REVIEW: 100% Pure Montana Emu Oil

Packaging - 3 (average)
Hydration - 6 (incredible)
Pore Care - 1 (bad)
Longevity - 5 (excellent)

 UPDATED: When I first wrote this review I had been using the Emu oil for 2 weeks and this was my new favorite thing in my beauty regimen. I could not say enough good things about Emu Oil. That has changed and the rating has been adjusted.

The packaging of this Emu oil is a 3. It isn't high end looking, in fact I think it looks like a cheap bargain item. Regardless it comes in a sturdy glass packaging (I dropped it MULTIPLE times) and has a functional dropper lid that I love. But it doesn't seal unless you twist it TIGHT so if it gets knocked on it's side it's a mess.

This stuff HYDRATES. My skin has never felt so soft or been less flaky. On top of that I expected it to clog my pores and make me break out. At first it didn't and I was so happy, but then I started noticing black heads on my nose, which is something I have never had struggles with. I changed up a few other things in my routine (because I am constantly trying new skin care) and went back to my "normal" baseline regimen, which now included the oil. My skin got worse and worse. As soon as I stopped using the oil, my skin got WAY better. It is definitely a pore clogging product.

A little goes a super long way. It WILL break down your makeup though. So I only use it at night, and a little after the shower. But after a shower I wait a full hour before applying makeup, otherwise it really will break it all down.Because of it's comedogenic quality I don't recommend this product over all.
