I’ve always only really used rosehip oil for my skin but after reading some of Nicola Kilner’s amazing answers in the Q&A on The Ordinary I’m inspired to try some of the other oils she mentioned, particularly the Squalane.
What oils have you guys tried on your skin and what do you love?
@christined I use oils on a daily basis and have for a while… The main skincare brand I’ve used is Antipodes and I’ve used their Avocado and Rosehip oil, Chia seed oil, and I’ve also used Botani Olive oil skin serum.
Hey @ina_j I’ve only ever been on the rosehip bandwagon. What are the differences and benefits of Chia Seed oil and an Olive oil skin serum?
@christined So the Antipodes Chia Seed oil serum actually also contains kiwifruit seed oil too and this one contains lots of antioxidants and fatty acid to help lock in moisture for dry skin. The Botani olive skin serum contains olive squalene which similarly has lots of antioxidant and also increase moisture in the skin and lock it in. Both are really great!
Awesome @ina_j ! And do you recommend one above using rosehip? Like if you were to only use a single oil which would be your top pick?
@christined Hmmm I think Rosehip oil is great its in own way… I do like the olive skin serum over the chia and kiwifruit seed oil since it feels lighter. It also helps with redness and scarring.
