Super light yet moisturizing and balancing
So far, so need for time
I’m allergic to everything! My face is very sensitive and reacts negatively to various oils. This stuff is magic. My skin feels so soft and smooth. Been using it for about 2 weeks now and my skin hasn’t turned on me.
I have been using this facial oil for a couple of weeks now and it has been a wonderful addition to my skincare regimen. I apply it after my toner and just before my moisturizer at night and sometimes in the morning and it leaves my face glowing and bright. My only issue is that I'm not a fan of ylang ylang scent and that fragrance seems to be the dominant scent in the oil. Other than that, I am happy about the overall softness and clarity that my face has been experiencing!
I like to use it whenever my skin feels tired or in need of some TLC. I apply a light layer on my face and neck at bedtime. Also great for soothing dry skin anywhere else!
I was hesitant to use this oil. I have combination/sensitive skin however my skin is moisturized and balanced! It's a great addition to my nighttime routine.
I started using this oil because my skin was incredibly dried out from prescription acne products coupled with winter dry air. It was awful: patchy, red, irritated. I even had resorted to using petroleum jelly, just to get some relief! Two weeks after using this twice a day, my skin was even, well moisturized, and glowing. No more petroleum jelly and I have even stopped using my acne medicine because my skin is so clear! A little goes a long way, and I haven't experienced any excess oil when using during the day (I have dry/combination skin). I highly recommend this product!
I love the smell of this oil. It hasn't really add anything to my routine, but it smells good. I use it at night because it leaves my face too oily during the day.
Hands down the best facial oil I have ever used. I am addicted. My skin dried out after menopause but this oil has brought back the moisture
My skin recently reacted negatively to something I used or ate, causing painful burning sensation, overwhelming dryness, and peeling. I new I would need to start a new facial regimen that included using all natural products. When I came across BLK + GRN, I felt right at home. Then I saw FLOW Perfectly Balanced Facial Oil and placed my first order the same day along with African Black Soap cleanser and cleansing water. After washing my face there was a slight tingle, like my skin was about to flare up, but as soon as I applied the FLOW Perfectly Balanced Facial Oil it all stopped. My skin was calm as I smoothed the oils over my face. I am in love! Thank you AFRO HAIR & SKIN CO., thank you BLK + GRN.
This moisturizer was amazing it absorbed into my skin easily and gave me a beautiful glow. I have sensitive skin and I usually break out when trying new products but that was not the case with this stuff ! I loved it !
I really like this oil a lot. It keeps my skin nice and smooth and keeps it moisturised. I thought that it would leave my skin greasy but it didn't, it absorbed in to my skin nicely. It also improved my skin tone, very nice product.
Having combination skin I never thought an oil would be my saving grace, but through the whole year this product helps even my skin tone. The trial size is a must in my handbag when Iâ€:tm:m travelling as well
I absolutely love this oil so much!!! It keeps my face so moisturized during the winter months. I just started using it and iâ€:tm:m in love!! I look forward to ordering more soon.
Loved using this product, at first i wasn't sure about purchasing as i have sensitive skin which at times can become oily, so using a facial oil i thought might not be the best idea. Well i was wrong, i love the smell and the texture as it is really light. It also improved the appearance of my skin which is great.
I have sensitive skin and I suffer from adult acne and because I have to take oral medication to help with my acne it can dry my skin. No moisturizer was helping, especially in the winter, so I decided to start using more natural products and I found this company from the blog Black Girl in Om. I started using this oil and when I went to my dermatologist for a check-up she approved of me using it. She said that it is sooo much better than using coconut oil (which will clog your pores). I love this product! My skin feels great and I receive compliments on its glow!
