Smell is overpowering + plastic bottle not great
I've had this oil for a few days now - I was motivated to buy it because of the 'best of' award it received from this site, and because I was about to run out of the face oil I currently use. Honestly I feel a little cheated. The smell is described as sublime but wow, is it strong and even though it's supposed to be natural, it has quite an artificial smell to me. It reminds me of 'old lady' creme moisturiser and lingers forever. I keep getting whiffs of it hours after I've used it. I use a lot of essential oils so maybe I'm just not used to the staying power of this one. Regardless I can't use this on my face, and am debating whether I can stand it on my hands either.
Also the bottle is plastic. It looks so cute in the photo - I thought it was glass :(
Ok so what about the oil itself? It does feel nice to be fair. Not sure what 'dry' oil means exactly - its just regular oil that absorbs real nice. Lots of oils do that. So since I've only had it for a couple days I'm not sure if its better than the oil I usually use. I'm 48 so I find oils on my face really suitable at this stage of life. I just wanted to shoot this review in quickly because I don't want anyone else to buy it without realising how strong the smell is and that it's in a plastic bottle.
