I tried using this and it made my skin very soft. I used only this on my skin, to see what it would do, and it helped mostly the red marks left from acne. It didn't seem to prevent acne, so it could be a great combination when used with something that prevents your acne. I only used up to 5 drops, which is plenty. I would say 2 or 3 drops is great, because if you use too much it will make your skin shiny and look oily. You can even add this to your moisturizer, by adding some drops of it. The brand I used is from Life-Flo. It's cheap and it lasts a long time since you only need a few drops. I mostly just used it to repair my skin from using benzoyl peroxide. My skin has seemed to not like benzoyl peroxide anymore, since rashes formed and the redness never went away, so I used this to repair the damage and lighten the general redness and red marks. I would say give it a try for a month, before you judge it. Although it helped, I'm trying something different that appears to have even better results while preventing acne as well - apple cider vinegar.
Out of all the oils i tried. This would be the one that worked the most for me when applied as a face mask.. according to my research, all oils are good for the right person. It really depends on your skintype as to what oil you should use.
My sons tried many moisturizers with the regimen and none worked well. They all stung and left their skin red, or they caused breakouts. I finally bought them the Now brand grapeseed oil to try and they have been very happy. They use it as their moisturizer on the regimen. It is very gentle, doesn't sting, and gives adequate moisture. It also is doing an amazing job fading hyperpigmentation. Since starting the grapeseed oil their skin has never looked better. It just seems to work perfectly for them.
I only use oils on acne sparingly because they tend to block my pores. Grapeseed oil has a high concentration of vitamin E, and I found that it helps slowly fade my melasma...but it takes a long time so you need to be patient. I use pure grapeseed oil btw, the kind that's used for cooking. I clicked Yes on recommend, but only for post-acne hyperpigmentation not active acne.
I have had acne for 2-3 years, cystic, moderately-severe. I had lost hope so many times and truly thought I'd have acne for years to come. After doing extensive research I came upon this oil (again, because I had heard of it years ago) and decided to try it as another attempt. I bought a big bottle in Whole Foods' cooking section, nothing fancy. I've been using it twice a day and what can I say? 90-95% of my active acne is gone. Hyperpigmentation has been reduced so much, it's amazing. GSO is much more potent than vitamin C and really exfoliates the skin, which is why it's so good. I did not experience any breakout initially or anything. It's a shock but I saw a difference and felt huge relief from the first week. It's only been a month and I'm super excited to see how it keeps healing my skin. If you're reading this and don't know what to do because of mixed reviews blah blah blah...here's the thing, as repetitive as it sounds everyone has very different skin. It's taken me years to find something that continuously works for me. This may be your salvation or it may break you out. I've tried other oils (argan, olive, coconut, emu) and even though they all worked for a lot of people they did nothing for me. That's how it is sometimes. So just keep a steady and gentle regimen until you find something that works for you, giving it at least two weeks.
Hope only the best for everyone reading :) God bless.
