A Closer Look: Serums & Face Oils

When I started #NoBuyJanuary I showed you a photo of my over-stuffed bathroom cabinet (well..one of them!)  See here. Today I'm going to show you my Serums and Face Oils collection.  These are my all time favourite type of skincare items along with cleansers and body products.



S5 Calm Serum 10ml - this came in a beauty box and is really nice to use.

Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum 10ml - I got this recently in a Latest in Beauty pack not really tried it much yet.

Willow Organic Beauty Super Firming Serum 20ml* - simply love this. You can feel it instantly firming on the skin.  See my review here.

Apivita Natural Serum Radiance 15ml* - lovely to use.  See my review here.

inner-soul organics Barefaced Beauty Natural Serum 30ml - I was lucky enough to win this and other goodies in Fi's (The Beauty Shortlist) giveaway just before Christmas. A full review to come.

MVO Face Oil sample* - a gorgeous face oil which is packed full of good things for the skin.  See my review here. I'll be sad when this one's finished.

001 Intensive Elixir 30ml* - my favourite face oil of last year.  See my review here.  It makes the skin look and feel amazing. It also has a beautiful scent.

Kris D'Amour Organic Argan, Apple Seed & Strawberry Seed Rejuvenating Face Treatment Oil 30ml* - a light treatment oil which smells lovely.  See my initial thoughts here.

Botanicals Rose & Camellia Face Oil sample - this came in a mini gift set a while ago. Nice to use and smells lightly of roses. See my post here.


inner-soul organics Mullein Flower Purifying Facial Oil 30ml - another product I received in the prize from Fi at the Beauty Shortlist. Again, a review will be up soon. Both are simply exquisite.

Charlotte Hilton Rose Otto Facial Serum 25ml* - a gorgeous rosehip, argan oil and pomegranate seed oil based facial serum scented with rose otto. Again review up soon.

ESPA Optimal Skin ProSerum 8ml* - a lovely light serum which I reviewed here. Also have back ups of this!

bodhi Desert Rose Rejuvenating Face Oil 30ml - one of my favourite face oils and one which will always be in my collection. I just love everything about it. See my review here. This is a brand new bottle :)

bodhi Neroli Luce Revitalising Face Oil 15ml - I also love this one for spring/summer months. This is great for combination/oily skin and smells fantastic.


Indie Lee Squalane Facial Oil 1oz* - I was sent this to review from a beautiful world and love it. See my review here. It seems that every Indie Lee product I try I love!

Antipodes Divine Face Oil 30ml - a simply gorgeous oil which I have only recently cracked open. I received it in my Selfridges box ages back.  Packed full of good things for the skin. Review up soon.

Lj's Very Indulgent Organic Face Oil 30ml - I received this from Jen in the Autumn Beauty Swap. A gorgeous face oil which contains rosehip, evening primrose and frankincense essential oil.  One of my favourites.

OCÉOPIN L'Huile de Graines de Pin Maritime 15ml* - a really unusual facial oil scented with Maritime Pine. See my review here.

Simply Bee Propolis Serum 30ml* - this lovely serum only has three ingredients. See my review here.

Do you use any of these? What's your favourite face oils and serums?
