Six of the best beauty products powered by oil
Before you run and hide after reading the word ‘oil’ and picturing greasy roots, combination skin or the oils that simmer in your fry pan, it’s important to realise that different oils carry different benefits, especially in beauty. And while oily hair and skin are not ideal, oil itself is actually a pretty amazing ingredient for your skin, your body and especially your hair when it’s found in beauty products.
So check out some of the awesome beauty buys powered by oil that should be high up on your hit list…
This nourishing at-home hair colour effectively replaces ammonia with an Oil Delivery System that consists of a blend of flower oils that work to propel hair colour deep into the hair fibre without damaging your hair. The best bit? This pampering, permanent at-home hair colour allows you to achieve rich, vibrant, long-lasting colour that won’t damage your hair shaft or produce strong, chemically smells. Plus it also effectively covers grey hairs, too! It’s set to become the at-home hair colour you (and your hair) can well and truly depend on.
Olive and jojoba oils found in this soothing cleansing oil work to dissolve make-up and gently rid your skin of impurities, without you having to pull or tug at your delicate skin. The nourishing oils act as a lubricant to help glide the grime away and leave you with soft, pampered skin, while maintaining your skin’s natural moisture levels.
No one likes the look or feel of dry, chapped lips, and luckily, no one has to experience it - as long as they use this wonderfully nourishing lipstick from La Biosthetique. Featuring apricot kernel oil and rice germ oil, this silky, lustrous lipstick delivers maximum colour in just the first swipe. This is largely due to the smooth, totally hydrating oils, which assist in delivering the pigment to your lips seamlessly.
You know how sometimes your eyeshadow creases on your eyelids and the powder is seen to seep into the fine lines and make them look really pronounced? Yeah, it’s pretty much the pits – and I’ll have you know that it’s due to your eyelids not being a smooth, hydrated canvas for your eyeshadow. Australis Paparazzi Perfect High Definition Eyeshadows are enriched with jojoba and grape seed oil, making eyeshadow application silky smooth and totally hydrating for your eyelids, too.
Enriched with an impressive line-up of oils (think grape seed, sunflower, avocado and rosehip oil – just to name a few), this light version of the original fragrance is also paraben and sulphate-free. The silky fluid glides over your skin with ease, leaving a nourishing, deliciously scented perfume trail behind.
This multi-use dry oil features a combination of six plant oils, including macadamia, St. John’s Wort, and hazelnut oils to effectively hydrate your skin. It also comes complete with a shimmering element to impart a radiant glow (bonus!) Formulated to nourish, repair and soften your face, body and hair, NUXE Huile Prodigieuse OR® is the perfect multi-tasking, oil-powered product to carry around in your handbag.
