Eden Organic Care Avocado Oil* £14.99
As usual I will start with packaging. Natural products have a reputation of being very simple in the packaging stakes. I'm not sure why but the fact that this is 100% avocado oil made me think it would look like something on the shelves in a health food shop. The box isn't much to look at but, when opened, I was pleasantly surprised.
The bottle is gorgeous. It is plastic but has two layers meaning its like a silver tube inside a clear bottle. It feels really sturdy and is much nicer than any oil packaging I have seen before. I am also pleased to see this oil with a pump. Oils I have had previously have pouring of droplet tops and I don't find these as easy or mess free to use.
On first impressions I was unsure what to make of this oil. It is a dark green colour and has a grassy smell. Although not unpleasant, I am not used to putting such natural smelling products on my face. Any uncertainties I had about this product were soon gone when I woke up and felt my beautifully smooth skin!
I used two pumps of the oil, one for my face and one for my neck, and rubbed this into my skin in upward strokes. I also used this in my elbows and knees and other areas of dryness. I slept in the oil but it absorbed well on my skin and I could have easily applied makeup on top. After one use of this product my skin was noticeably soft and smooth however after a few days I found my skin felt really even and my makeup was applying beautifully.
I am not a fan of hair oils due to my really fine hair bit I did use this one because, unlike others, you apply to dry hair then wash it off. I found that the ends of my hair felt much more hydrated after using this and my split ends were less viable.
I am really glad I gave this product a chance because, after my early uncertainty, I love this product and am happy to have it in my skincare routine.
