Long lashes and eyebrows and so much more

Hey, it’s me, Michelle!
Today I’ll be talking about the Castor Oil from CSCS. This oil came highly recommended by a friend of mine. She said it worked for her so I’m hoping for great results.
The product came in a small box about the size of a small shoe box. The bottle was just lying down on its side with no protective wrapping or anything. It came with a dropper top and has a tamper proof seal. A small clear plastic contained the two mascara wands. The bottle is made of amber colored glass which I prefer.
How CSCS Castor Oil Looks and Feels
Despite the thickness it flows easily and absorbs on the skin quickly as well.
When I opened the bottle I was greeted with a very thick oil that does not have much of the castor oil smell I’ve gotten used to. It’s smell is practically odorless in my opinion. The oil’s color is very pale yellow. Despite the thickness it flows easily and absorbs on the skin quickly as well. Since the oil is very thick, I suggest you be careful with putting it on the mascara wand that it came with. Use the dropper to place a small amount of oil on the wand. That small amount of oil can go a long way when used to coat eyelashes or eyebrows so it’s really great value for your money.
I go running almost every day with Marc. It’s part of our fitness routine. After running I feel like my feet could really use some pampering so I used this oil to massage my tired feet. The oil glided easily on my skin and gave me instant relief. I also used it to massage my legs. I noticed that after using the oil for a few days my legs looked great every time I wear a skirt or some shorts. The leg massage not only relieved my tired muscles but it looked like it moisturized my skin too. This oil is doing a lot of good things for my body and I’m loving it.

The CSCS Castor oil came with 2 mascara wands. I tried using it on my eyelashes but the oil kept sliding down to my eyes. What’s up with that? I asked my friend if this was normal and she said that I should use lessen the amount of oil on the wand. I reduced the amount to like a teeny-tiny drop and that seemed to do the trick. The oil no longer slides down my eyes and the surrounding area.
The oil comes in a 2 fl. Oz. bottle. Since you only need a few drops for your eyelashes and for moisturizing your skin, you can use the oil for many other things. You can use it to mix with your favorite shampoo to give you that glorious, long and silky hair. You can also mix it with other essential oils to use in different massage or aroma therapy sessions. I like to mix it with some coconut oil to apply as a deep conditioning mask on my hair once a week. It makes hair feel silky soft and smooth. I have long straight hair and I like to wear it loose. If I want to keep it from looking dull and lifeless, I use this mix of castor oil and coconut oil to give it shine and body.

Final Thoughts on CSCS Castor Oil
Overall, this oil is not bad. I liked the way it feels on my skin and how it moisturized my legs. I feel like it is an effective way to nourish skin and hair. Use it on your eyelashes and eyebrows to make it grow stronger. The only thing I wish was that the product’s price point be a bit lesser. Other than that, everything is great.
Update: Since I found this product quite the splurge, I am trying to find ways to get it for a lower price. I found out that the product is cheaper on their website than on Amazon. I do not know why this is the case, but you get to save $5 if you buy from the CSCS brand website. They are also offering 20% off any order if you join their Beauty Club by subscribing to newsletters. Free shipping is also available for all orders in the USA. There are many perks to buying from brand websites. Always check and compare, especially if you aren’t buying anything else but the oil, or if you are buying different products from the same brand.
