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: 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.

Enjoy a handful of scents and softness in this exclusive travel retail collection of 6 Shea, Pivoine Flora and Rose Hand creams. Enriched with shea butter, these must have creams will moisturize hands any time of the day. The perfect gift or indulgent treat.

 

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.

CONS

None.

I can’t fault this L’OCCITANE EN PROVENCE Lovelier Hands Kit at all. This is my second time using  a L’OCCITANE hand cream kit and I will be buying again once am done with this set. It is definitely one of the best if not the best in the market, and I mean that. These sweet-smelling hand creams should be in everyone’s bags.
