The Beauty Picks: Oils for Hair, Face & Body

30 May

I’m back with another The Beauty Picks post! This time, I’ll be outlining all my favorite oils for you, whether it’s for hair, face, body, lips, whatever! I mentioned this on twitter but I was really surprised when I thought of the idea to do this post because growing up, I always equated the word “oil” with “breakouts”. From magazines, I was taught at a young age that oils were a big no-no for those with oily skin, like me. I religiously went oil-free with all my products, from moisturizer to foundation, for years. As I got older, however, and oil treatments became more and more of a “thing”, I realized that even those with the most oily or acneic skin could indulge in these wondrous oils–it was just all about finding the right one for your skin type! So I decided to put together a post highlighting some of my recommendations for each skin type or use. I hope you enjoy!

–click image to enlarge–

1. Face (Oily Skin): Caudalie Vinopure Balancing Concentrate (aka: Vinopure Purifying Concentrate)

This product was unfortunately discontinued in March but it still is available on and a few other sites online. If you can find it, I highly recommend swiping it up! This is a great option for oily skin. With regular use, it leaves your skin calm and less oily overall. It doesn’t leave a shiny, greasy finish, smells wonderfully invigorating, and doesn’t break me out. Sad they discontinued it :/

2. Face (Dry and/or Dehydrated Skin): Nude Skincare Pro-Genius Treatment Oil*

I received this one a little while ago and while I love it, I don’t think it’s ideal for my acne-prone skin as it broke me out after I used it for 3 nights in a row. It did work well when used sparingly though, providing intense hydration and ridding me of any flaky bits overnight. For this reason, I use it as an emergency hydrating product–especially during the winter-but other than that, I’ve relegated its use to the backs of my hands. I think it would be an amazing option for extremely dry and/or dehydrated skin though. I can just imagine dry skin drinking this stuff up in an instant! It really plumps and smooths the skin beautifully. It might be a bit pricey but it truly works!

3. Face (All Skin Types): May Lindstrom The Youth Dew(review to come)

Ahh…words can’t describe how much I love this oil. I won’t say too much since I have a review for it coming up but I will say that if you haven’t tried this or anything else from May’s line, you need to do so immediately! The well-edited 4-piece line doesn’t leave you feeling confused or overwhelmed–each product is designed to work with all skin types and does what it says it will do. The Youth Dew is SO light and silky smooth, it absorbs into the skin almost immediately and leaves behind the most beautiful, velvety finish. I love this stuff! Again, for my skin type I try not to use it for more than 2 nights in a row but so far, so good–no breakouts!

4. Face (All Skin Types): Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate

This was actually my very first face oil and I couldn’t have made a better choice. It really sinks into the skin quite beautifully and while it does a good job of hydrating, it’s not too rich or heavy–perfect for all skin types! I have never broken out from this but then, I’ve also never used it for longer than 4 consecutive days for fear or breakouts. Still, my oily skin wouldn’t need much more than that anyway–by then, the oil concentrate would’ve already done it’s job and hydrated and conditioned my skin. I would then switch to my stronger skincare products until I needed a little extra TLC again.

What I also love about this one is the lovely calming lavender scent. A trick of mine is to put 3-4 drops on my fingers and slightly warm it up then press into my pillow case. The lavender scent is soothing at night and helps me fall asleep (I used to put it on my girlfriends’ pillows all the time when they couldn’t sleep!). An added bonus: it lightly conditions your skin and hair overnight!

5. Face (Very Dry or Mature Skin Types): REN Bio-Retinoid Anti-Ageing Concentrate*

My apologies–I forgot to photograph this one along with the others. But I have reviewed it before so click on the link above if you’re interested in seeing it.

This oil is very rich and smells so heavenly–like apricots! It also contains natural retinol so it’s a great, natural anti-aging product for mature skin!

6. Hair: Leonor Greyl Huile de Palme*

Hands down the best hair oil I have ever tried. I don’t know if I’ve told you guys this but the smell of a hair product is a huge factor in whether or not I will use it/like it. I am very picky about how my hair smells, which is about 90% of the reason I don’t use hair styling products–I just don’t like how most of them smell. But I loove how this hair oil smells. It works really well as a leave-in hair treatment but I also use it as a styling product of sorts. I find that a few drops applied to the ends of my hair after showering not only keeps my hair soft and shiny but also gives me those gorgeous, slightly peice-y separated ends that everyone loves. It also protects your hair from the sun. I’ve been spending a lot of time outside so I like that it makes my hair look and feel good and helps keep it looking that way!

