15 best face oils for every skin type.

WRITTEN BY Grove Collaborative • 24 min read

Oily skin scares us so much that sometimes we can avoid face oils altogether just because we have the false idea that if we use them we’ll automatically have oily skin we can’t fix. That’s simply just not true. Facial oils have numerous benefits for our faces to take advantage of. They can hydrate dry skin, reduce wrinkles, shrink pores, help get rid of pimples, and even serve as a primer for your makeup. They can also calm irritated skin and keep toxins out when used. That's all pretty impressive if you ask us.


If you’re looking to add a facial oil to your skincare routine but you don’t know where to begin, Grove’s got you covered. Scroll down our list of the best face oils for every skin type and shop naturally derived favorites like this Rooted Beauty R7 Complex Facial Oil, among other too-good-to-pass-up picks.

FAQs

What is face oil?

Face oils are meant to help your skin's complexion by locking in moisture to make your skin more hydrated than before. From rosehip oil to argan oil and even vitamin E oil, face oils are made with mostly natural ingredients to boost your skin’s appearance. They’re marketed for different uses — for example, some may be called a daytime oil and some a nighttime oil, but almost all hydrating face oils come in a tear-drop container so that the oil is super easy to apply to your skin whenever the product calls for it.


If you’re wondering if you can use face oils every day, the answer is yes. Facial oils can be used in place of other products like a serum, or they can be used with other facial products to create an elaborate healing routine.


What does face oil do?

Facial oils have many benefits, but probably the biggest bonus of using one is that they help strength your skin by moisturizing it, which leads to better looking skin that literally locks in hydration with each use. Plus, face oil also helps with anti-aging and gives healing properties to your skin too. Other perks to picking a face oil is that it won’t clog pores, but it will give your skin a healthier appearance.


Ready to add a face oil to your everyday facial routine after reading all that? Why wait? Check out our list above of the best face oils for every skin type and choose one that you’ll absolutely love. We’ve pulled together top picks from best-selling brands like Mad Hippie and Acure to make getting started easier than ever.


Does facial oil go on before or after moisturizer?

Hydrating face oil should go on after moisturizer. That’s because face oil is the thickest product in your face care routine, and it can seep under lotion or moisturizer to give your skin all its great benefits. When you’re going to put your face oil on, just make sure your lotion or moisturizer is dry and has already soaked into your skin before you go to apply the oil. If you’re not sure if your moisturizer is dry enough, you can count to 60 before applying your oil or sing the chorus to one of your favorite songs (which is pretty fun) before you apply it.


Most face oils come with a tear-drop applicator to make applying it easy, and you usually only need a few drops. Follow the instructions for your preferred face oil, and you should be good to go.
