Organic coconut oil. It soaks in immediately. You can use a drop the size of a pea for your whole face. It works beautifully, and is natural. Makes your skin super vibrant and hydrated and also works great under liquid foundation.

I use the Nutiva brand and I believe it is about 25.oo per huge container. I also eat it and cook with it. Very healthy and works better than any 100.00 per ounce potion.

I quit using lotions years ago when I suddenly realized that I was smearing toxic made-made chemicals all over myself to soak into my largest organ - my skin.

I loved Skinceuticals C E Ferulic -- however I had the weird reaction of it smelling metallic on me. Every so often someone has that reaction. But it's rare.

Right now I'm using an oil called Intelligent Nutrients Anti Aging Serum. While I like it -- it is sort of grippy and I can't rub my face hard. I've taken to putting a pump in my hand, and mixing it with my moisturizer (CeraVe) and THEN putting on my face. I like the smell, and I love the extra moisture. The reason I picked it is because the reviews were good for rosacea sufferers. My face does feel a little cooler.

i use boots serum. I am using the botanical one now, but I have liked the protect and renew. I am not sure if the botanical one is as good. I am about 75% through my bottle and I have one more to use. It isn't quite as effective on my problem area "dark spots" but I have also had 4x as many breakouts lately too. (Pesky hormones!)

I think "serums" are overrated. There are great natural oils that do the job. Lately I have used virgin coconut, sweet almond, argan and grapeseed. The coconut is the heaviest, great for dry skin, cold weather or to use as a light natural sunscreen. Sweet almond is a wonderful "all-purpose" oil, I wash my face with it remove eyemakeup and use as an all-over moisturizer. It is light and well-absorbed with no odor. Argan oil is rich, and a couple drops will moisturize your whole face and neck. While I do like this oil, it is expensive, and really doesn't do anything more than the sweet almond. Lastly, I just purchased grapeseed. This one is extremely light and well-absorbed, good for under makeup or if you have oily skin.

I have recently ordered some emu oil - heard great things about it, but haven't tried it yet.

After every bath, I use almond oil on my whole body, including my face. I also use a very small amount (what's left on my hands when I'm done slathering myself up) and run my hands through my hair (I have dry hair so this helps it shine).

When I'm getting dressed, I use Clarins serum under my Super BB cream (which I use as a moisturizer/light foundation). I also use an eye cream by ItWorks - it's all natural and you can also use it on your lips.
