I'm 20 years old and have been battling with acne for many years. I have tried pretty much every single product out there that claims it will clear your skin.
I've tried Pro-active, Clinique, Olay, Aveeno, Neutrogena, Biore, Lush, the Body Shop... you name it, I've slapped it on my face. I am so happy I found iHerb and came across this product. After years of slathering chemicals into my skin, I really think my skin appreciates the simplicity of avocado oil.
Results were visible almost immediately, but after a month of use, I can say that my skin has never looked this good. My skin tone has evened out, my pores are smaller, my blackheads are practically non-existent, the small wrinkles I had on my forehead have disappeared, and the dark shallow skin under my eyes has plumped up and gained some colour.
I was really nervous of applying pure oil to my face. It seems so counterintuitive; everything I've ever read for acne help has advised to use oil-free products. However, I've learned that OF COURSE they are going to advise that, because they are trying to sell you something else. They are going to tell you you need to spread salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide into your skin because if they can get people believing that, they make money.
If there's one thing your skin needs, it's OIL, and I would bet my life that more than half the acne sufferers in the world have their problems because they are trying too hard to eliminate oil on their face.
Looking back now I can't believe how much money I dropped over the years on horrible "miracle products." It makes me sick that those companies still market their acidic, chemical-laden products to poor kids struggling with acne. They' don't care if their products partially exacerbate acne, because that keeps the people buying it. No company wants to totally cure their consumers!
Anyway, I think EVERYONE should use avocado oil, or at least seek more natural solutions and stop succumbing to the bullshark spewed by cosmetic companies.
