93 out of 98 people would recommend this product14/06/2019, By AnnaThis oil is wonderful for effectively healing my adult acne and preventing further breakouts.08/05/2019, By AnnaI have bought this over and over again. Works wonders. I wish it came in a larger size.26/04/2019, By BotleI have problematic skin, this healing oil is doing wonders, not only to my skin but to my mood as well. I apply it every night on my face and neck, I sleep like a baby and wake up feeling rested and looking refreshed and glowy. As for the acne, the oil dries it out, not overnight but over continuous usage. My skin tone is slightly even now, the dark marks I had are slowly disappearing. I just bought another one :)02/04/2019, By JennaA little bottle of magic for troubled skin. Smells heavenly & is very effective.05/03/2019, By LunaSmall bottle, but works well! My face looks clear and it's not oily19/02/2019, By SusanThe smell is divine. I'm using this in the morning, and their flower therapy serum in the evening, and my acne is much less inflamed ad less painful. Very happy with this product. Wish there was a bigger bottle.26/01/2019, By ThiaReally helps with hormonal acne and pigmentation but requires diligent application and consistent use as it takes a few weeks before you see results. I mix a few drops with rosehip oil and massage into skin and it has really helped to reduce acne scarring and pigmentation. It also softens and smooths skin. Really great product28/12/2018, By DanielleNeed to use for about 60days to see results. One tube lasts 30 days, one application per day22/11/2018, By AnelReally liked the way this oil made my skin feel. works well for pimples09/11/2018, By Sandesh ElaineReally good for cystic pimples. Use in combination with the rosehip healing oil from this brand26/10/2018, By anonymousIt really worked for me. I went through quiet a couple of bottles. And it smells really good22/10/2018, By Danielle(Boyfriend's review) "I think its great, it works over time (used it twice daily for a month) so be patient. Has prevented frequent breakouts of cystic pimples and has lightened the appearance of old blemishes.24/07/2018, By LarisaThis product is amazing. Dries out pimples without leaving a mark and helps me with hormonal breakouts.26/06/2018, By ReneI have terrible problem skin and was hoping this oil would solve it. I suspect I panicked too quickly and stopped using it after the first round of acne flared up. All the other reviews are great and I'll definitely do a test round again to see.22/06/2018, By SamSmells amazing and can definately see an improvement in my skin28/05/2018, By AnnelienMy daughter was introduced to this oil by my eldest daughter, wo is forever on the hunt for natural skin products. That was more than a year ago and both of us are using it now. I even bought her friend some to see how it works for him.28/05/2018, By AmoriWould love if the product came with the pipette as in the picture, it is quite difficult to control the amount of oil that gets dispensed without it. Good product otherwise.16/04/2018, By DaunFirstly, my skin had mild acne and was very oily and dry.
I've been using this product for more than a month now and I intend to continue using it. For the first three days of using this product, it looked as if my skin was getting more breakouts with too much oil. But I decided to stick with it for at least a week and watch. After three days, my skin sorted of adapted to the product and then I saw my acne and scars getting clearer and clearer! Plus, my skin wasn't so much oily any more. I'm really happy with this product!
In fact, when I read all the nice reviews before buying this I was kinda skeptical of the reviews. But now that I've tried and seen the results myself, I can definitely recommend it to anyone :-) I'd love to try other products from VG - especially for my mother.07/02/2018, By LinriI initially bought this product to help with my acne scarring. It has not only helped me with my acne scarring but it has also helped to tame my hormonal acne on my chin which I have been struggling with for the past few years. I would recommend this product to anybody who is following the correct facial regimen, is on hormonal pills, eats well and still feels as if nothing is working. It really does work but you have to use it religiously.28/01/2018, By AnnaGoes a long way to healing the ravages of adukt acne. Why not a bigger bottle?26/01/2018, By GratefulLove it! I started to break out again. The next morning it was smaller and the day thereafter it was gone! Such an amazing product.08/01/2018, By AnnieWhat a beautiful product! A real face saver. I am on my second bottle and this oil works wonders with my hormonal cystic acne. Please could you package this in a bigger bottle? Even a 20ml would be great.05/01/2018, By BelaMy teenage daughter uses this regularly and is very happy. She has mentioned, however, that this new batch doesn't smell as pleasant as the previous ones.
21/12/2017, By LeratoMy skin loves this oil! Looking forward to seeing the results of long-term use.24/10/2017, By SarahThis stuff is a miracle worker for hormonal acne. Literally life changing.21/09/2017, By AstridI've been using a few drops with my daily facial moisturizer every morning and every evening for a week now and my skin has already starting clearing up, my blemishes are already fading and my skin always feels moisturized and less red.
Crossing fingers it'll carry on the ways it's going.
Loving it.05/09/2017, By LindaI was so looking forward for this product, and I hate not to recommend products, but I cannot use this oil.
It is probably amazing, but I could only use it once: I cannot stand the smell.
Then again, my friend is using it and loving it. So maybe it is just a personal preference.
04/09/2017, By TebogoThe first week I tried this, it worked wonders. Then I suffered terrible breakouts for about 2 weeks.
I mixed the remainder of my facial oil with black cumin oil, and my breakouts started disappearing within a few days.
