You Need These Face Oils To Take You Through The Winter Months

By  | 

Don’t look now but it’s kind of like winter in Mumbai. Yes, you are rolling your eyes, 20 degrees is not winter. But hey, this is Mumbai and we will take everything we get. I mean, of course, Delhi peeps have the kind of weather where they can pull out their sweaters and boots, and even potentially wear them together. Point being, we are experiencing lower temperatures and this calls for a celebration, of course, but also a switch up in our skincare routines. Calm down, it’s not going to be a dramatic change. A quick replacement, if you will. Let’s put the mattifying moisturiser at the back of the vanity for now, it’s time to bring out the big guns. Admit it, the skin is drier than usual. A little flaky, and nowhere in the vicinity of looking nourished and hydrated. Which is why we bring you (or well, these brands bring you) face oils.

Yes, we do make it sound like its genius, because, well, it is. Face oils are a great way to give your skin all the love it needs without the heaviness of creams that could have your skin looking like an unfortunate oil spill. We picked two face oils that could be your holy grail products this winter, and at different price points too!

Kiehl's Daily Reviving Concentrate

Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate (Rs 3500)

This is the lightest oil ever. Okay, we will dial down the drama a little bit. Really though, this face oil is everything you need to make your skin feel moisturised from the inside out. You only need a little bit, you apply it all over the face, using the Instagram technique to get the drops on your face (no, this is not a mandate but it’s always fun) and tap it into the rest of the face. The first thing you notice is the fragrance, this smells fresh and citrusy. And then, after regular use, your skin starts to thank you by looking all glowy and pretty. You’re radiant, like you’re in love or something. Which you are but only with a beauty product, this one to be specific.

Plum Grape Seed & Sea Buckthorn Glow-Restore Face Oils Blend (Rs 775)

First of all, this is a product that comes with a blend of oils and they cherry-picked the best ones. There’s Sea Buckthorn oil which is a great source of Vitamin C, there’s also grape seed oil which helps keep your pores unclogged, and olive oil, and apricot oil and argan oil…you get the drift. This is choc-o-bloc with oils that good things for your skin without the heaviness that normally accompanies them. We would pick this up in a heartbeat.
