Okay oilThis oil is pretty average. I originally purchased it as it looked like a dupe for herbivore botanicals. I have found nothing too amazing with it. I’ve been pretty underwhelmed bu the “treatment”. The smell is a little unpleasant. The texture is pretty heavy and doesn’t soak or sink in easily. You get what you pay for with this oil and I will not repurchase.
okayit was okay, but I do feel though it broke my skin on the cheeks. It did, however, make my skin feel brighter.
Mermaid facial oilthis mermaid facial oil is super cute and makes a great gift!
Love this oilI received this oil in the mini size as a gift with purchase and have since purchased the full size. I found that a little goes a long way. I've been using this oil in the mornings because if is so light weight and doesn't leave me feeling greasy during the day and it gives my skin a nice glow for the day since I don't wear makeup to work often. The packaging so beautiful as well!!
SurprisingI wasn't expecting to like this as much as I do! I have skin that is prone to dehydration and I have to be careful as it's quite sensitive and prone to breakouts, so I tried the small size first. This was very nourishing and left my skin glowy and plump looking. It was non irritating and didn't cause breakouts. I actually mix a little bit of this oil with my foundation (powder foundation) and it gives a beautiful natural glow finish. I'll be buying the full size!
I figured out it must be the citrus aurantium oilAKA Petitgrain/amara /neroli oil that causes dry patches and breakouts, apparently it has a sensitising effect so just be aware if you have sensitive skin!
Works so well with the quartz toolI love using this on my cheeks as my cheeks can get dry and I like to use the sculpting tool on them. I wouldn’t use it on my chin as I can be prone to breaking out there but for my cheeks it’s amazing
Nice oilThe actual product is lovely- it smells great and feels amazing, plus the packaging is awesome.. BUT be careful if you have acne-prone skin. Maybe only use this once a week as more of treatment because I was using it daily and I broke out. Beautiful product though, super-rich and hydrating.
Lovely oilI was really impressed with this oil. I’ve been using it as the last step in my skin care routine a few nights a week and my skin is so soft In the mornings after using this. Doesn’t make me break out or make my skin oily. A great oil, especially for the price.
Skin feels plump and soft overnightI’ve been using this face oil 2-3 times a week for about a month now. I use it at night underneath my moisturiser and my skin feels much smoother and plump in the morning.
Impressive Facial OilI'm a huge fan of facial oils and always have one incorporated in my daily routine.
I received Mermaid Oil as a free sample which is lucky as it isn't an oil I would have considered otherwise (unless by recommendation).
I fell in love with this product instantly. I have thick-ish skin which is often dehydrated and has a tendency to break out (especially when super dehydrated).
This oil goes on smooth and instantly makes my skin feel more nourished. I never have new spots in the morning after slathering it on the night before.
After I finished the sample, I went back to using Rosehip Oil and my skin did not like it. I purchased a full-size bottle of Mermaid Oil and and went back to hydrated, supple goodness.
I'll probably be condemned by 100 makeup artists, but I've been mixing a little with my foundation and patting it on with my beauty blender and I get the most amazing glow. Best of all, it doesn't affect the longevity of my foundation.
Bottom line: If you're into oils (and you should be) and you're skin is dry/dull/dehydrated, give this a crack.
Great for lighter daysThis oil is super lightweight and smells incredible! Perfect for days you dont need a heavy oil.

Love the scent!I saw some reviews before buying that some people hated how this facial oil smelled, but i personally LOVED it. The scent reminds me of a herbal concoction and the oil itself, mixed with my gel moisturiser works well together.
Gorgeous packagingAdmittedly when looking for a face oil I was drawn to this cute packaging and naming. I don’t love the smell of the oil, but the application is nice. However it left me with little breakouts on my face.
Great all rounder and no breakouts!I got this along with the eye-babe oil (admittedly mainly I was drawn to the cute packaging). I think this is a great oil! I have heaps of oils but am always on the lookout for one that has lots of different antioxidants jammed in - this fits the bill for that, but more importantly for me it doesn’t seem to make me break out. I chop and change between lots of products but find myself reaching for this quite a bit recently. Works really well on top of light moisturiser too.
Love it!I received a sample of this a little while ago and only started using it recently. I don't know why I waited so long, it's wonderful. I roll it in with a jade roller 1-2 times a week, it's light and absorbs well and my skin is always soft and glowy the next day.
