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! 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.

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.

Okay

It left my skin very smooth and soft. However I use cream moisturizer and perfer that over oil. I was pleasantly surprised it did not leave my skin oily at all. But I was not impressed enough to buy.

Light and nourishing!
Sampled

I was pleasantly surprised by this face oil. Generally, I steer away from oils as I don't like that heavy, greasy feeling. But this was very light and moisturizing. It dried quickly enough that I could put makeup over it but was also nourishing enough to revive my combination skin. The sample size is very generous and allowed me to see results after just a week of application.

I received a full bottle as a gift and love it how refreshing it is. I even rub it on my chapped lips before bed and wake up with smooth kissable lips!

Not for MY face
Sampled

This is said to be used on the face but I was not a fan of how it felt on my face. However, it worked great in my décolleté area.. I'm a side sleeper and always wake with lines on my chest. When I use this at night, I have minimal lines.

Fragrance means a lot to me in a product, especially one that I put on my face. This product has a really nice subtle herbal scent that wakes your senses as it revives your complexion. My only caution is that you really only need 2-3 drops or your face will look greasy. The bottle I got will last a really long time at that rate.

Love It

Of all of the products I have received from Birchbox this is one of my top favorites. I was a little skeptical about the benefits of putting oil on my face - especially in the summer, but I did and it made my skin look awesome. Skin looks younger and fresher and the oil did not clog pores. This was a great find.

Rec as a sample. Ordering for a 2nd time!

I received this product in one of my boxes and loved how it provided the right amount of moisture without leaving me feel greasy. I am purchasing my second full size bottle today. I have used other face oils. This is my favorite so far!

Nice product

This is a nice product to try but it probably needs to be the right product for your skin type. Worth a try though
