5 Non-Greasy, Nourishing Face Oils To Try

Best Face Oils For 2023 | Space NK
When it comes to skincare, serums and moisturisers get a lot of attention and are generally seen as the go-to if you want to target certain skin concerns, whereas face oils tend to be overlooked. While they don’t sink into the skin the way a face cream would, face oils do help to seal and lock in hydration and protect and strengthen your skin barrier. For those who are concerned with dryness and sometimes flaky skin, the best face oils will help slowly smooth and repair your skin.

We want to give face oils the love they deserve, especially with the colder months approaching. In our opinion, a good face oil is a great addition to your skincare routine if you want to achieve a glowy, glass skin look, without looking greasy or shiny.

Which skin types do face oils suit?

Those with dry skin will benefit the most from a face oil as the nourishing formula acts as a shield, locking in moisture – make sure to use your face oil as your last step. The best face oil for you will not only provide an extra layer of hydration, but also maximise the benefits of the serums and cream you applied prior. Oily skin types can also benefit from using a face oil, you just have to pay attention to the oils used as they can sometimes be pore-clogging.

We’ve selected some of the best face oils for different skin types and concerns. Read on to find your face oil match…
