New Beauty Find! Organic Argan Oil

20120507-164441.jpg

I’ve been hearing a lot about Argan Oil over the last few months and have been really wanting to try it. I picked up 100% Pure Organic Argan Oil from Broadway Skin & Body Retreat and I’m totally in love. The oil is produced from the kernels of the Argan tree, known by the Moroccan Berber community as the “Tree of Life.”

It has some amazing beauty benefits including:

  • Extremely high levels of Vitamin E
  • 80% fatty acids
  • Heals skin ailments
  • Protects again premature aging by restoring skin’s hydro-lipid layer
  • Triterpenoids help with tissue healing and also have anti-inflammatory, sun-protective and disinfectant properties
  • Sterolins reduce inflammation and assist with moisture retention

It has many uses, including a face and body moisturizer, cuticle treatment, hair hydrator, etc. Basically anything that needs a boost of moisture can benefit from argan oil. I’ve been using it on my face twice a day; in the morning before I apply my daily moisturizer with SPF and at night before I apply my coconut oil.

The oil absorbs quickly and leaves my skin glowing and hydrated. My skin is extremely dry but it seems light enough for most skin types. It absorbs quickly and feels really nourishing. I also picked up a sample size of Josie Maran’s Argan Oil from Sephora recently to compare it with 100% Pure’s version. The texture is basically the same and the feel on the skin is identical. I did notice that Josie Maran’s version has no smell at all and 100% Pure’s product has a bit of a natural scent. It’s mild and goes away once applied.

100% Pure Organic Argan Oil is $19 for 1 fl oz and Josie Maran Argan Oil is 1.7 fl oz for $48. they are both amazing treatments. I highly recommend either of these oils.

Have you tried Argan Oil yet?
