calming sensual sweetness

What a great alternative to perfume - does double duty as a light perfume and an amazing skin softener! After using up my sample, I requested this as a Christmas gift. Unfortunately, the hubby did not follow my instructions to order from Birchbox, but you can bet I will be ordering from here when my current bottle runs out (not long now)!

love!

I never thought I would say I love putting oil on my face, but now I do. I have pretty sensitive skin and rarely try new products on my face for any length of time because I usually break out. I love this product. It soaks right in and doesn't feel greasy on your skin or hair. I love putting this all over my cleansed face and neck before I go to bed because skin looks so fresh and hydrated in the morning. I've been using it for a while now and still have over half a bottle left, so I think it's a pretty great value, too. Definitely one of my favorite Birchbox products.

It's a go!

I received a sample of this from Birchbox as part of a mystery pack with purchase. As soon as I opened the package, I was excited about the generous size of the sample. It comes in a little glass bottle with screw top (I read the full size has a spray top which would make applying without using too much easier) and it seemed like more than a score for a freebie. I opened the cap and smelled it, and was instantly in love with the fresh, light scent. On my skin, it smells even stronger, almost like a light perfume. I have read many people are hesitant to use it on their face and hair as the product describes, and I must admit I have not tried that either for fear of breakouts or greasy locks. It has been enough for me to fall in love simply rubbing small amounts on dry patches of skin and places I want the scent to linger, like my wrists and neck. I would hesitate to use this if you plan to use a perfume, I don't like mixing scents and this more than doubles for moisture and smelling nice. Oils last a long time so it's worth the purchase price! I will definitely buy more once my generous sample runs out!

LOVE

I loved this oil. I didn't use it on my face however. I just don't trust oils on my face but I used it on my neck and décolletage and arms. It smells so good and dried really quickly without leaving that greasy oil feel. I used this whole sample!!

Doubles as polish remover :(

I typically don't like oils of any kind on my hands. I gave this a try & will admit that I did feel a difference in my hands and other areas I applied. Hands were noticeably softer. The scent is lovely as well. HOWEVER, use carefully on fingers/cuticles. I unpleasantly discovered that it will streak away your nail polish. :(

Favorite Product

This has been by far my favorite Birchbox item. I love the way it makes my skin feel, especially right out of the shower. And I can't get enough of the smell! I'm not a fan of heavy perfumes but this oil has a really mild and fresh scent. I highly recommend!

Love!

I love this oil. Makes my skin look and feel amazing. And I love the scent. Not to strong but noticeable. I also love using it on the ends of my hair when I go out. Just a little extra something.

I like

Not something I would normally purchase but was a nice sample to receive. Smells good and isn't too thick and oily. I like to use it on my hands and elbows. I also put it in my hands and run over my hair!

Oil on my face? Yes please!

When I first received this sample I ignored it. But the more winter it got, the dryer my face got. I dabbed a little of this oil on my face and was hooked. It smells faint but rather luscious, feels good, and dries pretty quick. A little definitely goes a long way here. I've used it almost every day sense on my face at night and it's really helped it not be flaky and gross - and I don't feel self-conscious about scaly skin in public anymore! Because I don't have any. I am now a face oil believer.

Smell did not agree with me

I was pumped to get this because I like hair oil. It took me a few wears, also on my hands/wrists, to figure out it was the scent. It wasn't too floral, it was almost like an aftertaste type of smell, I don't know. Not a fan.
