We've waxed lyrical about the liquid gold taking over the skincare industry before, but the latest beauty oils could be the most precious yet
If you're yet to jump on the facial oil bandwagon, let us help you up - it's looking extra glowy up there. Widely hailed as essential elixirs for good - wait, make that glorious - skin, the best beauty oils penetrate deep into the skin to deliver the good stuff right where you need it. Did we mention they also offer lightweight, non-greasy (promise!) hydration that absorbs almost instantly? These are the three newbies we're adding to beauty cabinet, pronto.

This week, SK-II step into the fray with an oil version of their cult-status Facial Treatment Essence. Mixing Pitera with olive, jojoba, avocado and rice bran oil, plus Japanese Riceterol Ester, it's designed to be used after your Essence or before (or mixed with) your moisturiser for a hydration boost that fights the effects of environmental stressors.
2. La Mer The Renewal Oil, $320/30ml, cremedelamer.com.au
Rich in La Mer's magic ingredient, Miracle Broth, this luxe oil works to boost skin's collagen production and encourage good glow. Apply three to five drops over face, neck, body... even your hair and nails.
