Oils are fabulous for treating a multitude of skin issues including general dryness, occasional dryness in certain area's at certain times. Combined with active ingredients they can go way beyond addressing dry skins with benefits that address, ageing, problem skins, stretch marks and more.
I think the development and growth of organic skincare products over the last couple of decades is pivotal in the increase of the number of beauty oils that have launched. Primarily because in the early days, organic products were limited to a only a few forms that included oils and balms. Creating emulsions, water-based formulae and those that foamed was hugely challenging for organic brands. Over the last two decades, there have been advances and some creative license in how much of the product is organic and which organisation certify's it. Anyway, it meant that oils of all kinds were developed, cleansing, hair, face, scalp and each addressing a different area allowed more products to be developed.
Added to that, is the intelligence gained from other cultures and their rituals, that include the use of oils for the benefit of skin, body, hair, scalp etc. For example Ayurvedic practices.
As a child, I had extremely long, thick hair and each Saturday night, my Mother used to apply oil to my hair and scalp and it was washed out the following morning. My scalp was healthy and my hair was conditioned. I also had an oily and problem skin and often used an oil to remove make up because it is very effective at cutting through the sebum on the skin, for an effective cleanse that is critical to all skins, especially problem skins. Using harshly drying products, strips the skin and it works harder to replenish the oil. And of course we all know the benefits to dry skins. Many sufferers of eczema and psoriasis get some relief from oils too.
Everything Everywhere Beauty Oil was created with my six pillars ( http://www.merumaya.com/mission-and-inspirations )to guide me and has negated the need to buy several different oils for different parts of the body. In addition, I wanted it to be really versatile in how you use it so, it is gentle enough to use direct onto the skin and powerful enough to deliver results when mixed in with your face or body moisturiser. It had to work effectively and efficiently without feeling greasy or laying on the surface of the skin, so that all skin types would enjoy using it.
I worked with the team of cosmetic scientists to also deliver on the following:
When I was happy with the formula, I invited those customers that are signed up to my emails, the chance to put it all to the test. I do this because I truly want to create products that you want rather than just what I think you want or what is the latest trend. We got fantastic reviews;
All in all, a lot of thought and customer participation has gone into the creation of Everything Everywhere Beauty Oil and I really hope you love it.
- Perfect!Review by Martine
It was red, sore and flaky.
I was always afraid of oils because even at 47 I still get breakout and oily skin, but because of the flakiness I needed something extra.
I bought a few samples of oils which were OK, but then discovered this and it's fabulous!
No more flakiness, great mild smell, nourishing and a big 50ml, when most oils are 30ml at most...Love it! (Posted on 12/10/2016)
- Powerful MoisturisingReview by Jo (Tester)
I used the oil directly on my body and was impressed with how quickly the oil sank in and how soft my skin felt after use. It absorbs better than my current oil, which I previously thought was quite good on this front. For use as a body oil I wish is was slightly more scented.
I don't normally use oils on my scalp but I thought I would try this out. It felt lovely to use and I think would provide real benefits at the times my scalp is dry and uncomfortable.
I tried the oil in place of my usual hair oil applying it directly to damp hair after a shower. I was concerned that like other multi-use oils I've tried it would make my hair greasy, but this didn't seem to be the case. After use my hair was frizz free, soft, shiny and not weighed down.
I tried this on my cuticles when they were quite a state. I had lots of hangnails, and a cut above one nail where the clingfilm dispenser had attacked me. The oil worked wonders on my hangnails and I think make the cut heal faster than I would have expected it to have. The other brilliant thing was that because the oil absorbed so quickly I felt I could apply it throughout the day, rather than having to wait until I had hours to sit around not touching anything.
I have never used a brow and lash conditioner before, but I applied a small amount of the oil directly. My lashes and brows felt softer after use, but I'm not sure I need a product of this type.
It feels thinner to apply than other oils I have used, and absorbs much better but still has just as much softening power. A true multi-tasker.

- Just rightReview by Katherine (Tester)
I used your beauty oil on my body after showering whilst my skin was still slightly damp. It absorbed well, but I would have preferred more of a scent to be left on my skin. My legs and arms do not suffer from dryness so I did not see much of an effect there, however it has improved the dryness on my hands, I found it much better than a hand cream.
I had good results on my hands, it improved the condition and did help my cuticles become softer.
I would prefer a stronger scent, but the texture and absorption is just right. It also felt very nourishing and soothing on my skin. I found it to be a great massage oil.
It absorbed very well, it did not leave any greasy residues. I was able to dress shortly afterwards.
I would say you have the level just right, it softened my hands, and was moisturising on my face and body. In terms of comfort, it felt very soothing when I massaged it in.
An all over/multi-use Beauty Oil with a delicate, subtle fragrance to improve skin radiance and soften/moisturise your skin.

