Beautiful Oil's

It seems like over the past couple of year’s oil based beauty products have exploded in the beauty industry. I remember first hearing about the Macadamia Hair Oil and thinking to myself “gross”. Today I’m an oil advocate and truly believe oil-based products can sometimes be more effective then their cream counterparts. So with the cold winter months approaching I thought I would share with you my oil must haves.
Aveda Active Composition Oil
This oil helps sooth achy muscles after working out.
And let’s be honest here ladies I don’t exactly work out!
I love this winter green scented beauty as a relaxing oil. I simply dab some on my arms before bed and I am transported into a spa like sleep. This oil doesn’t just smell great but it also leaves a relaxing tingly sensation and moisturizes the skin lightly.
On a side not Jay thinks this smells like root beer I think it smells like candy canes either way … love!
I’m actually really looking forward to going to bed tonight!
Maybe, I need to check out some other Aveda Oils!

Clarins Blue Lotus Oil
This is such a favorite especially in the cold winter months. I can’t tell you how much of a lifesaver this has been in combination with the Avene Cold Cream. It really has transformed my dry eczema prone skin into amazingly moisturized skin. Clarins Oils are packed with nutrients and they have one to suit every skin type.

Arbonne FC5 Conditioning Oil
So I have a friend who’s an Arbonne sales rep.
If you picture a pushy sales women knocking/calling/annoying you all the time ladies you have the wrong picture. Her love for Arbonne is straightforward she just likes the product and welcomed the idea of selling it… simple.
So when she told me how much she loved the Conditioning Oil, I had to try it.
This is nutrient rich oil is amazing for your cuticles, face and body. However, unlike any other skin oils I own what makes this so useful is the portability of it. I keep one of these in my purse and have been finding it very useful now that the weather has cooled down. I love this and see myself getting good use out of this.

Coconut Oil (not photographed, but any extra virgin coconut oil will do)
This is one of those beauty miracle products that do just about everything.
Personally my favorite use for coconut oil is as a deep conditioner. I simply work a handful into the tips of my hair and gradually work upwards. Next I tie a bun and wait at least one hour before washing it out. You might need to shampoo your roots twice but its well worth the astonishingly soft hair your left with. I’ve tried a few hair masks but coconut oil has to be my favourite.

 L'Artisan Parfumeur Mure et Musc Body Oil

I’ve been attempting to save this for special occasions but now that I’m done my beloved Darphin Body Oil it’s been an everyday thing for me. Mure et Musc quite simply a berries and musk scent. I love that this balances between being soft, maybe even a little animalistic in contrast with tart sweet berries. The oil it self is very nourishing and settles into my skin right away. I feel like if you’re a fan of Joe Malone’s Pomegranate Nior which is kind of a dark berry scent you will be a fan of Mure et Musc.

Well that concludes my post on my favourite oil beauty products. 
I would love to hear what are some of your faves so please leave a comment!
Also I would love to know what are your favourite oils for the hair I've had my eye on the Macademia one for a couple of months now!
Thanks for reading and I hope you have been enjoying the week!
