Ordinary Borage oil for skin

Borage Seed Oil cold-pressed. I bought this oil after reading the benefits of it in the internet for sensitive and combination skin. This oil absorbs quickly and leaves a pleasant feeling of hydration, it can also be mixed with a daily moisturiser to add deeper hydration. I also you use it for body, as you don’t have to wait for long to dry after applying this oil. It has no smell which is also bonus if skin is sensitive. I bought already another few bottles to share it with my friends, as I think it’s one of the best oil to use on face. Ordinary brand offers a good quality premium oil, it comes in a dark glass bottle with a stick for an accurate dosage. I guess it can be used as a base oil if you prefer to add essential oils for extra benefit. I have been using it now for 4 months, and I feel that my skin is enjoining it. I used it in summer after sunbathing , when I felt that my skin becomes dry and this oil returned hydration instantly. I will have to see how my skin will be feeling when winter starts, I really hope it will continue to moisture my skin after windy or rainy day. I will be suggesting this oil to my friends, as I personally find it one of the best oils. If your skin has allergies symptoms like mine, I still used this oil and I had no harm. The oil is light and not heavy on skin.

Decent Oil

This oil is pretty decent for the price. It offers a good level of hydration, but it wasn't my favourite of The Ordinary oils. I didn't enjoy using it and didn't feel as nourishing for my dry skin as other options. The smell of the oil also affects the experience of using it. I wouldn't recommend this oil to someone who's sensitive to scent, but it's okay in quality for the price.

Best Use: Hydrating

Terrible smell

The oil feels good going on but unfortunately the smell is so bad that I can’t stand to keep it on. It smells like chicken broth (but not in a yummy way). At first I thought it was ok but it doesn’t fade and just makes me feel nauseous. I tried it on ny hands because I thought it would be less offensive, but unfortunately it was just as bad.
