Best Oils hair, face and Body.................

I love oil, love it I tell you *bizarre fervour and glazed look in the eye*. I use it as a cleanser, a moisturiser, a hair/scalp treatment, in my bath and as a body moisturiser.
Oil dissolves oil. Your skin naturally lubricates itself with oil, oil also heals, protects, and moisturises your skin so that it may function properly.
 Yes I am obsessed with oils somewhat, but that means that I am a bit of an oil aficionado and here are my all time favourites............................

Favourite cleansing oil:
Nude Skincare- Cleansing Oil 100ml £24

This is so gentle but very effective, contains Omega 3 rich oils and Vitamin E, a light aroma of Gardenia and Jasmine, it turns into a soft milk and dissolves make up beautifully- excellent for all skin types and no mineral oils.

Favourite oil to remove strong/waterproof eye make up:
Moa- The Green Balm- 50ml £9.95

Ok technically not an eye make up remover and technically not an oil, but it melts away even the most stubborn eye makeup/pigment and it is solidified oil mixed with a little yarrow with a little beeswax, safe to use around the eyes and just amazing how it *lifts* heavy make up (from the whole face like a cleansing balm).

Favourite Anti ageing oil :
Sophyto-Tocotrienol Super Skin Concentrate-30ml £36

Rich in Alpha, beta, delta, gamma and Vitamin E oils , it repairs environmentally stressed skin. It contains amazing ingredients like: rosehip, pomegranate, raspberry and cranberry, it is perfect to give your skin a youthful radiant, healthier look. It disappears so easily into the skin and leaves a very *comfortable* feel.

Favourite treatment oil *night* or dry skin treat :

Nude Skincare- ProGenius I think 30ml and around £60
Packed with nourishing oils, 2/3 drops leaves the skin smooth, soft and hydrated skin, it  can even be added to your foundation 1 or 2 drops to give your skin a beautiful glow. Contains Apricot, Almond, Macadamia, Damascus Rose and Omega 3,6,7 & 9 oils. A fantastic *booster* for skin in need of a little TLC.

Favourite treatment oil/combination skins:
Dr Hauschka Normalizing Day oil- 30ml £22.95

This is the oil that is suitable for combination/oily/blemish prone skin. It is a lighter weight oil and leaves zero residue. It is packed with ingredients that soothe, will over time prevent excess oiliness, are anti-inflammatory and healing: Kidney Vetch, Carrot root, St John's Wort, Calendula, Apricot Kernel, sweet almond but please note peanut also.

Favourite Scalp/hair oil:
KantaKrupa oil 100ml £32.50

This is an oil that is used as a pre-wash for hair and scalp, it soothes an irritated scalp, nourishes hair and can be left on as an over night treatment. I even use this as a protective pre-swimming treatment. It washes easily out of the hair and leaves hair softer and shinier than just shampoo and conditioner, enriched with rosemary and jasmine in a coconut oil base, it is blissful.

Favourite Body oil:

Pure Fiji Body oil- 235ml £26.50
 This is a moisturising body oil that can be used a couple of drops in the bath water too. There is a whole selection of natural aromas from orange blossom, white ginger lily, frangipani etc etc. Made on the island of Fiji they use natural and raw ingredients sourced from the island. It is a beautiful texture that leaves body skin with a soft touch and delicate sheen. The aromas are just divine too not cloying, just delicately scented.
