Facial oils are awesome. Not only are they chock full of skincare goodness like fatty acids, antioxidants and omegas, they also help to improve your complexion’s overall health and plumpness, and leave it with a dewy glow. Many of them even have fun, extra benefits to treat issues like inflammation, fine lines, open pores and even breakouts.

However, not everyone is as sold on them as we are, and we totally understand. In humid climates like Singapore where oiliness is already an issue, some facial oils can feel greasy and leave you with a shiny T-zone.

But that doesn’t mean you should discount them all. After all, there are many facial oils that not only get quickly absorbed, but also give your complexion a soft radiance without leaving any stickiness or excess shine.

So you don’t have to go by trial and error, we’ve done the groundwork for you and curated a list of nourishing oils that leave your skin with Kpop-star worthy dewiness, minus any greasiness.
