I've used this in the past then went off and tried many other things but have since gone back for two reasons one its completely natural and second it doesn't break me out but provides excellent moisturizing . As i have combination/sensitive/cant make its mind up skin I use this oil as my winter moisturizer and only at night. I love love love this and will be using it for many years to come =)

Completely healed a scar I had on my face--completely! I used it in conjuction with Nivea Cream, which has worked in the past on any nicks or cuts.
It took about a week and two days. There is minimal to no discolouration.
I also use it in the gym as my one do-it-all product--after the showers, it's great to smooth down hair, use as a face moisturizer, and on any dry patches. The brand is Kalaya and scent-less, odourless. Also it is useful for my baby's hair! Absorbs quickly and leaves his hair shiny with defined curls that don't frizz! Excellent product. Monoi oil is perhaps more versatile and overall better but this one healed my SCAR (bad waxer), so it gets an A+...

Call me a hypocrite but I just can't bring myself to use oil made from the ground up fatty tissues of an emu. I grew up with emus (in Australia here) and I can't bare to use it.
Then again I am a vegetarian and when possible use cruelty free and non-animal products.
I did use this once pre vegetarianism and it smells like meat. Horrid.

First off, I haven't been using this product long enough to give a full review on it but I was so excited I had to share. I ordered a 2oz bottle of Pure Emu Oil from amazon for about $9 (which is a fantastic deal for the purity) and It's sold by a company called Koru Naturals. I have a lot of red spots left over from horrible acne most of my life. I washed my face with my ponds cold cream and then washed my face again because I wanted to make sure the oil was the only thing on my face. Rubbed about 3 drops on my hands and patted it all over my face and neck and called it a night. Woke up in the morning and there was no redness whatsoever or oilyness. I was only originally going to be using it at night but decided to try it out under my makeup since it wasn't nearly as oily as I thought. It is a MIRACLE! Kept my oily face at bay all day but wasn't dry. Just perfection. Didn't even use a primer and my skin was smooth looking. I'll update this later when I start seeing more results but so far it's true love.

I have a strict relationship with emu oil. I've now had two different sorts, from two different brands i found on Amazon. On my face, it really breaks me out, consistently, and while i am too young, i tried this out on my mothers wrinkles and she much preferred a drop of Neem oil in her Argan oil for an instant fix.
However, emu oil is miraculous for the growth of eyelashes. I used this cheap mascara for almost a year and it caused all of my eyelashes to fall out, and i mean ALL OF THEM. It was a horrible situation and embarrassing. Castor oil gave me milia and for some reason caused any eyelashes that did want to grow again -grow out in weird angles. However, emu oil, after a month caused my entirely bald eyelids to grow strong, long, curly eyelashes, which now after two months are touching my eyebrows and growing in strong lines. It is a miracle. They used it a lot for burn victims to grow in eyebrows because the oil actually stimulates the formation of new hair cells.

I adore this oil. I've made the decision to only use natural skin care products on my face so I'm always researching what oils are beneficial for skin. I came across this oil and was intrigued with all of the aliments EO is said to cure. EO has a natural ingredient in it that is said to help better penetrate this into the deeper layers of the skin which is necessary for optimal results. A small bottle is about 9 bucks which i find to be a better alternative than spending 50 bucks from some big brand name for the same sized bottle. I apply it generously so it does get used quickly so in the future I will most likely purchase a bigger bottle.
I don't have acne prone skin but I have very sensitive, dry, and pale skin which is largely why chemical based products just don't work out for me. It moisturizes wonderfully and it sinks into the skin relatively quickly. I apply this to damp skin because you will achieve better results that way (in my opinion). Since I have such pale skin, dark under eye circles are apparent and I have found EO to aid in keeping them at bay. It has worked better than any other oil I have used under the eyes. It's great for skin texture/tone as well and I also mix this with Tamanu Oil and Rosehip Seed Oil, I'm an oil junkie!
The best part about natural products is that there are no risks associated with them unless you have an allergy to it. I find that my skin is happier and healthier with the natural products that mother nature has so kindly provided us with. This is definitely a keeper for me and I can't wait to see the results further down the road.

I bought Aus Spirit pure emu oil from a local natural food store and it was pretty expensive, about $20 for a small bottle. But you only need a couple drops so it lasts ages. I really don't like the smell of emu oil, for some reason it reminds me of meat. Ugh.
It works pretty well, I have combination, sensitive, acne-prone skin and I use this at night instead of a moisturizer. It definitely makes my skin soft, and suprisingly once it absorbs (rub really well for a minute and then let it soak in for a bit) it doesn't leave a greasy residue. But I wouldn't use it under makeup, it's too oily for that.
It hasn't done a thing to help heal my breakouts but doesn't seem to irritate or cause any further breakouts. I'd give it a solid 6 out of 10.. Meh.

Have been using emu oil for 6 months now. Once daily right after a shower. Had read Elayne Angel's advice to use it on fresh piercings to help them heal better. All you need is a drop massaged into the piercing. My piercing never got infected and is healing perfect - even my piercer says so. True testament was when it got snagged and was raw, I remedied it with the oil and healed just fine. Instead, a friend who wasn't on emu oil & with the same piercing also snagged hers but got an infection. People say it thickens the skin tissue - debatable but possible. Depending on the brand you use, it can also help with muscle aches. I sprained my back and used it as a massage oil to ease the pain. Worked well to relieve pain. Currently also using it on 10-year old stretch marks but have yet to see efficacy in that department. Expensive, hard to find the good brands. But a good one would be in a glass bottle and you can tell separates. Don't buy those that are viscous and don't separate without some cloudy sediment.

I am using this to treat a chemical burn on my chin and it is helping immensely. I have been using it for 2 days and already the rough patches are coming off, leaving pink healthy skin behind, this is more improvement than I saw in the 3 days before it. If I start slacking on application, it starts to get rough again... so I know it's the emu oil and not just time.
