Best Product for Dry/ Oily skin

I did not get a sample of this product, but purchased based on reviews. I have been using this product daily for 3 months now and am thinking of stockpiling it for years to come! It has been the only moisturizer I have tried that keeps the flaky dry skin away and reduces the oil on my nose and forehead. I think it smells great- light and luxurious. I wish the scent would linger for longer! I use 2 drops two times per day, one more if it is very cold or dry outside. I have acne- prone skin and it has seemed to help decrease the instance of zits. New staple!

My skin has never looked better!

Oil on my oily skin?! Terrible idea, I thought, but then I tried this magic potion. Quickly absorbed, this makes my face look and feel amazing. I use 3-4 drops at night for extra moisture and the recommended 1-2 after I shower before I put on my makeup (do it while your skin is warm and still a touch damp for best distribution, and let it absorb for 5-10 minutes while you're getting dressed before applying makeup). Since starting this product I have had clearer, softer skin, with noticeably diminished lines (even the deep ones in my forehead). The smell is a bit funky but it fades quickly and now I'm used to it. I like that they didn't fake perfume it.

Awesome for Combo Skin

I purchased this because of all of the positive reviews and it did not disappoint. I used 2 drops and blot all over my face and it perfectly moisturizes. It seems to work near my eye area as well, so much that I haven't needed eye cream.

My (hormonal) breakouts are less frequent. I would used the acne purifying serum in addition for any little areas, as needed.

It seems that a little goes a long way. I will be purchasing this again. By far, the best moisturizer for oily/combo skin with patches of dry.

Not the greatest smell, but I honestly have barely been getting acne at all since I started using this product! When I put this on my face at night and a moisturizer on top, my skin feels amazingly soft in the morning. This is the best skin I've had!

Amazing Face Oil

This face oil is so amazing.
I was first introduced to this product at a spa on vacation, so for me the smell reminds me of the spa.
The texture is rich and feels protective when you put it on.
After a few minutes product absorbs into skin and skin doesn't look too shiny. I use this in both morning and night.

I also really like that it feels breathable on skin.

TERRIBLE experience

I bought this facial oil after reading all of the rave reviews. I'm in my early 30's and have sensitive, somewhat problematic, combination skin (dry in some areas, oily in others). I live in a very humid southern climate where temps reach 75+ degrees 9 months out of the year so I'm always looking for products that will help balance out my skin.

Unfortunately, I had a really terrible experience with this product. I started breaking a little bit within two days after using this product once at night. I used very little (one large drop that I rubbed around in my palms and then pressed my palms against my skin) after my normal routine (cleansing --> toner --> vitamin E serum --> moisturizer). I thought maybe I was just breaking out a bit due to my cycle; however, by the end of the first week I had developed one of the WORST breakouts I have EVER had. I had these terrible pustules (the type of whitehead with a reddish ring around it) all over my forehead and cheeks, areas which are rarely problematic for me. They have taken well over two weeks to heal completely, and there are still areas of my skin that have yet to return to normal.

I'm certainly disappointed I didn't have the same glowing results so many other people did. I am usually the type of person to use an entire bottle of product, even if I'm not totally happy with the initial results, because I understand that your skin can take 6-8 weeks to really respond to a new regimen; however, there is no way I could have continued to use this product with the reactions I was having.

I'm not sure if my skin just reacted badly to the oil itself, if there was something in this oil that reacted with one of my other skin care products, or if I just live in too humid of a climate to use a facial oil. I'm too scared of the possible side effects to try using this product again without my serum or moisturizer. If you try this oil, I would HIGHLY recommend that you test it out on certain areas of your face (e.g., maybe the side of your cheek or forehead) before applying it all over like I did. And I hope no one else has a bad reaction like I did!

Blown Away!!!

So, when I first considered putting oil on my already oily face - I thought it was going to be a bad experiment. OMG I am so glad I purchased this stuff. My skin is baby smooth soft, moisturized, and it feels weightless - like I have put NOTHING at all on my skin (a feeling I love). Furthermore, I've noticed that this oil actually CONTROLS oil on my face. CRAZY right? If you have oily skin and live in a dry climate - I highly recommend this stuff. It controls oil while moisturizing, something I thought I'd never find!!!

Good, but not great (for me)

I bought this in hopes that it'd be a cheaper alternative to Sunday Riley's Luna Oil (my HG), but it's nearly as moisturizing. I found that my skin didn't seem to absorb it and I couldn't shake the feeling of greasiness.

It also didn't work well with my foundation because my foundation constantly oxygenated and I looked like a troll.

It's a nice face oil, but it's no Luna oil dupe.

Didn't work for me

I wanted to like this - no, I wanted to LOVE this but it just didn't work for me. I have sensitive, oily skin and it just broke me out like crazy.

Skin Savior

This face oil has almost cured my oily skin problems. I use 1-2 times a day, all year long, and it curbs my skins overproduction of oil while keeping it moisturized fully. I have had acne problems resulting from my oily skin for around 10 years, and this product is the one thing I have found that has made the greatest difference. I would recommend this to anyone with oily or combination skin (my skin gets patchy spots of eczema in the winter) who wants some relief. Definitely worth it.