Used weekly it doesn't aggravate my redness or cause any breakouts so I'm sold
Super hydratingI’ve been using this for a week now and it has improved my complexion. I always have red patches on my cheeks in winter, this has fixed it right up!
Would recommend this to anyone looking for extra hydration.
Not so greati bought this from reading the reviews and hoping it would help out the dry areas on my face but it really hasn't helped me at all, it does absorb into my skin but it has made me break out every time and the smell is the biggest turn off, i have stopped using it because of the smell.
So good!!Amazing facial oil! This hydrates my dry skin so well and actually works better than any other serum I have tried. It soaks in easily and looks great under makeup.
Light texture and good valueI was surprised by all the negative reviews about the scent - I really like it! This oil has quite a light texture and a small amount spreads easily over the face without leaving greasy residue. It's refreshing and hydrating. The packaging is lovely and it is a very generous size for the price.
Skin RevivalAfter using this oil for several weeks as part of my normal skincare routine I have definitely noticed a difference in the balance of oiliness within my skin. The breakouts that was getting have decreased and my skin isn't feeling that horrible winter tightness that it has been lately.
Prefer it in the miniI received the mini size of this facial oil as a gift with purchase and liked it so much I went and bought the full size. Unfortunately I've been disappointed by it. The feel of the product is still good but the smell is totally different! Whilst I really liked the scent of this oil in the mini sized bottle (very sensual) the smell of it in the larger bottle is a real turn-off for me. I've also broken out around my chin whilst using it so I've stopped using it on my face. I've been applying it around other parts of the body (legs and elbows) but won't be purchasing again once the bottle runs out. I think the mermaids have deserted me!
Oriental / Herbal scent facial oilPersonally, I love the scent although some other reviewers might differ. This dry oil hydrates and plumps my skin without the sticky/oily feeling, absorbs really well too. I would recommend to warm up the oil in your palms (gently) and then pat onto the skin (don't swipe as it might 'ball up' when combined with other products)
HydratingThis is a great oil, hydrating and soaks right into your skin. Friends have commented on my glowing skin.
Deeply hydrating with a gorgeous scentI received a free tester of the mermaid oil, before purchasing the full size. You only need about 3 drops for your whole face. It's deeply hydrating, leaves skin soft and can be worn under makeup for a beautiful non-oily glow! The scent is divine!
If you're an oil lover, this prod is averageI recently purchased this oil and I must say it's actually so average. Firstly the packaging was broken when I received it - the little dropper was off to one side. Secondly, it can't be worn with some actives as it pills. So I can't wear it in the morning with my vit c serum. Thirdly, it doesn't absorb into my skin as well as other oils on the market. For the price point, I honestly think you're just paying for the pretty packaging. Nothing spesh and there are MANY cheaper and niced oils kicking around. Don't waste your time
MoisturisingI received this product as a gift with one of my purchases. My face was really dry and oily before using this facial oil but from the first application I felt my face was less oily throughout the day and remained moisturised. I also feel like my face is softer after a few uses. It is also absorbed quickly by the skin so would recommend.
Do itGot a free trial size of this product and then immediately purchased the full size!
I apply at night, and wake up with soft, clear skin.
I have oily skin and so far so good with no breakouts.
Many people have said the smell is off-putting... and whilst it’s not floral or amazing, it is kinda comforting. It reminds me of ointments my Nanna used and in my opinion the smell makes me feel like it’s made from ingredients that are actually doing something. A previous reviewer referred to it as smelling like ‘mermaid’ which I feel is spot on.
Loving it so far!
Worth the try!I should say that this oil is perfect for the face roller. Not oily or sticky on your face. Plus it didn't clog my pores not giving me any breakouts. Love it!
Gorgeous affordable oilI initially bought this because its such a gorgeous looking bottle and i wanted to spoil myself. I love using oils on my combo skin, especially in winter, so i don't have to change up my foundation or day-t-day moisturizer and i have used oils that are 2X the price of this and this is just as good! I use maybe before bed because i like to allow enough time for it to sink in or on make up free days. It leaves the skin very hydrated and calm looking
Favorite face oil with all the good stuffAmazing oil !
