Winter is descending upon the northern hemisphere, and with colder weather comes winter skin – dry, thirsty, dull. It’s time to break out the face oils.

Fear not, these face oils won’t make your skin break out, and they won’t make you greasy like a latke. Unlike conventional moisturizers—which create a moisture-locking barrier made of waxes, water and oils–—pure oils sink right into your skin and you see and feel results immediately. Plus, you can give yourself a little face massage while you’re lathering it on which is a great circulation booster.

Many oils have the natural added benefits of super ingredients like omega fatty acids, antioxidants and polyphenols, and there’s a variety to choose every skin type.

Here are six great, cruelty free, vegan, synthetic and preservative-free face oils.
