Auki Black Seed Oil Review

I was offered the chance to try the Auki Black Seed Oil ($79 AUD) and being someone who loves a good beauty oil - I thought it would be a great product to try! This product is only tested on humans - no animals are harmed by Auki!

Auki is an Australian brand founded by Erika Bolneo right here in Brisbane - Auki is Australian made & owned! Erika has a background in Biomedical Science and a history of adult acne - a perfect combo for creating a skincare product! You can also buy Black Seed Oil capsules from Auki so you can experience the benefits internally, too! 

The Black Seed Oil comes in a black glass bottle with a dropper and gold accents. It looks and feels expensive, the ingredients are listed on the back of the bottle. You can use the Black Seed Oil in lots of different ways, so far I have tried it for my face/neck and hands but it can also be used mixed with foundation, in your hair, as a pre cleanser/makeup remover & in your brows and lashes!

The first ingredient is Black Seed Oil. Black Seed Oil contains thymoquinone which is a powerful anti inflammatory and an antioxidant - it has been used for thousands of years. 

The second ingredient is Cannabis Sativa (Hemp Seed) Oil. Hemp Seed oil can balance out oily skin and moisturise without clogging your pores. The skincare products that I have tried in the past with Hemp Seed Oil have been amazing so I was very happy to see this in the ingredients! 

This oil has replaced my favourite night time mask - the Eve Lom Radiance Transforming Mask. I had amazing results with this mask and it also contains Hemp Seed Oil but it isn't Cruelty Free so it wasn't a product I was comfortable using anymore.

I started using the Black Seed Oil as recommended - 2 drops in my moisturiser in the beginning and then I built up to 5 drops of oil on it's own. When I started using the Black Seed Oil I had JUST had the mirena inserted so my skin has been chaotic, there are many personal experiences of women having cystic acne or just bad skin in general after the mirena. I am one  of the women experiencing generally bad skin, my skin was always great except for some dryness and hormonal pimples (not acne) but I have quite a bit of hormonal pimples all the time now. 

My bumps have stayed small and not caused any scarring which I think is because of the Black Seed Oil. The oil keeps your skin soft and super hydrated meaning the scar tissue is more flexible, hydrated skin also makes facial scars appear less obvious.

I also began using Black Seed Oil on my hands - I get dermatitis that turns blistered and scarred. I also am a frantic cuticle picker. Since using the oil on my hands my dermatitis scars are no longer visible and my fingers heal in a couple of nights, the skin is so much softer allowing it to heal easier. My dermatitis, when active and at the worst point, never got to the blistering stage which is the most painful part!

Auki are proud sponsors of Beyond Blue, a portion of each bottle sold is donated! This is such an important cause to donate and bring attention to since nearly 8 Australians take their lives every single day. 

I hope you have found this review somewhat helpful! I think this is such a great and versatile product - I can't wait to start using it in more ways! As I mentioned earlier, I was sent this product to try with no obligation to post positive feedback!
