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.

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.

Product Review: L’OCCITANE EN PROVENCE Lovelier Hands Kit

I love having my hand creams around to keep my hands moisturised, especially in this cold season. I came across this L’OCCITANE EN PROVENCE Lovelier Hands Kit on my way to Dubai. I like going through the in flight shopping magazine when flying. It keeps me busy and I am always sure to find a few things I like. I got this L’OCCITANE EN PROVENCE Lovelier Hands Kit and the Lip Smacker Coco Cola Tin Box Set. I reviewed the Lip Smacker Set last week, so catch up on that review post (link above) if you missed it.

Now back to this L’OCCITANE EN PROVENCE Lovelier Hands Kit.

Here are my thoughts on this hands kit:

PROS

  1. I love the colourful packaging. So very pretty.
  2. I like the fact that the hand creams come in a 30ml tube. So handy and compact for travel or to pop in your handbag.
  3. They all smell amazing. Like out of this world amazing. My favourite scent is the Shea hand cream.
  4. The hand creams are light textured, non greasy and they moisturise my hands perfectly. My hands also stay moisturise longer with these hand creams than with others.
  5. They absorb quickly as well so no stains anywhere.
