Questions & Answers for Nude Skincare ProGenius™ Treatment Oil

Question
Acne-prone skin, would this make it worse?
My skin is extremely oily, and from what I'm told, it's because it's dehydrated so it overproduces oil to compensate. One of the girls at my local Sephora recommended a facial oil to help balance things out.
I have very acne-prone skin though, and I'm worried this will make it worse. Has anyone here with acne tried this before?
I'd like to get the sample size with my points to try it. I'm thinking of using it overnight then sticking with my regular moisturizer during the day.

This will absolutely combat the oily skin you have. I have combination skin, and while I'm not prone to breakouts, this has calmed my oil production considerably. What you have to think about is that your skin regenerates itself every 28 days, so for the first week or so, you may have a stray pimple or even a breakout, but if you continue to use it, it will continue to work its magic. It's like any medicine, it gets worse before it gets better, but when it gets better, it's amazing! Just make sure that you press it onto your face, only using two to three drops of oil, and make sure that you warm it up between your fingertips first. Using a lot of product will negate the effects and just increase the oil on your skin. And be sure to moisturize after!

I have extremely oily skin and I am very pleased with this product. Oil production has decreased considerably and I have not had an acne breakout in weeks. I began using at night only, but have now included daytime use. I use less during the day because I use a sunscreen as well.

No! I have extremely oily skin as well and found out that it is because my skin is actually DRY and over-producing oil. If you use oil on your face, it will make it less oily. Sounds weird? I don't think so.

No. But with every product it also depends on the user's skin. I have combo skin and this did not break me out, or cause me to be greasy. In fact my skin was less greasy. Strange, but you should at least give it a try.

I totally hear you because I couldn't wrap my head around using an "oil" on my oily skin, but I too was told that my skins been dehydrated and is producing more oil because of it. I decided to take the advice given by the very nice associate at Sephora, and one of the estheticians I work with, and I'm glad I did. I have always had acne prone skin, and only since my mid 20's was it ever oily. I think all the years of harmful and stripping acne products disturbed the balance in my skin. From using this (night & day under moisturizer) and the Nude oil cleanser (night) and the Nude purifying daily cleanser with clarisonic brush(day), my skin is literally flawless. Even textured, radiant, smooth, poreless and dare I say OIL FREE! I never thought I'd see the day! I noticed a difference right away and have continued to have great results. I'm also using the purifying daily moisturizer and toning water. So I'd definitely give it a try. Good luck to you!

If you have oily skin you can use this in place of your moisturizer. I recommend using this at night only and your regular moisturizer in the morning. This is an essential oil so it acts as your body's natural oil thus it wont break you out or cause you to be more oily. This will also help balance your skin out if you have really oily skin.

answer 9
I have oily skin as well and I am prone to breakouts, especially around my chin. I also break out fairly easily from products. I use this at night after I wash my face and don't put on anything else afterwards. In the morning my pimples are smaller and less red, and there are no new ones. My skin isn't oily and it is very even toned. I tried mixing it with my daytime moisterizer and it made my skin look very oily all day, so I wouldn't recommend using it during the day. However, using it at night as an overnight hydrating facial has worked amazingly for me and I highly recommend you at least get a sample of this and try it. I saw a difference after the first time using it! I hope this helps :)

You can use this day or night and I'd recommend to use it under your moisturizer. Whenever in doubt use your skincare products from thinnest consistency to thickest. Also, your moisturizer will help lock in the oil for longer hydration. If you have combination to oily skin you probably can just use this in place of a moisturizer.

I bought teh Argan oil to use on my face after tried in store.
Not loving it...but great for my hair and my cuticles.

Just got a sample of the ProGenius (recommended by a TOO FACED MUA). Over the last week I have been applying under eyes...AND
the creppyness that I have been trying to address is really starting to go away! I had some minor 'bumps' on my cheeks the night before I tried it for the first time...by morning they were gone.

Going to use up my sample and make a decision then.

I agree that this product is better. I have been using a lot of high end skin care products and I find that this is has been the best purchase I have made in a very long time. It does wonders for fine lines, it plumps and moisturizes and a little goes a very long way. If you can tolerate it around your eye area I would even recommend using it under your eye cream. Use it under a facial moisturizer with hyaluronic acid (absorbs water and plumps up the skin) if you have dry/aging skin and you will see a real difference. It is AMAZING!!! I have started using Josie Maran for other areas of my body and in my hair since I came upon this as there is just no comparison.

I personally found that the Josie Maran oil clogged my pores, did not sink into my skin, and just generally was not a great product (I ended up using it in my hair as a decent substitute for Moroccan Oil). The ProGenius oil is anti-aging and sunk deep into my skin. I apply it before sleep, and when I wake up, my skin is brighter, more even, and smooth. It does an amazing job as acting like a filler and plumping up the lines around your mouth, on your forehead, and between your eyes. I highly recommend it, because although it is pricey, it saves you the cost of the seriously expensive anti-aging creams you would need to use in addition to the Josie Maran formulation.

Thank everyone for the answers... Have found my skin, though not seemingly dry, is absorbent enough to soak this stuff up within a 1/2 hour, so I use it first and wait until absorbed, then apply moisturizer. Other nights I use Retin-A Micro-gel so I need something like this to really add some hydration.
Thanks again for answering my question!

I've used the NUDE oil and Tarte oil, and I can say the NUDE oil is way way better. The Tarte oil is decent, and I think I may opt to use it on my body (since it's much cheaper) but the NUDE oil shows overnight/amazing results. The Tarte oil just delivers decent results (i.e. moisturizing and doesn't clog my pores), plus, it smells like cooking oil, while the NUDE oil has a lighter oil scent.

No, there is no added luminosity or tint. It's also not a dry oil so it does look like (clear) oil when applied to the skin. If you want a bit of oily sheen, apply it last, over everything else (including makeup) to the areas you want to highlight. It's not a highlighter though - it's a face oil and will sink in eventually.
