Miraculous Marula Oil

Using oil on our faces has become quite popular lately, but for good reason — facial oils can improve hydration levels, elasticity and overall skin quality.  I recently tried ACURE’s Marula Oil, which is 100% pure and wildcrafted without pesticides. If you’re familiar with argan or jojoba oil, marula oil is less heavy than argan and more similar to jojoba.

What is marula and where does it come from? The Marula tree is in the same family (Anacardiaceae) as the cashew, mango, and pistachio nut and is indigenous to Southern Africa.

The great thing about marula oil is that it works well for all skin types.  Aside from using it on my face and neck to moisturize and prevent fine lines, I’ve also loved using it as a split-end treatment and eye makeup remover.  When using the oil on your face or hair, a few drops go a long way so this bottle really lasts and is super reasonable at $15.99. The fact that it has no odor makes it an excellent choice for sensitive skin and/or sensitive noses.

It’s also nice to know that purchasing ACURE’s Marula Oil supports The Marula Project, which provides economic empowerment to the South African women who harvest and process the oil.
