I bought this product because I have been reading about the benefits of using oils as a moisturizer. I really liked the feel of this oil and the fact that it absorbs well enough for me to be able to wear make-up on top of it (I just need to be careful to use a small enough amount). And it makes the skin feel so smooth! I have combination skin with quite severe acne at the moment and I think this oil works better for me than the countless oil free lotions someone with my skin is adviced to use. This oil is food grade though, so after I bought this bottle I decided to try the cold pressed avocado oil from Hobe Labs which is cosmetic grade quality. And it was such a difference! So if you are using avocado oil as a moisturizer, I advice you to buy that one instead.

For most people this is probably great, but it makes me itch.
Heavy oil, use alone

Nice and thick oil, but caused breakouts if used with other creams or oils. Should be used alone, or diluted if reactive, sensitive skin.
clear oil....no avocado smell though

I'm used to using baby oil so this was a bit of a switch. Smell isn't great, but its not unpleasant and it gives a thicker layer than baby oil just after I've showered before I dry off. Bottle was really small though so that was disappointing.

I wanted to try this for a night time moisturizer. I don't think it works too well for that. It doesn't seem to be absorbed easily. I do like it on my hands and arms.
Not the darker green kind I was expecting

I was expecting the green thick avocado oil that I've read is cold or expeller pressed. This is much thinner and lighter than it should have been. It is a good moisturizer but nothing to write home about. This is the first thing I've ordered that has not been just wonderful.
Leaky bottle, great oil

Great oil, but the bottle was leaky! I have to set it on a tissue 24/7 or it'll leak over whatever surface I have it on. That's a bit of a bother, but I like the way this stuff makes my skin feel.
Smells quite bad..
