FACIAL OIL No. 8 :: An ultra-light, smoothing, rejuvenating, calming, nutrient-dense, face oil for those with; mature, stressed, discoloured, blemished, dry or oily, skin.

SKU: N/A Categories: ,



FACIAL OIL No. 8 by Wild As The Wind is an ultra light facial oil with transformative qualities. Immensely antioxidant, it is perfect for acne prone and mature skin. It is particularly suited to the warmer months, but it can be used as a night serum in winter.

Whilst deeply moisturising, it does not offer the same protection in wintertime as Facial Oil No. 2. However, it is possible to add an additional oil to FACIAL OIL No. 8 to enhance its protective qualities during cold snaps. See the list of recommended oils to decide which one is best for you.

In addition, Organic Marula Oil can be added during the summer months to provide sun and environmental protection.

According to WebMD, Organic Marula Oil prevents damage from sun and environment:

The sun’s ultraviolet rays along with high amounts of pollution in the environment cause skin damage, according to dermatologist Hadley King, MD. By using an oil such as marula oil, you can better combat these elements.

FACIAL OIL No. 8 Suitability

This beautiful blue facial oil blend is suitable for all skin types, but is contraindicated for pregnant and breastfeeding women.

FACIAL OIL No. 8 is considered to be anti-wrinkle and anti-inflammatory, making it ideal for reducing signs of ageing.

Like all Wild As The Wind face oils, FACIAL OIL No. 8 is a healing powerhouse that rejuvenates, balances, and restores.

It contains potent essential oils which are thought to have a hormone balancing effect. Plus, because it contains essential oils like Organic Citronella Essential Oil and Organic Clary Sage Essential Oil, it can reduce excessive perspiration.

Customer Feedback For FACIAL OIL No. 8

After a very dry, flaky darker patch of skin (on my face) was diagnosed, by a doctor, as sun damage and not being that impressed with the emollient prescribed, I thought I’d give Rachel’s Facial Oils a try. I’m so pleased I did!

I’ve been using #8 for several weeks and can barely see the patch now. I noticed an improvement within a few days which just got better and better.

I highly recommend #8. The aroma and feel is wonderful too!

Rachel, Wells, Somerset

My daughter has been using FACIAL OIL No. 8 exclusively and we are both incredibly happy with the results. Her hormone ridden facial skin is so much better…. We are very happy on so many levels and use nothing else but Wild As The Wind.

Helen, North London, UK

★★★★★ 5 Star Etsy Review :: As always, absolutely amazing oil. Buy it, you, and your skin, won’t regret it. xx

Rachel, Bristol

I LOVE the facial oil number 2, it’s amazing, the number 8 is gorgeous too, especially under makeup.

Caroline, Knutsford :: Makeup Artist

★★★★★ 5 Star Etsy Review :: I love oil number 2 so thought I would mix and match with oil number 8. Love this oil. Lighter than number 2 but still as good. I had shingles recently and the oils in combination helped my skin to heal really quickly. I have been using the oils from Wild as the Wind for over 2 years now. I would not use anything else on my skin. Face creams just leave my skin feeling dry.

Claire, Dumfries

★★★★★ 5 Star Etsy Review :: Beautiful, light facial oil that smells divine.

Kayt, Bristol

Love Number 2. Number 8 is also fabulous.

Nicole, Surrey

FACIAL OIL No. 2 is very calming, nourishing and my skin has become so much clearer, smoother and looks so much healthier.  Rachel, whose knowledge is immense, and is incredibly helpful, has also introduced me to Facial Oil No 8 which is slightly lighter for the summer months and is equally as good (and smells just as divine as Facial Oil No 2).

Claire, Castle Carey

I am really liking the Facial Oil no 8! It’s lighter than no 2 but still makes my skin feel nourished and soft. The smell is lovely as well!

Darlene, Surrey

★★★★★ 5 Star Google Review :: I purchased the facial n.8 which I think smells amazing and really seems to improve the skin immediately and I am looking forward to show the results to my friends.

