Bought to help with ingrown hair scars. Didn't make a difference but not sure anything will. I think it's a good product nonetheless.
24/10/2023, By Tanya
Started using it a just over a week now - seeing a very slight difference.
15/10/2023, By Josie
This magic formula has faded my scars in a few weeks. I love the scent, and I love the roll on bottle that makes it so quick and easy to apply to scars and blemishes.
09/10/2023, By Mickey
Great product - love the soft & subtle scent. Still testing it out.
07/10/2023, By Inbal

My son has been using this in conjunction with The Apothecary Secret Weapon 1. After 1 weeks use, we are seeing a noticeable difference in his skin. Great product.
26/09/2023, By Cpillay
This is my second order, bought 2 bottles. Only opened and using one so far, not as potent as the first bottle I ordered few months ago, these new items, the colour is also lighter compared to the first bottle I bought, very disappointed
04/09/2023, By shopper
with consistent use I was able to see the difference within a week
03/09/2023, By 780tcp23
Excellent product, dried up my acne spots, helped to fade my marks, it works fast, it doesn't dry the skin, it isn't harsh on the skin, second purchase now, so impressed, happy, blessed to have discovered this gem
31/08/2023, By Katherine Comley
Lovely product. Gorgeous scent and definitely worth buying!
29/08/2023, By Milan
Nice product, but it was already a month expired when it arrived..maybe something to take note of.
i used it on my cuticles, so far it is working well
25/08/2023, By Shay
Not aure what I'm missing but this product really doesn't work. I have given it the benefit of the doubt and tried it for a long while however it appears to me as a gimmick.
15/08/2023, By Adriaan
Actually does seem to reduce marks and blemishes
20/06/2023, By Cheri
This stuff is so amazing! 11/10. I have sensitive combination skin and this is the only thing I have found I can use that doesnt cause irritation. It smells amazing, leaves your skin glowing and clear. I see results overnight, it's magic and I love it.
16/06/2023, By Daphne
There's so much to love and appreciate about this product. It is awesome value for money. I love that it dispenses only as much as you roll onto your body. It's compact and thus a great space saver....and it does a damn fine job. The formulation is good. I'm really loving it and will buy again in the near future.

27/12/2022, By Noeks
I absolutely love this product and have given a few as gifts so family can also see how great it is. The smell is divine (I even use as perfume). My dark marks have lightened a bit, use it on scars(old scars will take longer I'm sure). Just as a face oil its great and soaks in quickly. LOVE it and highly recommend.
20/12/2022, By Angelica
Secret weapon indeed! Absolutely love this tiny bottle.
Used the oil on my face, and I'm happy to say that my skin looks a lot more radiant and healthy. This product does not make your skin feel oily or sticky but leaves it feeling soft and smooth...just what I was looking for.

Thank you!
24/11/2022, By Violet
Such a gem, so glad I found this. After a recent surgery, I am using this to lighten the scars. Also love using it on my face every day!
14/11/2022, By Pearl
I have been using the product for about 2 weeks now and I definitely love it. I use it on my face for my dark marks. It gives my skin an instant glow and makes it really smooth. Still waiting to see it fade my dark marks the progress has been a bit slow but hoping for the best

