A few months back, I’ve decided to go organic and natural in our household products. It’s scary to know that most commercial products contain chemicals which are harmful to us in the long run. After making my own soaps, I have ditched commercial shampoos and even house cleaners. I am now trying to find natural skin care products, sans parabens and harsh chemicals.
Natural oils have been used many years ago in skin care, but because I have combination and sensitive skin, I was hesitant with oils.
One of the most sought oils today and already found in the cosmetics industry is the Moroccan Argan oil.
Argan Oil, dubbed as “LIQUID GOLD” by Europeans, is an all-natural organic oil that has amazing cosmetic properties. This rare oil is extracted from the nuts of the Argan Tree that can be found in Southwest Morocco. Argan Oil’s blend of Omega-6, Vitamin E, and other essential fatty acids makes it a potent moisturizer and antioxidant. When used regularly, Argan Oil restores the natural freshness and tightness of skin and prevents signs of premature ageing. It also nourishes scalp and hair.
You can only get the full cosmetic benefits of Moroccan Argan Oil when the extract is pure and fresh. The best way to identify quality virgin Argan Oil is through its natural nutty scent.
FRESH, RICH and PURE
I was intrigued for even Hollywood and local celebrities use this.
The owner of Oil of Argan was kind enough to send me samples of their 100% Pure Moroccan Argan oil.
The consistency is light and so it’s easily absorbed by the skin. I love the nutty scent! I don’t mind it at all. I still keep the box because after I use it I put it back there. Avoiding light makes the oil preserve it’s beneficial properties.
Here’s what I like:
The stubborn flaky areas in between my brows disappeared. Wow to this argan oil’s high Vit E content! I massage this every night on my face. I stopped my commercial moisturizers and switched to this. It is a very nice moisturizer because when you wake up, your face feels hydrated and glowing. Before I’m oily on the T-zone, but now, it just balances everything. I have this fine lines under my eyes, and this oil helps it less noticeable, maybe because it plumps up the area a bit. There are the occasional zits that I have (hormonal), and it just popped out the first week, I think it’s cleaning my face. 🙂 One thing I love is I put this under make up. I noticed applying my foundation is smooth whenever I have this on. If you’re thinking it would look oily, nope, it’s not. It just glows. I also apply this oil on my hands and fingers including my nails. See, it’s a multitasker, from face to body to hair. I even apply this to baby Maia for our bonding time. Just a pump goes a long way! I think this should be a staple in your skin care. And because it’s organic and Eco-certified, you won’t have to worry using it all the time. I’m going to give mom a bottle of this. ♥
Argan oil is not cheap today, but I find Oil of Argan the most affordable. It sells at P600 per 30ml bottle.
