The reviews for this seem to be very hit and miss, but I must say that I adore this oil. To me, it’s absolutely perfect. I struggle with fungal acne and the occasional hormonal breakout. Other than that my skin is fairly “normal”, but lends itself to being oversensitive and very finicky with new products. My fungal acne is also extremely stubborn and highly reactive, but I’ve managed to keep it …Read more

I wanted to love this product, as it was my first purchase from The Ordinary, but it broke me out so badly! I would only use about 3-5 drops and the next day I would develop cystic acne in places I normally would not get it (normally I only experience cysts from hormonal causes). Someone recommended using this as a hair serum so that is all I will be using it for, or maybe as a hand moisturizer …Read more

I absolutely love this stuff, it's a thin non-sticky oil which my skin absorbs almost instantly, leaving my face soft, smooth and hydrated. Great to mix into any moisturizer but sometimes I use it by itself after moisturizing and as an eye treatment. Doesn't leave my combo skin feeling greasy at all. When I want something heavier I use the b-oil.

I have only just started using this. A little goes a long way. it is like a very thick syrup. I found it does not absorb and feels greasy on my face using just a few drops. but when I wiped off the excess with a tissue, it felt much nicer on my skin and very moisturizing. I think the way to go with this is to mix it in with other creams. I did get a pimple on my forehead the next day …Read more

I bought this for my hair as I'm tired of paying $14 for serum and was looking for something cheaper. It's pretty good, not amazing. I wanted something to take care of dryness and impart some sheen and this basically does that. It spreads evenly and it's a light oil, so good for hair. It does something a bit different from my cream-based serum, so I could actually see myself using …Read more

This is a too oily product for me. I have combination skin and this product just stay at the top when applied, and I only use two drops. it feels tacky and sticky..

I am not sure if this is the one that breaks out my skin, since I use 2-3 of the Original products together, could be the matrixyl... I have developed so many little oil bumps on my forehead and cheeks.

A true 3.5 product in my opinion, but I'm feeling generous so I'm rounding up. This gave a nice moisture boost to my skin this winter, but it's not a wonder product. I didn't find that it completely eradicated the need for a face oil, but I could alternate between this and a richer oil. I think this might be good for the warmer months of the year as well, when oils feel a bit …Read more

It's a nice product for my dry face, and I usually use it at night. Be careful to stay away from the eye area as it may go into the eye. After using it only for a few days, I find my skin a bit more softer and a bit more clearer. Sometimes when my skin is extra dry I top it up lightly with my rather thick moisturizer. Been using it for about 6 months now and still like it a lot.

Wanted so much to love this - I'd read its for all skin types so thought this was a good choice for my combination / oily skin. I've read not to use oils during the day (omg my nose would just be like an oil slick if I did) so thought this was a perfect night time booster to mix on top of the natural moisturising factors. First night I used it, it took about 30 mins to sink in but …Read more

I have always loved oils for my dry skin but never come across squalene before The Ordinary launched it. Now it seems to be the latest trend and available everywhere from GOW, Inkey list, Indeed, all at quite affordable prices. I personally love it, I find it melts into my skin at night sandwiched under a moisturizer and offers bounce and glow (not grease) during the day now that's winter …Read more
