I was recently given a gift of Marula oil with an effective usage demonstration from a glowing 70-year old woman who slathered a few drops across her remarkably fresh-looking skin. I went home and began using marula oil every night after washing my face. I give it two thumbs up for moisturizing and plumping up skin. My skin has been looking seriously young.
Marula oil is fast-absorbing and high in oleic acid. Free of free of preservatives, synthetics and parabens, it penetrates the skin and provides for lasting hydration.
It’s not just me who has noticed that my 44-year old skin is looking exceptionally good. Last month my husband and I hit the nightclubs in Tel Aviv. My 32-year old brother was warning us that we might not get in past the velvet rope line. I had visions of that scene in “Knocked Up” where Katherine Heigl and Leslie Mann try to go out to a nightclub and the bouncer rejects them with the line, “I can’t let you in! You older than the earth!” (It’s one of my all-time favorite movie monologues!) I was fully prepared to be sent away. Instead, I breezed up to the front of the long line and was waved through immediately. Hah!
Once inside the club, my brother’s friends – both guys and girls – guessed I was younger than my brother when it is he who is twelve years younger than I am. Pretty cool, I must say.
Ok, part of this I have to chalk up to my Jazzercise habit, but the skin on my face is not giving me away, either. Maybe it’s the marula oil?
Try it yourself.

Sounds like an interesting product for someone with mature skin in the northeast US. Wondering what it smells like? That’s my issue with a lot of products. Love hearing about healthier products and cosmetics – thanks!
I totally understand; I have a pile of products I won’t use because the artificial fragrance is pervasive and intolerable. On the other hand, the aroma of Marula oil is very light and not at all cloying. There is no additional fragrance added. If anything, it reminds me of the smell of a high quality olive oil, but not nearly so heavy. The light aroma of marula oil does not bother me at all, and any scent is gone within a minute or so of applying.
