Khadi Sweet Almond Oil Review

Hello Beauties!

In our day-to-day life, all of us might have used almond oil or some other essential oil at one point of time for sure. The essential oil which forms a major part of my beauty and health regime is almond oil. I always have a bottle or two in stock for many purposes.

Khadi Sweet Almond Oil Review

First and foremost, I use this in combination with coconut oil (behaves as a carrier oil as almond oil itself is very concentrated and of a thick consistency). The second way I put this to use is that I mix it in my regular body lotion to give my skin the much-required nourishment as I have super dry arms and legs. Sometimes, when I have to do a quick facial, I just exfoliate my skin, massage it with some almond oil and water, apply face pack (clay based as I have oily skin) and then dab some moisturizer if required. This procedure has never failed me but make sure not to exceed the required quantity of almond oil as it can make your skin oily.

The oil which I am using currently is one of my favorite beauty products and I will be reviewing the same here. I will review “Khadi Sweet Almond Oil.”

Let’s start with the description of the product. Please ignore all grammatical and language mistakes as this is just copied from what is written on the bottle of oil:

Product Description:

2 years.

My Take on Khadi Sweet Almond Oil:

I have already mentioned about the ways in which I use this oil. Mainly, I use it for hair and body. I have really experienced some changes in the texture of my hair and colour since the time I have started using this oil. I have nearly 2-4 hair strands that fall each day and that’s it. Even when I shampoo, I do not lose hair.  Earlier I used to lose much hair while massaging as well as after shampooing. Now, that’s a part of history. I already had soft and silky hair, but now, after using this, I feel that they are growing healthy and quickly too. It has made my skin soft too. I quite often massage my body with this oil for almost 10-15 minutes and then use a paste of gram flour and curd as a bath scrub. This removes excess oil and makes my skin smooth and soft like silk. I am totally in love with this. This oil is definitely not sweet.  Once I accidentally touched my tongue with my hand while massaging with this oil and yuck! It was bitter like hell. I do not understand how people would take this oil orally.  This oil is light yellow in color.

Sweet Almond Oil

Pros of Khadi Sweet Almond Oil:

  • Excellent product for various massages.
  • Makes hair healthy, shiny and strong.
  • Inexpensive as compared to other brands.
  • Never broke me out after facial massage even though I have oily skin.

Cons of Khadi Sweet Almond Oil:

  • It is bitter in taste and the packaging is boring.

Finally, I would recommend this to all who want awesome hair and skin. It would be a boon for dry-skinned people who want to make their skin healthy and nourished.

Will I Repurchase Khadi Sweet Almond Oil?

Yes, definitely for the whole of my life.

Khadi Sweet Almond Oil Review Overall rating: 2 out of 5 based on 1 reviews.

Hate it!

2 5 1
Got this almond oil because of the trusted Khadi brand name and because of how inexpensive it was for a "100% pure sweet almond oil". While I had resigned myself to using the unimaginatively packaged bottle, I nevertheless expected it to be effective in its content. I was sadly disappointed to note that not only was the fragrance not pleasant, I didn't observe any difference in my hair or skin (tried it on my face and under-eye area). Reverting back to my trusted Roghan Badam Shirin for my almond oil needs

I use the Dabur badam tail… But this 1 is 160 INR for 100ml nd Dabur is 145INR for 50ml only, I wonder why there is such a huge price difference :-/


TA May 14, 2012 at 1:26 pm

Feel like trying it out…esp for hair and as make up remover! But which wud be better – almond or olive for these purposes?


Ashu May 14, 2012 at 2:10 pm

I use the FabIndia almond oil. Guess should try Khadi one next 🙂
FabIndia almond oil is non-edible… Khadi one seems edible but if it tastes bitter, I wont even try it… Is rogan badam one sweet to taste?


Buds February 22, 2013 at 12:09 pm
