Taking care of your skin is more than just a routine now, it's a ritual. An effective skin care routine consists of more than just using a good cleanser and slapping on some moisturizer. Now, it's all about finding products that nourish skin while also helping us feel relaxed and pampered. To that end, there's nothing more luxurious than using a face oil to cap off our nightly routine.
The only caveat? The hefty prices can be intimidating. After all, face oils do undergo some complicated processing steps, since they're typically made from plant-based ingredients. Manufacturers have to use specialized methods to extract the oils that still allow them to retain their natural benefits (cold-pressing is one such method).
Thankfully, gone are the days when face oils only come at expensive prices. These 10 face oils won't put a dent in your budget and are just as good as luxury alternatives.
This face oil from cult-favorite The Ordinary is made from the fruit of marula trees and is cold-pressed and 100% unrefined. The lightweight oil is rich in antioxidants and gives your skin a radiant glow — and you can even apply it to the ends of your hair for an extra boost of hydration.
With a combination of six oils including jojoba, rosehip and evening primrose, this face oil will deeply moisturize and smooth your skin. It's packed with natural antioxidants as well as nourishing vitamins and minerals to nourish.
Argan oil is extracted from the argan tree and can be used to nourish the hair and skin. This face oil is made from 99% natural ingredients and has a non-greasy formula that can be quickly absorbed into the skin (which means it's extra great for applying under makeup).
