I used to really like this product before they obviously did something to change the formula. It used to be an intensely orange scented oil with a deep orange color that temporarily stained my skin orange but provided a brightening effect as well as evened out my skin tone. Now it looks watered down and the awesome orange scent lasted a couple of minutes. Gone is the brightening effect and the even skin tone. I guess they figured they'd charge a premium for orangey smelling oil and no one would notice. Packaging is good as its an opaque glass bottle but that's all I can like about this product. I'm disappointed because I've purchased this product several times but will returning this one to the store and purchasing a better quality vitamin C treatment. I'm never purchasing this or any Ole Henriksen product again.

TLDR; It's a smelly moisturizing oil, that provided little - no changes for me (after only a 2 week trial)I decided I want to start introduce some vit c in a small way to my night time skincare routine and this was my first attempt. It may have tempered that desire. The smell. Oh dear god. I got one of those fish mixed with citrus ones. I opened it and threw it away. Then I immediately dug it out of the trash and told myself, I paid for it, TRY IT. So, I used it at night, a few days before and a few after a mild retinol/wrinkle cream (followed by my serums then cream). The order didn't seem to matter. No breakouts or irritation to my skin (including my rosacea which I was most worried about since I read this has citrus oils). It feels a bit like a dry oil - greasy on my finger tips, but once on my face, it dried fairly quickly (got absorbed?). Didn't really feel like there was any residue or it was sitting on my skin, so I continued with the rest as normal. After 2 weeks and no visible changes to my skin, I just turfed it for real this time. My nose just hates those couple of minutes. Oh, I do love the packaging though. That style of pump is one of faves.

I like this oil. It feels very nourishing. I haven't had any adverse reactions to this at all. A few drops massaged in at night has me waking up with beautiful, glowing skin. I like the citrus smell. I also like how it contains Retinol. It seems to be helping with some of my post acne pigmentation marks. I love facial oils. This one is no exception.

UGH. Just a huge NO.This product is SO OILY it leaves my skin looking like an oil slick and that's strange because I have such dry skin. It is impossible to wear in the day, as applying makeup over this is a disaster...even with my Cover FX Mattifying Primer, my makeup was sliding off my face. And that is a problem as one benefits most from wearing vitamin C products in the daytime.So...that leaves you with night usage. HOWEVER, that is if you can overcome the biggest stumbling block of all. This smells absolutely horrible! It has a fake perfumey orange smell that gives me migranes.I do not recommend this product at all!

I don't smell anything fishy in this oil, its more of a strong orange peel which is clean and refreshing to me. I have combo skin so I wouldn't dare apply this before makeup everyday. I apply it 2x a week before bed and my skin looks bright and even. I am 24 yr old smoker with breakouts. No dark spots, a couple wrinkles under the eyes, some hardcore dark circles, discoloration on my lids, and red cheeks. It completely hydrates and brightens my skin and evens out my complexion a little after only one use. I find the results of this oil to better than the serum. I honestly didn't believe my skin could improve anymore since using my Clarisonic, but I was wrong. Now I feel a little more comfortable leaving the house without makeup on, I love it. My only complaint is the packaging on the bottle I received. The pump doesn't work so I have to unscrew it and dump it in my hand which is messy, wasteful, and annoying. overall, great product for brightening.

I like this because it seems like a concentrated version of the Truth Serum (which I love!) and it makes my skin smooth and bright and glowy. BUT because it's an oil, I can only use it at night. With my combo-oily skin there's no way I can use this in the daytime without looking like a greasy mess.Even though im not a fan of facial oils, I have to say I would buy this again. Great results!

I love this oil. Pros: hydrates amazingly, cleared out all of my acne scars so much faster than it would fade usually, skin glowy and balanced. Cons: doesn't work well when I have large active breakouts (I find clarins lotus does a better job at clearing active breakouts), be very careful using during the day as it is a bit much under makeup. Scent: not a great fan but I got over it.

I was a but wary of the current oil trend in skincare since I have had extremely oily skin for the past year or so. However, once I tried Tartr Pure Maracuja Oil, I was impressed that somehow it didn't simply add to the oiliness/shine, but had many benefits including a more even skin tone, etc. Considering I prefer Ole Henriksen products over Tarte for skincare related products, I thought this would be a home run. Instead, it performed in the way I feared it would. It simply made me look like a shiny, greasy mess. I used it multiple ways, as suggested. I used it as a serum, mixed with my moisturizer, and as a moisturizer. None of these tweaks made a difference and had the same result. I definitely wouldn't recommend wearing this under makeup, unless perhaps you have very dry skin and want to mix some with your moisturizer. Even this I would be cautious with. The scent does not bother me; in fact I love the citrus-y/orange scent of most OH products. The price point isn't unreasonable, but I think there are other oils/similar products in this price range that would perform much better. The only people I could see benefitting from this product are those with extremely dry skin. Otherwise, skip!

This does not smell good to me. I do not smell juicy oranges but more of the bitter orange peel. Not great.Didn't feel heavy on my oily skin but took a while too absorb. My neck stayed greasy. There's no way I could use this under makeup.At night it was just...whatever. Nothing special. Didn't make any change to my skin other than make me shinier then I am on my own. To me this was overpriced and little result.Maybe it would be best for someone with dry skin and someone who likes using oils on their skin.I'm not a fan

I LOVE this oil. I received it as a gift and didnīt expect to like it but I do. It really smooths down those lines. The first few times I tried it I was actually surprised every time I looked in a mirror. It really makes a difference for me. So far Iīve tried the Nuxe oil and the LīOccitane Immortelle oil but I like the Ole Hendriksen best.I donīt know if it would work for younger skin but for my 50 year old dry skin it works wonders!
