Most Helpful Positive

Love
Love using this product before bed when I’m feeling like I need hydration. I also like using this product mixed in with my foundation to give a glowy finish

Most Helpful Criticism

Not as good as Drunk Elephant :(
I was hoping this oil would be a cost-effective dupe for Drunk Elephant's Virgin Marula Oil. It's not bad, I like using it at night mixed in with my moisturiser, but I don't get the same glow as I do from the Drunk Elephant product - annoying, as the price difference is massive! A good product, and value for money, but it's not a replacement for DE unfortunately.

  2. A nice oil

    I wouldn't say this is extraordinary but I think it is good for it's price to maintain healthy skin
  3. For some extra TLC

    I decided to try this with TO Natural Moisturising Factors at night to add some extra nourishment to my skin (usually oily). I started using it every second day for a week and I noticed a few little bumps on my t-zone after, so I pulled back and now maybe use it once a week if I'm feeling a bit dehydrated. I always notice my skin looking a bit more bouncy and bright, and any fine lines are reduced. I think it's a great oil to have on hand and mixes in really well with moisturisers.
  4. Hydrating

    I’ve never used an oil on my face as I have combination skin but at night my face has been feeling like it needs a little extra so after reading the reviews I purchased this, I love it! Actually pretty light weight and soaks in easily. Honestly I find it works better alone with no serum underneath or moisturiser on top - so I do this a couple times a week
  5. Love

    Love using this product before bed when I’m feeling like I need hydration. I also like using this product mixed in with my foundation to give a glowy finish
  6. Favourite Oil

    I’ve used 5 bottles of this stuff. It’s a great price point compared to the Drunk Elephant Marula oil, which is something crazy like 5 times the price or something. Beyond the benefits (look it up) it’s super hydrating, calming, and light. I use 3-4 drops all over my face after my serums every night without fail. A bottle lasts me 3 to 4 months depending. I’ve used rosehip oil before but it didn’t impress me (much).

    I’ve recommended it to my sister who lives across the world in a totally different climate and she and her boyfriend really love it too. I highly recommend you try. At this price point you can’t lose!
  7. Very nourishing

    A little goes a long way. This has made my skin feel smoother than it’s felt in a while. I use this at the end of my routine to lock everything in and add moisture to my skin. I was originally worried it would be too much for my skin as it can get oily, but it left it nourished without an excessive amount of shine
  8. Can’t lose

    I was recommended the Marula oil from DE to treat my dry skin. I tried it for a few days until I can across this baby. So much cheaper for the same product. At this price point why wouldn’t you try it?

    It definitely helped my dry skin, but as I suffer from irritation too I’m currently looking at purchasing another facial oil by TO.
  9. Great for sensitive and dry skin

    Love this product! I've used Drunk Elephant previously (which is a beautiful oil) but I can't justify the price tag anymore, so I tried this as an alternative. I found its comparable to DE (maybe a tiny bit thicker?), so I'll be buying it again for sure. I've noticed my skin stays hydrated longer if I put this on after my night cream. Also, if my skin has reacted to something, this is one of the only products I can use during a "sensitive episode" without further irritating my skin.
  10. Absorbable and hydrating

    I have combination skin and get quite a lot of cystic acne around my chin with some scaring/pigmentation. This product has been amazing for me, I highly recommend it to everyone. It doesn't clog my pores or feel heavy (like I find Rosehip oil does), absorbs really well so I can wear it day or night and not look shiny, is super hydrating and has helped to significantly reduce my cystic acne and scaring (along with The Drunk Elephant TLC Glycolic night serum). I've compared The Ordinary's Marula oil to The Drunk Elephant and I don't find a big difference between the two, only the $100 price difference. RECOMMEND!!!
  11. My favourite facial oil

