I use this to add a dose of moisture at night when the weather is particularly drying on my skin. By morning, my skin feels rehydrated and rebalanced.
I was wary of trying this because some oils are just too heavy and sit on my face. Other reviewers also mentioned the smell, so I was concerned because I'm super sensitive to smell. But it smells really nice, in a herbal/oceany/medicinal way (super hard to describe lol) and the oil itself is obviously high quality and lovely.
This retinol seriously smooths out the skin and just gives me this airbrushed glow, even more so than Maya Chia's the straight A. However I love both products for different reasons and will use then forever.
This is a really nice face oil, one of my favorites that I’ve tried. Especially for my dry skin
