Three Facial Oils To Add To Your Beauty Bag


When face oils entered the beauty world, they quickly became a staple in our skincare routine. While they may feel light on your skin, facial oils deliver heavy benefits. It’s a good idea to have your complexion analysed by a skin therapist before using a facial oil to ensure you choose the right one for your skin type. Facial oil can be used morning and night. Apply it to dry, cleansed skin under your usual moisturiser for an added boost of nourishment.

Here are three face oils that have stood the test of time. From left-right: 

• Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil ($47.99/45ml): Proven to reduce wrinkles, scars and stretch marks, rosehip oil also works wonders on dry skin.

• Dr. Hauschka Clarifying Day Oil ($64): Certified natural and organic, it regulates oil production. Skin is calmer, pores refined and complexion more radiant.

• Evolu Facial Serum ($64.99): This dry oil-based serum absorbs quickly, leaving skin thoroughly hydrated. Vitamins A, C and E provide a hit of antioxidants to rejuvenate skin.

Going The Distance: Chanel Beauty

Beauty brands come and go, but some are destined to stay year after year. Chanel is one of those brands. The French company has been a leader in the beauty and fashion worlds since its creation more than 100 years ago, in 1909.

Major celebrities from Kate Moss, and Claudia Schiffer to, more recently, Blake Lively and Kirsten Stewart, have fronted the iconic brand. Though perhaps no ambassador is so well-known as Marilyn Monroe, who was famously quoted saying: “What do I wear in bed? Why, Chanel No. 5, of course.”

These timeless beauty icons from the house of Chanel are all you need for an effortless beauty look.