    This stuff is like liquid gold. Marula oil is my favourite facial oil and you can't beat the price and quality of this one. I used to use rosehip oil but found it can turn rancid and smelly fairly quickly and I'd have to throw it out. I've had this bottle for 9 months now and it's still perfect and it has no scent to it at all. As always , the packaging design is perfect. I love the minimal design of all the ordinary packaging. I don't use this oil every day as I use The Ordinary moisturiser day and night, but when my skin feels particularly dry I put this on at night (3 drops for face and neck) and wake up to the most hydrated and glowy skin ever. It doesn't sink in right away but it doesn't feel uncomfortable either. I also use this on the back of my hands. It really feels like I am healing my skin every time I use this. It doesn't make me break out or clog my skin either. I will forever repurchase this oil.
  12. Love it and can't beat the price

    I've been using this for several months now. It was especially great in the winter, but I still use it occasionally in summer. It was my first foray into using oils and am very happy with the results. I have normal skin and use about 5-6 drops at night on my face and neck, or apply a few drops mixed in with my moisturiser. My skin always glows a bit more in the morning after applying the night before.
  13. Love it - Perfect for dry skin

    I have always suffered dry skin on my face and eczema, this is perfect for keeping it hydrating each night,
  14. good oil

    i like this as a basic oil to lather on.
  15. SAY YES TO OIL

    I was so hesitate to put an oil on my skin, especially since I am prone to breakouts. Oh.my.gosh I love this oil! A few drops in the morning after hyaluronic acid and my skin looks fresh, dewy and glowing! So good I’m the ends of your hair too! Can’t live without.
  16. Amazing!

    Beautiful product. If I'm too tired to do a full skincare routine I just use this and it is so soothing and nourishing. Rub any excess into ends of hair and my cracked af hands. My skin is super dry and foundation is very prone to cracking but using a bit of this underneath my hydrating primer has done wonders. Going to try mixing it in next to see how that goes. Love this stuff!
  17. Great Price/ Great Product

    I love this product!!!! I use it nightly on my face to lock in serums and other The Ordinary based layered products. Great price point for an organic oil and good for those with sensitive skin as its non comedogenic and high omega fatty acids.

  18. Great for oily skin and dewiness!

    Skin type: oily and large pores

    I was pondering over this product or the drunken elephant marula oil, which a friend had previously gifted me in the travel size and I loved it! Discovering marula oil was probably the best thing to happen this year! it does so much wonders for oily skin as it helps to control it rather than making it more oily. Trust me, I was skeptical at first too but try it out! I usually use it every second day an on top of my creams in the morning.

    After doing some research, I decided to give this one a try since the process for both products were the same and the result of the product was what I was interested in and I had already tried the DE version.

    So whats the difference? Honestly, not that much. To be honest, they both yield the same result, however I did notice that this marula oil is the slightest bit thicker than DE and therefore resulted in a bit more dewiness, which is what I prefer. If you don't have the $100+ to purchase the DE version, this one does the same thing and is almost 8 times cheaper.

  19. Fantastic

    I use a drop with most of my cream makeup applications. It really helps blend it out and it sits so well on your skin. I have dry skin, so this works for me. I always use setting powder when using this method.
  20. Added moisture

    I mix 2 drops of this with my moisturiser in the morning for a boost of moisture that doesnt leave my face too greasy. I always let it absorb for a about 5 mins before i apply my makeup.
    Wish it came in a pump bottle though instead of the dropper.
  21. Super nourishing

    I love love love this oil, super nourishing for my dry skin. I only moisturise with facial oils and this is a beautiful one!
  22. Beautiful Facial Oil

    This is a lovely marula oil, less is more when it comes to the amount you use so it is an incredible value. It has a silky texture, subtly natural scent, and nourishes my skin. Will definitely be repurchasing!
  23. Luxurious oil

    This feels very luxurious on your skin. I find it is too much for daytime use, but it's a great moisturising product for night time. The smell is nice and it sinks in at a moderate rate. The morning after using it I found my skin to be supple and hydrated.
  24. My Holy Grail Oil

