Today I’m going to review Baby Biotique Bio Almond Oil. Now I know what you may think. Now I maybe 30 but I love using gentle products. Baby products like shampoos, vitamin e based creams and oils are very good and have no side effects in general. While I’ve kept some of the products for my niece (who lives in Switzerland with her mother), I had to try the almond oil.
About the Brand: Biotique has been around while we were growing upi: in fact some of their face packs and lip balms have been my favourites at one point in time.
Packaging: Sticking to their maiden colours of green and white, this looks like a through and through Biotique product. It’s got a cute sticker since it’s in association with Disney.
First Impression: The oil wasn’t sticky, to say the least.
Ingredients: The good part is that it’s not just almond oil, but a mix of neem oil, sesame oil and many more.
- I get home massages (I have an amma who comes over for a good old “hard” massage) once a week, especially after sitting in front of the laptop for days altogether. So the first time, I told my amma to use it and she was thoroughly impressed. It was easy to massage and absorb. It’s not sticky and your skin remains soft after use.
- I also use it on my arms and legs post shaving (insteading of using a lotion) and my skin feels super soft.
- If your lips are very dry, you can dab a bit of almond oil in your naabhi or navel.
Price: Rs 150 for 200 ml
Is it worth the price? Growing up in Delhi, I equate almond oil with Hamdard Roghan Badam Shirin. We have been brought up looking at that tiny bottle which is sweet almond oil and costs Rs 430 for 100 ml. While this is not sweet almond oil, it’s great for a massage, to keep your soft and supple.
Who should use it? Anybody who likes to use body oils, and is aware of the goodness of almond oil.
Have you tried it? Which oil do you use in drier months of the year? Tell us in the comments’ section.
