Birchbox Breakdown

It’s taken a while for us to come around to the idea of putting oil directly onto our skin, but now that we have, we don’t know how we ever lived without it. Rather than leave our skin slick, this essential oil dries to a lustrous, lightly fragranced finish. It’s versatile, too — use it on your body, face, and hair.

How it Works

A blend of six different essential oils, including Sweet Almond, Camellia, Hazelnut, and Macadamia, this multi-purpose oil hydrates skin and gives it a velvety sheen. In addition to the natural reparative plant oils, the formula also includes a good dose of healing vitamin E.

How to Use

As a skin treatment, rub a few drops between the palms of your hands and smooth over face or body, concentrating on rough patches. To replenish dry hair, use sparingly and work a few drops through the ends of strands.

Borage, St Johnswort, Sweet Almond, Camellia, Hazelnut, Macadamia Plant Oils

was hesitant about an oil, but WOW
Purchased

This is now my new favorite moisturizer. I use this morning and night and my acne prone skin looks and feels amazing. Previous moisturizers left my skin feeling greasy in the morning when I woke up and would allow my skin to get oily midway through the day. This balances my skin perfectly, even in the Georgia heat and humidity. For the first time in years, my skin looks so amazing that I can go out in public without makeup and not feel self-conscious at all. After only two weeks, my skin has a healthy glow and a very smooth texture. I am currently only using it on my face, and based on what I have used so far this will last at least 6 months. That works out to only about $5 a month (well worth it).

Love the oil and the fragrance
Purchased

I just wish the lovely smell lasted a bit longer. It does exactly what it says. It is a dry oil. It rubs in an does not leave any greasy feeling, but deeply hydrates, especially after a bath or shower.

wonderful aroma

I must say as far as the oils go, this one is surprisingly good, I say surprisingly because I don't generally care too much for oils. However, this one has been more moisturizing and better smelling than any other. I got It as a sample in a local store and I'm intending to buy a full size this month at birchbox. The smell is definitely a summer smell/ beachy, and its smooth, silky and great. I like it a lot.

I am in love
Purchased

Oh my. This stuff makes me, and my face, and my nose, so so happy. It looks like a small bottle, but a little goes a long way. I only use this on my face, because I'm too cheap to use the amount I'd need/want to use on my entire body, and it totally makes my skin glow. And did I mention the smell? It is so, so, so good. Clean, fresh, kind of smells like roses. Nothing overwhelming, but it's half the reason I can smile when it's super early in the morning. I know, you probably have a mental block about putting oil on your face, but you should get rid of it. I have acne prone skin and this stuff doesn't make me break out at ALL. I actually feel like the oiliness of my skin is more balanced now that I use this regularly. Have I convinced you yet that you need this in your life? Final point - it does last a really long time. I've had mine for about 3 months and I would guess I'll get another 2 - 3 months of daily use out of it. Buy this! Your skin will be so happy!

Great feel, great smell
Purchased

I lived in Hawaii when I first ordered this product where it is humid and hot and putting anything thick or oily on your skin made you want to immidately take a shower. Cue dry oil, this stuff was GREAT. I needed a solution to moisturizing after harsh sun at the beach, but lotion was too greasy and heavy. The texture of the dry oil was awesome, I don't have words for it, silky? It made my skin feel soft and supple again, but it didn't' feel like I put anything on. Besides the smell is sooooo amazing, sometimes I would put this on my shoulders when they were bare to sort of double as a fragrance and give my shoulders that healthy glowy skin look.

Love it!
Purchased

I've ordered this twice now and find that I use it every morning post shower. It's particularly useful in the winter, with dull skin, but the summer benefits as well. Wearing shorts or a dress, this oil adds hydration and provides your legs with a nice healthy glow!

Not greasy, just perfect!

Pretty Good
Purchased

I received my bottle about a week ago and have been using it every day. For me, I found that mixing it with lotion is best as I found it too difficult to rub on my body without using a ton of it and I want the bottle to last as long as possible due to the price. I have pretty dry legs and this product alone did not seem to moisturize as much as I would have liked. Love the smell!

simply divine
Purchased

This really is a multi-use product. A few drops patted on face and neck post-shower sinks right in, and smells divine. Great on ends of hair, as well. Elegant

Smells like honeysuckle!!

Best moisturizer ever for my skin, and it smells just like real honeysuckles. I bought this on a whim and now I cant wait to take showers just to use this afterwards. Treat yourself and buy a bottle--it makes moisturizing feel like a treat!!

AMAZING
Purchased

This oil is the best for mountain living. Instead of having to slather on heavily chemically lotions, this is a nice natural alternative. Plus the smell is a nice subtle fragrance and you'll have little use for any perfume.