I was getting a combination of severe acné and extremely dry skin with the cold winter weather. My naturopath recommended an organic oil from jojoba, rosehip or seabuckthorn.
I found the mermaid oil which has all the above and more and have fallen in love!
My acne and dry skin have since cleared.
The consistency is quite thick and therefore quite difficult to blend onto face, so I add a few drops to my moisturizer in the morning and a few drops to my Kiehls Midnight Recovery concentrate at night, works perfectly.
Healthy, hydrated skinI have sensitive and super dry skin and after using this for about 2 weeks, I noticed my skin was looking much healthier and hydrated. Super impressed, will be repurchasing.
Love itI am enjoying using this oil I have been using it for around 7 days and have not experienced any breakout (unlike with other oils) it feels very lightweight on the skin and my skin is less dry.
Would definitely recommend!
I love thisAwesome price for how great this is. Sinks right in and feels super luxurious. I love it!
This oil is thickI must admit I bought this because of the packaging/colour and my belief that there was no such thing as a bad facial oil but I’m pretty disappointed in this one. The smell is not for me, not sure how to describe it maybe botanical? But I don’t think in a good way personally, but I also don’t like the smell of rosehip oil or a lot of flowers so that may be just me. The texture though is sooooo thick, it has a similar viscosity to castor oil, which I didn’t enjoy putting on my face and scares me tbh.
The ingredients sound beautiful so may be beneficial to the skin but I couldn’t really find a way to use this. As a hair oil it is so sticky but actually seems to help define my naturally curly/frizzy hair but is expensive for that purpose. I may in future try mixing with my moisturiser to use it up.
My favourite new productsThis stuff smells amazing soaks straight in and doesn’t leave that oily feel and it’s all very natural.
Best facial oil I have usedI often fly and work away in a hot environment, leaving my skin pretty dehydrated at times. This facial oil works wonders for restoring moisture to my skin and absorbs quickly. You do not need much and is a bargain. I use it before my moisturiser and find my skin feels softer and my foundation sits much better. I use it day and night but for those who don’t suffer too much with dehydration, once a day would probably be enough.
BeautifulI love, love, love this facial oil. It's so light, yet so hydrating and it smells divine. I cannot recommend this highly enough, will definitely buy again.
A mermaid's dreamI feel like this is such a treat for my skin -- enjoying it very much! Feels lovely on and actually sinks in so my skin reaps the benefits. With some oils I just feel oily and still dry but this one actually feels like it is hydrating my skin asap.
Not for sensitive skinI wanted to love this so badly, but unfortunately the mermaid oil didn't react well with my skin.
My skin has recently become quite sensitive and when I bought this I had hoped it would help me sort my skin out. However I noticed that my skin was becoming more harsh around the jawline and less smooth overall.
I've read amazing reviews on this item so I am sure it works for some people, it just didn't work for me.
Love eye padsthis is one of my go too's. not too heavy and provides good hydration.
Lightweight & moisture richI am loving this product. Not sure why some reviewers stated that it smelt awful. I love the smell, it feels very lightweight on the skin and my skin is noticeably less dry in this winter chill. Would definitely recommend!
Pretty but stinkyI'm really glad I received a sample of this before buying because the smell is incredibly off-putting. It's such a shame because it's a great product and the packaging is gorgeous.
Glowing Skin!I purchased this along with the Star Dust serum and have been using both for a while now, and I can safely say that my skin looks as radiant as when I used higher end oils. I have also been getting a lot of compliments on how clear and glowing my skin looks! The oil is quite thick compared to others I have used, so a little goes a long way and you definitely have to wait a while for the product to sink in. It is very hydrating and applies seamlessly on top of makeup. I was sold by the natural ingredients and great selection of oils they used for this product! A good bang for your buck!
Love This!!I apply this of the night time and I wake up looking so clean skinned and feeling smooth as./ Takes away any redness and is really just a sensational face oil. No oily looking face either!!
Nice productI have received this as a gift and found it very cute. It is good facial oil, not greasy, absorb very well but the smell. It is bearable though if you think of all the good ingreadients in int.
Great valueSuper hydrating oil that leaves my skin supple without the heaviness of some other oils. Huge fan of the dropper for practical and hygiene reasons. Barely-there scent. Comparable to other facial oils that are at higher price point.
