Face Facts: Why a Face Oil Can Be Your Skin Savior

Target multiple skin concerns with the most luxe of treatments

If the thought of drenching your face in oil gives you baby oil flashbacks, think again. A good face oil is a ubiquitous item for your regimen as a great preventative skincare step or to boost your best routine. Here’s five reasons you need a face oil right now:

They’re generally full of good stuff for your skin.

Though there’s some back and forth on whether oils can actually act as moisturizers, we do know oils contain lots of nourishing ingredients that can repair fine lines and soften texture. Think antioxidants and Vitamins A, C, or E in high concentrations. 

They’re the perfect makeup prep step. And your hair will love it too!

Luminous skin is in. Just look for a lightweight oil like squalane to easily mix with your foundation. Carrier oils will trigger skin to stop overproducing its own oil; leaving behind a non-greasy, glowing complexion. Don’t forget to smooth a bit through your hair to tame flyaways and calm frizz.

They work quickly.

Since face oils sink right into the skin, there’s no wait time to get that lovely, smooth feeling and to help with dull and uneven skin. It’s like a fast-track facial.


They’re self-care extraordinaire.

There’s something indulgent about face oils that makes them a luxe way to get a dose of self-care when you need it most. They feel rich, they smell nice, and plump skin to perfection. Our S.T.A.R. Light™ Retinol Night Oil is the perfect pat on pre-bedtime and great for most skin types.

They’re a great final step to any regimen.

If you’re looking to round out your routine, oils can help take it to the next level by helping lock in ingredients and moisture. Apply your serum and moisturizer first and cap off that regimen with an oil.

A great rule of thumb when it comes to the slick stuff? Choose a face oil that complements your skin type. From oily to acne-prone to dry, there’s an oil that will work for you. Add one to your vanity today and see why oil is so essential.
