Amazing oilthis leaves my skin looking softer and healthier
Not to keenI was nervous to buy this but after reading reviews I thought it give it ago well I'm pretty much disapointed in it I can't seem to get it right I either put to much on and very oily or not enough and skin still feels dry it has got a soft unpleasant smell but not over powering this product just wasn't for me
best face oil!i was a bit scared to try this oil because of the reviews were so mixed but my skin absolutely loves it! leaves my face feeling so soft and clear and not oily at all
Skin feels so goodverified purchaserHas become my go to oil/moisturiser. Really instantly plumps and hydrates the skin, I like to use on its own for the mornings when I am makeup free, or end my night routine with it. Love it
The ordinary skin care rangeHi, so I don’t use anything for my skin as I always have trouble finding the right products for my skin type. I have really dry dehydrated Flaky skin with also a lot of sensitivity and redness. What Products would you recommend for a complete skin regime?
Another great face oil from the ordinaryI’ve finally bought this. It is kind of green coloured oil which is first time to see and quite thick oil. The texture is not that smooth as squalane but it sits and sinks into the skin ok not too heavy. It hydrates and pumps my skin.
lovelyverified purchaserreally like mixing this in with my night cream and doesnt make my oily acne prone skin breakout
A stapelThis oil has become a stapel in my skincare routine. I use this every morning and it leaves my skin with a beautiful glow and dewy skin. So nourishing on my skin
Highly recommendverified purchaserI love this Oil I use it every morning and I have nearly finished my bottle and will most certaintly be buying another one to replace it. This oil is golden in colour and only need two drops to cover the whole face and neck. It lasts a long time and is very moisterising and leaves my skin feeling refreshed, hydrated and dewy.
Best facial oilLove this facial oil.
I was previously layering three different oils over each other, now it's easy to just apply this one in one layer.
It helps to revive my dry, aged-looking skin into plump and smooth.
It also hasn't caused any breakouts on my acne-prone skin.
Hydration GoodnessGreat oil very happy with purchase. I have oily skin so was always nervous about adding more oil (rookie) but this oil is doing wonders.
It does have a smell but it really isn't bad and after my second use I didn't even notice it.
New facemy new fave The Ordinary product. light weight oil that is so hydrating. Absorbs quickly and leaves my skin feeling well hydrated and glowy without an overly oily finish
Nice oilNice oil, really makes my skin look healthy and plump. I’m obsessed. Truly so happy with it.
Lifesaver!!About to purchase my 3rd bottle and honestly couldn't go without this. It was a lifesaver during winter and really helped my eczema flare ups calm down. The smell doesn't bother me at all and it sinks into the skin quickly so it doesn't feel greasy at all. I use it all over of my face and on eczema flare ups on my body. Currently trying to repair my skin barrier after a retinol mishap and its been...Read More
beautifulI was always a bit sceptical of facial oils but this one works a treat. It feels heavy but isn't...soaks in quickly. Makes my skin glow! Helps keep my skin moisturised. I use it a few times a week. I have dry mature skin.
Rich and silkyI love this oil, I use it as a body oil instead of on the face. It is quite rich so I think it would be too much for my already oily face. However will repurchase for the sole use of body moisterising
A+ for B Oilyou cannot go wrong with The Ordinary. Fèels quite "oily", but does what its supposed to do.
Love it !!love this oil, great all rounder, doesnt cause break out
great productlove this oil, great all rounder, doesnt cause break out
Love it !!Great product, skin has really improved after using The Ordinairy products for a month
Really good quality face oilThis is really nice quality for the price. Has a subtle natural smell which isn't too strong. This has worked really well for me to use as part of my night time routine. Helped my acne scars heal and all my dry patches are gone!
Nice oilIt seems nice enough.
I'm not sure if it makes much of a difference to my skin, but I do enjoy using it. It has a nice consistency. The smell isn't so bad.
Not sure I'd buy it again because I don't see any big results. But I'm happy to use it each day while I have it.
Amazing oil!Honestly tried this product and did not know what to expect. It’s such a lovely oil and sooo moisturising. Unlike some other ordinary products which tend to sit in the skin, this one worked really well with me. I also love the smell, it reminds me a lot of the ocean and I’m very exciting to buy my second bottle!
NiceThis is a lighter oil option that still delivers nice results with little risk of break outs (I experienced a few using borage oil). Best to apply at night or well in advance of going out because it does result in a ‘glazed doughnut’ look as noted by another reviewer. Obvious botanical smell on application, but I don’t mind it.
B oilThis makes my skin soft, plump and moisturised. I don't mind the smell but it has been beneficial
Not the best smellThis was great for being a really good moisturising product, but had an unpleasant smell, I could personally still use it but if your sensitive to smells you may not enjoy this product
Fairly light but super hydratingPurchased to go with my new Gua Sha. Ditched the Gua Sha but have kept using this.
Really light, no fragrance but my skin feels super hydrating.
Also used it as a oil cleanser, worked pretty well!
A really great oilEasy to use and no strong scent. This product has an oily texture and dissolved quite quickly. A slight smell ( almost a bit fishy) but this disappears quickly. A great oil. This whole range is amazing value for money. Make sure you google what products goes well together so you can set up a perfect regime.
super moisturing!I love the B Oil! I find it to be a very intense moisturiser, and I love that look of a glazed doughnut before bed. I don't have an issue with the smell, to me its very subtle and not at all offensive so don't let that deter you. I wouldn't use this product in the AM because its quite shiny and thick but perfect for the PM.
Great benefitsAwful 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.
Super hydratingMy 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.
Very nourishingThis 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 ...Read More
Nourishing oilGreat 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.
Lovely blended facial oilReally 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...Read More
Not for my skinMy 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.
Great for my combo skinI 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.
Very moisturing - Strong SmellThe 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...Read More
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!
Awful smellProbably 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!
My new holy grailLOVE 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
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!
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.
Nourishing & hydratingLove 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.
Great oilI 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.
Good support for dry skinUpon 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...Read More
Overall really liked thisI 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.
Nourishing oilI 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...Read More
Lovely and hydratingI 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.
Nice moisturising face oilI 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 ...Read More
One of the bestI 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!
AmazingI love the ingredients in this and my skin has been looking good and hydrated.
AmazingThis oil has helped improve my skin and is moisturising
Great anti aging productThis 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.
Ingredients look great but not enough for very dry skinUnfortunately 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...
Good product interesting smellI 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
Good for dry skinI 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.
GreatThis keeps my skin moisturised and my skin isnt dry anymore
Pretty goodGreat price for what you get.
Definitely natural as it isn’t the greatest smelling product.
Feels skin feeling hydrated but not to oily.
Best oil for my super dry skinI’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...Read More
Hydrating not too heavyLove 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.
FAVOURITE OILI HAVE USED MANY OILS AND THIS IS MY FAVOURITE.I HAVE MATURE DRY SKIN AND THIS IS JUST RIGHT FOR ME, NOT TOO HEAVY OR LIGHT.USED ALONE OR A DROP MIXED WITH OTHER PRODUCTS
Good oilI 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.
GreatMy skin can get very dry but this moisturises it. It is very lightweight and affordable. Will buy again
Good!I thought this was incredibly nice. My skin feels great, very pleased.
My skin eats this upI 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.
Not my favourite but still decentDon’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!
Good but smells weirdNice 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.
Light hydration, would recommend pairing with Marula oilNot 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.
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 fr...Read More
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...Read More
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 m...Read More
A good cheap alternativeI 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.
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,...Read More
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 ...Read More
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 ...Read More
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...Read More
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 b...Read More
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...Read More