7. Body: May Lindstrom The Good Stuff* (review to come)

Another winner from May Lindstrom’s beautiful artisanal luxury brand, this body oil is one of the lightest, silkiest oils I have ever tried. Not only is the texture beautiful but it’s wonderfully hydrating, smells amazing, and the little golden shimmer particles really add a luxe feel! Can’t wait to tell you guys more about this one!

8. Body: Bare Love Beauty Luxury Body Fuel*

I received this one recently and have been using it after showering. It leaves my limbs feeling so smooth, silky, and hydrated! But the real winner for me is the smell. I don’t usually like vanilla scents (or any gourmand-type scents, really) but this body oil changed my mind. It’s very sweet but somehow doesn’t enter into “cloying” territory; it almost smells like a creamy vanilla soy latte. The scent supremely delectable without making me nauseous.

9. Nails/Cuticles: CND SolarOil

This is a great cuticle oil–it’s not greasy but it’s really rich and does an amazing job at moisturizing my raggedy cuticles. No matter how cracked and bleeding my cuticles are, one night’s use of CND’s SolarOil is enough to bring them back to life. With regular use, they look great–always in tip-top shape!

I recently tried Essie’s Apricot Oil for cuticles and while I did like it, I went back to CND because it didn’t contain alcohol or a jumble of other chemicals like Essie’s did–it just contains oil and a bit of fragrance. It’s also nice that SolarOil is easily available at the drugstore–I buy mine at CVS.

10. Lips: Hourglass N°28 Lip Treatment Oil*

Another pretty recently reviewed product–click on the link to read more. This is the first oil-type lip treatment I’ve tried and I was blown away. I use this every single night and my lips have never looked better! Love love love this product!


Remember, if you ever purchase an oil that turns out to be too rich for your skin, you can always use the product on the backs of your hands and décolleté. It really makes a difference and will help keep those areas (which are among some of the first to show age) looking plump and youthful! I like to apply an oil treatment to my hands every night and seal it in with a rich hand cream. Try it–it really works!


*these products were provided to The Beauty Sample free of charge for review purposes. Despite this, my opinions are always honest and I only included products in this post that I truly use and love

    THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH for posting a great cuticle oil, I desperately needed something for my cuticles, I have been struggling to hydrate them no matter HOW many times I use my apricot oil and lotion. Also kiehl’s have such amazing products they havent let me down yet! Last note: am super curious about the youth dew…. ooooo, love the name! Can’t wait! :D

    • becca May 30, 2013 at 11:56 pm #

      The Essie apricot oil? Yeah I definitely like the smell and it’s very light and non-greasy but overall, I just don’t feel like it hydrates and repairs my cuticles as well as my CND SolarOil :/ I definitely recommend you check that one out!

      I really like Kiehl’s too but I haven’t purchased anything new from the line since I had a bad reaction to some of their products. I still want to try their Calendula toner and Midnight Recovery Eye Concentrate, since I had such good luck with the face oil :) What are some of your favorite Kiehl’s products?

  2. Lily May 31, 2013 at 1:19 am #

    OK so I wrote a long comment, but it didn’t seem to load. LOL!
    Have you tried L’Occitane Almond shower oil and supple skin oil? They’re both my favourite body combo for soft skin. Loving Estee Lauder Nutritious Essence Oil for the face too. Many oils I’ve tried broke me out, but this one didn’t.
    A lovely selection you have here. I haven’t tried any of them actually!

    • becca May 31, 2013 at 1:25 am #

      Uh I hate it when that happens! :/

      No I actually haven’t tried too much for L’Occitane, actually. I always hear such good things, especially about their Almond line, and I often purchase their products to give as gifts but surprisingly I still haven’t splurged for myself :/ There are a lot of things I want to try though–I’ll definitely put the shower oil & skin oil on my list! I love almond oil–both the smell and feel of it!

      Is the Nutritious Essence Oil the new one from Estee Lauder?? I wonder if that’s available here…better go check! I am always on the hunt for a good face oil that doesn’t break me out–soo many of them do! :/

      I highly recommend either the NUDE ProGenius or May Lindstrom one…or even the Kiehl’s! That one was my very first oil serum and I was so surprised that it never broke me out! I really want to try the eye cream version now!

