I found it hard/annoying to apply with minimal impact on the way my skin felt after. I won't be purchasing this.

comedogenic but otherwise great
SampledPurchased

My very dry but otherwise decent skin immediately loved this product. Hydration & overall smoothness improved significantly. I used a few drops all over my face before applying serum & moisturizer both morning & night. I went through the sample in about a month & of course decided that splurging on the big guy ($78) was totally justified. After about 2-3 weeks my chin started breaking out the same way it did when I tried using coconut oil. After doing some research I found out that marula oil has a comedogenic rating of 3-4, the same as coconut oil (see reference below).

I’ll have to find an alternative oil for daily hydration & skin improvement but will continue to use my huge vat of marula oil weekly or biweekly, which I suspect will be tolerated.

WARNING: most people that use this oil regularly will breakout.

Not my favorite. Certainly not something I would use frequently.

I have super oily skin so putting oil on my face only makes me break out! So this sample is just not for me!

Marula Pure Beauty Oil

This is my first time trying any product from this brand, I love skin care more than makeup so I was intrigued to try this product. The packaging is very cute ,it is made from recycled materials and made with 100% wind power which makes it environmental friendly and is not tested on animals ,which is wonderful. Now for the product it self ,I'm not very fond of the smell I wish they would try it maybe with rose oil for fragrance , limonene and linalool makes me feel like I'm putting on a mosquito repellent. Now the product does absorb quickly which is good , and my skin does feel softer. I did not like it on my face but for the back of my hands , elbows and knees it feels great! It does hydrate but I would say about 70% is good for areas with thinner skin not for the face ,if you have oil prone skin I do not recommend it for your face. Overall I would say this product is a 6 out of 10 and I would love to try more products from this brand or learn more about them.

Left my skin oily for hours. When I touch my face there is a greasy residue.

Im not too into oils in general, so this was just a total flop for me.