I have mixed subsequent bottles and I have not had a single pimple since.11/08/2017, By ZitaAbsolutely love this product, the best remedy for any skin blemishes04/08/2017, By JennaExcellent .My teenage daughter showed me last night how it is healing her scars/marks from acne. Both my girls love it & always ask me to order more. Can really recommend this.01/07/2017, By MelLove this product. My teenager is also using it now as a breakout prevention product. A little goes a long way.12/06/2017, By JTgreat product that clears acne without leaving scars. the bottle is great as it is easy to dispense , a few drops at a time that go a long way. please make a bigger bottle that lasts longer.05/06/2017, By FulviaWhen I used this oil on my skin, I noticed blemishes healed faster and better. And it helps to control break-outs, but it's gentle on the skin.01/06/2017, By LeneciaI have a very oily skin, with that comes breakouts at times, and unfortunately leaves blemishes. I have not been using the product very long, but if I put it on at night, I most definitely feel the difference in the morning.28/05/2017, By Jo HAlthough this felt great on my skin the first time I used it, I've been battling the worst breakout I have ever had ever since.
I have to say, there are many other factors that are also contributing to the breakout: stress, weather changes, water quality. However, when I stopped using this it did help with the breakout a bit.
I was disappointed because the reviews were so great and oils have worked for me in the past. I will give it another shot once my skin gets better and all the other factors have been eliminated, so that I can evaluate its effect properly. But for now, it's a no go :(08/12/2016, By JennaThis healing oil really does work - my teenage daughters skin has improved tremendously when she forgets to use it for a couple of days you can see the difference. It has also healed the scars - can highly recommend this product02/12/2016, By Estinathis product is amazing for clearing acne though sometimes it can take up to two weeks or more but in the end it comes through. in the end its worth the wait. its a must buy10/11/2016, By PascalineI have noticed some improvement after using this for two weeks. Definitely has some healing properties but I still have new pimples popping up. Expected it to prevent that.17/10/2016, By JemYou know those really deep ones that keep swelling, dying down and then coming back up again over a month or more? Every time after an extraction I applied the oil. It really helped with the healing and kept the flakiness associated with extractions at bay. I havnt used it over my whole face but Im pretty sure it helped with the swelling and redness, and definitely got to work at healing the area which I made a right mess of trying to get the lump to come up and out.11/10/2016, By RobynI thought this was going to leave my skin oily but it hydrates the skin beautifully and in the morning my skin feels plump and smooth. Such a teeny bottle works wonders22/09/2016, By LeratoIve been using it for a month.
helping to balance your own hormones - This has not been true in my case. I still experience hormonal cystic breakouts using this 2x a day
alance sebum (oil) production in your skin -
Considering that my skin is combination dry - dry T-zone oily cheeks, dehydrated and ultra sensitive - this oil has helped with dehydration. My skin seems to be more balanced and does not produce as much sebum.
Ill keep using this oil for its hydrating factor... a little goes a long way.19/08/2016, By BongekaAfter I used this product my face had a glow and my partner used it too and he also noticed the difference. I ran out of it and my face became dull again. Will definitely be repurchasing.25/07/2016, By AngieI have been using this for a week now since I bought it, and in hope that it would lessen how long this one big cystic pimple on my chin took to go away, but instead I have 6 on top of each other now since using this :( I so badly want to believe in this oil because of the reviews, is there any chance for any of you that it got worse first after using it, then better? Its only my chin breaking out even though Im using it all over twice a day. The break out is probably the worst Ive ever had. And at 37 years old not cool :(05/07/2016, By LieslThis product is worth its weight in gold, and does as it promises. Soothing and healing, with noticeable results after just one application. The only negative thing that I have to say is that I would prefer a larger bottle size. Say 50ml or 100ml.20/04/2016, By YakshaI have sensitive skin and this product really soothes calms and disinfects. It even moisturises. Clears the acne as well.13/04/2016, By KathrynI had high hopes based on the glowing reviews, but unfortunately this product broke my skin out badly after just one use.07/04/2016, By YolandiI have been suffering with acne and oily skin since birth (or so it feels like) I am 38 and the acne is still going strong. This product is amasing. It does not dry out the acne, it clears it. It gives my skin an amasing glow and helps to control the oil on my face. Will not be without this product again09/03/2016, By BeateI bought this for my teenage son to combat signs of Acne and must say, it does not only work very well, it smells great and it feels wonderful. A great product, thank you.09/02/2016, By SuzanneEk dink nie daar is veel wat mens verder oor hierdie wonderproduk kan se nie (lees die vorige 50 opmerkings) maar ek stem heelhartig saam - dit beveg aknee en aknee-merke soos geen ander produk wat ek al mee te doen gehad het nie. Baie dankie aan Victorian Garden!
I don think that there is anything more that I could add to the previous 50 comments apart from agreeing: this is a wonder-product when it comes to fighting spots and the marks they leave on your skin. Than you Victorian Garden!29/01/2016, By ShuaibI have old acne scars from when i was a teenager and have been using alot of products and oils which tend to break out.Tried this here and its so light on your skin which i think makes all the difference.The scars seem lighter and my skin definitely softer!27/01/2016, By RindieBeen off the pill after 10 years for almost a year now.Have spent a small fortune on supplements topical products for the adult acne I developed since.

