“Natural-Facelift” – How Prickly Pear Seed Oil Benefits My Skin

It is an undisputed fact, girls love to take care of their skin.

When our skin becomes dry, we use tons of paper masks. When a pimple appears, tea tree oil may help or acne treatment may be needed. When we find marks or scars on our face, cream and concealers are a must to cover it up.

When it comes to skin, simple is better

As an engineer, I know the first step is to identify the problem and the next step is to find the corresponding solution. In my profession, problems and solutions are easily identifiable. But skin problems are a complex issue. Usually, skin problems are a combination of many problems.  What if I have so many skin problems? When it comes to engineering, the best thing to do is keep it simple. Things are less likely to go wrong. I also use this philosophy in my daily skin care regiment. If the skin has the building blocks it needs, our skin can usually rebuild itself. I find that cactus seed oil is the perfect building material.

Prickly Pear Seed Oil was new to me before my last trip to Morocco. I already knew about the famous Moroccan Argan oil and rose water. After travelling throughout Morocco, I found a small shop that sold various oils. I found this precious beauty secret after seeing it in a normal looking glass bottle. The label just said Prickly Pear cactus seed oil. I’m always up for trying new things. So, I gave it a try. The first thing that came to mind after trying out this oil was ‘Natural-Facelift’. Now, I have never tried B-o-t-o-x. But I have heard about the benefits but also the downside; namely the paralyzing effects of this product. So, I thought I had found the perfect skin care solution.  

While I was looking at the bottle label for the Prickly Pear Seed Oil showings all the benefits e.g. regenerate skin, anti-aging, anti-wrinkle, heal scars, blablabla… my eyes widened. Wow it’s 3 times more expensive than Argan oil!  It’s rare natural resources, it takes 470 kilograms of cactus fruit to produce only 1 liter of seed oil. OK, so I went for it and gave it a try. I bought a 15 ml bottle of Prickly Pear Seed Oil and haven’t looked back ever sense. 



Prickly Pear Seed Oil helps skin renewal and encourages new cell production. I feel like my skin became smoother and softer after using it a few days. My skin was dry all the time in the Morocco desert and I found my skin retaining moisture afterwards. And the most miraculous part is my marks on my face eventually started to fade away! I love this seed oil!  It is not greasy and can be absorbed very quickly into the skin. It doesn’t matter what your skin type is. Anyone can use it. If you are concerned about aging or dry skin, it’s for you! It is a powerful anti-aging and anti-wrinkle solution. It’s also great for spot treatment for scars. 

  • Intensive anti-aging properties and helps eliminate wrinkles on the face
  • Works well at reducing dark circles around the eyes
  • Perfect moisturizer for dry skin
  • Reduces dark skin pigments and mark
  • Restores skin elasticity and firms skin

Personally, the price was worth it for its value. The quality of my skin has greatly improved. It is the most effective oil product I have ever used. I will talk about other oil products I have used, and will compare them for you in the next post. See you!
