Having thyroid problems is one health concern that is not easy to deal with especially when it comes to your personal appearance. Some of my concerns are dry skin and hair and falling hair. I've tried several hair and body products in the market that promises good results but most of them failed. As I grow older (and wiser...), I try to look out for products that are natural, no harmful chemicals yet effective. I was at the Beauty section of Landmark, Makati when I saw this Moringa-O2 Herbal Hair, Scalp and Skin Oil Therapy in one of the shelves. I immediately picked it up and read the packaging (it's very helpful that all the necessary information are there). I noticed that it's by Ardent Naturals, the same company that created Malunggay Herbal Moisturizing Lotion, which I got from Sample Room, months ago. I asked the sales lady beside me (who kept on following me where ever I go), if the product was really good. She said that it's one of their best sellers, that's why there were only a few left on the shelves. Upon hearing her response, I decided to get one for myself, and for the price of P99.75 for a 30ml bottle, it's a steal for an all around product.
The product claims that it has many uses, so I've tried it on every skin problem that I have.
Hair and Scalp - I apply it on my hair and scalp and massage it for a few minutes, I cover it with a hair cap and I leave it for 30 minutes, then I shampoo my hair. I immediately noticed that my fingers glide as I shampoo my hair, no tangling unlike before and I never have to use conditioner. I used this on my hair twice a week, I noticed that in a matter of 2 weeks, there were less hair fall and less itchiness on my scalp and somehow, it improved the texture of my hair, less dryness.
Face and Body - My first time use? I already felt and saw the big difference in my face. After applying it at night before I went to bed, I noticed the next day that my pores are a bit smaller and less visible, no exaggeration! My skin felt tight and smooth. It is best to use this product on your face at night, for better absorption and will work its miracle while you're sleeping. I wouldn't advise using it in the morning, especially if you're going out in the sun, it can be quite sticky if you perspire a lot.
It is also a good body moisturizer, I apply it on my skin while it is still damp, after taking a bath. Because of its semi-thick consistency, it doesn't glide that easily when applied, so I end up using a lot just to cover the whole area of my body, but I'm fine with it because the result is smooth and better looking skin.
It is very effective for insect bites and rashes. For some reason, mosquitoes like me a lot, so I always have insect bites in some parts of my body. Just last week, I woke up having mosquito bites on my face, and it was really big and inflamed. I immediately applied the oil into my face, after a few hours, the inflammation had subsided. After religiously using it for a few days, there were no deep marks, my skin has improved and was saved from further aggravation. I even recommended it to my brother, who's suffering from skin rashes due to stress, I advised him to apply it on the affected area. The next day, I got a text from him asking where did I buy it, I guess it works for him, so he got himself a bottle at Watsons.
I like the scent of Moringa-O2 Herbal Hair, Scalp and Skin Oil Therapy, it reminds me of Green Tea perfume by Elizabeth Arden, although when I tried to apply it on my dry lips, I can almost taste the perfume, not a good idea!
My verdict? See my bottle? It's half-empty. I think I have to buy some more before supplies ran out! It's natural, inexpensive and effective, need I say more?
