Over the years I’ve paired down my skin routine quite a bit. Instead of multiple types of cleansers and moisturizers, I’m down to one moisturizer, one cleanser, and one occasional exfoliating treatment. When I heard about Argan Oil, I had to try it. It sort of makes sense that oil would “trick” your skin into thinking it’s hydrated enough so that the cycle of overproduction of oil would cease. Our hormones work the same way, so why not our skin? And the idea that I could use this on my hair, nails and body was intriguing.I checked out the Josie Maran line and concluded that it was WAY too expensive. I ended up getting this one and have been using it for about 6 months. Seriously: TWO drops moisturizes my entire face. I initially was mixing one drop with my regular moisturizer but slowly phased out my old moisturizer. I’ve had blackheads on my nose for 10 years that have never gone away until I started using argan oil. The acne scarring I did have has been greatly reduced. I use it around my eyes as well and my dark circles have been helped.I also combine this with my body lotion. Once every other week, I use an exfoliating mitt (hammam mitt) and put oil on my body in the shower and scrub away. When I’m done, my skin is perfectly moisturized AND exfoliated. I use it on my nails. I mix it with my conditioner.If you’re weary, get a small trial/travel size. Start with SMALL amounts and work your way up. Maybe you need 2-3 drops on your face. Maybe less. Try mixing it with your other products so you can gradually become accustomed to the texture. I think that rule of “too much of a good thing” applies here. While others have said it absorbs quickly, it certainly doesn’t for me when I apply too much. I appreciate a dewy look, but I definitely don’t want to look greasy!I’m trying to think of a downside to the oil and the only thing I can think of is it’s a little expensive. However, the fact that it’s a Fair Trade product and rather strictly distributed is a huge plus for me.One more thing: as with most products, it takes time (especially if you’re trying to heal old scars). You’re not going to see drastic results in a month. Scars probably take the longest to heal when using any product. Although, I’ve seen results in all other areas (moisture, acne, fine lines, etc) rather quickly.BUYER BEWARE: Look at the ingredients carefully. There’s a big difference between “100% argan oil” and “Contains 100% argan oil.” If it’s truly argan oil and nothing else, it will only have one ingredient listed! I looked at a lot of argan oil products before buying this one. Some add a fragrance to it (innocent enough) but some contain a whole litany of ingredients and argan oil is way down on the list.
