I bought this at Ulta because I was looking for something to transition to after I fell in love with Red Earth's Brighten Concentrate Oil With Kakadu Plum. I was obsessed with the Face Oil for awhile, but couldn't get behind the price. I'm so much more into skincare on a budget. I'm sure the high end is great for some and people swear by price being everything--you get what you pay for--yada yada yada but again I would have gotten more out of this $6 bottle than that $45 bottle. I have two different routines for night and day to keep my skin healthy. I have dry sensitive skin. And I use this face oil at night religiously after my cleanser and toner (for a toner I use one with AHA properties. Which is all about promoting the skin to self-exfoliate using natural ingredients). And then I go in with three drops of this face oil, rub it into my hands, make it warm, and then press it into my skin all my face. Then I go in with my moisturizer, eye cream, and sometimes a face sheet mask too--depending. But has definitely helped pretty much eliminate the dry patches I had between my brows, on forehead, my chin, and right below my jaw. I wouldn't say it completely took it away, but it really did help it out a ton. It feels very soft to the touch. There's no flaking anymore. The Ordinary is definitely worth it, and I would definitely say skincare on a budget.
