A few weeks ago our Facial Oil was listed as an Editor’s Pick in the Beauty Shortlist Awards! We love what we do and truly believe in the strength and power of natural oils to complement a beauty regime. It turns out we’re not the only ones! This is what Beauty Shortlist Founder, Fiona Klonarides, had to say about our Brilliance Facial Oil:
“Oilixia have packed all of my favourite skin-calming, healing, radiance-boosting, cell-energising oils – Rosehip, Argan, Camellia and Squalene – along with some exciting, effective exotic botanicals like Kahai, from Amazonian Cacay Tree nuts, and South African Paracress plant extract into one amazing 18-oil formula. The result is a perfect example of a “one oil does it all” multi-tasker – it’s one of my favourite new finds for 2016.”
In celebration of this exciting news, we’ve pulled together the top 10 beauty products that every woman should own, including classic choices, all-natural products and a selection of our favourite other Beauty Shortlisters.
1. Inner Soul Organics In-Sleep Eye Revival Balm
Apply this miracle-making balm to upper and lower lids before sleep to soothe any dark circles or puffiness the following morning. With organic, natural ingredients and a soothing Lavender and Patchouli scent, this balm will also reduce signs of ageing.
2. Bondi Sands Everyday Gradual Tanning Milk for the Face
This tanning milk is light enough to use every day to give your skin a natural, healthy bronzed glow. The dual action formula includes Vitamin E and aloe vera to hydrate thirsty skin and the cocoa butter scent is just delicious.
3. Neal’s Yard Remedies Wild Rose Hand Cream
Neal’s Yard offer a wonderful range of ethical beauty products and their floral-scented hand cream is among the best. Includes antioxidant wild rosehip oil among a blend of essential oils designed to deeply nourish and protect your skin.

Thailand-born brand Janjira have created this suitably exotic body scrub which will gently buff away dead skin cells for a bright, even appearance. Featuring a revitalising scent, this scrub includes Sweet Almond Oil for a non-greasy, easily absorbed formula.
5. M&S Autograph Ultimate Shine Twist Up Lip Colour
This lip colour will be your new, glamorous best friend. It glides on smoothly to offer a seductive plum colour and high gloss shine, and its full-pigment formula moisturises lips for a smooth finish. Plus points: it’s cruelty-free and doesn’t need sharpening.
6. Elizabeth Arden 8-Hour Cream
There’s a reason that Miss Arden’s products never go out of fashion. This bestselling cream can be used as a (wait for it) hand cream, lip balm, after sun, cuticle oil, face mask and to shape misbehaving eyebrows. It will also repair cracked heels and soothe cuts or nicks caused by shaving, as well as calm red or spotty skin.
7. Tangle Teezer
A good hair day can make all the difference between feeling fabulous and feeling fed-up. The Tangle Teezer is a compact hairbrush that will get rid of matted, knotted hair without breaking or damaging your locks.
8. Clarins Tonic Firming Treatment Oil
The beauty mavens have done it again with this firming treatment that blends pure natural and essential oils to create a lavish product. The oil can be applied onto dry or damp skin after bathing and mixed into your body lotion for a smoothing treatment. Made from 100% pure plant extracts, it will eliminate toxins and strengthen the skin’s natural elasticity for a firm appearance.
9. Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge for Lips and Cheeks in Cabo Coral
This luxurious cream blusher has a long-lasting, heat-resistant formula and pretty coral shade to add a pretty flourish from noon until night. Blend onto cheeks for a warm flush of colour or smoothed into lips for a subtle, stained finish.
10. Kiehl’s Crème de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Body Polish
Polish your body beautiful with this creamy, scented cleanser that uses pure honey, jojoba oil, shea butter, soy milk protein and exfoliating granules to wrap skin up in a velvety cocoon and leave it silky soft and supple.
