Why people love it
  • Great option for people with sensitive skin
  • Oil absorbs quickly and instantly softens skin
  • Helps with dryness and evening out tone

We weren’t initially sold on the idea of using a nighttime oil as opposed to a night cream. However, having tested this one for some time now, we can attest to the skin softening and calming properties of the oil.

Some users complained of getting blackheads from the oil. When we tested this, we found something similar, but it wasn’t caused by the oil itself, it was more from switching between a retinol blackhead-busting cream to an oil.

Also, you can’t use this around your eyes. So, if you decide to go for it, you’ll have to do so in conjunction with an eye cream.


Benefits: If you’re looking to improve the overall look of your skin, this nighttime oil would be a great choice for you. All it takes is just a few drops to cover your face and you’ll wake up with softer and more evenly toned skin.

Skin Type: If you have oily or acne-prone skin to begin with, this isn’t going to be a great choice. It’s not that the oil makes your skin oily or causes it to break out; however, we’re not sure it would do anything to help skin that’s already prone to those conditions.

Price: We tested the smallest size—which was expensive enough on its own. However, you should also consider the cost of the eye cream you’ll inevitably need to go with this.
