Gives a Glow

I really liked this product when I received it in my box. After buying a full size I have come across a few issues. One, it is kind of expensive for the size (1oz., =$80 ouch!) I find that a little much for what else is available on the market. Also, at first my skin looked really moisturized and had a glow but lately it seems a little more dull and I have a dry patch on both my cheeks? I do have very sensitive fair skin but was not anticipating this?
I will use this bottle until finished and see how my skin looks and feels before considering buying another bottle.

Worth the price

I enjoyed this sample so much when I received it that I bought the full size version. I suffer from rosacea, and many moisturizers irritate my skin. Using this regularly has actually helped reduce the redness and flare-ups that I have.
The texture is ok, and a few drops go a long way. As long as I use about 5 drops, I don't have a problem with my face looking or feeling oily. I also appreciate that it's made of organic ingredients.

Dry skin from the beach or winter weather

This is a great product that I use at night to condition my face after a long day at the beach with ocean salt water and long days in the sun. It feels so smooth going on, and soaks in very well so even though I am putting oil on my face it doesn't feel greasy. I love the way it makes my skin glow and feel the next day.

Amazing!

I am obsessed with this product. It smells lovely and leaves my skin so unbelievably soft! I have extremely dry skin, and I've been able to use this in place of my normal face lotions, which makes me happy since this is a more natural product free of chemicals and preservatives. Even though it's oil, it doesn't leave my face feeling oily. Only downside is its price...very expensive! :(

I LOVE THIS PRODUCT!

When I saw the price I was skeptical, but this product is amazing! The oil moisturizes the skin well and has helped with lines underneath my eyes and on my forehead. I will continue to purchase this product, it really has changed my skin.

the best

this is a very light, very luscious smelling oil. not a bit of "oily" feeling after a minute of massaging it in. i use a couple of drops on damp skin or mix it with a bit of a color or a tinted primer for a good non-makeup base that lasts and looks so natural. i also use this exclusively on my 8 year olds face and neck. she has super sensitive skin and is prone to regular bouts of excema, and this never irritates her and always soothes the inflamed areas. also, the smell is so calming for her. she is nonverbal and developmentally delayed and autistic and simple things like basic sensory appeal is extremely important for her. it is a rich and appealing spice and "oriental" almost kind of smell. earthy, kind of. i know the price is way out there, i KNOW, oh do i...but it is a tiny luxury that has been more than worth its cost, over and over for all 4 of us.

Reversed my dry, flaky skin

This is one of the best products I've ever gotten from Birchbox. I have an oily T-zone with dry cheeks. In the winter, I get flaky patches all over, even in the oily areas. I was reluctant to try this product because I thought the oil would make my oiliness worse and maybe cause breakouts. I was amazed by how my skin absorbed the oil; the flakiness went away immediately and there was no oily residue. My skin never looked better. I haven't bought the full-size yet because it's so expensive. I'm hoping to find a cheaper substitute.

great for dry skin

I purchase this product because I wanted to give some firmness and brightness to my face. I put the product on at night and my face feels smooth and silky in the morning. I have naturally drier skin so I don't worry about my face being oily. Because I do wear it at night, I have notice that it does get on my pillow while I sleep.

worth it

I am not one to spend so much on one product but I fell in love with the sample in Birchbox. I recently got a Clarisonic and tthis oil soaks right in for great skin. I've tried other brands but this is the winner.