Love this face oil I use it everyday in my moisturiser and it gives my skin an extra glow and keeps it looking healthy. Even though I have an oily T zone it still seems to keep my face from looking shiny
I have been using the Flow oil for a while now and I am in love, no other oil blend I have tried even comes close. If I was a millionaire I would buy up hundreds and give them out to make sure every woman has this product in her bathroom! It's turned my skin around. It has really helped to smooth out dark pigmentation scarring from acne issues I had when I was younger and that's boosted my confidence. It's light, smooth and feels like silk on the skin. It makes my skin so smooth and it glows. Since I've been using this I've had several compliments on my skin which is great considering the struggles I've had with it in the past.
i really love how this oil makes my skin feel. It leaves me with a soft natural glow and my skin doesn't feel greasy or shiny at all! It's very moisturising, i only use one or two squirts and my skin feels hydrated the whole day. will definitely be buying again!
Now on my third bottle, I can definitely say that Iâ€:tm:ve finally found a moisturizer that suits my face. With only one pump, this delicious-smelling oil keeps my skin hydrated all day!
So this was my first time delving into using an oil for my face and I had been reading about lots of different ones online but what stood out to me was the emphasis on natural homegrown british ingredients which would be perfect for the climate that I live in. The oil itself smells wonderful and is not overpowering. It also sinks into your skin but doesn't leave it feeling clogged or heavy. I really hope this range continues to grow into make up ranges, lip balms and soaps.

I'm now on my 3rd bottle of this oil and I cannot praise it enough. It has truly been the icing on the cake for my skin regime, I now get endless compliments on how even of smooth my skin is and I can definitely say this product has made a vital contribution in the great appearance and increased supplness of my skin.When I ran out last monthI noticed my skin and had reverted to being quite dull and some slight hyper-pigmentation was returning, since I have begun using it again this has gone completely!
the flow facial oil has helped balance my skin tone and hydration. its a favorite product of mine using it both during the day and at night. highly recommend
I have combination skin but this oil works on my face perfectly. I can combine it with face creams and it adds that extra sparkle and glow to my face. I use it every day without fail and my skin has stopped looking constantly tired and defeated. Love it!
As I used to be a product junkie, I tried first the samples for face and hair. And I love all of them, but the emergency to restock for me was with Flow. It's the best oil ever. I could feel my face craving for it and not be oily during the day. As the weather is getting colder I use it as a serum hydration sealer after I've sprayed my face with water and then I put my day cream and it's perfect. So I've orderedbtwo bottles just to be sure to always have it around as I live in France I need to be prepared , though everything is shipped super fast! I highly recommend it.
I purchased a mini bottle of flow facial oil and am going to invest in a larger bottle. My face feels lush and moisturized and the oil is like nothing I have ever used. And, to know that the ingredients are ethically sourced will only keep me coming back.
I initially purchased a mini bottle of the facial oil as a trial as I thought the standard size was a little pricey. The oil felt so good on my face I ended up buying the standard size even though it is still pricey.
My overall experience using the facial oil has been amazing. The oil has started to clear up my skin and keeps my face super moisturized. I'm so happy I found this oil!
This gave my face a natural glow. Not too greasy on my face but gave me a nice natural looking glow almost satin like on my face
Imagine my glee when I found this perfectly packed bundle of goodness on my doorstep! I ordered some natural products by The Afro Hair And Skin Co. After a trusted recommendation. (chantimedia) I did not hesitate to try straight away. I love the amazing feel and smell of both #Flow - perfectly balanced facial oil and #bloom - Omega healthy hair oil. I'm a sucker for packaging so totally loved the environmentally friendly packaging with no plastic in sight and the personal message! #winner :smiley:
this facial oil is next level. i have gone through them all with various single oils (almond, jojoba, coconut, etc) and various concoctions (brands not to be named here) - and this is finally the oil that leaves my face feeling refreshed, cleansed, AND doesn't break me out. i love it!
So I only just realised this morning that I've finished my 10ml bottle of flow and the thought of being without it for a couple of days is quite unbearable if I must say. Don't be a Yasmin and only remember to stock up when the goods are finished. I honestly do not know what my face is going to do whilst I wait for the next order! This product has really done the most for my skin which is recovering from a severe acne breakout (hormonal cystic acne)...as I have titled the review; where has this product been all my life!? Thank you for gracing my face with your pure plant magic!
