A little while ago Beauty Oils Co. asked if I'd like to try out some of their new products. I had been an avid user of Argan Oil for several months, and since I was just about out of it, wanted to see if there was a less expensive alternative. I have extremely dry skin on my face (my doctor say it's Seborrheic Dermatitis), and never had any luck with creams and lotions. Basically I needed something that would keep the redness down from the inflammation as well as keep the dryness under wraps so it didn't become super embarrassing. Beauty Oils Co. decided to send bottles of Grapeseed Oil (2oz), Pomegranate Oil (1oz), and Rosehip Oil (1oz) for me to try out. I'm still a newb when it comes to using beauty oils so this was whole new grounds for beauty exploration.
"Based in Pasadena, California, BEAUTYOILS.CO is your one-stop shop for premium all-natural beauty oils at great prices.

Our beauty oils range from rare and luxurious such as argan oil, rosehip seed oil, and pomegranate seed oil to versatile like apricot kernel oil, grapeseed oil, and sweet almond oil." ~ Beauty Oils Co.
I made sure to try all three on my face since that's where I really needed the most help with moisturizing. Unfortunately for me I found the Pomegranate Oil and the Rosehip Oil a little too heavy and/or greasy. I don't think there is anything wrong with these oils, but for what I needed them for, they were just not going to work. With a naturally oilier face combined with the extreme dryness, I needed something that wasn't going to add to any of the issues. The Grapeseed Oil however, has become my godsend.
Grapeseed Oil Features:
- 100% Pure Grapeseed Oil
- Full of Antioxidants & Fatty Acids
- Helps Keep Skin Firm & Fight Signs of Aging
- Helps Keep Complexion Clear
- Light & Non-Greasy
- Easily Absorbed
- Fights Dryness
- Can be used on Body or Face
The Grapeseed Oil feels lighter than the other two, even though I think the Pomegranate is supposed to be a very lightweight anti-inflammatory oil. I use this every morning after getting out of the shower. I find that it absorbs extremely quickly. Just a couple of drops (half a squirt) is plenty to take care of my problem areas, and moisturize the rest of my face that my facial soap dries out. I also use a water based foundation, and I haven't had any issues using the oil and then shortly afterwards applying my makeup. The redness on my face is kept to a minimum, and I can mostly control my dry issues on my face, even at its worst in the Winter months.
I have to say I'm really kind of liking the plastic squirt bottles they come in. I've had some in glass and I'm terrified my kids are going to get into the bathroom and break the bottle. They have quite the knack for being little destructors. The squirt/pump feature is also nice. Makes things a little easier than squeezing something out of a tube, or a little dropper. I say this even though I'm a super klutz and manage to squirt the oil on my bathroom mirror or into my eyes.
One thing I LOVE about this entire line of products is that it is affordable. This is definitely a line of products for the money conscious consumer. If you're also like me, and aren't quite sure what you're looking for, you could certainly purchase a couple of different products without breaking the bank. I have to say I'm mulling over purchasing the Hemp Seed Oil and the Sweet Almond Oil. (I've had some great successes with products containing these oils in the past, and I think these could be really awesome.)
