Most Helpful Positive Review Healed severely dry eye area skin w/o causing milia!
Nothing has ever worked to stop the awful dryness I have around my eyes and if it did it caused milia. Urgh. One day out of sheer frustration (and a day of crusty looking concealer) I put one drop of the marula oil under each of my eyes and patted it all over my eyelids, under eyes, inner corners, and outer corners. Wow. I wasn't expecting results the next day but okay, there was significant improvement happening. I didn't have that dry feeling around my eyes when I woke up and I could feel the difference all day. Two weeks later and my eye area is a whole new place. No more crusty concealer days. No more tight dry feeling. No more dryness getting worse throughout the day. It's just soft and smooth and feels good. I've been using it around my eyes for almost a year now and I haven't developed any new milia from it. Surprisingly the smaller/midi bottle lasted around 8 months for me - I used two drops (one for each eye) every single night. I also used 3-4 drops on the rest of my face a couple nights a week after using higher percentage ahas or retinol. It's very soothing and my skin always looks a bit â€œplumperâ€ (it's the hydration/moisture) the next day. I have psychotic skin that can freak out easily (and once it's angry omg it wants to end my life so I have to be super careful). My crazy skin loves this so much though. It has become my official â€œeye creamâ€ - solved my dryness without causing milia. It's soothing and absolutely lovely. A couple drops really does the trick. I appreciate that it lasted quite a while too.
Most Helpful Critical Review Just ok
I had read soo many great reviews about this product so I was excited to purchase it. It fell flat for me. It's too thick for me, but that's not my problem, my problem is that I feel like my skin is not aware that I'm now using expensive products. I see no difference, I have been using them for 3.5 weeks already. I will finish the products assuming it will be a few months ( I bought the bigger one) maybe by then I'll see my money's worth. I bought it together with the framboos glycolic night serum.

Love this product for anti-aging and extra hydration at night! I wake up with glowing, smooth skin. It's a little thick so I only use it at night. It doesn't make me break out and love putting this over other Drunk Elephant products. Will buy this again!

it's a good oil but you can literally go buy the same exact thing for under $20. remember people, more expensive doesn't mean better
Beware from Texas
I don't normally leave reviews but thought to warn that my face completely broke out with this oil. I don't know if its in conjunction with my other products, most of which are from philosophy but never had an issue until I brought this in my regimen. Don't normally have any severe problems with my face, I tend to be normal in most brand categories just thought to warn.
great oil.. FOR ALL SKIN TYPES..there's no alternative!
JessicaIrene from Philadelphia, PA
this is an amazing oil. I've tried a few from different brands and this is by far my favorite oil. it doesn't break me out and it doesn't leave my skin greasy, I can put it under my eyes if I'm having extra dry under eyes underneath my concealer and I can wear it at night as my last step in my skin care. it's very versatile. I like it over Josie Maran's Argan oil and Sunday Riley's Luna oil or Martian oil. it's the best one I've tried that does what it says and doesn't leave my skin greasy or acne riddled. it does exactly what it's supposed to do on any area of my skin. in the wintertime I like to use this with under my makeup in the morning. I will put this on then apply my primer, wait 10 minutes and then apply my makeup. it does a fantastic job and it doesn't break up my makeup throughout the day like most oil would. I think this is great for any skin type. I started using this when I had normal skin and transitioned to dry and flaky skin and it still does great things.
Cleared my acne

I have been searching for the perfect oil and this is it! The scars from my acne have faded and it has definitely slowed my acne down! Must have and worth the price for sure
Better than I expected
Michele from PA
I was skeptical to use a face oil for fear of breakouts, but this is amazing. It absorbs quickly and leaves your skin incredibly smooth and clear.
Coco323 from CA
This is the only oil that helps me with ALL my issues. I've stalled on buying it because it is out of my budget, but let me tell you, I am never letting go! I think I've spent more $$ buying other oils that made my skin worse.
I have VERY sensitive, super dry, textured skin and I can immediately feel the diference. Trust me when I say it works. I have rough hands/cuticles as well and this oil soothes them completely.
I know it says to use 2 to 3 drops, but I use more like 6 or 8. U won't be disappointed. :)
Ruby from Arizona
Ordered this because my face starts drying in colder weather. I'm combo skin. I use about 3 drops at night mixed with my moisturizer and my face feels so good! I wake up feeling hydrated. I apply it right to my under eye area
Julie from MI
I used to use tartes maracuja oil with such simple ingredients then they changed the formula, added a bunch of stuff and it now has a fragrance. This oil is so good and so simple. It's pretty pricy but I've been looking for a new oil with just a few simple ingredients and stumbled upon this. It makes my skin feel so hydrated, soft and glowy, I add 2 drops into my morning and nighttime moisturizer

This is the first oil I've used that I actually liked! I layered the b hydra serum, la retro moisturizer, and then this. My skin has never felt so soft and smooth. I had to keep telling myself to stop touching my face or I'd break out. It doesn't leave that greasy or sticky feeling on top of your skin, it actually sinks in and leaves your skin feeling supple and soft
Holy grail of oils
Steph from Ohio
This oil is so good!! It cleared up my face and I look flawless since I started using . I love all drunk elephant products. They are insanely good!!
Vee from Colorado
I hate how much I love this oil. I hate oils for the face so much but something about the way this one sinks into my skin, it really makes it worth the price tag for me because I've never found an oil I like! Huge favorite in my skincare routine, it leaves my face looking very hydrated and silky
Best facial oil ever
Grace from CA
So excited Drunk Elephant is coming to Ulta! 😍 This is one of my holy grail products (and I've tried A LOT of skincare!). It is so hydrating, helps with retinol, and reduces my redness. I will buy this forever!
Christa P. from US
Love how this feels. I don't use every day, but when skin feels dry its nice to add a light layer on my skin.
Judith C. from US
I love the Virgin Marula oil! It makes my 63 year old skin so soft-my skin drinks it in. Not greasy at all!!
KB from SC
Best oil I've tried so far, however I do not buy this one anymore because Acure has a marula oil that works just as well with the exact same ingredient list. I keep that one in my drawer to maintain efficacy since it has a clear bottle, but otherwise there is no discernible difference between the two.
Love this oil!
Stephanie M. from US
I have tried different brands of Marula oil and nothing compares to Drunk Elephants!
Abigail R. from US
I am never without my VML oil. I use it in lieu of nighttime moisturizer. It keeps my skim supple and hydrated.
I've been using it consistently
Nicole C. from US
I've been using it consistently for almost a month, religiously and I don't feel like my skin is any better at all. Almost looks worse.
Best to A thirsty skin!

Love this oil!

I swear between the time I put this oil on my face and I wake up in the morning, my face is looking more even and minor lines I have on it diminish. Highly recommend this product, more than any other Drunk Elephant product.
Juli L. from US
Been using DE Marula oil for a few years now and I love it. No smell, absorbs into the skin. I have sensitive combination skin and when used sparingly it completes my daily regimen.
Kathleen S. from US
This oil sinks into your face and neck flawlessly and feels so fabulous!
Tatianna E. from US
I used to be afraid of oils because of my very oily skin but THIS is a game changer. It's HIGHLY absorbable and NEVER greasy, it sinks right into the skin. This gives my skin the extra hydration and healing power it NEEDS.
Best pure oil for dry skin
Maria F. from US
I have tried other pure oils - squalane, jojoba. This is the only oil that really helps my dry skin
