For those of you who know me you know I am a big fan of Face and Body Oils. I used to snarl at the idea of using Oil, why would I want my skin greasy? Well I couldn’t be more wrong and I am glad I tried it. The first time I bought Oil it was for my stretch marks, then soon after I ended up trying it on my face and neck. Then became the fascination and I began trying so many different oils, comparing many.
Over time I am sure I will be sharing different opinions on oils but today I wanted to focus on one of my favourites Argan Oil.
After seeing one of my tweets, The Body Source contacted me and asked if I would happily share a tip on Argan Oil. I am always sharing tips and tricks to people whenever I can so this was no different. They kindly shared my tip on their website under the article ’20 Effective and Essential Argan Oil Benefits and Tips from the UK’s Leading Beauty Bloggers’. Firstly WOW, they think I am one of the UK’s Leading Beauty Bloggers?!! *Excuse me while I fall off my chair* WOW, I am totally overwhelmed to be included in that category, I feel so honoured. If you’re reading this Body Source, Thank you 🙂 You can read my tip by clicking here
After they posted my tip, they contacted me for my address and as a Thank you, they gifted me with their own natural Moroccan Oil! I was completely over the moon, the bottle came with a little Thank you note. Again I was so overwhelmed and thankful. So here’s what they sent me:
Guess what guys? There also gave me a code for 20% off if you guys fancy trying it!! The code is: lovearganoil20xo
Now lets talk Argan Oil and why I like it so much!
Moroccan Argan Oil smells natural, almost like wood. The oil comes from Northern Africa Tree Nuts- hence the smell!! It doesn’t sound a pleasant smell but trust me it is.
Argan Oil is perfect for hydrating, it penetrates the epidermis layer of your skin much quicker than any other oil. Unlike most oils that sit on the skin until they are absorbed, it wont be long before your dry with this one! Meaning its great for using in the morning too as it wont affect your makeup or rub on your clothes, now that’s a bonus for me!
I apply the oil onto my face and neck every evening, I have been using the Body Source one in particular for two weeks now as its brilliant for Anti Ageing. The tip I shared with the Body Source was that I like to add drops of Lavender into the oil and apply to my face and chest. I suffer with anxiety and some evenings I really struggle to switch off and calm down. Lavender is known for its calming properties and with Argan Oil being known as a Carrier Oil it means its a brilliant combination. I sleep better and wake up radiant and glowing, whats not to love?!
So what other things can it do?:
- Moisture cuticles and strengthen nails
- Help soothe skin with rashes or razor burn
- Hydrate and keep your hair shiny
- Helps Scars as it encourages Cell Growth
- Anti Inflammatory
So why not put your expensive night cream to aside and give this oil a try. I doubt you will regret it and I think it might just save you money!