  3. Kiss & Make-up May 31, 2013 at 5:18 am #

    Oooh goodie, great post :-) I love how you listed it all by skin type.

    • becca May 31, 2013 at 2:42 pm #

      Thank you!! :D How about you–do you use oils a lot? If so, what are some of your favorites?

  4. sangeetha menon May 31, 2013 at 5:23 am #

    Hi, have you tried the aroma therapy oils ?They are sooo good for skin and hair

    • becca May 31, 2013 at 2:45 pm #

      No I haven’t–what are some of your favorites that you would recommend? I usually just stick with oil blends for my face (but really want to try pure camellia oil next!). I do like using pure tea tree oil as a scalp treatment though–it really invigorates the roots and gets rid of any flakies one might have! :D

  5. Catherine @ bcrueltyfree May 31, 2013 at 9:55 am #

    I totally agree with you about the oils thing… growing up with acne and oily skin, I totally avoided them. Now, they’re like my favorite skincare item ever. Coconut oil… it’s like a Godsend! I actually haven’t ventured too much into higher end oils, I’ve always just gotten mine from health food stores and such, so this post gives me lots of ideas.

    • becca May 31, 2013 at 2:49 pm #

      Haha I know isn’t it weird? It really hit me when I was gathering products to do this post on–I was like “wow–I really am a total convert now!” :P

      I tried pure coconut oil but unfortunately, it didn’t work for my skin OR my scalp–I broke out SO badly from it! I do use it on my body during the winter and sometimes on the ends of my hair but I have others that I like using more, which is why I didn’t include it. I suppose I should have though as a cheaper alternative to all these pricier ones…:/ whoops! :P

  6. Icaria May 31, 2013 at 11:34 am #

    That Hourglass lip treatment is looking more and more tempting I’m quite sure it will be mine but I’ll have to wait a bit, the price is a little high. My all time favorite oil is Liérac’s. I swear I just couldn’t live without it! :)

    • becca May 31, 2013 at 2:51 pm #

      I actually tried Leirac’s and ended up giving it to my mom. It was because of the scent…I think it was a bit too warm and almost seemed amber-y to me, which is not what I was expecting at all when I bought it for the white floral scent. It certainly felt nice though but I am VERY picky about scent so I ended up passing it to my mom. I am dying to try Nuxe’s Huile Prodigieuse though! Have you tried that one?

      • Icaria June 1, 2013 at 4:20 am #

        Oh Becca! It’s actually my no 2 favorite and the one I’ve been wearing the most in the past few weeks. Unlike Liérac’s, I didn’t like its fragrance at first but it grew on me and now I just love it. :)

        • becca June 1, 2013 at 2:48 pm #

          Oh interesting. How would you describe it?? I’ve been wanting to try it for years and somehow kind of concocted an idea of how I THOUGHT it would smell in my mind so I’m a little scared I’ll disappoint myself now :P haha! I actually bought the Lierac because I saw it one day while browsing in the drugstore and thought it might be a kind of “dupe” for the Nuxe. Anyway, I’ve heard Nuxe’s described as earthy/flowery, almond & honey-ish, “expensive”, etc. but can’t seem to get a good feel for what it ACTUALLY smells like. LOL!

          • Icaria June 3, 2013 at 9:17 am #

            So different than Liérac for me they’re almost oposites and fit totally different moods. Here is a description I found for Huile Prodigieuse: top notes of citrusy bergamot, mandarin and floral and sparkly orange blossom. At the heart, the velvety floral bouquet of rose, gardenia and magnolia flourishes as the middle notes. Base notes are vanilla and coconut milk. Like I said, I didn’t appreciate it from the get go but after my 3rd or 4th trial I just fell in love with it. :D

          • becca June 3, 2013 at 12:40 pm #

            Oh that’s a good description–thank you so much for providing that! I couldn’t seem to find a good one anywhere :P

            I think I would like the scent based on that description–at least I hope. I tend to like soft white florals more (which was the reason I bought Leirac’s oil) but I feel like I’ve been getting more and more into orange blossom lately. I’ll also be curious to see how the vanilla and coconut milk ground the scent–I’m not too, too into food-y notes like vanilla and coconut but sometimes, it definitely works! :)

  7. Sunny May 31, 2013 at 2:09 pm #

    Oh girl, you know how to get me hyped up! I looove oil! Can’t wait to read your May Lindstrom reviews! Have you tried Caudalie Divine Oil? That’s a nice body oil I’d recommend!

