There was a time that adding oils to your beauty routine was thought of as a big no no... but we're here to tell you that if you haven't done so yet, you're missing out.

Oils do a whole host of wondrous things for your skin and hair, like nourishing and hydrating, conditioning skin and preventing ingrown hairs, and even reducing the signs of aging. And did we mention they even come in the form of that stunning but sheer wash of lip color that everyone is wearing this summer?

If you're ready to give an oil or two a try as part of your beauty routine, start with one (or more!) of our faves below!

Clean Beauty Products We're Obsessed With This Month

Milk Makeup Hydrating Oil

Apricot, avocado, calendula, jojoba and orange peel oils combine to combat dry skin, nourishing it and giving it a healthy sheen. Plus, you can use this formula on your hair and brows for high shine and control.

Lord Jones Royal Oil

There's 1000mg of pure CBD oil in this bottle... and that's pretty much it. Use it alone on your face and body to address issues with dryness, dullness and uneven texture, and fine lines and wrinkles, or add it to your current skincare regimen to give it a little boost.

Playa Ritual Hair Oil

Silicone free and packed with nourishing goodness from natural oils like coconut, apricot, and sunflower, this unique hair oil tames frizz, restores moisture, and gives your hair a ton of shine while protecting from environmental damage.

Highborn Moon Saber Neroli & Blue Tansy Topical CBD

This micro-batch fragrance rollerball has all sorts of goodness going on. Featuring a blend of 420mg full-spectrum CBD oil to help you feel grounded, the delicate florals of Blue Tansy balances your aura while bold and bright Neroli soothes your mood. Plus, it's vegan, sustainably sourced, cruelty-free and paraben free.

Gold Camelia Beauty Oil

This unique oil smells amazing, goes on like a dream and makes your skin feel divine. Accented with flecks of 24k gold, it's actually a multi-tasker that works for face, hair and body to nourish and add radiance. We love using it as the last step of our morning skincare routine, after moisturizing.

Milk Makeup Glow Oil Lip + Cheek

Grab this mini in one of five colors and you'll get a dewy, watercolor-like finish on lips and cheeks with just a hint of beautiful color... but you'll also get a surge of hydration thanks to antioxidant-rich rice bran oil.


Fur Oil

Calling on oils such as grape seed, jojoba, clary sage and tea tree, Fur Oil softens your, uhm, fur, and also clears pores to help with ingrown hair and assist with healthy skin. And while it was formulated for your fur, you can pretty much wear it anywhere.


Kosas Wet Lip Oil Gloss

Pucker up and give your lips a bold wash of color while you nourish them with yummy ingredients designed to plump and hydrate your lips. Part treatment and part lip gloss, this lip treat's active ingredients include hyaluronic acid, peptides and evening primrose oil.

Biossance 100% Squalane Oil

This weightless oil is harvested from renewable sugarcane, and works magic on every kind of skin type. It hydrates, soothes redness, maintains hydration, works wonders on dullness and uneven texture, and leaves your skin feeling baby soft.



Osea Essential Corrective Complex

To the acne-prone out there, this one's for you! With a blend of tea tree oil, white thyme oil and juniper oil, this calming, non-drying blemish solution minimizes the appearance of pores, breakouts and oily-shine. Our colleague swears it gets rid of pimples overnight. Poof!

Milk Makeup Sunshine Oil

Made to be portable with an easy click-pen dispenser, this yummy nourishing oil moisturizes using grape seed, avocado, grapefruit peel, mandarin orange peel, and lemon peel oils combines to offer intense hydration. It works awesome on cuticles, but you can also use it on face and body, wherever you want.


Vintner's Daughter Active Botanical Serum

You've probably heard of this mythical oil, and if you haven't, let us fill you in: it was created by a vintner's daughter (geddit?) who took the principles of wine making and adapted it to skin care. The result is a luxurious blend of highly effective oils that fight the signs of aging and create radiant skin, in just five to six drops.

Herbivore Lapis Facial Oil

This is another good one for blemish-prone skin. Made of precious Blue Tansy oil, this luxurious treatment includes Azulene, which aids in soothing dry irritated skin, reducing the appearance of redness and giving your face a bit of balance. We recommend using it with their Lapis Facial Roller to reduce the appearance of puffiness and soothe redness and blemishes... or, you could go for the Lapis Ritual Kit and get all that, plus a lapis Gua Sha tool, too.
