    Mara has become my “can’t live without” product in a very short time. My skin is smoother and has become noticeably less dull in only a few weeks of use. Being in New York in the winter is brutal and it’s hard to find a serum that helps with the dryness without leaving my skin feeling too oily after use but this somehow has that perfect combination. Could not recommend more to those who like one product that does it all.

  2. Tiffany

    Ever since I got back from the Olympics , I’ve been using the Universal Oil every day, and it is heavenly! I just use a few drops and my stressed out, exposed to weather-changing skin calmed right down. It feels so silky smooth on my face. I love the youthful glow I get from it. Definitely a must have.

  3. Isa

    ok, I looooooove Mara!! been wearing it night and day and something during the day when I have no makeup on. I left my house yesterday with nothing but Mara on and my friend asked me what was on my face, she said my skin looked great! It’s super glowy and moisturized

  4. Anastasia

    New favorite face oil. I have combination oily/dry skin and have tried so many oils, and Mara’s my skin’s forever hero. It’s super lightweight and doesn’t make me look shiny. Blackheads usually lurk on my nose and lower chin, and the oil made them look SMALLER. I’m breaking up with my moisturizer tonight because Mara = miracle.

  5. Cassandra

    This is hands down the best facial oil I have EVER used! It absorbs super quickly so no greasy feeling and my skin instnatly felt more hydrated. MUST PURCHASE!

  7. Dana (verified owner)

    I have been using Algae + Moringa Universal Face Oil for nearly 3 weeks. My skin is now completely moisturized and the wrinkles and small lines are melting away. My crepey is looking and feeling more youthful. I love how the oil absorbs quickly and does not leave a residue. This is is perfect for all climates and is healing the affects of living in a very dry climate…

  8. Lisa (verified owner)

    Love love Love this oil. I use it day and night and gives me the best glow. I live in Arizona and it has left me with hydrated skin without the oily residue some other oils leave. Thank you!!!

  9. Liz (verified owner)

    I had tried countless facial moisturizers and oils for my dry skin. From reading all the reviews, this truly might be a facial oil for everyone. I wear day and night and my skin has never looked better. Surprisingly makeup goes on nicely over and I never get that oily feeling by the end of the day. I’m so glad I took the leap and purchased this!!

    Love love love….please create a “travel” size version so I could carry in my purse for that midday pick me up.

    I have been using the Algae + Moringa Universal Face Oil each morning and night for about a month, and I have absolutely fallen in LOVE. I am typically very hesitant to try oils since I have acne-prone skin. However this oil breaks the mold-it has not caused a single breakout. In fact, I believe this oil has helped to clear up my skin; and that’s just one of the benefits. The extreme dry patches I was experiencing are completely gone. The fine lines on my forehead are diminished, and it has helped decrease the appearance of my pores. My skin is hydrated, clear, and glowy. The oil absorbs into the skin nicely, has a pleasant, earthy scent, and wears beautifully alone or under makeup. I love everything about the product: it’s cruelty free, its ingredients, even the bottle it’s in. I’m so glad I took a chance on this product; I will never be without it. My skin looks and feels better than ever!

  12. Pris Martinez

    Transformed my skin! I’ve been acne prone all of my life (even well into my 30s) and was always afraid of face oils for fear that I would flare up. I’m so glad I gave Mara a try! My skin feels supple, moisturized and breakout free!

  13. Scarlett

    Do your skin a favor and nourish it with Mara’s Universal Face Oil. This oil has quickly become one of my favorites and part of my daily skin care regimen. Mara’s consistency is thick enough to truly moisturize your skin and yet light enough to never leave your skin too oily; a combination I have yet to find in any other face oil. A must have + smells great!

  14. Natalie K. (verified owner)

    I used to think, “Why should I put oil on my face, isn’t the whole point not to have oily skin”. Well, I started to notice that my skin was losing its youthfulness heading into my mid 30’s so I thought, let me try MARA. It’s been a month since I started to use MARA and I am so happy with my choice! My skin has never looked so rejuvenated, smooth and hydrated! I use it in the morning and at night before going to bed. Some days all I have on my face is MARA! I love everything about this oil from the bottle, earthy smell and the organic ingredients. I highly recommend MARA to anyone that is having a tough time finding the right oil for their skin tone.

