You’ve heard about face oils being an important component of the best skincare routines but aren’t sure where to start. If you have oily skin, you may be especially wary of incorporating professional face oil into your skincare regimen. But never fear; contrary to what may seem logical, face oils possess topical benefits for all skin types.
For dry skin, a well-formulated daily face serum will absorb into the top layer of skin and lock in moisture to clarify and boost the skin. Oily skin will benefit from the balancing effects of face oils that replenish moisture depleted by other, harsher oil-control products.

Why Obagi Professional-C is Our Pick for the #1 Face Oil
Most moisturizing serums hydrate and nourish the skin, but we think Obagi Professional-C is the best face oil for all skin types. Formulated with L-ascorbic acid, the most powerful form of Vitamin C, Professional-C illuminates and brightens your complexion by supporting new collagen production and reducing the visible signs of aging.
What are the Differences Between the Obagi-C Professional Serums?
Whether your skin is dry, combination or oily, Obagi has a hydrating face oil for your unique skincare needs. With three different Vitamin C serum concentrations—one for dry, sensitive skin; one for most skin types; and one for normal to oily skin—Obagi has the perfect professional face oil to keep your skin glowing and looking healthy.
Obagi Professional-C Serum 20%
If you have oily skin, chances are good you are drying it out with the best skincare products you use to minimize shine. Believe it or not, that stripped skin needs to be rehydrated.
The Obagi Professional-C Serum 20% is Obagi’s highest concentrated face oil and is best suited for normal to oily skin. Formulated to absorb into the skin immediately, this Vitamin C serum will leave your complexion feeling soft and looking radiant. Pure L-ascorbic acid helps repair visible signs of damage—like scarring and pigmentation—and, when used daily, preserves a supple, youthful appearance.
Obagi Professional-C Serum 15%
For non-sensitive, well-balanced skin types, Obagi Professional-C Serum 15% will assist in fortifying skin through the antioxidizing properties of pure L-absorbic acid (Vitamin C). Just 5-7 drops of Obagi’s best face oil applied to the face, neck, and chest each morning before sunscreen and makeup will go a long way in minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The result of using a daily face serum is skin with a beautiful, radiant glow.
Obagi Professional-C Serum 10%
Obagi’s gentlest face serum, the Obagi Professional-C Serum 10%, is designed for dry, irritated, or otherwise sensitive skin. L-ascorbic acid, or Vitamin C, optimizes the efficacy, permeability, and stability of the moisturizing serum, boosting the antioxidant properties of the formula. This daily face serum is perfect for even the most sensitive skin.
When and How to Use Face Oils
When applying professional face oil, be sure to start with a clean, dry slate. Wash and pat dry your skin before gently dabbing, patting, or rolling hydrating face oil on your face, neck, and chest. Allow the face serum to absorb fully into your skin before applying moisturizer, sunscreen, and makeup. The best face oil can also be used as the final step of a nighttime skincare routine to seal in the healing moisture of your hydrating night cream.
