Barbara Kountz  from  Baltimore, Maryland

Did you like the scent of this product?

I used the unscented version which was actually unscented. Not all products advertised as unscented have no scent.

Was it easily absorbed into your skin?

It was easily absorbed and was not greasy at all.

Was your skin less dry after 1 week?

My skin was less dry after a week and felt very smooth.

Was your skin less itchy and flaky after 1 week?

My skin was less itchy and flaky after the week. I did not need to use as much moisturizer.

What was your overall experience with this product?

My overall experience with the product was excellent. It absorbed quickly, was not greasy after application and made my skin feel very smooth.

Would you purchase this product for $20.00? Why or why not?

I would purchase this product for $20. It is made with natural ingredients (not chemicals), felt great on my skin and it should last quite awhile. I also like to support small businesses.

Would you recommend this product to other FOFs?

Yes, definitely!

5—Loved it!

Pam Pieroni  from  Croton-on-Hudson, New York

Did you like the scent of this product?

Yes, it was a lightly sweet scent, not overpowering.

Was it easily absorbed into your skin?

Yes! It absorbed quickly on to my damp skin right after showering.

Was your skin less dry after 1 week?

Absolutely, my skin felt smoother and more hydrated after a week, even after 2 days of using it.

Was your skin less itchy and flaky after 1 week?

Amazingly, my itchy skin did not itch anymore and the dry flakes are gone.

What was your overall experience with this product?

Overall, I enjoyed the product’s effect on my skin very much. It doesn’t feel greasy because it absorbs so quickly. I assume, though, that if I don’t use it consistently, my flaking and dryness will return, so it’s not a cure—just a remedy.

Would you purchase this product for $20.00? Why or why not?

I think $20 is a good price, because it seems that the oil will last for a long time. You don’t need to put too much on and only use it on your dry areas. For me, it was my lower legs and feet, lower arms, hands and elbow, and neck.

Would you recommend this product to other FOFs?

Yes, I would recommend it if you have flaky, dry skin and don’t have a problem with the light, sweet scent of almonds.

Please rate this product from 1-5.

I rate it a #4. Not sure if I’d use it all the time because there are other products out there that might be even better.

Pamela Worlton  from  Irving, Texas

Did you like the scent of this product?

The scent is okay but I expected more of an almond oil scent which is very pleasant.

Was it easily absorbed into your skin?

Yes—initially left an oily feeling which disappeared after a while

Was your skin less dry after 1 week?

Yes.

Was your skin less itchy and flaky after 1 week?

Yes.

What was your overall experience with this product?

I decided to give it the ultimate test and used it on my feet. I have super dry heels. I massaged the oil into my entire foot every night after showering, it did make my feet a bit oily but the effects lasted over 24 hours. My feet look like I just had a pedicure without the polish. I have two recommendations: 1) Don’t sell product in a glass container when it is supposed to be used in the shower—too dangerous; 2) If you use on your feet be very careful walking on tile or wood floors as you may slip and fall.

Would you purchase this product for $20.00? Why or why not?

Probably since a little bit goes a long way.

Would you recommend this product to other FOFs?

Yes.

Please rate this product from 1-5.

I would give it a rating of 3, improve the scent and put it in a non breakable container and I’d up that to 4 or 5.

Catherine O’Meara  from  Lake Bluff, Illinois

Did you like the scent of this product?

Yes, very much, but I would probably purchase one of the other scents for myself.

Was it easily absorbed into your skin?

It was. I thought it would sit on top of my skin and thus leave an oily film that would get into my clothing.

Was your skin less dry after 1 week?

Absolutely. I am a Chef and wash my hands a 100 times a day. This product really softened my hands and body and left a lovely sheen without being greasy.

Was your skin less itchy and flaky after 1 week?

Yes.

What was your overall experience with this product?

Light and lovely.

Would you purchase this product for $20.00? Why or why not?

Now that I have tried it, I would. Would not typically purchase an oil based product as they tend to be too greasy and sit on top of your skin.

Would you recommend this product to other FOFs?

Definitely.
