Brazil Nut Oils. This oil is very lightweight and despite the silicones, I haven't noticed any buildup. The extra absorbs quickly into your hands and does wonders for your cuticles! Hair is shiny, bouncy and looks incredibly healthy after just a few uses.
AVA Oil is a heavier oil and works wonders when applied to the hair for 10-15 minutes before washing. A little goes a long way, so be careful applying it daily. This will hydrate strands and protect from humidity. Just don't overdo it. The best part? Unlike so many other oils, it is completely clear and smells like powdery Hawaiian flowers. I love the scent so much, I've been putting it on my arms and legs as well.This oil contains antioxidant grape seed oil, soy complex, arcticum majus root extract and horse seed chestnut. Pick it up from PlanetBeauty.com!
Bumble and Bumble's Hairdresser's Oil is also clear and provides UV protection, which is wonderful for colored hair. This oil is very light and adds shine and frizz protection immediately. What attracted me to this product was how light weight and colorless it is. It's not silicone free, but I love the blend of oils: Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Argania Spinos Kernel Oil, Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, and Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil, Gardenia Tahitensis (Tiare) Flower Extract, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Extract.This also makes my hair the softest out of all oils I've tried. That is a huge win!
Finally, Indie Lee body oil is so moisturizing, so wonderful for massages and leaves skin smelling like lavender. It's also great for your face and even your hair! The smell is fantastic. What is not to love? This product contains 100% Natural: Simmondsia Chinensis (jojoba) Oil, Prunus Armeniaca (apricot) Oil, Essential Oils of Lavandula Angustifolia (lavender) and Anthemis Nobilis (chamomile). One great thing about the Indie Lee brand is that they don't "greenwash" anything. They walk the natural walk and talk the talk!
What oil has been one of my favorites since before oils were en vogue? Leonor Greyl, of course! What can't this oil do? It's great for just about everything and smells divine. If you haven't tried it, I don't know what you are waiting for! I have honestly yet to meet someone who did not like this huile.