    I cannot get enough of this product!! It has made such a difference to my skin. It was one of the first products I tried from the TO range, and I just LOVE it! I use morning and night, and my dry skin is now supple, soft and free of dry patches.
    In the AM I mix a few drops with TO Hyaluronic Acid + B5 and Ascorbic Acid powder. This gives enough moisture, followed by my SPF to forego my actual moisturiser during the day. In the PM I mix with my AHA serum and moisturiser. I've even used a small amount through the ends of my hair, and I love rubbing a bit over my arms and legs to liven things up! I always have a bottle spare so I never have to be without this holy grail oil!
  25. Nourishing

    Good for dry skin only, otherwise you will break out. Very nourishing.
  26. Went bad more quickly than expected

    Quite liked this as a night time moisturising product, to be used occasionally as I have oily skin. However, while the instructions from Adore Beauty said this product should be used within 12 months, I found within six months something had gone bad in the oil or perhaps weather had effected it, and it had little 'white' bits in there. Wasn't game to use it on my skin after that.
  27. Hydrating and sinks in quickly

    Probably my favourite out of the ordinary oils I’ve used so far. Moisturising, sinks in quite quickly and gives you a lovely glow.
  28. Not for me

    I'm a huge fan of The Ordinary, so thought I'd give this one a go. Doesn't suit my skin nearly as well as the Rosehip Oil. As a plus, it does make a good hair treatment!
  29. So lovely

    I love this oil. I use it in my nigh time routine before bed and add it to my moisturiser to give my skin some extra hydration, I also use a smaller amount during the day with moisturiser if I want glowy natural skin, or I add a little bit to my foundation to make it glowy. This oil is so hydrating but I love that it's not as thick as some others so it doesn't break my skin out. I have already re-purchased another bottle.
  30. Hydrating but thick

    I like this oil because it's hydrating but it feels rather heavy on my skin. I use it on my hair as well and it makes it shiny and looks healthier
  31. Nice

    I like this serum however it's a bit thick for my whole face so prefer rosehip. However, I love this to pat over my makeup to give a healthy dewy look and then I rub it through my hair!!
  32. Absolute gem

    I was so close to buying the DE Marula oil after trying a small sample of it. But before I committed to buying such a pricey product, I wanted to compare it with The Ordinary’s version. OMG I am so glad I did. I find their marula oil to be a slightly thinner consistency than DE’s, meaning it’s easier to spread and I’m using less product. I use this at night as the last step before my night cream, and my skin is SO soft the next morning. I can also see that redness and scarring are visibly reducing. The packaging is lovely and the price is incredible.
  33. light but hydrating

    really like this oil, it's light but hydrating and my face has a healthy glow after using it
  34. Versatile affordable oil

    I use this on my face and hair. I have sensitive skin so just add a few drops into my day cream. It's really great and versatile and super affordable
  35. Fantastic oil

    This oil is so light yet hydrating. I apply it every night under my night cream. I sometimes mix a few drops with my foundation for a more dewy hydrated look. One of the best oils i have used.

    I have tried a more expensive brand and this one is just as good. Will definitely buy again.
  36. Super absorbent

    I bought this product after seeing a recommendation on a youtube video from a beauty blogger. It's now my favourite oil! I used to use Face Hero by Go To, but I feel this does a very similar job for a fraction of the price! I also used to use rosehip oil, but not a fan of the smell. This one feels light weight on my skin, doesn't have an overpowering scent and absorbs fast. I use this day and night.
  37. Great versatile oil

    I have sensitive skin and only put a drop of this on my face when needed. It's great, affordable and I actually use it on my body and on my hair. Very versatile product
  38. Hydrating oil

    I love this stuff so much! It's light, fast absorbing and hydrating! I use it on my face as a final step, the ends of my hair and my body!
  39. Great for a natural glow

    I mix 2-3 drops of this into my Matrixyl by The Ordinary and my face has a really nice natural glow to it but be careful not to use too much! It definitely soaks in and absorbs well but doesn't feel great if you use too much
  40. Great with a light moisturiser

    This is a must have in winter!! I mix this oil with a facial cream at the end of my skincare routine. When I wake up my skin is still extremely moisturised which is great in winter.
  41. Fantastic for coarse frizzy hair!

