There were times when even an idea of using an oil for your face was unacceptable. Each attempt to use any oil resulted in blocked pores, oily t-zone and irritation. Not long time ago there were no face oils, and of course no cruelty free face oils, on the market. The only oil which was suggested to use was an extra virgin olive oil.

Over the past 10 years face oils along with serums, have been true skincare newcomers. Seems like just yesterday no one knew about them, no one though about adding them to a skin care regime, and now it’s hard to imagine our routine without them.

Like with everything in life, you have to find your perfect face oil match. With great variety on the market, it is important do not give up too easily and if a first attempt wasn’t a success. Keep trying and you will be rewarded with glowing, radiant, plump skin when you find the one.
