I have dry skin and am looking for a suitable facial oil to use and was wondering if anyone had tried any that they could recommend?

Also does anyone make their own, and if so do they find them better that branded oils?

Thank you

I would probably start off with jojoba or olive oil. I get my oils from garden of wisdom.

Sundari has an amazing facial oil but it is very pricey. I got mine at an end of year clearance for 50% off and it lasted for 6 months. I'm using Bobbi Brown'ss oil now but I don't think it absorbs as well.

Argan oil, emu, squalene, macadamia nut oil, avocado, almond, tamanu, etc. all I know is that they are good for skin so cannot comment on their specific properties.

I second all of these - and I would definitely just purchase 100% pure oils from a reputable seller instead of purchasing a brand name one.

For facial oils, i would definitely DIY - it's just so much better for your skin, not to mention cheaper. Despite having several teething problems, i can quite honestly say that i have noticed changes in my skin after only a few days/weeks of using natural oils DIY-style. I haven't had such improvements from commercial brands even when using them for months/years.

I've got oily skin, so i'm not sure what to actually recommend for dry skin. I do know that jojoba is very close to skin sebum and works very well with skin. Castor and olive oil are good for cleansing. Rosehip i believe can help with wrinkles. I am also using tamanu oil with - so far - brillian results as a spot-treatment for my red post-acne marks. A lot of women also swear by argan oil to give the face a glow.

Thank you everyone. I have just purchased some almond oil and am going to try that.

Depending on your skin qualities - some oils may be too heavy, so you can experiment or mix - avocado oil is amazing, so is sweet almond. Some swear by hazelnut or apricot kernel oil.
Rosehip and evening primrose oils are miracles, but you probably want to use them in combination with main oil.
Grapeseed is a good light oil you use as a base and add others to it.

I will suggest Sundari facial oil, but a little bit expensive. Buy it from EDS if you have a member discount.

Jojoba oil is very good, is the most pro-oil into the skin's surface, very easy to absorb, moisturizing ability is quite remarkable

I am loving jojoba oil. I started out innocently just applying to my face (acne-prone) and now I slather it all over after a luxurious bath. I sleep with it rubbed into my scalp at least once a week. I add it to hand lotion. This has actually been the first winter for me that I have felt hydrated from head to toe!

My favorite is argan oil (I have combo skin), though I also like to use it with a little bit of tamanu oil. Here's a full review on the argan oil: http://www.essentialdayspa.com/forum/viewtopic.php?tid=29936

My sister is using Rosehip Oil which works very well for her dry and sensitive skins.

Rosehip oil is loaded with essential fatty acids, which play a huge role in the regeneration of skin cells and repairing damaged tissues. It is great for revitalizing dry and aging skins with no irritations.

It also has wonderful therapeutic benefits to heal eczema, dermatitis and scars.

I use Emu Oil. It's the most natural oil and is supposed to as close to our skin's natural oil than anything else. Not too expensive either.

Ive heard/read jojoba oil is the closest to our natural skin oil and therefore the best to use.

Emu oil comes from...emus - which is gross and it bothers many (myself included) that birds are killed for it - whether byproduct or not.

just my opinion Smile

I stick with Emu Oil- and not the ultra refined stuff. I have nothing against it, but if you super refine something, proven to work as is, do you strip away the good stuff?

I have used emu oil in the past and I liked it, but I didn't end up reordering bc I didn't really like the animal fat idea.

I use tamanu oil at night and sometimes argan oil in the AM. I mix these with HA so it goes on smoothly.

www.mountainroseherbs.com has an extensive menu of organic oils and their uses and properties.
I use rosehip seed oil for its rejuvenating effects!

For those of you that don't like to use animal products, Skinactives have come up with an "emu free" emu oil - it's called Emulator Oil http://www.skinactives.com/product/detail.aspx?prodID=169

I've never used it so don't know what it's like and I guess they're just jumping on the popularity of Emu Oil to market it - but, in general, Skinactives' products are very good.

Incidentally, I've had great results with strengthening my nails using Emu Oil. Since I've been rubbing it into my nails at night, my nails have gone from being completely transparent to opaque. They no longer split, bend or break. I figure that if it's nourishing my nails like this, it must be doing something for my skin!

After reading fawnie and moonstone's comments on this forum I purchased YAH by mama nature that has rosehip oil and avocado oil which are both meant to be great at keeping your skin looking young. This made my skin feel really soft after about a week. I've now been using it for three months and not only is my skin much softer but my cheeks are more plump I think my skin looks out of this world. I am in my mid forties and this is the best my skin has been for the past few years and I have used all of the serums (clarins, olay etc.). Thanks for steering me in the right direction moonstone and fawnie.

I adore Lina Hanson's Global Face Serum - sometimes this is all I use at night and during the day and it provides lasting moisture (not to mention a glowing tone).
Pai's Rosehip ReGenerate Fruit & Seed Oil blend is also wonderful. These are both 100% natural.
