Should I be using a facial oil?

Facial oils are one of the longest used beauty products out there - but somehow we got brainwashed into thinking they were scary! Lucky for you, Super Oil is a foolproof facial oil designed to moisturize all skin types without clogging pores. It’s also super simple - you know how I hate long ingredient lists. So let’s get into it.

What is a facial oil?

A facial oil is a blend of emollients (typically derived from plants and seeds) meant to moisturize the skin. They can range from being lightweight and absorbing quickly, to being heavier and more deeply moisturizing. Super Oil is right in the middle!

How do I use a facial oil?

A facial oil is typically the most moisturizing step of your routine. It’s designed to nourish the top layers of your skin. That means you want to apply it last! So go through your routine - cleanse, toner, serum or some variation of that - and then finish off with your facial oil! You can also add a drop or two of facial oil to your daily moisturizer during cold months to give it a little extra moisturizing power.

What if I have oily skin?

There’s a common misconception that oily skin types shouldn’t put oil on their skin (hence, the claim ‘oil-free’ that became popular in the 2000s). The truth is, our skin produces its own oils to keep our skin barrier strong. So natural oils are actually quite compatible with oily skin, and in some cases, can help to balance out oily skin types. The key is to look for non-comedogenic oils that won’t clog your pores. Lucky for you, we’ve done the work - Super Oil is designed to work for all skin types!


What are the ingredients in Super Oil?

Every ingredient is Super Oil is bombbbb and is designed to provide a benefit on top of just being great at moisturizing. There’s something for every skin type here.

Camellia Oil
Great for sensitive skin, provides soothing and calming
Argan Oil
The holy grail for dry skin, it has a balanced profile of fatty acids that makes it deeply moisturizing
Jojoba Oil
The oil acne-prone folks swear by. Helps balance out oils in the skin and has a healing effect
Rosehip Oil
Meet your anti-aging bff. Rosehip oil is great for increasing skin elasticity and brightness due to strong natural anti-oxidants called carotenoids.
Vitamin E is a strong antioxidant that is at low levels in the formula to keep the four oils from oxidizing.

How do I use Super Oil?

Anytime, anywhere. I’ve used it on my hands when they get dry as well as under my eyes on a tired day. As a facial moisturizer, it should be the last step in your routine! I recommend cleansing first, then using Power Serum, and topping with Super Oil. It can also be mixed with or used on top of a lotion for next level moisturization.
