I decided to give topial oils another try but unfortunately this blend is not for me. I used only a drop at night but within a week my skin was congested, broke out in small pimples, and I noticed bumps under the skin. There were no lifestyle and skin care changes in my life at the moment, so this oil was the culprit. I've read that sea buckthorn oil helps some people, so I'm heading to my health store to purchase pure sea buckthorn oil, or in a different base, to see whether it's beneficial. Otherwise, I'll stick to eating avocados.
I was hoping this wasn't one of those heavy pore clogging oil and I was right! This is so moisturizing sinks right into my skin like it drank a glass of water and my skin literally glows from using this!! Doset leave a shiny/tacky residue which I hate. Love love love omg cannot rave enough about this oil. I am now done with facial moisturizers
I'll be 55 in about a month.
Like most of us I'm always looking for a magical lotion. Not that Seaberry is that, but I do love the way it leaves my skin looking and feeling.
Very soft, not oily, and a bit " plumper"
I find my makeup goes on better, and doesn't settle in the lines on my face.
I know some people do not care for the smell, I like it. :)
The bottle and dropper is great. It has a long dropper, and around the opening is a plastic ring so when you pull the dropper out it cleans the outside of the dropper so you don't waste any, and my guess it also seals it to keep it fresher longer.
It is costly, but you really only need a few drops.
I mix it with my facial wash then add a few drops to my face, wait a minute then use my moisterizer. Over kill maybe...
I did find it on eBay for abit less then the store and Amazon.
I bout this two weeks ago after reading about it in Allure mag. I have combination skin, and after my second child had issues with adult acne. Now that I'm pregnant again and can't use any of my retinoids, I've been searching for a new skin regimen that would work.
I was skeptical at first to use this on my face since its oil. But from what I've read, if you used too much anti acne products, you're skin will compensate by producing more oil. Made perfect sense to me so I decided to buy it after reading such great reviews on MUA and all across the web.
So after over two weeks of using this in conjunction with Caudelie's radiance serum, night cell renewal cream and day cream, my face is almost clear!!! I haven't had any cystic spots, and my scarring is lightening up!!! I also use this oil in the morning if my face feels kind of dry. It makes my foundation look amazing!!! Like I have a glow!!! Will cont continue to purchase!!!
Short and simple. At night my routine is Mia, Philosophy Help Me, then the Fresh Seaberry on top. My giant pores have shrunk so much. Your mature skin will love you!!!! The only problem is I can't quit touching my face! LOVE IT!!!!!
This product is absolutely wonderful! I've tried a few different face oils, Tarte Maracuja Oil and Josie Maran Argan Oil, and they were...okay, meh, not the best. My skin is pretty normal usually, but veering more on the dry side in the winter months/after doing a chemical peel or detoxifying mask.
As soon as I smoothed a few drops of the Seaberry Oil onto my face, I knew I loved it. This oil instantly penetrates the skin, nourishing with a blend of moisturizing and repairing oils which balance the skin's hydration levels and help to fade scars. It also includes omega's 3, 6, 7 & 9, which are quite vital to our bodies though we do not naturally produce them. Also, it totally smells like breakfast...which, honestly, doesn't bother me.
Generally, at night, I wash my face with Fresh Soy Cleanser and smooth a few drops of the Seaberry Oil over my skin, using anything residual to tap around the eye area. In the morning, I wash with Dr. Dennis Gross Foaming Cleanser and mix a cocktail of 1 pump Darphin Emulsion, 1 pump Fresh Rose Gel Cream, and 1/2 drop Seaberry Oil...let me tell you, it is DIVINE. My skin is glowing with no oiliness, and my foundation just glides right over it. My skin has been very receptive to this oil, and has become more softened, more consistently hydrated, and minor acne scarring has been reduced.
The packaging is really lovely, reminds me of an old-fashioned apothecary-type bottle. The dropper controls the product very well.
I'm the type of person who is very sensitive to smells of facial and body products... And to me I couldn't get over the fact this smelled like curry / meat / sausage ... I can't describe it... But it smells awful :( I tried a little sample of it from sephora and took it home to try... Holy guacamole!!! I thought I could stand the smell after I tried it on... But I couldn't... I wish I could say I tried it more than once but the smell was terrible. If they changed the scent I would try it again but for now... No thanks.
I got this because a Sephora MUA recommended it. I must say that I didn't notice drastic changes as other people. I was told that this oil even healed burns. Yet, I am quite happy with the fact that it soothes breakouts and redness. While I know that a lot of people uses this by itself, I use it underneath a moisturizer. This product is ideal for those living in places with harsh winter. I don't know if my skin will stand it once is summer. However, now that it is winter I am quite thankful for the MUA's suggestion.
Hello, miracle product! I tried this on a whim at Sephora and bought it two days later. I literally saw a difference within a DAY of using this. I use three drops typically, so the bottle should last a long time (bonus, since it's around $50/bottle). My skin's texture has dramatically changed, it's like supple velvet now-even my boyfriend noticed which is an oddity in itself. I've always been a devoted Korres skin care type of gal, but I've been cheating on Korres nonstop since finding this product. In addition to being moisturizing, it's given my skin a back lit kind of glow that I've never been able to replicate. As a bonus, it's caused 0 clogged pores/pimples. Love it, love it, love it!
Love this hydrating oil! It smells like buckthorn ! But sometimes I feel like it smells like sausage lol. It is jam packed with omegas 3 6 7 And 9 ! That means it covers everything it kills bacteria moisture , hydration and anti aging as well as brightness! Can't say enough great things about this I even mix this with body lotion to rub on the boyfriend to keep his eczema at bay! Love it!
