I am totally addicted to this brand's cleansing oil. I've been using it for more than 10 years and I never had the slightest problem with it. I always get samples of other stuff when I repurchase the oil. Most of their skin creams are iffy because they break me out ... except this oil. Like on other occasions, two weeks ago I had an annoying case of small pimples due to another product. I washed my face with Neutrogena's Acne Wash, and treated the pimples with something from Clean&Clear, I forget the name. It helped, except for two SoB pimples which simply refused to respond to the treatment. However, it left my aging oily skin rather on the dry side. In despair, I got hold of this, pumped one drop (ONE) in the palm of my hand, rubbed my hands together, pressed (pressed, not rubbed in) them on my squeaky-clean skin at night, and went to bed hoping for the best. And the best happened. The two little bastards disappeared overnight, and my skin lost its parched appearance, and looked soft and much smoother.
No, don't ask me to explain it. I couldn't, if my life depended on it. All I can say is that this oil saved my skin from pimples on more than one occasion. ONE drop is all you need. Anything more than that is overkill, will make you greasy unnecessarily, and will just be a waste of product. One drop absorbs perfectly well.
I bought the bottle long ago, once when it was on sale (it's very pricey). I'm half-way through it. I keep it in a cool, dry, dark place and it's kept perfectly well for all this time. No cloudiness, no weird smell, nothing of the sort. I only use this at night, on its own, after scrupulously cleaning my skin. It may not work for others, but it works beautifully for me.
