Reviews for 100% Cold Pressed Virgin Marula Oil
People say The Ordinary is really similar to Drunk Elephant.
Great for dry skin
We're are in the process of moving from the east coast to the west. My skin is sooooo dry and needed extra moisture. This did the trick! I apply at night on top of my moisturizer and wake up with glowy skin. It has helped with a rash on my chin due to dryness as well. In comparison to Drunk Elephant's marula oil, it's the exact same thing. Save yourself a lot of money and buy this for a fraction of the price!
The best dupe for the Drunk Elephant Marula Oil. And also 1/12th of the price. I'm obsessed with most of The Ordinary products. They have completely changed my skin. And I love using this product before bed when I want my skin to look extra plump and dewy the next morning.
I have been using this oil for about 6 months. I have a nut allergy, but didn't realize until I looked on the website that it isn't nut free, which is confusing since the only ingredient listed is a seed. I haven't had any irritation or issues though. I used to use drunk elephant Marula oil, but it was so expensive. This is the exact same thing with same benefits. I love using an oil at night.
Drunk Elephant Dupe!!
This oil is amazing and in my opinion, performs just like the Drunk Elephant marula that retails for $70 / oz. I love that TO sells these high quality items at affordable prices. This oil works great on its own, especially for treating sunburn, but I also love to mix it with TO's Resveratrol and Vitamin C serums at night. It's a great product and I'm so glad that Ulta is now carrying this line!
Lightweight for dry skin
I have super dry skin, like cover my face in olive and coconut oil and never break out dry. I can slather this on and it still manages to sink into my skin! I use it in the day time when I don't wha t to look like I'm covered in Vaseline (which is my go night time look). I'm sure there are cheaper sources, or bigger bottles, but I like getting my point and I'd much rather buy this the like 50$ drunk elephant one and
perfect dupe for my extremely dry skin!
i have autoimmune issues that make it very hard to feel properly hydrated, and it shows A LOT on my skin, especially my face. i used to use the drunk elephant marula oil and it worked miracles for my extremely dry skin, but i stopped getting it because i couldn't afford it. i'm so glad i stumbled upon this and gave it a try because it has seriously made all the difference and there has been major improvement. remember to always apply face oils AFTER moisturizer!!!
I've bought the drunk elephant marula oil two times before this one and I got tired of overpaying and I can't believe how amazing this is for the price! My skin is hydrated and soft and it absorbs really well. I feel like the drunk elephant marula oil was too heavy and this one is perfect
Straight dupe for drunk elephants marula oil, and if anything y'alls version of it sinks in to my skin better. A little heavy for my hair (I have fine hair) and completely expected that I mainly bought this for my skin.
Best for oily skin
I used the Marula brand Marula oil I got as a travel size in an Ipsy bag a year ago and I loved it, but couldn't justify the expensive price tag. Same with Drunk Elephant, heard great things but can't justify spending so much on one product. That's when I found this oil. Picked it up at Ulta and from day one I could feel my skin become so much more hydrated yet not clogging my pores. I have oily combo skin, oily in my t zone and cheeks but my temples and around the outer perimeter of my face and jaw I'm so dry I have dry patches like crazy. This moisturizes my face to the point my face feels plump and hydrated yet not overly heavy and oily. My t zone is producing less oil as a result and my dry patches have disappeared. I will never buy another Marula oil, especially for the price, under $10!!! Thank you The Ordinary!
Best Marula Oil on the Market
This is my favorite Marula oil, much better than Drunk Elephant's overpriced oil. This feels so luxurious and moisturizing on the skin. You can also use this on your eyebrows and lashes as a nighttime treatment.
I patch tested...
I patch tested this on a part of my face and unfortunately my skin did not react well to it. I woke up with a slight bit of congestion. Yet, I'm still giving this 10 stars because it is so very good for my hair. My hair is thick and curly and lately has been incredibly dry. I tried everything: olaplex treatment (the at home treatment is so time consuming and expensive for my waist length hair), different kinds of oil, every expensive and non expensive treatment sold in drugstores--nothing worked until this little beauty. I finally have my hair back. I use a few drops on damp hair and it keeps my hair feeling soft for days. And for this price, I don't mind using it on my hair...if I was to be drunk and order a very expensive marula oil there is no way I ever would have used it on my hair so I am so happy I found this!
