Get your glow on. Nyakio's Marula & Neroli Brightening Oil is a lightweight oil that targets imperfections, minimizing the appearance of discoloration and uneven skin tone. Marula and neroli oils, rich in antioxidant vitamin C, helps brighten and protect. Both oils are cold-pressed to preserve their nutrients.

Marula and neroli oils have a rich history, being used by women from Morocco to Mozambique for their skin improving properties. Marula oil, "Africa's Miracle Oil," is derived from the marula tree which grows only in sub-equatorial Africa, making it a rare treasure. Nyakio's is sourced from Mozambique. Beautifully fragrant neroli oil undergoes an extensive extraction process from the flowers of the bitter orange tree in Morocco. Nyakio's grandfather, a medicine man, often extracted tree nut oils like these to restore the skin.

    Comments about Nyakio Marula & Neroli Brightening Oil:

    I have mature skin (45 yrs old) and also oily skin, but now in my 40's, I am starting to see more and more wrinkles. This product works great with my oily skin. I was concerned this would make my face break out, but it hasn't and has really helped even out my skin tone and my skin has responded well to it. I use it as an evening moisturizer and am very happy with the product and the ingredients.

    Love the smell

    By Heather0

    Comments about Nyakio Marula & Neroli Brightening Oil:

    I use it as a perfume or on my hair for frizz! I really do not notice any difference on my face/skin. It feels a little sticky and hard to apply on my face.

      Comments about Nyakio Marula & Neroli Brightening Oil:

      This was the first oil I ever bought, so I wasn't sure how my skin would react. Turns out, it works fantastically. It's not greasy and moisturizes really well. I put it on under an oil free moisturizer. I've used it for about three weeks and haven't broken out once, instead my skin feels light and hydrated.

      Comments about Nyakio Marula & Neroli Brightening Oil:

      Okay so I'm a brown skin girl with dark spots, so you already know the hassle of trying to get rid of them. WITHIN THE FIRST WEEK I started evening out. Within three months the majority of my dark spots had faded. A little goes a LONG way, which is a plus.
      Honestly so impressed and happy I found this product. Definitely buying another one. : )

        Nothing like her original with Kola Nut. The ingredients are cheaper now to improve profits. So sad, she had a gem of a product.

          Comments about Nyakio Marula & Neroli Brightening Oil:

          After asking for some natural skin care recommendations for combination skin, I was pointed towards this face oil and absolutely loved it. I was wary at first because my cheeks and forehead are notoriously oily and shiny, but this sunk in like a dream. I felt fresher and prettier after just a couple days worth of use! But word to the wise for fellow oily/combination people--your best bet is only about 2 drops evenly distributed around your problem areas, not 5+ concentrated drops or a drop for every problem area. Made that mistake and my skin did not agree with it!

          This is the best facial oil I have ever tried. I love facial oils and am always on the lookout for them but this is the first oil which does what it says. Saw a difference within a couple of days. People were also commenting how fresh my skin looked.
