Marula – The Leakey Collection Omega Rich Facial Oil

Move over, argan. This newcomer to the world of oils is gaining serious momentum. Prized by African women for eons, marula oil comes from the fruit of the marula tree and is prized for its anti-aging powers: it has higher levels of antioxidants and omega fatty acids than its more well-known competitors. Its benefits are two-fold: first, it protects your skin against the damaging free radicals that accelerate aging. Next, it visibly reduces the look of existing wrinkles, from pesky crow’s feet to the parentheses marks framing your lips. Plus, we love the gorgeous glass bottle and handy pipette dropper that lets you dispense the exact amount you need every time.

Greasy and caused breakouts

I used this product twice for the sample I received. The product left my face feeling grease and cause breakouts. This product is not for me.

I'm not sure what Birchbox's obsession with oils is, but I'm really getting tired of getting these useless things in my monthly box. As someone with generally oily skin and hair, the last thing I need is to add more oil as part of my beauty regimen, and this particular product--while I appreciate that it's from a socially conscious manufacturer--is all the more useless to me because of its anti-aging properties. How many 23 year olds do you know who use anti-aging products? No thanks.

It just made my face feels so greasy and gross. I barely used it and it was just too much for my face.

A little disappointed in Birchbox this month to be honest. I'm 28 years old and received 2 items (of 5 total) that are completely geared for mature/aged and dry skin which is the opposite of my skin type (oily) and age (28). This product made me breakout as did the other. Both I gave to my mother. I'm guessing these may work well for the people who they created this for.

Since i have oily skin I'm not into facial oils. I also don't like the scent.
On the front of my card it says "healthy hair products" but there weren't any hair products in my box!!

Maybe with more time

I just used the sample bottle - maybe it takes longer, but honestly I didn't ever begin to see a bit of difference. I seemed like it took quite a bit to cover my face. Other similar products seem to spread nicer.
