Fantastic packaging, all recycled and recyclable. Held the product well and there would be little to no concern for any orders I might place in the future about whether the product would arrive in one piece! It smelt divine as I opened the packaging. It’s a good concept, especially the dosha aspect and it is the correct dosha for me too! It’s a good design, although it could do with being more recyclable (the dropper cannot be recycled although it is possible it could be reused). Instructions simple and easy to follow. Very easy to use. The oil soaked in nicely and my skin didn’t feel greasy at all. My skin was soft and supple after application and that feeling lasted all day. After catching the sun a little recently my skin was sensitive and this did soothe it nicely. I did not need a lot to obtain desired coverage.  Two or three drops were enough to cover my face and neck. After using this skin feels supple and soft, I’ve experienced reduced irritation from catching the sun recently and even after gardening in the sun and wind, my skin didn’t feel dry or stretched. Genuinely, I’m not sure if it has given me a more youthful look, but I suspect years of neglect will take more than a couple of weeks to reverse. However, I am very impressed with how soft and supple my skin feels and how hydrated it feels. It’s not feeling stretched or dry at all (a concern as I get older). After using this my skin definitely feels better. I think that continued use over time is likely to improve the look of fine lines. This certainly made my skin fee beautifully soft. The aroma was lovely.  Reminded me of my husband’s beard oil (I think that’s to do with the sandalwood) so quite a masculine scent but it is one I like. I used this daily, aimed for twice but more often than not, once! I noticed an improvement almost immediately. Genuinely, my skin was so soft and smooth after I’d first used it (and I hadn’t even cleansed and toned at that point!). I was happy with the final result and I will continue to use it going forward too. The oil felt light and the scent/aroma doesn’t smell artificial. The organic and animal welfare credentials of the product go a long way to adding to the quality of the item. This represents great value. You use very little per application and as time goes on I’ve used a little less but still achieved the same results. I loved everything about this product. The delivery packaging is well thought out, effective and environmentally friendly. The product itself is well packaged and does what it says it does and it smells divine. I will purchase because I like the price, the concept, the aroma, what it does for my skin and the environmental/animal welfare credentials. I would recommend, although I would always recommend them to check they’re purchasing for the correct dosha via the website. It’s decent value for money, it produces good results and it smells divine. It also sits in with a range of other products that would complement it and I suspect enhance its efficacy. The product is based on an ancient concept and it fulfils its claims nicely whilst being environmentally friendly, animal welfare conscious and not too expensive. If it continues to work well for my skin and make my skin look and feel younger then I am quite likely to purchase additional products from the range and continue to use this product. Liz Fowle

Loved the bottle, colours on the bottle. I was sceptical at first thinking it would leave my face oily however I couldn’t have been more wrong.  I absolutely love this and this is now my go to instead of my normal face cream. The colours are very soothing and calming. Easy to follow instructions. Extremely easy to use, the applicator bottle makes for quick and easy use with no mess. This oil goes straight into the skin without leaving it oily. My skin feels amazingly soft and the smell is divine.  I use 2/3 drops which was ideal. I suffer with dry skin but since using this oil my skin has been left feeling soft and looking more refreshed. This definitely gave me a more youthful look. I have even had people ask if I have had Botox. My skin looks and feels fresher and younger. I absolutely love the smell, especially when applying at night as I find it very therapeutic. I used this everyday morning and night. After a few days I started notice that my skin was not as dry. Extremely happy with results and I will be purchasing more.  As I am only using 2/3 drops this oil lasts 4 times longer than my face cream. Amazing quality, I even have my partner using it now. Yes it lasts forever and is actually cheaper than most branded face creams and this oil is of a lot better quality. I loved the feel on my skin, the smell and the quality. I will be buying more.  I already have recommended. Fantastic product and real value for money. Quick and easy to use and completely mess free.  Leaves skin feeling soft and smooth and given me a more youthful look. The smell is amazing, really calming and soothing. Stephanie Rolfe

Simply packaged with clear instructions.  Nice idea to have oil suitable for normal and dry skin. The design of the bottle was OK but I found using the pipette I was getting more that 3 drops out at a time.  The instructions are clear and easy to understand. Easy enough to use, but would have been better if only a few drops came out at a time. I found this did not soak into my skin very well and left my skin feeling greasy. My skin felt fresh and it did help dry areas on my face but made greasy parts of my face greasier. With this oil you do not need to use a lot.  I think it helped the dry areas of my face to feel more hydrated.  I do not think it has given me a more youthful look but I have not used it for long so maybe after using for quite a while it may make a difference.  Personally I do not feel this oil had made my skin look any different. However on my dry skin areas it did make a slight difference.  Personally I did not like the aroma of this oil. I only used this a few times as the aroma was not appealing to me. I liked the simplicity of the packaging and the clear easy to read instructions.  For me personally this was not an effective oil to use and therefore does not represent good value.  I really liked the simplicity of the box and the instructions for use and what the product was for. Unfortunately for me it is not a product I like and won’t be using or buying again. It left areas of my skin greasier than normal but did help with dry skin patches.  Lisa Duffill
