Because of these amazing qualities that’s beneficial to the skin, the sea-buckthorn fruit is commonly used as an ingredient in many skincare products.

    The Ordinary 100% Organic Virgin Sea-Buckthorn Fruit Oil 30 Day Before and After Results

    After using The Ordinary’s Sea-Buckthorn Fruit Oil for 30 days, it’s clear that this oil can be significantly beneficial to the skin.

    It’s amazing that using only this single skincare product for 30 days improved the hand by:

    • Hydrating and texturizing the skin.
    • Decreasing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
    • Increasing pigmentation, resulting in skin with a healthier looking tone.

    Even though the sea-buckthorn fruit oil washes off easily using soap and warm water, enough of the oil absorbs into the skin to visibly change the skin tone!

    Overall, The Ordinary’s Sea-Buckthorn Fruit Oil delivers incredible results for a seemingly minimalistic skincare product.

    However, this oil is not perfect.

    A little sea-buckthorn fruit oil goes a long way!

    As you might’ve guessed, we ran into a few issues due to the oil’s natural bright orange color.

    It’s highly recommended not using oils during the day but if you’re planning to use this sea-buckthorn fruit oil as part of your morning skincare routine, then you’ll stand out as The Ordinary’s Sea-Buckthorn Fruit Oil doesn’t lose color over time and the skin will stay distinctly orange!

    Realistically then, this oil is best suited for nighttime skincare routines but be warned that it’s going to get messy and your clothes, bedsheets, pillows and blankets will turn orange.

    If these issues aren’t a major inconvenience, then The Ordinary 100% Organic Virgin Sea-Buckthorn Fruit Oil would make a wonderful addition to your skincare routine!

    For those who want to simplify their skincare routines by using natural oils, The Ordinary has an incredible line of skincare products that we highly recommend, such as:

    The Ordinary 100% Organic Virgin Sea-Buckthorn Fruit Oil Product Review

    Do you want to start using The Ordinary’s Organic Sea-Buckthorn Fruit Oil in your own skincare routine?
    Here’s what we noticed that might help you decide if this natural oil is right for you:

    What color is The Ordinary 100% Organic Virgin Sea-Buckthorn Fruit Oil and does it stain clothes?

    This natural oil has a bright orange color and to test if this product stains, we applied some sea-buckthorn fruit oil to a new reusable makeup remover pad.



    We let the oil soak for about 5 minutes before washing the makeup remover with regular hand soap and warm water.

    It took a bit of scrubbing and surprisingly, most of the oil washed right out!
    However, the makeup remover isn’t completely white color and there is a slight yellow stain to the fabric (seen in the photo below).

    Does the sea-buckthorn fruit oil have a strong scent or fragrance?

    There is a distinct smell, but it’s not an artificial or an added fragrance.

    It’s the natural, earthy scent of the sea-buckthorn fruit oil and to some, it can be overwhelming.

    Try to appreciate the fact that this oil is natural and nothing has been added to try and cover up the scent.
