Simple and nourishing

Another Ordinary top product. I bought this because I knew about the magic of Marula oil as an added ingredient, however I had never tried it pure. My skin is combination, dry with an oily T-Zone. It is nourishing without overloading my T-Zone, leaves skin feeling soft and also is a great opportunity to massage my face in the evening before bed. I do need to put a moisturiser on over the top.

Light and hydrating

Love this oil. Feels like I’m giving my skin a real ‘drink’ when I put this on. Very nourishing and luxurious. I had some samples of the DE virgin marula oil and found this much cheaper alternative which works just as well in my opinion. Key part of my routine in the winter months.

Budget freindly oil

The ordinary Marula is very affordable and never go back to other marula oil. It has a very faint, nearly undetectable scent that makes me think of the aroma of black currant berries. Rather than an oil, it has a moisturizer-like sensation. Additionally, it partially penetrates the skin as opposed to remaining on top. After use, skin feels refreshed and new. Without a doubt, I advise trying it. 

Best Use: Hydrating, Barrier Repair

A dupe for drunk elephant marula oil!

I use both the drunk elephant marula oil and the ordinary maruka oil. I really cannot tell any major differences. Maybe the drunk elephant feels slightly more gentle on my skin, however I did not notice any visible differences on my skin. The ordinary marula oil has a much better pricepoint so I also use this in my hair and sometimes add a few drops in my bodylotion. Great nourishing oil, will definitely repurchase!

Nice Oil

i have bought this to use with Gua Sha. i usually use 2,3 drops together with a hydrating serum from a different company and then use the Gua Sha. i have combination skin, and this oil is gentle enough that it doesn't leave my skin too oily. it actually feels very smooth

Best Use: Hydrating, Minimise Fine Lines & Wrinkles
