i bought a 10ml argan oil just to try it out. I have combination skin so i was a little hesitant to use it as a moisturizer but argan oil didn't break me out!! how awesome is that! i bought another argan oil (different brand) and tried it out and it also didn't break me out. i've been using it for two weeks and my hands and feet feels softer (i have rough H&F).
I love this!! I read so many great stories on this stuff, so I had to pick it up! I bought it in a shop right here in the Netherlands. It says 100% argan oil. My skin can get very oily and acne prone, but this stuff doesn't break me out! It's super hydrating and it's definitely giving me better skin structure! Oh and I'm using the bottle for almost 1,5 year now and I'm not even half way through it!
This stuff is great!!!! Initially I got a little bottle off ebay for my hair, just as an add to the whole order. It is 100% organic argan oil. Now I use it on my face, and I've been through A LOT of bad experience with clogged pores and breakouts from oil.
Argan oil doesn't leave your skin "oily". I put it overnight on the whole face and wake up with great skin tone and without a butter pack on my face.
Argan oil actually DOES improve dark circles. Mine are caused by thin skin and are (were?) really bad, though every morning I actually see an improvement....damn, I stopped using concealer! And I've been using it since I was 15!
Argan oil is erasing my fine lines under eyes!!!! Initially I started using it on my face for this. I used to skip the sunblock a lot while surfing and got pretty bad lines for my age after a while, skin was super dry and it would just accentuate the lines when I smile. Well, argan oil WORKS for this. I'm not going back to a high-end moisturizer.
I will put it on my whole face overnight and under eyes in the morning, before sunblock and makeup.
Give it a try! Got mine from IQ natural.
Update: So I had to downgrade it from 5 to 4. Still great stuff but not as perfect as I had thought. Fabulous to use in mixtures for hair and skin. Best when paired with another oil.
Got mine from Garden Of Wisdom. Best stuff ever!! Love it. My skin drinks it in. Less oily than jojoba but the benefits are as good or better. Sinks in very quickly and leaves my skin looking healthy, dewy, plump, perfect. Well, as perfect as it can look with acne and hyper pigmentation spots.
For my hair, it's nice. I don't really use it for my hair as much as for my skin, but when I do, I mix it with what ever I was going to use anyways. Sometimes I'll use a drop and apply it to the very ends of my hair. Just the very, very, end bit. My hair is long and even though I don't heat style or otherwise torture my hair, my SO has a tendency to, umm...play with it and pull on it during certain activities. So I do have some damage that the oil helps to alleviate.
I got the 100% pure Argan oil at a vitamin store and I absolutely love it. It cost me about 16$ for 2oz bottle but you need so little that it really is a fair price. I read on here that its a good moisturizer for the facial skin so to be safe I just put it my dry spots rather than my entire face. The next day I noticed white head clogs in the areas applied so unfortunately it didn't work for me but that is simply because of the oleic acid in Argan oil (oleic acid is found also in the oil your skin produces naturally ) I immagine this would be a fabulous oil for someone with truely dry skin though! I use it around my eyes and the skin is so supple now. Also I like the oil all over my body and hair. I put a tiny drop in my hands and run it through damp hair. My hair is long and fine and its very easy to use too much of the oil but through trial and error I know the perfect amount thatvworks for me. Love to add this to body moisturizer too! This is just a wonderful oil that you can customize to your specific needs.
Argan oil is amazing I put some on after I put some CHI silk infusion on and some of you might think that it is oily but that just depends on your hair type. I get mine at Sally beauty supply for like ten bucks and I have had mine for about a year and it is not even half down yet so the investment is totally worth it.
This is great stuff for hair and hands & nails, I don't like it as a facial moisturiser. I also use a little on elbows and knees. My hair is definitely easier to control and feels a lot silkier since using this. Styling time is somewhat reduced too!
I have a history of my skin getting irritated with everything. It has been 2 days, and I love this as a moisturizerso far. My skin feels hydrated, not oily, and seems to be glowing. I've been using Emu oil for about a year, and I like this much more. Once I run out of my Nuema Argan hair oil, I will replace it with this pure form. I paid $24.99 at the vitamin shoppe for 4 oz, you can't beat that.
So far so good with this!! I have been using Garden of Wisdoms argan oil for about 2 weeks now with great results! I have really sensitive skin that right now is combo w an oily t zone. I was worried that this would break me out b/c I have tried jojoba and olive oils with horrible results. This so far has done the opposite. If I ever have a pimple it heals it really fast. It has left my skin looking so glowy and clear! I am amazed! For those out there skeptical of trying oils, try this one!! I will update if this starts breaking me out but so far this has been a god-send for my skin!! I also love how easily this absorbs into the skin whereas the other oils I tried just sat on top and felt like they were suffocating my skin! Hope this helps someone!
I was a total Morrocan Oil disciple but that stuff is super expensive and not easy to find where I live so I just buy a 100ml bottle of 100% pure Argan oil from Amazon for about £6 and add some Ylang Ylang oil for scent. Use it on my hair and my hair never looked so healthy, use it to take off make up, moisturise skin (although not near my super hormonal chin) and I really do consider it worth the hype.
