Meet the Hero Facial Oil

Hydrating, plumping, glow-boosting and soothing – forget a jack-of-all-trades, our By Sarah London Hero Facial Oil is a true master of just about everything. The entire By Sarah London journey began with this restorative face oil, that I developed to repair Lauren's fragile skin as she recovered from life-threatening leukaemia treatment. Since then, it's garnered cult status amongst skincare aficionados and loyal customers alike, and scooped multiple prestigious awards.

Formerly known as By Sarah London Organic Facial Oil, the much-loved blend has now been given a glossy makeover with a punchy new name and beautiful packaging upgrade.

Here's your ultimate guide to the product...

Why did we name it the 'Hero?'

The original. The inspiration. The Hero. Sitting at the heart of the By Sarah London collection, this is the product we're most renowned for and the blend our customers come back to time and time again. It suits every skin type – from dry to oily or rosacea-prone – and tackles a whole multitude of different skin concerns using a medley of super hard-working plant-based ingredients. Now, if that's not a hero – we don't know what is!

What are the ingredients in By Sarah London Hero Facial Oil?

As with all our By Sarah London products, you'll find the full ingredient list on the front label. This beauty comprises six extraordinary plant oils, each selected for their natural skin-boosting abilities.

Organic Sweet Almond Oil and Organic Apricot Oil are particularly rich in vitamins to help strengthen the skin's barrier function and deliver lasting nourishment. Organic Pumpkin Seed Oil is another special addition that boasts natural AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids) to support cell turnover and radiance. Organic Argan Oil helps balance sebum production, making the blend a smart choice for oily complexions, too. Meanwhile, Organic Evening Primrose Oil and Vitamin E help retain moisture and neutralise the effect of free radical damage.

Together? They form an incredible powerhouse that leaves skin strong, calm and glowing.

How do I use By Sarah London Hero Facial Oil?

Skin-boosting prowess aside, there's another reason its devotees adore our Hero Facial Oil... the blend is a real multi-tasker that's unbelievably simple to use.

It acts as your moisturiser, night cream, serum and eye cream in one. Just a few drops are required – both morning and night – after cleansing and before makeup. It absorbs quickly but can also be combined with facial massage for some extra firming and anxiety-busting action.

Experiencing blemish-prone skin? Try using your Hero Facial Oil in the morning and our spot-fighting Ally Blemish Recovery Oil at night.

Is By Sarah London Hero Facial Oil free from essential oils and fragrance?

YES! As with all our By Sarah London products, you won't find any essential oils, fragrance, mineral oil or unnecessary filler ingredients in our face oil. It's simply packed with cruelty-free, vegan and organic plant-powered ingredients that really work.

By Sarah London Hero Facial Oil reviews

Our face oil is loved by so many different skin types but particularly those suffering from sensitive skin or a delicate post-cancer complexion:

"I’m so pleased with this facial oil! Not only has it improved the look & texture of my skin, it has really improved my complexion to the extent that I’m not wearing any makeup, unless I’m going on a night out. I’m allergic to many face creams, so it feels good to use this oil which is made from natural oils and causes no irritation. Make up also goes on very smoothly on top of the oil. I’m hooked!" Suzanne - Feefo review

"I've been using the facial oil for over a year now and love it. I started to get oily skin and acne after stopping the pill last year, and like many others was hesitant to use a facial oil thinking it might add fuel to the fire, but the opposite is true - my skin feels hydrated and soft and not oily at all, and the facial oil helped to bring my skin back into balance. My skin looks SO much better now, and except for the odd pimple my skin is clear now and not oily anymore. Love that the products are all natural and organic. I also gave a bottle to my parents - my dad had this random dry patch on his scalp and wanted to go to the dermatologist for some steroid cream, but after using the oil for a few days the spot disappeared!" Marina - Feefo review

"This face oil is just so lovely. I've used face oils for a while from many brands, at much higher prices too! And I think this is the best I've tried. Comforting, soothing, calming, my skin seems to love it and I'm not even using much moisturizer now, which is saying something for me! My skin is less reactive and heals quicker from spots. Would highly recommend!" Sarah - Feefo review
