Horrible smell

1

I have just received the oil recently. The smell of it is so bad that I cannot stand it. I will not purchase it again.

Amazing

I used to use rosehip oil religiously but it isn't enough for my skin in the winter and now my skin is less oily with age. Borage oil leaves my skin plumply hydrated and so glowy! The scent is strange at first but at least it's natural. I love it and will continue using it.

Smells so bad

1

I bought this because I have psoriasis so I thought it would be good for calming any flares on my face. The first few reviews I read were really positive but I wish I'd read a bit further because like so many other reviews on here, I can't use the stuff because it smells so, so bad. Somehow it smells meaty and I don't even know how that's possible. I would avoid unless you have no sense of smell!

Smell

2

The smell is so so so strong I cannot apply it to my face without it smelling already on my face. It also has a color, so if you apply it before going to sleep, there is a chance it will stain your pillowcase. I did not notice any results since I couldn't use it for too long because of the aforementioned reasons.

Very pleased

5

I have oily, eczema prone skin and it has completely cleared up my eczema and heals spots very quick. It is just very oily so would recommend wearing it at night instead of day.

Good product, but however the smell...

3

I really like this product, it feels thick so if you have dry skin that just needs something moisturising, this is great. I didn't notice the smell at first, however, after reading a review on here I started to take more notice. I actually don't like using this just because of the smell, it's like raw meat...... but if you can look past that, the results are excellent.

Chronic dry skin dream

5

I have had such a journey with my skin, it's unforgivingly dry, tight, and flakey. I have tried so many products over the years from moisturisers, facial scrubs and exfoliants, hyaluronic acid, masks and nothing seemed to work. I noticed a difference with this product after only a weeks use. It has completely changed my face, my skin is plump, youthful, bouncy and supple which it hasn't been for the best part of 8 years. Would love for this product to be available in a bigger size!

Amazing

5

I read the reviews about using this product for dry skin, and decided to order it. I've only been using it for two days but I can really feel/ see the difference In my skin. My skin is very dry and flakey and this seems to help so much! I use this at night, after I clean my face, I apply a few drops and rub it in. by the morning my skin is soft and lush. Honestly, I would recommend this to anyone!
