  • "This is seriously one of my most favorite products that I have ever used. The reason being is that it can be used not only on your body but also on your face and hair and cuticles! I use this as a split end mender for my hair, a cuticle conditioner, eye make up remover and an all over body lotion. I sometimes mix this with another lotion just because you only need a few drops and it is super hydrating and moisturizing!" in 23 reviews

Honestly, I have used it a few times. I really have. But I don't know, I'm not seeing the benefits that so many people are raving about. I tried it on my skin and it did little as far as hydrating it goes. I did put it in my hair after I shower and I noticed that my fly aways and static from the winter isn't nearly as bad. However, I feel like I could get the same benefit from a product that is a little cheaper in cost. I did get this as a freebie for having a first-time visit at an Aveda salon, but I did check out the price of the product later and was surprised by how much it was.  

One other thing was the packaging, while simple and recyclable, it did not contain any directions on how to use the product. The directions provided were so vague that I didn't know when I should use it, in what step, or what is the best way to use. I actually had to come to Influenster to find out how to use the stuff. The bottle is also glass which is not safe for me because I am such a clutz. 

Honestly, I don't think I'll buy this product again. If it comes in a kit for me, I'll use it. But I don't think I'll go out of my way to buy it.

I am on my second bottle of this product and I’m obsessed! I use it on my face body hair. I’m super dry and have clear skin. So on my face it works wonders! I use it at night and when I wake up I’m skin is radiant, plumped and hydrated. I personally have not had any issues with it clogging pores. I have tried a lot of products over the years since I worked at Sephora. This is one product that I will be using for a very long time!

Love this product. The scent alone is worth buying it as it smells so beautiful, but it works great as well. 

I have used this on my face, body and hair to help moisturize, nourish, heal and replenish skin and hair. My favorite way to use this is as a bath oil. Just add a couple of drops to a warm bath and relax. 

I also like to mix this with the bath salts and the exfoliating to create a kind of salt scrub to use in the shower or bath.

I love our beautifying composition oil! This is the only aveda composition oil available fir purchase that is safe for the face. I use it to remove my makeup or as a perfume! They have a whole line of products with the beautifying scent. Aveda’s composition oil is a blend of soybean, olive, safflower, and sunflower oils which provide the skin with a ton of moisture and help aid in makeup removal. This can be used all over the body as a moisturizer. I like to add it to my shampoo. This is a multi-use product and it retails for $30!

I have been using this stuff for over ten years. There’s nothing it isn’t good for. If my scalp is dry I’ll put some of this on it at night and shower it out in the morning and my scalp feels better. I use it as cuticle oil. Face oil. On my legs after i shave. My fiancé even uses it as a massage oil. I love the way it smells and A little goes a long way. I will continue to repurchase this until they stop making it.

I have used this oil in my hair and as a body oil. There is something about the scents of most Aveda products that is simply calming and stress reducing and this product is an example of that. It has such a complicated scent, but it’s beautiful and relaxing and makes me feel like I’m at a spa. It isn’t a particularly light oil, but it’s lovely and if you’re interested in oils, I highly recommend you try it!

My husband is an Aveda IBW Student so we started buying Aveda products, I love this oil it deeply moisturizes your skin, DONT PUT IT IN YOUR FACE that would be to much, I also used it for the skin around my fingernail which was really dry and it helped a lot making it soft again. Smells wonderful, a little expensive but ok

I absolutely love this because it can be used for your skin and hair and it keeps my daughters body and hair from drying out. I use it every single day almost in the morning and at night and it's very gentle and I definitely would recommend it for anyone that has dry skin or hair .

The beautifying composition oil is the ultimate moisturizer for after the shower. I occasionally get dry skin on my knees and elbows and this is the only moisturizer that I see huge results from in only a couple of days. The scent is wonderful and a little goes a long way!

I️ love this oil! The fact that it is all natural and cruelty free is amazing! I️ use this everyday in the winter before I go to bed, during the day as a moisturizer. It dries very smooth and not slick or too oily. I️ buy this for everyone for Christmas!

By the fact that it is getting 5 stars, it must be great! Does it last a good while too? Just at that price I would be heartbroken to only have it last a week or so....my skin is so dry I have to use a lot

I have been looking for a product that gives moisture, but is light and won't clog pores. Does this fit the bill?

I just got this as a birthday gift from my salon. It sounds like it has many uses. Can anyone tell me how they are using this oil?

I just bought this and am specifically using it to relieve an itchy and dry scalp. Should I put this on my dry hair or mix it in with conditioner?
