My Must Have Product - Eve Taylor's Facial Oils

Do you use a facial oil?

Now before some of you shy away, I promise you THEY ARE NOT OILY- facial oils are a specific treatment containing a specific blend of essential oils* and a tiny bit of cold pressed carrier oil to allow you to slide it over your face as you can't put an essential oils directly onto your skin.

*Essential oils are not actually an oil; they are a concentrated liquid/essence which comes from plants, flowers, grasses, fruits, leaves, roots, seeds and barks. 

Eve Taylor Pre Blended Facial Oils are truly amazing! They are my MUST HAVE product - I would never go without my facial oil and here is the reason why:

These magnificent facial oils give the skin an intensive boost whilst increasing the productivity of your moisturiser by up to 30%! Caught your attention? Then read on...

All of the Eve Taylor facial oils include Vitamin A (maintains and repairs the skin), Vitamin D (cell growth and repair) and Vitamin E (antioxidant) rich Soya**. It also contains nourishing and protective Hazelnut oil**, softening Avocado and Vitamin E rich Wheatgerm which is also a natural preservative - very clever! And a big plus for me and my clients, the Eve Taylor range does not contain Lanolin, Mineral Oil, Artificial fragrance, or SD alcohol.

Soya is my best friend as it increases the thickness and elasticity of the skin. Imagine if you will a piece of dried pasta, then imagine what it looks like when it's cooked - nice and plump - well Soya has the same effect on your skin - WOW!

Essential oils are loaded with oxygen and detoxinate, hydrate and oxygenate the skin. Oxygen kills bacteria regulating sebum (oil) production and in turn switching off the immune system response and healing the skin. Pretty clever stuff and all from nature!

So which one do I use?

No 1 Facial Oil for Sensitive Skin - Sooth and Hydrate
This gorgeous smelling oil is specifically designed for a sensitive or itchy or touch sensitive skin. Includes balancing Lavender, cleansing Geranium, cooling, antiseptic and antibacterial Eucalyptus, oxygenating Cypress and hydrating Sandalwood. Divine!

This oil is fantastic for allergy sufferers, smokers, long haul travellers, asthmatics and those who work in poor air quality (i.e. hospitals big offices) as it not only soothes but hydrates the skin. Also it's what we call a safety blend so it's safe for pregnant women, those who are trying to get pregnant or those on medication.

Even though I have combination skin, I changed over to this oil after being diagnosed with Asthma last year as it helps ease my asthmatic symptoms as it is vaso-dilating; so it helps to keep my airways open - again another WOW! It still balances my oily and dry areas and helps prevent breakouts.

Meet the Rest of the Eve Taylor Facial Oil Family:

No 2 for Delicate, Thin Skin - Calm and Firm
This very clever treatment blend is specifically designed for couperose conditions (redness) and is super effective on delicate thin skin. Includes balancing Lavender, antiseptic Eucalyptus, stimulating Basil, Niaouli to increase the circulation and hydrating Sandalwood.

It's perfectly suited to skins with broken capillaries, visible red veins, Acne Rosacea, skins that are very red and with poor circulation as it strengthens the capillary walls. It also acts as a buffer against environmental stresses including free radicals, pollution, humidity, central heating and air conditioning. Great for thread veins on puffy knees too! One more thing it's great to reduce redness after hair removal - I use it in my facial waxing treatments.

No 3 Problem Skin - Clear and Tone
This blend is designed specifically for skins that produce excess sebum (oil) and suffer from breakouts and eruptions with a non-stimulating effect on skin. Includes anti-seborrehoeic Ylang-Ylang (in other words prevents excess oil), antiseptic Cedarwood, cleansing Lemongrass, balancing Lavender and softening Sandalwood.

Perfect for inflammation due to unusually high oil levels, open pores, excess oil or blackheads and spots and acne sufferers. It's great on the back too! It hydrates preventing the skin from being stripped which means even oily but sensitive skins can use this blend.

No 4 Normal Skin - Maintain and Balance 
This blend is designed specifically for normal skins to keep them stable and free from blemishes or breakouts. It has an antioxidant action to increase the skin’s resistance to environmental change and/or free radicals. Includes Basil to increase the skins resistance, cell stimulating Rosewood, balancing Lavender and antiseptic Geranium.

No 4 oil is also great for temporary instability of the skin i.e. minor irritations, texture change and loss of elasticity or age spots.

No 5 Mature Skin - Revive and Firm 
This amazing oil is perfect for dry, dehydrated or mature skins unable to absorb nourishing creams or heavier products. It's a great anti ageing oil for prematurely ageing and naturally ageing skin.

Skin ageing is caused by environmental damage including the sun, poor lifestyle and diet, natural ageing or where the underlying muscle has been subject to stress or tension. The skin becomes thinner, starts to sag and the skin is less supple and firm.

