Face oil

I enjoy a good face oil and I love the 3 products that go together, but it was nothing super special.

Nice face oil
Sampled

My skin is pretty dry and this oil feels pretty good, no complaints. Strangely though, the smell is similar or at least reminds me of another Birchbox sample from way back, Shea Terra Organics Rose Hips Black Soap Deep Pore Facial Cleanser, yet they don't have any similar ingredients as far as I can tell.

love it!
Sampled

It feels so amazing and give my skin such a great shine and lift! I have really enjoyed this product and I was surprised that I liked it so much! I think it has been super effective in reducing puffiness around my eyes and softening a little bit of my fine lines. But its great to give a vibrant look to my skin immediately!

Pleasant Suprise
Sampled

As someone who is very prone to breakouts I was worried about using oil on my face. I was surprised to find that I do NOT break out! I even used it multiple times to make sure my skin wasn't playing a trick. I really enjoyed how my skin felt too! Doesn't cure blemishes of course so I will probably stick to my skin clearing products. I didn't have a problem with the scent. It is strong, but it just reminds me of massage oils. I'm glad I tried this sample.

Night oil
Sampled

I would use it over night to sleep with so moisturize, and it does a good job, but I don't think i would purchase it. I don't really need it. I think I got another face oil in my birchbox last month and I loved it.

Nice oil
Sampled

I definitely liked this. It feels nice on the skin. However I already use a moisturizer I am very happy with plus there was not enough in the sample size to let me know if over a few days of use this will break out my skin.

Smells nice
Sampled

So, I definitely like the smell, but idea of putting oil on my face just doesn't work for me. Ii have combination oily/dry skin as it is.

Fragrance
Sampled

I like facial oils in general and this had a nice rich texture- would have been good to use at night. Unfortunately, I will not use it because of the potentially irritating essential oils including lavender and ginger.

Yep, it's a face oil....
Sampled

I've just recently had to stop taking birth control pills, and my face is over producing oil. So I've switched to all oil free stuff. However, I did try this product since I received the sample in my box, and honestly, I didn't notice anything especially wonderful or unique about this oil. Very little scent, not unusual for an oil.
