If you haven’t used Skin Boss face oils before, you might be wondering,

“Should I use face oil before or after moisturiser?”

The short answer is before.

The long answer is, well, long. Here goes.

First up, it’s probably helpful to know that oils have a small molecular structure that easily penetrates the skin.

That’s a fancy science-ish way of saying oils are really good at sinking into your skin, rather than sitting on the surface.

Apply your face oil first – before your moisturiser – and it will absorb quickly and deeply, leaving a smooth and non greasy finish.

Detailed instructions and product information can be found on both the GET UP AND GLOW (day oil) and SLEEP ON IT (night oil) product pages – find them here – but here is the best way to apply your new favourite face oil:

1. Apply 3-4 drops into the palm of your hand. Rub hands together to warm oil slightly.
2. Gently apply the oil onto your freshly cleansed face and neck BEFORE any other product is used.
3. Continue on with your usual skincare and makeup routine and you’re good to glow/sleep on it!

If you haven't used facial oils before, you might be wondering, "Should I use face oil before or after moisturiser?" Skin Boss Australia founder, Kirsten Smith, gives you the answer.

Do I need to use a moisturiser?

That is totally up to you and what you think your skin needs.

My skin feels hydrated and nourished when I apply roughly 1/2 a dropper of Skin Boss to my face and neck. So I don’t use a moisturiser anymore – just Skin Boss face oils and a quick swipe of eye cream every morning and night.

Oh and sunscreen during the day, of course!

In summary –

Skin Boss before moisturiser. Too easy!

Do you use a moisturiser with your face oil?