    I have a cupboard full of hair products as I am always on the hunt for that elusive product that will tame my coarse, frizzy hair. I think I've tried most things but this product has been the most wonderful surprise for my hair. I apply a couple of drops to the ends of my hair after styling or air drying and it works wonders. It makes my hair less fluffy and frizzy and adds smoothness and a little bit of definition. It may be too much if you have fine hair but for my hair it is a godsend. I haven't tried it on my skin yet but if it works as well as it does on my hair it will be a great dual purpose product.
  42. Saved my dry skin

    I'm in my veeery late 20's so less prone to acne, but rosehip oil always seemed to break me out while squalene is too light and left my skin flaky. This oil has been a godsend, I'm on my 4th bottle now. I don't know if it actually makes skin "glow" but it certainly feels like it after finally being properly moisturised, would recommend to anyone with skin on the drier side.
  43. Wasn't for me!

    Used this product on my dry skin and I woke up the next day with a rash/pimples. Wasn't suited to my skin. So I tried it on my hair as this was also suggested, but it left my hair oily and I had to wash it again!
    Not me for unfortunately, but I love many of the other The Ordinary products!
  44. Glowing skin

    Great use at night and works amazing on my face.
  45. Wonderful

    I have very fair skin, prone to dryness and fine lines. I'm currently using Luna oil and found the retinol was drying our my skin, after incorporating the Marula oil in my routine my skin is not only soft and moisturised but I'm also seeing more of the impact of my retinol product.

    For my skin Marula oil is better absorbed and has better results than Rosehip oil. Will def buy again. Very reasonably priced and a little goes a long way.
  46. Soft hair

    I was recommended Marula oil for my curly hair, but haven't been able to find one that is made by a sustainable company until now and my hair has never felt softer!
  47. glowing skin

    I hadn't used oils on my face before but after using this product I will definitely keep them in my skin routine! I use this before bed after cleansing/ serums and i wake up with super soft skin. It's not a heavy oil so I also use it during the day if I'm not wearing makeup for a dewy look. I don't use it for my hair because it doesn't spread out evenly and makes my hair look greasy.
  48. Really good oil

    I use this in the evenings after a cleanse and before my moisturiser it does not feel too heavy at all
  49. Use it daily

    I’ve switched to this after using TO Rosehip oil for a while. This is much lighter and feels better on the skin. I use it in the morning on a cleansed face, followed by TO moisturiser. My skin is clear and happy!
  50. Good oil

    This oil is nice - it’s hydrating, not too greasy and sits well over serum / under moisturiser. I also use this on the ends of my very long, dry hair in winter.
  51. Great alternative for a more expensive branded product

    This is a great price for the more expensive options out there. The oil is nice and is absorbed into the skin nicely. I use it on days when my skin is particularly dry.
  52. Didn't love it

    I have combination skin.. and it really didn't like this product! I purchased after running out of the plant derived squalane - but it just made my skin congested and oily. It's quite a thick oil and may be better suited to someone with dry skin.
  53. Great addition for hydrated skin!

    This was one of those products I'd bought without really knowing what it is, or having done research. I just wanted an oil or serum to go under my moisturizer!

    The oil itself is scentless and clear. It doesn't spread over the skin as easily as a serum, and takes a little longer to absorb. But my combination skin, which can be flaky, hasn't seen any dry patches since I've started using it! Overall, pretty happy with my purchase and I think this will become a staple in my night-care routine.
  54. Good Oil

    Like this oil but like a previous reviewer I mixed this with other oils to make my own blend. It's a good, basic marula oil - excellent value - but I needed more as my skin is mature and dry.
  55. Really good

    Im on my 3rd bottle now. I dont like using oils before, but when i tried the ordinary 100% cold-pressed virgin marula oil, my face feels really good and moisturized. I love this product. and so affordable.
  56. Loving it in my oil cocktail :)

    Made a custom blend of squalane, apricot kernel and added this lovely marula and I'M LOVING IT! Hitting all the high notes: fast absorbing and rich (like my usual blend of squalane and apricot kernel oils), but so much more lustrous and bright in the morning. Will be stocking up on more, and probably will try it alone to see how it fares.
  57. So worth it!

