I don’t use many oil-based products on my face given that I have rather oily and sensitive skin. Nonetheless, I have read a bit about the good benefits of natural oils and learnt that some oil-based products are good fix-it for the face, hair and body. If you are into more natural ingredients, you could consider using such products that are usually free of parabens and other radicals.

Most beauty oils are perfect as moisturisers, with some that are good as makeup remover or facial cleanser (just use one or two drops though). When used on the body, it could help to heal inflammation and improve hydration.

Here are three beauty oils that I would like to introduce in today’s post.

Clarins Huile “Tonic” Body Treatment Oil (S$78)

I have blogged about this previously – this is a perfect treat for toning the body and reducing stretch marks. It is a lightweight oil that contains the essences of geranium, mint and rosemary. It smells so good that it feels like you are having a calming and relaxing spa at home. The product is also very moisturising, leaving your skin toned and silky soft.

The Huile Tonic Body Treatment Oil helps to prevent stretch marks and is a popular product among pregnant ladies. I have heard of many stories of friends who religiously slather on the oil when they are pregnant and they did not have much problem with stretch marks!

VMV Hypoallergenics Know-it Oil (S$33)

This 100% organic virgin coconut oil is a multi-purpose product.  It helps to repair your skin, reduce inflammation and can also be used to nourish your hair.

It has a strong but pleasant aroma of coconut but is a tad heavy in terms of texture. It would be perfect as a moisturiser for those with very dry skin. Apart from that, if you have some scars or marks, you could use apply a little drop of the Know-it Oil to speed up healing process.

The Body Shop Brazil Nut Beautifying Oil (S$22.90)

According to The Body Shop, Brazil Nut is a super skin savior for dry skin as it contains high concentration of antioxidants. This Beautifying Oil is more watery and non-sticky. I also love the sweet nutty scent that is reminiscent of chocolates!

Given its non-greasy nature, I usually apply it on my legs after shaving. It could also be used as a body moisturiser, cuticle oil and even on the dry ends of your hair. I like that this product gets absorbed rather quickly and leave little oily residue.

Do you use any natural oil in your beauty regime? What do you usually use oil-based products for?
