My favorite natural face oils (Mes huiles visage coups de coeur)

Face oils are some of my absolute favourite beauty products. Since the introduction of these little gems as an integral part of my routine I have seen a vast improvement in the condition of my skin, I definitely couldn’t do without them anymore! I have tested quite a few recently but 3 oils stood out from the rest and have done untold amounts of good to my skin. If you are not familiar with the use of oils then a little tip is that oils should always be applied to damp skin as the oil will be better absorbed and will keep the skin hydrated for longer.


Les huiles visage font clairement partie des produits de beauté que je préfère. Depuis que ces petites merveilles sont arrivées dans ma routine, ma peau se porte beaucoup mieux. Je ne pourrais absolument plus m’en passer ! J’en ai testé pas mal ces derniers temps mais 3 huiles sont sorties du lot et ont fait beaucoup de bien à ma peau.

Si vous n’êtes pas encore familier avec l’utilisation des huiles, sachez qu’une huile s’applique sur peau humide (l’humidité est retenue par l’huile). L’huile sera ainsi mieux absorbée et gardera la peau hydratée plus longtemps.

Elixir ‘I Am The Light’ Max and Me – During an event organized by the e-shop Mon Corner B I was fortunate to discover the Austrian brand Max and Me. I had the distinct pleasure of meeting the creators of the brand, Max and Tanja, a couple who talked with absolute love about their passion. They were so open and knowledgeable and talked in depth sharing amazing insights enabling me to learn all about their range of natural and organic care for the face and the body. I was lucky enough to leave the event with some of their products to test including the ‘I Am The Light’ oil which I adore. It is an oil made for treating dull skin. The texture is really soft and light and penetrates into the skin very quickly without leaving any residue. It has a beautiful jasmine scent and I can barely stop sniffing my hands after applying it! Once applied, it leaves the skin bright and plump and I feel that my skin is nourished and perfectly hydrated. The only downside: the price (110 €) is very expensive but since you only need few drops each time it lasts for ages!

Elixir I Am The Light Max and Me – C’est lors d’un événement organisé par l’e-shop Mon Corner B que j’ai découvert la marque Autrichienne Max and Me et rencontré les créateurs Max et Tanja, un joli couple qui parlait avec beaucoup d’amour de leur passion. Ce fut une rencontre riche en découverte mais aussi en échange. Ils nous ont donc présenté toute leur gamme de soins naturels et bio pour le visage et le corps. Et à cette occasion j’ai reçu quelques produits à tester notamment l’huile I am The Light pour laquelle j’ai eu un véritable coup de coeur.
C’est une huile dédiée aux peaux ternes à la texture ultra légère et douce qui pénètre très vite la peau sans laisser de résidu. Elle sent extrêmement bon le jasmin. L’odeur est tellement agréable qu’on aimerait en mettre toutes les 5 minutes ! Elle ravive de suite le teint et je sens que ma peau est bien nourrie et parfaitement hydratée toute la journée. Seul petit bémol : le prix (110€) très très élevé…mais vu qu’on en met très peu à chaque fois, le flacon peut durer une éternité.

Organic Skin La Belle Lune – La Belle Lune is a small English brand that sells only one product, their Organic Skin oil. I use this oil when imperfections, spots and redness appear on my face as my skin often gives me a hard time in periods of stress or extreme fatigue. Thanks to the use of this oil though I can now revive it during these downturns. I apply it in the evening before bed and awake to find my skin soothed and any redness has receded. However, possibly most importantly, it deflates my spots and makes them heal much more quickly. It’s lavender scent is divine and perfect for relaxing before going to sleep, it’s a real treat! I highly recommend this oil it if you have the same skin issues as me. This oil can also be used in the morning as the the texture penetrates the skin quickly not hampering your ability to put makeup on afterwards.

Organic Skin La Belle Lune – La Belle Lune est une petite marque Anglaise qui ne vend qu’un seul produit, l’huile Organic Skin. Cette huile je l’utilise quand imperfections, boutons et rougeurs s’invitent sur mon visage. Souvent en grosses périodes de stress et fatigue extrême, ma peau me fait toujours des misères. Et bien, grâce à l’utilisation de cette huile, elle revit. Je l’applique le soir avant de me coucher et au réveil, ma peau est apaisée, mes rougeurs s’estompent et surtout elle fait dégonfler les boutons et les fait cicatriser bien plus rapidement. J’apprécie particulièrement son odeur de lavande, idéale pour se détendre avant d’aller dormir. C’est un vrai bonheur ! Aussi, elle peut être utilisée le matin car la texture pénètre très rapidement la peau. On peut donc se maquiller facilement après.

