Beauty Essential: Argan Oil

April 13, 2011By 5 Comments

There has been a lot of hype about argan oil and how it’s the greatest natural beauty product of all time—Well, I just wanted to let you guys know that the hype is ripe! It’s fo’ reals, yo! I ♥ ♥ ♥ it!

Really fast, if you’re like “WTF is argan oil?” *gasp* ← jigga what?! Anywho, it’s the greatest thing ever. The people of Morocco have been using this vitamin E & essential fatty acid-rich “liquid gold” for centuries ’cause they know what’s up! It works wonders for hair (conditions, moisturizes, tames frizzies), nails, and skin (treats dry skin, acne, psoriasis, eczema, wrinkles, and it won’t clog pores).

There are quite a few brands of argan oil to choose from, but I’m currently digging Amal Oils’ 100% Argan Oil ($35).

10 Reasons You Need to Get Your Hands on Argan Oil ASAP:

  1. It’s safe for all ages and skin types.
  2. It absorbs easily and doesn’t leave any residue.
  3. It prevents stretch marks. Preggies rejoice!
  4. It helps fade scars, too.
  5. It helps control the production of sebum (hallelujah!), so you can say goodbye to those nasty blemishes!
  6. It fights wrinkles!
  7. It de-frizzifies hair and makes it shiny and soft!
  8. It helps heal brittle nails.
  9. It’s said to have aphrodisiac and tonic properties…
  10. And it makes a lovely massage oil. Seems like #9 and #10 make a good pair! 😉

Have you tried argan oil? Like it? Love it? Dish!

    I have serious Rosecea, and Argan Oil is about the only thing that can calm it down. I use the brand KAE L’Huile de Beaute from France and have had amazing results. This stuff works!

    There’s a new brand here in Canada that’s cheap and vegan, for us starving-student types called Live Clean. You can get it at Shopper’s Drug Mart or Walmart. They have a line of Argan Oil hair products that are amazing for super dry hair, and the Smooth styling cream with Argan is the shit. Plus, it doesn’t mess with my manic panicked locks. Check it out if you’re north of the boarder!

    I MUST try this! It doesn’t look like Whole Foods carries it, so I will see if there are other 100% argan oil options there.
