I love almond oil!

When my face broke out recently, I leaned on my bottle of almond oil and it was everything my lotions and potions aren't. I used it 2 to 3 times a day when it was really bad and after a few days it healed SO quickly. Since then I've been using it every morning and after I shower and the difference in my skin is massive.

This is the one I use. £1.49 from the arab shop :] image from google

It's sooo much softer! I oculdn't stop touching my cheeks today lol I've always loved almond oil but never got into the habit of using it daily for more than a week so I never got the full benefits. I've been looking up the pros of using it and there are so many...I copied and pasted this from a site called indian parenting.

    Good stuff eh?! I think i'm gonna try it for my hair as it constantly breaks and isn't half as full as it was when I was younger. I remember on the way back home from school once, I was on the bus and some horrible bitches in year 9 were talking fraff about my great big biff amongst themselves. One of them said 'omg look! shepherd's bush!' Looking back now, it was a pathetic attempt. Yes my hair was bushy, but shepherd's bush isn't a bush. I should have challenged her to a duel then smacked her one with my oyster card!

    Anyhoo, just wanted to share my love of almond oil, anyone else like it as much as me?

                                lol you make me laugh. Oyster card what's that? sounds like a weapon I could use. lol

                                Anyway, I've been doing the oil cleansing method first starting with grapeseed. Grapeseed tends to be a little too astringent drying me out so I switched to sweet almond. And notice a better difference. I use it mostly in my body scrubs and it always leaves my skin super silky.. Def a must have.