I love this all natural product with clear manufacture and expiry date! I have good clear skin so I use it as a treat(ment) on alternate days. A good local product.
08/10/2022, By candybar
I'm so in love with the smell :-)
Superior product, feels great on my skin!
23/09/2022, By Rox
Well, this little bottle of gold is just that. Gold! I have quite a few acne scars on my chin, and it's lightened them in 2 weeks. I actually struggle to believe a product this affordable is this good! It'll last me forever too. I love everything the Apothecary brings to market. I tried their Secret Weapon number 1 first and was blown away that it stopped new acne right in its tracks. Bought no. 2 and was equally blown away. I've got combination skin and am 33 years old. It's something I would 100% buy again!
14/09/2022, By Nicolene
Wonderful product. Works wonderful, makes your skin soft and glowy without making it over oily. Great product for great price
13/09/2022, By Dah
I finished my first bottle. I saw visible results. I still have marks and spots from hyperpigmentation. I'm on skin treatment anyway then I use this outside to remove the marks. So far it's good. Worth buying. Its user friendly and portable.
30/08/2022, By Janine
I have (HAD) Bad pigmentation marks on my cheeks. Since usign this, they have faded and i can almost not see them. BEST Product so far for dark marks! You cans ee the difference.
25/08/2022, By Tabie
Best product to treat acne scars. I have been using for 3weeks i can see my scars are slowly fading away.
19/08/2022, By Happy
After 1 day of application my skin felt soft..I like the roller application it massages the skin and saves the ointment not to spill.
06/08/2022, By Nomza
This product is one of the best skin care product I have ever used, I am very happy that my skin is finally getting the natural glow and softness. I am really happy because I finally found something that works with my skin, my black sports are finally gone in just 10 days. Thank you so much FTN , guys buy this it is just the best for those who like oily skin
06/08/2022, By Penelope
I bought this oil for a young lady who's skin suddenly developed a rash on her face, working in a lab. Within 2 days she saw improvement.

I am absolutey loving this little bottle - it smells absolutey amazing & my skin feels very nourished - a little too early to see any marked difference yet in my dark marks but overall I am very happy with this
12/07/2022, By George
Didn't really think a little bottle like this would do anything but surprisingly it smells unusually good and feels light on the skin. Have only started using it and hoping to see some good results.
21/06/2022, By Cindy
This surprisingly seems to work. I was sceptical at first. Absorbs well into skin and marks are fading. The roller on the oil does not work well though - and is not very hygienic either. I have removed mine and this makes working with the oil a bit messy. Over all, happy with the product.
16/06/2022, By Chantelle
The best product that I have ever used for my skin. I have a sensitive skin and can't use any product on it. This product does not irritate my skin. Within a week I could see a difference in the apperance of my most recent scars. I contantly struggled with breakouts, this product together with Secret Weapon 1 cleared my face of all breakouts within 2 days.
I have already order another.
24/05/2022, By Leah
I love the fact that it has a roller. It makes it so easy to apply to my face and it also stops me from using too much. I just started using it so I'm not sure how long it will take to have any affect on my scars but I'm hopeful. It makes my clean feel amazing and soft.
20/02/2022, By Mama bear
This a great product, had a recurring ring worm that was not cured by any of the Dr prescribed meds. It only took a week for this secret weapon remove it. It's also helping with acne outbreak.
24/11/2021, By Shivaani
