    Comments about Skyn Iceland Arctic Face Oil:

    I've had very sensitive, red/inflamed, acne prone combo skin with a forehead that's gets gets ridiculously shiny since puberty. I've recently gotten with a dermatologist and been put on oral and topical medications. They've made my cheeks dry and irritated and my skin was flaking under my makeup. So I went to find a facial oil and this was the one I decided on because it gave the most product for a more reasonable price. I use this every night/ morning and let me tell you my skin looks sooooo much better. My redness has gone down drastically, it's improved my texture, and my skin no longer flakes. My forehead doesn't get as oily through out the day either. It pairs well alone and with moisturizer on top as well. Love love love this stuff and will definitely repurchase.

    Love it!

    By Jennifer D.

    Comments about Skyn Iceland Arctic Face Oil:

    I generally have very oily skin in the summer and dry combo skin in the winter. I am very acne prone and decided to try this because it's supposed to calm irritated skin. I can't say enough good things about this product because it keeps my skin hydrated and actually helps to control my oily skin. It's apparently true that oily skin is over compensating and when you use an oil based moisturizer it actually helps. It hasn't gotten rid of my acne but it doesn't cause me to break out and does actually calm the redness and acne that I have so it's not as noticeable. I would definitely recommend— don't be afraid to try it if you have oily skin.

    Best priced face oil

    By nicoleB

    from Folsom, ca

    Comments about Skyn Iceland Arctic Face Oil:

    This face oil is amazing! I recently bought it because my face was basically shedding like a snake because of all the harsh chemicals I use to clear my acne ridden face. Before this I was devoted to my Aveeno face lotion but it didn't work well with my foundation. I knew I needed extra moisturization but I didn't want to break out. This product is amazing with or with out make up. It has changed the way my face feels completely. My face used to feel rough and used be very uncomfortable. After just two days of using this oil my face has completely changed. I feel soft and smooth and my make up never cracks around my nose and mouth now. I love this product so much and I am so happy I didn't have to spend 80 dollars to get the results I was looking for.

      Comments about Skyn Iceland Arctic Face Oil:

      I love this oil. For the price, i got it in the winter rehab kit which is more bang for your buck. I used this a few times and couldn't believe the results.

      My face has become more clearer, it has given my face a natural healthy glow even in this Awful winter Boston has been having. I love this stuff, i would say it is oily but i find throughout the day it just absorbs and looks great.

      It's okay

      By Samantha

      from California

      Comments about Skyn Iceland Arctic Face Oil:

      I would say this oil is okay. Actually feels like a dry oil. I was disappointed because it didn't find it to be very hydrating and I think this has been breaking me out. Every time I use it I wake up with a couple of white heads. Will be returning for something else.

        Comments about Skyn Iceland Arctic Face Oil:

        I have been using this product for years, and just started purchasing online. I don't love all of Skyn's products but I do LOVE this one. Yes, this is an oil, so it's safe to say that it's greasy... but some of us need oil! Fun fact, Marilyn Monroe used vaseline among other oils to start her beauty routine.

        Anyway, I have very dry, sensitive, redness prone, easily inflamed skin... aka full blown rosacea, and it's the worst! This is so calming and protecting to my skin, to the point that I rarely have skin flare ups anymore. I seriously keep a bad stock so I don't run out.

        Long but last story, this past summer was my first trip to the beach with all of my extended inlaw family. One of my new younger cousins had a horrible skin reaction to something, her mother and grandmother (both medical professionals) tried several things but NOTHING made it better until she tried my oil. She said it felt better almost instantly, I let her keep my extra bottle and before the end of the day she was almost completely back to normal after having been bright red, inflamed and blistered for days.

        I recommend this to everyone that has skin issues like dryness, inflammation, irritation, etc. It is the jam and an essential for me!

                Comments about Skyn Iceland Arctic Face Oil:

                I tried this product hoping it would be a slightly-lower-cost replacement for a higher-end facial oil I currently use under makeup that I love to also use at night. I did not find what I'm looking for in this product. It isn't terrible, and it didn't aggravate my eczema or break me out, but it's not great and I won't be repurchasing it. It doesn't absorb as much as other face oils I've tried, resulting in an oily feeling that I can still feel the next more. Nor does it moisturize as much other face oils I've tried. This is better than coconut oil, which I found to sit too heavily on my skin to use as a moisturizer (I still use it for oil cleansing/double-cleansing), but it's not even close to the best out there. It's nearly unscented too, which I appreciate (heavily fragranced products sometimes give me a headache). Overall, it's not bad enough to return it but I'll be happy when it's gone so I can move on to something else.

                    Hi Carli,

                    This oil will not make you breakout, but rather help to control the oil! It balances your skin, so less oil yet leaves your skin with just the right amount of hydration.
                    Hope this helps.

                    Hello Zosie,
                    Thanks so much for using Skyn Iceland products. Face Oil is ideal for anyone with dry skin. But a moisturizer alone isn't the answer. I would recommend using a proper cleanser for dry skin (try our Glacial Face Wash), and our Nordic Skin Peel Pads. These pads help to remove the surface dead skin when used daily. This will allow your moisturizer to work more efficiently. I would also recommend you use our Arctic Elixir Serum under the Face Oil. Dry skin is so uncomfortable, but using these steps will help tremendously. On a scale of 1-10...A 10

                    Hello and thank you for your question about Arctic Face Oil. You are absolutely correct. AFO will balance your skin. Helping to give you a hydrated look rather than a greasy oily look. This is a nourishing oil that hydrates, calms and soothes irritation and inflammation. People I know that have oily skin say that this product totally balances their skin. Good news is, you can use this anywhere to help hydrate, including face, cuticles, hair and under eye area too! Enjoy!

                    All skyn ICELAND products have undergone rigorous allergy and sensitivity testing. Of course, if you have specific concerns, you should always consult your doctor.

                    skyn ICELAND:
                    - has been clinically tested on even the most sensitive, delicate skin
                    - has been used with great results post-plastic surgery, post-laser and -skin peels, and on burned skin
                    - actually takes the irritation and sensitivities OUT of skin. skyn ICELAND's formulas contain active levels of natural ingredients which reduce redness, irritation, hives and breakouts on all skin types
