With so many face oils to choose from on the market, finding the right one for your skin can be a bit like finding a needle in a haystack. My search is over, however, after discovering the Sunday Riley C.E.O. Glow face oil (once $40, now $28) that transformed my skin in just under two months. And thanks to Amazon Prime Day 2023, which runs through tonight, July 12, for Prime members (sign up here), you can snag it for at steal.

I love products that are worth their high price tag, and this is definitely at the top of my list. Coming in at a cool $80 per 1.18-ounce bottle, it’s on the more expensive side, but I think it’s worth every penny (especially on sale). Why? Because it’s effective and lasts a super long time. I have well over half a bottle left to use, but already, my complexion is brighter, healthier and the contrast in my dark spots has been diminished like with no product I’ve ever used before.

What’s So Great About This Face Oil?

This product brightens courtesy of the advanced vitamin C formula and leaves your skin looking more youthful and hydrated in no time. It’s also formulated with golden turmeric and cranberry seed oil. Though study results on curcuminoids (bioactive compounds found in turmeric) are mixed at best, Sunday Riley claims it works together with the cranberry seed oil to battle signs of anti-aging, balance skin tone and hydrate. It absorbs quickly into the skin, too, so you aren’t left with an oily residue like a lot of face oils.

How Should I Use It?

I recommend using this product in the morning on a freshly clean face and massaging it into your skin with a refrigerated facial roller to help depuff your complexion. You’ll be left with a glowing base to start your makeup and your skin will be illuminated and hydrated for the day. If you like a little extra hydration, like I do, apply a small amount of moisturizer after the oil has absorbed. You can also use this at night, as well as before you head to bed if you prefer to apply it twice a day. Don’t forget your neck, too!

How Do I Know If This Is Right for My Skin?

As with most things, you know yourself best. This oil is great for all skin types (yes, even oily skin), but if you are prone to reactions to new products, ask a dermatologist before trying it out. My skin has reacted positively to this product because I desperately needed the hydration and antioxidants (face oils don’t create more oil build-up in the face, believe it or not!). My dark spots have significantly decreased, my face looks brighter and healthier and I could not be more excited about it.
