NOW Apricot Kernal Oil
Posted by Reviewer3115615 on Jun 12, 2008
I like this product very much. It is a great alternative to skin care products with a lot of chemical additives. While it may seem a bit oily when first putting on the skin (I use it on arms and legs), it soon absorbs. An added plus is that it also moistens my finger nails. Though they have typically been weak, they are now much more resilient and look much better!

I ONLY USE THIS OIL ON MY EYE AREA AND TO MY HAIR. IT IS VERY MOISTURING OIL. I WILL ORDER AGAIN.
Great for dry skin.

The skin on my feet had been so dry they were cracked and the cracks would not heal. I started putting apricot kernel oil on them daily and some time later (possily a month or so) I felt of my feet and the cracks had healed. I usually apply to dry skin daily.
Great expeller-pressed and hexane free apricot kernel oil.

It's one of the most versatile oils. Rich in unsaturated fatty acids and vitamins A and E, apricot kernel oil is famous for its superb moisturizing, emollient, nourishing, protective, soothing, healing, anti-inflammatory, regenerative, rejuvenating properties, as well as being a powerful antioxidant fighting free radicals and preventing premature aging. It absorbs quickly without leaving a greasy residue, deeply moisturizes, nourishes, softens, soothes the skin, improves its elasticity, making its soft, smooth, and supple, prevents dryness and dehydration, evens out the skin tone, improves the complexion, encourages cell renewal, calms itching, reduces irritation and inflammation, facilitates healing, helps fight eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, prevents and reduces stretch marks and scars, relieves pain caused by sunburn and peeling skin, heals sore and chapped lips, small wounds, cuts, burns, smoothes out fine lines and wrinkles, restores luster to dull and lifeless hair, acts as a natural sunscreen. Apricot kernel oil is an amazing base oil which can be blended with different essential oils. Since I started using this oil, I've noticed that my complexion has improved, my skin tone has evened out, my skin is much softer, smoother and has a healthy glow. Will definitely order it again.

Leaves skin (and hair) smooth and soft. Great on toast instead of butter.

good on salad, added it to some cooking, no flavor, GRAT for skin, soaks right up, not too good at mascara removal because it's really not greasy. I can rub it right into my hands & it disapears quickly w/little to no residue. I wouldn't recomend for massage because it absorbs so quickly.

FINALLY...., AN OIL FOR OILY SKIN

I use this as a base and add drops of all my favourite stimulating essences and can apply directly to my excessively oily face with no added oilyness. It just absorbs straight into my skin ... no shine. Gotta love that. Plus it moisturises and makes me look years younger.
