Which Oil Is For You?

9th August 2017


A good facial oil is the skin’s best friend, especially as it ages.

Facial oils hydrate, nourish and seal in moisture. And ELEMIS facial oils are abundant in anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals and natural extracts such as superfoods and seaweeds. They are also formulated to be beautifully lightweight and absorb easily, so they suit all skin types. Yes, really, all skin types - even oily skin. This is because facial oils support the moisture barrier, helping to create balance so that the skin is not over-producing natural oils (which is what happens when you strip it with harsh products in an attempt to dry it out and quell the flow). It feels counter-intuitive, but treating oiliness with oil really does work. Combination skin evens right out, and of course, dry skin will drink up as much oil as it needs.

But which ELEMIS facial oil is right for you?


Pro-Collagen Rose Facial Oil

For centuries, roses have been prized for their superior soothing and nourishing benefits, and this exquisitely-scented facial oil is created with a blooming bouquet of Rosa Damascena, Rosehip Seed Oil and our English Rose Oleo Extract. Sourced from a family-owned farm nestled deep in the English countryside, this precious extract is created with 17 varieties of handpicked organic roses that leave skin looking and feeling smooth, soothed and petal soft. Perfect for all skin types, including sensitive skin, the ultra-lightweight formula is enhanced with anti-aging Padina Pavonica and a hydrating cocktail of oils for a wrinkle-reducing, replenishing boost. A few drops are all it takes to see why 98% of people agreed this luxurious oil left their skin looking luminous.*

Superfood Facial Oil

Full to the brim with vitamins, minerals and omegas, this is skin health in a bottle. Ideal for dull skin but perfect for anyone who wants an everyday facial oil that gives skin a radiant, healthy glow, this is an all-round winner (literally, it won Best New Everyday Facial Skincare Product at the CEW Awards 2017, the Oscars of the beauty world). Containing not one, not two but nine superfood oils including Broccoli, Flax Seed and Daikon Radish, it also has a delightful aromatic comprised of Palmarosa, Rosemary and Sweet Orange. It almost sounds good enough to eat. And with 90% of women agreeing that it visibly minimized the appearance of dull skin, we think this is a delicious way to achieve a flawless complexion.

Pro-Definition Facial Oil

Plant stem cells are at the cutting edge of scientific skincare, and Pro-Definition Facial Oil is loaded with Raspberry plant stem cells. Full of powerful liposoluble compounds which have been shown to have both short and long term moisturization activity, these help protect the skin from dehydration. Combined with Ayurvedic Himalayan Gentian to nourish and even out skin tone, Organic Barbary Fig to protect against free radicals, and Evening Primrose oil to take on fine lines and wrinkles (thanks to high levels of Omega-6), this is the oil to give mature skin a luminous lift. Add to this a divine aromatic blend of Clary Sage, Palmarosa and Frankincense to lend a soothing and calming effect, and you have the perfect oil for a lifting facial massage.

Pro-Collagen Marine Oil

The latest addition to the multi award-winning and bestselling Pro-Collagen range. Formulated with a trio of seaweeds (Padina Pavonica, Golden Seaweed and Roaring Water Kelp) that have been specifically chosen for their impressive ability to support moisturization and visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, this is a powerfully efficacious oil which delivers immediate and long-term results. And if you love the gorgeous aromatic blend in your Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm, you will love this oil as it contains the same uplifting notes of Geranium, Lavender, Chamomile, Eucalyptus, Ho Wood, Orange and Clove. A truly sensorial experience that just happens to leave the skin looking more radiant and youthful.

Cellular Recovery Skin Bliss Capsules

These perfectly formed capsules of bliss are antioxidant-rich and ideal for when your skin is having a wobble - that’s a technical term. More specifically, when skin is struggling to find balance, maybe after a bout of illness, after an over-indulgent holiday, or simply from having to put up with the griminess of a daily commute on public transport(!) These easy to apply, perfect doses of Moringa Oil are full of anti-oxidant power to help the skin detoxify itself and are scented with therapeutic essential oils - soothing Rose for the daytime and balancing Lavender for nighttime. The pot comes with 60 capsules, 30 for day and 30 for night, meaning you can set your skin a 30 day challenge to turn itself around - we’ve seen the results, it works.

Peptide⁴ Night Recovery Cream-Oil

Combining the hydration of a moisturizing cream with the protection of an oil, our synchronizing night treatment leaves skin re-balanced, restored and replenished on waking. How does it do this? Skin cells follow a circadian rhythm, a rhythm dictated by the cycles of day and night. At night, the skin repairs and restores itself, and the select ingredients in Peptide⁴  support this process. A yeast-derived peptide helps increase collagen III expression and improve skin renewal. Meanwhile, Night Scented Stock oil, which has up to 10 times the amount of anti-oxidant vitamin E compared with many other oils used in skincare, improves skin elasticity thanks to high levels of essential fatty acids. All in all, this is your beauty sleep in a bottle.