    • becca May 31, 2013 at 2:52 pm #

      I actually finally did a few weeks ago–I just tried it from the tester at Sephora. It smells so heavenly though and so silky! I was going to buy it but I decided to finish up some of these before buying anything else :P I have a LOT of oils!

      And OH you are going to LOVE the May Lindstrom ones, Sunny! They are seriously some of the most fun to use and luxe products I have tested. I am so in love with the brand so far! :D

  8. Appu May 31, 2013 at 2:38 pm #

    I love, love, love the Solar Oil..its a tad light for me, but works amazingly well! Absolutely hated Essie’s Apricot Cuticle oil. It started smelling really funky after a few months and it din’t work at all. I need to try the NUDE Pro-Genius. The thought of my dry skin drinking something up is just so awesome :D :D :D

    • becca May 31, 2013 at 2:55 pm #

      Ooh really? That’s too bad about the Essie oil–I guess I could imagine something like that happening though. It just didn’t seem…right to me. It didn’t seem natural. It’s a cuticle oil for goodness sake–why mess with all those chemicals when you really don’t need to?! The CND definitely works out better for me. Do you apply a thick hand cream after applying cuticle oil, Appu? I find that doing that helps lock in the oil on my cuticles much better!

      Yes for dry skin, the NUDE oil is an absolute must-have! I’ve read a lot of reviews where even people with combination-oily skin love it (if used sparingly) so I think it would be fantastic for dry skin!! :D

  9. Taylor May 31, 2013 at 6:41 pm #

    You have a gorgeous collection here! I must try all May Lindstrom! The Good Stuff is especially exquisite. I love my Kahina Argan Oil and RMS beauty oil. I’m really just crazy for everything oil, it feels so luxurious and I find it so more more effective.

    • becca May 31, 2013 at 7:31 pm #

      Thank you, Taylor! I know I just loove oils too–it’s incredible how much good they can do so quickly! And there are so many different variations and blends–so much fun! :D

      I wish I could try the RMS Beauty Oil because I just love RMS’ aesthetic and philosophy but I know the oil is jojoba based and unfortunately, I don’t think my skin does very well with jojoba. :/ I know you keep raving about Kahina too but I tried using Josie Maran’s argan oil on my face just once and broke out so horribly, I’ve been too scared to try anything w/argan oil in it since!

      Oh and if you love May’s The Good Stuff, you will FLIP over The Youth Dew–it’s so silky and light and wonderful! :D

  10. Gummy May 31, 2013 at 8:03 pm #

    Ooooooh this is such a super helpful post and great resource!!! Wow!!! You really know your way around oils :-)

    I tried a sample of the Leonor Greyl a long time ago and it was pretty luxurious and made my hair superbly soft!! I also tried the Caudalie purifying concentrate many years ago and liked it until it started drying me out a bit which seems strange? I haven’t checked the ingredient list since then but it might contain some astringent oils, which would account for the feeling less oily!! Anyhow, I do remember rec’ing it to someone and they loved it!! I have a few more oils I ordered to try out…first up in the passion fruit seed oil (maraca). Used it last night and today (patch testing on my forehead) and so far no sign of irritation! Next I have Cherry Kernel Oil and carrot seed oil. Anyway…after reading your post I think I’d like to experiment with my own body oil blend!! I always thought it seemed like a mess to apply, but I just worked with someone that uses it – she said to apply straight out of the shower w/o drying off and it spreads super easy and soaks in quicker! So I’ll try that once I get a concoction going… LOL! Fingers crossed!! All this to say…from one oil lover to another…fantastic post!!! YAY!!!

    • becca May 31, 2013 at 8:41 pm #

      Aw thank you as always, dear Gummy!! :)

      Yes, always apply oils–whether to face or body–to damp skin. It definitely absorbs a lot quicker that way! I know you like the Avene mineral water spray so I would just spray some all over your skin, press into the skin gently, then apply whatever face oil you are using that night! You’ll see a huge difference, I promise :)

      I loove the Leonor Greyl oil so much–it smells absolutely heavenly! I’ve been skipping the conditioner lately and just apply that to my hair. It’s amazing what just a few drops can do. It makes my hair silky and soft, smell amazing, lightly styles, and protects from the sun! What more could you ask for?? I really want to try the Regenerescence Naturelle next, as I feel like my scalp is constantly in need of a little TLC :/

      Sorry the Caudalie oil didn’t work out for you! But it does contain astringent oils–eucalyptus, lemon peel, rosemary, melissa leaf, etc.–and is definitely best suited for oily skin types!

