I usually don't write product reviews but I'll gladly make an exception for sweet almond oil. Last year, my mum bought me a small bottle of this oil when my skin was very dehydrated due to a chemical peel gone wrong. It literally saved my skin: the horrible redness and flakiness went away in just a couple of days.I've been using SAO ever since. It's very cheap (2 euros a bottle at the local supermarket) and a little goes a very long way. Also, It does not break me out but it hydrates my skin beautifully. No need to buy expensive oils like argan or rosehip seed oil. (Although I did, off course, because I am a beauty addict/ shopaholic). Anyway, those oils weren't nearly as effective as my humble sweet almond oil.

I used cold pressed almond oil for OCM, hair and moisturizer. I mixed it with castor oil to help it spread, only do it 2x a week for a deep cleaning. Removed makeup very well. I like to follow it up with a gentle cleanser as I'm acne prone and wanted to make sure that all the dirty oil was gone. I tried using it as a facial moisturizer, found it sitting on my skin for a while before it absorbed completely. So I just used an organic moisturizer from Sukin. It works on my hair as a mask and post-wash to hydrate my hair and get rid of the frizz. The texture is less greasy than coconut oil and less thick than castor oil, so it works as post-wash "serum". My hair is very soft and shiny. As a body moisturizer, it's really good, absorbed quite quickly and not greasy.UPDATE 23/12/2015: do not use this as an eye makeup remover. It stung and made my eyes red. Quite hard not to get a little in the eyes when I used this to remove waterproof mascara. Coconut oil and baby oil are fine though

After reading all the great reviews on almond oil, I decided to suck it up and try it on my face as a moisturiser and I do not regret it! I have oily combo skin that can be acne prone, the sweet almond oil moisturises, nourishes and calms my skin really well.I also use after my shower as a body moisturiser while my skin is still damp and also as an eye and lip treatment at night.Another great use that works well on my full, wavy hair is using this as an oil treatment in shower, I wash my hair with a cleansing conditioner (using wen at the minute, its ok) and then spread a little oil onto my scalp, leave for 2 minutes and then use my regular conditioner to take the excess oil out - works very well on dry scalp, oh if you're going to try this and never have, expect a transition period if your scalp and hair are only used to sulphates :-)

I just love these stufff !!!!!!!!!!I use it on my hair when its freshly washed and towel dried (i actually use a shirt but shirt dried will be weird .-. ) I use it as a leave in conditioner, i used to use a silicone based serum cuz my hair gets frizzy and poofy (althought its fine and medium thick, it was so thick but it sheded like no tomorrow and i cut it short)Anyways, as i explained, that serum was a must. I went organic for hair products but i couldnt stop using it, i had no choice. Until i used sweet almond instead if it and it was SOOOO soft, no frizz no poofiness, worked better than that expensive silicone loaded shit.Its sooo light, even if i used a lot there was no grease (the serum made my hair a grease ball when i used more than two pumps (or even less!!! --" )I will for sure keep using it. Ill use it as a pre shampoo treatment as well and ill use it for my dark circles cuz i heard it helps getting rid of them. Also to nourish my body. Ill use it e very where :DAnd its hella cheap :o ill buy a big jar of it next time.UPDATE : This didnt really help with my dark cercles, maybe it was cuz an allergy i got near my eyes.Its still doing wonders for my hair tho and its a really good nighttime moisturizer for my oily acne prone skin. I use a liiitle amount, it doesnt make my face oilier and it doesnt break me out. Awesome :3

I love almond oil. It's so moisturising and good for my skin. I find it takes too long for it to sink in if I use it on its own, so I add it to my body moisturiser. It sinks in immediately then and makes my skin super soft. Update: After discovering that my favourite body lotion contains a nasty type of paraben, I now only use almond oil as a body moisturiser. I really like it because my skin feels so soft.I have noticed that my skin can feel a little greasy after application, so I now apply it when my skin is still moist after showering. The moisture makes a huge difference: the oil is easier to spread and it sinks in immediately. If I want to apply oil when my skin is dry, I just add a few drops of water to the oil I want to apply. Works a treat!

I bought this oil just to test it out in multiple ways since I've been curious about using natural oils for skin and hair care. The packaging is annoying because the bottle squirts out a fixed amount which is way too much. So I transferred some into a little glass medicine dropper. I used it all over my hair and before bed I just slightly rinsed it out, not washed, and slept like that. My hair looked smooth and bouncy and shiny in the morning after I blow dried it. I also use it as a makeup remover for eye makeup only, I like it better than coconut oil because it's way lighter and doesn't leave that greasy heavy oily feeling. However, I wanted to see if it would work on my mild acne prone skin so I dabbed a drop onto my temple where I had a minor breakout and then wiped off the residue. It made the skin there really soft and the tiny pimples there vanished but in a few days I got a big itchy red pimple there... Weirdest thing. I guess my skin just hates me. Oh well. Ill continue using it for other purposes though!

the best way to take care of your skin. i use it in my bath, with some essential oils, honey and milk. it's my Cleopatra bath! Also pure on the skin it does wonders for dry winter patches.

I love sweet almond oil! I have acne prone skin and using this in place of a moisturizer and other natural skincare (much of which I make myself), I have had excellent results with reducing acne breakouts. The key is just a few drops and again using with other natural skincare. I avoid soaps/silicones/dimethicones on my skin and this has helped my acne a lot!

I really, really wanted to like this for my face. I decided to try it after reading many raving reviews about how wonderful this stuff is in moisturizing the skin. For the first week, it was wonderful. My skin looked clear and radiant. Then hell broke lose. It clogged my pores like hair in the drain. I have pretty clear skin all my life, and suddenly my forehead was so rough and red with the comedones clogging my pores. Horrifying. My cheeks and chin were next to erupt, though thankfully it is not as bad as my forehead. It's been almost a month since I stopped using almond oil on my face, and I'm still getting painful pimples coming forth, and rough bumps surfacing from nowhere. It must be due to the oil, since I stopped applying any moisturizer at all, for fear that I will clog even more pores. So to those who want to try this, please please just try it for a couple of weeks on a small and not so obvious part your face. If it turns out bad, at least you won't have to deal with your entire face breaking out.On the upside,almond oil seems good for my hair. A few drops rubbed into the ends of my damp hair helps to reduce the frizziness the next day. I also use it very sparingly as an eye serum. My eyes tend to get puffy, especially the lids. A teeny weeny dab of this on both my top and bottom lids at night helps to reduce the puffiness in the morning.
