Now that we have the ingredients out of the way let’s get on with the review. Which not be lengthy, I promise.
I first use this on my skin because of how thick this oil feels on my palms. It’s super wonderful. It helps to soften the really dry and parched skin on my legs that looks like chicken feet. Uninteresting at all. But when I do the math, it’s quite a prices product to use for body oil so I used it sparingly.
I also tried it on my hair, can’t say that I like the feel. I rather use either almond oil or virgin coconut oil for the face. It feels to dry yet oily on the hair.
Next, I tried applying it directly to the face. Wow it feels so thick. That coming from face oil like yours truly speaks volume. I love the result, my skin does feel soft, especially after applying Retinol. But I don’t like the feel on the skin. However, when I mix it on my moisturiser it feels like it gives my moisturiser a booster that it works wonderful on the skin and let it hydrate my skin all day long and sort of gives a nice glow to the face.
Moral of the story? If you don’t have a multipurpose oil, you might want to give this a try because it’s easily available in Indonesia and Sociolla for Rp 295,000 (50ml). It doesn’t do anything specific really. I love it best when I have dry skin on my body. But it will come handy especially when travelling where you don’t want to bring to many things at once.
