Review of Unlisted Brand NOW Sweet 100% Pure Almond Oil by mango700
My cheeks are really dry, due to hormonal imbalance---while my forehead and chin are oily. So frustrating I can't even explain it. Every kind of moisturizer breaks me out. Only neutrogena night cream from their ageless essentials line seems to do ok. Overtime I'll still get a pimple or two, but I can live with it. Even though this is a great moisturizer, it's not enough. My cheeks are extremely dry, itchy and feel like sand paper. I'm scared to death of aging prematurely and needed something asap.
Coconut oil and other oils made me break out pretty bad, so I gave up on oils thinking they were too heavy and pore blocking...until Sweet almond oil. Read all the reviews and articles online and tried it. I am so shocked at how well my skin absorbed it and it didn't break me out----if anything it helped dry up the zits I already had. AMAZING STUFF and to me there's no smell. Give it a try! I now put a few drops in my facial moisturizer as well and my skin looks so revived & irritation is gone. Next I'm going to use it in my hair. They say it promotes hair growth and helps decrease split ends.
This is my staple. It's inexpensive and I'll never be without it. I was skeptical about the NOW brand, but it's very good. You get a lot for your money and it's one of the least expensive brands of sweet almond oil on the market. I buy the 16oz bottle for $6.99-- from swanson vitamins great buy.
