Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only a mild inoffensive smell I almost didn’t buy this oil because of the reviews about the smell. I have a sensitive nose and can’t stand the smell of perfume or essential oils. I hardly noticed a smell at all! Doesn’t bother me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great.... but the smell! When I bought this, I thought for the price how could I go wrong? It works incredibly well as a oil, but I couldn’t get over the smell. Ended up giving it to a friend would could handle the smell! Only giving it a low score because I ultimately couldn’t use it. If I could have gotten over the smell it would be 5 stars!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favourite face oil This is my go to face oil. I have tried several other face oils but keep coming back to the ordinary boarge seed oil. I have purchased this at least five times. The texture is a bit thicker than a dry oil and is great when used at night after toner and lighter serums (marine hylaronic and some aloe vera gel).

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Borage oil Wanted so badly to love this product, but the smell was so off-putting that I couldn't stand to put it on my face more than three times. One of my co- workers asked me if I could smell something rancid when we were standing apart from each other, and I knew without question that it was my face oil. The scent is like rotting food. It doesn't seem to fade after a while either, so you must be prepared to smell it all day as long as you use it. Blech!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great - but the odour is off-putting I purchased this for my combination skin - i used it after the hydrating formula - and found the smell was VERY overpowering. I put a drop of essential oils with it now to combat it. I can see why companies mixed different kinds of oils together now! It can be a bit greasy and doesn't absorb very quick, but it found my skin liked it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The smell makes me nauseous Like lots of customers already mentioned this oil smells bad. I was aware of this when I purchased the product but I thought I could mask the smell with a very thin layer of nice smelling facial cream. But no, it didn't work, I could still smell it. I'm going to give this oil away since the smell makes me nauseous.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just started using it but so far yay! I bought this because I wanted to try some moisturizer that was natural. I love this product so far and despite the reviews I notice barely any scent at all. My only issue with the product is that it leaves your skin looking oily even after leaving it on overnight. Its oil so its to be expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Thought I should post a review since i read several negative reviews about the smell and still bought it. They must have reformulated because it’s pretty scentless overall and a great moisturizer. I use it on my belly for pregnancy . And it helps alot.
