I had this for a while (gift from esthetician) but couldn't quite figure out how/if to work it into my routine. Then winter hit hard. And my face, particularly the chin area where I get waxed and threaded, was starting to get rough and flake-y despite trying every face cream I had. Saw this in the medicine cabinet and...it worked great. The oil created a barricade against the cold air, plus it got the roughness under control where even the richest cream wouldn't. It isn't something I'd use daily (although that's what it was recommended for) because it's oilier than I prefer, but for winter use and especially calming roughed-up skin - what other reviewers have said - it's perfect.

This is a lovely luxury facial oil. I think it was in the sale on ASOS or similar which is why I tried it and glad I did. Firstly, i have olive skin with an oily tendency and this does not make my skin oily. I apply it at night after cleansing etc. Has a wonderful smell and melts into my skin sumptuously. really feel like i'm treating my skin when i put this on and spend a few minutes massaging it in. I don't necessarily use it every night but easily a few times a week and the little bottle i have has lasted over a year already so it's definitely worth the money even at full price. when you turn the bottle upside down the rubber stopper works almost like a pipette and only lets the oil drip out slowly bit by bit so you won't pour it all over the place. when i wake up in the morning my skin looks energised and supple. doesn't aggravate my spots and in most cases helps them, especially if they've scabbed over and gone scaly, this helps them disappear quicker. try it, hopefully you'll love it as much as me.

I am finally half way through the bottle so I feel like I can write a review. I think this stuff is fabulous. I do not use it every day. I use it when my skin is feeling irritated or breaking out and it is really soothing. The packaging is nice because the dropper only allows it to get a small amount out at a time and you have to hold the bottle pointing straight down. At times it seems like a pain but trust me you will be happy if it opens up in your makeup bag like mine did and you have no spills. I also use this product when a want an extra glow. I will do my makeup and then as a finally step put this on places I want to be extra glowy. I always get compliments on my skin when I do it this way...and I do not have good skin. This product may seem expensive but it lasts a long time. I am so glad I tried this, it really helps my sensitive skin!

I like this product, but haven't used it enough at home to say whether it has helped with my breakouts yet. The esthetician uses it on me when I get facials at Ole Henriksen and it's really nice and makes the experience a lot more relaxing and luxurious.

Got a sample of this and tested it out on my hand and it left a big red mark. Didn't get round to actually trying this on my face. I think some people could be allergic to this like I was so I'd suggest getting a sample and trying it out first before you pay for the hefty price tag.
