This is a decent face oil. It's on the thicker side though, so I only use it at night. I've been using it whenever my skin seems irritated since it's supposed to be calming, and have experienced no breakouts from it. For some reason the scent reminds me of horses.
I purchased this oil since it specifically said it was good for sensitive/ reactive skin and would help calm skin conditions (like eczema). I do suffer from occasional eczema outbreaks on my face and this oil has calmed them down (relieved itching and re-hydrated the area). This oil is medium viscosity, but is quickly absorbed by the skin. I am mixing this with another (thicker) face oil during my morning routine and it helps dilute the ticker oil and help the thicker oil absorb faster. I would definitely recommend trying this oil if you are curious about face oils and have sensitive skin, for under $5 it is fantastic.
For $4.20 this oil has many uses! I transferred this oil into a super small sample squirt bottle to take in my purse to shop for foundations. I use one pump of the sample bottle foundation I wanted to buy and add 2 drops of this oil, mix it at the back of my hand. Some foundations that turned orange and ashy (oxidizes) right away I won’t buy. I also use this oil liberally on face, neck and décolletage as AM moisturizer on top of my Hada Labo milky lotion and before sunscreen on my makeup free days. This oil does not leave sticky residue nor film. So far it keeps my dry and flaky skin hydrated in cooler weather.
This oil is alil heavy and tacky on the face. It does take quite sometime to sink in. I would def not recommend if your in a rush. It also has a lingering odor. I’m not sure if it’s a must have quite yet.