    This is my current favourite oil and I can't believe how inexpensive it is. I had always through that face oils were extremely expensive, seeing them be anywhere from 50-200 dollars. After trying so many different oils from kiehls, drunk elephant, aesop and sunday riley, none of them were worth the price to me. This however is so affordable and works so well! I mix 2 drops into my moisturiser morning and night and it words wonderfully to nourish my skin without breaking me out. Twice a week i will also mix it in with some coconut oil for a hair mask! Can't recommend this enough and for that price tag there's no reason not to try it out
  58. So-So

    After going through two bottles of DE Marula oil, I thought I'd give TO's Marula oil a shot as it's a third of the price. TO's Marula oil hydrated, but didn't leave my skin glowy and fresh like DE's. If you need a hydrating oil that does the job, this will suffice; however, if you're looking for a cheaper alternative to DE's Marula oil, you will be disappointed.
  59. Great product

    I have combination and sensitive skin and this is one of my favourite products from the ordinary. It hydrates my skin so well and doesn't break me out. I also love this so much because it is an exact dupe except much cheaper than other brands! Would definitely recommend especially at the price!
  60. I love this oil!

    I have previously used The Ordinary 100% Plant-Derived Squalane and found that my skin broke out, as I have combination/oily skin and still prone to break outs especially around my chin area. After researching oils, I found out about Marula oil and was excited when I saw that The Ordinary had it. I took a gamble and got it and am now onto ordering my second bottle - before I have finished my first! I really like this oil a lot. I blend it with my moisturiser and pat them onto my skin. My skin is a little shiny at first but it all sinks in well and my skin looks great in the morning. I love all the properties of this oil and have found it works well on my combo skin.
  61. love this

    this is a great face oil. it doesn't feel to heavy on skin, but it hydrates so well. it also leaves a nice glow when worn under makeup.
  62. Lovely oil

    This is so nice in winter, after serums & before my moisturiser. Absorbs into my skin & I now prefer it over any other facial oil
  63. Absolute winner!!

    This oil is amazing for so many reasons. I have mature normal skin and although I look after it there are times when a boost is needed.. this oil is that and more! I use at night over my regular skin care and also in the morning under makeup. It's so light and hydrating. I also have blonde hair which tends to be on the dry side and use a couple of drops of this every night, massaged into my scalp and on my hair, and in the first day noticed a difference in texture and volume. Used also on nails and any dry skin patches. Will never be without this oil or my The Ordinary matrixyl.. and to top it off it's so affordable.. absolute winner!!!
  64. Best Oil Ever!

    I am obsessed with this oil, it is so hydrating and working well to combat my oily skin. I apply this to my face, neck, nails, ends of my hair and dry heels and it has worked wonders on hydrating and strengthening all areas. I will definitely be repurchasing this oil.
  65. Simple hydrating oil and affordable!

    I have dehydated and dry skin. Put this in the morning before makeup helps my makeup to stay and look fresh longer. Put it before go to sleep and I woke up with smooth and hydrated skin. Will re purchase when I'm out of one for sure!

  66. Great for acne prone skin

    I've heard of the benefits of Marula oil and love The Ordinary so decided to give this a go.
    I have oily, acne prone skin with acne scars and put this on as my last step before I hop into bed. I let it sink in while I sleep and wake up with soft, hydrated skin. After a few months use, I've noticed such a difference in my acne scars - they are lightening and slowly disappearing!