Smells like old ladyI was excited to try this product due to all the positive reviews. I love the bottle and admittedly it feel nice in my skin however the horrible scent of this oil makes it almost unusable. It smells like an old lady's overpowering fragrance. I even got some friends to smell it just to make sure. I regret buying this product.
Mermaid oilthis little beauty is so cute & smells amazing!
Glowing!A beautiful oil, makes my skin glow! So hydrating. Highly recommended.
Cute bottle and hydratingThis little gem is so cute! Cute packaging and great face oil!
Absorbs well on my skinI was given a sample of this beautiful smelling oil right at the perfect time. My skin is trying to cope with the weather getting colder and I've been having dry flaky skin come up, thankfully I got to try this out! It absorbs really well and does not leave an oily residue.
So cuteLove this feels amazing and comes in a pretty bottle
Miracle Oil!I only received a sample of this oil, but in just a few uses I felt my dehydrated skin get back to normal! I have combo-oily skin, so a lot of oils are a bit too heavy for me, but this one really revived my skin and made it feel balanced. Would definitely consider buying the full size, and interested in the other face oils this brand offers.
Light yet nourishingThis is a really nice product that hydrates without being heavy
Love this!Product smells nice and feels nice and light on my skin. I tend to have dryer skin during the changing seasons so got this to trial. Has worked like a charm
Amazing!I've always struggled with combination skin where I had a oily tzone but very dry patches on my cheeks. I was a bit skeptical given how oily it was on application however after a few minutes it sank right in. After a week of using it at night after cleansing and toning, I noticed my dry patches reduced significantly and overall texture improved. Price point is great as you only need a few drops so the bottle, although small, will last you awhile. The glass bottle is gorgeous and reusable. Will be purchasing again and definitely recommend!
Quite enjoy the productBefore I bought this product I saw lots of positive comments on the fragrance, however I didn't really like it and even found it odd. But I grew into it. It smells like grass and MERMAID, just like its beautiful green colour. In terms of the texture, I don't find it light at all, it feels exactly like OIL, not necessarily in a bad way though. It gives a healthy and a radiant boost, but it's heavy, so i wouldn't use this product if i'm going for a matte look. And my skin does feel smoother after a sleep with the oil on!!
My new favouriteThis is just devine, my new faviourite
Can’t live without!I have just bought my second bottle of this product and I am in love! I have used it all summer without my skin feeling oily at all. You need the tiniest amount and it leaves your skin feeling moisturized and glowing. Sits so well under any moisturizer I’ve tried too.
Undiscovered HG productI had to come back to write a second review - it's that good! In my first I commented that I had only used it short term to really leave a detailed review but it didn't cause breakouts and left skin dewy.
After using it for 2 months now, I can honestly say that this product has changed my skin for the better! I use it every 2nd or 3rd night and wake up in the morning to dewy, glowing skin that just looks healthy. I feel confident going out with nothing on my skin; that's how incredible this product is.
A small amount goes a long way so I have no doubt this bottle will last me up to 6 months or longer. Amazing product!
Lovely productEveryone’s skin is different. As an early 20’s woman I only have fine lines in my forehead usually caused from dehydration. This product really works for me, after applying I can drastically notice the lines diminish. Lovely scent, it’s almost like a spa expierence applying this product. Love it!
Nice and lightThe Mermaid Facial Oil has a light refreshing fragrance. The texture is quite light. I apply 3 drops onto my face and massage it in with my Salt By Hendrix Rose Quartz Roller. I have combination/dehydrated skin. I have an oily T-zone. It doesn't give my any breakouts. And my skin feels balance when I wake up the next day.
AverageThis oil is lovely and light - sinks in nicely but after a few weeks of use, I didn't notice much of a difference.
NiceGot this oil as a sample with the roller. It’s nice, and hasn’t caused me any problems but I also wouldn’t say it’s amazing. It’s quite nice and light and sinks in well, but I wouldn’t say that I can notice a difference in my skin after I’ve used it.
Love it!I had never heard of this brand before but purchased product on reading reviews, while a sceptic at first, l absolutely love it.
