And if you still have some leftover, apply some on your eyelashes to help condition them and lengthen over time, it also makes for an excellent lip balm
This is not cheap…I paid 40 USD on Ebay...I have to say that I love this product…but perhaps my facial skin is truly not dry enough to receive the full benefits of this product, so i have started using it on my body and it is excellent, however really too much for Summer…I do however have a lot of respect for this product and i am curious to try the liquid oil product from this brand as it is suppose to be the lightest product available from the range and see if I can use it as a facial oil and most importantly as a hair treatment product in comparison to and in replacement of an Argan oil based product…..having said that…I am sticking with my Ojon original treatment as a must have for Hair.
My final recommendation for people who have severely dry skin to try this product as i think this is where you would get the most benefits from it…people with oily to slightly dry skin…may find it too much…even though the product itself is very light and spreads immediately on contact…i find that it stays on top of my skin for hours without being greasy however…and this is not the feeling that I personally like.
