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.

Price is the only drawback

I have very dry skin in the winter, and my normal moisturizer just wasn't doing the trick this year. I remembered this sample and began using it under my regular drug-store moisturizer. My flakiness disappeared in days, and my skin finally felt soft again. The only negative characteristic is the price.

Amazing results
Purchased

I love this product. I have never used oil on my face prior to this product. I am 70 years old. Within 2 weeks of using this oil, morning and before bed, I noticed a huge difference in the texture of my skin and a more youthful appearance overall. I wish it wasn't so expensive but it's well worth the price and I will continue to purchase this wonderful, amazing oil!

Great!

I started using hair oil last year and tried this one out recently- it really makes my hair soft and gives a shine that other products have not been able to do!

Love this.

This oil is so great. I used the sample at night. I applied it after my other products and used it as my last step for moisture. A little goes a long way so the sample lasted me a few weeks. I only needed to use 2 to 3 drops. The oil absorbed quickly, meaning it sunk into my skin by the time I went to bed which is what I prefer. I could tell a difference in my skin in the morning. It was so soft - I love all the benefits that come with using this oil. I will definitely implement this into my routine once I need to replenish my night time moisturizer.

Feels great, but the price tag stings

This product is light, non-greasy and feels nourishing on my skin. No visible difference since I've regularly used it over the past several weeks, so for me it's more of a self-pampering item. Not sure it's worth the price.

Quite Enjoyable

I, like many other reviewers, had never used an oil on my face before. I got this in my box months ago and just remembered I had it recently. After 2 days of using it I've noticed a difference in the texture and tone of my skin. After I apply it my skin feels so soft and even seems to glow! I have really bad allergies and over time my eyes have begun to get saggy and I've even developed some wrinkles around them (even though I'm only 24) and I notice a definite difference in how supple the skin around my eyes looks after using this product. With that being said however, I'm sorry to say that $78 for 50 mL of this product is not in the budget and once my sample runs out I will be looking for much cheaper alternatives. Nice product, but the price tag is just too much for me (hence the 1 star deduction).

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.

Good

This product is good, but it isn't greatly different from comparable oils that are a lot more reasonably priced. Would not purchase this product.

Never thought I'd use oil on my face

Never in a million years did I think I would use oil on my face, much less love it. Even if it's a bit pricey, this product is a must have! I have sensitive combination skin and many products will cause me to break out so I was hesitant to try the oil when it came in my monthly birchbox. However, I travel most of the time for work and I have noticed more dry patches and fine lines on my face so I figured I would give this oil a try. It makes my face feel soft, but not greasy. The dry patches are gone, the lines diminished and my skin has NEVER felt greasy or broken out since using it. I am completely amazed!
