Over the past few years, oils in general have become increasingly popular. Whether it is argan oil (sometimes known as Moroccan oil) or coconut oil, it’s been claimed that oils can do almost everything for skin, from reducing wrinkles to preventing acne. A lot of the claims about oils aren’t true, but some are.

Oils are loaded with fatty acids, triglycerides and plenty of other skin-boosting compounds, and some of them offer anti-inflammatory properties too. One of the best, and most versatile, oils for skin is jojoba oil – pronounced “ho-ho-bah”.

Recently, I picked up the Leven Rose Jojoba Oil from Amazon. You get a generous 118ml of oil. It claims to naturally moisturize and soften skin – and provide it with a “radiant, energetic look”.

Oils are one of those items that almost anyone can benefit from having in their skincare routine. Whether it’s argan oil or almond oil, oils provide you with that extra surge of hydration that often, a moisturizer alone simply can’t offer.

Oils work best for normal, dry and combination skin types, but that’s not to say you can’t use them at all if your skin is on the oilier side. If you’re looking to add a facial oil to your skincare routine, a great option is the Tarte Maracuja Oil. This beautifully packaged products hydrates and nourishes skin, leaving it feeling much smoother.

So, what else does this well-formulated oil have to offer?

5 of the Best Skincare Products from Boscia

Boscia has so many great products in its line that it’s fast-becoming one of my favorite skincare brands. It’s a brand that originated in Japan almost four decades ago, but since 2002, it’s become incredibly popular in the USA. Boscia, pronounced Bo-Sha, combines science and botanical ingredients to create products that are truly effective.

From serums to moisturizers, Boscia offers some excellent products that you should definitely consider adding to your skincare routine. Here are five of the best the brand has to offer.

1. Boscia Restorative Night Moisture Cream

One of my favorite products from Boscia, and one of my favorites in general, is the Restorative Night Moisture Cream. This moisturizer has a luxuriously creamy texture, meaning it simply glides over the skin. It’s perfect for dry and very dry skin types, as it adds that extra boost of moisture to the skin, which is often lacking in other night creams.

The cream contains a really good mix of emollients that soften the skin and occlusive, which really lock that moisture into the epidermis. It also offers a good selection of antioxidants, anti-irritants and plant extracts.  It’s fragrance free too, so if your skin is sensitive it’s a great option.

Review Boscia Oil-Free Daily Hydration with SPF 15

Boscia MoisturizerBoscia is one of those skincare brands that, arguably, might not be as well known as brands like Nivea or Garnier, but offers some truly great products.

One of the best products from the brand, which I talked about in my post on moisturizers for oily skin, is the Oil-Free Daily Hydration with SPF 15. This moisturizer is incredibly well-formulated, and it’s so lightweight that it’s suitable even for very oily skin.

Application

This moisturizer has a very thin consistency. Applying it is very easy. It absorbs very quickly into your skin, leaving behind a matte finish. This makes it excellent for oily skin.

Does it do what it Claims to Do?

According to the brand, this moisturizer, controls shine, offers moisturization, and fights signs of aging. This moisturizer certainly delivers. It offers a matte finish and it’s lightweight, which keeps oiliness at bay.

It’s also loaded with antioxidants and anti-irritants too, like vitamin E and jojoba leaf extract. These ingredients make this moisturizer excellent at protecting your skin from environmental factors, like the sun and pollution.

Review Paula’s Choice Skincare Skin Recovery Daily Moisturizing Lotion with SPF 30

Paula's Choice Dry Skin MoisturizerI’ve reviewed a lot of products from Paula’s Choice Skincare on this site. It’s simply because the brand delivers so many great products. Another excellent moisturizer from the brand is the Paula’s Choice Skincare Skin Recovery Daily Moisturizing Lotion with SPF 30.

Loaded with skin-boosting antioxidants and effective moisturizing ingredients, this product has a great deal to offer.

Application

This silky lotion glides over your skin. While it is designed for people with drier skin types, this lotion is not too thick or heavy. So, it feels nice and light on your skin. It comes in simple tube packaging, so applying the product is very easy.

Does it do What it Claims to Do?

This lotion claims to replenish dry, sensitive skin, protect against sun damage, promote a health barrier function and provide a formulation that maintains healthy, radiant, youthful skin. That’s quite a lot for one product to offer. But, it does deliver.
