When it comes to oils, quality matters. What stands out about YÜLI is how fresh and high quality the ingredients are. This is because no product is made until it is ordered and YÜLI uses ingredients that they grow and harvest themselves so it’s like farm to skin fresh. This is important because plant oils are very concentrated so freshness and purity is so important for performance.
ME Skin Fuel is the versatile face oil that is recommended for most people starting out or uncertain which oil to use. I chose it because my skin was becoming very irritable and stopped getting along with everything. This was recommended to me as being great at restoring balance to my skin and strengthening it. This delicious oil is concentrated and lightweight, yet densely packed with plenty of nutrients that it has earned the nickname as a “multivitamin nutrient cocktail” for the skin.
My first impressions
My first impression is how taken I was with the freshness of this product. The color and smell are both so vibrant and blossoming. You can literally tell from the picture. The oil color is pure gold and contains many gems like Pomegranate Seed, Black Cumin Seed, Broccoli Seed, Red Raspberry Seed, Argan Oil and Prickly Pear Seed Oil. It’s cold pressed and made fresh to ensure maximum levels of bioactivity and preserve the integrity of the nutrients by removing heat and chemicals from the extraction process. This means its purity level is basically not matched.
I also love how inventive and smart YÜLI is with the ingredients, Red Raspberry Seed adds a level of environmental UV protection, Black Cumin Seed boosts cell immunity and fends off weakness, Broccoli Seed gives a very light and silky primer texture, Prickly Pear Seed is a vitamin and antioxidant powerhouse, while the Dandelion infusion has anti-irritation properties.
There is a herbal scent that is mostly Jasmine which is a very intoxicating flower that gives this some lightness and luxury. I don’t find it as heavy as Rodin’s oil, it’s much more measured and subdued which I prefer for face care products.
I apply 3-5 drops for my skin and use the press-push technique to massage the organic oils into my skin. This gives an immediate rested glow. It really feels like I’m feeding my skin the nutrients it has been craving. After about 2 weeks I noticed my skin was no longer as weak or reactive with some eczema flareups subsiding and persistent redness toned down significantly. Products that I could not use before no longer stung or burned and I think it’s because this oil has really healed and repaired my skin.
There are many face oils but this doesn’t just feel like just an oil, my skin feels and looks so different after I put this on. There is a significant difference from using this and I recommend it for anyone. YÜLI is a line known for it’s scientific and advanced ingredients, so I understand some might steer toward their bio-retinol serum or liposomal Vitamin C. ME Skin Fuel is a straight forward blend of superb quality cold pressed, organic plant oils that showcase YÜLI’s high quality sourcing from their biodynamic farms rather than technological innovations like the rest of their line. This makes it the ideal repair and restore serum for sensitive or problematic skin that just needs good ingredients that work and won’t irritate skin.
In just the span of a few weeks this has quickly become a go to product for soft, silky skin. The oil really goes a long way toward feeding and improving my skin. Just a few drops day and night seems to fix all my skin issues and turns my skin into the perfect canvas.

There is a reason why YÜLI products are ALWAYS sold out, sometimes within hours of arriving at retailers. Their products are that good and I was particularly impressed with ME Skin Fuel, their interpretation on facial oil. $92 for 1 oz is an investment but for cold pressed, organic plant oils of the highest quality, it is a worthy price to pay. I believe there are oils that are more expensive that are not as well made as this. I fell in love with the first use and continue to lightly press this into my skin during the day and bathe my skin in this repair serum at night. It is pure liquid gold and a must have in any face oil collection.
