Most Helpful Positive

Very nourishing


This product is extremely nourishing and absorbs into my skin quite fast. It has a smell to it, but it's quite nice and at first the green tint of the oil made me think it would leave a tint on my skin but it doesn't.
I use it in the AM and my skin glows throughout the day. I've been using it for months now and my skin feels supple, and look glossy. I recommend this product for everyone, it has so many benefits with the ingredient list, and it's very easy to use with other products.

Most Helpful Criticism

Awful smell


Probably wouldn’t buy again, perfectly nice facial oil however I just couldn’t get past the unpleasant smell so didn’t use long enough to see any difference!
  1. Great benefits


    Awful smell that sort of grows on you because it has amazing benefits and improves you skin after one application. Great to use on face and limbs. My arms have not looked so good in years.
  2. Super hydrating


    My skin just drinks this up and is so soft after. I use only 4 drops at night all over face and neck, let it soak in fully before going to bed and by morning my skin is amazingly soft. I'm hoping continual use will address some pigmentation issues and prevent the odd pimple popping up. Not sure if its better than The Ordinary's Squalane but definitely on par.

  4. Nourishing oil


    Great blend of ingredients! I use this both in the day and at night time to ensure my face is well nourished and hydrated, as well as protected from free radicals. It is not too oily for my dry/dehydrated skin. No funky smell in my bottle of goodness like what others have said.
  5. Lovely blended facial oil


    verified purchaser
    Really lovely facial oil. I have combination/acne prone/mature/sensitive skin and my skin loved this oil. I use it nightly after retinol (I use around 8-10 drops for face, neck and chest, which is more than recommended) and leave it for 10 mins to soak into my skin before I sleep. I always wake up with soft, supple skin. As someone who doesn't like scented facial products, the smell of this di...

  6. Not for my skin


    My normal-oily skin was not a fan of this product. I found it sat on my face and never absorbed despite endless attempts at rolling it in with my skin roller. I made use of it anyway and apply it to my lips after exfoliation and when they are dry.

    I didn't find the products smell offensive at all - it's a bit different but nothing that would stop me using the oil.
  7. Great for my combo skin


    I have combo skin and have usually steered clear of oils, but this one is GREAT. Sinks straight in so that is good, but it also leaves you with a nice little oily glow which I love. Feels really nourishing. I wait a little bit and then apply a gel based moisturiser which I didn't think would work after an oil but it works just fine.
  8. Very moisturing - Strong Smell


    verified purchaser
    The oil is very nourishing. Soaks well into the skin within 10 minutes. However I found the smell quite strong and can still smell it after 30 minutes of applications. I originally purchased this, to eliminate the use of my moisturiser. However I have seen recommendations to use a moisturiser after this and that may reduce the impact of the strong smell. The strong smell has been off-putting for m...

  9. Feels nourishing as soon as applied!


    I have sensitive and relatively dry skin & this oil instantly feel more luminous. I use it of a night and it sinks in prior to sleep - doesn't feel residue-y or overly oily like some products. It does smell a little strange but nothing too bad!
  10. Awful smell


    Probably wouldn’t buy again, perfectly nice facial oil however I just couldn’t get past the unpleasant smell so didn’t use long enough to see any difference!
  11. My new holy grail


    LOVE this so much. I add it in with my moisturiser at night, sometimes add a drop directly to the face just before bed and I wake up so smooth, bright, and plump. Love it!! Doesn’t leave me feeling gross and oily, just nicely hydrated
  12. A skin saviour!


    This oil will calm even the angriest skin. If I have ever accidentally gone out without my SPF or gone a little too hard on a retinol this serum brings my skin back to life!
  13. excellent quality at a fantastic price!


    I love this oil! - but I have to use it in the PM before bed as it is just too oily and takes a little bit too long to soak in to be able to use it in the morning.
  14. Nourishing & hydrating


    Love this as a last step in my night time skincare regime. It's super nourishing and hydrating (I guess from the squalane?) and will be a staple in my routine as the weather cools down. Big thumbs up.
  15. Great oil


    I bought this to try over rose hip oil and found it very similar. Great oil that soaks in well and help dry skin straight away. After using it for a few months I think I find the rose hip oil slightly better. The B oil would be better for people who prefer a slightly less oily product.
  16. Good support for dry skin


    Upon first application I was a bit taken back by the smell of this product, this smells a little 'fishy' almost like a seaweed smell. I didn't know how I was going to get through the whole bottle but decided to bear with it for a couple more nights. After using it for a week I noticed that my skin was much more hydrated and supple despite sleeping with the heater on. If you need extra hydration th...

  17. Overall really liked this


    I overall really liked this. It took a little bit of time to soak in but it is worth it for the soft hydrated smoother skin.
  18. Nourishing oil


    I have used TO products for over 18months now but love to experiment with their products and try new ones. I’ve used Marula, Aragan and Squalane (my up til now fav). After purchasing this and niacinamide both for the first time I can honestly say my skin has never been better. It’s usually patchy from my retin a treatments twice weekly but this has totally nourished my mug! Smells a bit fishy for...

