I used 4 bottles of this and loved it and received comments on how nice my skin looks. It also looks great under makeup and makes it go on very smooth.
For some reason I switched -- maybe boredom, maybe thinking there is something better out there but I tell you this is amazing. As soon as I use up my other products I'm going right back to this product.
There is no miracle, but this makes your skin glow, softer, less lined, moisturized and doesn't irritate my senstive/acne prone skin. Getting compliments isn't too shabby either!
Oh and I love that it's easy to find and a little pricey but well worth it!
HG esp for dry aging skin in winter. I put this on my palms and pat it on my face. Sinks in quickly and just leaves a glowy, hydrating sheen. The scent isn't my fav but disapates quickly after application. I use it AM & PM under moisterizer and also under make-up without any problems. Picked this little gem up for $5 but would pay full price next time w/o blinking. My face looks better - glowing, hydrated, rested and lines less noticable in 2 days then going thru bottle after bottle of expensive department store serums!!! continued >>
This serum is amazing. I have been using it daily for the past year. (I have gone through three bottles in one year). It's worth it. I have skin that is prone to breakouts; however, this serum works as an excellent skin moisturizer. It doesn't break me out and moisturizes my skin. All in all, it's my HG moisturizer.
I really wanted to like this, based on all of the great reviews and just the nice idea of putting natural stuff on my face instead of chemical-laden moisturizers and night creams. The oil smelled nice--a little plant-like--and seemed to sink in pretty well. Unfortunately, after about 2 days of using the product, my skin started to break out. :-( I do have sensitive, acne-prone skin (lucky me!) so maybe slapping oil on my face isn't the best idea. Still, the packaging is cute and I like the smell, and am definitely behind trying to use natural ingredients for face products. I was even willing to pay the steep price (I paid $25 USD) if this product worked for me, but alas, my skin didn't like this.
Wonderful product. I found my skin too sensitive to use straight-up rosa mosqueta (see my review for Aubrey Organics' oil), however, this oil from Burt's is a good blend of borage, rose hip, jojoba, wheat germ and other extracts which soothe and moisturize the skin.
The scent is delightful but is subtle and fades rather quickly. The product is natural enough to eat, which I love. And it gives me a glow like no other serum. I wish I could buy it in a 2 ounce container, however, as this depletes quickly.
I like to use this both at night and during the day, just after washing my face. Sometimes I will even dab a smidge of the oil on my crow's feet AFTER I've done my makeup. It just softens everything and makes me look younger and more glowy. The oil sinks in nicely to no ill effect, but that being said, my skin is on the drier side.
John Masters has a similar product in a larger container, but I think this oil from Burt's has more Rosa Mosqueta, which is high in Vitamin A and could perhaps be considered a very weak retinoid. That I like, because even though I use Retin-A and/or Taz, I find that utilize multiple retinoids gives me the best results.
I plan to keep buying this in the future.
UPDATE::: I will probably not buy it again in the future, after using for a few months, it's not doing anything for me, in fact, lines look the same if not worse. Back to retin-a, which works, and possibly Kiehl's line reducing concentrate.
Although not a miracle worker, this serum truly does everything it says it would. My fine lines are noticeably more filled in after I use this serum, although the effect only seems to last about 1/2 to a full day (which is fine, since I use this serum every night anyhow). Your skin feels unbelievably smooth after using it, especially the morning after you put it on before you go to sleep.
Since it IS a cocktail of oils, you shouldn't be surprised if you look, well, kind of oily after putting it on. It's actually a very subtle sheen so you don't look like you're dripping with sweat or anything, so it doesn't bother me very much. On the other hand, it doesn't soak in fully for an hour or two, which is why it's best used at night. It has a strong, herbal smell which may bother some people, but doesn't bother me at all.
The only thing I'd really pick about this serum is that it's quite expensive (somewhere around $24). I know the oils are all organic and are derives from very good fruits/plants, but I also know that regular olive oil can get also get you super soft, smooth skin for a lot less money. On the other hand, I don't think olive oil helps as much with the fine lines, so I'll stick to this serum. You only need a few drops for your face (less if you're targeting specific areas like your eyes and your forehead) so a little bottle will go a long way.
I LOVE this product. I bought it because I'm 32 and I'd like to reduce/prevent lines around my mouth and eyes. I have periodic breakouts and very dry skin. I've been using this product at night after I wash my face. I use 5-6 drops over my entire face and it's been amazing. I think it's cleared my skin, and my skin tone is more even and it feels smoother. The serum is greasy which is why I only use it before bed. I will continue to use it and see if it works as well during the dry winter.
WOW.....WHAT A FIND! I am in my late 30's and have noticed the fine lines under my eyes becoming more prominent lately. Have been searching all over for something to revitalize my aging skin. After reading the fantastic reviews, I decided to purchase a bottle of this stuff. Got a great deal on eBay for $10 bucks!!! I really, really like this serum. It has a very unique smell. Many others do not like it, but I think it smells fresh and clean. After showering I dab a couple drops under each eye, feels like I am really pampering those pesky crows feet. I wake up to softer, more supple skin. YES LADIES....THIS REALLY DOES WORK. If you are tired of wasting money on expensive creams that do not provide results, buy some of this. It is all natural and not tested on animals. My skin hasn't looked this wonderful in years. HG....WITHOUT A DOUBT:)
This is a must have for eczema sufferers!! I rarely get flare ups on my face but somehow (probably from trying all these different products!) I had a bad one all over my face. This stuff is really nursing my skin back to health and a little goes a long way. I also notice that my complexion is looking better overall, and I need less makeup.
I have been using this for a month at night after cleansing. I use 3 drops for my whole face. It is my moisturizer, because I have dry skin that can't take regular lotions or creams without breaking out. I love that this is 100% natural. The price isn't an issue for me, because this will last me 5-6 months with daily use. I absolutely love the bottle and dropper, makes it very easy to use the right amount. It sinks in very quickly and doesn't leave me greasy at all.
