Sweet Almond Oil
I bought this to add to my bath. It was on sale so I bought two bottles and did not know if I would like it.
It was a little greasy in the tub, but for dry skin after the bath, I just can't beat it. I quickly took it from the tub to the vanity and use it after every bath.
I had tried other oils on my skin but they would quickly sink in and I would be itching again from dry skin. This oil is heavier and stays on more while it sinks in and moistens. I can't live without it. It is my winter go to for dry skin.

I use this on my face. Skin is much smoother and wrinkles aren't as noticeable.

a little greasy
This doesn't absorb into the skin too well. I am using Retin A so I figured I needed this but it is kind of greasy, don't use too much, takes awhile to absorb but supposed to be great for around the eyes and dryness.

Love this Product!
I keep a bottle of this sweet almond oil in both of our bathrooms at all times. It's great for applying to my skin after showers, and also fabulous for taking off eye makeup. My dermatologist said my skin looks great! Highly recommended!

Young Skin For Guys Too!
My wife is the queen of facial products and it has paid off through the years. Her skin looks GREAT! So, I wanted to "get in the game" and try a product, I felt comfortable using, to slow down the army of wrinkles heading my way. "How about a "mud mask, honey"?, just didn't cut it for me! Then I read about the wonders of almond oil and gave this product a try. A few drops on my fingertips rubbed around my face and neck, after a shower and before bed, brought a noticeable difference in weeks, and my face is getting progressively younger looking. I've tried other brands but they seem oilier and most are more expensive. My wife has even included it in her daily beautifying routine. Give it a try!

Leaves skin soft and moisturized
I purchased this oil because I was looking for some light oil to use on my skin and scalp. So far, I am very happy with the product. The scent is not overpowering. I do feel like I need to massage the oil on the skin for a longer time for full absorption. Otherwise, it tends to feel a bit greasy. Great value for the price.

This Sweet Almond Oil from NOW Foods is Always Awesome in all ways. Amazing to use liberally on your face, hair, and all over your body. Everything they say and write about it in the product description is true. . . . and then some. I use it after shaving and after showering. I get compliments on my skin, which is rare for a man, and especially at my age. A lot of it is internal nutrition, but a lot is also methodically applying the right Natural Nutrient Oils, like this Light and Fabulous Almond Oil.
When I say I apply it liberally, I'm not kidding. After I rub it all over my face after shaving, I rub the remainder on my hair, shoulders, arms, and torso, then thoroughly into my hands. I rub more on my legs, and it rubs in completely. This Almond Oil is light and not sticky. It rubs in easily and smoothly. My skin soaks it up and loves it.
Living in Southern California, I'm out in the sun a lot every day in short sleeves and shorts, and my skin is never dry. Furthermore, I do not believe in using sun blocks or commercial tanning lotions. I use common sense instead. I want to get part of my daily dose of Vitamin D3 from the sun (and also from Swanson's 5,000 unit capsules, of which I take a couple every day), and using Natural Oils like this NOW Sweet Almond Oil keeps my skin soft, supple, and youthful.
It is so inexpensive from Swanson Health Products. . . . Give it a go.

AMAZING, AWESOME ALMOND OIL
It is so nice to have this wonderful natural Sweet Almond Oil that I can liberally apply ALL OVER my face and neck every morning after I shave (not just where I shaved). It is light, not sticky or gooey, rubs in / soaks in perfectly, and I don't have to worry about it getting on my collar or clothes, or making me look or feel all shiny or greasy. The excess on my palms and fingers COMPLETELY rubs into my shoulders, chest, arms, and hands. This Sweet Almond Oil fills the bill on every point. Also, it does not clog my pores; my complexion is better than ever. A little Almond Oil applied to my wet face before shaving gives me a very smooth shave with absolutely no irritation. All in all, using this NOW brand Sweet Almond Oil is quick and effective. Not a lot of men (especially my age) get compliments on their skin, but I do. Amazing & Awesome Almond Oil. I use other natural oils from NOW, also. I sort of change off as the mood strikes me. However, thus far, Sweet Almond Oil is batting cleanup and knocking it out of the park.

I use this oil sparingly for cooking, because we don't need gobs of oil when we cook. I use it lavishly to soften dry skin because it is absorbed easily and effective. So, I order the large size for one purpose
and the smaller size for cooking to be sure it stays fresh. You'll love it, too.

Love Sweet Almond Oil!
I love this almond oil. This sweet almond oil serves as an excellent moisturizer from head to toe. It soaks in quickly, has no odor and does not leave a sticky residue on the skin. It is also a great massage oil. The price is less than half of what you would pay in a health food store. I keep it in a dark closet and it stays fresh. I pour it into smaller squeeze bottles for everyday use. I am a huge olive oil fan (for skin and hair) I will replace the olive oil with almond oil in my skin and hair care regimen.

I use this oil on my face every night before going to bed to keep it moisturized. It can leave my face a little shiny, so if I do use it in the morning, I only put a little bit on.
The bottle tends to get greasy from drips. I cleaned out a contact solution bottle and put the almond oil in that instead: easy to drop the oil into my hand, but no drips down the side of the bottle!

I use it as a base for other essential oils and it combines wonderfully.

NOW Foods Sweet Almond Oil
I usually don't care for anything greasy on my face, but NOW Foods Sweet Almond Oil makes my skin feel so silky smooth after washing! It absorbs very quickly and is so soothing. I originally purchased it to use as a massage oil to mix with other essential oils. The instructions on the bottle, though, recommended applying it to the face so I've been doing that as well. I'm not a licensed massage therapist, but I do give my family "massages" just to help them relax. Sometimes they return the favor! NOW Foods Sweet Almond Oil helps us to do that with a carrier oil that is light and absorbs very quickly.

Not effective moisturizer
I tried this because it claimed to be a great face and body moisturizer. I was very disappointed with the results. After using the product my skin feels as dry and itchy as it would if I used no moisturizer at all.

love this product!
I decided to order this oil on a whim and love it! I recently noticed that I was becoming more sensitive to lotions and moisturizers, so the fact that there are no petroleum by products made a big difference. It leaves my skin soft without the greasy feeling I dislike with other oils! This will be my overall moisturizer from now on - I just ordered the 16 oz bottle!

I have not bought this product from Swanson yet, but it is on my list to buy this up coming week. I have, however, used it in the past. It's wonderful! I use it to shave with in the shower. It smells so good, and the scent lasts. The price here at Swanson is wonderful!
