Neem Cure Review and Giveaway!

November 7, 2012By 47 Comments

Is there anything Neem Oil can’t fix?! If you recall my last skin care post, you know that I deem Just Neem products to be a magical savior and I bow to them. I attribute my skin clearing up to Just Neem and Just Neem only. I mean, organic, pure products that ACTUALLY work? You peeps really know how to tickle my fancy. I got nothin’ but ♥ for ya!

The skin gods and goddesses that work over at Just Neem sent me their Neem Cure product to test out. And duh, it worked magically. I was advised to use this product as a moisturizer to prevent new breakouts from forming. It did the trick and made my skin feel silky smooth, but not oily. Win!

I was mostly impressed with the way it cleared up my irritation bumps from shaving. I have really sensitive skin and any time I wax or shave I always have shave bumps—yuck! Well, not anymore thanks to this bad mama jama.

*Sigh* it’s the little things in life that make it worth living.

Wanna try this awesomeness out for yourself to see what all the fuss is about? Of course you do, silly!

To enter to win this “Neem Cure” serum by Just Neem, simply “like” Just Neem on Facebook and comment below with the craziest skin-clearing home remedy story you have. All entrants must be residents of the US to enter to win. The winner will be chosen at random and notified on November 19th, 2012! Good luck! xx

    I read on Web MD that neem should not be taken during pregnancy, because it causes birth defects and should not be taken while trying to get pregnant, because it causes miscarriages. Scary!

    You’ve convinced me to try Neem! My main problem is w/ dry patches on my face. I have sensitive skin like you & can’t stand that stupid shaving irritation. No lotion I’ve tried seems to make a difference.
    My question is, have you tried any other products w/ neem besides this specific Neem Cure by Just Neem? I looked at their site but was bummed by how expensive it is for a tiny bottle. I’d gladly pay that price after knowing it works for me but I want to be sure! Just Neem has a moisturizing lotion too & it looks like more product for your money, but I wonder if that will be as effective? Would any (vegan) lotion w/ neem by OK or should I stick to the oil? Thanks for your advice!

  3. Lauren says:

    I’ve always wanted to try Neem. I have mild acne that nothing seems to help–acne treatments are usually too strong and stuff made for sensitive skin doesn’t seem strong enough. I have seborrhoeic dermatitis on my scalp, under my eye brows, sometimes in the cracks of my nose and tea tree oil is the only thing that makes it go away.

    My tip is for damaged hair!

    I’m always changing my color (It’s currently sea-foam green and yellow), and thus my hair can be very porous, limp, and frizzy at the same time. I highly recommend using raw coconut butter/oil once or twice a week to repair damage, add moisture, and bring back the shine to dull, lifeless hair.

    Simply take a coin-sized amount of raw coconut butter and warm it up a little in your finger tips, then apply it evenly through your dry hair from ends to roots. Leave it in for about 30 minutes or so and then shampoo and condition with your favorite haircare products.

    The difference is easy to see even after the first time, and continuous use quickly improves hair so it can withstand getting colored all the mermaid hues you desire : )

    Good luck to everyone, it’s awesome to read what y’all have to say =^_^=

    I used baking soda, sea salt, and apple cider vinegar–all at once. Let’s just say that My skin was ultra sensitive for a few days!
    I’ve been having trouble with acne recently, so thanks for this giveaway! I’ve been experimenting with olive and coconut oil facials for the past few weeks, to various success. So excited!

  6. Jennifer says:

    I use Argan oil for clearing up blemishes and healing the ones I’ve picked at. Argan oil dries up the pimple and then, helps the redness go away quicker. Great for cuticles, too!

  7. Sabrina C says:

    I use salt. Pure salt, nothing else. Hurts like a mofo sometimes.

    yikes! forgot that honey isn’t vegan. sorry, i’m a newbie to the vegan lifestyle.ᶘ ᵒᴥ~ᶅ

    pardoning my blunder, I’ve found an even better skin care solution that’ll really knock your socks off; a xanthan gum pore strip alternative to drugstore pore strips!

    you will need:

    -1 TBSP xanthan gum
    -100 ML distilled water
    -a mixing bowl and mixer or blender (to combine the ingredients)
    -a piece of thin tissue or toilet paper
    -a towel (preferably small)
    -a small clean brush (to apply the mix)

    Step 1:
    Blend 1 TBSP of xanthan gum and 100 ml of distilled water (preferably using an electronic blender; mixing alone without one in a bowl with a hand stirred mixer will have to be done for approx. 30 minutes). blend until mixture is of similar consistency to wallpaper paste (slimy like goo!) and not clumpy.

