Reviews I experienced the
Angela, 23 years old: One day a friend brought me to the house of a nondescript-looking butylek, I do not remember which company, and insisted that I greased them daily acne( I've got a problem).Of course, I can not completely get rid of them until now - it's not so easy to cope with hormonal imbalance. But the fact that avocado oil heals them just before our eyes, I can say for sure. I take it in a regular pharmacy. It costs about 100 rubles. The manufacturer, in my opinion, LLC Botanica.
Galina, 19 years old: I treat them not only the skin but also the hair. I like. I have acne, thank God, but the skin is too tender and prone to peeling, especially in summer. However, I use only occasionally. But even after 2-3 times of application the peeling disappears.
Renata, 26 years old: Recently bought oil from Vital. The difference after applying until large did not feel( I have problems with the skin, doctors say that eczema, although other people on her face it is rare).I read on some site that avocado oil can help. But so far, to no avail.
Dina, 23 years old: I for their oil from Prirodatela gave 450 rubles. Manufacturer - Mexico. Dry skin just tortured, so this means my salvation. It is applied easily, there is no oily film. The color of the oil is greenish. The only thing - do not like his smell too much. He really original, on the fan.
Olga, 29 years old: This advertisement is bored. I tried to somehow use avocado oil for the face, tempted by the reviews. The month has been properly smeared for the night. The effect is zero. Maybe, of course, it was a fake. But personally, I was disappointed. I use creams Guerlain. Expensive, but effective.
Lera, 21 years old: colleagues shared Spivak remedy in light brown cardboard box. But it is for some reason transparent and absolutely colorless. Maybe refined? Girls who used, respond. The effect of it is?
Olesya, 31 years: Aspera use oil to remove makeup. Regularly with him do and mask. Most often in its pure form( this is how it turns out faster).I put on my face a cotton disc. When it dries, I moisten the skin again. With the face of problems is now less - does not flake and in the winter is not so worn.
