Facial oils are amazing for skincare and as you probably know by now I love them. They are one of the best ways to inject moisture into the skin and are fab for preventing the fine ageing lines. I use them day and night on their own, mixed with serums or under moisturiser. They keep my skin look healthy and glowing even on the days when I am tired. Oils are natural, similar to our own oils in the skin and safe to use. They can balance the oil production in the skin and contrary to the usual belief are best for treating oily and combination skin, especially if you are suffering from spots. It often takes me a few weeks to write the product review as I always like to test the product at least a few weeks to give my honest opinion. This month I am testing Pure Bliss beauty oil by Skinirvana.
I'm all about using oils for skin care, firstly because they are amazing for any skin problems, especially for anti-ageing and for hydration. Secondly because they are all natural, pure plant materials and easily available. You can use the oils on their own or you can blend them to match your needs. Use lighter oils for oily skin and heavier oils for dry or dehydrated skin. You can also use them to make your own body oils and other products as well as treatment balms and body butters. I use oils every day and night alongside of moisturisers and serums. For me they have really worked well for preventing signs of ageing and I love that you can create different oils for different things and they make great little gifts as well.
