Product Review: Camaru Naturals Camellia Oil

Saturday, July 28, 2012

     I love this bed weather we have now. But I hate that I cannot enjoy it because we're on a graveyard shift! My son is still wide-awake enjoying his new coloring book. He just ate his dinner an hour ago. Sounds weird? Yes, it is weird for a toddler sleeping six or seven o'clock in the morning and I've mentioned his erratic sleeping pattern here in my blog the nth time. As much as I wanted to sleep, I need to stay alive and kickin' because I still have 3 hours to spend on mommy duties before going to dreamland. So to keep my mind active, I need to read something or write a blog post :D 

     First of all I want to congratulate myself for updating this blog everyday. I want to make this a habit, publishing one review or haul post a day. Next, I'm excited to share on my next post another batch of winnings from giveaways that I've joined. And finally, after three weeks of using this so called miracle oil I'm about to rave my skin's latest best friend :D

     Using natural oils as moisturizer is not new to me. I've tried tea tree oil, emu oil, olive oil and sunflower oil before and I like the effects on my skin. If I'm writing my blog three years ago, prolly there's a written review here but the only review that I made was Human Heart Nature's Sunflower Beauty Oil. I love my GNC moisturizer. The Mosbeau All-in-one face cream somehow gave moisture and lightened some pimple marks on my face but I'm still on the hunt for something organic. I'm glad that Camaru Naturals Camellia Oil was included on the Everyday Essential Loot that I won from The Beauty Junkee. Does this mean the hunt is over? Well, read more to find out.

place bought: free (Camaru Naturals Facebook Page)

ingredients: Pure Camellia Oil (cosmetic grade)

What I like:
  • It's organic!
  • No breakouts, allergic reactions or whatsoever.
  • Unscented- a plus for me since some oil have this weird and funky smell.
  • Does the job in moisturizing the skin.
  • Lessened fine lines around my eyes.
  • My hair felt soft and smooth with a hint of shine considering that I have color-treated hair.
  • A little goes a long way.
  • After three weeks, I noticed that my pimple marks lightened a bit. 
  • Not sticky nor greasy and absorbs very quickly.
  • If I'll do the math, the price is affordable because it can lasts more than a month and performs as an all-in-one treatment.
What I don't like:
  • None!
Will I repurchase? Yes! Definitely after finishing the whole bottle which I think will last a long way. 

     I give this a 4.755/5 rating! I love this product. It's truly a miracle oil :D I've tried different oils before and this one is at par the best in my honest opinion. I highly recommend this specially to those with dry and flaky skin. You can also use this as hair treatment to restore dry and damage hair. Always do a patch test before using or adding a new product on your skin care regimen. This way it'll be easier for you to determine the culprit if there's a negative reaction with your skin. Natural skin care products can cause allergic reactions too. I'm an organic junkie but still I get some negative reactions from certain organic products.

     Have you tried natural oils as moisturizer? Care to share your experience? Have a great day head and stay safe!

Good Times!~

Product Review: Human Heart Nature Sunflower Beauty Oil

Monday, September 26, 2011

     How's your day? I hope everyone's doing fine. I'm here to review another organic product that works great in different ways. As you can see on my previous post, I'm becoming addicted to organic products. I feel good using them because I know I'm also helping mother earth. 

      I discovered this product after giving birth two years ago but I ignored this because I'm using another product that been raved so many times in GT forums. I want to introduce to you, Human Heart Nature Sunflower Beauty Oil. Yes, you've seen it right another beauty oil that can be included in your list of wonder oils like the extra virgin olive oil, extra virgin coconut oil, emu oil, argan oil, etc. 

     Human Heart Nature is an organic brand that has been around serving Filipinos with different beauty and health products. They also have products for all ages. You can read anything about Human Heart Nature HERE.

Human Heart Nature Sunflower Beauty Oil
size: 1.7 fl.oz (50ml)

price: 120php ( Around $ 3.00 )

place bought: Sesou Nature Source, TriNoma Quezon City
resellers from multiply

instruction for use:
for eyes- dab a drop around the eyes every night to minimize dark circles and wrinkles.
for face- apply a small amount on the face to moisturize, it can also be use as a make-up remover by placing a tiny amount to face, massage and wipe off with tissue or cotton balls.
for dark spots- massage on elbows, knees and underarms to lighten and brighten the area.
for stretchmarks- massage around the area.
for hair- rub a small amount to both hands and apply to hair for that healthy shine.

ingredients: premium cosmetic grade Helianthus annus (Sunflower) oil

What I like:
  • The price! cheap- just 120 pesos for a 50ml bottle. 
  • A little amount goes a long way.
  • Travel friendly bottle.
  • Visible lightening after a month of daily use.
  • Multipurpose.
  • Expiry date is stamped on the bottle.
What I don't like:
  • The smell! it's like your regular cooking oil.
Will I repurchase?: YES!

     I give this a 4.75/5 rating. I'm on my second bottle now. Even though it smells like cooking oil, it really lightened my elbows and knees. I've been using this for more than 3 months now and it just work wonders. I recommend this to everyone who wants to try a natural beauty product and is comfortable of using oil in their face and body. If you have sensitive nose, I think you can skip this because the smell really lingers. But if you can tolerate it, this is a great product that is really effective and affordable. As for the lightening effect, I noticed it after a month of religiously using it every night. Remember, Patience is a virtue.

Good Times!~
