I have extremely sensitive and reactive skin, cannot use any essential oils on my face. I wasn't sure when I first heard about this if it was a plant oil or essential oil; it is a plant oil, BTW. Still, I must tread carefully with any new product, and had been having a tough time with my skin when I first discovered this. I found it on clearance (store changes, nothing to do with the …Read more

True Tamanu Oil is one of those rare, miraculous, "cure all" gifts from nature. It has a natural SPF of approximately 22 blocking both UVA & UVB rays, it works absolute wonders on scars, stretch marks, surface wounds, acne, boils, cysts, diaper rash, psoriasis/eczema, and even slows the aging process. It also penetrates deep enough to be helpful with deep pain and inflammation …Read more

I absolutely love tamanu oil. It has a very distinct smell but I started to like it with consistent use. It's perfect for moisturizing oily skin. You won't be oily when you wash it off. It's amazing at preventing acne. It will reduce your pimples to half the size in one use. The only con is that I didn't see any change in forehead lines so I wouldn't use this as my only …Read more

I added this to my skin routine after several k-beauty blogger stated this was a great oil to heal/fade post acne lesions/marks. I have used Argan oil for years, so I gave it a try. I purchase NOW brand for my skin oils. First this is a much thicker oil than Argan oil. So for my last step in my skin care I mix the 2 oils together. I use 4 drops of Argan oil and 2 drops of Tamanu oil for my …Read more

I bought 100% organic Tamanu Oil from Inn and Co on Amazon. It is grey in color. It smells nutty like almond oil. It is only Tamanu Oil and nothing else. If your oil smells earthy and or like curry, you don't have the right oil. In less than a week, this oil is taking care of an age spot like nothing else (Retinol, Retin-A, or heavy moisturizer). I apply it on the spot and also all over my …Read more

Too heavy of an oil for me - and I have dry skin. I like Rose Hip Seed Oil much more.

This didn't wow me in any way. By far my favorite facial oil is rose hip oil---it brightens, heals scars, calms skin, rejuvenates, and all other wonderful things (see a detailed review on my page). Tamanu oil didn't do very much for my skin, at least nothing more than what rose hip oil already does. My gripe with tamanu oil is *IT BURNS MY EYES* and *SMELLS UNPLEASANT--LIKE CURRY*. I …Read more

It's drying my skin and making me break out with deep cyst acne...

I have been using this oil since 1/9. The claim is real!! I was using Avocado oil which is still great on my acne prone oily skin but I guess Tamanu oil is working better as it is anti-bacteria and helps regenerate …
