Deeply moisturising, our organic avocado oil is one of the best oils for soothing dry skin and can even help to soften rough patches, such as elbows and heels. Naturally rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, there are a multitude of benefits to using avocado oil for skin, body, and hair.

Added this to a recent facial oil formulation and it fits beautifully in the formula and has a lovely, rejuvenating and silky effect on the skin.
This cold pressed, top quality oil is extremely nourishing to the skin - especially dry skin. Packaged in a light protecting blue bottle, this oil will keep for a couple of months in a cool, dry place. When used as a face oil, it soothes and replenishes essential lipids, allowing skin to be more hydrated and moisturised. I use it at night especially in the winter months and can highly recommend it. It won't suit everyone and I can only speak from my own experience but this, like all Neals Yard oils, is excellent in it's quality and efficacy and well deserved of 5 stars.
Overall VERY hydrating, a bit heavy on the skin so you need to pretty much have dryyy skin for this to suit well on your face once you apply. I LOVE THIS as my face always needs a lot of comfort & hydration after washing off heavy make-up in the evenings. This can burn the eyes just a bit, which not all face oils do, so be careful to not rub too much over eyelids. The only low point I can think of here is the scent. It's great because it is clearly natural so nothing glamorous has been added to enhance the smell, but at the same time the smell will not be as pleasant as a rose oil for example. Just takes some time to get used to!