Lucilla, Bristol, UK

Hello!! I bought the no. 8 facial oil form you… and it is so wonderful. The smell, the feel and the overall essence is just magical and has utterly lifted my sense of self-love.

My body, mind and soul are delighted. Thank you so much. Would highly recommend this product.

It’s so nice to have beautiful natural products made with love and understanding. Thank you thank you thank you!! xx

Francesca, Glastonbury

★★★★★ 5 Star Etsy Review :: This oil is great, I’ve noticed a difference with my skin, it feels and looks radiant. This is the second bottle, opting for the bigger measure this time because both my husband and myself use it.

Jules, Surrey

I am so glad with the oil nr 8, and the Rose/Otto toner/ cleanser. My skin looks healthy and with a natural glow.  I use 4 drops in the morning and 4 drops before sleep.

Donalda, Netherlands

I am now on my third bottle of No. 8 Facial Oil and can tell you it is fantastic. I put one drop onto each cheek and one on my forehead, then massage in while breathing in the wonderful aroma. It’s a light oil so sinks in really well. I do this morning and night and my skin is amazing, soft, clear and with minimal fine lines. There is a marked difference between my skin before and after using this facial oil and although I can’t say why, it makes me feel good. I can’t recommend it enough.

Diane, Cheddar

I bought facial oil no8 just over 2 weeks ago and am very happy with it.
My skin feels and looks more nourished, healthy and happy!
I am so pleased to have bumped into you at Wells market and will be back for more.

Karen, Wells, Somerset

I have been using Facial Oil No 2 for a few months and I love it, however, when we had a warm snap a month or so ago I found it too heavy for my skin during the day… possibly a left over anxiety of being an oily skinned person when I was young? Spoke with Rachel about reducing amount or whether there was another alternative. The answer Facial Oil No 8, much lighter, disappeared completely and left my skin feeling fantastic. Result! Big thanks to Rachel for listening and being so helpful.

Sarah, Midsomer Norton

I have to say how good your number 2 & 8 [FACIAL OILs are]. I have used none of the sun screen only your oils. They are wonderful and natural, thank you for introducing them to me.  x

FACIAL OIL No. 8 Ingredients


NOT TO BE USED BY: Pregnant or breastfeeding women.

Find out more about using essential oils during pregnancy and breastfeeding: How To Use Essential Oils.

Caring For Your Face Oil

Your Facial Oil No. 8 will last up to six months after opening if you care for it properly. All skincare products will oxidise if we don’t look after them.

Oxidisation occurs when oils are exposed to too much air, (oxygen), or too much direct sunlight. Your Facial Oil No. 8 may become oxidised if the lid of the bottle isn’t consistently kept firmly closed when not in use, or it is left on a sunny windowsill for prolonged periods.

Facial Oil No. 8 is always a pale blue colour, unless it is oxidised.

This means that Facial Oil No. 8 is at its most blue when it is opened for the first time, but it will grow paler over time. It remains safe to use as long as it is stored properly, but if the oil is completely clear it should be disposed of, as this reveals that it is oxidised.

Applying Facial Oil No. 8

Using Facial Oil No. 8 couldn’t be easier. Simply follow these steps…

  • Remove makeup
  • Exfoliate if needed, using hot water & a muslin cloth
  • Apply toner, if desired. (You will need less facial oil if you use a Hydrosol Toner.)
  • Place the pipette a few centimetres above your hand, and squeeze 2- 6 drops of facial oil on the pads of your fingertips.
  • Replace the pipette in your facial oil bottle, closing it with your other hand.
  • Do not touch your skin with the dispensing pipette to avoid contamination.
  • Rub the tips of your fingers together to spread & warm the oil.
  • Place the tips of your fingers just beneath your nose as you gently rub your fingers together. Inhale deeply whilst warming the oil to enjoy the calming & relaxing benefits of this oil.
  • After a couple of inhalations, gently press your oil coated fingertips onto for forehead, cheeks and chin, then gently rub the oil into your face.
  • Facial Oil No. 8 is suitable for application on eyelids as well as your face.
  • Use a little more oil if you intend to moisturise your neck & décolletage.

