Le Prunier Plum Beauty Oil Review: Before and After

Written by: Allison Taylor



Time to read: 7 min

A cult favorite since it was first released, our Plum Beauty Oil is a league above other cold-pressed oils.

Our biodynamic facial oil is made from the upcycled seeds of the plum - long hailed as the "fruit of life" in the Caucasus region of Western Asia.

Modern studies have shown that this ancient superfruit contains surprisingly high concentrations of antioxidants and essential fatty acids that nourish and hydrate the skin. But does it merit the fanfare?

In this review, we'll be matching up clinical research with real before and after results and customer reviews to see if our oil truly deserves its cult status.

Before and After

The before and after images from our clinical study below showcase the transformative effects of Le Prunier Plum Beauty Oil on different skin types, via a 2-week daily use regimen.

These photos have not been retouched or edited in any way. They have been taken in natural lighting in identical settings to provide accurate results.

Acne Scars, Skin Texture, & Skin Tone

As you can see in this photo, a significant reduction in acne scars and an overall improvement in skin texture can be seen in just two weeks after using Plum Beauty Oil.

This is due to the oil's ability to deeply hydrate and nourish the skin, promoting cell turnover and reducing the appearance of scars and uneven texture.

Wrinkles, Fine Lines, and Redness

In this photo, we can see a decrease in wrinkles and fine lines after using Plum Beauty Oil for just two weeks.

The laugh lines around the patient's mouth are less defined in the after photo, showing the oil's ability to plump and smooth fine lines, helping prevent further signs of aging.

Crow's Feet & Wrinkles Around the Eye

In this photo, we can see a dramatic reduction in crow's feet and wrinkles around the eye area after using Plum Beauty Oil for two weeks.

The delicate skin around the eyes is particularly prone to fine lines and dryness, making it a common area of concern for many people. However, with consistent use of Plum Beauty Oil, the skin becomes deeply hydrated and nourished, reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

The antioxidant-rich oil also helps to protect the skin from environmental damage and promote collagen production, resulting in smoother and more youthful-looking skin.

Why Our Plum Beauty Oil is Superior

  • Only our plum oil is proven to be 6x more powerful than Marula and 8x more powerful than Argan oil at defending against the harmful effects of hydroxyl radicals.
  • We grow our plums using biodynamic farming practices and oversee every stage of the production process from start to finish. We grow, harvest, and press everything on our family farm.
  • Our optimized extraction process ensures maximum bioactives are retained, making our oils and extracts up to 18x more potent and effective.
  • Clinically proven to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and improve skin hydration, elasticity, and firmness.
  • Contains more antioxidants than kale, blueberries, or spinach which fight free radicals that cause aging.
  • Naturally rich in critical antioxidants, phytochemicals, and polyphenols.
  • Absorbs quickly without leaving a greasy residue, unlike other facial oils.
  • Dermatologist-approved and safe for all skin types, including allergy and rosacea-prone skin.

Pro Tip: Want silky, shiny hair? Apply oil to ends of damp hair to soften and smooth and protect against blow-dry heat damage.

An Effortless Glow in Just 14 Days:

★★★★★ My new favorite!

I love everything about Le Prunier plum beauty oil. It glides on, softens my skin, and leaves me with a glow, but it's not too greasy like many other oils. My husband actually complimented my skin this week saying it looked really smooth and beautiful. I've been using the oil only about 14 days.

★★★★★ My Eczema Is Healed!

I LOVE this oil. As someone who suffers from eczema and dry sensitive skin. This oil is everything! Just 4-5 drops a day on my face twice a day and my skin stays soft and heals the dry patches.
