By BEAUTY BAY SkinHit Nourishing Oil
Ever since we dropped our Skincare By BEAUTY BAY SkinHit Nourishing Oil a few months back, we haven’t been able to get enough. Enriched with hemp seed oil, this nourishing formula is like a chill out for your skin. Rich in fatty acids that hydrate deep below the surface of the skin, as well as antioxidant-rich rosehip seed oil, this is a powerhouse when it comes to hydrating parched skin. Mix with your favourite moisturisers for extra nourishment.
Aurelia Probiotic Skincare Cell Repair Night Oil
Specially developed to regenerate and repair your skin whilst you sleep, the Aurelia Probiotic Cell Repair Night Oil is skin goodness in a bottle. If you aren’t using probiotics in your skincare routine yet, then now is the time to start. Enriched with a blend of hydrating botanicals, hibiscus, and pomegranate, this night oil intensely moisturises, whilst still feeling lightweight and non-greasy. To make it even better, the neroli and lavender scent will help your drift off into dreamland in seconds.
PSA Skin Midnight Courage Night Oil
If your skin is dry, it doesn’t mean you have to just focus on hydration and drop everything else. The PSA Skin Midnight Courage Oil is the perfect example of a multitasking formula that does so much more than just hydrate the skin. Formulated with 2% retinoid, bakuchiol, and supercharged, omega-rich oils, this is the ultimate oil when it comes to getting great skin. Not only does it reduce the signs of aging, but it helps to balance uneven tone and texture, all whilst providing intense moisture. We’re sold.
The Ordinary 100% Plant-Derived Squalane
Sometimes when it comes down to it, uncomplicated formulas are the ones that produce widespread results. That’s why we love The Ordinary’s 100% Plant-Derived Squalane. This multi-tasking oil is ideal for all skin types, softening and soothing the skin after just one use. Squalane is naturally found in the skin, helping to keep it strong and moisturised – so if you’re looking for non-greasy, lightweight hydration that you can rely on time after time, then this is the oil for you.
Revolution Skincare CBD Oil
CBD – three magic letters that we’ve all become obsessed with in our skincare. The hero ingredient that calms and de-stresses the skin makes this CBD oil a must-have in your collection, dry skin or no dry skin. Loaded with a high concentration of rich fatty acids that help to moisturise, rejuvenate, and protect the skin, this oil shows that great skin doesn’t have to break the bank.

Specially developed to be applied before makeup, this lightweight facial oil sinks in in seconds, revealing a fresh, healthy base that allows your skin to look its best.
