A very versatile product. I use it the most as a substitute for eye cream. It helps lessen the slight discoloration around my eyes and fine lines under my eyes virtually disappear! It's not greasy, has a light organic smell and lasts a long time. It's also great for taming flyaway hairs and as a brow wax.
However: I got a sunburn on my shoulder this summer, and tried to use the argan stick. NO. Ouch. Stick with aloe vera gel in the fridge.
I love this stick. It i amazing for dry skin and razor burn or bumps from shaving. I use this a lot and it works so well.
I bought the mini for $6 to push me over the free-shipping threshold at Sephora and I was pleased to find this makes an ideal undereye moisturizer. I know other reviewers have had problems with the menthol in it, but I haven't experienced any stinging at all and I have sensitive, rosacea-prone skin. On the contrary, my undereye area feels soft and smooth -- no puffiness or dryness at all since I started using it. Granted, at my age I have only the very beginning of fine lines around my eyes, but argan oil fits the bill given my needs. I also use it on lips and dry patches (which makes it a godsend living in a high-altitude desert climate).
This would be a great product if it did not contain menthol. As a previous reviewer said, why menthol? I cannot use it anywhere near my eyes and I have to be very careful with my eczema patches or this will irritate them further. I'm glad some people are able to use it, but please test before you buy if you have any skin sensitivities!
I bought the trial size version, and I really do like it so far. Like someone below commented, it does have menthol in it, so I wouldn't use it in extra sensitive places. But I love the smell it produces. It's great for split ends, lip balm, dry skin, etc. I just used some on a sunburn I got in and around my belly button because I forgot sunscreen there (d'oh!) and it feels good and soothing on the burn.
All in all, a great multi-tasking product!
Love it. I like the packaging. I love the little plastic cap that comes with it. I kept that so that it doesnt dry out. I got the little mini to try out and its great for dry spots. I also had a bug bite that was super itchy i put a dab of this on and no more.
I also get some scars on my face from picking at blemishes and this does a good job of keeping them moisturized so i dont continue to pick.
i think i may get the big one next time.
Thank goodness I bought the small size of this because it's unusable to me as a replacement for the liquid oil. Why? It has menthol in it.
I don't know how people are putting this near their eyes. I got a rude awakening this morning when I dabbed some of it in my lower eye area and it's still stinging.
I can't even imagine what this would do to the rosacea on my cheeks.
There is NO need for this product to have menthol. All of the other ingredients would do just fine without it.
I guess I'll keep it for my elbows but I can't even put this on my hands in case I touch my face and transfer some of it there. continued >>
I love this product. It is great for everything, just as the packaging claims. I use it most often as lip balm. I also mix it with my lip stains and lip sticks to tone down dramatic colors. Works like a charm.
I love my Argan Oil and I love this stick. I use it in a couple of different ways:
1) travel- when I don't want to carry by bottle;
2) eye treatment in the am and pm- it's a great way to appy Argan Oil to the eye area;
3) lip moisturizer.
If you love the regular liquid oil, you have to get this too!
This could possibly become a 5 for me in the future if I consider it as an actual moisturizer. However, I don't use it everyday so I have no idea how it would affect my face over time. Right now I have a large stick and a small one for my purse and they are fantastic. I've used them on my dry hands but mostly I use these on my face. It goes on a bit greasy but is absorbed quickly and leaves my skin soft and glowing. It's always very nice around the eyes - it's quite emollient without being so heavy that it gives me bags. I'd seriously recommend trying the small one because even if you don't like it on your face, you can use it on your feet, hands, etc. Great product.
