Face oils are like the cake frosting of skincare. Layered on as the last step, a face oil helps lock in moisture to keep everything underneath soft and hydrated. Contrary to popular belief, face oils themselves don't actually hydrate (oil and water!) but they are a key ingredient in making your skin stay plump and radiant for years to come. The best face oils won't just leave your skin looking slick, but will actually deliver a potent dose of active ingredients, too. Ahead, the 11 face oils we love to pat on our skin morning and night.
1 Jasmine Vital Oil
Once you fall in love with this oil's elegant texture and delicious scent, you'll also fall in love with the results. Red algae and niacinamide help brighten, firm, and boost collagen production without leaving a greasy finish.
2 Virgin Marula Luxury Face Oil
Marula seed oil is packed with antioxidants like vitamin E, omega-6, and nine fatty acidsso this is like a daily multivitamin for your face. Great for sensitive skin, we love to wear this oil alone or add a few drops into our moisturizer.
4 Midnight Recovery Concentrate
This fan-favorite oil uses squalane, evening primrose, and lavender to not only lull you to sleepbut to restore your skin overnight. The next morning your skin looks totally refreshed.
5 Honey Grail Ultra-Hydrating Face Oil

Boasting 22 nutrient-rich botanicals and cold- pressed botanical and essential oils, its the ultimate restorative blend. Use it last in your skin care routine to seal in moisture and ensure a serious glow.
7 C.E.O Glow Vitamin C + Turmeric Face Oil
Why use both an oil and a vitamin C serum when you can combine the two? That's the genius of Sunday Riley's C.E.O Glow, which also includes turmeric to help brighten and soothe.
8 Noni Glow Face Oil
This popular face oil pick gets points for feeling lightweight while bringing dry, flaky skin back to life. That's thanks to the organic noni extract, rosehip oil, pomegranate oil, and sea buckthorn oil.