Winter Use Of Facial Oil No. 8

Facial Oil No. 8 has been formulated to be as light as possible for use during the summer months, and for those with small pores and delicate skin. This has been achieved by using the lightest carrier oils possible, making it what the skincare industry refer to as a ‘dry oil’.

Nevertheless, it is excellently moisturising in mild weather for most people.

However, we all need something a little heavier to completely protect our skin from the damaging effects of cold weather. Freezing temperatures are what cause thread veins, aka spider veins, and it can really dry out our skin as well, a condition known as xerosis. It can even prompt eczema outbreaks and hives.

Because Facial Oil No. 8 has been developed for hot weather use, it isn’t suitable for winter use on its own. However, it is possible to add a protective oil to your routine…

Accompanying Oils For Facial Oil No. 8

If you are determined to keep on using your Facial Oil No. 8 for day use well into the winter months, then augmenting it with enhanced protection from the ravages of the cold is important.

So, giving your Facial Oil No. 8 a protective boost in wintertime is a must. This can simply be done by adding one of the following oils:

Buriti Oil

Buriti Oil is an important ingredient in high-end beauty products that are formulated to moisturise, and support skin elasticity, suppleness and plumpness. It is fabulously nutritive, and full of essential fatty acids, which moisturise and protect.

Because Buriti Oil is really rich in all three main Omega Oils: Omega-3, Omega-6 and Omega-9, it is deeply moisturising, especially for mature skin. It is also one of the most highly recommended oils for nourishing and soothing cracked, dry skin.

Wild As the Wind also carries a gorgeous Organic Buriti Oil.

Bakuchiol Oil

Bakuchiol Oil is often added to treatments and skincare products aimed at helping people with mature or problematic skin.

There are many claims that Bakuchiol Oil can provide a successful treatment for acne, and there is hard science proving Bakuchiol Oil is better than retinol for our skin.

Bakuchiol Oil, is also known as :: Babchi Oil, Bakuchi Oil or Bawchi Oil, among others…

Organic Rosehip Oil

Rosehip Oil is again deeply nutritive, moisturising and protective. It is considered to be the best carrier oil to use as an after-sun oil because of this. But, it also provides much needed protection in the winter months.

Wild As the Wind also carries a beautiful Wildcrafted Organic Rosehip Oil.

This Wildcrafted Organic Rosehip Oil is present in Facial Oil No. 2, and is one of the reasons this oil is so protective during the winter months.

Organic Pomegranate Seed Oil

Organic Pomegranate Seed Oil is again an important ingredient in Facial Oil No. 2. It is a viscose oil, which provides it with protective superpowers. In addition, the punicic acid in Pomegranate Seed Oil makes it exceptionally supportive of skin health, endowing this special oil with skin repairing capabilities.

Other oils to consider are:

These fruit seed oils are less aromatic / pungent than the oils listed in more detail, and so may be preferred by some for this reason.

  1. ANGELA HUGHES (verified owner)

    This oil is on a whole new level of fantastic. I used to make my own facial serum. I used to buy my oils from Doterra. I stopped doing both when I found Wild as the Wind! The quality and choice of oils is far superior to anywhere I have used before. And the facial serum is perfect for my skin which feels amazing every day now.

  2. natalie hynde

    wonderful product. trustworthy source. do not hesitate to buy from this seller.
    i recommend this brand to all my friends now.

  3. Edwina Walker

    As Rachel knows this is my favourite face oil..smell..texture..quality..price all make it a must.My skin feels nurtured and loved and smells great..people are always asking what I use on my face..Thank you Rachel?

  4. Kirsty (verified owner)

    I use both No2 and No8 oils and love them both equally. The No8 is all zesty, zingy and light but still super moisturising. My super sensitive skin loves it and it smells orgasmic! Alternating which one I buy each time works for me – I might try the combo package next time.

