I never knew I needed a face oil until I introduced one to my routine. No matter your skin type, face oils are great not only for nourishing skin but also treating certain skin concerns. If your complexion looks dull and dehydrated or your skin barrier is damaged, adding face oils to your routine can do wonders for those issues. Plus, they generate an instant glow!
Face oils can be used all year round to maintain healthy skin, but they’re even more beneficial during the winter months. If you’re searching for the perfect face oil to add to your collection, we’ve rounded up ten of the best from Korean brands that are worth trying this winter:
For oily or acne-prone skin, opt for a lightweight oil such as Haruharu WONDER’s Black Rice Facial Oil. Formulated with sunflower, jojoba, sweet almond and lavender oils, it delivers intense nourishment while protecting and strengthening the skin barrier.
KEEP COOL’s Ocean Deep Blue Oil works great for locking in hydration. With a formula that’s free of artificial fragrances and colorants, this oil plumps up skin and helps you look like you got a full eight hours of sleep. The best part: it’s a multi-purpose oil, so you can also apply onto hair to nourish dry ends!
How do you nourish extremely parched skin? With a few drops of KLAVUU’s Special Care Face Treatment Oil. Containing naturally derived ingredients including Korean pearl extract, jojoba oil, sunflower seed oil and argan oil, this formula will turn your complexion from dry to smooth and hydrated.
AROMATICA’s Organic Neroli Brightening Facial Oil is perfect if you’re after dewy skin. Combining the powers of mandarin, neroli and jasmine oils, the formula soothes skin and brightens the complexion. Whenever your skin looks lackluster, especially during the colder months, reach for this facial oil and you won’t be disappointed.
Featuring a blend of Sahara prickly pear seed oil, jojoba seed oil and sunflower seed oil, Huxley’s Oil Light and More strengthens the skin barrier and protects it from external stressors. Its lightweight texture also absorbs into skin quickly and doesn’t leave a greasy finish.
This oil from Pyunkang Yul has a short but sweet ingredients list that is ideal for a sensitive complexion. Blended with jojoba and sunflower seed oils, shea butter, lemon oil and bergamot fruit oil, the formula brightens skin tone, improves skin texture and reveals healthier, younger-looking skin. It’s also formulated with rosemary leaf, lavender and geranium oils to soothe irritated skin.
iUNIK’s Noni Light Oil Serum helps improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, thanks to the noni fruit extracts and natural plant oils such as macadamia nut and rosehip oils in the ingredients. It quenches skin with an ample dose of moisture and leaves a natural glow.
Need something to soothe stressed-out skin during the holiday season? NATUREKIND’s Carrot Seed Oil provides much-needed relief with a formula designed to help balance skin, leaving it looking healthier and glowing.
Want to treat your skin with something more luxurious? Jinyulhyang Red Wild Ginseng Facial Oil from The History of Whoo adds the perfect amount of moisture to skin, and those with oily skin can benefit from it too. Use it alone or add a couple of drops to your moisturizer to restore skin’s suppleness.
The price tag may be steep but it will be worth the investment!
