Digital Editor's Picks Oils
1. Mecca Cosmetica Gilded Elixir, $98

This limited edition offering from Mecca blends vitamins A, B and E while including oil extracts from sandalwood nuts, rosehip, jojoba, and avocado. The Gilded Elixir is one of the best for giving your skin a smooth, supple finish, while being light enough to apply daily without clogging pores. No oily or filmy residue here! It can be used as a facial or full-body moisturiser.

BEST FOR: Daily use. Plus it smells divine!

2. Diptyque Voile Satin Art of Body Care Oil, $69

Another formula that can be used in skin or hair to leave both deeply moisturised. Jasmine, ylang ylang and saffron all combine to give hair a light fragrance and glossy finish. The addition of the evanescent oil soothes irritated skin.

BEST FOR: A satiny finish for both skin and hair.

3. Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Oil, $142

The Sunday Riley Luna oil contains cold-pressed avocado oil, and chia and concord grape seed oils. This blend is specifically designed to reduce the appearance of fine lines, while correcting sun and pollution damage to skin. It also contains essential oils to soothe skin and keep redness at bay.

BEST FOR: Reducing fine lines, getting rid of redness and correcting skin damage.

4. Malin+Goetz Chammomile Treatment Oil, $100

The nourishing chamomile and vitamins E and C are especially great for intense hydration. While this was originally developed as a facial massaging oil, it also makes a great all over body oil, or a hair and scalp oil for shine (and to help with pesky dry scalp).

BEST FOR: All-over body oil

5. Tarte Maracuja Oil, $56

Do you suffer from uneven skin tone? Maracuja oil gets right into your layers of skin to rejuvenate the skin and even out your complexion. It also has anti-aging benefits and won’t leave you greasy or filmy.

BEST FOR: Evening out skin tone

6. 100% Natural Jojoba + Rosehip Oil, The Jojoba Company, $24.95

EVERYONE has heard of the reparative benefits of rosehip oil by now (and if you haven’t where have you been?), but did you know jojoba helps the rosehip penetrate to deeper layers of the skin? It also extends the shelf life of the product. Not that we need that, since it's so good we'd go through the bottle pretty quickly!

BEST FOR: Rosehip oil addicts who want to amplify its effectiveness.

7. Ole Henrickson Pure Truth Youth Activating Oil, $60

Concentrated rose hip oil gets the skin’s natural reparative ability going, as well as being a one-stop-shop for vitamin A, C and lots of essential fatty acids. This one is great if you want to restore your youthful glow.

BEST FOR: Restoring youthful skin

8. Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Oil, $15

So you know by now that oils can moisturise the skin, but did you know they can cleanse as well? The Bobbi Brown formula has a blend of jasmin flower extra and kukui nut oil (good for moisturising) with the sunflower, olive and jojoba oils cleansing without leaving skin feeling tight.

BEST FOR: Thorough cleansing with added moisturising benefits.

9. Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil, $66

Packed full of vitamin E and essential fatty acids, argan oils are great for healing damage on not only your skin, but conditioning and protecting your hair and nails as well.

BEST FOR: An all-in-one hair, skin and nails treatment.

10. The Body Shop Instensely Revitalising Facial Oil, $54.95

The key oils blended for this Body Shop product are black cumin seed, camellia seed and rosehip seed. These are known for their restorative properties, as well as their ability to reduce signs of aging. Plus they smell so darn good, it's hard not to slather this one all over!

BEST FOR: Reducing the signs of aging and revitalising tired skin.