      I can’t wait to hear what you think of the new oils you’re trying, especially the carrot seed oil! I have tried a few oil blends that contain carrot seed oil and I think it works really well with my oily skin! Plus I love carrots :P haha

  11. Krystle(Baking Beauty) May 31, 2013 at 8:46 pm #

    I love using hair oils, though I still haven’t jumped on the body oil band wagon.

    I’ll have to look into the Leonor Greyl one!

    • becca May 31, 2013 at 9:15 pm #

      What’s your favorite hair oil, Krystle? If you love hair oils, you NEED to try Leonor Greyls–such a lovely, positively luxurious option. Smells great, protects the hair, and really conditions! I will never be without this one again! (one bottle lasts forever though–I’ve been using mine regularly for almost a year and, as you can see, I’ve barely made a dent in the bottle!!)

      Body oils are great too–especially if you are prone to dry, itchy skin like I am. If you don’t want to splash out a lot to begin with, try organic coconut oil–it’s really nice but doesn’t quite sink in to the skin as nicely as some of these blends. If you have some cash to spend, I think you would love the May Lindstrom The Good Stuff oil. It’s soooo rich and silky but doesn’t leave a greasy film on the skin. Plus it contains beautiful gold mica flecks–so pretty! :D :D

  12. fairytalesandcoffee June 1, 2013 at 6:22 pm #

    This post makes me soooo happy because I love oils. My love fades a bit in the summer when my skin overproduces to defcon levels, but I do love it. One thing I have picked up is that omega or rose hip rich oils are not ideal for our oily, acne prone skin. So that’s why Nude’s oil is just not a good go to. I strongly urge you to try Decleor’s Ylang Ylang oil! It’s great for oily skin!

    • becca June 1, 2013 at 6:52 pm #

      Yup–rose hip oil has never worked for my skin, nor does coconut, argan, even pure vit e breaks me out like CRAZY! I thought the NUDE one might break me out but I decided to give it a shot anyway. I definitely like the smooth, plumped up results I got overnight but anything more than that and I definitely break out. :/

      I’ve never tried pure ylang ylang but I know my skin does like the rosemary as well as bay leaf, I believe. Sounds like a really good one for oily skin! It’s definitely going on my list :) Thank you for the recommendation!

  13. Liz June 1, 2013 at 9:58 pm #

    I’m so into oils right now that it’s bordering on ridiculous. It pains me so much that the Nude ProGenius is $20+ more in Canada! I’m sad that it made you break out but it might have done the same to me had I used it consecutive days. It was great in the winter every other night and probably saved my skin from a gazillion new issues.

    It’s taking everything in me to keep from going out to get the Clarins Lotus oil or the Dr. Hauschka for normalizing oily skin. Have you tried either of those? I’d love to know if they actually live up to their claims.

    As for the Caudalie Divine Oil that someone mentioned above, you need to spray that into your hair. It’s the nicest thing to sit somewhere, then get up and sniff your own hair bathed in that wonderful fragrance. SO NICE. :D :D :D

    • becca June 2, 2013 at 1:49 am #

      LOL I did notice that in your recent posts, wifey. Oils really ARE awesome–there’s so many different kinds and different blends…so fun!! :D

      I do love the NUDE oil but yeah, definitely not one I can use consecutively. One night is usually enough to hydrate and calm my skin after several days of using my more potent/active skincare products.

      I haven’t tried either the Clarins or Dr. Hauschka unfortunately. I have heard a LOT of good things about the Clarins one though–veeery curious about that one, indeed! If you do try it, let me know what you think! I also like the ingredients list–my skin does well with rosemary, clary, and hazel oil. The Dr. Hauschka one contains peanut oil, cocoa seed butter, and wheat germ oil, which I am not so sure about. I don’t think I’d try that one personally, but then my skin is VERY acne-prone :/

      I think eventually (once I finish up some of my oil stash!), I’ll get that smaller size of the Divine Oil. It smells so nice! I do that all the time though with the Leonor Greyl hair oil. I am constantly sniffing at my hair and so happy when I swish my hair around and the scent wafts around me! :P It’s the most heavenly scent ever! I can’t remember exactly how the Divine Oil smells now but I actually think the Huile de Palme might beat it, for me!

