This product has helped calm down my skin and is easy to use!

I no longer have the mild breakouts I once had before I added this to my skincare routine.
26/11/2019, By Meags
This product worked really well for me. It didn't clear up every single spot, but there was definitely a noticeable difference after the application, especially with inflammation.
25/09/2019, By Tegan
Love the applicator, does help some with breakouts
13/09/2019, By Samantha
It's a lovely product but doesn't seem to be working for my skin, but I think that's just me because my boyfriend is using it and it's working wonderfully for him
31/08/2019, By Sarah
This product works well for managing my pimples (dries them out and heals them quickly), but does not seem to stop my skin from producing more!!
06/08/2019, By Beverley
I have not given it a 5 because its only a week in. This oil is definitely effective in reducing breakouts, hormonal pimples are less aggressive and under control. Well worth the price.
18/07/2019, By Cleo
I've only been using this product for a week and have seen great results. So far no more breakouts and scars are definitely reducing.
11/07/2019, By Miko
works like a bomb, sorted pimple inflammation and reduced scarring. It also smells wonderful.
10/06/2019, By Rowena
Incredible for healing pimples and blackheads
07/05/2019, By Cecilia
I use this product together with The Apothecary Silken Skin oil. My breakout have definitely improved. It can be a bit drying if not used with a moisturizer. Great value for money as the product will last quite a while.
11/04/2019, By Emsie
Moisturises, not too oily. Definitely helps with breakouts.
07/04/2019, By Lorraine
Great little product for those monthly pimples! Does not clear it out over night, but definitely reduces inflammation.
13/03/2019, By Zet
I'm sure it's great for people with minor skin problems, but it doesn't do much for major breakouts
08/03/2019, By Carly

I've been using this right after I wash my face as a spot treatment and the results have been amazing, smells so good like you know "this is going to do my skin wonders", officially on my must haves for skin care.

Very happy with this product, moisturizes and soothes
15/01/2019, By Tebogo
Helped with adult acne
15/12/2018, By Melissa
Lovely smell, moisturising, absorbs well and my foundation works well with it. My spots aren't as big or sore as they use to be and the redness is fading. looking forward to trying the secret weapon No 2
12/11/2018, By Tarryn
I use it after washing my face and my skin feels a lot more smooth and looks radiant
02/10/2018, By Saskia
This product is truly is a secret weapon! I use it every morning and every evening and my skin just loves this product. My face feels smoother, softer and healthier. I will never go back to buying expensive creams which never really work for me.
12/09/2018, By Daniela
This product worked really well for me. It is absorbs quickly into your skin and took about 3/ 4 days till I started to see results.
15/08/2018, By Suné
I tried this product for a while, but it let my skin break out so it never worked for me. I also have sensitive skin.
02/08/2018, By Nicolette
I love the fragrant freshness of this oil. Ive been using it a few days now. At night its applied on problem spots on a clean surface and enjoy the benefit while you sleep. Has a calming effect. I love this product!
14/07/2018, By Nixx
Absorbs Quickly and light but not as effective with clearing blackheads. will keep using it and see if it just needs some more time for results.
22/06/2018, By Tammy
I didn't find this product very effective.
09/06/2018, By Cm
Loving it. Using it on black heads and problem areas (next to my nose)
28/05/2018, By Lucy
Takes a while but definitely minimizes my spots
03/05/2018, By Carla
Helps, but I think other health problems are preventing me seeing better results.
26/03/2018, By Michelle
This stuff is fantastic. I am a woman in my 30s with occasional spots. When I see one appearing, I put this on before bed and it's noticeably improved by the morning.

I was concerned about the hygiene of the roller ball, so I don't apply it directly to the spot but rather to a clean finger which I then use on my face.
25/03/2018, By Ennia
With regular use, this product started to really help minimise the size and appearance of blemishes without drying out the area.
04/02/2018, By EK
Really helps with blemishes and has minimised blackheads.
26/12/2017, By Nadia
I think it did help a bit. Took a while though. I used it for nearly 2 months and have recently switched to another product which I'm already starting to see better results with (hey gorgeous pore serum). I'm waiting a bit longer before I leave a review on that one though.
26/12/2017, By Jenna-leigh
helps to a certain point but everybody has a different skin
24/12/2017, By Astrid
Most definitely my secret weapon
21/11/2017, By Jenna-leigh
just got mine , and hopefully it will work . So far so good.
13/10/2017, By Lisa
This really works for blackheads and pimples. Just remember not to apply it directly onto your skin because this can spread bacteria. I always apply it to a clean finger and then on my skin. Also, don't push pimples if you are using this product as it will counter-act the process of removing them. (Personal opinion - I'm not a doctor :-) )
02/10/2017, By Dawn
I bought this product for my 13-year old niece to use! Ohmigosh – what an absolute gem of a product! In such a short time, her pimples on her forehead have vanished! Definitely a secret weapon for teenagers!
03/09/2017, By Juno
Smell good and absorbs realy well into the skin
21/08/2017, By Sade
My face is getting light hopefully the dark marks well fade too. This is a nice oil. ..I'm enjoying it and it is easily absorbed by the skin.
19/07/2017, By Ruth
I was sceptical of this stuff at first, but now I am pleased to say that it does exactly what it says on the bottle. It is a bit oily, but my blackheads are visibly reduced and pimples go away within a day or two. I will definitely be buying this again.