I bought Secret Weapon 1 and 2 and have been absolutely thrilled with them. I have only been using this product for about 2 weeks but am already noticing a marked reduction in the appearance of my acne scars-the old ones and the new ones! In addition, it smells amazing!
14/09/2021, By Freya
worked really well when my daughter fell down and had a few grazes on her face. For myself I mostly use it as a perfume as I really like the smell.
26/08/2021, By Mo
Good product especially for the price
13/08/2021, By Clair
Has all the super power ingredients for diminishing pigmentation, so I'm hopeful.
Strong scent of Frankincense
11/08/2021, By DOREEN
Live the oil. Really helping for my blemishes spots.
29/07/2021, By CARMELITA
Love this product.
Bought it to try for myself. The whole family has been using it. My husband for razor bumps as well as my tween going into puberty.
Actually came to place another order. Also lasts very long - up to 5months now.
02/07/2021, By Gabriele
bought both roller - Secret Weapon 1 and Secret Weapon 2 for my teenager daughter . Its easy to use and really helped with her blackheads and acne-scars.
23/06/2021, By Luu
I used this oil for two days on my dark spots and the following day I woke up with pimples.
23/06/2021, By Carolyn
Using this on my hands which suffer terribly during winter and I love it.
18/06/2021, By Denisha
Easily absorbed into the skin and smells great!
09/06/2021, By May
Supports the healing of the scars very well.
04/06/2021, By Sphiwe
Good product
24/05/2021, By GINA
Easy to apply with roll on ball, lovely smell. Too early to see results.
21/05/2021, By Zelda
Lovely smell and feel. Use it on my face and scars. Leaves skin soft and lovely. Bit obsessed really :)
17/05/2021, By Mariska
Well priced to make for a lovely stock filler to ensure free shipping and handy packaging with roller application
09/05/2021, By Fany
I love this product. It makes my skin look better.
03/05/2021, By Linzi
Still too early to tell if it heals scars, but the scent and feel of the product is amazing.
23/04/2021, By Nondyebo
Too soon to tell
21/04/2021, By TL
Awesome products! I use it for any scratch or injury including that itch just before you get a fever blister. Haven't had one since. Also use on out cats and dogs.
18/04/2021, By Mamokete
Great product. I saw changes within days of start.
08/04/2021, By Mandy
Too soon to tell but it does fase old pimple scars... however more entrenched scars seem like they will take a long time. AMAZING SCENT! And very moisturizing
08/04/2021, By GINA
Easy to apply with roll on ball, lovely smell. Too early to see results.
31/03/2021, By Shabi
It's my third week using it, it softens my skin but I haven't seen any changes on my dark marks, yet
25/03/2021, By Tenille
I can't give five stars yet, as I have yet to see results. It does soften my skin wonderfully.
23/03/2021, By Kris
In love with this product. Roll ot over my skin that has break outs and within a few days my skin is clear again
23/02/2021, By Johanna
The marks on my face are fading
08/02/2021, By Khoska
I battled with eczema for most of last year. Prescription ointments healed it part way but never completely. I finally tried this oil instead, reasoning that what would help scars heal might soothe the constant irritation. It took a few days to see results, but steadily the eczema has healed completely.
06/02/2021, By Greenie
02/02/2021, By Bianca
I would like a bigger bottle. Other than the small size I have no complaints
29/01/2021, By Lucille
I love this product. Highly satisfied
26/01/2021, By Zonke
Great smell and nice texture to the skin
04/01/2021, By Margo
Would def buy again, thanks!
29/12/2020, By Simonne
So happy with this. I thought it will run out quickly as I use it twice a day on my face and I'm very impressed it will last me a month and R65 for a month what a bargain. My face is so soft and it's not very oily and that's a bargain
23/12/2020, By Queen B
I love it, I absolutely love it. I can see a change on spots on my face and body. I wish it lasted longer though.
18/12/2020, By Clayten
11/12/2020, By Chaney

