Perfect for my dry, acne prone skin!

I like to use this one when my skin is feeling extra dry and my regular moisturizer just doesn't cut it for me (like in the winter months, if I've had a reaction to something or after a clay mask). I love it since it keeps my skin feeling hydrated and moisturized without it feeling oily or breaking me out!
When I first got it I applied a bit too much, not knowing you really need just the tiniest amount to moisturize you entire face+neck, so I used to wake up the next morning looking like I've just dipped my face in oil lmaoo.
I love it now tho!

Safe oil for FA prone skin

Very affordable but effective oil. 100% oil with unnecessary fragrance, essential oils, etc. I also use this on hair. Just a couple of drops on dry hair.

I like to use on cuticles as well as face. Only a couple of drops (alone or over other skin care products) helps moisture level.
