Face oils can go a long way toward keeping skin moisturized and maintaining an overall glow. There's no shortage of options at this point, so there's truly an oil out there for everyone. (Yep, even people with oily skin.)

But one oil that's definitely worth considering has celebrities singing its praises: Mara Algae + Moringa Universal Face Oil (Buy It, $40,

Exhibit A: Olivia Munn just posted a glowy pic on Instagram, giving credit to the face oil. "Been using that Algae + Moringa Face Oil from @themarabeauty." she wrote. Munn previously said she spends "a lot of energy on thinking about and researching what it takes to keep your skin looking young and healthy," so her enthusiasm for the face oil speaks volumes.

Chrissy Teigen is a big fan of Mara Algae + Moringa Universal Face Oil, too. She spoke about the oil in a recent Instagram Story, sharing that she'd forgotten to include it in the full breakdown of her skin-care routine that she posted earlier this month.

In her fresh-faced Instagram Story, Teigen said she uses the oil after removing her makeup. "Work done, makeup off. MARA face oil, that's my jam. MARA, M-A-R-A, face oil," she said, according to Cosmopolitan UK.

Another celeb who swears by the face oil: Jen Atkin. Back when the hairstylist shared a look at her skin-care shelf—which, BTW, is organized by color (so pleasing to look at)—she showed off her collection of face oils, including cult favorites like Sunday Riley Luna Retinol Sleeping Night Oil and, of course, Mara Algae + Moringa Universal Face Oil, calling the latter "so amazing."

So, why are people acting like this is the best face oil on Earth? For one thing, it's made with nourishing ingredients such as algae extract, which is high in antioxidants that can help deactivate free radicals that damage the skin. The oils in the formula—sunflower, moringa, and grape seed top the list—are low on the comedogenicity scale, meaning they're less likely to clog pores.

As the name suggests, Mara Algae + Moringa Universal Face Oil is meant to suit all skin types, plus it ticks all the boxes for people who prefer clean beauty products. It's vegan and alcohol-, phthalate-, and fragrance-free. (Related: Retinol Oils That Actually Hydrate Your Skin)

Now that Teigen has quite literally spelled it out for you, you can get in on a face oil that she—and some of her fellow celebs—have been loving.
