I’ve been hearing all about argan oil recently, as many of the skincare lines that I use on a day-to-day basis are launching products infused with this special substance. When offered the opportunity to test out both a hair and body oil containing argan, I obviously accepted. I had heard of the oil’s certain ability to nourish, moisturize and improve skin and hair’s elasticity, but now I can attest — this stuff is good.
“Featuring a higher concentration of pure Argan Oil compared to other available treatment oils, this luxe formula reduces blow drying time while acting as a natural UV and thermal protector. Suitable for all hair types and gentle enough to use every day, U Luxury Oil contains essential minerals that work to repair hair cuticles, adding weightless shine and offering incomparable frizz control. This Argan Oil-infused styling essential enhances hair color’s vibrancy, nourishing and revitalizing hair to improve its overall health.”
I couldn’t have said it better myself. My drying time was cut in half, the frizz was at a minimum (always an issue for me) and my flat iron glided over my hair leaving it silky smooth. I did this all this morning, and as I sit here hours later, my hair feels as shiny, soft and smooth as when I finished with it this morning… and I haven’t even brushed it! Also, my friends at work kept petting my hair all day saying it looked like a hair commercial — SCORE!
The second product I tried was for body- Mama Mio Omega Body Oil ($35)-
“A gorgeously fragrant blend of skin-quenching silky soft oils that leaves you with a soft healthy sheen. A magic mix of Argan, Safflower, Sweet Almond and Jojoba oils give you the Omega superfood it needs to keep smooth, firm and elastic skin. OMega Body Oil is quick to apply, keeping your skin nourished, firm, elastic and glowing!”
What I loved most about this above all was the scent — it was so refreshing and unique! I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone with oily skin, however, as it definitely is VERY moisturizing. It soaked into my legs really well, as they were particularly dry, but the application on my chest didn’t go on as dry or soak in as quickly, leaving me with that oily look for a little too long. Still, the product eventually soaked in, and I was left with super soft skin. No complaints here! Just be careful for those of you who are a bit less dry…
