Rated 4.59 out of 5 stars
I received this as a sample and due to my oily, combo & acne prone skin I tend to stay away from oils as I usually wake up the next morning with a break out but thought I??d try it anyways and I??m glad I did!!
First off it smells nice and absorbs into the skin almost instantly without leaving you with a heavy greasy feel. Most importantly I noticed results believe it or not within the first try!
I have noticiably dry skin around the eyes and with one use it was gone, my skin felt so soft and hydrated.
Definitely gonna save for this!!!!
Long review, so be prepared. First use wasn't satisfying, my skin was almost scaly the next morning after prebed post-cleansing/toner use (i only do oils before bed) . Really uncomfortable texture when i woke, and tight/dry into the following day despite a 4 step morning/evening routine that day. Since Ive had overdryness when using kale heavy cleansers more than once in a day, I guardedly attributed it to that and not surprisingly, I took several days away from this product.
Next use was after cleanser, moisturizing lancome confort toner, followed by this product, and lancome hydrazen gel moisturizer. I didnt wind up as dry/scaly in the morning, which was a relief, so I continued this night routine for another 2 days. After which, I started breaking out with a few small bumps. Again, I discontinued use for several days until skin was healed for a few days.
Finally, I found a method to include it in my routine without irritation. After cleansing & toning, I add a couple drops of this product to a couple drops each of eg4u c serum, manyo galactomyces niacin, mizon snail serum, and cclimglam 24k gold ampule. In this blend, my skin was really responsive without any adverse effect from pure oil use. I then follow it with origins original skin matte moisturizer with willowherb. I have neither dryness or breakouts when using it this way, and my skin balance and texture was quite nice.
I would guardedly recommend this product, but advise a patch test first, and possible dilution with another known skin friendly product.

Love the formula. Strongly dislike the smell and so did my husband.

This is an excellent product — keeps my mature skin moisturized and supple.

Works great on my sensitive skin. I'm 26 and my skin is starting to show signs of aging, but when I use this regularly my slight forehead lines vanish. I don't want to demonize aging, but I feel SO happy and confident now! I've tried squalene from another brand and it would always breakout my forehead, but this does not. A little goes a long way too, no need to overdo it.

Really wanted to love…..felt light and smooth on skin, and smell was medicinal in a good way, but I broke out so badly after using for just over 2 two weeks that I had to eliminate all products in use that had any pore clogging ingredients, and had to go to the harsh benzoyl peroxide products to clear my skin. Took several weeks to clear and build routine back up again. May work for some, but if acne prone , beware!

My skin feels very irritated and have burning sensations. If I could I would return it. Terrible product. I now seeing that most people who liked the oil for getting as a gift probably for a good review.

I am a skin care fanatic. This is the best facial oil I've ever used. I already ordered a back up. I never want to be low or out. Thank you

A makeup artist was using this on tiktok so I bought the travel size to try it and was instantly hooked. After that was gone, I bought the full size one. It's super hydrating and makes my makeup look beautiful and my skin looks dewy. I would definitely recommend this oil. It's soo good!

I gave this facial oil a try on a whim because I noticed it was a little lower in price than the marine collagen oil. Wow! I am ever so glad I did!! I specifically use this in my nighttime routine. I can feel my skin drink up this oil as I pat it on. I love the way my skin feel smooth and satiny. I have very dry skin so this product is something I feel that I cannot love without. The smell is just. Sleek. It has a lovely scent that reminds me of the spa. I have been hooked on this stuff since my first try!

As much as I would love that, my skin gets red pimples as soon as I use it. I have such sensitive skin that it reacts quickly to different substances. And yes, I'm a massive fan of Decleor Bigarade Oil. I ordered four bottles from Germany today, and unfortunately, I can't get them in the USA. I can't wait until it's here. My skin also looks better after applying it. I'll take Elemis when my Decleor runs out, but I guess I'll have to give it up. This isn't the first time I've had this experience with Elemis Oil.

Emily from GEORGIA
Very nourishing oil for the face. The oil smells like tea tree oil and has an overall pleasant scent. Product is expensive for the size of the bottle.

I absolutely love this product, it doesn't leave your skin oily at all. A little goes a long way.
Dian from La Jolla
I have used many other facial oils on a bare face under my regime of moistrzing products and Superfood goes on easy, and sinks in. I put it on before my nighttime cream. In the morning, unlike other serums, my face is still dewey ! I love Elemis products and to start with this great facial oil after cleansing my face keeps my older, used-to sunbath skin, looking great!
Dianne from South Carolina
Light texture…. Pleasant scent …. My skin is happy !

Love the way it feels in my skin

I had it on for 5 minutes and rain to wash it all off and redo my skincare. It smelled like bad potpourri. Didn't even want to think of what it would have done to my skin. It already was feeling irritated. Returning it today.

Elemis products are so top notch, effective, and just fabulous! My skin is obsessed with all of it! I add one drop to my morning moisturizer, and pat a tiny bit under my eyes/over eye cream. Makes for the best makeup application and goes to work on fine lines and wrinkles. Will last for a long time, so worth the price! Smells like heaven, which is the cherry on the sundae!

Love this product
DeeDee from California
I have normal to oily skin, slightly large pores and using the Superfood facial oil seemed to clog my pores and make me break out with little white heads. Unfortunately I had to stop using it.
