PRODUCT REVIEW
*Burns
It's actually soothing on the skin. I've never used it on burns because thankfully I've not been burnt.

*Oily skin care
As I said in earlier posts, I have oily skin and it has a cooling mattifying effect on skin.

*Makeup
Could double as a primer. Though best mixed with a little moisturiser because if used alone has the tendency to flake.
Can also be used to tame eyebrows and baby hair but never ever ever use it on lashes...stings like hell!

*Acne
I've also used it overnight whenever I have breakouts and by morning the inflammation is either reduced or cleared completely. I apply a thick layer of the product on cleansed skin and then sleep on my back! Word of caution though, avoid eye area. It tends to irritate my eyes.

*Blemishes
For blemishes and general skincare, I mix with a little lotion and apply to my skin everyday ( I apply alone before bedtime). I've noticed my skin got clearer and smoother to the point that some days I go without makeup. Just liner and lipgloss and I'm good to go! Really great for fading spots.

*Hands and feet
It's also great for softening hands and feet.
Softens corns. Just mix with a little olive oil,apply to corn for 5mins then slough off with foot scrub.
Also works well as a shaving gel and also as an aftershave. Love how it soothes my legs after shaving.

*For hair
I gotta say my hair uses about 60% of the 24oz bottle.
I use it as prepoo to moisturize very dry hair alone or mixed with conditioner.

I use it in deep conditioning mixed with mayonnaise and eggs and it's always go into any of my home made conditioners.

I use it on my wash and go's mixed with Shea butter and olive oils. Great for definining my coils and never dry out crunchy!

I use it to tame flyways and smooth my edges.

I use it on my twists,braids and fingercoils to moisturise and give hold.

I use it in my spritz with a mix of conditioner, olive oil and clean water.

I use it for a million other things I can't list right now but will pop up in my other posts.

VERDICT
An all rounder and my staple. I will only stop buying it when I can't find it anymore....which would be a shame.
