Bajaj Almond Drops Non Sticky Hair oil With Vitamin E Review

Almond oil is one of the richest sources of vitamin E. Almond oil is an excellent moisturizer. Its great for your your hair. It nourishes and softens the skin. It also conditions the skin no matter how mature your skin is. Almond oil helps the skin stay healthy and youthful. Almond oil gets absorbed in the quickly, thus will not feel oily on skin after application like other vegetable oils and it can be easily used for oily and combination skin.

I always had oily skin and an oily scalp, so I was looking an oil which was non sticky. While coconut oil works great, I was looking for an alternative. My mom suggested Bajaj Almond Oil. I started using it and was pleasantly surprised, have been a loyal customer ever since. My whole family uses it and loves it.

Bajaj Almond drops comes in a glass bottle which I’m not sure is the smartest thing about it, since it is an oil – it will get slippery then why glass bottle?? I’ve broken 2 bottles till now. So anyhow, it has a distinct but pleasant odour to it and you can use it within 3 years. It also comes is various sizes of 300ml, 200ml, 100ml, 75ml, 50ml, 20ml and 3ml sachet. The oil is beer- coloured, dark pale yellow.

MRP of 200 ml – Rs. 67 /-

What it says?

It fulfills the dual benefit of do-good due to the almond nourishment and look-good due to being a Non-Sticky hair oil. Thus gives you the ease of styling. Being a light, non-sticky hair oil, it provides the traditional do-good benefits of nourishment without having the biggest negative attached to a hair oil–stickiness. With real Almond extracts, Bajaj Almond Drops has 300% more Vitamin – E than coconut oil which helps nourish the hair roots and makes them strong and healthy.

Key Ingredient s : Mineral Oil, Vegetable oil, perfume, sweet almond oil, vitamin E

How to use it ?
For hair -

  • Apply almond oil 2-4 hours before your shampoo your hair, and hair will be shinier and smoother after washing. Almond oil not only promotes hair growth but also nourishes hair to a high extent.
  • It controls hair fall and makes hair stronger.

For face -

  • If massaged on face for 10-15 minutes in circular motion, it will improve blood circulation and most certainly will give you a clearer complexion. Tried it and tested by moi.
  • Almond oil when applied on face helps get rid of dark circles.
  • It is useful for delaying ageing process. Apply on delicate areas like under eyes and side of your eyes, it will help prevent wrinkles crow’s feet.
  • It can be used for skin rashes, skin irritation and inflammation and chapped lips.
  • Apply it on your eyebrows along with castor oil and olive oil, it will help you grow thicker eyebrows. (or so they say)
  • In short use it as a night cream, its nourisher + moisturizer + corrector in one.

For body –

  • Almond oil is especially helpful in the winter, when skin becomes dry and rough.
  • Apply almond oil on face, neck and hands every night before you go to sleep, you are 100 % sure to wake up with a glowing face and body. Don’t fret about being oily all night, almond oil gets absorbed into the skin within 30 minutes.
  • At the end of the day, rub heated almond oil on your hands and feet, including the sole, to relax and rejuvenate them. This will help moisturize the tough skin, and give you softer, smoother skin.

Pros –

  • Its light, non sticky, gets absorbed in the skin fast (but not if you use ridiculous quantities,3-4 drops are enough)
  • Smells great
  • A good alternative to regular coconut oil
  • Priced well, comes in a lot of sizes
  • It advertises for hair nourishment, but I find it does less to hair than face, it works grrrrrreat for my face and body

Cons –

  • Odour is strong, if you’re one of those who don’t like strong odours plus it smells nothing like ‘almonds’
  • Glass bottle prone to breakage (oil + glass = :pig: :pig: )

My Rating –
:inlove: :inlove: :inlove: :inlove: (4\5) (Took away 1 point for the cynic in me!)

