nyakio™ Hydrating Face Oil With Kola Nut

We’ll come right out and say it: We’ve gone a little nuts over this face oil from nyakio. Just a few drops of the lightweight formula, a blend of eight oils and the African kola nut, last a full 12 hours. Its powerful hydration keeps our skin looking more luminous, even, and youthful all day long.

The best moisturizer I have ever used. My skin is so soft. It does not leave any oily feeling after. I would definitely recommend.

Incredible
Sampled

I can't believe using oil in place of face lotion isn't more popular! I will never go back to using regular face lotion. This oil left my skin hydrated all day without leaving it oily at all. I was nervous because I don't have great skin but this stuff really is a miracle worker. I have combination skin with occasional acne and I think this definitely helped to prevent breakouts because it left my skin so calm.

Based on the product, it's worth 5 stars but I only gave 4 because of the price. I ended up buying a similar product online for a quarter of the price.

Very nice Oil
Purchased

I am getting in the face oils because they aren't oily, which doesn't make sense, but I love the way they make my skin feel. Not heavy or oily at all.

Too heavy for my liking
Sampled

I found the oil to be a bit heavy and left my face feeling greasy. It may work for other skin types fine but it's not something I really fell in love with.

Sweet moisture

A little bit goes a long way with this one, even on my very dry skin. Scent is nice and subtle. Doesn't leave me feeling oily and never leaves me looking shiny.

lightweight and left my face soft!
Sampled

Great alternative to a thick moisterizer. Left my face feeling hydrated and clean. Good under makeup or even mix in a few drops with your foundation for a fresh faced look.

a favorite oil...

Love the non-oily feel. Just a drop or two provides ample coverage. Would like a comparable product for the eyes.

The best! Changed my mind about oils!
SampledPurchased

I had tried a handful of face oils to replace my more traditional lotion moisturizers, but none had won me over until this. I use about 5-6 drops to cover my whole face and neck. One of my primary skin complaints is oily skin, but since I started using this, I have less issues with my skin feeling oily half way through my day. My face and neck break out less too. I'm so happy this was sent to me in my Birchbox one month as a sample.

Hydrating

Great face oil. Hydrates very well and smells great. Not a big fan of oil on my face though and the process of applying it but otherwise it works great

Lightweight, nourishing face oil
SampledPurchased

Love this oil as part of my nightly ritual -- probably could wear it under makeup because it's so lightweight, but I prefer to apply it to freshly-cleansed skin at night and really let it sink in while I sleep. I wake up every morning with baby soft skin primed for a lighter layer in the morning. Just a few drops go a long way, so the bottle lasts a really long time.