My all-time favourite beauty product! It melts into the skin and does not stain your pillow. Amazing value for money:-)
13/10/2020, By Gifto
A secret weapon indeed. I am a serious waist cincher. So my waist trainer belt would leave me with marks on the sides of my waist. So this oil has actually 'weapon' out the dark marks.
12/10/2020, By Jenny
I love the scent!
12/10/2020, By Melanie
helped to fade scars, dark spots and marks over time
05/10/2020, By Janna
28/09/2020, By BeccaBee16
Love how this product smells, and it has a great roller for easy application. Have only just started using it, so not sure of the effects yet, but I have super sensitive skin that reacts to almost anything I use, and so far no adverse reactions which is great!
28/09/2020, By Lineke
it was alright really
10/09/2020, By Danielle
Just started using so can't see major differences yet, but smells, good and leaves a dewy look.
28/08/2020, By Monique
25/08/2020, By Elizabeth
24/08/2020, By Carina
Its okay, haven't seen much difference since using. The smell isn't great and the packaging is very cheap. My label is completely unreadable at this stage.
11/08/2020, By Prenessa
Half way through my first bottle, using twice a day. Helped with acne but no change on marks. Will continue to use
08/08/2020, By Crystal
I like the feel of the oil. It has an astringent scent. I would like the label to be a material that is water and oil resistant. I would also like the ingredients to be listed on the label.
06/08/2020, By Greenie
06/08/2020, By Bharly
Haven’t found it very useful. Disappointed.
28/07/2020, By Belinda
It’s too small, but it does work
25/07/2020, By Rutendo
I’ve been using this product for two months, 2x2 each month. I can see a slight difference with my scars, but my problem it’s too small.
25/07/2020, By Karin
Sadly this product did not work form me. I have a sensitive skin and this product seemed to irritate it more. Made no impact on the blemishes.
22/07/2020, By Tamrin
Works great for acne scarring on my cheeks! They have decreased quite a bit since using this product.
16/07/2020, By Portia
I love my secret weapon, it does wonders for my skin
24/06/2020, By Refiloe
So far using it with the herbal toner I'm seeing a difference and I'm happy. It also add moisture to my skin
09/06/2020, By Natasha
Love this oil. My skin looks and feels great especially during the winter.
08/06/2020, By M
Didn't really do much for me.
30/05/2020, By Jo
Has a lovely spicy smell.have been using it for a few days only and already see it working on the occasional pimple break out.just
30/05/2020, By Kayla
Love this product! Have noticed a huge difference when putting this on my skin before bedtime. Really helps with evening skin tone and assisting with fading scars and acne marks. I’ve used to Secret Weapon 1 before and also really enjoyed it for helping with active breakouts. I’ve not used the two together though so can’t speak to that. The only downside is I wish the formulation came in a bigger bottle with a pump or dropper as opposed to a roll on only.
28/05/2020, By Yasmin
I used it in combination with the secret weapon 1 and it broke my skin out. Will try it again separately to see if it works.

