I Woke Up Like This: Oiled Up



We know it’s somewhat ironic to cover our face in oil while simultaneously carrying oil blotters in our handbags, but hear us out.

It seems like just yesterday we were all obsessed with combating oil. Oily hair and skin = bad. Clearasil = good. Right? Wrong. Well, not wrong. Just perhaps not so black and white. These days, there are some killer new products on the market to help harness the moisturizing powers of oil without subjecting you to all of the icky stuff that goes along with it (like stinky smelly hair and acne, for starters). It has to do with the differences between mineral oils and plant based oils (head here if you want the scientific scoop on it all).

But if all you want is Jennifer Anniston’s complexion sans makeup, well then listen up. We have been using oil based products on our skin for awhile now and, we must admit, we are huge proponents of the stuff. If you have yet to oil up or even if you are already well greased, we have a few suggestions for your face that’ll leave your skin aglow.

1. Fresh Seaberry Moisturizing Face Oil, $18.50
2. Rodin Luxury Face Oil, $170
3. Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil, $16.00
4. Mila Moursi Moisturizing Oil / Aromapure Serum, $160

TOMBOY KC is a fashion and lifestyle blog written by actress Katie Cassidy and pint-sized real-life friend, Lynsey Eaton. Focused on personal style that is, well, personal, TKC is a place for smart and opinionated (read: sarcastic) women to join together and accumulate stilettos while collectively wearing their sneakers…everywhere. Self proclaimed nomads, when the girls aren't traveling for work or buying two of everything (one apiece, you see), you can find them sitting on Lynsey's couch eating pizza and drinking champagne in men's pajamas while waxing poetic about the present state of culottes. Feel free to come on over.
