How are you doing? I hope you are all fine.
Today’s post, I don’t think I should call this a product review, its more of sharing my experience. Since my experience with Dove soap, I searched for a remedy to the crazy pimples I had on my forehead and chin. For a while, I stayed away from lotions and every other thing. I only bathed and left my skin bare.
Sweet Almond oil was introduced to me by my sister, she uses it as a body lotion and she told me it helped her clear her irritations as she has sensitive skin like me and it also helped with her stretch marks. She suggested sweet almond oil to me, saying that it would help me with my pimples. Now, leaving my skin bare and not applying anything on my skin had begun to take an adverse toll on my skin because my soap is quite drying. My skin began to dry out, itch, and crinkle a bit. To remedy that, I jumped on the wagon and started my sweet almond oil journey.
This particular sweet almond oil is made by Q7 Paris. Initially, I didn’t take note of the brand at all, I just wanted the oil. It contains only sweet almond oil. It smells rather plain with a little nutty smell.
Price: 1800 naira from my local beauty supply store. Price may vary depending on your location. I also noticed it comes with a scratch panel on the side that was to confirm the authenticity of the product.
I started using this with little to no expectation. Natural skin care products are said to be the best but I did not expect an immediate effect but lo! and behold! I noticed a difference on my skin from the next day.
Now, I followed my sister’s instruction and I applied the Sweet almond oil on my face and body the night I got it, right before bed and I noticed that by the next morning my hands felt a bit softer and my face wasn’t itching as much as the day before. In excitement, I repeated the same process in the morning against her advice and it did not end well.
By 1 week of constant use morning and evening, my skin had gotten softer and my face was smoother. All I had left was spots from the breakout which didn’t bother me as much. But my face was a grease ball! Therefore, I had to reduce my use. Now, I use the sweet almond oil once in 2 days or every other day and only at night. Pending when I decide to get a body lotion.
Sweet almond oil has numerous benefits to both the skin and the hair. A few benefits of sweet almond oil include smooth and flawless skin, moisturizing the skin, skin brightening, relieves eczema, rashes and all other forms of skin irritations and it aids hair growth by controlling hair loss and breakage.
- It is affordable.
- Non-sticky or oily but very moisturizing.
- Absorbs right into the skin after about a minute after application,
- Makes your skin feel soft, plump, smooth
- It is non comedogenic.
- Applying too much can make your skin very greasy and may clog your pores.
I recommend this oil to everyone especially those with sensitive skin and dry skin. Use sparingly in case of oily skin and apply mostly at night.
Sweet almond oil can also be mixed with lotion for more moisturization.
