Are oils actually good for your face?

Simply put, yes! A natural face oil is absolutely good for your face. Whether it be from the use of even the most gentle of cleansers or just exposure to environmental elements, you will want to replenish the oil that is naturally in your skin. 

A facial oil is EXACTLY what it sounds like. It is an oil based skincare product that is designed to be used on your face.

You want an oil to have a blend of essential fatty acids (EFA’s) or omegas. Our bodies don’t produce EFA’s on their own so we need to supplement them internally and externally. Oils also can contain a mix of essential oils that help to balance the skin and provide therapeutic properties. Oils work perfectly with our skin’s cutaneous and get to the center of the epidermis.

The are so many amazing natural face oils – it wasn’t hard to come up with my top 15!

Most Popular Oils Used for Skincare

Here is a closer look at some of the best oils used in skincare products.

Squalane Oil

A more stable version of squalene oil, which is found naturally in our body but we produce less of it as we age. When applied topically squalane has been shown to be critical in reducing damage caused by free radicals. This damage includes things like fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots to name a few.

Jojoba Oil

This oil is a liquid that comes from the jojoba plant. Historically it has been known to have been used to treat a wide variety of ailments (anything from skin issues, to improvements in liver function or even improved immune function)and studies show it to be an antioxidant, anti-acne and antipsoriasis, anti-inflammatory and antifungal. This makes it a great oil to be used in skincare products.

Rosehip Oil (also called Rosehip Seed Oil)

This oil comes from the fruit of the wild rose bush. It has high levels of fatty acids and antioxidants making it protective against inflammation and oxidative stress.

Chia Seed Oil

Coming from the chia seed, chia oil is heralded for its fast absorbing ability, but also for its antioxidants, minerals, and omega’s. It has even been found to have the highest level of antioxidants ever measured by the Nutritional Science Research Institute – talk about a treat for your skin!

Marula Oil

Coming from the marula fruit that is found in Africa, marula oil has been used for centuries as a way to protect hair and skin against the harsh sun and environment. Beyond being packed full of antioxidants and fatty acids, this oil has been shown to inhibit the enzymes that break down elastin – a major anti-aging benefit!

Blue Tansy Oil

This is definitely the prettiest and most distinct looking oil – coming in a beautiful blue color along with a slightly sweet scent. But beyond that, it is packed with the antioxidant Chamazulene. While this is what is responsible for the blue color, it is also what helps it to calm inflamed and irritated skin along with fighting free radical damage.

Meadowfoam Seed Oil

This oil is packed full of Vitamin E and fatty acids (specifically eicosenoic), meaning not only will it help fight off free radical damage but also has the potential to reduce UV induced skin damage. This study confirmed the antioxidant and anti-aging properties and this study confirmed there are two compounds in this oil that will protect your skin against UV damage.

Prickly Pear Oil

This oil comes from the seed of the prickly pear. It has been shown to have antioxidant and antibacterial properties.

Apricot Oil

This oil has been shown to have anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial properties

Plum Oil

A lightweight oil that is full of skin loving vitamins and fatty acids and has a very slight sweet smell to it. Even better, its full of antioxidants that help fight free radical damage. It’s also rich in Vitamins A and E which will support healing and hydration.

Pomegranate Seed Oil

Full of fatty acids as well as a high concentration of polyphenolic compounds, the pomegranate seed oil is known for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

Baobab Oil

Coming from the baobab tree in Africa, this oil has been known to be used for many purposes inlcuding food, medicinal or skincare. As far as skincare benefits, the anti inflammatory fatty acids presents may help with irritation, redness and even acne. All this while improving the skin’s barrier and helping to lock in hydration.

15 Best Natural Facial Oils

Le Prunier Plum Oil

Best for: All skin types, but especially sensitive, congested and dry skin 

A multi-purpose oil – with just ONE ingredient – that is meant to help balance the skin as well as restore and refresh it.


This oil really takes the cake when it comes to a face oil for many reasons. First, I love how it only has one ingredient. Just one! This keeps things so clean and pure. They step it up a notch and the plum oil is organic too! It is a rich feeling oil and moisturizes the skin so well. There is no greasy residue and it is so lightweight. It also absorbs nicely into the skin. It packs a punch as far as effective facial oils when it comes to working at minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. They have before and after photos on their website that really speak to the effectiveness of the product. It smells like a poppy seed muffin- need I say more?! I really can’t stop using this- SO good.



Maya Chia The Straight A Serum

Best for: Mature skin and acne-prone skin types 

Using chia seed and buriti oil that will moisturize and nourish the skin plus added actives like Encapsulated Retinol, Bakuchiol, Moth Bean extract combined with Vitamin C and Vitamin A – gives you an extremely effective face oil!