  19. Lovely and hydrating


    I wanted the benefits of the combination of oils in the product to help maintain my skin's hydration levels and help with sensitivity. I've been using it with the Modulating Glucosides from NIOD and just love the combo. My skin feels like baby skin.
  20. Nice moisturising face oil


    I have quite oily skin with the occasional breakout, some light sunspots/uneven tone, and some fine lines around my eyes and forehead. I was looking for a product to help with hydration over winter, and already use a number of The Ordinary's products. The texture of this face oil is definitely quite oily, and it lost a star because it takes a long time to soak in - had to apply a while before bed ...

  21. One of the best


    I bought a few products from this range and decided that this is my favourite! I mix it with The ordinary moisturiser and it really helps to hydrate and rejuvenate my skin. If you try anything from this range, this is definitely one of them!
  22. Amazing


    I love the ingredients in this and my skin has been looking good and hydrated.
  23. Amazing


    This oil has helped improve my skin and is moisturising
  24. Great anti aging product


    This is the first time i have used a Niacinamide serum and have had wonderful results after only a few days. The price is incredible value for money for such a high quality product. Will repurchase again in larger size however it still goes a long way.
  25. Ingredients look great but not enough for very dry skin


    Unfortunately I gave it to a friend with oiler skin, I will stick to marula oil. I really wanted to love this as it's got so many good things in it (I didn't mind the smell at all either) but I think the base must be largely squalene as it just wasn't thick enough for me and left my skin feeling tight...
  26. Good product interesting smell


    I think its a good product but as someone who is very sensitive to smells and prefers neutral smelling products it has quite a full on smell
  27. Good for dry skin


    I use this instead of a mask every week or apply over my moisturiser if my skin feels extra dry. Has a slight smell to it, but once it is on the face it isn't too bad. It looks quite thick but soaks in very well. Seems to have all the good stuff in it.
  28. Great


    This keeps my skin moisturised and my skin isnt dry anymore
  29. Pretty good


    Great price for what you get.
    Definitely natural as it isn’t the greatest smelling product.
    Feels skin feeling hydrated but not to oily.
  30. Best oil for my super dry skin


    I’ve got very dry skin with eczema on my face but I only use this during the night as it looks a bit greasy on me even though I only use two drops on my face and one drop on my neck. I’ve only been using it for five days especially over the eczema on my face which has been reduced to almost normal skin already! I’ve started putting it on the eczematous patches all over my legs and I am just astoun...

  31. Hydrating not too heavy


    Love this oil - I have combination skin and am prone to stress and hormonal breakouts. I use about 4-5 drops in my morning routing, never leaves my skin feeling oily or greasy. Smell isn't anything amazing but doesn't bother me.


  33. Good oil


    I love this oil, I have combo skin, and this oil absorbs quickly into my skin, I'm heavy handed, but it never leaves my skin greasy. I love that it has the added benefit of antioxidants, it doesn't really smell of fish, more like linseed oil, anyway that isn't noticeable after a minute or two.
  34. Great


    My skin can get very dry but this moisturises it. It is very lightweight and affordable. Will buy again
  35. Good!


    I thought this was incredibly nice. My skin feels great, very pleased.
  36. My skin eats this up


    I have oily skin but I like to keep it moisturised. I mix this in with my TO Natural Moisturising Factor moisturiser and my skin eats it up. I also look glowing in the morning. I also put the oil on my tattoos in the morning to brighten them up. I don't notice a smell from it either.
  37. Not my favourite but still decent


    Don’t find this overly moisturising but is great paired with moisturiser or thicker oils. Probably wouldn’t buy it again but will finish the bottle!
  38. Good but smells weird


    Nice reliable light oil, easily absorbed. In addition to using it on my face I also put a lil on my split ends, I have to say though... it smells kinda fishy.
  39. Light hydration, would recommend pairing with Marula oil


    Not a fan of the smell but this is a great to pair/alternate with Marula oil. Really good for the price but wouldn’t recommend if you’re pretty dry. Sits well under makeup and provides light hydration.
  40. A good light facial oil.


    Previously I have been using Rose Hip oil as part of my skin care regimen morning and night, but I have replaced the Rose hip oil in the morning for this “B” oil as it is lighter and easier to absorb. I like it, the smell is subtle and I feel it gives a good base for make up too as I wear mainly powders.
  41. too heavy to layer


    this B is too heavy for my skin routine

    i fully understand its an oil but it really is so dense i feel nothing would ever penetrate it i like a lighter B to use more at the start of my routine

    there are so many more oils that have more benefits than a straight B oil

    i don’t recommend it
    i have mature skin

    love alot of other products fr...

  42. great, but that smell


    This definitely smells a little funky, so if you’re not okay with very natural smelling skincare - beware. However, I’m willing to look past the smell (reminds me of flaxseed oil) because it is a very hydrating oil. I have super dry skin that sucks up anything you put on top of it and I only need 3 drops of this oil to get me through the day. If you have combo to oily skin you may not like this as...

