Face oils. Who needs ‘em? Girl, you. Yes, even you who belong to the oily skin family.

Of course, not all of us can decide which is liquid gold for the skin and what could probably be used to fry up some chicken, but breathe a sigh of relief because we’ve got the best face oils of 2022 below, sorted into a nice neat list. 

Best Face Oils For All Skin Types 

Skinstitut Multi-Active Oil 

Price: $49

This multi-tasking, botanical treatment oil deeply hydrates, nourishes, and strengthens both dehydrated and sensitive skin, and regular use improves skin radiance, texture and tone. There's antioxidant protection fights free radicals and helps boost the production of collagen and elastin, and it's light enough to be used morning and night.

Sukin Certified Organic Rose Hip Oil

Price: $39.95

Picture yourself lying in a rose field (sans thorns) while being serenaded by David Le'aupepe at sunset. This is the fantasy that Sukin’s Rosehip Oil serves just with the scent alone. This fast-absorbing oil gets slurped right up by your skin, which in return will be radiant and hydrated as can be. Users of this cult classic also report success using the rosehip oil on dry or itchy skin for relief. 

Best Face Oil For Dry Skin 

BIOSSANCE Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil 

Price: $49

Speaking of dry skin, the Biossance Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil is your girl. A little more potent, this mini powerhouse re-plumps and brightens skin (thanks, vitamin C) as well as coming through with the deep hydration we know and love from oils, upgraded thanks to the addition of squalane. Damascus rose petal extract adds a decadent yet non-irritating scent to the luxury application experience. 

Eye Of Horus Seven Seed Sacred Oil

Hand-blended in Byron Bay, the Seven Seed Sacred Oil combines moringa, Abyssinian, hemp, pomegranate, marula, baobab and Nigella seed oil to boost hydration and stimulate collagen production for softer, smoother skin.
