i just donīt get it! i wanted to love this knowing all the benefits of grape seed oil on the skin, but it dried out my skin more instead of actually moisturizing it! which is something that puzzles me! i bought now foods brand from gnc , and i am just hoping that they have a good return policy, i have had the stuff for less than a week, and my skin doesn't like it.
if they donīt let me return it i will use it for makeup remover and wash my face after.
i did return this to gnc, wasn't worth the money.
but i only put this at a 3 because this oil makes my skin feel tight, and drier.
I kept it that i would not buy again, but i would recommend anyone (oily?) to try this and see how their skin reacts.
Grapeseed oil is an astringent & drying oil, I did not know that before when I first used the product.
if you do decide to try this, buy this at a grocery store/health food store because it will be cheaper. my grocery store had a sale 16oz for $3 and GNC's now foods was $10 for 16oz.
This is my HG makeup remover! It removes everything in a cinch, it's cheap and best of all it's natural. Not only does it remove my makeup, the oil keeps my skin soft and supple. Because it is filled with antioxidants and other good stuff, I feel like my skin is also looking better and that the grapeseed oil has helped keep breakouts under control and blackheads away.
All those expensive skinlines can kiss my booty (claudalie I'm looking at u) how they go on and on about their secret magical ingredient grapeseed oil which is supposed to stop wrinkles, making ppl shell out $30+ for tiny products.
I bought 16 oz of pure grapeseed oil for $10. It is perfection on oily/combo skin because it's the lightest oil I've ever used. It balances out the skin within a week. I use it as a cleanser and after-shower moisturizer for the face.
I tried it on my legs but it wasn't moisturizing enough so if you tend to get dry mix this with a heavier oil like almond or olive for sufficient moisture.
ETA: I used to have cystic acne, using this with mint julep mask and pure rose water as toner got rid of them completely within 1 month. You cannot know how petrified I was trying it but just trusted MUAers and nailbunny it all worked out. It wont work for everyone, we all have different problems and causation but this worked perfectly on me.
Great at removing makeup, doesn't sting the eyes (unlike almond oil), and is a good little barrier. My skin soaks it up completely within 1 hr.
Even if you only use it as an eye makeup remover, it'll still save you loads of money and are much safer than products with 10+ ingredients.
Grapeseed oil is exceptional no matter what purpose you use it for (culinary, nutrition, beauty, etc). It feels very light & is anti-oxidant. Highly recommend.
I mix grapeseed oil with coarse sea salt for a wonderful body scrub! It also works well as a pre-shave treatment.
I like grape seed oil very much. I use it to remove make-up from my eyes after shower. It removes make-up better than any other remover I tried, and I like that even if a little bit of it is left on my eye area afterwards, it's only good for the skin. I use it near eyes because I've read it's the best oil to use near that area. After removing make-up with it, I put on a night cream. Love it.
would i but this again well
yes and no
for the face NO it does clog my pores i bought mine from now solutions at my organic store.i used this when i ran out of my clinique acne solution moisturizer and was using it for about a week and im breaking out in pimples everywhere.
for the skin and hair YES this makes my dull hair shiny and soft and im glad i found something natural to put in my hair besides oil sheen which can be loaded with tons of ingredients.and it does make my skin super soft like a babys bottoms but only for a couple of minutes.
but this is a great hair and skin moisturizer but for the face no.
I buy this grapeseed oil from Tom Thumb for $8.00 for a 12 oz bottle. It really is so much lighter than olive oil. Like Kately, I tried the oil cleansing method with evoo and found it awesome at first, but that is eventually gave me breakouts. Also, I found that I really like the feel of skin after cleaning with a sudsy cleaner. So I add a capfull to my L'oreal skin genesis pore minimizxing cleanser. My skin is a lot less dry and I have no breakouts or dry patches.
My newest and more interesting use for it is as an additive to at home color. I used Ion 10A last night with 20 Peroxide and a couple of capfuls of this and my hair did not feel like straw and the color looks great. I looks like a few shades and more brassy version of the swatch at Sallys'. I've never tried to add oil to hair color, but someone over reviewing Argan Oil mentioned adding it to the color and I figured it you can add Argan oil, why not grapeseed?
Love this. multi-purpose. I use this to moisturize dry patches on my skin in winter. Doesn't break out my sensitive combination skin. Takes off eye makeup easily. Also can be used as a hair treatment..
I think I might be a grapeseed convert. Years ago, I was trying to go an all-natural skin routine so I started using olive oil on my acne-prone skin. The thing is olive oil was way too rich for my skin and gave me cysts and breakouts. I stopped using it and my skin started getting better. Flashforward to today, still have the acne-prone skin, but I think it's more under control now. So I decided I wanted to try all-natural route again and was researching different skin oils on MUA boards and I kept seeing people mention grapeseed oil. Right now, I'm trying to get through about two and a half containers of moisturizer, so while I would like to switch over entirely to grapeseed oil, I'm still using the other stuff I have as not to waste it. I do like how my skin feel like with grapeseed oil. It feels kind of sticky but when I wake up, my skin feels pretty normal. I marked packaging down because it's not very skin-use friendly but then again, it's food grade grapeseed oil and not found in the cosmetic aisle. I worry about cleanliness and contaminating my bottle of grapeseed oil even though I wash my hands right before I apply this. I also sometimes take this internally, it tastes a lot like olive oil and it's a light green. It's too early to say if it's doing anything positive, but I hope so. I have two cysts on my cheek right now, I'm not sure if it's the grapeseed oil or not, but i really like this so far. I think as soon as I'm finished with my moisturizers, which might be a year from now HONESTLY, I hope to use this exclusively. Until then, I use this every so often, mostly as a nighttime moisturizer. I have high hopes for this oil and my skin.
