My Experience with The Ordinary 100% Cold-Pressed Virgin Marula Oil:
Recently, marula oil has been getting all the hype from the beauty industry. This rich African oil has taken the place of argan oil, rosehip oil, olive oil etc. I had really enjoyed using Drunk Elephant Marula Oil, but the cost is exponentially greater than the Ordinary Marula Oil.

The Ordinary 100% Cold-Pressed Virgin Marula oil comes packaged in a black glass dropper bottle with a white cap and a white cardboard outer box containing all the details about the product. The black glass bottle helps the product from photosensitivity. The packaging is similar to all other Ordinary products. The dropper is really good and dispenses the oil easily. Overall, the packaging is simple, basic and lightweight.

The Ordinary Marula oil has a lightweight texture. However, compared Drunk Elephant’s marula oil, it’s a bit heavy. I usually use this oil as the last step in my skin care regimen after applying serum and moisturizer. The oil gets absorbed into the skin quickly. Also, just a little goes a long way and it doesn’t leave my oily skin feeling congested or greasy.
I use 2-3 drops for my face and neck, which is enough for one-time use. If you use more oil, then it takes a lot of time to get absorbed. You can use this multipurpose oil on your face, on your damp hair or chapped lips to restore moisture.

This oil didn’t cause any breakouts on my skin. This oil has made my skin smooth and supple. It has moisturised my skin really well and has cleared my dry, winter skin. It has also given a nice healthy look to my hair. You can use this oil whenever you want, at day or night.
Overall, I am enjoying using this Ordinary’s 100% Cold Pressed Marula Oil.