I've been using flow by afrohairandskinco for about 5 days now after a review by a friend. I am totally in love with this amazing oil. I have terrible skin, scarred and spot prone. I find most moisturisers either too much or not enough. But this little miracle has made my skin happy, happy, happy! Although the company is called @afrohairandskinco, I am Indian and found it to be just what I've been looking for. So THANK YOU! I have the mini set, which has hair oil and hair butter which I will be using on my daughters wash day as she has Jamaican Indian hair. I know afrohairandskinco posted this week asking what other products we'd like to see. I'd love a face cleanser and a body oil please. P.S - DID I MENTION THIS SMELLS AMAAAAAAAZING! I am grateful for you and your creation :purple_heart::purple_heart::purple_heart:
It was wonderful to meet the makers of this wonderful facial oil at Pop Up Africa. Flow has definitely helped my skin transition from winter to warmer weather. It's so light, my skin absorbs it beautifully and it helps soothe my rosacea. Having tried it in the Mini set (the hair oil and butter are terrific as well), I'm ready to go back in for the full monty. Really looking forward to your continued success and can't wait to see what you bring out next.
I was pretty sceptical about this face oil. I thought it'd probably have a thin, unappealing consistency and sit on my skin, making me look like a shiny-faced mess. How wrong I was! It has a lovely consistency, like light olive oil, and smells ever-so-faintly medicinal. (But not in an overpowering way.) You don't need to use much - just one squeeze of the pump dispenser works for me. It's absorbed quickly, and leaves my face feeling soft, smooth and hydrated from first thing in the morning till bedtime. This oil also makes the the enormo-pores on my cheeks much less noticeable. My skin's a massive fan!
This facial oil is my favourite! I usually suffer from dry patches in the middle of my forehead but using this oil helps to keep my face hydrated! A little goes a very long way, so I moisturise my face with a tiny amount each morning. My face remains smooth all day! If I could give 10 stars I would - I love this product! x
Finally writing a review after using this oil for the past 3-4 months. It smells amazing and is more radiant and hydrated without any sign of shininess at the end of the day! One drop was enough to cover my whole face :heart:ï¸
I never knew you could put oil on your face! Who knew!! My skin is combination dry and shiny at the same time. The only product I've used in the last 10 years if Body Shop Aloe Vera day and night cream. Being in France I eventually ran out and didn't know what to put on my face. I saw this website and order some testers. I thought the oil would make my face even more shiny and greasy but it hasn't. I've literally wrung the bottle dry trying to get the last drop out! So I've now ordered a bigger bottle :-)
I bought a sample size of Flow a couple of weeks ago and my face is already thanking me! It proved to be a light but nourishing moisturizer for my usually dry skin and I only needed a little each day. Will definitely be buying a full size one soon!
My typically combination skin has improved massively after a month of using this oil. I've been getting alot of compliments on how glowy I look. I was worried it would be too oily for me, but it has completely balanced it out!
Yes. I did not know that I could use oil on my face. I already have an oily face, so why should I? So I have asked around...and surprise, my girls did use oil for a while, even the ones with oily skin. So I have decided to give it a try, and guess what...? I love it. I am not using it on daily basis yet, I have started slowly (once a week at night), I have now switched to twice, still at night. So far, so good. It is so refreshing. Thank you
I am so happy with this facial oil! My skin drinks it in and looks really glowy and feels soft and hydrated after I've applied it. It sinks in straight away with no greasy residue so I can put my make up over the top. I have been using it in the morning and just before bed and I've still barely used any so I think this will last for a good few months :-). Also I am a sucker for good packaging and I love how this looks on the bathroom shelf!
I'd been using this as a night time oil but it's actually light enough to use in the day. I use it under make-up and my skin isn't greasy or overly shiny. I love the smell and you only need a drop or two.
I've been using this oil as a face mask oil and leaving it overnight and it works so well for me. I have both oily and dry skin so my skin needs extra care and with the lovely oils in this face oil it works as my at home mini facial treatment. So happy this product is on my bathroom shelf.
I love this facial oil. I really like the smell and feel of it. It's not greasy at all, which i was a bit worried about. My skin seems to soak it up and there is definitely a noticeable difference in my skintone. It feels very luxury and I love the packaging!
