I'm a huge fan of face oils and have been relying on them heavily to survive the cold weather. Clarins has a few soothing options that will work wonderfully if you're suffering from tightness and dry flaky patches.
The non-greasy Blue Orchid Face Treatment Oil contains blue orchid extract, hazelnut oil and patchouli to restore suppleness and vitality to severely dehydrated skin. You only need several drops to cover the entire face so the bottle will last for quite a long time. You can use it day and night, and it provides a prepped, smooth canvas for ideal makeup application.
I also adore the Santal Face Treatment Oil. Packed with sandal wood and lavender, the nourishing elixir calms and moisturizes irritated skin within minutes. The cardamom scent is so intoxicating that I can't wait to use it each evening! Definitely a winter skincare essential that you'll reach to again and again.
Available for $50 each (1 fl. oz.) at www.clarinsusa.com.
