Last weekend I shared, on the Cruelty Free Malta facebook page, three Akamuti products that were on my wishlist. Since then I’ve been in a dilemma whether I should buy these products before Christmas or I wait a bit more till after Christmas. In the meantime I came up with lots of reason … eh-em … excuses … for why I should buy them now rather than after Christmas.
So this evening after work I gave up fighting myself and decided to go to Shanti Health & Organic Shop in Mosta to buy these 3 Akamuti products. However as expected they weren’t the only products I’ve bought … duh!
Here’s what I bought…
It was a good product, it kept my skin oil balanced. However, I like to change and see what other good cruelty-free products there are in the market.
So I thought of trying the Akamuti cream which is created especially for problem skins such as mine.
Quest Evening Primrose Capsules 1000mg @ €19.05
Evening primrose is known to be a good supplement to treat PMS, menstrual problems, eczema, psoriasis and acne. Some sources also claim that it helps curing cancer. However there is not enough proof to back up this claim.
As you might have guessed, I bought this supplement to help me in the fight against acne. Also, if the sources that I’ve read are right, it also helps in fading the acne scars.
My Natural Living book advises to take up to 1500mg per day when treating acne while some other articles suggest up to 3000mg. Therefore I will try to take two from these 1000mg capsules per day. Then decrease or increase depending on the results I get after 30 days.
