Lime juice makes a great ingredient to any masks: olive oil, honey, yogurt, milk, egg white, you name it. I added a few drops of fresh lime juice to the mask and it dried out my pimples without leaving an ugly red scar. I also noticed that some of my acne scars have faded slightly. This is not psychological, since they've been staying there forever. After the mask, I applied my HG rosehip oil and found that the oil blended better. I think I should also warn that lime juice is highly drying, even for my oily skin so you'd better use it at most twice a week.

Lime juice is great for oily skin which is also sensitive! I was using freshly squeezed lemon juice in the morning when I woke up (1 hr before showering) to lighten some sun spots and brighten my skin but I found that this juice gives me bumps all over my face and left me with blackheads in unusual places (around my eyes.....). I thought I would give lime juice a try to see if it would lighten my spots. Well, I was pleasantly surprised with the results! First, when I wake up my skin is oily in the T-zone and after using the lime juice (not sure how long after as I do not look in the mirror again until I shower) my skin is no longer oily. This juice also zaps white heads! The white head is completely gone by the time I shower.... every time! It also leaves my skin super fresh. I think that this freshly squeezed juice works better for me because it is not as oily as the lemon juice; if you squeeze fresh juice you will notice that the lemon juice leaves an oily residue on your fingers. I need to note that I am not against using oil - as I make my own oil cleanser - see my notebook (2/3 hemp seed oil, 1/3 polysorbate 80, 1-3 Tbsp each of castor oil and rosehips seed oil), but leaving oil on my skin is too much for my super acnegenic skin! I have also read that lime juice works to balance oily skin. Good stuff!

I love lime juice on my face!! Recently I have been using a lot of natural products on my skin, including experimenting with different types of fruit. Tied for first place (along with pineapple) is lime! Every few days I will wipe fresh lime juice all over my face and let it set for awhile. Then I just rinse it off and follow with a toner and moisturizer.
I should also mention that I make my own toner out of green tea, limes, ginger and pineapple. My face has NEVER been brighter. I am glowing at all hours of the day. I will forever use all natural products. Nothing gets it done right, except for nature!

I ditto the review above. I dab some onto a spot when I get them and it dries it up in hours. If you keep applying it it will cause your skin to peel and new fresh skin will appear underneath. It's great as an all natural face peel.
The first time you apply it may sting a bit but it works better than all those drug store pimple creams and lotions put together AND it's all natural. I use either pure lemon or lime juice (I prefer the smell of lime) in the little plastic bottles you can get at any supermarket and have chosen this over Apple Cider Vinegar as an ointment/drink with water as ACV stinks. I also prefer it over the stink of tea tree oil as lime/lemon juice works the same on skin.
I have beautiful brown skin and have no intention of using anything to lighten my shade and gratefully this doesn't do that.
The first time I tried it I rubbed it all over my face and neck for 2 days to see what it would do. On day 2 my skin started peeling. I was peeling long strips off my face and lips like a sunburned lizard. You could see the peeling skin through my make up which wouldn't apply properly and it took about another 3 days before my skin returned to normal but once it did it was clearer as it peeled off a lot of the scarred skin from spots.
I wouldn't advice this for dry skin though as it will really dry you out. For greasy skin it works to mattify the skin great.

After reading all the wonderful reviews about lemon juice, I was intrigued. However, as I only had lime juice in the refrigerator, I started doing some reading on the internet. I'm no expert nor a dermo, but based on what I've seen, lemon and lime juice operate basically the same when it comes to acne control and skin lightening. I have several stubborn melasma spots and 1 LARGE cystic pimple that won't seem to budge.
So, I basically started using my lime juice as I would a toner at night. At first, it kind of stung, but after a few nights = no problem. My cystic pimple is going away much faster than it was w/ tea tree oil and my melasma spots that so far have been mostly resistant to MaMa lotion, Finacea, hydroquinone (2 and 4%) seem to be fading slightly - whoo hoo!
This is cheap, readily available, all natural and sometimes I even add it to my water for flavor = multi-purpose. :)
