Andalou CannaCell Beauty Oil - review


This product was sent to me for review, and I'm pleased to say that I do quite like it and it's not too expensive so it's worth trying if you like Andalou as a brand.

Nevertheless, it's not my favourite and I likely wouldn't buy it for myself - purely because I've tried so many face oils and have a lot to compare it to. Still, it's decent and it's not too heavy so it should suit a range of skin types. More on that below.

I like this oil and I think it's reasonably priced (especially if you can find it on special), so it's a good one to try if you're in the market for a face oil that isn't too heavy or expensive. Nevertheless, it's not my favourite so I wouldn't buy it for myself because I have other oils I prefer.

It has a light scent (I smell citrus and hemp) that's not overpowering so it shouldn't bother most people. The texture isn't too thick or rich so I can see it suiting a range of skin types, and it applies and spreads well.

While I think some of it absorbs, some of it also sits on top of the skin and it does leave a residue behind so do be aware of that. I don't mind this because I have dry skin and find the residue to have a protective element, and I apply mine at night anyway so the residue doesn't bother me. I wouldn't apply this oil under makeup, though.

After use my skin feels hydrated but not too coated, and while I've used more hydrating/nourishing oils, this one's still quite good and it's the kind of product that's better for my skin in the warmer months when my face is less dry.

I like the weighty, sturdy packaging and I also like that the product comes with a pump, which makes it easy to use and less messy.

Overall I think this product is decent, and while it's not the best facial oil I've used, it's still good and it's not too expensive so it's one to consider. If you're after an alternative, The Ordinary does a good oil and I really enjoy Natural Instinct's Rejuvenating Rosehip Oil (reviewed here). All of these are reasonably priced and readily available, so they're worth trying if you're in the market for a face oil that doesn't break the bank.

Good but not my favourite.
