Oil Change

A few months ago when I was first introduced to skincare oils, I was adamant that I was not putting that oily stuff anywhere near my face.  After doing some research, I found there were common fears for all different skin types.  Oils are deceiving and most people would shy away from them in fear that: they will make me breakout, my skin is already oily, it will make my face greasy, or I use high end cream moisutizers already that claim to deliver magical benefits.  
Well let's address these concerns because oils are so misunderstood but they really pack some serious punch.
Oils will not make you breakout! Infact, applying oil to already oily skin can help manage pore-clogging sebum.  Sebum is essentially what makes the pimple and yes, these oils will curb that oily sebum that your skin produces even if you are already oily.  
Oil won't make your skin oily.  It absorbs right into your skin delivering kick ass benefits without leaving a greasy residue. If you're looking for extra moisture and radiance, which I'm sure we all are, oils will deliver and your skin will thank you for it. 
My complexion was somewhat lackluster and a dry/oily combination.  Since using oil at night and under my moisturizer/spf in the am, I have seen a major difference in radiance and just generally healthy looking skin.  Also, I tend to have sensitive skin that breaks out easily and there have been no breakouts or funny business at all.  My skin is hooked! 
If you're still worried about breakouts on oily skin, try a lighter oil.  Josie Maran makes a lighter version of the one I'm currently using.  Head into Sephora and ask for free samples of different brands to try out but give each one a fair chance to work before you move on.  
And last but not least, the most important bonus in my books, these oils are all formulated without the use of any parabens, sulfates, phthalates and GMO's.  Impressive right?!

2) Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil Light: This is the featherweight version of the original argan oil that still delivers great benefits and has a semi-matte finish that will not clog pores.

3) Fresh Seaberry Moisturizing Face Oil: This one quenches and calms the skin with omegas that absorb right into the skin for a lit-from-within look.  Your skin will drink this up

4) Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil: Looking for a dewy glow? This one has fast acting vitamin E and essential fatty acids that absorb and moisturize without leaving any residue.  This stuff sinks right in and works well under makeup, sunscreen and moisturizer.
