I started using The Ordinary on October the 14th 2019 and these products are by far the best thing my face has enjoyed. This oil leaves my face, neck and hands sooo soft it is crazy. I'm a 42 year old, going on 43 and HAD acne scars on my cheeks. NOTHING helped when it came to getting rid of them. I have done several rounds of microneedling and not even that helped with my scars. It wasn't until I started using the glycolic acid, azelaic product, niacinamide and this oil that I've seen these scars fade. Its crazy!! Not even a month and not only am I seeing my skin soften, I also haven't seen any acne anymore. Everything broke me out. It got to the point where I started making my own face wash. If I could post before and after pics I would. I actually took such pics to see for myself what the hype was all about and believe me it is noticeable. I rarely go out without makeup, because my face also had uneven tones, but now I feel confident enough to do so. Then the last time I used makeup I got compliments from all of my friends. My 14 year old said my makeup was POPPIN'!!! What? A compliment from a teenager? If anyone needs pics to see the difference for yourself just say so, I will be more than happy to provide the proof. Thanks Deciem, you guys have changed my life. A womans skin is everything and you boosted my self-esteem like you could not believe with the change your products did to mine.
Let me start out by saying I'm definitely comparing this to other rose oils I've used. I've been using this one for about 2 weeks. It does leave the skin supple. Its got a slightly weird smell, but you can't smell once it's on imo. But i don't like that it leaves my skin really oily. Again, comparing this to others I've used. The others would eventually absorb but this one just stay on top of the skin and when i wake up my skin is extremely oily. It doesn't cause breakouts or anything like that and again it does make your skin supple once it's washed off you can see that, but just don't care for your oiliness to get there. Maybe that's just me. Will continue to use, but not on a nightly basis. Maybe every other night and will probably go back to another rose oil once this one is out.

I put it on at night after I use my water based cleanser and it really helps to lock in moisture and I wake up to super smooth and refreshed skin. I will definitely be buying this product again and again!

i got this after seeing a video of rawbeautykristi raving about this and thought for the price why not try it. i'm about to buy my third bottle i'm so obsessed. i genuinely can tell a difference when i don't use this for a couple days. it has helped my hyper pigmentation from picking at my break outs when i was younger. and also helps me not break out as much. seriously a holy grail for me!
bellazteca from California
I use it right after my peel or mixed with vitamin a . I love it. It really moisturizes without breaking me out.
taylor p from maryland
to begin, i have combination skin. i had acne for years until birth control, now i just get hormonal breakouts on my chin around my period, but i scar easily. WHEN I TELL YOU I COULDN'T BELIEVE MY EYES???!!!!!!! i used this for the first time last night, i just woke up and my skin looks incredibly less inflamed! the scars look noticeably less red and my skin just looks overall even. i also use the ordinary niacinimide + alpha arbutin everyday, and the aha/bha weekly. :))

I have not used it long enough to notice a difference on my fine lines or blemishes. But I can say that my skin feel softer when I wake up in the morning. No breakouts as of yet! :)
Brittney from California
I have oily skin and I use this at night mixed with my moisturizer for an extra pampering. It leaves my skin nourished and plump in the morning, and doesn't break me out. I have also noticed a slight improvement in my acne scaring.
Amber from California
I use this product at night as the last step in my routine. There is a smell to it & once it's sinked into your skin for about half an hour, the smell disappears but idk if that's because I'm used to it. I do have an oily t zone & this does make my skin oily when applied but in the morning my skin has absorbed the moisture & doesn't break me out. I recommend this product but I won't be repurchasing. I appreciate the moisture but I didn't see any differences in my skin. It's a luxury product but not necessary, in my opinion. A serum + moisturizer is more than enough.

