    I got a 4oz because I'm just getting into formulations but I should have went ahead and got more because this stuff it legit! Soaks in easily and isn't greasy. Perfect for a summer oil

    Perfect for a facial serum

    I have long wanted to use Evening Primrose for a facial serum but was always put off by the pricing I was seeing. Then, when ordering something else on MakeYourOwn.buzz, I saw they offered it. The price was right and the product turned out lovely.
