The texture of this oil is thick (thicker than the AB’s Neroli Marula oil) and it has a strong scent to it; however, it does not linger that long! 2 drops is enough for my face. FYI this a face and body oil but since it is a very pricy oil, I do not recommend that you use it on your body! I apply it after Infusion, it’s not greasy and does not clog pores and gives a dewy finish. Looking at the ingredients you can see that how this oil is designed perfectly to keep the skin’s barrier healthy without clogging pores and causing inflammation or breakouts. Overall, it is a great oil suitable for all skin types, even acne prone skin. BTW the 100ml bottle, used occasionally, lasted about 2 years!
