V&M Naturals crafts all-natural products that can be used by both sexes–in fact, its namesake acronym stands for Venus and Mars! Priding itself on being the first true Emu Oil skin care line in the Philippines, the brand swears by 100% pure recipes that blend “miracle” oils and premium herbs. Its products are based on archaic beauty rituals that are still effective today, and their formulas are free from pre-made bases and strong sulfates, surfactants, and alcohol.
I am a fan of tsubaki oil and I first learned about its advantages to hair and skin during my trip to Japan where almost every brand has a tsubaki line! Anyways, I tried this as a serum after cleansing, but the oil is a bit thick for my standard that I mix it with my water based moisturizer to dilute and to ease the "lagkit". The effect is good naman because ot really keeps my skin supple but I'm afraid to put more than necessary because I might clog my pores. The dropper needs to improve because it's hard to open especially when then oil gets into the cap, it take me forever to open hahaa. It's pretty pricey for an oil/serum but it somehow delivers naman as to adding brightness to face.2 months ago
I use it everynight for six months now and I could say this really help me. I was suffering a very bad acne before and it leaves me with acne scars so, I was looking for ways to atleast help me lessen it when I came across this product. I read reviews about this and saw it's on 50% off, so i decided to try it. And now I can say that it really helps to smothen my face, some of my acne marks are gone now and those deep scars improved a lot. There are a lot of people who notices that my face improve and ask me what I am using.3 months ago
I bought this after seeing BeautyMNL editors try it and talk about the line- and wrinkle-removing properties. I can't say I see the same drastic difference, as my fine lines are still there, but it seems to work best for bigger lines like neck wrinkles. I've also used it on my scalp as it supposedly helps with dandruff; it removed the itching and a *little* bit of the flaking, but not enough for me to make it a regular thing. An oil might be too greasy to regularly use as a moisturizer, but this is good for treatments at night when you have the time to pamper your skin and be shiny.7 months ago
I bought this thinking it would help with acne scars but I didn’t see any effects. It was also a bit too heavy for my liking. It was way too expensive for the amount as well. Did not repurchase, or even finish the bottle. The smell was also a bit off-putting.7 months ago
I have oily, acne-prone skin, but at the time I purchased this I was just dealing with scars. This oil helped me get ride of the majority of my scars AND had a pore-refining and skin-smoothening effect! I also tried the Wayne Goss "foundation hack" which is to add a drop of beauty oil to foundation to make it blend better and look more skinlike, and this did the job perfectly. It also absorbs very quickly, so even if it's the last step of skincare at night, I don't have to go to bed with a greasy face because by that time it's already well-absorbed and plumping my skin as I sleep. Would definitely repurchase and recommend for any skin type that needs some refining and revitalizing!7 months ago
This broke me out! This oil is full of oleic acid, which can clog up the pores of those with oily, combination, or acne-prone skin, like me. The oil is too thick to my liking too. This is very moisturizing though, and could work for people with dry to normal skin.10 months ago