This is a very active facial oil. I love that it not only moisturizes with chia oil and buriti but also delivers some serious benefits when it comes to helping target mature skin. Since it not only contains retinol, but also Vitamins C & E, it really works well to not only target fine lines and wrinkles but also brighten skin overall. After using this for 2 months I noticed my hyperpigmentation faded and my skin looked visibly brighter and smoother. It was a completely new youthful look overall. If you’re looking for an oil that delivers on the aging gracefully front, this is it!  



Maya Chia The Super Couple Astaxanthin + Chia Face Oil

Best for: All skin types

This oil combines the omega fatty acids, antioxidants & minerals of chia oil with astaxanthin.  Astaxanthin is an extremely powerful antioxidant that combats things like fine lines and dull skin.


This was the first face oil I used years and years ago that I really fell hard for! I remember using it consistently for just 2 weeks and was amazed at the difference I already saw in my skin. My skin was more even and there was this one hyperpigmentation spot that I already could see was less noticeable. I had a glow to my skin and it was more smooth. I love how this oil melts right into your skin and doesn’t leave behind an oily residue at all. Just plump, balanced skin. I love the slight pinkish hue to the oil. I call it my first love when it comes to a facial oil because it’s what started my love of facial oils!



Maya Super Naked Plum + Chia Face Oil

Best for: Sensitive skin, dry skin.

This product is a combination of 3 ingredients: Organic Chia oil, Organic Virgin Plum oil and Astaxanthin. Making this a simple yet powerful product!


This is Maya Chia’s newest product. It really is another star product in their skincare lineup. You might be thinking what’s the difference. Allow me to explain. The Maya Chia Plum + Chia oil only contains 3 ingredients as opposed to their other facial oils. It also doesn’t have any essential oils in it either. They paired their star ingredient chia oil with plum oil and then infused super antioxidant astaxanthin to it to help combat free radicals. Astaxanthin is 65x stronger than Vitamin C. This oil absorbs quickly and is lightweight. It feels so nourishing on the skin and doesn’t feel heavy. I love how simple the ingredients are, yet powerful. As you read earlier, plum and chia oil alone are both star skin ingredients used to help fight signs of aging and help to add a brightness to the skin. My skin felt so supple and hydrated after using.

BYBI Bakuchiol Booster

Best for: All skin types, especially mature skin.

With just 2 ingredients (squalane and bakuchiol) you can’t go wrong with this oil. This oil aims to improve your skin’s texture while stimulating collagen production – while remaining budget friendly!


This was seriously a find last year! You can find this oil at Target and for only $10 – talk about a steal. It’s so pure and simple too. With just two all star ingredients, squalane and bakuchiol in it. Don’t let the small ingredient list fool you. After using this for several weeks I could notice my skin had a glow to it and brightness. It felt so nourished too. Even my V.A.(virtual assistant) agreed she was impressed with the overall effectiveness. I love the minimal ingredients, price and overall brightness my skin showed.

Best for: Dry, mature skin.

By combining pomegranate seed oil and castor oil with green coffee oil and astaxanthin, this facial oil moisturizes, stimulates collagen synthesis while improving elasticity and skin tone.


This oil is so decadent and rich feeling. It really delivers intense nourishment to the skin. My skin feels so good in the morning after applying it at night. I love that it not only moisturizes but also gives my skin some actives to help fight signs of aging. My skin feels plumped up just like the name suggests. I love that all the ingredients are organic and it’s more of a mid-range price point compared to other clean facial oil brands.  



Beuti Sleep Elixir

Best for: All skin types

This product combines 14 plant oils to nourish the skin with omega fatty acids, vitamins and minerals.


I discovered this oil years ago and fell hard for it and then when I found out The Duchess of Cambridge was a huge fan as well I knew I had discovered something great! I love how this oil has so many omegas in it- my skin instantly feels boosted and plump when using it. I feel like it does it all from targeting signs of aging, to relieving congested skin. It seeps into my skin so well and doesn’t feel greasy. I love how refreshed I look in the morning after using!



Indie Lee Squalane Facial Oil

Best for: Sensitive skin, dry skin, angry skin

A moisturizing facial oil with just a single ingredient – squalane oil derived from olives – this oil will leave your skin soft and nourished


I really, really love squalane oil! I always have a bottle of this in my skincare arsenal. One, it moisturizes my skin so well without it feeling oily, but soaks into the skin perfectly. I also love it because it is a truly pure facial oil with just one ingredient, squalane. Squalane has been known to help moisturize the skin, and calm it, plus it’s even been shown to help with signs of aging. Its ability to penetrate the skin so well is one thing that really sets it apart. My skin even later in the day feels so moisturized. Great to have if you are experiencing extra dry or sensitive skin or even skin inflammation as it just contains one ingredient.

Best for: Dry skin/ mature skin skin, congested/oily skin, or inflamed/red/rosacea skin.

Whenever my skin feels dull I know this oil will perk it right up. Not only does it contain ceramides but also fatty acids and antioxidants. They have three options depending on your skin type. I love the Renew for my dry skin. But if you have oily, congested skin you may..
