I found this product after reading about the published findings of bakuchoil's ability to mimic the effects of retinol minus any negative side-effects. At first there was no noticeable difference from using this, of coarse you play the waiting game for any new product, but by week 3 my pigmentation had started to lighten-up, and the overall texture of my skin seems to have improved. I'm looking forward to seeing how this oil goes over time, but already I know I'll be ordering a second bottle. One limitation of the oil is you must shake quite vigorously each time you use it as the ingredients tend to separate. Other than that it sinks in quite quickly. I have not noticed any staining as the other reviewer suggested, but the smell is quite potent, something I had to get used to. All in all, amazing oil, with one of its ingredients that is next to impossible to find in Australia.
I bought this oil when I was reading up on the plant based retinol alternative bakuchoi. I like to support small businesses - especially skin care brands. It has quite a strong smell - earthy, but its not unpleasant. If you're sensitive to smell, you might not like it. You neec to shake bottle before each use. It has a 'medium to heavy' consistency - when compafed with other face oils. It feels nourishing. I didnt feel as though it absorbed very well. A layer definately sits on top of your skin. It also stains white bedding so i would recommend for use during the day or to mix one drop in with your nightime moisturiser. Anymore than that, it will stain. There are other face oils I prefer for face, so I've been using this on my body. Nice and nourising. If you have normal skin that is not prone to get clogged pores then this is worth a try.
This beautiful product has given my skin some life back. I purchased to correct my dull, lacklustre skin and it has delivered. I have been using it with the B5 Mist. Fab, will buy again.
