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.

Amazing!

I know this product is a splurge, but it is worth it! I purchased it after sampling thru Birchbox. It is super moisturizing and lasts a very long time. I have tried both Argan oil and this Marula, and I must say that my skin is simply glowing after using the Marula. I'd recommend trying it!

Sorry, too expensive, not worth it

I regularly use argan oil on my face and for $78 I can get a lot better results and a lot more oil. Hate to be negative, but I saw no real difference in this vs, my less expensive argan oil.

Awesome!

I absolutely LOVE this oil. It smells great and makes my face feel so good. It is especially nice to apply in the winter--to help with wind burn and chapping. I also like that my face/neck do not feel "oily" later. It absorbs quickly and just leaves smooth skin. The cool bottle design and dropper make me feel fancy!!

love marula oil

I was skeptical to put "oil" on my face as I am prone to break outs. I was surprisingly very impressed by this product. I applied it around eyes and found that it really helped diminish the fine lines around my eyes. I have applied it all over my face and I have not had any troubles with breaking out.
This is the first time I have taken the time to write a review. But I was so impressed with this product for the hydration and helping with the fine lines and not causing my pores to break out. Nice! A little dab will do ya.

Love this!

My skin is fickle, sometimes dry and flaky, sometimes slick...This oil absorbed quickly, did not leave an oily residue, and my skin looked amazing. I Highly recommend this product.

Very Practical!

I travel around a lot so the schedules and plane rides always messes with my skin. I'm not at the age where I need anti-aging products, but this helps replenish my skin after long-haul flights, especially in drier regions.

Love!

This oil is awesome, very light and fast absorbing. If it was not for the cost I would definitely order immediately, will need to save for this...but will definitely be getting soon.

Favorite Birchbox Item yet

I have to admit, I was skeptical that a drop of oil would make much of a difference and would never have even considered paying retail price for something like this. But was greatly surprised with the results. This product gave my skin a nice warm glow without feeling greasy. I got lots of compliments on my skin & feel it made me look younger. The sample size was big enough to use for over a week to really get a feel for long term affects. So it was great to have an opportunity to sample. This is my favorite Birchbox sample yet!

Good simple moisturizer

I have used both argan oil and jojoba oil. I found that the Marula oil works better. It absorbs into the skin nicely and helps balance my oily skin.
