No matter how much good stuff a beauty product has in it, it typically comes down to smell when deciding whether or not it’s a keeper for me.

As much as I wanted to love Marie Veronique Organics’ MVO Face Oil, the distinct smell of emu oil (yes, I know what emu oil smells like) broke the deal for me.

However, I can’t ignore how beautiful my skin looked and felt after patting on this oil everyday for a week.

{My friends at OpenSky set me up with a sample of MVO Face Oil to test and review. A 1-ounce bottle retails for $80; a 4-ounce bottle costs $255.}

If you can get over the emu oil (or your nose doesn’t detect it the way mine does), there’s a bouquet of other beautiful-smelling and hardworking ingredients inside MVO Face Oil, which is designed to deeply moisturize and protect skin from the elements, slowing down the signs of aging and revealing radiant skin.

Here’s the entire ingredients list:

Organic jojoba oil, organic grapeseed oil, organic apricot kernel oil, meadowfoam seed oil, organic argan oil, organic blackberry seed oil, organic borage oil, emu oil, organic evening primrose oil, organic marula oil, organic rosehip seed oil, vitamin e, black raspberry seed oil, organic cranberry seed oil, organic kiwi seed oil, organic sea buckthorn oil, organic tamanu oil, organic lecithin, organic rosemary, lycopene, krill oil, carrot seed essential oil, organic lavender essential oil, rosa centifolia essential oil, rosa damascena essential oil, rose geranium essential oil, helichrysum essential oil, neroli essential oil, organic ylang ylang essential oil

This powerful concoction makes for a gorgeous golden-hued oil that feels looks and feels thick as you drop it onto your skin, but quickly slips into your pores and leaves a light finish.

Your skin feels smooth to the touch after just a drop of this powerhouse oil; I’m truly sad it’s just not working for me in the scent department!

I’m thinking of adding a little more lavender to tame the smell so I can continue to use it on my face.

If that doesn’t work, I still plan to finish out the sample on my hands, as they’re prone to chapping during cold, dry weather.