Kapha Treatment Oil Samaya – I discovered this British brand in July at Love Natural Love You, an event devoted to natural care, well-being and healthy food. If you live near, or even just visit, London I highly recommend going as you can make some great discoveries. This pretty brand has a lovely pure elegant design which immediately caught my eye so I couldn’t resist one of their products, the Kapha Treatment Oil. This oil is made of a concentrated mix of ayurvedic plants and anti-aging ingredients and is a real jewel! Unlike ‘I Am The Light’ oil the texture of this one is thicker and takes a little longer to penetrate the skin so I only use it in the evening. Due to this I make sure to really take my time massaging my face well. The next day when I wake up I find that my fine lines caused by dehydration are less noticeable and I look less tired. I’ve been using it every night for a month now and my skin feels much smoother and more supple too. This oil is slightly scented with an earthy and herbaceous scent which I would guess comes from the Vetiver essential oil.

Ingredients

Caprylic / Capric Triglycerides, Vitis Vinifera (Grapeseed) Oil, Squalane, Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil*, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Almond) Oil, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil, Withania Somnifera (Ashwagandha) Root Extract, Santalum Spicata (Sandalwood) Oil, Vetiveria Zizanoides (Vetivert) Root Oil, Boswellia Neglecta (Frankincense) Oil*, Curcuma Longa (Turmeric) Root Oil, Centella Asiatica (Gotu Kola) Leaf Extract, Rosa Damascena (Rose) Flower Oil, Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe) Leaf Extract, Spilanthes Acmella (Paracress) Flower Extract, Triticum Vulgare (Wheatgerm) Oil, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Limonene+, Farnesol+, Citronellol+, Geraniol+, Eugenol+

So how about you guys, do you have any favourite face oils? Perhaps you will you be trying out some of my oil recommendations in the near future? I would love to hear what you thought and if you had the same results as me?


Kapha Treatment Oil Samaya – J’ai découvert cette marque British en juillet au salon Love Natural Love You. Un événement consacré aux soins naturels, au bien-être et à l’alimentation saine. Si vous vivez ou êtes de passage à Londres, je vous recommande vivement d’y aller faire un tour, on y fait de chouettes découvertes. Cette jolie marque au design épuré et élégant m’a tout de suite tapé à l’œil. Je suis donc repartie avec un produit, Kahpa Treatment Oil. Cette huile composée d’un mélange concentré de plantes ayurvédiques et d’ingrédients actifs anti-âge est un vrai bijoux ! Contrairement à l’huile I Am The Light, la texture est plus épaisse et met un peu plus de temps à pénétrer la peau du coup je la réserve uniquement pour le soir. Je l’applique en prenant le temps de bien masser mon visage pour bien faire pénétrer. Je l’utilise tous les soirs depuis un mois et j’en suis hyper satisfaite. Mes ridules de déshydratation sont nettement atténuées et le matin au réveil je semble moins fatiguée. Mes traits apparaissent plus lissés. Je sens que ma peau est plus souple et rebondie aussi. Niveau odeur, l’huile est légèrement parfumée avec une senteur terreuse et herbacée, probablement provenant de l’huile essentielle de vétiver.

    My skin is so dry at the moment I should really look into face oils. The Bella Lune products sounds great, especially as I do tend to suffer from breakouts.

    I’m intrigued by La Belle Lune’s face oil… I suffer with PCOS and the spots I get from that are terrible! I could really use something that’s soothing and helps calm them down!

    Sounds like a wonderful brand. I love ayurveda practices and see a few items I would love to try.

    I actually saw products for this brand (Samaya) at a Christmas in July event and I really liked the ethos behind the brand and the ingredients that they use. I like that the oil is scented too x

    I love face oils, since I have a dry skin they are a perfect match for me.

    Coucou!
    La Belle Lune me tente bien mais j’aime tellement déjà celle de Pai en alternance avec le combo nigelle/jojoba + gel d’aloe vera que j’hésite…
    Merci pour ces revues en tout cas!

    Bisous