- Very goodReview by Kayleigh (Tester)
I mixed it with my usual body moisturiser and it delivered a much longer lasting hydration to my winter parched skin. Using the moisturiser alone my legs would be dry by the time I was going to bed, but this was not the case with the oil.
I used it as a pre-treatment and coated my hair in it for an hour before washing and this really tamed the frizz and gave my shine to my dyed hair.
The level of moisturising, comfort and softening was very good, especially as I have been dealing with dry skin recently due to central heating etc., and it has really helped to comfort the skin and make it feel nourished.
I would say the texture and feel of it is better than other beauty oils I have used.

- Very softeningReview by Louise (Tester)
Makes brows/lashes soft and makes applying mascara easier as it glides on.
Was very softening to the skin and left my skin fully moisturised and not itchy like some products do.
Best uses being the face, body and scalp. Helps fully moisturise the skin and leaves it smooth and not flaky or dry.

- Left my skin very happy! Review by Sophia (Tester)
Used after washing my hair, before drying and styling. On the rare occasion, if my hair has dried naturally and is a little worse for wear, a touch of oil before straightening. The Beauty Oil worked wonders to tame flyaways and overall left my hair feeling incredibly soft.
I found it really lovely - when used as a facial oil my skin felt instantly hydrated, softer and more plump to the touch. When used as a cuticle oil I found it sank into skin well whilst leaving my nails looking beautifully healthy and glossy! As a hair oil I found it had an almost instantaneous effect, making my hair feel incredibly soft.
The formula had a lovely feel to it; no unwanted greasy or sticky residue which I often find with oils.
It's a beautiful and really effective oil that has left my skin very happy! I genuinely fell in love with it and loved the way it made my skin, body and hair feel!

- Fantastic level of moisturisingReview by Sonal (Tester)
Skin on the body feels more moisturised and dry skin has disappeared. I mixed the oil with my normal body butter.
Definitely helped my dry scalp, I applied a small amount on my scalp every other day and have not had any dandruff since.
Used a small amount during/after styling my hair and the fly away hairs were tamed quickly.
Worked well as a cuticle softener, cuticles were left soothed and dry skin disappeared.
Lashes look more conditioned. Brows and lashes look more enhanced.
Fantastic level of moisturising, comfort and softening, Beauty Oil worked very well.
A great, versatile oil which definitely does what it says it will.

- Lovely!Review by Guiuli (Tester)
- Great Review by Jaqui (Tester)
I've used a small amount on my forearms and also my feet. I like the effect, my skin looks nourished and I think I prefer using an oil rather than a moisturiser which can be heavy to apply and feel very wet until it absorbs. I didn't try mixing the oil with a moisturiser as I wanted to see the effect with just the oil. That was successful.
I've not used a dry scalp treatment before but occasionally throughout the year I do suffer from dry scalp and dandruff. I used the oil sparingly on my scalp about an hour before showering and washing my hair, it was amazing. My hair wasn't at all greasy after washing and my scalp felt and looked great. I could see at my hairline there was no dryness whatsoever, this will be a great addition to my stock of supplies.
I don't have frizzy hair as such but it is wavy once it's washed. Sometimes I prefer to leave my hair to dry naturally and like the natural waves, the beauty oil really helped keep them in shape and in place without any greasiness. On days I prefer my hair straight I used a couple of drops on my fingertips and moisturised the top layer of my hair. It made drying a dream and I did have a lovely sheen to my hair and didn't need my usual glossing spray to finish.
I have sparseish brows to that was lovely to define and keep my brows in shape. I used the remnants of what was on my hands after moisturising my face with the oil and shaped my brows. A really good tip, thanks.
Behind my ears can sometimes get dry and itchy especially if I've used a lot of hair products. The oil was very soothing and the tiniest amount was effective.
After one night of using the oil on my face and experiencing no hair greasiness I was sure it would absorb easily and quickly everywhere and it did. I've had no side effects of using the oil at all and any dry patches on forehead and nose have disappeared and the skin feels and looks smooth, a natural shade and seems completely at ease with itself.
Some other oils seem to have a lot of additives and sometimes my skin can look redder after I've applied it than it was before.