  43. Great


    Its not my favorite, but I like it. The smell is not good, but it isn't bad either. But on my skin it feels like it doesn't fully absorb, and it makes it look kinda oily, but at least it doesn't leave the same feel.
  44. Great


    A few drops in my moisturizer really helps to fight dry skin.
  45. Not too greasy - moisturising and does what it says


    I have extremely dry skin which sucks up oils and still feels dry the next day.

    With this oil, my skin feels soft and supple even the next day I use it day and night with variations of The Ordinary's Vitamin C creams. My skin has started looking brighter and more glowy since I have started using the oil.
  46. Perfect light oil


    This oil is so light, I absolutely love it! My skin has been dry and patchy since I can remember, after a few weeks with this oil there’s no more patchy dry spots.
    I saw others say the smell was bad, I can’t smell anything offensive!
  47. Smells funky but feels good on my skin


    Like other reviews, I agree that this product has a "fishy" smell however it doesn't deter me from using it. I find that it doesn't really absorb into my skin and leaves it feeling quite greasy, so I only use it in the evening before going to bed. I have combination skin and I mainly put this product on the less oily areas on my face. I haven't had any breakouts since using this and it does make m...

  48. A good cheap alternative


    I like this oil but I don't love it. It has a bit of a smell, didnt absorb all that well into my skin each time I used it, and hasn't been as calming and hydrating for my skin as I wanted. Still a good oil if paired with a serum and moisturiser but probably won't buy again.
  49. Good texture, but...


    I’ve tried all the oils on offer from the ordinary. The texture/consistency of this is sublime, it sinks in like a dream. For me though it doesn’t work as an every night option- I have experienced breakouts very time i’ve Used it more than a few nights in a row. The borage oil is a safer option for me, but I still use this occasionally.i should add that my skin is very fussy and sensitive.
  50. Incredible


    I never used to wear oils as I found them too heavy on my skin, but this is absolutely incredible. It's lightweight and I can't believe I get excited to put an OIL on at night!! This is great for those wanting an introduction into oils. I actually love the scent and the COLOUR. So so gorgeous and absolutely moisturizing at an incredible price point. GET IT!!!
  51. effective...but smelly


    I think my sensitivity to the 'herbal' odor of this oil is tainted by a period when I was (unexpectedly) pregnant! I couldn't stand the smell of this, even though it was absolutely helping my eczema. Now I don't often use it, as it's quite heavy, and my memory of the smell keeps me away (but it is definitely not as offensive to me these days) it's a great oil blend if you like to incorporate oils,...

    The Ordinary's B Oil is B-eautiful.
    Honestly. You should just buy it.

    It is non greasy and absorbs into your skin beautifully.
    Despite my original thoughts that it would leave my skin too oily to apply foundation over the top - I find it leaves my skin nourished and hydrated, creating a better base for my foundation.

    I do find that in my oily areas such as my ...

  53. Quite moisturising


    I had recently finished my bottle of rosehip oil and decided to try out something different. For those who are afraid of facial oils and cant imagine how putting on more oil than their skin is producing will be of benefit or simply don't like the feeling on oil on the skin .. well you wont have that problem with this product. Although its an oil, it absorbs into the skin pretty rapidly, your skin ...

  54. Sooooo good!


    Life saving product of you have dry peeling skin like me! This is so so hydrating and such a great price too
  55. Great Oil - strong smell


    I do love this oil, it sinks into my skin quickly and really absorbs rather than sitting on the surface. It leaves no residue behind and is this funky green colour. However it does smell like fish. The scent goes away after maybe ten seconds but it is quite strong initially. Not enough to deter me though!
  56. changed my mind on oils!


    I was very hesitant to try this, as I do get oil around my t zone. But, after reading reviews and knowing intellectually about all the benefits of oils, I decided to take the plunge, and I'm glad I did! this does have a slight smell as mentioned by other reviewers, however with the amount that you're using it is hardly noticeable. This bottle will last me ages only using 2-3 drops 3-4 times a week...

  57. The perfect oil


    This oil feels very light and non-greasy, but at the same time feels very nourishing and moisturising on the skin. Pairs well with other skincare products and sits wonderfully under make-up. There's nothing I don't love about it!
  58. My Skin Hasn't Looked Better


    I'm only in my very early 20's but I've begun to develop deep smile lines because of how dry my skin is. I hadn't been using oils much up until getting this because I believed an oil I used before was clogging my pores, however since trying this my skin has been amazing!
    I wake up with soft, plump and hydrated skin. It soaks in so well, even over the top of other TO products. It smells odd b...

  59. Best Ordinary Oil


    I've tried a few ordinary products and I love this oil. It is hydrating enough for my very dry skin, but also light enough to mix or go under my moisturiser at night or makeup in the morning. Beautifully nourishing and not as heavy as other oils. I think it would be fantastic for oilier skin as well!
  60. A deeply hydrating yet light and quickly absorbed oil


    Firstly, let me say I love face oils. Melbourne is dry and working in an air conditioned office really takes the moisture out of my skin. I use an oil every morning and after cleansing before bed. B oil is amazing for daytime use. It is light, non greasy and absorbs very quickly. It is a light green coloured oil with a mild natural scent. It is very nourishing and sits wonderfully under makeup. It...