My skin feels plump and hydrated and as a bonus it is certainly value for money
Great for combination skin!I have combination skin and this oil softened the dry skin on my cheeks without making my T-zone super oily in the morning. It does have a distinct smell, if that is something that concens you. It seems to go away once the product is absorbed. I really like that it lists all the ingredients with their plain language names next to them, so you know exactly what is in it, which helps if you have any sensitivities or allergies. You only need to use a couple of drops, so it should last forever!
Nice serum, especially when used with rose quartz roller!I was gifted this along with their roller from a friend and it's been lovely! I can't comment as to the effects it promises as I've only used it short term. But I haven't had any breakouts and together my skin seems to be glowing.
Too heavy for meMade me breakout like a teenager ! I am in my 50’s with normal skin type and i use another brand facial oil regularly with no breakouts. I’m not prone to breakouts either. I didnt find this one featherlight at all and it left my face slightly greasy. It smells divine and the packaging is gorgeous but I cant use it. Even tried it on my neck resulting in pimples.
Love ItHave only used this twice but I really like it. I also got a sample that I gave to my housemate and she is going to buy some too. Chock a block full of all the good oils.. Very nourishing and moisturising.
Love It!This oil is so nice, ive tried a few oils and this one feels a lot more luxurious then the others, it leaves my skin super hydrated and reduces dull skin tone!
Love it!I’ve only just started using this & can already see some nice affects on my skin. It feels smoother & my overall complexion is lighter. The name is great & it smells beautiful
LovelyI do love a facial oil so this was a no brainer but I confess that the name is the clincher! Name aside, it's a beautiful oil that feels great to massage in to really add hydration and boost your skin's glow. Essential for an at home facial session. Very well priced.
love itlovely smelling lightweight oil that is easily absorbed and really helps dry skin
Beautiful productI bought this for a girlfriend who is 35. She was going on holiday skiing and said it helped her skin stay supple in the wind and snow. She is a convert now :)
Beautiful oilLet’s be honest...I bought this little gem for the look of it’s stunning glass bottle. But this oil is lovely. The smell is great and it isn’t an overly thick oil so goes on nicely and is quickly absorbed. I’ve only been using it for 2 weeks but my skin is looking very fresh and hydrated. Would purchase again.
Nice and lightNice and light moisturising oil. I have been using this on alternating nights to my medicated acne cream and find it has been really helpful is counteracting the dry irritated skin I usually get while on the medicated cream and doesn’t make me break out
BeautifulThis oil smells beautiful and is really substantial. Really hydrating and leaves your skin glowing, and i love the name!
Why should mermaids have it all?I'm a big fan of natural and organic skincare but some facial oils can be uber greasy – not Mermaid Oil! Love the scent and how lightweight it is, especially great for warmer weather no that we're moving into Spring/Summer. Comes in a glass bottle too so less plastic waste too. SAVE THE MERMAIDS!
Smells divine!This oil smells absolutely DIVINE! The packaging is the perfect addition to my bedside table... plus what a cute name. It feels super nourishing but also really lightweight. I like to use a lightweight oil like this mixed in with my illuminator as skin prep for a dewy, natural look, so it's also a great addition to my makeup bag.
I haven't used this for long so can't speak to the long-term benefits but my first impression is that it ticks a lot of my boxes when it comes to a facial oil.
Skin saviourI was drawn to one of SALT BY HENDRIX's more popular products in this Mermaid Facial Oil. The bottle is beautiful and eye catching so I like seeing it's prettiness every time I open my bathroom cabinet. Rest assured the oil is not the colour of the bottle, but rather, very similar to some of the all-rounder facial oils I've tried from other skincare brands. I make note that the natural fragrance of the product is quite botanical/herbacious due to its ingredients.
I've mostly used this mixed in with moisturiser, and after multiple uses of the product, I can vouch for it's lightweight, easily absorbed formulation. My skin felt quite hydrated though as I have combination/oily skin, I refrain from using this day but rather at night for a more hydrating treatment.
So light!I love a good facial oil but normally they are a strictly nighttime-only product.
Mermaid Oil is so light I sometimes use it in the morning - if I apply makeup afterwards I have to wait a bit longer than with regular moisturiser but this is so light and hydrating it's worth it.
The iridescent bottle is also super pretty - but the oil is not blue for anyone worried about that!
I've only used this a few times so I can't speak to long-term benefits but immediate results have been really good!
