YOUR ULTIMATE GUIDE TO FACIAL OILS
WHAT ARE FACIAL OILS?
Facial oils are highly concentrated derivatives of plant oils, known for their antioxidant and hydrating properties. At Kiehl’s our facial oils are formulated with distilled botanicals and herbal concentrates such as Green Oregano Oil, Evening Primrose Oil, Sunflower Oil, and Squalane.
