'We have proven beautiful skin is healthy skin' 

Only the very best premium oils are used, sourced from reputable sources, organic, cold-pressed and Australian wherever possible. Small batch, secret blending methods... only two people know the blending process and our proven secret formulations.


Important please note: Our products are not medicinal. We would never recommend that you use any one plant oil individually for skincare. Either carrier or essential oil - especially essential oils. Oils are incredibly rich, nourishing, and restoring and if not blended correctly with other oils, can cause irritation, redness or even burning. In a perfectly balanced blend, using a dozen or more plant oils, even the most sensitive skin will benefit. The following information about ingredients should only be used as a guide to be confirmed. This information is what is popularly known about the ingredients and may not have been proven scientifically to be correct.

  • Veracity of data
    All information on the face oils shown on this page is from Australian and International manufacturers web sites and/or their reseller websites. Australian skin care manufacturer WomanOil8 were confident their Gorgeous Woman Skin Care products were the safest and best out there and implemented the face oil comparison to prove a point. The results confirmed this and speak for themselves. What's really surprising is the choice of ingredients some big global brands choose to use in their face oils.
  • The Results
    Gorgeous Woman Skin Care (WomanOil8 Australia), ManOil8, Happy Skin Care, Paula's Choice, Go-To and Sunday Riley have come out on top with 4+stars, with the top three made in Australia! The quality, quantities and ingredients in the face oil blends are what will either make or break a good face oil. The best way to find out if a face oil is actually going to be good for both your skin and your health is to read the list of ingredients on the label. Some of the face oils in the review have really good plant oils listed on the labels. However many of the face oils also contain ingredients that may not be beneficial for either your skin or your health. Plant oils also come in many grades of quality. ​ Remember beautiful glowing skin is really just healthy skin... When you stop using chemical based skin care products and commence using 100% natural oil formulas for your face, it can take around two weeks for your skin’s acid mantle to adjust and begin the cleansing, replenishment and recovery process. Expect a release of toxins from clogged pores, pollution, makeup and daily grime during this time as the plant oils cleanse and nourish pores. During this time remember beautiful glowing skin is really just healthy skin and that’s what you will have at the end of the cleansing and recovery process! ​ NOTE: Don't miss the ingredients for each product listed below the comparison chart. It is an eye-opener! Although every effort has been made to ensure the information on this web site is accurate at the time of publishing, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of the information. We encourage our viewers to do their own further research as needed. Legally ingredients should be listed top down in order of quantity. The listed ingredient 'Fragrance or Parfum' in Australia does not legally require a breakdown of ingredients and it is optional for a manufacturer to disclose this information. As they are usually extracts or chemical additives we believe all ingredients should be disclosed irrespective of the legal requirement and rate against non-disclosure.
