I use it daily, have combo skin, large pores. Prone to white heads and breakouts. I spray my face with clean, cold bottled water first, and apply a few drops on face and neck. The water preps the skin, holds in moisture and disperses the Boscia more evenly. It seems to stabilize the sebum in my pores, makes them tighten, lightens and brightens the skin, evens texture. It acts more like a serum so I use it as a base every day over which I apply more intense products for specific areas (eyes, lips moisturizers). Also, it makes a great overnight treatment alone every so often. I've used it for about 6 months and love it. Tried every other oil, and they were too heavy. A great oil for detoxing skin overnight is Caudelie's Detox Oil. I use it almost nightly. (Most of Caudelie's other products are too heavy for my skin, but the detox oil is amazing for clearing redness and preventing clogs.)
Yes! Using oil will actually decrease the amount of oil your skin naturally produces. Boscia's Beauty Oil is fantastic. The easiest way to use it is to mix a couple drops with your moisturizer in the morning and at night.
I have oily skin and it totally works for me. Just wait a few minutes before applying your make up
I am nearing 30 myself I have very oily skin (although a dry forehead, very irritating) it takes a couple of weeks for the oil to start working but my forehead is moisturized and the rest of my face returning more to normal. It has really helped with breakouts too. I am a huge fan, just make sure you give it a little time and you can always put it on at night for the first little while until your skin is used to it, also make sure to put it on just washed damp skin for best results.
GREAT for oily skin!! You can actual fight oil with oil. The last thing you want to do is try and dry your skin out when you have oily skin. That only causes you to have more oil. If you give your skin oil, it calms down and realizes it doesn't need to produce so much of it. Thats why I think this oil would be perfect for you. It's not heavy at all, you won't feel like an oil slick. It's such a luxurious feeling and just the right amount. It will make a difference for you!
I have combination skin and the oil has definitely helped in reducing my oiliness. I use a few drops with my moisturizer and end up with a semi-matte radiant glow. Plus, the oil has helped reduce the small breakouts I'd normally experience.
I just turned thirty and am really paying attention to my skin. I've been tool by so many people that oily skin is a result of your body trying to overcompensate for being dry- seems counterintuitive but I have that sort of skin! After I wash it it is tight and dry and I hate the idea of applying oil control products on my face as that makes it feel even worse. So I decided I had nothing to loose by trying an oil moisturizer... Using oil should stop my skin from trying to over produce and maybe get back to a normal balance... I'm happy to say that it did just that. I'll still get a midday shine but it is nowhere as bad as it was prior to using this product. I love it.
