I am the ideal candidate for Evening Primrose oil, as I am 68, with thin, papery, Nordic skin, further dried out by hypothyroidism. I dislike lotions and creams that stay on the skin's surface and leave oily residue on clothing, etc. instead of being absorbed by the skin and benefiting it. This oil spreads thinly and evenly on damp skin and is completely absorbed in a short time. The pleasant scent does not linger. What I love is that after use, my skin still feels like my skin -- minus the flakes, the crusting of minor scrapes that should not have become injuries in the first place, and the crepeyness. When my skin needs a touch-up, more of this oil does not cause a build up at all. My skin has always been a problem, and I have researched and created many potions for it. Weleda's Evening Primrose oil is better than any of my (admittedly good) creations. Wish it were more economical. I may have to stretch it with carrier oil(s).
