Beauty Counter Balancing Face Oil: this is the latest facial oil in my collection. I'm still on the fence about this oil as I have had a breakout or two the day after using it. So, I am still trying to narrow down to which specific type of oil is causing the breakout. PROS: light weight, absorbs quickly, and light scent. CONS: as stated one of the ingredients doesn't agree with my skin. I suspect it's the argan and rosehip combination. I find that argan and rosehip can be too rich for my combination skin type (there are other brands where I can use rosehip depending on the grade). Retails $79

*Organic/BiologiqueSIBU Sea Berry Therapy Sea Berry Seed Oil for Problematic Skin: this is one of my faves for travel. Absorbs quickly, non greasy and feels amazing especially when I am feeling dehydrated. I wake up glowing and my skin feels amazing. Retails $19.95 for 10ml ingredients: 100% Therapeutic-grade Sea Berry (sea buckthorn) Seed Oil
OLE HENRIKSEN Pure Truth Youth Activating Oil: Rose hip oil is a hit or miss for my skin type. It can be too rich however this grade absorbs nicely. But, I can't use this daily because of it's richness. This is my go-to when I am working (as a flight attendant). Perfect for those more drying climates. Let dry completely as rose hip can stain pillow sheets. $45 for 15ml ingredients:
The Body Shop Oils of Life Intensely Revitalizing Facial Oil: Love this facial oil! Light weight, absorbs well, and leaves the skin hydrated but not oily.