    Marula Oil is also non comedogenic, so won;t break you out - yes gawd!
  67. Makes me breakout

    My skin type is normal to dry, and having read the glowing reports on this oil, decided to give it a go. I also purchased the Matrixyl by The Ordinary at the same time.

    Initially, I used them together, but noticed I was breaking out the day or so after use, and wasn't sure which one was causing the issue. So I stopped the Marula, and the problem went away. Reintroduced the Marula, and sure enough, the breakouts began thereafter.

    It does work beautifully if you add a few drops to your foundation to give a more dewy finish, especially to matte foundations. But even with this method, though I like how the foundations look, the breakouts are annoying. I am not going to give up on it quite yet.!
  68. Staple in my nighttime routine

    I like a simple nighttime routine. Since I started using this my routine has become even more simple. I cleanse and pat on Alpha-H liquid gold and follow it up with the Ordinary Marula Oil. When I wake up my skin is plump, hydrated and super smooth. Love this one!
  69. Daily Use

    I’m onto my 2nd bottle of this good stuff and will be continually buying it until forever especially because of the price. I have dehydrated/dry skin and this helps with that problem a lot. I mix this oil in with my foundation when I wear makeup which is the only other time I use besides every night.
  70. very versatile

    a very light oil i use in 2 ways after washing my hair apply a small amount ( not to much) you only need a little my hair looked like it had been professionally straightened no frizzy bits sticking up , and i find i have a lot less flaking all in all a very handy little oil
  71. FABULOUS

    I use this after I have used another of The Ordinary products before I go to bed. It’s just one of 4 that I own and will continue to use my skin feels Ah-mazing......
  72. Heavenly for hair

    I like using this on my face on top of a moisturizer when my skin is feeling extra dry and it provides wonderful benefits to replenish the skin. I also use this straight out of the shower on damp hair and it reduces the amount of frizz that I get and makes my curly/wavy hair more defined! I have noticed that the new curls growing from my scalp are a lot more shiny, healthy and hydrated and I believe that it's because I'm using this oil to support my hair growth! Keep in mind, a little goes a REALLY long way.
  73. Great product (but not quite the right oil for me)

    I have combination skin tending towards the oily side. I've used various oils in place of face moisturiser for years and am always excited to try new ones. I tried this oil on a recommendation. The oil is nice, smooth and lightweight, however I find that my skin does not absorb it as quite as well as it absorbs a combination jojobah and rosehip oil I have previously used.

    In short: I like the product, but am not in love with it.
  74. Affordable oil

    I wanted to try this as a more affordable alternative to the Drunk Elephant Marula Oil, as I had heard many great things. I don't really have a basis for comparison, but this oil is unscented, and not too heavy. I usually use 1-2 drops only in my palm to warm it up and pat it into my face. My face looks glowy and feels hydrated. I think this would be great for winter, regardless, I've been using it in summer and I still love it. I can't really use this in the day as much because my skin type is combination, but it's perfect for night time, or if you have drier skin
  75. Not oily and absorbs well

    I thought this would be an oily day time moisturisers but it absorbs really well into the skin. I'm quite impressed for that price tag compared to a more famous brand.
  76. Great alternative to DE's Marula Oil

    I have normal/dry skin but I hate the feel of heavy oils on my skin.
    The Ordinary's Marula Oil is absorbed very quickly by the skin and I can feel its hydrating properties almost immediately.
    I have tried a very expensive alternative of 100% Marula Oil and whilst it was ever so slightly lighter, at a 500% cost difference - The Ordinary's Marula Oil is just as effective and way easier on the wallet.
    Highly recommended.
  77. Heavy moisturisation

    I have very oily skin and only use this at night time. It's far too heavy for me to use in the morning, and I can only use a couple of drops lightly patted into my skin. It has helped the small dry patches I do have around my eyes and the sides of my nose. After putting it on one night my husband said I was "glowing"! I fear due to the greasiness more than anything!

