Most Helpful Positive Review I have been buying this for years now
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!
Most Helpful Critical Review Eh...
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.

This stuff is pretty to look at. It glides on smooth, like an oil should, but it's not very absorbent. It feels good on the skin. Not really heavy. But it just sort of sits on my skin. Maybe it helps to reduce redness, but I haven't been floored by the results. And it has a dry oatmeal smell. Not bad but not pleasant either. I've tried other oils with better results. I bought this because I took the Ulta skin test. This is the only item that came up for me.
I can't take the weird smell
Jackie from Florida
It's definitely moisturizing but it smells almost fishy
Great moisturizer not so great smell
MeganC from Arizona
I really like this face oil. I have combo skin so I have both occasional breakouts and dry skin. This did not cause any break outs. It does an amazing job moisturizing. The only negative is that it smells pretty bad.

I haven't used the product yet but im happy with the size.
Mid thirties w/ dry skin and this broke me out. :(
Mid thirties dry skin from Phoenix AZ
I purchased this product in hopes that it would help moisturize my skin. I had been using clarins serum and moisturizers which made my skin look great and moisturized but the products are expensive and have a lot of fragrance. In my hopes to find something with less fragrance and less of a price tag I tried this product out. However after using this oil every day for a little over a week I realized my skin was breaking out in cystic acne :( So I will not be using this product anymore. I switched back to my old routine and the clarins products and my skin cleared up again.
Skin fanatic from Oklahoma
I was skeptic about trying this oil but the reviews sold me. But after using this only for two days I've noticed a dramatic difference in my skin complexion. The find lines are smoother, my skin looks healthier and it calms redness and just overall irritation. It's not overly greasy unlike other oils. Definitely recommend. Also it absorbs so easily.
My Holy Grail!
Maddie from Pittsburgh, PA
This product has truly saved my skin. I've yet to find another oil that leaves my skin as soft and plump as this one. I have sensitive, dull, dry skin and am prone to dry patches which most oils aggravate. I need only one or two drops of this oil to cover my whole face and using it twice a day has completely changed my skin's appearance. My face feels plumper, softer, and healthier. I will continue to repurchase this oil, it's an absolute necessity in my routine now!
Love love love it!
Bernatisoo from Upton, MA
I absolutely love this product! I've used (and sold) many types of skin care and I've never found a product that makes my skin feel so smooth and soft. I use 4-6 drops depending on how dry my skin feels after I wash my face every night, I don't even need to put a moisturizer on top!
Victoria from Round Rock, Texas
This is an amazing face oil. I used it last night and my face felt so soft. When I woke up my pores were smaller and my acne looked better and my face had a lovely glow. Great to use under makeup as well.
amazing ingredients for glowy skin
nash from boston
I love this oil so much, I first bought it maybe 2 years ago or so, and after buying 3 I started to make my own given that the main ingredient in this is the camelina oil, I realized purchasing skins version is wayyyy more expensive than making my own version.
my face is glowly year round, has never looked better and get compliments all the time on how good it looks
Skier from USA
There is nothing life changing about this product to make it worth the price. It feels nice but nothing more than what I could buy at the drug store. I'll use the rest of the product but certainly won't purchase again. Quite disappointing for the price.
Brookie from Utah
I bought this on a whim hoping I would like it and I love it! I use it after the glacial face wash and before my moisturizing (I use a clique moisturizer in the day and the Skyn Oxygen night cream at night) but I love the way this feels on my skin, I think it gives my skin the extra boost it needs in addition to my moisturizers. I like the way it smells and it goes on nicely. You only need a few drops so it lasts forever. Hasn't made me break out at all which is awesome! Love it!
Great Face Oil!
Jessie from Illinois
It moisturizes and doesn't make my skin look oily.
Great for protecting skin in the winter
Hannah from Maryland
My skin gets super dry in the winter, especially when I am outside. I'm honestly not sure if its the intended use of the product, but I put it on at night over top of my moisturizer and if I go outside for a long period of time, I put it over my moisturizer. It really seems to seal in the moisture without clogging my pores or irritating my sensitive skin. I haven't found anything else that works as well.
Not for everyone
Bri17 from California
This winter I wanted to stay extra hydrated as my skin seems to get really dry. This oil didn't help, my skin was still very dry... It is a nice oil and I wish it would have benefited me but hey it's not for everyone.
Wise Glaukopis from Seattle, WA
This is very moisturizing and a little of it goes a long way. If you use too much it will get all over. Before I got used to how much to use it would get all over my glasses and I would have a horrible time trying to get them clean. It has a pretty neutral smell.
I would definitely buy this product again!
Val from Los Angeles
I love this oil, at first I was hesitant because of the price but I was convinced to purchase it! I've been wearing it for 2 weeks, evening and morning, and so far not one pimple! I get a pimple or 2 every now and then before menstruation, and I haven't had a single zit. My makeup lasts way longer with this oil! I definitely recommend it. My face is way smoother too!
Whitney from Texas
I didn't care for this as a face product, nor do I care too much for the smell. It didn't seem to absorb as well for me, or as well as I'd hoped. However, skin is more than just the face! I've started using this on other places I don't mind feeling a bit oily like; a couple of surgical scars and my very mild eczema, both on my legs. It has provided great moisture for me in these areas, helping with dryness and itching. I probably won't reorder it again.
CAB from Monmouth County, NJ
I'm 60 and have tried countless products over the years. And the frequency of purchases has gone up after being diagnosed with Hashimoto's. Nothing seemed to moisturize anymore. Skyn Iceland oil caught me eye one day and I figured I'd give it a go. This is now a product I'll buy again and again ... and I honestly don't think I've ever done that before except for Juice Beauty items. I can't rave enough about both brands.
Olive from Ohio
I use it after i wash my face and it has completely changed my skin. Used to be dry and crusty, no longer have that issue!
Natural hydration for my dry skin!
Jess from Phoenix AZ
Amazing how my super dry skin is instantly hydrated! I also love mixing a few drops of this oil with my moisturizer.
Ase from Alaska
This product not only helped my dry skin but gave me a healthy dewy look rather than the oily greasy look. Once I run out I'll be getting more!
Amazing and now part of my permanent skin care regimen
Chrysta from Denver, CO
I'm 46 years old and live in dry Colorado, I've only used this product for a week and can tell a dramatic difference already. My skin feels as soft as satin and my finer lines are less noticeable due to my skin being more moisturized. Love this product!
Katie from Auburn Alabama
I really like this face oil. it's very moisturizing and hasn't caused any irritation or break outs. Product has a cooling effect that is really nice but To be 99.9% of one type of oil I think it is a touch expensive.
Sarah from Washington, DC
Pros: Provided additional moisture for the winter months; did not make me break out
Cons: There are better winter moisturizers at this price point. It did nothing to improve the overall appearance of my skin