    • Rachel Wild

      Thanks Kirsty, really appreciate your feedback. x x x

  5. Dunya K

    I’ve used No.8 in combo with No.2 for my combination skin. My skin used to feel a bit dry overall but these oils have really helped me to look normal???? I’ve no idea how you‘ve come up with these combos of ingredients, but they work! No.8 smells divine and absorbs into my skin straight away.
    I was wondering, cause they’re oils, if they’re going to leave my skin oily for ages. But skin absorbs like a sponge!
    I had to call my mum straight away on my first application to explain what I’ve found. There’s a science to facial care and you’ve bloody nailed it!
    I’ve been telling my friends how amazing they are too. I mean, just above excellent. The quality is insanely good. My skin feels so luxurious and nourished, properly. On a first night my skin was just soaking it in like sponge as if it was saying, give it to me, give it to me!!????I’ve been applying it every day since the first night and I’m just so happy.
    I knew they’d be good cause you seem like a person who cares about doing things right. Reminding us the nature has provided everything we need already and I love you for that. I’m very passionate (cause I grew up in the Mediterranean I think, air is infused with aromas from trees and plants, especially on a hot summer day and your oils took me right back to my favourite places at home) about magic of nature and herbs.
    I can honestly say no face cream compares, you already know that but just had to say it.

    • Rachel Wild

      Dear Dunya, thanks so much for your amazing feedback. I’m so glad the facial oils are working so well for you. I love what you have said about FACIAL OIL No. 2 in your other review. I’m so pleased that your scars are fading, and that you are alternating weekly between the two oils. This is a great way to use them. I see you are using them at night only… they are great to be used in the morning too, and help to protect our skin throughout the day. x x x

  6. Maria (verified owner)

    I absolutely love these products; the facial oil no 2 and 8 are so effective at improving mature skin – I have bought no 8 for my sister who lives abroad, the thieves oil has been so useful and I am so happy with my Shungite stone ( the other one I purchased is a present for my daughter).
    Thank you Rachel for making these natural, organic and good quality products. Looking forward to meeting you when you are in Bridport!

    • Rachel Wild

      Thanks for your great review! I’m so glad you are happy with all of the items you’ve been using, and I’m thrilled you really like your Elite Shungite Pendant. I love them, and wear at least two most of the time! Fingers crossed it won’t take long to find a great place to move to on the coast! I’ll see you then!

  7. Karen Bates (verified owner)

    I’ve been using Rachel’s facial oils for about 2 years. I am in my 50’s and my skin has a tendency to be dry around the mouth especially in winter. I use no 8 most of the time, which is light and smells beautiful, but in harsher weather I use the richer no 2 oil at night.
    As other reviewers have mentioned, I’ve noticed the sun damage on my face and hands has faded too since using these oils.
    They feel nourishing to my skin and I wouldn’t use anything else!

    • Rachel Wild

      Thanks Karen. Really appreciate your great feedback. And, really glad both face oils help so much x x x

  8. Annie (verified owner)

    In just two weeks of using FACIAL OIL No 8 the improvement to my skin is really noticeable. The tone is more even, pores are refining, scarring is disappearing and sun damage is improving.
    After applying it to my face, I rub the residual into my hands. I had had papery skin and liver spots (too much gardening). Already the texture of my skin is so much more youthful and all but one of the liver spots have gone (that stubborn one is disappearing and I’m sure it will be gone soon).
    This product is amazing. I am so impressed I have just bought some for my daughter.