    I've used the 100% Squalane as well, and find this a lot heavier. I am persisting with it though, as I use the .2% retinol in Squalane on alternating nights and feel the moisturisation is probably important in assisting with minor irritation.
  78. Very Happy

    I did some research on which oils would be good for skin and Marula Oil came up as a really good option as I have been wanting to find a more natural skincare routine. I also did research into which brand to get and The ordinary brand seemed to be the way to go, with it being 100% Marula oil and being cold-pressed which means it retains a lot of the goodness of the oil. The Drunk Elephant brand was another popular one but there was a huge price difference and other peoples reviews sad they couldn´t tell the difference between the two. I have been very happy with The Ordinary Marula Oil, I've been using it on my face night and morning for about 6 months. Its been very hydrating on my dry skin which has been good. I also have very sensitive skin and prone to breakouts, but this oil felt light and absorbed in my skin without leaving my face feeling oily and I haven't had any breakouts, my skin has been so soft and the best its ever been! For the price, how long it lasts and the results, I´m very happy with this product and will continue to buy it, also from Adorebeauty as they have the best price and have it available and for a good price since it is hard to find anywhere else.
  79. Will definitely repurchase

    I have fair, over 40 pale skin. Prone to dryness.

    I use this oil at night as final top coat after my other serums and moisturiser has absorbed.

    This very hydrating and I wake up feeling dewy and fresh. Have not tried to use this during the day as some others have commented, but i think I might try a few drops under make up soon!
  80. Amazing -even on oily skin.

    I put this on every morning as my first hydrating step. It is wonderful. Sits beautifully under makeup.
    This is a very lightweight, but very hydrating. It makes your skin glow, it is amazing. I even think it helps maje me less oily throughout the day. Not sure how that works, but that is my impression.
    This works well with anything I put on top, and I haven't stopped using it even in summer. Amazing, highly recommend for every skin type.
  81. Brilliant!

    To say I love this product is an understatement. I purchased a few weeks ago after some reading about the benefits of Marula Oil. I was skeptical at first due to the price point, and reached for Drunk Elephant but after reading the other reviews I decided to give it a go, and am THRILLED! I use this after my serum of a night, and before my foundation of a morning. I find it absorbs quickly and doesn't leave my skin with an oily residue, rather I am left with a glowing dewy look. Its incredibly hydrating a calming. I suffer from extremely sensitive skin (to the point where I am yet to find a moisturiser I can use) and this seems to calm my redness without leaving me with any rashes. Its fantastic girls!


  82. Love it, why pay more!

    I'm loving this. I purchased it a few weeks ago after running out of a much more expensive marula oil.
    I use it at night after the ordinary niacinamide. Instead of rubbing it in I put some on my fingertips and pat it around - this stops the niacinamide from becoming clumpy and peeling underneath. In the morning my face is much more plump and calm than when using the niacinamide alone. I have very sensitive skin, prone to redness and breakouts. no issues with this at all, it doesn't clog pores or cause delayed rashes for me.
  83. 4.5 stars

    When I saw the price of this oil, I thought; "for sure it's an inferior and heavily diluted product". Once I ran out of my $100 bottle of Marula oil, I decided to quickly purchase this bottle since I was already buying other products online, thinking that if this was indeed inferior to my The Drunk Elephant oil, I could just easily switch back again. Well... I'm never going back to paying $100 for marula oil anymore...
    Admittedly, the application and absorption of this product isn't as elegant and luxurious as TDE's oil, but the overall results are the same. Really, if your wallet isn't ready to pay TDE's prices and you can sacrifice the expensive packaging and faster absorbsion; then this oil is a fabulous and a much cheaper alternative.
  84. Amazing price!

    I have paid over $100 for a cult brands marula oil and The Ordinary Cold Pressed Marula oil is so much more affordable and does exactly the same thing. I use this oil as the final step in my nightly routine, after all serums and creams, I press a few drops around my face and neck. I find it super hydrating and it creates a barrier for all the stuff I have put on before hand. I have oily skin yet I wake up super fresh and glowy. It doesn't clog my pores and I'm super happy with this find.