    Step 2:
    Cleanse your face as you normally would until all makeup, lotion, etc. is completely removed from the desired area of pore removal. Wet a towel with warm to hot water and leave it on your face for about 5 minutes. Gently wipe off any dead skin. This will open pores and ensure all the gunk to be extracted with the mix!

    Step 3:
    Tear the desired amount of tissue to the area you’re applying it to. Make sure the tissue is thin.

    Step 4:
    Using the mixture, paint a thin, even layer using a clean brush making sure to be thorough and not miss any spots like the crevices at the sides of your nose. Let it dry completely.

    *If desired add an extra layer to ensure maximum coverage.

    When the first layer or two of the mix is dried, the skin should feel tight and restricted.

    Step 5:
    Add your second or third layer of the mix, but keep it wet. while it the area is still wet, apply the tissue paper. split toiler paper even thinner for an extra grip onto the mix. A closer grip will give a deeper extraction of the pores. Place it gently onto the whole area where the mix is applied making sure once again not to miss any creases.

    Repeat step 5.

    Step 6:
    Add one last layer of the mix on top of the second tissue. This serves as a top coat ensuring the product is saturated.

    Step 7:
    Once the whole area is dry, slowly remove the tissue. It should all come off at once, extracting the gunk from your pores.

    Lastly splash cold water on your face or gently rub an ice cube over the area to close the pores.

    P.S. The remaining mix can be stored in a closed container in the fridge for up to a month!

    Enjoy your clean and gunk free pores!ᶘ ᵒᴥᵒᶅ

  10. Laura says:

    Yep, I’ve smeared toothpaste on my face to clear up blemishes. It stings so I don’t really recommend it.

  11. Vegyogini says:

    I don’t have any crazy remedies, but I do love all-natural ones. Thanks for the giveaway, I liked the page.

  12. Audrey says:

    I’ve used lemon juice in attempt to clear black heads. It never seemed to work, though.

  13. Phoenix says:

    I know people who’ve used baking soda as an underarm deodourant, & ended up with skin rashes, so I wouldn’t use on my skin!

  14. susan bloom says:

    When much younger, I also tried toothpaste to try to cure a zit quickly…lol… I think this product might work better!

  15. Aless says:

    I tried this at home remedy that was said to get rid of blackheads and imperfections in as little as a week! the formula was simple. just mix equal parts nutmeg, honey and olive oil or soy milk and volia! smooth as a babies butt skin and instant noticeably smaller pores and less blackheads. in a week’s time my skin was as clear as it was soft.ᶘ ᵒᴥᵒᶅ

  16. Kathleen Wissenz says:

    Definitely tea tree oil along with plenty of water & sleep!

  17. Marcia S says:

    I tried toothpaste once to help clear up a pimple. Didn’t work. :(

  18. Hanna says:

    Toothpaste crazy enough?

  19. bitt says:

    I have tried a lot of crazy things but my favorite is a homemade sugar scrub for dry skin and skin bumps.

  20. Nick Abell says:

    I love DIY masks! My funniest story is from when I tried to make a cinnamon-oatmeal mask.. I ended up having an allergic reaction to the cinnamon and my face was bright red and irritated for hours.

  21. Amy says:

    witch hazel and tea tree oil.

  22. Cat says:

    I don’t know how crazy it really is, but I always crack up when I read about putting toothpaste on blemishes. For me, the weirdest thing I do or use is probably apple cider vinegar, both on my face and for my hair. But I don’t actually find that to be weird at all!

  23. Laurielyn says:

    Right now I’m trying out the Oil Cleansing Method – Castor oil, Grapeseed oil (or olive oil), and a tiny drop of tea tree oil. I’m also using the Baiden Mitten. So far, my skin feels better but I think with all the pregnancy hormones I still have blemishes pop up here and there. Maybe the Neem oil will clear everything up :)

  24. Debra J Webb says:

    I like cocoa butter, shea butter, eseential oils of flowers, plants and herbs and variaties of raw natural honeys for skincare, haircare, bath and body beauty products!
    Blessings!

  25. I like using baking soda as an at home microderm abrasion, but I can’t tell you the number of times that I’ve come out of the bathroom looking like I’d been baking- white everywhere! I really need to be more careful ;)

    Thanks for this great giveaway!
