Most Helpful Positive Review This product has so much potential
I received my bottle of the Cannabis Sativa Concentrate a little over three weeks ago. I have very confused skin- I dont have acneic skin but I'm quite acne prone. I'm not too oily but I have my oily moments. As far as dryness, I only experience extreme dryness around my acne prone problem areas (nose and middle of forehead). On top of this, a gust of wind can turn my face bright red. I was nervous to start using an oil but this product sounded like it was made just for me. The texture is very lightweight and soaks in quite easily. It doesn't really feel like an oil- but more of a serum. I don't mind the smell because the way I see it, the eartheir the smell, the less harmful fragrances there are. The price point is an average Kiehl's price point but a pretty nice price for a serum- and I think this oil acts more like a serum than a facial oil.
upon application, I can feel a quick relief of pain on any active pimples. This concentrate is great at relieving redness of the skin, painful or swollen pimples, and dryness. I absolutely believe this serum is worth the shot, and there's nothing to lose since the oil is non-comedogenic and there's only a small chance of a break out.
My main complaint is the packaging. With a serum this powerful and rich, I would prefer it to be packaged in a air tight, pump that doesn't allow any light in. Another complaint is that the top screws off way to easily. No matter how hard you tighten it, it seems like just a good shake can get the top off. I would never travel with this oil because it is absolutely not travel proof. I'm not sure if the bottle I got was defected or if this is just a flaw to their new package design but it definitely needs to be changed.
* I used the kiehl's acne wash while I was testing this product out just have some extra defence against any possible breakout.

So upset how I didn't even knock it over that hard it broke like this. Horrible!
Reviewed by 211 customers My favorite oil ever!
Kae from Pa
I have extremely sensitive skin and use the night oil and day oil from Kiehls. But ended up buying this one as well for my redness. Usually after applying my skin care my face is super red, but after using the oil I have no redness and my skin doesn't feel irritated. My acne has also basically went away. Nice and lightweight and great for layering
This really helps with my pores.

Love this product
Heathermack from Chicago, il
I get redness in my skin and this product solved my redness issues. I was worried it'd be too oily and that was not that case at all. It absorbs really well.
Changed my life right...
Anthony from Indianapolis, in
Changed my life right now instantly got rid of red itchy patches I have all over my face I've tried everything and this worked after 2 uses
Only thing that works on my sensitive skin!
Siena from Virginia
I received a sample a while back and decided why not try it. It is the only thing that works on blemishes on my sensitive combination skin literally overnight without drying it out and creating discolored dry patches. I was and still am to this day totally surprised each time I use it.
Great product, poor packaging.
Kirbycutie from California
Like many of these reviews left on this page, I agree product works well. Although product doesn't seal properly and if knocked over on accident, all liquid will spill out. Until they correct the packaging this review will stay at one star.
ReneeC from undisclosed
So I had a chemical burn on my face from treating a pimple with tea tree oil (legit 2nd degree oozing burn), followed by a rash around it and a breakout from pms + wearing a mask. It has been one week and my burn/rash/breakout is gone!!! Also, last night i had a pimple coming (white head appearing) and I wanted to reach for tea tree oil again but used this and this morning there's just a tiny red spot left. MIRACLE PRODUCT! The smell is a little weird but I like the scent of cannabis so that might bother some.
Perfect for those with oily skin!
mkool38 from Cincinnati, OH
I initially received a sample to try, and even after the first week, I loved it so much I bought the full-size version!! I have quite oily skin, and the thought of applying oil to it seemed so counterintuitive, but with this oil (and the Midnight Recovery/Daily Reviving Concentrates), my skin actually produces LESS oil, and is clearing up wonderfully. I first use the microdermabrasion face scrub or the oil-free face scrub, then apply the oil-free toner, THEN the Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil and morning/evening oil, and finally the oil-free moisturizer to seal it all in. I love it, despite the price!
CarlyJ from Tennessee
This oil has helped my face and kept my natural oils regulated better than anything else I've used. It's also lasted me so much longer than I expected since a little goes a long way. Definitely worth the money if you're able to spend it!
Game changer for my acne prone skin
LadybirdIL from Tel Aviv Israel
I have been using this oil for two months at night after cleansing with the calendula cleanser and it has cleared up stubborn acne that's been there for years, including white heads and pustules. Pleasant smell/low odor and good follow up after using acids and retinol products to calm down the skin.
Saved my mask-covered face!
MamaToTheLilFox from Brooklyn, NY, USA
I started using this during the pandemic because my sensitive skin was going bananas being covered with a mask. This calmed my skin down and surprisingly, my skin is even softer and smoother than before! I never write reviews but I've recommended this to so many friends now, it seemed right to do this!
Fix bottle and top yet?
SensSkin from Maine
I'll try it once I know the packaging issues are corrected. Won't buy if it's spilling.
Anne from Montana
This is awesome! I tried a sample a few months back and loved it. I have a very a very uneven skin tone and get a few acne spots a month. This helps so much! It's very calming to the skin and my skin feels very moisturized and my zits don't hurt as bad. My cheeks aren't as red as before I started using this and my face overall looks smoother. Plus you're getting a MASSIVE bottle for the amount you need to use. I use 3-4 drops of this every other day as I change off with other serums. This will last me for atleast a year so definitely worth the price.
Nique from undisclosed
Combined with my regular skincare routine, this product does magic treating acne.
For overnight use, I combine it with Midnight Recovery Concentrate because I find the smell too strong and energising. From time to time, I apply it in the morning, too.
Would definitely recommend it if you find the price and the smell acceptable!
Doesn't do anything
katttttttt from Los Angeles, CA, USA
I liked the IDEA of this product, but after using consistently it really didn't do much for my skin. It didn't improve it, slightly added to its problems so will not buy.
Owletta from CA
Unfortunately I had a reaction to this. Within minutes my cheeks were burning & red. I though I was crazy so tried it a second time- nope, same thing again.
Something for for sensitive skin people to keep in mind!
Jas from Saint Paul, MN
My skin loves this oil. I've seen fewer breakouts, luminous skin, and my makeup performs better. When I feel extra dry, I just add a few drops of jojoba and I'm good to go.
I've discontinued use during pregnancy due to insufficient evidence about essential oils and fetal development, but I can't wait to add this oil back into my routine once my baby arrives.
Laney from St. Louis
My skin is mostly dry with a little bit of acne. Other acne products dried my skin out too much. It does have an earthy smell but once I put my moisturizer on over it goes away.
Amber from San Antonio
I have been using kiehl's for years and they have the best products out there. When this oil came out I tried the sample size and I was a little thrown by the smell because it smells like pot lol hints the cannabis sativa seed but it definitely clears up blemishes and inflammation fast. I use it at night and in the morning the inflammation is gone and the blemish is too if not significantly smaller. I would go to kiehls and get a sample and try it out. I love this stuff and I really don't mind the smell lol
Cured my Acne
angelinav357 from undisclosed
This oil is simply amazing. I don't know what Kiehl's has done... But this works ! I have had pretty bad acne (new pimples every day from surface to cystic) for the past 6 years and this oil combined with the sativa cleanser has made every breakout vanish. If I don't use it for a few days, acne comes back but leaves immediately with continued use of these products! Highly recommend ! I owe my clear skin to this!
Vejle from Melbourne, Australia
I finally found a product that helps calm down AND clear up my perioral dermatitis!! This is so amazing - calmed my skin down after the first use and my skin started to clear up already after using the oil for a few days. Definitely my new holy grail product.
