If there's one thing I can't go without in my beauty arsenal, it would be natural oils. Like many, I was pretty skeptical about them, especially when used on my skin as I feared they would break me out. I did start out by using coconut oil as a facial moisturizer, but after a while realized it was not the best for my acne-prone skin so I've resorted to using it only as an eye makeup remover and body moisturizer as I did start to break out more on my face after a few months of use. After doing some research, I found that some oils are more comedogenic than others, so I've been sticking to low-comedogenic oils such as sesame and rosehip seed oil on my face, both of which have done wonders for my skin. The latest additions to my natural oil collection are the Amoils Healing Natural Oils Simply Face Oil*, Simply Neck Firming Oil* and Simply Hair Oil*. I've been playing with these for the last few weeks and have quickly taken a liking to them, so I wanted to share their benefits with you.
Simply Face Oil (US$34.95, 33 mL) has been a welcome addition to my routine as after only a few days of use I noticed my skin's texture even out quite significantly. A few of the oils in this blend I've previously purchased on their own, namely geranium oil and rosehip oil which I love, so I was happy to see those included. Other ingredients you will find are hazel seed oil, jojoba seed oil, argan oil, chia seed oil, grape seed oil and frankincense. To apply, I ensure my skin is freshly cleansed and I add 3 drops to the palm of my hand and gently rub into my face. It doesn't take too long to absorb and doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy afterwards which is always appreciated.
Simply Firming Neck Oil (US$32.95, 11 mL) works to improve the skin's elasticity and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Now I know what you might be thinking - "girl, you don't even have wrinkles."
True, but I strongly believe in the saying that prevention is key, and really this oil can be used as an all over facial moisturizer too! Apply a few drops to your neck and décolletage and let your skin take in the added hydration and toning. As with all of these blends, they smell super refreshing and are very uplifting.
Simply Hair Oil (US$27.95, 33 mL) is a great option if you deal with unruly hair or if you just want to add nourishment to your ends and scalp. Having wavy hair prone to frizz and flyaways, I've been really enjoying applying just a few drops to my dry locks ear-level down. Not only does it tame my often poofy lion hair, but it also adds shine and makes my hair touchably soft. You can also add a few drops to your hand and massage the oil into your scalp and your ends before shampooing to give your hair a moisture boost. I like leaving the oil in for at least an hour for my hair to reap its benefits before rinsing. This oil is made with a blend of hazel seed oil, sesame seed oil, argan oil, chia seed oil, rosemary leaf oil, cypress leaf oil, geranium oil, and ylang ylang oil.
