A great moisturizer for skin and hair / Отличное увлажнение для кожи и волос
Posted by SvitlanaOrganic on Feb 27, 2015
Before all, I got this oil to use it as a hair mask to nourish my hair and prevent split ends. This is a product of a pretty good quality, the only detail is that it is NOT a cold pressed oil. I was in a hurry making my order and my love to Now Foods brand plus hundreds of great reviews made me order this product without thinking too much of it. Anyhow, it’s doing its task pretty well – my hair is soft and moisturized. I alternate it with coconut oil for my hair, and comparing to that one it acts “softer”, it’s really more a moisturizer than a nourishment for me. You can also use it for your face and body – it stimulates collagen production, I’ve been using it as a 10 days course for my skin around eyes to prevent early wrinkles. It moisturizes my skin well - I use it occasionally on my body. In the end, the product is good, but I will give it four stars because of pressing method. Next time I will order a cold pressed oil from iHerb, these ones aren’t that popular here, but there are ones which look appealing. Just one recommendation – put it away from light and pay attention to the color of oil – the best ones have greenish shade because of xlorofill (greener – better), if it gets brownish it means there isn’t too much good stuff left. This product is in between – I hope still closer to the first option :) If my review was helpful for you - please press YES and check my profile. You will find there other useful reviews and my favorite products – I am a big fan of organic and natural products! / Масло авокадо заказала в первую очередь для применения в качестве маски для волос – питание длины и предупреждение сечения кончиков. Это довольно качественный продукт, единственный нюанс – это масло НЕ холодного отжима. Я делала заказ в спешке и любовь к бренду Now Foods и сотни восторженных отзывов сделали свое дело – положила в корзину, не задумываясь. В принципе, со своей задачей справляется «на отлично» - волосы мягкие и увлажненные. Для волос чередую с кокосовым маслом, в сравнении с ним масло авокадо действует на мои волосы мягче, легче вымывается, но и такого сильного питания, как от кокосового не получить – больше действительно увлажнение. Также можно использовать для кожи лица и тела – стимулирует выработку коллагена, я мажу курсом в 10 дней на область вокруг глаз для предупреждения морщинок. Увлажняет отлично – также иногда использую на разных участках тела. В общем, продукт довольно хорош – но сниму звезду из-за способа отжима. В следующий раз закажу масло другого бренда, на iHerb они не так популярны, но есть выглядящие достойно. Небольшая рекомендация – прячьте от света и смотрите на цвет масла – при холодном отжиме сохраняется больше хлорофилла и масло имеет зеленый оттенок (зеленее-лучше). Если у масла коричневый оттенок – там осталось очень мало полезных веществ. Данный продукт где-то посредине, но верю, что ближе к первому варианту :) Если мой отзыв был полезен для вас, пожалуйста, нажмите YES.

Amazing for dry skin!
Posted by EricaFaith on Apr 26, 2012
My husband has severely dry skin, especially on his back. I bought this on a whim for him one day, and he loved it. He said it's helped so much with his skin. This is always what he goes to now when he has terribly dry skin. We're definitely going to stay stocked up on this, especially during the winter.
Not the freshest smell...

...but it's the first time I use avocado oil. Maybe it always smells like this?! However, I've used it on my face (both simply in a thin layer, and with the oil-cleansing method, letting it sink deep into pores with hot wash clothes) which is covered with red acne marks, and it does not make me break out. Plus, I believe it has already helped to slightly reduce me marks (which is why I started using it in the first place).
Great for moisturizing

I have extra dry skin so using some kind of oil during colder months is a must for me. I really liked Avocado oil because it moisturized my skin so well. I would combine it with my moisturizer (first oil, cream on top) and the effect was wonderful - beautiful, soft skin. I used it on my face and body (where it did a much better job than the sweet almond oil). There's no particular fragrance, which I like. Loved the cap on the bottle. Recommended for dry skin.

Not the best avocado oil but i use it for cleansing my face and for my body so it's good enough! For my face i use cold pressed and onrefined oil!
Soften my skin!

This oil is quite good for using on face and whole body. My skin get softer and smoother. I recommend to apply this oil on damp skin (after shower) ,oil was absorbed to skin better than apply on dry skin.

I've tried using this product on my face for the first time. It didn't work as great as the Now Solutions rose hip seed oil & sweet almond oil which I'm currently using now. . Although it didn't work well as a carrier oil on my face, however, I'm using it for Oil Cleansing now instead of leaving them on my face. Cleanse the oil residue afterwards with a good cleanser. Works ok :))
Good, cost effective oil

Cost effective alternative for the more expensive avocado oils. A bit thinner maybe, but still rich.
Tasted it and cooked with it!!!

Makes your eggs taste different, its ok with carrots and not real good on cucumbers. I d rather just use it on my skin. :)

No scent. I use this to mix with my pure unrefined raw shea butter, makes a more oily shiney lotion than just a thick cream if I add this to it.