Love ❤️ this !!
Bella from Tennessee
My skin is kind of oily but I wanted to try this out for extra nourishment for my skin and I love it! I use it after my moisturizer before bed and my skin feels great in the morning. Doesn't clog my pores or break me out!
BXB from North Texas
I have oily skin and I'm usually a little worried about moisturizers clogging my pores. This oil is perfect, just a dime size amount and it covers my whole face. Sometimes I do just four drops in my palms to cover my hands too.
Chloe from Colorado
I was at Ulta one day and I saw it and it was the only one left on the shelf to I new I had to get it I used it the night I got it and I love it I smells great and I made my skin so soft but, I only use it at night because it makes my skin so oily. overall it's a 5 out of 5!!!!!!

Love how soft this makes my skin feel! I've been using this w/ the Hyaluronic Acid every night for about a month and my acne + acne scars are fading significantly!
Only issue is the top of the bottle would not stay on. It spilled everywhere and I lost 1/3 of the bottle, which was super disappointing.
Mary Beth from Springfield, Mo
Really wanted to love this and I'm sure it is a good product for some... just not for my skin type unfortunately. Had more break outs than ever before.
Becka from CA
I read reviews that this smelled, but mine was scentless. It was very thick when on, so a little goes a long way. Does cause some pilling, but only of fibers on your skin (not the actual skin). Would recommend using moisturizer either with (mixed) or afterwards, especially at night so that you don't get it everywhere. Also would recommend massaging your skin to really get this into it.
danieluh from denver
i have oily skin, but i this oil does not add on the oil production and my face wakes up nice and plump! i can feel my dark spots from old acne marks fade away and i love how good my skin feels when i wake up!! don't hesitate, feels great right after using the ordinary peel!
Nini from Michigan
Love it i use it on my eyes and add to other products to add moisture because i have oily skin and this is really sinks in without causing clogged pores
RosaY from San Diego
I was looking for good facial oil. I had read the good and the not so good reviews before buying it. Plus the price is excellent. I have been using this oil almost daily. I also use it with my Gua Sha tool. I like how my skin feels with this oil. Even though it is very oily, my skin absorbs it very well. I haven't had any skin problems with it. The bottle is easy to open and dispense. I keep it inside the box in a cold place. This oil has some scent, but it doesn't bother me. I believe my skin looks great!
Lex from Florida
I must say so far I've not been disappointed by the products I've tried from The Ordinary. I really love the squalene oil they have so I also wanted to try this one. It is amazing!! I incorporate this oil into my night time skin care routine as the last product I apply after a moisturizer and I wake up with hydrated, glowing skin. I highly recommend!!
Savikin from Walla Walla, Washington
I love this. This has become my go to skin care product. Leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated for my mature skin. Probably wouldn't recommend for acne prone skin types. Patting it on or mixing it with moisturizer helps.
Melissa from Palm Springs
I've read many reviews on this product and saw many people mentioning that it takes a while to sink in — it's true, it does but it is a product you use at night. My skin type is very oily and it feels uncomfortable at first but the morning results are amazing. Your face will feel super smooth and it will give you a natural glowy look. I absolutely love this product!
Barnaby'sMom from SoCal
I love using this oil at night. I don't use it daily, but on nights that I do, I wake up with glowing skin. I'm not sure how much it does for anti-aging, but my main skin care concerns are dryness and redness and this oil addresses both. I can't use this in the morning because it's too heavy for my face/takes forever to absorb. But my skin is like that with all oils. Also I have super sensitive skin with psoriasis so it's dry, flaky, red and oily when I don't use a good skincare routine. This oil doesn't flare up my skin and I'm fact, if I'm having an active psoriasis breakout, it calms my skin down.
Candice from Atlanta, GA
This has changed my skin. My skin is dry, prone to acne & sensitive. I've struggled with constant breakouts with dryness & flakiness but since using this I've noticed my skin is moisturized, less texture, no breakouts (except for the usual time of the month) & gradual lightening of old scars on my cheeks. If I have a current blemish or ingrown hair, I dot some on top and it is less angry and reduced in size the next day. I follow up with an oil free moisturizer in colder months but the oil alone is fine in spring and summer. Smell is noticeable in bottle but I use 3 drops for my face and neck and the smell is unnoticeable in seconds. Also great for more sensitive parts of my body.

Good buy for the price.
