Name a more decadent, luxurious skin care product than facial oil-we’re going to wait. Whether cooked from a rosehip base, argan, marula, or blue tansy (among many other varieties), nothing is more hydrating and restorative than an oil. Rich facial oils are suitable for most types of skin — yes, even if you’re prone to acne — and incorporating them into your daily routine is one of your skin’s best things to do. You can expect a glow level out-of-the-charts in the short term. And continuing use with? Clean, plump, good-looking skin.
Caudalie Overnight Detox Oil
Full disclosure: This was literally the facial oil which turned me into a bona-fide devotee, an oily-skinned beauty writer and longtime facial oils skeptic. Unsurprisingly, an Allure Best of Beauty award has been picked up, and although it hydrates, it also helps protect the skin from UV rays and pollution.

Pumpkin may be a well-known fall ingredient but it also has some pretty amazing benefits for skin care. Case in point: Savor the Renew Pumpkin Seed Serum from Beauty, that brightens and nourishes the skin.
Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil
Drunk Elephant Virgin Marula Luxury Oil
Marula oil is well known for its nourishing, multifunctional uses, and Drunk Elephant’s version is one of our favorites of all time. What’s in the bottle is about as natural as it comes (except to remove the marula fruit yourself), and it’s absolutely free from additives and artificial fragrance.
Biossance Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil
Although squalane may sound smooth and rich like an oil, it is actually a fatty acid extracted from the plant that is doing wonders to protect the skin barrier. The material is filled with Biossance Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil and it’s a game-changer for firming and brightening the skin.
Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate
This tiny indigo vial has a justification to regularly top best-seller lists. The Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate includes a supercharged mix of oils (including lavender, evening primrose, and jojoba) and provides a strong dose of hydration by night. Apply a few drops, wake up, shine, repeat, before reaching the bed.