  15. Olivia (verified owner)

    I’ve been using Mara for about 2 months and saw results just within my first week of using it. I’ve always had combination dry/oily skin and Mara has balanced my skin out AND cleared up my complexion. It was really an overall change everywhere and I couldn’t be happier. You would think oil would leave you shiny and greasy, but Mara absorbs so quickly into your skin and nourishes it leaving you with this natural glow that looks great. Hands down the best product I have ever used on my face

  16. KB (verified owner)

    This product is a game changer. I’ve always had a hard time sticking to a regular skin care regiment, until Mara came along. It’s simplified my process: all it takes is a little Mara + sunscreen in the AM and then a bit of Mara after my cleanser at night — leaving my face hydrated and silky smooth. This is the softest and most refreshed my skin has felt in years!

  17. Asheley D.

    Before MARA, I avoided putting oil on my skin, which is acne-prone. Instead, I would slather my face with a litany of “oil-free” lotions and creams that were full of all sorts of things that I could not pronounce and left my skin looking dry and tired. Within one week of trying MARA at a friend’s suggestion, my skin felt supple and hydrated, and was perfectly moisturized without being oily. And my skin is a lot clearer to boot! MARA is a great name, but miracle could work, too!

  18. rachael matican

    I love this product so much! I’ve been using for a couple months now – day and night, sometimes more than twice a day. It’s hydrating and not too oiling. Keeps my skin super moisturized and clear. In between bottles I felt a bit lost without it and my other products just weren’t doing what I needed them to. Love love love this product, it makes my skin look so good, even toned, and prevents breakouts. I practically never wear face make up anymore! Can’t wait to see what’s next from Mara!

  19. Michael

    I’ve always been afraid to use face oil on my skin, afraid of oily skin and breakouts, but my skin got very dry this year, so I took a chance with Mara and I’m addicted! I’ve honestly never gotten more compliments on my skin, and felt this good in a while. 100% best product I’ve used on my face.

  20. Barbara Balik (verified owner)

    I never thought I’d find a “new” product for my skin that would offer the results I see every day with Mara. Certainly not an oil. I couldn’t have been more wrong. This product is extraordinary. It’s definitely hydrating and not oily at all. I’ve received more compliments about my skin since I’ve been using Mara than in all the years I used other (and much more expensive) products. I heard rave reviews about Mara, but until I tried it, I couldn’t really appreciate what all the hype was about. Now I know. It’s all true!

  21. Tina Christiansen

    I just love this product! It makes my skin feel silky smooth.
    As I’ve aged I look for something to keep my skin hydrated and supple.
    I’m in my sixties and I love the effect it has on my fine lines and skin tone.

  22. Abigail (verified owner)

    I have normal skin-type. I love facial oils. Based on the reviews I was expecting great things. Unfortunately, this dramatically dried out my skin. Which I was really surprised by given it’s an oil and i haven’t had problems with other oils before. Will not purchase again.

    • Allison McNamara (verified owner)

      We’re so sorry to hear that Abigail! We haven’t had any feedback like this so far – thank you for your honest review. We hope a future product is a better fit! xx MARA

  24. Manny (verified owner)

    I received this facial oil as a gift and i must say it is like the fountain of youth in a bottle. the texture the aroma are all fantastic and the glow is as if you have had a facial. I use this oil for everything. In the day i use it by itself as a moisturizer and at night i layer it over my serum. I am beyond happy with this product and have received many compliments on my skin since i have been using it which has only been a short time. keep up the great work and please keep new products coming.

    • Allison McNamara (verified owner)

  29. Erica Pirtle (verified owner)

    This oil is life-changing. I’ve noticed such a huge improvement in my skin since I’ve been using it. It’s more even, brighter, plump, and clearer. My fine lines are less noticeable as well. I get so many compliments on my skin now and am always quick to share about this oil. I’m on my second bottle and am about to order my third. I never want to be without my Mara oil!

  30. Genevieve

    Mara is my go to product! I suffer from super dry skin, I live in Colorado where it’s dry basically 90% of the year. Mara has helped with my dry skin, my redness, and acne! I also LOVE how plump and supple it makes my skin feel/look. I would suggest this product to anyone, and a little goes a long way!

  32. Anissa

    I have oily/dry combination skin and was initially concerned that it might make me more oily but it had incredibly effects. My dry spots were moisturized, my oily T-zone was soft and stopped over producing oils. I put it on after I’ve washed my face and my toners have dried. If I have a breakouts on my cheeks I’ll use a little more in those spots but it clears up days faster than if I let them be. The scent is natural, soothing but not too noticeable. I will Buy again and again!

  33. Jane Berliner (verified owner)
