Cult facialist Rita Csizmadia says face oils are a must. “They have antiseptic benefits, they minimize pores, they firm your skin — they have enormous advantages.”

Birchbox Breakdown

It may seem a bit strange to put oil all over your face, but this intensely nourishing treatment is exactly what your skin needs—even if it’s oily (very counterintuitive, we know). Each single-use capsule contains a carefully balanced cocktail of vitamin and antioxidant-packed ingredients that work to hydrate, smooth, and brighten skin.

How it Works

Each ampoule has 60 percent Pomegranate Seed Oil, which is rich in Omega 5 fatty acid, an antioxidant-rich ingredient that spurs cell renewal, encourages collagen production, and soothes skin, and much more. There’s also anti-inflammatory Calendula Oil, hydrating Rosehip Oil, and detoxifying Grapefruit Oil.

Pomegranate Seed Oil is especially good for combination skin because it firms skin, minimizes pores, and calms any redness.

How to Use

Apply to freshly washed skin in the morning and evening. Twist off the small end of the capsule and squeeze the oil onto your fingertips. Gently tap the oil all over your face. Your skin may feel a bit slick at first but the formula absorbs quickly and dries matte. Follow with your regular moisturizer or, if your skin feels good, skip it. If you have oily skin, you can start with a small amount to test the waters and add more if you like.
