As you can see from the photograph, this product is specifically for scar tissue as well as dry skin.  There are several products one can buy to diminish the size and color of scar tissue.  They don’t work.    I used several scar-diminishing products after my surgical scars healed and nothing made a difference.  They have diminished with time, but using the different products (including this one) to try to fade them did not work.  It didn’t make any difference.

I alternate using this oil and Vitamin E oil on my skin for dryness.  Between these two products, I have not noticed any difference in its appearance when using this oil as opposed to the Vitamin E oil.  This small bottle cost ten dollars so it is very expensive when compared to Vitamin E oil.

This product also says it is for stretch marks.  I have never been pregnant, but I think it would be worth your while to use a product like this every day to try and minimize stretch marks. 

The oil does not have a smell, which is a plus.  I would not use it at all if it had a smell.  The top has a hole in it and the bottle is plastic so you can squeeze the product out onto your hand without fear that you will get too much or that it will pour out everywhere.  It’s a bit thinner than Vitamin E oil so it does spread easily and some might find it more pleasant than other oils.  It absorbs well.

    I am a very body conscious person, and I hate to have flaws on my skin. I had searched long and hard and spent a lot of money on products that promised to even out my skin tone, help to fade stretch marks and get rid of scars. Read more

    Like a lot of women, I used to have a few white stretch marks across my hips from a growth spurt over puberty, and even though they werent very noticeable, they always bothered me, especially when I was at the beach or sunbathing. Read more
