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: Lip Smacker Coca Cola Tin Box Set

I love my lip balms, especially the winter months. I usually find myself applying and reapplying lip balms, because my lips tend to get really dry this time of the year.

I came across this Lip Smacker Coca Cola Tin Box Set of Lip Balms on my Emirates flight to Dubai last December, and it caught my attention immediately. I knew I had to try it. I liked what I saw so much, I even got an extra set for a family member.

None. I can’t fault this lip balm set. I just need to hide the lip balms from my daughter. She thinks they are so yummy.
