I found this product reading an article titled '10 Doctor Recommended Drugstore Moisturizers' (article found here: http://www.harpersbazaar.com/beauty/skin-care/dermatalogists-drugstore-moisturizers?link=rel&dom=yah_life&src=syn&mag=har ) and figured i would give it a try!
I love this oil! I have very sensitive combination skin that is prone to breakouts with the wrong product. I use Renova (a retina A product) at night and this in the day. Wow! it is great! Nice sanitary packaging with dropper to dispense product. I rub this on and it sinks right into my skin giving me a glow that keeps on going all day long. It is not greasy and my foundation applies smoothly with or without a primer.
I would really recommend this to EVERYONE! I tried Bobbi Brown's oil and it made me break out after one application...This stuff is truly amazing.
This is a wonderfully light department store quality skin treatment oil at a drug store price!
Really plumps up skin and makes it look healthy
Fragrance for those sensitive to fragrance
I really like this product. Despite having a variety of oils in it, I find that it absorbs for me quickly and is NOT greasy at all. I only use it at night, not during the day though. I use it as a night treatment, and probably use 10-12 drops to cover my face, neck and chest. That's more than the 4-5 drops recommended on the package, but I am covering alot of skin and since I'm using it at night I take the time to give myself a mini facial and massage it in gently. 4-5 drops would probably be ok just to cover face and for under makeup in the daytime. My skin is smoother and has much more glow. My lines around my eyes seen less pronounced. Glad I found this! I will keep using this product and probably buy more. I don't think it's expensive for how long this will last me. I got it for $20 at CVS and had a $2 coupon.
I like this especially after buying and trying Josie Maran Argain Oil. I think they both work well enough to smooth, NOT moisturize. This is not a moisturizing product at all especially if you are applying to dry skin. Any moisturizing benefits come with application to wet or damp skin, the water acts as a transporting agent for the oil. Anyway, I like it since I can use it in so many ways. I like to add drops to my body lotion, alone on wet/damp skin under nighttime moisturizer and with a couple drops added to my daytime moisturizer.
I tried the sample. I used more than instructed and did not break out or itch. This is the first of their skincare products that worked for me. I love their foundations, but am allergic to any of their skincare and moisturizers. I am planning to buy a bottle once I am finished with my very pricy Liz Arden capsules.
Best and most affordable oil I have found yet. Great blend of oils. Provides moisture and balances skin.
I use on nights opposite using a chemical exfoliant. I have oily skin but dehydrated, so it gives me hydration/balance without grease. I apply 2-3 drops and the formula absorbs completely while still allowing time to gently pat into the skin without tugging.
I wake with smooth, hydrated skin and any blemishes have diminished.
I would recommend this oil for every skin type, since everyone needs hydration. There are no pore clogging ingredients like mineral oil. And oily skins fear not because an oil will balance you out, not make you more oily!
The only downfall is the inclusion of fragrance, but unless you buy an organic oil, fragrance will likely be included. (and organic usually smells bad because of that!)
Great value at around 20 (a steal for a quality oil) in a nice bottle with dropper. L'oreal hits it out of the park when they get it right!
I really love this facial oil. My skin isn't that dry but I want to prevent winkles and keep my skin hydrated. I use 3-4 drops on my face before bed and my skin looks much more radiant even when I wash it off in the morning. No breakouts or any bad effects! I wouldn't use this in the morning or recommend this for people that have oily skin. The smell is a little overwhelming but not bad in my opinion. I would definite purchase again. L'Oreal products are slowly taking over my makeup collection!
LOVE this stuff. I have dry skin and nothing works like this does for me. Does not break me out and leaves my skin super soft and yes, glowy. I would not have liked this in my 20's and 30's but it does what it says for my 40 something skin!! I was using the Josie Maran argan oil and when finished with the bottle wanted to try this to see if it was better. Glad I did as after 2 weeks my skin is so much less dry and looks and feels so nice. I did not use it the other day and I could feel the difference and even noticed my face not looking as radiant. I use 4-5 drops am and pm. At night I add my moisturizer over the top once it's soaked in about 10 minutes. Seriously, in the morning my skin looks good. Some have complained about the smell. I have used many products that have had more of an scent to them but It's not an issue if the product works. I'll buy this again and again and hope they do not discontinue it!
This product works really well for me. I have combination skin that gets quite dry in the Colorado fall season and this has kept me nicely hydrated. I have been applying it morning and night for two months with no breakouts.
I dislike the added PARFUM/ FRAGRANCE ingredient and have a local oil/herb shop that makes their own face oil. It is made with neroli so I will buy that before I buy this again.
I have really sensitive skin, and immediately broke out in a rash from this product. Also, I found the scent to be quite overwhelming...even when applied under my unscented moisturizer. It felt very greasy to me when on my skin, even though my skin is very dry. I'm sticking to my unscented moisturizer, with my weekly treatment of plain e.v. olive oil on my face from now on.
