I am not into oils at all, but I got one from Pacifica Beauty, containing several oils, including Blue Tansy, which is one I wanted to try. It is called their Flower Oil.

@CherryHugs  Marula oil is nice because it absorbs quickly.   It does not feel greasy either.  Goggle it to see it's benefits.

I’m a BIG fan of Skinn Divine Elixir Luminous Oil. I’ve tried several facial oils in the past and always ended up disappointed. The Skinn oil is the best I’ve ever used. I have it on auto ship so I never run out.

I like the "DHC Olive Virgin Oil".  It contains the single ingredient of cosmetic grade olive oil, nothing else.

Not a huge oil person, but the last time I was in Blue Mercury, they recommended rose hip oil.  Suppose to make your skin healthy and glowing.

I stopped using body lotions several years ago.  I buy jars of extra virgin organic coconut oil, and keep some in a small plastic lock and lock in the bathroom.  Use it all over from the neck down after my shower.  Wait a bit before getting dressed and it has been absorbed by that time.

 

It works great for me....my skin is very soft, smooth and hydrated.  Pretty inexpensive compared to a lot of lotions, too.

@CherryHugs Whenever I watch QVC or beauty channels on YouTube, everyone recommends oils on the skin.  That is why I tried numerous oils--Argon, Maracuja, Marula, Jojoba, Rosehip...etc. Until I finally realized that my skin does not like oil.  Regular moisturizer is best for me.  My skin feels much better without facial oils.

Hi @JeanLouiseFinch . What are the results you get by using the Skinn product?  Do you use it every night or how often do you apply?
