I'm really disappointed in this product. I've been trying to use more natural products on my skin (especially face), but this one just didn't work for me. My skin has been clear for months until I used this product and then I started getting whiteheads! It did feel good on my skin and it soaked in well, but it made my makeup slide off a lot quicker than it normally would. Looks like I'll be going back to my Alba Jasmine & Vitamin E Moisturizer!
Love Sweet Almond Oil. About a year ago my skin was looking quite dull and just blah. I love using natural remedies and at first I tried Extra Virgin Olive Oil. It moisturized beautifully but after a few week it began to break me out. I loved how it made my skin glow tho so I wanted to look for another oil and that's when I stumbled upon Sweet Almond Oil. It doesn't break me out and it less greasy then the EVOO. It makes my skin glow!I have been using it for almost a year now and I will continue to use it !
I use this to take off eye make up, a facial moisteriser, cuticle, and cream, to condition my eyelashes and eyebrows and I use it as a treatment for my hair by leaving it in over night on dry hair and then next day washing out with shampoo which really helps soften and condition my hair. And all around great product with many purposes and cheap too.
Less moisturizing than jojoba. Almond oil did not stand out in any way and I have tried them all. I love carrier oils for their versatility, their usage is truly limitless. I tried almond to clean my makeup and it was drying. Used it with my shampoo and as moisturizer for the body and it was just ok. Did not give my hair volume as jojoba or sunflower oil. Did not feel as smooth on the skin as emu or Brazilian nut oil. While the price is a big draw, I don't think I will be missing this when gone. Good but nothing special.
Years ago I was using Sweet Almond Oil to moisturize my skin. I had clear, soft, gleaming skin...but I thought it was due to everything but the Sweet Almond Oil. I would just put a few drops on after applying BP lotion. A few years have passed and my skincare routine has changed dramatically from the days of Proactiv...most moisturizers cause annoying millia and breakouts. I have tried Jojoba oil...I am just not getting the results I want. It hasn't broken me out but when I use it I still get clogged pores, ( you know the little bumps you can feel on your skin when you're washing your face...clogged pores) however they dont become inflamed (unless I pick which I am wont to do) so...I am going back to using SAO. What have I got to lose? It certainly removes makeup better than jojoba oil, and since Ive read the more recent reviews about SAO here I do notice that a few years ago my dark circles were certainly alot lighter. I looked less tired. I will update in 4 weeks.
****some time later in 2011****
Newp. Hated it. It was not the SOA. Clogged my pores, relegated to bodycare duty, caused pimples on my chest. That is why I stopped using it, it's not for me.
i've been using almond oil for the past 3 months for my dark circles and it really works!!!!!my eyes look brighter and more awake!i'll definitely buy this baby again!
Amazing, holistic, and versatile beauty product.
I use this as a cleansing oil (I returned my Shu Uerma cleansing oil after not seeing a difference between the two).
I use this without water to rub all my makeup off before I sleep. It works excellent at removing waterproof and stubborn makeup. I use a cleanser with warm water after this.
After incorporating this into my daily regime, I noticed my combo skin more balanced than before. I don't experience any of the dry, tightness I usually experience after using a regular cleanser to wash my face. The usual dry spot on my face don't tug or feel tight when I use ths oil. My oily t-zone doesn't shine as much- ironically, it controls the oil on my face..though I wouldn't recommend using this as a moisturizer on breakouts.
I also use this as a facial/bodymoisturizer from time to time, not only as a cleansing oil. Its all natural (atleast the one from GNC is).
Sometimes I mix this in my shampoo/conditioner for extra treatment and shine. I've noticed positive differences.
This is such an affordable, natural product without any unnecessary chemicals, parabens, and additives. I didn't like it at first but love it after learning how to use it more properly. A huge bottle was only 9.99
I've been testing various carrier oils in my beauty regime for the past two years and this is the tenth different oil I have tried. Having been around the block with oils, so to speak, I know how to use them- a little goes a long way. I have found almond oil pleasant (like most oils) but not nearly moisturizing enough for my dehydrated dry skin. Didn't give me the glow I get with my other favorite oils.
Great body moisturiser for extra dry skin. Does not sink in as fast as jojoba oil, but moisturisation is deeper and I use a lot less. Best on my legs after shaving (followed by petroleum jelly) because my skin gets sore and sensitive and needs the extra protection. Leaves my skin really smooth. I wouldn't use this on my face, except maybe to remove makeup, and then I'd follow with a facial wash to remove oily residue. A bargain online and great for dry, sensitive skin.
Moisturizer addict here!! I am an avid user of Sweet Almond Oil.
I am somewhat crazy abt my feet,recently started taking care of my hand as well. I bought a bottle of Sweet almond oil in my grocery store after watching a Dr Oz show. The show was about former models and their beauty regime that kept them looking 10 years younger than actual age. Bevelry Johnson stated that she uses almond oil on her skin....so I was on it!!
My main reason for teh purchase was to correct the damages done to my hands, they looked like hands of a 45 yr old!!
I applied almond oil liberally and used a moisturizing glove nightly.I was pleasantly suprised that withing 3 days my hands where looking smooth and even toned.I also used some on my feet as well..amazing resul
I store the unused portion in the refridgerator.
