Yes it works and it is very good for winter time. My face felt softer and mosterized and the smell did not bothered me as much, I am very sensitive with smells, so I recommond this product for people suffer from migrane and dry skin. brighten my skin and true it replenishes and rejuvinates the skin.

Bought tamanu oil to try out because it apparently helps with acne and scarring. I only use one pump in combination with jojoba as a carrier oil and I apply mostly over my problem areas such as blemishes. Has a strong woody scent when the oil is pumped out but it's not pungent.

it is very viscous, which is actually good, as it stays on well. for hydration i think I prefer rosehip seed lil, but this does a good job. the smell is a bit odd, but not off putting. it is slightly "green", but not so green that you look like the incredible hulk, so it isn't an issue. other reviewers commented that the colour made them look green! I am seriously pale, and yet I didn't look queasy after applying it.

compared to Life Flo, this is of even better quality imo and is more affordable. It is a heavy oil so do not apply to whole face, spot treatment only.

Aura Cacia Tamanu Oil 30ml. Read about the hype of tamanu oil and decided to give it a try. Am pleasantly surprised to find that the oil does improve my skin that is afflicted with eczema. I mixed drops of the oil with body moisturiser. After several weeks of use, eczema marks are lighter. But the more serious spots of eczema are still recovering. Am not expecting magic or quick fix from tamanu oil alone. Diet and lifestyle are all factors in managing eczema. But tamanu oil did make my "eczema" type of moisturiser work better.

I've used this daily for about 3 weeks and I haven't experienced any breakouts, which is amazing especially since I always get hormonal acne. It hasn't really helped with acne scarring (those icepick and boxcar scars) but it helps to fade away hyper-pigmentation caused by acne.

I use it day and night after cleanser, instead of moisturizer. For the past few weeks skin has improved somewhat and new acne is healed overnight. Will be repurchasing.
