100% pure marula oil from Fourth Ray.
Marula Oil is harvested from the kernels of the Marula tree fruit, and is fantastic for dry and dehydrated skin. The oil is rich in vitamins C, E and anti-oxidants.
You all know that I swear by Argan Oil and use it all year round. During winter, I step up the oils in my skincare routine and mix in an additional drop of marula oil.
The Fourth Ray Beauty Marula Oil is 100% pure, and is not diluted with other ingredients.
The Marula Oil has the same packaging as Fourth Ray’s Argan Oil. It’s packaged with a dropper dispenser. To get the oil out of the bottle, simply remove the cap, turn the bottle upside down, after 2 seconds, the oil should come out of the bottle. When I first got this oil, I made the mistake of vigorously shaking the bottle to get the oil out. Turned out that was not necessary at all.
You can apply this oil like any other face oil – mix 1 or 2 drops into a moisturiser, or pat onto to the skin after moisturiser.
After applying this, skin feels supple and nourished. There is a dewy glow, but more subtle compared to argan oil. It also feels very lightweight, much lighter than other oils.
Due to the fact it’s a pure oil, it may not mix well with foundation (depending on the foundation formula). If you plan to use the Marula Oil as part of your morning skincare routine, I would highly recommend a patch test first.
It’s important to note that like many skincare ingredients, there are different types of marula oil available on the market. Ideally, you should try to get a cold-pressed and organic oil, as they would have higher concentrations of vitamins and anti-oxidants. Drunk Elephant has this version. But if you don’t have the budget for Drunk Elephant, Fourth Ray Beauty’s version is a lot more affordable.
When it comes to storing face oils, make sure to store them in a cool, dark area, away from sunlight.
