A friend of mine is a huge DHC fan and must own every single product they make so she gave me a gift basket of their products for my birthday in an effort to convert me. It didn't work. The first thing I noticed about this is that it doesn't smell like olive oil. It has a very subtle fragrance, but it's not olive-y or like you spread vegetable oil on your face. It's actually quite pleasant. The application was quite easy but it takes absolutely forever to soak in. The first time I used it I thought I would actually have to go and wash it off because it would never soak in! You definitely cannot use this right before bed or you'll get oil on your sheets and pillow. I have oily to combination skin and I was sure my skin would freak out if I added more oil to my skin but surprisingly it didn't. My skin behaved very nicely and didn't break out or anything. I really like how it moisturized deeply as well. You could still feel soft, moisturized skin the next day. Ultimately, I had to stop using this on my face because of the sheer amount of time that it takes to absorb, but I still use it as a wonderful cuticle oil! It keeps my cuticles looking great all year round!