Highly recommended!26/01/2016, By Lynbut nothing amazing.21/01/2016, By NatashaI have used this oil for just over a week and I can not believe the difference. My skin is soft, glowing and my adult acne is 90% better. So far no breakouts and the previous damage is minimizing. At this price it is a steal!01/12/2015, By SThis product is my best purchase ever made. ive spent thousands of rand on products for my acne and none helped as much as this product which is a fraction of the price. people noticed a difference in my skin within 3 days of use11/11/2015, By SimoneI read all the reviews before purchasing this product and I am happy to say that I agree with all the positive feedback. I absolutely love this oil. Smells great, leaves skin looking hydrated and feeling soft. Don think I have bought a skin care product before that I have been as pleased with. Thanks Victorian Garden for such an awesome product.13/10/2015, By CatherineThis stuff is brilliant! I have ditched my night eye and face creams and just use this instead... And it does a better job then multiple lotions and potions combined! I only use 3 drops (so one little bottle goes a long way!) for my face and eye area; it leaves my skin soft, smooth and radiant. I have some mild acne scarring on my cheeks that look better too. New staple beauty go to!07/09/2015, By ShaaziaReally love this product. ..helps moisturise my dry skin and combat oilyness at the same time25/07/2015, By LucindaAmazing serum.

In addition Ive only been using it for less than a week so far.13/05/2015, By VanishreeThis is such an amazing product. This is the first product I tried out of the VG range and I was blown away.

Will buy this one again for sure!02/05/2015, By khadeejaI just love this product!

I no longer have the breakouts associated with my period. And a little goes a long way. Love it!28/02/2015, By SuzanneHierdie olie ruik heerlik en werk goed vir my vel wat tekens van veroudering en volwasse aknee toon. Wees net gewaarsku dat dit voorkom asof dit op die slegter voor dit beter raak prinsien werk. Ek vermoed ook dat dit een van die produkte is wat eers optimaal werk as dit vir
geruime tyd gebruik word.20/01/2015, By YasmeenI have been using this product for two weeks, and I really love it. I was concerned about breaking out, because my skin is very sensitive, but this product is both mild and gentle. I apply it at night and find that my skin is soft and light in the mornings, and best of all, not oily at all...its not dry either. I highly recommend this product if you have combination skin.17/01/2015, By KirstenThis oil is amazing! I have been having trouble with hormonal breakouts and this product has made a real difference.

Even convinced my husband to use it when he has problem skin. It clears up pimples almost overnight.12/08/2014, By KateHands down. I noticed results from day one.

A great product and a great find.04/08/2014, By Joy-AnneI got this for my 16 year old son about 6 weeks ago and he had very low expectations as hes tried numerous natural products unsuccessfully. Yesterday he came to me so excited as to how much better his skin is, so much so that two friends at school noticed and asked him what he was using. We will definitely be buying more.18/07/2014, By KathleenI ordered two of these for my sister as the product seemed to be very promising according to the reviews. Less than a week after she started using it a big improvement was visible on her acne prone skin. Very happy customer.
