With temperatures dropping, we're looking to skincare products that will soothe and nourish our sensitive, dehydrated skin. Enter face oils. But which to choose? When it comes to skincare recommendations, we happily look to A-listers with plump skin and glowing complexions for advice.
Our favourite celebrities are big fans of face oils, though they are not the run-of-the-mill brands you might know. You see, celebs love niche and exclusive brands—and when it comes to face oils, they don't disappoint. They're also not afraid to break the rules (ahem, Khloé) by using body oil on their faces.
Face oils are versatile products. You can apply them straight to your skin at night for an intense treatment or mix a couple of drops into your favourite serum or moisturiser in the morning. Need an extra shot of hydration and protection? Blend your chosen oil with your liquid foundation for a dewy complexion all year round.

Model Olivia Culpo told Byrdie that she mixes vitamin E oil into her moisturiser.
Culpo turns to this vitamin E oil when she needs to add an extra oomph to her skincare routine.
Earlier this year, Kim Kardashian West revealed her morning skincare routine on Snapchat. One of the products she praised was Anastasia Beverly Hills' Hydrating Face Oil (£46) for providing her skin with extra shots of moisture.
Kim's favourite face oil is now available in the UK.
Nicole Scherzinger told InStyle UK that she uses coconut oil on her face. "My favourite skincare treat is raw coconut oil. My aunt extracts it from her coconut tree in Hawaii and sends it to me in jars. It's antibacterial and super-hydrating; you can use it on your body and your face."
Don't have an aunt in Hawaii? We don't either. Try this instead. This cream's contents are extracted from real coconuts, so it has a high concentration of antibacterial lauric acid intact—making it a great choice for acne-prone skin.
Emma Stone revealed to Vogue.com that she keeps Josie Maran's famous argan oil on hand. "That was a game changer. I think my makeup artist, Rachel Goodwin, first introduced me to it, and I love it."
Rich in vitamin E and essential fatty acids, this oil absorbs quickly into the skin, leaving it dewy and smooth.
Khloé Kardashian is not one to do things by the book, as proven by her frequent application of Bio-Oil (yep, the one for stretch marks) to her face. She wrote on her app, "I lay this stuff on really thick at night, go to bed, and let it work its magic."
Kim Kardashian West also swore by Bio-Oil during her two pregnancies. The love for this product runs in the family.
Can you believe actress Gabrielle Union is 44 years old? We can't either—which is why we're willing to use whatever skincare products she does. Union told Elle, "I was lucky enough to work with Julie Hewett, who's a makeup artist who also has her own skincare line. She gave me her face oil … It's really transformed my skin. I've told everybody about it. I'm not a paid spokesperson, but this oil is a godsend. It's amazing."
Hewett's oil is packed with vitamins (A, B, C, E, K and P), as well as various minerals to soothe inflammation, calm redness and tackle scar tissue.
When Well + Good first got wind of Kate Middleton's affinity for plant-based Beauti Skincare Beauty Sleep Elixir, we knew it had to be good.
This sleep elixir aims to fight inflammation that causes the breakdown of elastin and collagen (the building blocks of plump, young skin). What causes inflammation? Pollution, sun exposure, and even over-exfoliation. Slather this on to reduce the effects of these harmful conditions.
