I read that this oil will fade brown spots, but didn't know whether to believe it or not. I had some VERY stubborn ones on the sides of my face that I had tried just about everything to correct. But this stuff did it after applying it to them night and day for about a week or so. It works best on my face. I can't say it does a lot for dry skin elsewhere, however.
UPDATE ON BROWN SPOTS: I can't explain it, but same brown spots which disappeared at first have come back. So didn't want people having too much confidence in my review about their disappearance.
