Beauty oils have and forever will be my favorite way to combat the dry and lifeless skin / hair. They seem to have some magical properties, which never fail to inject moisture into my skin and locks, making them look healthy and nourished again. Ever since I came out of the oil-free zone a few years back my hair grew a lot and my skin no longer looks as if it’s about to crack any minute. I’ve tried my fair shade of beauty oils and here are the top four that make every day a pamper and help me leave the flakey, brittle days in the past…

Macadamia Healing Oil Treatment (review // here)
Kicking off the oil talk let me introduce you the product that has been a staple in my hair care wardrobe for well over two years and to which I own my now long and happy locks. Basically, the Healing Oil is therapeutic hair oil that helps repair dry and damaged hair and which rejuvenates and nourishes the locks. It is by far hands down the best hair oil I’ve tried and I love the fact that it also offers UV protection and helps massively with tangles. The Macadamia Hair Oil Treatment reduces the drying time and tames down the frizz as well, which is much appreciated. You can mix the oil with your favorite hair masque (here) for ultimate results and you can use it on both wet and dry hair. This gem makes my strands super soft and smooth and helps them look polished and healthy. And just when you thought it couldn’t get any better then that, let me tell you that the oil smells good enough to eat and its lightweight formula absorbs instantly and doesn’t leave any greasy residue. It’s a total winner, ladies – get involved!

Clarins Blue Orchid Face Treatment Oil (here)
Meet the very product that has completely transformed my skin over the past year and which has earned a Holy Grail status with pretty much the first application! This Clarins Treatment Oil has all my skincare needs sorted and if you get one product based on my recommendations this should be it. The one I swear by is Blue Orchid, which is designed for dehydrated skin but there is also one for dry (here) and one for oily/combination (here). The idea behind these oils is that they help balance everything out, revitalise and tone the skin, while restoring its natural radiance. I use Blue Orchid twice a week and three-four drops is all I need for making my skin deeply hydrated, soft, smooth and healthy-looking. This overnight miracle in a bottle evens out my skin tone beautifully and instantly calms down my skin as well. It also makes my not-so-subtle pores nowhere to be seen and it helps with blemishes as well. It either heals them completely or brings them to head (gross I know but it’s true). I’ve noticed that this Clarins facial treatment makes any scaring that I have fade away quickly, which makes me love it even more. Best. Skincare. Product.

Roger&Gallet Huile Gourmande Fleur de Figuier Ultra Nourishing Oil* (here)
I love a good beauty multitasker, so imagine my excitement when I got this body & hair nourishing oil! This Roger&Gallet gem is supposed to smooth both your skin and hair and it’s enriched with 96% natural oil mix of grape, pomegranate, blackcurrant, apricot and sweet almond. It has my soothing, nourishing and antioxidant needs in check and I adore the way it makes my locks and skin feel. Its luxurious rich and silky formula is actually featherligh and sinks in rather fast without leaving oily residue or making me feel sticky. Love. I like to use this beauty in the morning after my shower and I apply it all over my body and at the ends of my hair. The oil makes my skin feel silky soft, beautifully nourished and supple. Hello healthy skin! As for my hair. Roger&Gallet know what they’re doing and my strands get super soft and glossy on the spot. And you wanna know the best part? Huile Gourmande smells incredible and the irresistible blend of figs and grapefruit makes my mornings that much more special and pampering.

L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil (here)
This L’Occitane baby and I go way back and what can I say – it just makes my skin happy. It’s an in-shower essential for those days when my skin’s seriously lacking on the hydration front. It’s one of the most satisfying products to slap on and I love how it takes care of my dry skin. The oil injects moisture into the skin, making it feel replenished, uber soft and deeply hydrated. I like to use it after I’ve gone over with my regular shower gel as I feel like the oil doesn’t have enough cleansing properties on its own but works wonders in locking the moisture in place. What adds to the whole spa-esque experience is the oh-so-divine marzipan scent of the Almond Oil, which is seriously dreamy and relaxing. Go give it a sniff beauties, just go…

Have you tried any of these products before? Which is your favorite beauty oil?

    Looks like I have to try it now.. thanks :D

  16. There's no hair oil like Macadamia. I've been using it for at least five years and it's amazing. I smelled the Fleur de Figuier scent and fell in love with it, I could try the perfume too.
