For dry winter skin it's quite moisturizing, but for me sweet almond oil works even better.

I use this as a face and body moisturizer. Only a couple of drops needed every time so it lasts forever. Good price too. However, I tried to use it for my hair but it doesn't seem to make it any better. Olive oil/coconut oil works better.

Works well for moistening the skin; but does not absorb into the hair as well as jojoba oil.

It's a fairly banal oil. She does not feel apricot and I find that unfortunate.
