If you don’t want to read this review I’ll cut to the chase. This oil is great!
This product drew my attention when I heard that some doctors in South America use it to treat cancer. Now I’m NOT recommending this for anyone who has an illness. I don’t under any circumstances personally believe supplements provide a miracle cure. That said the product seemed popular and thought, it would be worth a check to see what all the hullabaloo was about. I have very little expertise in the field of skin related products, but you don’t need a PhD to know if it works for you. That’s the key here. It worked for me but may not for everyone.
I decided to use the product on my face to see if it would remedy my dry red skin, something that has plagued me for years.
I found this product to be much improved versus the regular collagen face cream I’ve used before. It seems more natural and regenerative, and I experienced no side effects whatsoever. My face literally glowed after I apply just a few drops, but not in a “phoney Instagram filter way”. I just look a few years younger and no one objects that. With that in mind, don’t put it on if you plan to do a photo shoot right away, or to be exposed to professional lighting on a set because, in my case, the skin has a tendency to reflect light for a brief period of time. Wait until your skin absorbs the oil. I don’t know how this oil reacts to acne and other cosmetic issues since my face is blessed with no such problems, but multiple reviewers claim that the product is Non-comedogenic. I do however have a small number of age spots on my face caused by my advancing years and they seem to fade a bit if the oil is used frequently.
As with the most men I know, shaving combined with sweating, dirt, harsh wind and frequent temperature changes, causes my face to tighten in the most uncomfortable way. My skin becomes dry and starts to peel. I have been using this oil on my face for the last four months and I feel like I have a new face. Even friends have noticed the “glow.”
So what’s the catch? It can’t be all good. Well yeah, there’s the smell. It is hard to describe how it smells and I guess it depends on the person smelling it. For me, it is somewhere between cooking sunflower oil and a bag of old peanuts. Yes, it is not the most pleasant smell I’ve encountered and yes, my wife hates it, but it really doesn’t matter because it fades away rather quickly. The worst thing that can happen to me is to be denied a kiss for a little while.
Only another slight downside here is that it’s a little pricey at $14.95, but a bottle does go a long way.
Based on my results I highly recommendable this product. If you don’t mind the weird temporary smell, you can get a great product, good results and feel great.
