What is face oil?
Face oil is a blend of skin-friendly oils often formulated with botanical and herbal ingredients. At Kiehl’s, our facial oil is infused with distilled botanicals and herbal concentrates. These efficacious essential oils provide benefits to skin’s appearance while helping to seal in moisture.
When should you apply face oil?
Apply face oil morning and night. If you are using serum and face oil, apply serum first. During the day, apply face oil after cleansing, then serum if you use one. After your oil, smooth on a moisturizer and sunscreen. At night, apply face oil like Midnight Recovery Concentrate after serum and before a moisturizer.
How do you use face oil?
After cleansing and toning skin and applying serum, apply 2-3 drops of face oil into hands. Gently press fingertips to cheeks, forehead and chin to evenly distribute before massaging into skin. Face oil can be worn alone or under moisturizer.
Can I use face oil on oily skin?
While it may seem counterintuitive, you can use face oil on oily skin. The best face oil for oily skin can help maintain skin balance, keep excess oil at a minimum and even help regulate oil production over time. Certain face oils can treat oily and/or blemish-prone skin and visibly minimize the appearance of pores for a smoother appearance without clogging pores. If you’re concerned about clogging pores, look for non-comedogenic face oil as well as more lightweight oils that absorb quickly into the skin, such as our calmative face oil for problem skin.
Can face oil clog pores?
Face oils, especially lightweight and non-comedogenic face oil, can target your skin concerns without clogging pores. If you’re concerned about skin congestion, we recommend avoiding a comedogenic face oil including mineral oil and unfractionated coconut oil. Try Daily Reviving Concentrate our quickly absorbing, lightweight face oil or our non-comedogenic face oil to treat your skin, without clogging pores or congesting the skin.
What are the benefits of a non-comedogenic face oil?
Non-comedogenic skin care products have been specially formulated to avoid blocking pores. So, a non-comedogenic face oil can treat the skin, without clogging pores and causing skin congestion that can lead to breakouts. If you’re concerned about clogging pores, a non-comedogenic face oil is ideal for keeping the skin decongested and healthy-looking. Discover the benefits of using a non-comedogenic face oil.
What is the difference between face oil and serum?
Both face oil and serum tend to have a high concentration of active ingredients. But the real difference between face oils and serums is that a serum is often a lightweight formula that penetrates skin easily while face oil tends to leave more residue on the skin. Kiehl’s face oils are formulated with botanical and herbal oils, which help improve the skin’s appearance while providing hydration.
Can face oil replace moisturizer?
While face oil replenishes and smoothens skin, your skincare routine can still benefit from the added hydration of a moisturizer. We recommend using an anti-aging face oil and moisturizer together in a skincare routine or as needed to keep your skin hydrated and healthy-looking.
Do you put face oil before or after moisturizer?
When applying face oil and moisturizer, products should be applied in terms of the weight of the formulas, going in order from lightest to heaviest. In most cases, face oil will be applied before a moisturizer in your routine.
Which face oil is best for me?
Kiehl’s face oils are carefully formulated to moisturize the skin and target specific skin concerns. While face oil for dry skin helps add moisture to dry skin types, face oil can truly benefit all skin types – including oily skin. Find our best facial oil for you, for morning or at night.
