Most Helpful Positive
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.

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.
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.
too heavy to layerthis 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 from the ordinary
great, but that smellThis 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 it is a heavier oil, but I could see it working as a night time oil or only a drop mixed in with moisturizer. For those with dry skin 3-5 drops underneath moisturizer is perfect. I’ll be buying this again as well as trying out other oils from the ordinary line.
GreatIts 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.
GreatA few drops in my moisturizer really helps to fight dry skin.
Not too greasy - moisturising and does what it saysI 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.
Perfect light oilThis 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!
Smells funky but feels good on my skinLike 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 my face feel really soft and moisturised.

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.
IncredibleI 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!!!
effective...but smellyI 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, which not everyone does.
B-eautiful!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 chin, if I do not use a primer, my foundation slips off in this area, however that is not enough to deter me. I use this product morning and night, and it is now a staple item for me.
Cannot fault it!
Quite moisturisingI 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 doesn't feel completely oil free but it minimal enough that I don't notice it being there. There is however a slight seaweed/planty scent to this though but it doesn't linger for long. I find that this product keeps my skin quite moisturised throughout the night too :))
Sooooo good!Life saving product of you have dry peeling skin like me! This is so so hydrating and such a great price too
Great Oil - strong smellI 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!
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. Great for dry elbows too!
The perfect oilThis 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!
My Skin Hasn't Looked BetterI'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 but I don't mind it. I think this is doing amazing things to my skin and I can't get enough. I feel so hydrated and lovely all day too!
Best Ordinary OilI'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!
A deeply hydrating yet light and quickly absorbed oilFirstly, 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 would be especially great for those with oily sin who need the nourishment of an oil serum. Highly recommend this fantastic all rounder oil serum!
