Which Facial Oil is Right For You? We’ll Guide You

Which facial oil is best for you

There’s a facial oil for every skin type and concern.


First things first … if you’re new to facial oils, you may still be wondering which oil is best for you and why you should switch from your favorite creamy moisturizer?

The short answer is this: cream moisturizers, which are a combination of water, waxes and oils might make you feel DRIER as the water evaporates. Many also contain ingredients that can harm rather than help, such as parabens and synthetic fragrances.

While cream moisturizers may offer temporary benefits, they remain on the surface of the skin doing little to minimize lines and wrinkles or improve the health of the deeper dermis layers. While wax holds the moisture in, it can also build up leading to clogged pores. Over time, wax buildup may prevent the nourishing oils from absorbing further diminishing a cream’s benefits.

Olie facial oils, on the other hand, penetrate instantly to hydrate and nourish your skin at a deeper level. They also restore your skin’s natural barrier for long lasting hydration and protection from environmental elements.  Never fear oil newbies, you won’t look like you’ve slathered your face in cooking oil. These are “dry oils,” which means they leave behind a satiny, non-greasy finish. They also have a subtle scent that lifts the spirit that doesn’t linger or compete with other products.

So, which facial oil should you choose?

Honestly, you really can’t go wrong with any of Olie’s facial oils. They all hydrate deeply and offer a bounty of essential fatty acids, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that nourish your skin. That said, there are particular facial oil blends that may be better at solving a specific skin woe you’re facing. The chart below can help you find the right Olie match.

    Hi! I have sensitive skin, and I break out easily. I’m using Annmarie Gianni facial oil for normal/combination skin. This works for my sensitive skin and my acne, but my skin looks dry now so I’m looking for something else. I also have some acne scars I want to fade. So should I go with the Calming Oil or the Rejuvenating Oil? Thank you!

      We recommend the Calming Oil or the Hydrating Oil. Rejuvenating Oil is excellent for fading acne scars but might be too potent for sensitive skin. Hydrating Oil contains primarily Argan and a high concentration of Rosehip oils which is the power duo for both hydration, keeping acne at bay and fading scars. Let us know how you like your selection.

        Thank you so much! I went with the Hydrating Oil and I’m very happy. My skin is free of breakouts and irritation, and the oil is moisturizing enough that I haven’t had to use anything else! Also, my pores are looking smaller. I think my scars are already starting to fade and it helps that I’m not getting any new ones! Thank you!
