{on the dressing table : a myriad of beauty oils}

. . . all winter long, the dressing table has been strewn with every kind of beauty oils imaginable — elixirs for perfect skin, hair serums and body potions — and since they work so beautifully and have become a fixture in the beauty regiment, shall continue through the summer — and always, adding a few luxurious body shimmers to the mix for bare shoulders and legs and collarbones; despite the age-old belief that oils cause oily skin or breakouts, the opposite is actually true — stripping away oils from the face can cause the skin to produce more oil, whereas adding oils — argan, coconut, etc., does not; in fact, so in love with beauty oils, have also recently picked up an enormous container of raw organic virgin coconut oil from a health food shop to try as a body moisturizer, eye makeup remover, and even to tame the ends of tousled hair, and sarah has wondered about the possibility of grape seed oil for the face [although not quite certain about that one!] — would love to know — do you use beauty oils, and if so, which ones are your current favourites?
