I bought this from sephora.com based on the good reviews. Thought I'd give these ubiquitous face oils a try. But this is much too fragranced for my sensitive skin. It's loaded with all those essential oil components like citral, eugenol, benzyl salicylate, and I've finally learned that I can't use anything that contains these ingredients. They're just too irritating. Rather than "balance" my skin, my face became a red, itchy mess while. I then tried using this as a hair oil, smoothing it on the ends of my hair. But then my scalp became itchy and I got little bumps on the nape of my neck!

I switched to predominantly Jurlique facial products about 8 months ago including this oil, which I use at night and mainly in the cooler months. I don't use it directly on my nose or chin (I tend to be very oily in those areas) unless they are visibly dry. It smells very nice and in the morning my skin is hydrated and glowing. I've even convinced my husband to use it and he probably goes through more than me!I use this oil, the balancing face wash and blemish cream, and together they've really evened out my skin tone, reduced redness and help me reduce the amount of foundation and concealer I wear.

This is one product I really wished had worked for me. I love the texture of this facial oil.While this facial oil feels light weight, it caused my skin to break out. I found out it was due to the Safflower oil (which is the first ingredient). I thought safflower oil was non-comedogenic but upon my findings (I had a really really bad break out from this) it can cause this. Now with that being said, everyone reacts to differently to things, and it has worked wonders for a lot of other posters but my skin congests very easily.The other comment I would like to make is on the scent. While the scent is really nice, it doesn't smell like it's completely natural. I have a feeling there is a synthetic ingredient in there. I could be wrong, but it's just a guess based on the scent.

I bought this a while ago, when my problematic skin was breaking out a bit after a bout of being relatively good. I don't remember how much it was, and I used a coupon, but it was quite expensive. I don't think I usually would have bought it, especially at the time since I was quite broke, but I was really distressed by the breakout I was having and also by how sensitive and almost painful my skin had become. I have problematic and scarred skin but at the time it had improved a bit and become more balanced.I had read all the good reviews and was expecting it to help clear and balance my oily but dehydrated skin. When I first used it, I was pleased--I loved the smell and it felt luxurious. I went to bed. The next day, all hell had broken loose. My pimples had worsened and my skin felt very sensitive. I kept using it and I developed really nasty cystic acne and my skin was super super sensitive and painful, while stile quite oily. I refused to believe the culprit was the Jurlique oil and switched all my skincare back to Cetaphil, and still I was getting these pimples. I was so upset. My skin was really shot to sh*t. My skin was in a relatively good place, but really didn't recover from using this oil for a long time--the pimples took about a month to fade, but the hypersensitivity to the point of pain hasn't quite gone yet. I think I must be allergic to some ingredient in the Jurlique oil, causing a reaction that even though it has long faded, still has my skin worse than before. Also, it's a good example of how "natural" ingredients can still be really terrible for you. If this works for you, great. But it really didn't for me and I'd suggest being quite careful with it.

Even though I said I would buy this product again, I am 50/50. I have sensitive, acne-prone skin and have been told not to put oils on my acne skin. This product neither improved nor made worse my acne. Pros- My skin did not have a harsh reaction to it- Found that it worked well, almost like a serum, before putting on my face cream- Lasts a long time, which can be attributed to....- ....Great dispenser that allows only a small amount of the product to be put on the face. Even though the instructions said that about 3 drops would be fine for the entire face, I ended up using a LOT more than that. Probably about 8 drops. Cons- A bit expensive- Didn't really see any results. Didn't do anything, positive or negative towards improving my skin. - Was not as moisturizing as I thought it would be. But wasn't drying either.

This is one of those face oils which is actually better suited for balancing oilier complexions. My skin is more normal to dry, and this dried it out even more! It didn't matter what moisturizer I applied on top of it, my skin felt parched and raw by midday. I feel the formula is too astringent. It's too bad, since I really loved the herbal aroma this gave off.

I use this underneath the moisture replenishing day cream. it absorbs immediately and leaves my skin baby soft and radiant. I enjoy the natural fragrance.

I recently decided to try out Jurlique based on their good reviews to combat my dehydrated skin. I am now using Lavender Hydration Mist, Skin Balancing Face Oil and Moisture Replenishing Day Cream. They are working well for me so far. The Skin Balancing Face Oil feels nice on the skin. I especially like the smell, very aromatic. I use about 3 drops for my whole face and neck every morning and night between the Lavender Mist and the Moisture Replenishing Day Cream. I have combination and dehydrated skin, oily T-zone and dry flaky patches here and there. This works well for me and doesn’t make my T-zone any oiler than it was. It is on the expensive side, but for the quality that it has, well worth it!

Though I have worked for Jurlique in the past and visited their gorgeous biodynamic farms as part of training (I'm not biased, I swear!) this is the only product I have ever actually purchased for myself while working there and I would have done so even at full retail price. I give it four stars because although it is a multi tasking product, I often find myself wanting to layer on something heavier in my dry spots when I use it as a moisturizer (hello, Weleda Skin Food!) and it can be a little expensive if you're not budgeting in advance. That said, it is a completely great all-rounder and I kinda think everyone could use a bottle. Unless you're sensitive to strong smells, in which case.. steer clear. The first time I tried it, I ended up giving the full pre-release bottle to my mother because the smell gave me one whopping great headache. Either they have toned down the fragrance or my nose just doesn't care any more, but please give it a whiff if you can before you buy because it is still very... distinctive, to say the least. I can imagine not everyone would like it as it's a very heady chamomile-geranium-rose scent.Routine wise, I use this on a damp face post cleanse & tone. Four to five drops warmed between my hands and dabbed all over my face. Once that's done, I press it all in with the 'press and release' motion that most Jurlique customers are used to hearing about and massage it around until it sinks in. Even-toned, healthy and glowing. Soothes my sensitive cheeks, calms any breakouts, keeps everything on my combination sensitive face happy and less likely to flare up or react when I do something stupid like try out six new products on my face at once. Jurlique, keepin' my prone-to-histrionics skin on the straight and narrow since 2006. Use it under your favorite mask. Dilute a few drops in massage oil if you really like someone enough to share it with them. Slather it all over your body and then regret that you did such a thing because suddenly there's a huge dent in your tiny 50ml bottle.. but by god do you smell good!My mum, who has only ever used oils on her skin for both cleansing and moisturizing, looks about ten years younger than she is. Genetics definitely play a part, but I can't deny that oils - and this oil in particular - are doing wonders for her skin and mine. It makes my skin feel nourished and I could easily use it all year 'round. In fact, I probably will. And then be very sad when I have to fork out for it again. A must have, in my opinion.

I really love Jurlique and their skin purifying mask and rose water balancing mist and I really thought I'd be over the moon for this oil too. I have been using it for a few months now and while my forehead seems to be perfectly moisturized, wrinkle free and glowing, my cheeks,chin, and around my nose are all flaking. My skin in that area feels super tight and no matter how much I use my Clarisonic brush to exfoliate, slather on the oil in the shower, my skin is terribly dry. I usually don't have such sensitive skin reactions towards products but I really noticed this one. I will have to buy a second moisturizer to layer on top as other users have suggested. This is definitely not convenient considering I paid almost $50 for the oil alone:(
