I am sooo excited to be reviewing this incredible Marula Oil today for you!
I have been drooling over this stuff through my laptop for months and months and months. Not only is this face oil absolutely amazing, but there is much to be said for what’s behind the production and sourcing of this face oil.
The Leakey Collection was started by the Leakeys in 2002 as a way to help local Kenyans get sustainable entrepreneurial opportunities. With the idea of bringing the powers of pure marula oil to women around the world, they’ve been able to give many Kenyans an ethical source of income that does not interfere with their life or culture. To learn more about their amazing journey and collaboration with Dr. Ashton Kaidi, read more here. You can also learn more about the harvesting process here.
Aside from their incredible program, their pure Marula Oil is truly amazing.
I normally wouldn’t review a product before using it for at least a few weeks, but after using this for nearly a week, I already notice the incredible hydrating properties of this lovely oil. It’s unlike any other oil I’ve ever tried because it’s extremely moisturizing without being the least bit oily. It soaks into the skin straight away and leaves no residue behind. Plus, unlike a lot of oils I’ve tried, this one has a really nice subtle scent. It’s like a very soft citrus smell or something, but it’s not overpowering; it’s just calming and beautiful. I noticed that even after only a week my skin was more hydrated without being super oily and not a breakout in sight! I also feel like this face oil lends a bit of soft vibrancy to my skin. It’s also really great as a primer if you want your foundation to look velvety and a bit dewy.
This is definitely one to check out, not only for it’s great beauty benefits, but also for the humanity and sustainability behind the product and company itself.
