Rewarded Review

I've only been using this for a few days now but can already see it working. I had an acne scar on my cheek that was still healing. it was a little scabbed because of my picking. I applied some tamanu oil on it overnight and the next morning saw it was less red and more faded. I am also applying the oil on my chin and jawline area where I have a lot of post hyperpigmentation from hormonal acne. The oil has a strong nutty earthy smell that does linger for a while after application. It is also a slight heavy oil, so it will feel greasy. which is why it's best to use as a spot treatment instead of applying to the entire face. The bottle comes with a pump instead of a dropper. The pump is a little stiff, so you have to press hard down on it. Which makes it a little hard to dispense the right amount of oil I need. Overall my experience using this oil has been good so far. I'm just not a fan of the smell.

I love that this has a nice scent, a good size, and that it seems to be of good quality. I think this bottle will last you for a long time, but the way the packaging dispenses is kind of annoying because I lose product down the sides of the bottle. It would be nicer if it was a dropper bottle. This did clog my pores and made me break out, so I had to stop using it, but it fades your scars so so quickly and kept my skin hydrated. If you don't have acne prone skin and want to fade scars, I would recommend this

definitely one of the best website ever used for my face I don't really love the smell that has a particular scent but it works great for acne scars or any skin troubles also great to mix a little in a regular cream or oil combination to dilute it and dilute the smell but if I want great result I music directly on a dark spot or an acne mark and it works great I sometimes use it also as can under eye cream but you should be careful not to get too close to the eyes mine was irritated but I have very sensitive eyes

It doesn't absorb in the skin efficiently and takes about 20-30 min to fully absorb, which is not ideal for layering skin care products on top. It is best to use the oil after your moisturizer (or the last step of your routine). I got results after one use, but nothing too drastic. Would continue to finish the whole bottle.

Love tamanu and have tried many brands. This one is very beneficial for skin, good quality and value. Use it daily as a serum to lock in moisture before my daily sunscreen or during my bedtime routine. Wonderful for itchy skin and repairing a damaged skin barrier. Smell is medicinal and is good for rashes too. A staple in my skincare routine.

I bought this to use to try to fade my hyperpigmentation. The oil is really thick, but still spreads well. I would personally describe the smell as a cross between a curry smell + nutty scent, it doesn't bother me as much as it does other people. The packaging size is compact and easy to pump.

This is my favorite tamanu oil although I've only tried two or three brands. The color is deep green and has that natural tamanu, grass-like scent. I have oily, acne-prone skin and this does not break me out! I used it almost every winter night while on accutane as well and it was moisturizing and sealed the rest of my skincare in.

really helps with fading scars. on my first bottle, i was quite repulsed by the smell but i have to admit that i've gotta used to it over time. i have olive skin, which is sensitive and prone to maskne, sensitive red spots and the monthly large blind PMS pimple. This has helped me fade and heal them.

The product is packaged nicely in a dispenser, instead of a dropper. Convenient to use, without getting hands and product too oily after use. Tamanu oil has always been a go-to for my eczema, cuts or blemishes as well as for diaper rash instead of using steroid cream. We also use it for hair and scalp, hair feels smoother and more nourished afterwards

holy grail product. Stinks a lot, is a thick oil with a green tinge, but it definitely works. Ive been using it for a month and on the daily, you can see the differences. It helps to plump the skin overnight, and within a month it has helped my skin to become more vibrant, youthful and reduced acne scarring. However, please note that I used it with the rest of my skincare ingredients, so the effect could simply be combined.
