This came highly recommended by a colleague at work, and she actually swears by it, she uses on her face, body and hair. Since she keeps on raving about this product, I got myself a bottle, and actually felt guilty for not liking it.....
This oil smells exactly like cooking oil and the scent lingers on for over an hour, seriously I just can't stand smelling like cooking oil.....
I don't know about my readers, but I've never heard about camellia oil before this colleague started to rave about it, after doing some research, there's actually another well known name for this oil and is call Tsubaki (ring some bells?).
