Tiny sample

I don't know how I feel about this the sample size was very small so I don't feel I have a good enough experience with it to comment.

Great as a priming oil

I've had my Nyakio Hydrating Face Oil for about a year now and lately have been using it as a "priming oil" and finding that it works fantastic with oil based foundations.

Apply a few drops to your face at key points, gently "rub" in and allow your skin to soak it up and after a few minutes apply your liquid or cream foundation.

Downside. Because it is a nut oil there is a nutty smell to it which to some may be off putting. I've grown accustomed to the nutty smell however it wasn't pleasing to me at first.

refreshing

This oil is amazing. Once I got over the initial thought that my face was greasy and let it absorb after a few minutes i really liked it. I have cystic acne and get dry spots every once in awhile. Since i have been using this after the shower or washing my face my skin gas not had any flare ups. I love that its all natural and has a great simple smell. It did seem pricey the first time i bought it but the bottle has lasted me over 7 months now (and i use a lot more than the few drops!) Will be repurchasing this again and again

Loved this!
SampledPurchased

I loved the sample and bought the full sized product. One of the better oils that I've tried. I have oily skin but this didn't irritate it or make it break out. That being said, I think almond oil would work just as well.

It works on all skin types with out feeling greasy. It makes your skin super soft and hydrated. It's a must try.

Love it! Perfect for my skin!
Sampled

I was a little hesitant to try it as I've never put oil on my face before. I have oily sensitive skin and anything used to make my face break out, but this oil is light and fast absorbent. I only need a few drops. At first it seems like it's not enough, but once my skin absorbs the oil, it feels soft and not oily at all. And it smells great! I think I'll stop using moisturizers and start using this on my face from now on!

Sample size not enough to get a true reading of the usefulness of this product

Wasn't really effective

I have dry skin, and the oil felt a little sticky but then didn't really make a difference

It has a nice consistency and leaves the face feeling soft. However, I wish it came with a droplet or pump because a lot of product is wasted from pouring it into hands.