I have been buying it for a couple of years and will continue until I find other alternatives, any suggestions?
They should really advertise it to be used on face and body plus hair (right now Lara Dutta advertises for shiny shiny hair). It will have many more buyers then.

Will I buy it again?

:yes: Nice review. Even i feel it has a strong smell & never knew it could be used for face & body. I feel its very sticky & shiny to be used elsewhere.
Roghan Badam oil – Hamdard is more like almond oil with the almond odour n its really light & non sticky :-)) but its more pricey :-((

Smita T October 31, 2010 at 5:54 pm

arre no its not sticky on the body at all.. it gets absorbed real fast,
i want to try roghan badam oil, i will soon

Pranali October 31, 2010 at 4:39 pm

Rajeshwari October 31, 2010 at 6:12 pm

Hi Smita
Just putting in my two bits….This is ‘Almond drops’ HAIR oil not Almond oil. You can say this is baby oil/mineral oil with some almond oil plus vit. E. While roghan Badam Shirin is actually the Almond oil. Though I have used Almond Drops and it is good and I love its smell it is not the same thing. But of course we can massage with Baby oil and put it on face and body.

Smita T October 31, 2010 at 6:20 pm

But its ingredients say Sweet almond oil… that almond oil na

Reply

Smita T October 31, 2010 at 6:24 pm

If you mean its not only almond oil, then yeah i agree, it has others too.. but i believe it is considered almond oil.

Rajeshwari October 31, 2010 at 6:43 pm

Hi Smita
After hitting the submit button on my comment I was wondering if I sounded ‘hoity -toity’ but your reply is so innocent…any how what all I meant is I’d use this as baby oil not as almond oil (because you can put a few drops of almond oil in a glass of milk and drink it but I wouldn’t do the same with Bajaj hair oil LOL :-D :-D ….)

Reply

Smita T October 31, 2010 at 7:25 pm

No not at all Rajeshwari… if theres something you know that someone else might not know, its always a good thing to add on it, like i didn’t know that you are not supposed to drink Bajaj oil (not that i would have done it :P), your message did make me realise that Bajaj Almond Drops is not PURE almond oil, and since everyone is recommending Rogam badam, i will definitely try it

Ya Rajeshwari ur right..me too used both bajaj almond oil and Roghan badam shirin..Roghan is definitely the best and purest form of almond oil that is edible also.But for hair,I guess Bajaj almond oil is wonderful :-) :-)

Reply

Rati October 31, 2010 at 7:50 pm

You know the only Oil I have been using for years and years is the olive oil..Rest some oils give me headaches and some hairfall. :P

But I use badaam rogan for my eyes in winters. It kind of calms me down. :)

Rajeshwari October 31, 2010 at 7:57 pm

Hi
I use oil before shampoo. I mix sesame oil, olive oil and a few drops jojoba, leave it either overnight or if I’ve been lazy an hour or two before shampoo. I also beat a couple eggs with sesame and olive oil and leave it on hair for about an and then shampoo.. :-( but am not very regular :-((

Hey Smita, I used to use this when i was in school and I had long hair reaching just beyond hips… Then I cut is short, God knows why!!!!

Hi Smita T,
Nice review. I have used Bajaj Almond drops in the past for my hair. It was quite thick and sticky but it did keep my hair smooth and shiny and I didn’t end up with pimples on my forehead. But I kind of stopped using Hmm. I don’t know why… may be it was too think and was hard to apply… :P

But reading all your comments on Rogham I am so interested, unfortunately, I don’t think I can get it from where I come from… I can’t even lay my hands upon half the good Indian Products you guys discuss here :(

Deepa November 1, 2010 at 12:44 pm

What you can do is try using–Mahabringraj oil+coconut oil+ almond oil & heat them (Very little). Massage ur scalp with them & keep them overnite.
Wash it with the nice shampoo nxt day!

This oil contains quite a lot of mineral oil..which makes it non sticky…and less of almond oil…Im not so sure about it being good for the hair…
