The Powerful Benefits of Using Face Oils in Your Everyday Skincare Routine

Reparative, nourishing, softening – there is so much to love about face oils. With their unique properties and undeniable benefits for all skin types, face oils are the perfect choice for those who are looking to revitalise their skin and achieve a naturally radiant complexion.

Lightweight yet powerful, our Face Oil is plant-based and clinically proven to reduce moisture loss, reinforce the hydrolipid skin barrier and improve skin firmness. Enriched with bilberry seed oil, astaxanthin, a potent antioxidant derived from blood rain algae extract and apricot kernel oil, its fast-absorbing formula feeds the skin with essential lipids, vitamins and antioxidants, effectively replenishing and locking in moisture, for lasting comfort and a healthy glow.

What are Face Oils?

Typically formulated with a blend of natural oils, face oils enhance the benefits of your skincare routine and work alongside your skin to deliver optimal results. Many of the oils used in face oils are similar in composition to the natural lipids produced by the skin. By using facial oils, you are complementing these naturally occurring lipids to help restore balance to the skin.

What Are the Differences Between Face Oils and Serums?

Serums are typically water-based humectants, while face oils are oil-based occlusives. Face oils do not have the ability to draw ambient water into the skin like serums can, but they are masters at retaining moisture and preventing it from evaporating from the skin’s surface; a process known as transepidermal water loss, or TEWL for short.

What Are the Benefits of Face Oils?

While each type of oil has its own unique properties, we designed our Face Oil as the ultimate multi-tasker; delivering effective replenishment and nourishment for all skin types, while addressing many other concerns.

Face Oils Provide Long-Lasting Moisture

If you are looking for a skincare product that provides lasting comfort, look no further than a face oil. Because they are oil-based, face oils are absorbed easily into the skin and can increase moisture levels for hours. When used after serums, face oils help to lock in active ingredients and moisture, ensuring that your skin stays hydrated throughout the day.

Face Oils Nourish the Skin with Essential Nutrients

In addition to providing lasting moisture, face oils can also nourish the skin with a range of essential lipids, vitamins and antioxidants. These nourishing compounds help to promote healthy skin barrier function, reduce irritation, and protect the skin from damaging environmental aggressors.

Face Oils Help to Boost Radiance

One of the most powerful benefits of facial oils for all skin types is their ability to deliver a naturally radiant complexion. Plant-based facial oils are rich in vitamins and antioxidants that help to reduce the appearance of skin discoloration and improve the overall tone of the skin, leaving it looking glowing and youthful.

Face Oils Help to Reduce the Signs of Ageing

As the skin ages, it becomes dryer, thinner and less elastic, making it more prone to the visible signs of ageing. By delivering essential lipids, lasting moisture, and nourishing nutrients, facial oils plump and firm the skin and restore its natural elasticity, smooth skin texture and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

How to Use a Face Oil

For optimal results, it is important to apply your skincare products in the correct order. We recommend layering your skincare products in order of weight. Start with thinner, lightweight products such as Vitamin C Complex, and leave heavier products such as oils and moisturisers such as Nourishing Day Cream or Nourishing Night Cream towards the end of your routine. Susanne Kaufmann Face Oil has been created to be adaptable, so you can use it to enrich your daily routine in a variety of ways.


"This is such a versatile, effective oil and you can use it on damp skin post-cleanse however you choose – as a beautiful base, to aid massage, to nourish, revive, repair and protect " Susanne Kaufmann, Founder

    • For everyday use, apply 3-4 drops of our Face Oil to damp skin on face, neck and décolletage after cleansing or after lighter serums morning and night.
    • To reduce the number of steps in your routine, add our Face Oil into your moisturiser and then blend together in the palm of your hand before smoothing over your face.
    • Incorporate our Face Oil into your body care for an intensely nourishing treatment.
    • Use our Face Oil for a full facial massage to gently stroke the skin without tugging.

Why Apply Face Oil to Damp Skin?

Damp skin is permeable and more receptive to the active ingredients in skincare. When a product like Susanne Kaufmann Face Oil is applied to damp skin, more moisture can be sealed in because of water sitting on the skin’s surface. A little extra moisture also helps lipid-rich oils go further, which prevents the skin from becoming overloaded. As an alternative to water, for extra protection against moisture loss, try using Multi-Protection Mist to damp the skin before applying face oil.

What is The Best Product to Pair with Face Oil?

Once or twice a week, prepare your skin with Enzyme Exfoliator before applying our Face Oil. The fruit enzymes in Enzyme Exfoliator help to remove dead skin cells, while Ectoin increases the skin’s capacity to store moisture, which maximises the efficiency of the oil.
