Our 5-piece Beauty Oil Sampler is a great way to find the right beauty oil for your skin type.
The key to using face oils and actually getting benefits from them is choosing the right oil (or blend of oils) for your skin type or condition. The oils are formulated for aging, dry, oily and sensitive skin types.
As we age, our skin produces less oil, which means our skin gets dried out more easily. This, for many women, exaggerates the look of wrinkles. Plant oils can slow down the formation of wrinkles because they contain antioxidants and pass through the skin quickly, preventing water loss and keeping the skin plump. Antioxidants boost collagen production and strengthen skin elasticity, thus reducing fine lines. You may want to use a serum first such as Skin Boost Peptide Elixir, followed by a beauty oil.
Best oils for aging skin: Argan, prickly pear, rosehip seed
Whether our dry, parched skin is weather dependent or a year-round concern, our plant-based beauty oils can be part of the remedy. Quick-absorbing, nutrient-rich face oils help to deeply moisturize and smooth your skin. For dehydrated skin, you may want to use a hydrating serum first, such as our Hyaluronic Intensive, followed by a moisturizing oil to lock in all of the benefits of the serum.
Best oils for dry skin: Grapeseed, apricot, jojoba
Overly stripping oily skin in an attempt to get rid of oily shine actually causes our skin to produce more oil to compensate, creating a vicious cycle. Certain oils can actually help balance our skin’s oil production, get rid of excess oil on our face and minimize the appearance of pores. Certain oils can dissolve excess sebum and remove grime and fats from pores, thus minimizing their appearance.
Master Esthetician, Adina Diaz, also recommends using an oil-based cleanser to help rid our skin of makeup, pollutants, dead skin cells and other impurities. Our C+C Cleansing Balm is a perfect choice for removing makeup, then follow up with our Amaranth Gentle Cleanse. She suggests choosing a cleanser that is hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic and designed for sensitive skin for the best results.
Best oils for oily/acne-prone skin: jojoba, neroli
Free radical–fighting antioxidants also protect your skin and combat future damage by reducing cellular oxidation, one of the processes by which skin ages. By tackling free radicals, products like those containing rosehip seed oil or those with a high vitamin E content protect against and reduce damage from the sun. (But, no, they don’t block UV rays.) Be sure to apply sunscreen after massaging a few drops of face oil onto your skin in the morning. Face oils have anti-inflammatory properties, which means they can calm the skin and reduce rashes.
Best oils for oily/acne-prone skin: jojoba, avocado, grapeseed
Add a few drops to the palm of your hand and a few drops of water to give greater spreadability and absorption. Massage hands together and gently massage onto face.

At first I had a bit of sticker shock to the price for these little guys, but I was pleasantly surprised to see the bottles were bigger than expected. The sample sizes are truly large enough you can use the products long enough to see if you actually like them. A good buy if you're on the fence!