    • Rachel Wild

      Hi Annie, what an amazing review. I’m very grateful. I love it when people precisely explain the benefits they’ve received from using a Wild As The Wind product… and I especially love it when it’s about the gorgeous FACIAL OIL No. 8. The healing ability of this face oil is so utterly profound… I wish the whole world knew about it!!! Thanks a million for helping me on my mission to spread the news. Sending love x x x x

  9. Christine Robinson

    Just ❤️ facial oils number 2 and 8. I use number 8 in the day. It smells absolutely divine and works wonders on my fine lines and wrinkles. I use it after using the toner and they work brilliantly, my skin feels silky soft, a definite keeper for me! Thank you Wild as the wind x Pre mixed & ready to go 5 stars from me x

    • Rachel Wild

      Thanks Christine, I’m thrilled FACIAL OIL No. 8 is working so well for you. It is profoundly healing and rejuvenating! It’s doing you a power of good <3 <3 x x

  10. Rachel Wild

    Hi Stephanie,
    Thanks so much for your amazing feedback. It’s very much appreciated. I care very much about everything I do for Wild As The Wind, and I care deeply about my customers, so I am always very grateful when customers truly understand and appreciate the efforts I make. Thank you x x x

  11. Stephanie Patton (verified owner)

    What an amazing find! The oils have done wonders for my skin and they both have a gorgeous scent. I use the lighter oil in the day and no.2 oil at night.
    Rachel your alchemy knowledge, love of what you do, care and thoughtfulness to your customers (hand written notes especially ) makes perusing choosing and buying your products a beautiful experience. Xx

  12. Katarina Sonntag

    I have tried to apply 5 stars, just thought I would say this as they seem to be greyed out, so if it comes out as anything other than 5, it wasn’t my intention. This review is sorely overdue, I have had ample opportunity to try this wonderful oil and would echo the review above in saying I use Facial Oil number 2 daily, and now vary it with number 8 too. The smell is simply fabulous, fresh, uplifting, and the green colour really does wonders for a reddish tired complexion. It is really great for me in summer especially, in winter it’s not quite rich enough so I stick with the Number 2 then. I have ultra dry skin, and need a lot of help with keeping it moist! We are about to move abroad, hopefully it will be possible to ship to the EU. Thank you Rachel, you are an alchemist!

    • Rachel Wild

      Thank you so much Katarina. I’m so glad you’ve been really enjoying No. 8 over the summer and that it’s been really helping to keep your skin well moisturised and has been giving you the lift you’ve needed x x x I’m sorry we’re going to be losing you, but the good news is I deliver to Europe, so no fears on that score x x x x Wishing you all the very best in your new home in your new life back on the continent. With love, Rachel x x x

  13. Clare Jackson (verified owner)

    I was and still am addicted to Facial Oil number 2. However Rachel asked me to try using oil number 8 alongside it. I have to say that it was a great idea. the two oils go well together and oil number 8 is just as good. If I use moisturising cream (if I ever run out of oil) then my skin feels dry. It lasts for ages too.Hurrah for Rachel

    • Rachel Wild

      Thanks Clare, I love No. 8 too. Some days i just know it’s the right one to go with because I really yearn for the smell of it. Our noses always know!

  14. Amanda (verified owner)

    5 stars, odering easy, delivery prompt, sensibly packaged, quality product. This feels like magic, the smell is deeply relaxing. You can feel it on your skin as a gentle tingle, like warm sun. First I was going to order chamomile for a rash and to give my face a pick-me up, I am 54, skin getting a bit dry & some lines now. Then I saw chamomile is an ingredient in this facial oil. I chose number 8 as it said it was a bit lighter than number 2. The oil is a blue green colour which, to me, shows the plant oils must still have the properties that make them beneficial for your health. I certainly feel relaxed and calm after using this and my rash has gone as has the quite sore eczema that was on my hands. All in all, a quality product, that has many more good effects than simply moisturising your face.

    • Rachel Wild

      Thanks so much for your really considered, eloquent appraisal of FACIAL IL No. 8. I’m so glad you have seen and felt dramatic improvements to your complexion and over-all well-being. I love making all of the Wild As the Wind blended products by hand to ensure optimal efficacy… but, receiving reviews like this one provide me with perfectly complete sense of fulfillment. I am so gladdened and grateful for your willingness to share your knowledge. x x x
