Physician's Formula Argan oil and Suave Moroccan oil

I figured since I was already on the oil band wagon I might as well continue with a face and body oil.

The Physician's Formula Argan oil is the first facial oil I've used. If you've read my blog for even a short period of time you know that my face is super duper oily. Therefore the thought of ever putting an oil on already oily skin never made sense to me. Sure, I've heard of the benefits of using a facial oil; clear, healthy, glowy, hydrated looking skin, but for me I wasn't sure if the benefits would outweigh the greasy sweaty look I was sure to get from adding oil on oil. Add in the fact that most face oils are on the pricey side and I really wasn't sold. However, Physician's Formula Argan oil set me back only 11-12 dollars, which for a face oil is quite a steal. I was also intrigued by the fact that PF Argan oil promised to diminish fine lines and can improve skin's brightness, tone, texture and elasticity. This was even better than "glowy" skin! I was still hesitant but at that price tag I figured I'd give it a go. To my surprise I absolutely love it! My skin is a lot smoother and more supple then it has ever been. Admittedly it does make me a little oily, especially around the t-zone, so I only apply it once a day right before bed. You only need 2 to 3 drops and your good to go. The product label also suggests using oil for nails and hair, but I love the way it makes my face look/feel so much I don't want to waste a drop of it anywhere else!

In all honesty, when I picked up the Suave Moroccan Infusion oil I thought it was a hair oil. It comes in a small bottle with a spritz top typical of most hair oils. I didn't really do much more than glance at it before sticking it in my basket because I am a hair oil junky and I'm always on the lookout for new ones to try. Once I got home and actually read the label I found it was actually a dry body oil. Now I've never tried a commercial body oil before, but I do use and swear by virgin coconut oil so I was interested to see how they would compare. I do like the spritzer top, it's super convenient and easy to use with little mess. However, the oil itself didn't really leave my skin as moisturized as I hoped. While it went on nicely, as it absorbed into my skin I just felt like it left me dry, which was pretty disappointing. I probably wouldn't buy this body oil again.

Have you guys ever used a face/body oil? Which is your favorite?
