This stuff is phenomenal - helps clear out my cystic acne without overdrying my skin. I mix this with my moisturizer to help fight breakouts during the day, and at night I just rub a thin layer into my skin. It smells like a mix of sesame and peanut oil, but you get used to it and it's not as off-putting as some people have said (for me, anyways, I like peanuts and sesame oil though).Definitely try this out! Another thing to note is that it usually gets solidified at room temperature, similar to coconut oil. The kind I have is in a little jar but easily transferrable to a little brown bottle with a dropper in it, which is a lot easier to manage for daily us than the jar.

The vendor I always purchase from is Ray's of Colorado. The oil is cold pressed, of excellent quality, and an excellent value. I'm at the age where I'm beginning to get the hormonal cystic acne in my chin area. Vicco and tea tree aren't working. CoQ10 cream isn't work. Neem was my last resort (the smell). It is working! The bumps literally shrank overnight!I use neem (literally 2 - 3 drops) in my lotions, shampoo, conditioner, hair oil, henna etc, so I know that it's a really good item to use (it's excellent for skin elasticity and softening), and using it in very small increments seems to alleviate the strong smell. It's great to use after blackhead extractions or a TCA peel too.

A product that every woman should own. It has so many uses: acne, dandruff, wrinkle tamer. Even helps grow out ingrown hairs!!!!!
This Winter has turned my face a scaly mess and mind you I have oily skin!!! I have been trying to use Natura products for my pimples since the regular products I use are not helping tame my continously dry skin. Enter Neem. Now I don't get the issue with the smell. To me it smells like melted peanut butter mixed with green tea...very earthy. Anyways, I used neem not just on my pimples but all over my face. Yes you heard it: ALL OVER THE FACE. For the past week I've seen a great improvement. No pimples, no redness. Although my face is still peeling....it helped slow it down. Plus, it has given my face a glow. Love it. HG stuff.

THIS IS AMAZING! I have cystic acne and oily skin. It stops eruptions in its tracks. It prevents breakouts from happening. This is the ONLY thing thats ever worked for me. I use it all day every day. I wash my face with tea tree soap. The combo is perfect.

I use this for a couple different things, so here are my thoughts on each~Makeup remover: Worked decently enough and got rid of all of my makeup, but rubbing this stuff near my nose ended with me being able to randomly smell it through the day no matter how well I rinsed it off. Not great, so I went back to my makeup wipes for this.Spot-treatment: Great! I use this as my overnight treatment for spots as I don't want to smell of it during the day. I find it's a nice sidekick for my tea tree oil as using that stuff too often can cause a lot of dryness or mild burns. This seems to do the same thing and helps heal skin but is moisturising instead, with the trade-off being the strong smell.Hair growth: Again, great. After reading another review I decided to try this on my eyelashes and brows to help them grow as I compulsively pull them out so they need all the help they can get. I just rub a little over the areas and leave it overnight and I swear they are growing back way faster than usual.A surprise knock-on effect of the above: I had two chalazions on my left eye leftover from styes I had a long time ago, at least a few years each. I'd tried hot compresses, cold compresses, salt, massages, etc. and they weren't going anywhere so I'd learnt to live with them. Surprisingly after applying this stuff on my eyelashes for a week or two they had magically disappeared!! Maybe this was some crazy coincidence, but I'm putting it down to this stuff. Even if it was awful for the other uses I would give it 5 lippies for this alone :)Also, to mention the obvious: this stuff smells strong. I think a lot of the negative reviews are down to this which is a shame because a lot of people don't seem to be giving it a fair chance and are putting others off. IMO if you get good results I think this is worth putting up with, so please don't be discouraged from trying it!

Neem oil and neem powder are a step too far in natural skincare and haircare. I am not particularly sensitive to smells - hell, I really like Amla and I can tolerate Shikakai - but Neem is something else. I would never dream of saying something so revered by many 'reeks' or 'stinks' as that's just plain rude. But it's true that the smell is not pleasant. Instead of applying it to your skin or hair neat try using it combined with other ingredients or try taking Neem capsules. I've been taking them for a while now whenever I feel under the weather and they really help.

I read about this stuff on the internet and decided to give it a try. I was desperate at the time I would nearly try anything! I went through a pretty bad hormonal change (this is what I assume) which caused my cheeks to break out in acne cysts. I've never been one to break out, here and there during my menstrual cycle, so when I was breaking out on both sides of my cheeks, I freaked! I bought this stuff at the health food store in my town for under 10$. Once I felt or even spotted a red mark on my face that looked like it was going to grow into an awful cyst, I would put this stuff on face. And by morning, it literally seemed like it stopped it in it's tracks from forming into a cyst that would typically last for weeks! In conjunction of using the neem seed oil, I also use ACV as a toner. Together, it works perfect!!! I haven't formed any new cystic acne. I believe ACV helped a lot. I think, in order for Neem seed oil to work it's best, you should use it as soon as you feel or see a pimple coming. As for the smell, it's not great at all, but it's not HALF as bad as a lot of people on here are writing. It's really worth a try! Here are some suggestions of products I use that leave my skin CLEAR, soft, and youthful looking. 1. I wash my face with Pure Castile Oil with Lavender 2. Apple Cider Vinegar as a toner3. Coco butter for the light scars I have left from past acne 4. Rose Hip Oil Please do your research on all these products. I believe in organic, natural products. ESPECIALLY when it comes to your face! Too many products have tons of ingredients that are very harsh. Since I've been using this regimen, I haven't broke out. Not even the normal hormonal pimples I get during or close to my monthly cycle. GOOD LUCK ;)

I got this from Whole Foods. It's a brand called Alaffia and they had it available in a pot for $6 or in a dropper bottle. The dropper bottle might be more hygenic, but this oil is a solid so it might be a hassle to melt it.First, the scent. I honestly don't find it to be bad at all. If it wasn't for everyone describing it in such colorful ways, I wouldn't have given it a second thought. It smells mildly like peanut butter if you use a little. If you use a lot it smells like peanut and garlic/onions. You can smell the sample at Whole Foods if you are that concerned about it.I have heard it makes a good spot treatment. I put it on and.... nothing happens. Next I plan to use it as an all over moisturizer, so I will update this review later.UPDATE: I have been using this as an all-over moisturizer and it works well. Keeps my skin hydrated. The anti-bacterial properties may be helping as well.

This product is great :-) it's smeels not good, but it really works! I just have used it for 3 weeks but my skin looks better and much more healthy. My combination skin looks more normal, I have less pores and acne. I don't like fragrance of this product but I'm going continue using this oil. I used 2 drops jojoba oil and 2 drops neem oil with wet cosmetic pad- it's the bets way for me
