I have slightly dry skin - Tamanu oil moisturizes my skin without making it oily (e.g. Grapeseed is too drying, Jojoba is too oily). A little bit of oil goes a LONG way for coverage. I find this oil makes a great base before putting on my makeup. I've been using Tamanu oil for about a year, I've never had issues with acne/breakouts using it. I've also used it on my husband who has a different skin type than me and he thinks it's great too. I will be using Tamanu oil for years to come.

When the bottle of oil arrived, the oil was very thick. It needed a water bath to make it less viscous. The less viscous oil itself is still pretty thick. I tried using this alone on my acne-prone skin. It really does help to sooth the redness and also reduce the size of existing pimples. Later, I decided to make a blend of 50/50 Tamanu oil and Rosehip oil to get an oil that's less viscous and yet, still beneficial for acne-prone skin. This blend is doing wonders so far.
