It takes time to get used to the weird, herb smell but only a second to fall in love with the oil. I have quite oily skin but my skin chapped after exfoliating in winter. Nothing helped until I found this oil. Only two times of makeup removing with it, I got back my healthy look and even better balanced skin. The blackhead is much less, the surface is very smooth, and my face is luminous without being too oily. I also use this oil to spot clean my natural hair foundation brushes. I love this product!
