Product Review: KTC Pure Almond Oil

I wrote about the many Hair Oils available some weeks ago, and the best Hair Oils for growth. Well I have been experimenting with a few new hair oils to discover the best hair oil for our hair (that is myself and my baby girl).

I have used quite a few already, but I was not 100% sold on any until I tried this KTC Pure Almond Oil.

Pure, undiluted Almond Oil is the best for my hair and my daughter’s hair. I have only good things to say about this amazing hair oil. It is so good that I have had to buy 2 more bottles immediately, just so I don’t run out.

Here is a brief product description –

  • ALMOND OIL AS COOKING OIL This oil was extracted from sweet almonds, it is quite clear, pale yellow, low viscosity and mild pure flavor, so it comes as high-quality edible oil used. It is suitable for fresh salads, fruit salads, sauces and sweet dishes, also for frying or for fondue. In Indian cuisine, it is considered a “staple”.

  • OR FOR PERSONAL HYGIENE It is also suitable for a natural, native and mild type of skin care. It is neutral in odor – without chemical additives. Because it is quickly absorbed into the skin like almond oil, used as body and massage oil.

PROS

  1. It is a great multi-tasking oil. Fabulous for moisturising he skin (I add it to my regular lotion), conditioning he hair (I use it in my spray bottle with some water), and cooking.
  2. It is pure, undiluted oil. No chemicals, no fragrance.
  3. It is so affordable at only £3.20 for a 200ml botle.
  4. It is readily affordable on eBay, Amazon, Superdrug and many other online stores and regular shops.
  5. It feels great on my skin. It absorbs quickly, leaving my skin feeling moisturised and looking smooth.
  6. It is so good for our hair. I have noticed a massive growth in our hair, especially my daughter’s, since we started using it.

CONS

None.

This product is THE TRUTH! I can’t see myself using any other kind of oil. I have used them all, Coconut Oil, Olive Oil; and this Almond Oil is the best oil by far. I love it. My natural hair has had a full transformation. I am still transitioning, but I can see my hair fully transitioned in about 3 months.

Beauty Muse: Selena Gomez

The stunning Selena Gomez is a Beauty Muse. This pretty young woman grew on TV before our very eyes, and has transformed into a stunning beauty muse. I remember watching her on TV – Barney and Friends. She was a cute little girl, and she still has her cute features. She hasn’t lost her baby face yet, she could pass for a teenager easily. I love that about her. Many of her peers are walking around looking 10 times older with all the “work” they have had done already, but Selena Gomez is a natural!

I am not a fan of Selena Gomez’s movies or songs. But I do admire her beauty. I read up some recent interviews she had, and got some of her beauty tips and tricks for your reading pleasure –

 

Worst Beauty Advice She Ever Received

I just can’t understand when—and no offense—people have to wear makeup all the time, and they’ll say, ‘Oh, you can sleep with a tinted moisturizer or a self tanner on your face and you can wake up.’ For me, I just think that’s not my vibe, plus I do breakout. I don’t know if it’s bad advice, I just think it’s kind of to each their own. For me, I can’t really sleep with things on my body or tinted things just because I get worried. It’s not my vibe.

 

I am exactly the same. I can’t sleep with makeup on, but I can apply a light moisturiser.

Her Skincare Routine

I like to have a good morning regimen. I use my Clarisonic in the shower with the Clarisonic Sonic Radiance Skin Renewing Peel Wash. I do that maybe four or five times a week, so my skin has a chance to breathe before all the madness starts. Dr. Dennis Gross Clinical Concentrate Radiance Booster on your cheekbones and around your eyes helps make you look alive. But what’s really great is First Aid Beauty’s Eye Duty Triple Remedy—if you get dark circles, it’s the shit. I’ll put it on, it feels all good and cold, go have a coffee, and that’s the bomb. The Biore Deep Cleansing Strips make me feel really accomplished when I do them, too—plus they work!

 

I like the sound of her skincare routine. It sounds really good. What do you think?

Product Review: Salvotore Ferragamo Signorina Eau de Parfum

You should all know by now that I am a recovering perfume addict. Well if you didn’t know, now you do. I love smelling nice so I make sure I never run out of perfumes.

This is my first Salvotore Ferragamo perfume. I have heard a lot about the brand and I have been dying to try some of the products but never had the opportunity until some weeks ago.

I came across this Salvotore Ferragamo Signorina Eau de Parfum while holidaying in Milan. Once I took a sniff, I knew I had to have it, so I was well impressed to receive a 50ml bottle as a surprise gift.

Here is the perfume product description –

‘Signorina’ eau de parfum is the perfect alliance of elegance and memorable. The bright fizzy notes of currant spiced by fresh pink pepper bring a joyful, cheeky character which complements the green vegetal notes. A generous dewy petal note made up of fresh jasmine, rosy peony and the chic femininity of rose offers a creative floral aspect. The airy and creamy texture of panna cotta blended together with soft musks and intriguing woody patchouli notes offer a racy Italian elegance and an unexpected addictiveness.

Top notes: pepper (rose/pink), blackcurrant buds (cassis)

Middle notes: jasmine, peony, rose

Base notes: patchouli, musk, pannacotta accord

I have used this perfume for some weeks now, here are my thoughts:

 

PROS

  1. The pretty bottle was the first thing to catch my eye. I love the pink bow at the top. The packaging is so beautiful, the bottle looks stunning on my dressing table.
  2. It has a light, airy fragrance that smells amazing.
  3. It is quite affordable. Prices start from £44 and go up to £83 for 30ml, 50ml and 100ml bottles, so there is a bottle for everyone.

CONS

  1. I wish it was more long-lasting. It did stay on for a few hours but I expected to stay on for the day or so.

Overall, I do recommend this Salvotore Ferragamo Signorina Eau de Parfum. It is a lovely perfume with a sweet fragrance, so it is definitely worth trying.
