This is a high quality, high performance facial oil for all skin types. You can customize and make our own serum/treatment b mixing it with their soothing aloe gel. For active skin that has been overprocessed and sensitized by harsh products, this oil really calms and nourishes the skin but it's not heavy on the skin. I have dry skin, and this is one of my winter go-tos.

This i a very well blended oil, sensorial experience makes you put more than our skin actually needs! Great for all skin types, but for oily skin, I would mix a few drops in to one of their serums. You can use a thin layer of it under clay and mud masks. It's great as a body oil as well.

I just started to use this at night to address aging issues and broken capillaries. It's working on both ends, esp. on the broken capillaries and reducing the appearance of redness the next day.

The company recommends this for dehydrated sensitive skin, but as an esthetician, I would only recommend this for dehydrated oily skin type as it has alcohol and you can feel it on your skin. The gel texture and the scent is nice but mislabeled.

The celeb reviews created a very high expectation of this product - it is the worst cleanser with medicinal scent experience, heavy texture and the unclean feeling it leaves. You have to double and triple wash, which strips the skin. Never buy the rough muslin cloth they recommend to buy because it just scratches your face. If you need a wash cloth get the Gerber diaper cloth, a soft gauze.

Shu Uemura has been my go-to for cleansing oils and I had high hopes for a special feature touted on the product description. I like their basic formulation - formulation closer to the original.

Having used this for more than a decade, I love this product!! Even though Jurlique's website indicates this product is for 'all except for sensitive,' the exfoliator is mild for sensitive skin, which I have. What I do - winter time use it once a week, summer time twice. If you have oilier/active skin type, you can increase the frequency of use depending on how your skin condition …Read more

I had been a big fan of this product, using it for at least 5 years. This product really makes your skin dewy and youthful. I have stopped buying it because of the continuous increase in price that feels like faster than the nyc real estate. It contain a paraben. I deducted 2 stars for these reasons.

Having been a long time user of SKII's Facial Treatment Essence, but feeling the price increase, I am in the search of a great softening and revitalizing 'leave on' toner. TBS's version is a great value replacement for some of the high-end brands with great ingredient disclosure. Scent is refreshingly citrus.
