At the ripe old age of 32 I have started to notice a few wrinkles creeping in (I would call them laughter lines but unfortunately they seem to be frown lines!) and after two children I have a number of rather impressive stretch marks. I am all for being proud of your stretch marks because they are a sign of what you went through for your child, but I would like them to be reduced…
Picture from internet, not my own.
I was offered some Moringa Oil to test from Wikaniko and have been using it for 2 weeks now.
I did a quick bit of research about Moringa Oil (I am the daughter of a scientist so I do not naively accept facts found online, so this information was from an article which quoted its sources from various scientific journals (see article here): Moringa Oil is known for its anti-aging properties and is found in many skin care products. It also hydrates and moisturises and leaves the skin brightened, it is antiseptic and anti inflammatory so helps prevent outbreaks. Moringa Oil helps treat dark spots of hyperpigmentation.
As a teenager I had an acne outbreak and the doctor prescribed something which seemed to be pure alcohol and sapped all the moisture from my skin, since then I have had super sensitive skin which turns red at the slightest thing (including water). Since using the Moringa Oil I have found my skin is a lot less sensitive and definitely brighter and less tired looking.
I don’t have massive wrinkles, but I certainly have the start of them and would be very pleased if I didn’t! Haha! After two weeks of using Moringa Oil every evening I can see a good difference, they haven’t vanished but they are certainly reduced.
I have a facial dark spot which has appeared over the last few years (as a skin cancer sufferer I, of course, freaked out and got it checked but I can assure you the dermatologist doubled checked it and it is just a mark), since using the oil there has been a good difference and I hope to continue using it and perhaps eliminate it altogether:
I have also been using the Moringa Oil on my stretch marks on my stomach (in preparation for a bikini in America this coming June!) again there has been a good reduction in the obvious marks, but I can’t expect miracles my son was 9lb8!
Finally, I tested the claim that the Moringa Oil was good for conditioning the hair. Apply before it is washed (leave on over night is best but I only applied it immediately before a shower) and then wash off with natural shampoo (SLS free shampoo is best, see my reviews of sls free shampoos here). I was surprised how beautifully soft and shiny my hair was afterwards, my hair has been bleached recently so is pretty dry atm. I assumed it would get greasy quickly since I has smothered it in oil but actually it lasted longer than normal between washes.
The Moringa Oil isn’t cheap at £16.95 for 100ml but you really don’t need much of it for each application so it lasts really well. If you would like to try it I have been given a 10% discount code to share with you all, use code MOR10 at checkout. Offer valid on this website only, until end of March 2017.
