I have been using the oil for 4 months and I must say, it is wonderful. I had to deduct a point for the smell which is quite overwhelming and lingers. It did not work on my active hormonal acne as a moisturiser, but is amazing for old acne scarring and pigmentation. I also love it for oil cleansing, mixed with hemp oil. Love it for my naturally kinky hair too. The bottle I bought has lasted 6 months thus far.

I use it n my hands and face for sun damage and it has made the pigmentation a lot lighter within a month.

Great for oily skin, reduce oily sebum production.
Fantastic for hair, moisturise and eliminates frizz.
I stopped using it on my hair however, as I don't like walking around with my hair smelling like curry!

On my stomach I have two different sets of stretch marks. One is very old the other is quite new. I started using it about 4 months ago. I see some improvement in the appearance of the marks. The old ones are no longer shiny. and the new ones are not as dark as they were though they are still raised. I also have not gotten any new ones. I massage the oil in once a day after bathing when my skin is still damp.
Its no miracle serum, Id say its about as effective as Bio Oil.

I have been using this oil for almost 2 months and the difference in my skin is astonishing - I don even wear base anymore. The deep lines around my mouth have faded and my skin looks nourished. I have exceptionally dry skin. I absolutely love this oil.

I wanted this to work so much - have used it for 1 month and it broke me out badly after having 0-very little break outs.

Not going to buy it again.

This does smell quite strong, but its an excellent moisture restoring treat for the skin.

I am using the oil cleansing method with this oil and it works wonderfully, my skin feels so soft and moisturised after. Yes it has a weird smell but as soon as I spritz on my toner its gone. Willl need to use it for longer to see whether there are any skin repairing effects etc.

Great all round for problem is the smell is a bit unpleasant.

This oil has a musky smell but I actually like it. I use it for my kids dry hair and its very effective.

Ive been using the oil for about a month and the difference to my face is unbelievable.
I use it daily on my face and the scarring from years of acne has been reduced sugnificantly.

I have natural etchnic hair - in dreadlocks - and the oil has definitely added life and shine to my hair.
My scalp is also cleaner-dandruff free.

I just ordered another bottle and Im only halfway through my first bottle.

Great value for money - and it lasts long.

Tamanu has become my go-to oil for everything from eczema to skin regeneration and hydration for my face, hands and feet. It took some getting used to, as it is much thicker than other oils and has quite a strong peppery scent, but not unpleasant, just different. I cannot believe how fast and thoroughly this oil absorbs into the skin - without leaving any residue. I use it during the day instead of hand cream and my hands are more moisturised than ever. Great on my feet too. I use quite a lot on my face once or twice a week as a treatment and massage with it. Results with eczema and rashes has also been fantastic.

This product worked wonders for my hair from the first use, smoother, sleeker, more manageable- works far better for me than the Argan, baobab and badger oil..
Only thing is the smell, like wash all your linen kinda smell, although benefits far outway this.
P.s. Product comes out very little at a time for a reason, no need to overdo it

I read a ton of info online about this product. Could not find in SA and eventually found it here- Thank you! Much cheaper than anywhere else- and it has amazing healing properties. I suffer with flare ups of eczema quite regularly and this oil is healing and soothing. It has slight curry odor which comes from the cold pressed seeds - but the good properties far outweighs the smell.

Ive heard many great reviews about this oil for facial skin care but this is the first time Ive seen it available in RSA. So thanks Nautica Organics and F-T-N for making it available. My experience so far has been... It has a slight nutty/spicy aroma. It truly is an excellent moisturizing oil (Ive tried many) which is soaked up quickly by the skin. I would say that its on a par, if not even better than Argan oil.
