I really love oils and they truly are skin saviours for my dry, dehydrated skin especially during the British temperamental changes in weather. When it comes to oils they really have to tick certain boxes. Fushi oils tick those boxes and I have been using them for years both for myself and my family. The first oil I ever bought was the Black cumin seed oil that really helped my sons extreme eczema flare ups to the point where it is completely gone (I am not making miracle claims here, but it worked for him!). I love the fact that Fushi oils are all organic, unrefined and cold pressed which is a great sign that you are getting good quality oils. Another indicator, for me, that I’m investing in great products is that each oil is priced differently.
I already loved the Black cumin seed oil and really wanted to try the other oils. So when I saw the Fushi beauty oil mini gift set I was intrigued to give it a try.
The bottles are small and easy to travel with and I like that they are in glass bottles keeping the oil as pure and clean as possible. My only issue is that they are in clear bottles so you have to be careful about storing them away from direct sunlight. Each bottle has 10ml of oil which lasts a surprisingly long time and a little really does go a long way
Remember that if you are using these oils to treat dry skin issues, use them on damp skin to lock in moisture rather than sealing in and creating a barrier on your already dry skin. Use after coming out of the shower or washing your face. I like to mist in between my skincare routine. My Mario Badescu Mists are my go to as they are great for skin and hair! Pixi mists are another great one to spritz before your oil application! They are great as a hair treatment, to moisturise and hydrate skin but also great fir massages!
Avocado oil- (£11 /100ml)
Avocado oil is very rich in Vitamins E and D as well as lecithin and potassium. It penetrates easily and deeply and can be used for dry mature skin and well as for sun damaged skin and for people suffering from Eczema or Psoriasis. It contains collagen supporting aminon-acids and proteins. It is a great skin hydrator and nourishes dry and damaged skin. It can also be used for cooking! (I personally love this for my feet!)
Carrot oil- (£10/ 100ml)
This Carrot Tissue oil is cold pressed from the flesh of whole carrots, making it extremely rich in Beta Carotene, Vitamins D and E and essential fatty acids. It is excellent for sun damaged skin, due to its high content of Beta Carotene. It is a great deep conditioner for the hair and leaves your skin with a beautiful glow. It is a bright orange oil that adds a nice colour to your skin which I love, but be careful as it can stain your clothes. It is a great skin moisturiser and can even be used on minor burns!
Calendula oil- (£ 18/100ml)
Calendula is an excellent calming and soothing herb and its anti-inflammatory properties make it great for infections and irritated skin. Great for eczema (I use it on the kids all the time) and it is great for hydrating the skin, especially in the winter months.
Virgin Argan Oil- (£16 /100ml)
This is a great all rounder! It’s an intensive moisturiser for the skin nails and hair full of vitamin E. Argan oil boosts the circulation and stimulates cell activity and renewal and is great for fine lines and wrinkles. It really has a plumping effect on the skin and I love it as a nourishing hair oil to tame my frizzy curls!
Cherry Oil- (£13 /100ml)
Cherry Seed oil is gorgeous emollient oil that is also rich in natural antioxidants, plus vitamins A and E. Cherry Seed oil is especially beneficial for acne-prone or inflamed skin but be careful to patch test as every oil reacts differently to different people. It is great as an all over moisturiser and I love how silky soft my skin feels after using it!
If you love oils as part of your beauty routine (or for their internal benefits when digested) then I would definitely recommend trying these oils. I love the fact that you can get the try me versions to see if they agree with you! Be aware that some of these oils use Almond Oil as a carrier oil (like the rose and cherry seed oil) so if you are allergic to nut oils keep that in mind.
I would love to know your thoughts on oils and which ones you love!
