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.

Oil on my face? No way! But wait...

I would have never thought I'd want oil on my face for fear of suffering a teenage breakout. However, this did nothing of the sort. Hydrates perfectly, it's very balanced with the natural oils in your skin. I've recently became very fond of face oils and multi-use dry oils. I'm so happy they are becoming more popular and cost effective.

Love this stuff!
Purchased

Such a luxurious product. I use this at night and absolutely love how silky smooth it makes my face feel. I bought the full size and don't regret it at all. I think I will use this year-round to combat dry skin and keep my skin nourished.

Phenomenal!
Purchased

I have tried hundreds of moisturizers...including a few high end oils. NOTHING compares to the quality of this product. My skin stays hydrated and soft without feeling greasy. I could never live without it now!

fabulous but not for everyday.
Purchased

this oil has amazing effects but it's a little too heavy for me to use everyday. i say this because it seems to clog my pores but i just read an article that tells you to wash off residue after an hour so i may try that. all the beneficial components are supposed to get absorbed into your skin so it's allegedly not gonna lose any benefits!

Healing

I have rosacea and this oil leaves my sometimes sensitive and red skin with clarity and a glow. I live in the desert and received this sample in December - what a difference to have had this product in the dry winter months. It feels wonderful on your skin also. I use it mostly at night before putting on my moisturizer. I have also used it during the day and it goes well under make-up and even mineral powder make-up if you give it about 15 mins to fully absorb. This does not leave a oily residue or any oil behind - only a dewy finish. I've also been known to pop this on my face at any time during the day. I recently used it on a plane. Just a drop or two between your fingers and pressed to your face. I have purchased this product - it is worth it! I found I use less and less as time goes by - this may be due to the moisture it has infused into my skin.

Baby smooth skin

I have never been a big fan of using oil in my skin care routine because I have combination skin but this product really changed my mind. It moisturized my dry skin and didn't add any excessive oil to my oily spots. It made my face feel smooth and fresh. I wish it wasn't so expensive but it really is worth it.

Love this Product

Ok, it hasn't preformed any miracles but I love how great my skin feels when I use it. I also use it in my hair for extra shine.
