Drugstore Dash: The Best Face Oil Under $25

The Best Face Oil under $25 - Politics of Pretty

Wearing face oil is like the equivalent of taking your vitamins. If you aren’t consistent, you won’t see the results over time. As you age, your skin becomes dry and dull, thus making it harder for that ‘lit from within glow.’ You see, when the skin’s natural oils decrease, the moisture barrier breaks down, and the skin dries out. Most creams contain a little oil, but not enough to make a difference in water loss. Face oils pass through the lipid layer of the skin faster, preventing water loss and plumping skin. Now, I love face oils, but I’ve never been a fan of its price point. I’ve never taken the plunge with luxe face oils I’ve added to my Sephora shopping cart, but I’m glad my patience to wait for a more wallet friendly version paid off. Enter the best face oil that you can find at your local drugstore: L’Oreal Age Perfect Renewal Facial Oil. Composed of a unique blend of eight essential oils (think English Lavender, Rosemary Leaf, Roman Chamomile, Rose Flower, and more), this oil restores dull complexions without the greasy residue. Post cleanse, I like to apply just a few drops in a light pressing and upward motion. I finish with my day/night cream and I wake up to smooth, hydrated skin. The L’Oreal Face Oil has a lightweight consistency but it’s so concentrated, it will carry you through the cold weather season and beyond.