  14. Toya June 3, 2013 at 9:07 am #

    Honestly, I can’t wait to (hopefully) see what you look like in 20 years…you are going to be the most well-preserved specimen Becca, can you come to my house and teach me how to look after my skin!? I mean I do an OK job but you are just out of sight!! Awesome :)

    I’m really interested in this May Lindstrom stuff now, I’ve heard the brand in passing but I’ll have to do a more in-depth look now!

    • becca June 3, 2013 at 12:37 pm #

      LOLI hope that’s the case but we shall see! I keep telling myself that that’s the only perk to having atrociously oily skin–that I’ll supposedly be less likely to wrinkle! *fingers crossed* :P I definitely do wish we lived closer together though, I would be down for a girls hangout any time to discuss skincare!! Maybe one day…;)

      As for May Lindstrom, it’s an AWESOME brand! I think you’d really love The Youth Dew and The Good Stuff. The other 2 products are amazing but a little…intense, I suppose, so I’m not sure your skin would agree 100% with it :/

  15. Makeup Morsels June 3, 2013 at 9:17 pm #

    LOVE this post, you know how I obsess over oils LOL. Thanks for breaking it down by category, will definitely bookmark this one to have on hand. And you must try Olio Lusso if you ever get the chance! It’s like the gold standard of face oils, and I have a feeling you’d love it :)

    • becca June 3, 2013 at 10:00 pm #

      Thanks MM <3

      Oh I have a feeling I’ll love it too, if not just for the scent :P I’m actually kinda scared to try it because it’s soo pricey but I know I eventually will. EVERYONE raves about it! I’m also dying to try the lip balm–that one looks gorgeous! :D

  16. Jenni @ lifeandlensofbeauty June 4, 2013 at 6:58 am #

    love the idea of this post – lately i’ve been drawn to face oils as well – currently using a Kosmea one, opened a sample of the NUDE one and tried (think that broke me out after a day or two…), a mini Trilogy one just came from my order, and I still looking at the oil from Pai… :D

    • becca June 4, 2013 at 4:09 pm #

      Do you have very acne-prone skin, Jenni? I do and the NUDE skin definitely broke me out with continuous use. If I just use it once in a while overnight, I’m fine. If you have acne-prone skin though, I would be careful with the Pai oil (that is, if you’re talking about the Rosehip one and not the newer Echium & Aramanth one). Rosehip, I have found, does not do so well with acne-prone skin–I break out really easily from it and so does a family member of mine. :/

  17. Vivi June 7, 2013 at 8:54 pm #

    Thank you for this post! I’m a huge face oil lover… switched to face oils about 4 years ago and haven’t looked back every since. Strayed sometimes but I always switched back to oils.

    I’m currently in love with my facial oil from MVOrganics but I want to try something else since I’ve been using it for a long time. Will wait for your review on May Lindstrom’s Youth Dew!

    • becca June 7, 2013 at 9:00 pm #

      Of coures, Vivi–glad you enjoyed the post! :D

      I’ve never heard of MVOrganics but I’m curious now–will definitely Google the brand and read up on it! :D What are some of your favorite oils?

      The May Lindstrom Youth Dew is AMAZING–can’t use it as often as I can some other oils but man does it make my face glow! I’ve really fallen in love with her whole line–THAT is how you do luxury organic beauty! :D

  18. Meryl @ Memoiselle June 8, 2013 at 6:58 pm #

    AAaackkk I love this post!! I am currently in love with oils too; for body, hair and face. My current take for my face oil is Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery and for my body is Caudalie Dvine Oil. I would really love to try that Hourglass lip oil but sadly Hourglass isn’t available in Singapore anymore.

    • becca June 8, 2013 at 8:26 pm #

      Whaaat–it isn’t?? Since when? Aw that’s too bad, sorry Meryl :/ But I am glad you are liking the Kiehl’s oil! I am so lucky that that was the first face oil I ever purchased–if I had bought one that immediately broke me out, I probably would’ve been scared away from oils for a long, long time! :P

      I always hear such good things about the Caudalie Divine Oil so I definitely plan on giving that one a try once I finish up some of these other oils I have lying around :P I did smell it in-store though and it is so lovely!

    That Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery is the next thing on my list!

      Oooh really? That’s a good one! I remember when you put the Midnight Recovery Eye Concentrate on your wishlist (…right? :P)–I REALLY want to try that one since the face version is so awesome! The smell is just so heavenly and calming too! :D
