A good oil

I started using this for hormonal acne on my chin and found it does help a bit. I also like using it as the last step in my nighttime routine to seal everything in. The scent is not great (although some bottles seem to smell stronger than others) but I've gotten used to it.

Really nourishing

A really lovely oil for dry or irritated skin. I used this to calm and soothe my skin when I got a reaction form another product. It’s been so helpful, helped with my dry patches and was so mild on my skin. Definitely would recommend for how nourishing and hydrating this oil is

So stinky :(

This oil did leave my skin very soft but unfortunately I was only able to use it twice. I honestly thought (and hoped) that the other reviewers were exaggerating about the smell, but unfortunately it is really bad. It reminds me of overcooked bone broth, which is not something that I want on my face (or anywhere else). I tried to mix it with organic essential oil but I think it just made it worse. It’s a good oil, but unfortunately unusable for me because of the smell.

Best Use: Hydration

Best oil for dry or dehydrated skim

This is the best oil for dry skin types or dehydrated. It leaves me with super soft skin everytime I use it l. If I'm ever feeling super dry I always reach for this as it really sorts my skin out. Would reccomend to anyone. It does have a bit of a nutty smell but that doesn't bother me as the product works so well

The smell is awful

I was used to use borage oil many years ago and it did have a strong smell which wasn’t really nice but was ok. This from the ordinary is sickening bad, like I was literally going to throw up and had to quickly remove it. Unfortunately this is a no for me.
