This was the first Sea Bucktorn oil I've tried, even after having used many oils, I was still a Sea Buckthorn oil newbie and for the first time in a long time I had a 'Wow' feeling after using this. I haven't really been attending to my skin lately so my skin was ready for some pampering nourishment and it got it, and then some, with this oil.
It is a bright Orange rich/heavy oil with a subtle (and imo lovely), slightly heady smell. I primarily used it overnight, first cleansing my skin and then putting a little on before going to sleep, and when I woke up in the morning had the pleasant surprise of glowing and ultra soft skin. For the first week I woke up to these lovely results and my skin also looked a little fuller (alas with age the face tends to get more defined and the 'rounded' face of youth becomes a memory). After that my skin stopped glowing and the youthful look wasn't as pronounced but my skin was still extremely soft whilst looking and feeling well nourished. I also found it especially helpful to use after steaming e.g. having a bath, when the skin needed moisturizing more this oil really stepped up to the plate and my skin did not feel like it lost anything through the exposure to water.
Overall I'd give this product a 9/10 because it does what it says on the packaging though I would have liked the initial reactions to have lasted a bit longer before my skin got used to it. But anything that naturally makes my skin both look and feel younger has my appreciation!
