I've been using this product for a couple weeks now and I am definitely seeing signs of improvement with my skin. But I must warn you, DO NOT apply the oil to your skin as is. You should get a thin tiny layer of the oil as a little goes a longgg way and mix it with whatever moisturizer you use for your face. You'll immediately feel the difference in softness of your skin. And it is helping to even out my skin tone which is exactly what I was hoping for. And best of all it's natural! Def give it a chance
I can't find any benefit to this at all. And, I really don't think it smells any different than cooking oil. And, if people want to use cooking oil as a foot deodorant, they are nuts. I have used this faithfully for nearly two weeks, if anything has made my dermatitis worse.
Great for pimples but price is a bit much

My skin is in a weird place as I’ve gotten older where it is very dry on some parts but if I use a super hydrating moisturizer, I break out with pimples. I’ve tried changing face washes, toners, and moisturizers to no avail. I used a soap from Shea Terra that had Tamanu oil in it and I liked it a lot so I thought I’d try some oil for my face. When I add a little of this oil to my moisturizer it does a great job of letting the stronger moisturizer hydrate my face but it keeps the pimples from appearing. The only reason I’m giving it 4 stars is the price is ridiculously high. I love New Chapter and never mind paying the higher prices they have because their products work so well. But I also use Shea Terra who are just as meticulous at using good quality ingredients and I just noticed the other day that New Chapter is charging about $16 for half an ounce while Shea Terra is like $12 an ounce. So I think I have to go with Shea Terra next time. I would happily buy this one again from New Chapter if their price drops.
First Rate Healing Oil

This oil is truly amazing. The first time I used it, I put it on a burn from a motorcycle that was about the size of an orange. It was the only thing I put on the burn even after it bubbled and opened. I have no scar and there was no infection. I recently had a mole removed and am putting it on the incision site. It's healing beautifully!
Like this product but should have dropper inside

I have been using tea tree oil for years. One day I searched oil product good for trouble skin, and came to tamanu. This tamanu does not give you immediate result but good fot regenerate your damaged skin also prevent acnes. I would suggest New Chapter put dropper inside of this product as I always spilt much more than I need. Plus I would recommend to blend this oil with another carrier oil such as jojoba etc, as I heard if you use this oil only sometimes it gives you too dired skin.
