4.0 5  Pretty good

Works relatively well, was hoping for more of a apricot scent. I have really dry skin so I use it soley as a body lotion. Absorbs really quickly, little is needed. I would of liked for it to maintain the moisture to my skin a little longer, I apply in the morning and before bed. I'm thinking of adding some jojoba to further moisturize my skin.

recommend  Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

5.0 5  for mature skin

I find this one of the heavier oils that is really good for mature skin that is normal to dry. Adds lots of moisture. I use alone, in a blend, added to body butters.

recommend  Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

4.0 5  Used in cream/salve

I recently used this as part of a stretch mark salve/cream. I really like it so far. I noticed it said to refrigerate once opening so be sure to do that. I didn't because I made tons of the cream to keep and give away....Ended up using all 2 oz!

recommend  Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

5.0 5  I like it!

I've had this one sitting in my fridge for awhile and finally got around to trying it out this past month. I do like it - but honestly, I still prefer coconut, avocado, or jojoba oil for most of the things I use a carrier for. Still, this oil absorbs quickly, doesn't leave the skin feeling heavy or sticky, and doesn't irritate sensitive facial skin (or at least it didn't irritate mine or my daughters!) So even though it's not my first pick, it's stick a great oil and it will definitely get all used up!

recommend  Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
