Rating: This says light green to light yellow, mine came as medium green at best. I've been soaping for almost 8 yrs and have never seen a grapeseed oil quite this dark. Really hoping it doesn't discolour my bath bombs

Rating: Light carrier oil, easy to use on the body. Absorbs quickly and easily. This is a go to carrier oil when making roller balls because it is so light. I highly recommend this for these types of application. I found little pimples break out when used on the face or especially the upper lip and brow area where there is more dense facial hair growth potentially.

Rating: Great oil, nice and light. Works great in my CP soap recipe!
By:Victoria, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 13-May-2013
Rating: My go to light oil! It is not a nut oil so it is good for those with allergies. it makes great infusions since there is no smell to it. I pour some in a pot, put a bowl full of my favorite flowers like dandelions and simmer it down all day, strain a few times and voila! Oh, add some preservative as there may be water in your flowers.

Rating: If I could give this 10 stars I would! It's the best oil... ever! Totally sinks into the skin and leaving it non-greasy and smooth like silk! Beautiful! Defiantly buying this again.
By:Stephanie, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 24-Aug-2010
Rating: Wonderful! Non-greasy, light - everything everyone's already said. I didn't notice a scent to it.
By:Rachel, Dryden, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 14-Jan-2014
Rating: If you are looking for a light oil, fast absorbing this is it.
I use it in my skin cream and it is just lovely. And the price is the best.
Rating: I've been using this oil for cleansing my skin (the "oil cleansing method") and it is wonderful. My typically oily skin has balanced itself out from the use of grapeseed oil. I use this product as a moisturizer as well, and it leaves my skin soft, silky, and NON-greasy! Thanks for carrying this, NDA!
By:Laurie, Orangeville, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 01-May-2013
Rating: This oil is even more incredible than I thought! I use it mostly for oily and acne prone skins treatments (like soaps, but mostly creams and masks) and it works wonders! Clients keep reporting that their skin feels tonified after being subjected to this oil, thanks to its astringent properties. Will never do without this oil!
Rating: Really like this oil so silky and great to mix with EO's and used as a moisturizer and skin oil!
By:Elvira, Oakville, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 03-Feb-2012
Rating: This grapeseed oil is so light and sinks right in. I use it for almost every facial product I make and it gives a really nice silky feeling.
By:Manon, Rawdon, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 07-Jun-2011
Rating: Really useful oil that absorbs nicely. No aroma, just the good carrier oil.
By:Vladimir, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 29-Apr-2011
Rating: My skin loves this ultra-light oil. If my face is feeling dry I'll apply a tiny amount s a moisturizer and it's absorbed quickly. Doesn't leave it feeling greasy at all.
By:Elisabeth, Caledon East, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 21-Nov-2012
Rating: Non-greasy, light. Great oil!
By:Madison, Hamilton, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 11-Mar-2012
Rating: Great product for a great price. I recently purchased some grapeseed oil to implement into my moisturizer and my skin has surely thanked me for it. Grapeseed oil is one of my new favorite oils.
Rating: I am in love with this grapeseed oil. I have dry skin and eczema and it has really done wonders for improving my skin. I usually just put it directly on my skin and I like to use it in the bath, it is a good moisterizer and it is not greasy, even my husband uses it :)

Rating: This is a super all-purpose oil and NDA offers it at a great price. It absorbs very well into the skin. For lotions and creams it is nourishing yet not heavy or oily. Super!
By:Jeni, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 13-Feb-2012
Rating: I love this oil! It's brilliant in lotions as it just sinks right into the skin. It's also great straight-up. I love its neutral scent and quick, effortless moisturizing power. This is an oil I will definitely be replacing when I run out.
By:Marie, Calgary, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 30-May-2011
Rating: Ok.. so i ran out of grapeseed oil and went to buy some for my lotion bars at the health food store. HOLY sticker shock! Best price by far is found right here - thats the last time im going to let myself run out.
Ive scrapped my usual moisturizer and now am using grapeseed oil after cleansing and a spray of rosewater/witch hazel. It absorbs right in,its light and you cant beat the price - its just right!
By:Betsy, Brockville, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 23-Apr-2010
Rating: I made my first batch of body lotion using grapeseed oil as my main ingredient , my customers were amazed how moisturizing it felt on there skin. I even had one customer say she enjoy my lotion over one she bought at the Shopping Chanel from a well known person.
I do like this oil so far the best ,as it absorbs into the skin, without that greasy feeling.
By:Marilyn, Newmarket, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 11-Jan-2010

By:Shirleen, Penetanguishene, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 24-Jul-2006
Rating: Wonderful greenish oil. I make soap since years but am a beginner into cream and butters making. This very fresh and light oil is well absorbed by the skin.
Huile fabuleuse de couleur verdätre, sans odeur. Bien absorbée par la peau. Je commence à travailler ma ligne de crèmes pour la peau et cette huile m'inspire !
By:Louise, Montreal, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 25-Feb-2006
Rating: What an amazing oil. Just add a few drops of your favorite Eos in it and nothing else and your skin will flourish and it will thank you every time you use this blessed oil. Leaves your skin soft as velvet. Non-comedogenic at all.
By:Silvia, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 03-Dec-2008

By:Mark, Sydney, Nova Scotia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 05-Dec-2008
Rating: My Grape Seed Oil arrived well packaged as usual and through the bubble wrap I was giddy at the sight of the light green colour of this oil! I have never used Grape Seed Oil before so basing my purchase on the helpful reviews of other customers and the wonderful information provided by NDA staff I knew this would be an excellent oil to use in my skin care being chock full of vitamins, nutrients and being slightly astringent.
By:Christine, Burnaby, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 30-Nov-2008
Rating: So light and has a lovely green hue. Excellent price NDA!
Rating: The beautiful bright green hue makes me happy every time I see it.
Clients tell me that they are attracted to my grape seed, avocado and basil massage oil because of the colour.
By:Tracey, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Jan-2007
Rating: Light and absorbs nicely into the skin. I absolutely love using this as a carrier oil in my massage products. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!
By:Clories, Petawawa, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 18-Dec-2007
Rating: This is one of my favorite oils. It's a little thick for some of my massage clients, but I find that if I mix it with Holly oil, the consistency is perfect for almost every client. In the winter months, I change the ratio to more grapeseed and find it aborbs well into the skin and doesn't leave a heavy residue. I love being able to change my scents with this oil - every one of them has smelled fantastic!

Rating: New Directions Grapeseed Oil is a valuable and affordable addition to my arsenal of cosmetic ingredients.
This all-purpose oil can be used for any application from massage oil, soap, salves, lotions to shampoo. It's a light oil that absorbs easily into the skin and is high in vitamins, protein, minerals, linoleic and other essential fatty acids. I find it beneficial for all skin types, dry, damaged, aging skin and for use on eyes and neck. It is a good oil for people who have acne or severe allergies as it does not cause any known allergic reactions and will not aggravate skin. Helps strengthen tissue cells, tighten, tone, preserve moisture and has astringent properties.
By:Romeo, Guelph, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 22-Aug-2007
Rating: A very nice light multipurpose oil. I use it in my massage oil and body scrubs, and also as a substitute for sweet almond oil when I want to provide a product without nut oils (due to allergies). This oil has never given me any kinds of problems at all. Excellent price, too!

Rating: I've only bought one bottle of this so far. I wanted to try it out and so far with GREAT results!! I put a few drops of lavender essential oil into this to massage the backs of just about everyone in my family. They LOVE it. It feels great and not greasy and they feel extremely relaxed. Great to use on kids before bed to bring them down from a long day! I've used some in my soaps too with great results. Definitely buying again!