13/03/2020, By Nduh
It really a good oil, calms skin and reduces dark marks and patches, it also keeps the skin moistured and glowing, the only problem is that it too small , it doesn’t even last a month
24/02/2020, By Fats
Im really happy with this product. My dark marks are fading
31/01/2020, By Clair
I was sceptical at first but this secret weapon has blowen me away!! After just 4 weeks my facial blemishes are as good as gone and my skin feels amazing. I put it on my face, neck and chest every night before bed and my first roller isnt even finished yet. So it goes a long way. Worth a purchases. For the price it os a serious score for a facial product.
05/01/2020, By Helper
Well done
19/12/2019, By Mandisa
Love it will buy again
14/12/2019, By Philly
This is a good buy and I really like how easy it absorbs into my skin!
30/11/2019, By Michelle
My skin definitely feels great since I added it to my skin care routine. I don’t really have problems with acne scars or pigmentation so can’t comment on effectiveness for this.
29/11/2019, By Natalie
It improved my skin tone
16/11/2019, By Jess
A great product that has helped me fade my horrible adult acne scarring, this really works!
16/11/2019, By Anon
Hasn't made a radical difference to pigmentation but does work a little. Keeps my skin healthy and soothed. Easy to use. Lasts a long time. For the price I would purchase again.
15/11/2019, By Natasha
I love this product. I have been using it for just 2 weeks and my skin is looking and feeling great. Blemishes have already faded so I no longer use as much make up as there is not a lot to cover up. So glad I found this secret weapon.
12/11/2019, By Mich
love this oil, helps with pigmentation
06/11/2019, By Kim
I haven’t used this on any blemishes..I love the smell so much that I use it as a roll on perfume.
30/10/2019, By Hendriana
I have noticed a difference and I'm on my second roller bottle.
20/10/2019, By Nicole
Have definitely seen a reduction in acne as well as acne scars. Smells great, absorbs well into skin and makes skin feel soft and healthy.
09/10/2019, By Wanda
This has really helped break down a two month old keloid scar on my leg, to the point that the mass has come away completely. I never thought this scar would recover anything close to this well. I think the action of the glass roller ball together with the natural oils have worked this little miracle. I am so impressed
16/09/2019, By Thobisa
Good for dry to normal skin, although I used for a month on face. It nourishes my face well.
05/09/2019, By Tess
I have used this oil every night for the last month and can definitely see and feel a difference for the better. My skin is softer and i have less breaks outs which is a blessing if you are a forty-something person!!!
04/09/2019, By Jenilee
Enhancers my skin very subtly, no difference with reducing marks though after weeks of usages
12/08/2019, By Janine
My first put-off is the oil-soaked label that makes the bottle look old and unappealing. The oil comes on very yellow which leaves a mustard-yellow residue. I don't like the smell at all either. So I can't really tell you if it works because I've not been using it.
31/07/2019, By Gabbey
I’ve noticed my dark marks lightening slightly over the past few days, think I’ll need to use it for longer in order to see the results on scarring. All in all a great product
18/06/2019, By ch
I'm trying three different Rose Hip oil manufacturers, this is the best packaging and easiest way to apply by far, still to soon to say what effect it will have on my skin but so far no complaints.
05/06/2019, By Samantha
I'm in love, love the smell and feeling on my skin. Still early days but definitely appears to be a great product.
Love the fact its natural.
28/05/2019, By Jade
Makes my skin feel really nice and smooth. Too soon to say anything about the effectiveness for scarring.
20/05/2019, By MrsBell
This oil comes in the best packaging. A roller ball tip means it is super easy to use and the apothecary look is clean and modern. I haven't seen a change in pigmentation but it has only been a week but it has stopped some of my 'scratching and poking' turning into a mess and seems to be working on clearing up spots!
16/04/2019, By Kim
So far so good. It leaves my skin with a glow but I'm still waiting to see a difference with my pigmentation.
19/03/2019, By Yolandé
I have a closed burn wound and have been using this for a bit more than a week now. It has gone from a vivid red to a light pink color. I think this product is promising!
17/02/2019, By Nichole
Treats scars very well - quite happy with this product
04/12/2018, By Khanya
I would definitely recommend this product! I have seen a huge different from spots that have been there for years! and I have only been using it for 2 weeks and a few days. I love it. I just only wish it came in a bigger bottle
12/11/2018, By Lee
My acne scars seem much lighter after 3 weeks of continuous use. I'll be using this until they have completely faded
09/11/2018, By Tanusha
I love it, it smells so good, and makes my skin glow.
26/10/2018, By Sasha M
This oil absorbs so well and I have noticed a slight difference in scars but only using for about a month.
19/10/2018, By Lebohang
I haven't used it yet, but I believe in it so much that's why I bought it, so I don't want to mix all products I will start with others as I have seen results of organic oil.
26/09/2018, By clarebear
Regular use of this little wonder has visibly reduced my stretch marks :) Such a great price and it lasts for aaaaaaaaaaaages!
21/09/2018, By Janice
Great combination of oils. Bought one for myself for face scars and one for a friend you had a c-section.
07/07/2018, By Saad
The roller gets stuck a lot of times. You've got to roll it a bit on the back of your hand first to loosen it. So that's a bit annoying. It didn't do much for my scars though even after a few months of use.
09/06/2018, By CM
Love this product but it is too soon to comment on its effectiveness
24/05/2018, By Ani_N
I use this every morning before my sunblock. It absorbs into the skin and doesn't leave it oily. Not too sure about the effect on pigmentation or scars...but overall a good facial oil.
20/05/2018, By Ens
Lovely scent and leaves my skin feeling nourished and soft. Soothes and reduces redness from blemishes and diminishes their size. I haven't used it for long enough to see a full reduction in the appearance of scars and pigmentation. Not too keen on the colour left on my face.

The roll on mechanism doesn't work. I had to decant into a spray bottle. Too early to tell yet if it is effective.

I had high hopes for this product but it didn't really deliver, my skin did feel nourished however it didn't help with blemishes or pigmentation and I was not keen on the scent.

Using this religiously on a specific scar or blemish, you'd be amazed at the results after 2 or 3 weeks.

For 2 weeks of using Apothecary SW2, I am thrilled my skin is responding positively. #172279018.
