I have always heard that borage oil is good for the skin and I was excited to order some and try it. This oil is nice and does not have a strong scent. I mixed it with some other carrier oils and carrot seed oil to make a face and body moisturizer for my dry, mature skin. I used it for the first time at night and my skin feels wonderful in the morning. My only complaint is with the shipping. My order took almost two weeks to reach my house and when I opened the package the bottles were very warm to the touch. What is the use of ordering oil that is cold pressed if the oil is heated up during shipment? I can't help but think that some of the nutritive properties of the oil were lost due to the heat. I would expect the oils to arrive in a timely manner so that I can use it regularly.
