Have you recently found yourself standing in the beauty aisle wondering what the difference is between facial oil and moisturiser? Are you questioning whether you should switch from one to the other or are you simply wondering if using both is really necessary?

The good folks over at Goodness Natural Beauty Lab are here to save the beauty day. They’ve done all the hard work to help you decide once and for all what the benefits of these skincare products are, how they’re difference and why you should be using both in your skincare routine.

Benefits of Facial Oils

Facial oils: they’re a relatively new kid on the beauty block, but they are taking the industry by storm. When choosing the right facial oil for your routine it’s important to remember the best ones are all natural, such as Goodness Certified Organic Chia Seed Oil that has organic certification from seed to bottle.

A big benefit for many plant-based facial oils is that they can have a similar molecular structure to sebum, the natural oil skin produces on its own, making them super easy and readily absorbed by the skin. In just a few drops, your skin will receive exactly what it likes and needs, as well as promoting anti-inflammatory support, hydration and nourishment.

Another benefit is they are long lasting; a little goes a long way when it comes to using facial oils and you will know if you have used too much if you’re left feeling oily afterwards.

Benefits of Moisturisers

Moisturiser is like an old friend, tried and tested and for good reason too. A blend of oils, extracts, waxes, water and all sorts of ingredients, moisturiser can target certain problems or times of the day depending on the product and your needs.

Moisturising is one of the most important steps of your morning skincare routine and the Goodness Every Morning Moisturiser combines the best nourishing goodness including avocado and coconut oils, bilberry and hibiscus extracts, and the Goodness Certified Organic Chia Seed Oil does the hydrating heavy lifting.

Another benefit to moisturiser is it also perfectly preps the skin for make-up application by helping to create a smoother surface, plus they often having relaxing or invigorating fragrances added to help make your face feel its absolute best.

Differences Between the Two

The main difference between facial oils and moisturiser are the additional ingredients cream-based moisturisers are formulated with. These ‘extra’ ingredients such as honeysuckle, apple and bilberry extracts provide added benefits for the skin.

While a super lightweight facial oil has the power to enrich your skin and is readily absorbed into the skin.

Why You Should Be Using Both

Using both a plant based facial oil and a moisturiser offers more control for your skin. There’s really no right or wrong way to use them and it depends what works best for you and your beauty regime, but here are our tips:

  1. After cleansing, use a plant oil
  2. After cleansing, use a plant oil, then a moisturiser
  3. After cleansing, add a couple of drops of your plant oil to your moisturiser then apply.

By using the same plant oil and day and night moisturisers, you can change up your routine by day or night, by season or as your skin needs more or less attention.
