Marula The Leakey Collection Customer ReviewsOrdered in error but will keep. - 8/27/2014 4:57:23 AM Unfortunately, I ordered the lotion in error. I actually wanted the original oil, but was pleasantly surprised at how my very reactive and sensitive and skin took to the product. lt's not heavy and perfect for the summer. I use it at night over a prescription product for my rosacea.Just ordered my second bottle. - 3/5/2013 6:26:39 PM This is great stuff and I'm not an oil lover. It has considerably reduced the fine lines around my eyes. My skin loves it and for the first winter in forever, no dry skin on my face!! I use one dropper-full for my face (and neck) after thoroughly cleansing my face with my Clarisonic each evening... gently massage in without pulling at your skin. It's a great product and I love that it is helping women in South Africa.So far so good! - 2/23/2013 8:30:32 PM I hadn't really had too many problems with breakouts, but lately for the last couple months I seemed to always wake up every few days with a single large breakout. I ran into a friend who normally has somewhat problematic skin, and she was looking radiant! She let me in on Marula Oil. I got a sample and started using in conjunction with my normal Suki skincare line products/Clairsonic. I haven't broken out since! I'm still waiting for more evening of the skin tone/redness relief, and it does feel a bit greasy going on, but if it prevents me from breaking out and keeps me hydrated...I'm sold!On second bottle - 2/7/2013 1:16:13 PM I am 67 snd have good genes so not sure there is any product out there that really delivers - hard to tell, but I Love this product! I used the first bottle am & pm which is probably not necessary, so now I alternate. If I use retinol product at night, I use Marula Oil in the a.m. alternating days with a serum & moisturizer. As soon as my other a.m. products are gone I will probably switch to this exclusively (plus sunscreen - never go out without it). I can't swear to this, but a small cyst near my fingernail that I've had for two years and considered surgery because it disfigured the nail (I have great nails) has disappeared and the nail is back to normal. I'm thinking that this is a result of massaging the oil into my hands & cuticles every time I use the oil; also very soothing on a few dermatitis patches. I found less expensive Marula Oil products on line, after reading another comment, so I might try that next time. For now I'm hooked and like the fact that it pays it forward to the women in East Africa. The only cons are price and you simply cannot travel with it - very leaky bottle (a little accidental humor). One last observation...in my first bottle the oil was perfect, clear, lovely. The oil in the second bottle is cloudy. I do not live in a cold climate so not sure why. Smells & feels just fine however.Love this - 12/19/2012 4:09:53 PM I am 50 yrs old and I am always looking for ways to keep my skin looking good. I have combination skin and this oil absorbs into skin and is not greasy. I have been using it for about 3weeks and love it.Flawless - 9/29/2012 11:21:02 AM I've been using this oil for 5 days and I haven't looked this radiant in 10years! It's amazing. I have sensitive skin that is prone to breakouts and every oil I've tried in the past makes me either get a rash or breakout. Not so with Marula. My skin is soft, no longer flakey and it has healed up the remainder of a breakout, in just 5 days! Wish there were more from this company. It's fantastic!Skin Never Looked Better! - 5/29/2012 10:18:06 AM This oil is so amazing! The texture and scent are divine. My skin is radiant and the healthiest it has ever looked. I love it.I love this oil - 5/9/2012 8:04:49 PM I am a big fan of Marula Oil. I have never used oils on my face because I had visions of baby oil and greasy residue. But a friend convinced me to try it. This oil really penetrates quickly and I love the scent. I use it at night and I will use it with my Oil of Olay face cloth. Then I add just a drop in my foundation in the morning.

Alleviate the effects of the years and improve the texture and tone of your skin with Marula The Leakey Collection, a highly effective natural treatment that also helps improve the lives of African women.
The Marula The Leakey Collection Omega Rich Pure Marula Oil is a fair trade skin care treatment produced from the fruit of the East African Marula tree. The oil has long been used in natural medicinal practices to heal the skin and improve its appearance, but traditionally, the precious oil has been difficult to obtain in its pure form. This marula oil is drawn from fruit gathered by hand that has fallen from marula trees growing naturally around rural villages in Africa. Because of its origins, the oil is incredibly pure. All that has been added to the formula is a blend of natural extracts that improve the scent of the oil, and these additional oils account for only 1 percent of the total volume of the product.
Marula oil is rich in antioxidants and omega 9 fatty acid. In fact, the oil has more of these nutrients than grapeseed and argan oils, which are traditionally used in anti-aging skin care products. The antioxidants and fatty acids help to stimulate collagen production, neutralize free radicals and even fade hyperpigmentation. The emollient properties of marula oil allow it to normalize hydration levels in the skin tissue, fighting dryness while soothing irritation caused by environmental stressors. The oil is intended for use once per day after cleansing.
