The Better Oil

I have been mixing The Better Oil with Mr. Reliable. I do this at night and in the morning my skin is so soft and smooth. I always thought oils would cause me to break-out. This product does not irritate my skin.

Good Oil - Bad Smell

This oil works great as a moisturizer. It doesn’t break me out (I use the Biba de Souza pore clogger checker and it passed the ingredient check). But, in order to use it, I had to accept that my face will smell like fish. Another reviewer posted the same thing, and it’s true. My don’t like the smell of fish, but until I find another oil that passes the pore clogger test, I will continue to smell like a…..mermaid.

Fight the Dry

I use this at night, as in SoCA the air is always dry and soaks every ounce of moisture from my skin. It absorbs well and my skin feels soft in the morning. Love this product!

So lovely

I learned about Chemist Confessions from the Natch Beaut podcast and decided to give a few of their products a try. This oil is amazing on my dry, acne prone skin. I usually layer or mix it in with my moisturizer and am seeing great results. Would highly recommend trying it out!

Great except for slight initial stinging

I really like this product, and it does help hydrate my super dry skin, but for some reason it stings a bit when I first put it on. Though it doesn’t last long, it’s definitely concerning because that means there’s an ingredient (or more) that is irritating and can potentially be damaging. I read a few other reviews concerning irritation. I hope the ladies of CC can reformulate this oil so it’s better for sensitive skin!!