No 5 oil is also great for any scarring including acne and stretch marks - the oil
should be used around the scar on healthy tissue ONLY, not actually on the scar. It helps to minimise scarring, help it to heal and keep the area subtle.

Please remember ONLY No 1 oil can be used on those who are pregnant, trying to get pregnant or on medication. 

It's So Easy To Use These Gorgeous Oils
  • Your simply use one small pump twice a day over your face, neck and décolleté. Warm gently in your hand first.
  • You apply this after cleansing and under your toner (spritz toner over to lock in the facial oil - remember oil and water don't mix)
  • Then apply your moisturiser - easy peasy!

All Eve Taylor Facial Oils can be used anywhere on the body to treat conditions. They are £11.49 for 30ml bringing fantastic results without breaking the bank.

  1. I have never used facial oils but I have heard so much about it. Upon reading your blog, I am interested in trying out the No 1 facial oil for sensitive skin. I hope that my skin will love it.

    1. That's great to hear Emily, I'm sure you won't regret it. Would love to hear back from you on what you think.

  2. Hi,

    Thank you for your (old) blog on the Eve Taylor facial oils. I can't decide which oil to choose, and I wonder if you could help: my facial skin is very oily all over but more in the T-Zone, with slightly enlarged pores there. The underlying problem may be dryness though, as the skin is tight without a moisturizer. As I am a longhaul flight attendant, I am of course exposed to quite a toxic and changing environment and the result is the excess of sebum (also hormonal). However my skin is also sensitive and slightly reddish especially on my cheeks, where the vessels are starting to become visible, but also on my chin and above the eyebrows. I don't think it is couperose or rosacea yet, though my mother has rosacea. I don't have any outbreaks though. By the way, I'm 45, but with a younger looking skin, without any wrinkles (my mom at 76 is only slowly starting to get wrinkles).

    Does this info help? My most urgent problem right now is the oiliness. Will oil number 3 be the right one as it is sebum controlling, but will it be calming enough for my reddish skin? I would really appreciate your advice. Thank you very much.

    Best wishes,


    1. Hi Anya

      I would recommend you use No 2 blend to deal with your delicate skin to strengthen the capillary walls and calm down the redness and also to use Eve Taylor's Hyaluronic Acid which is great for flight attendants to intensively hydrate the skin.
      Here is my article on this fab product

      After a while you may find the oiliness reduces as your skin is being treated effectively and isn't outputting sebum in a desperate attempt to right itself. Eve Taylor products oxygenate the skin which prevents bacteria growth and balances the PH levels of the skin.

      I would also recommend you use Eve Taylor's Ultra Soothing Cleanser and Soothing toner and Ultra Soothing Moisturising Cream to calm the skin and intensively hydrate it. You can use the toner throughout flights to further hydrate your skin. And remember to drink lots of water.

      My skin is combination and sensitive if I use balancing products it gets oilier as it is fighting back against the sensitivity to the product, if I use soothing products my skin is balanced and calm as it isn't fighting.

      You may find my article on changes in skincare helpful too

      Hope this helps, would love to hear how you get on.

      Best wishes

  4. Hey.
    This review of yours sounds really promising. I would love to order nr 2 as is have some veins on my cheeks that are showing more and more (after pregnancy/ 23y). But i live in norway and it looks like i canẗ order any. Do you have another brand which has the same affect?

    My skin looks like this:

    Some veins at my cheeks.
    And i have clogged white pores under my eyes (i dont think its milia). Do you have any tips how i can get rid of them?

    Would be soo awesome if you could help!
    Thank you!

    1. Hi Lisa you could contact Eve Taylor direct they should able to ship out to you in Norway.

      I would get your doctor to look at that white spots under your eyes to diagnose what they are before you treat them.

      Hope this helps and thank very much for reading the blog. Best wishes and have a wonderful Christmas and a very Happy New Year x

  6. Hi Sara,
    Thank you for your review.
    I'm just wondering my face are currently having allergic due to mistaken on product which not suitable for me. My skin are getting redness, itchy and minimum amount of milia.My friend recommend me to use face oil no.1, is it the best choice for my condition right now?

    1. Hi Jasmin so sorry it's taken a while to get back to you we have had a death in the family.

      The best product for you at the moment would be Eve Taylors Ultra Soothing Cleanser to treat and calm the irritation. Here is a link to an article I wrote on it to see its many uses. They also do a Toner and Moisturising cream in the Ultra Soothing range which have been godsends to my very sensitive skin.

      The no 1 facial oil would be fantastic too unless you have broken veins then you would need no 2 for delicate skin. The Ultra Soothing Cleanser is what will make the biggest difference at the moment.

      Keep in touch and let me up know how you get on and what you go for.

      Sara x
