Smells like Fuel

Never got a chance to rip the benefits of this oil. It smells just like a fuel (my friends confirmed) and I can not put in my mouth something that smells like a gasoline… I using it as a moisturizer for legs for about 3 weeks, but do not see any change 🙁

smells horrific

i bought this with plans to mix it with almond oil and lotion to make a superior moisturizer but the smell is horrific and it gave me massive head aches. I even tried to mix in scent but nothing seemed to cover it. I had to through it out, im sure it works as a moisturizer but i just could not handle the smell

An all-purpose beauty product? I think so!

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.

One of the best choices for both skin and hair moisturizer

I have discovered argan oil several years ago, and have been using it ever since both as skin and hair moisturizer… either as a stand alone, or better yet, combined with raw unprocessed shea butter.Shea butter (the raw, unprocessed kind) by itself is just a bit too hard to dissolve in hands, so I melt some shea butter in a bowl (for that I do not use microwave, I prefer placing the bowl in the pot of hot water).Then I add argan oil (sometimes also raw organic coconut and/or avocado oil) and a hint of organic lavender oil to create the best natural skin and hair product I have experienced so far.It also makes a great and unique home made gift for any girlfriend on your list, and I have reaped success with a gift like that repeatedly.What I really like is that both product (argan oil and shea butter) add a lot of moisture and shine to your skin or your hair without ever making it look greasy and/or feel sticky and oily.Also, I have used this particular brand of the oil and find it of a very good quality.Highly recommended!!

Comparing 4 Argan Oils purchased on Amazon

I love Argan oil and am interested in purchasing the best at the best price so I decided to purchase the four organic ones offered on Amazon that interest me the most. This review is comparingELMA&SANA; Golden Argan Oil 100 Cold Pressed Virgin Organic Certified By Ecocert -1oz(30ml),with100% Cold Pressed Organic Argan Oil 100 ml BY AAA Shea ButterandWatts Beauty ArganGoldTM 120ml /100% Cert. Organic Cold Pressed Argan Nut Oil – Hair & Body -MoroccoandSlice of Nature Virgin Argan Oil. 100% Pure, Raw, Cold pressed. 100ml(3.5oz).BTW I am not addressing a skin condition just wanting to maintain healthy skin with a youthful appearance.Comparing color and thickness, the oils appear the same. The only differences I noticed are slightly different odors and skin sensations with these four oils I purchased at the same time from Amazon. The AAA SHEA butter has a slightly musky / musty odor. The Watts Beauty has a slight deodorized odor about it and increases my heart rate slightly upon application to my skin and appears to engage my immune system as my neck glands will swell shortly after application. The Slice of Nature and the ELMA&SANA; have the freshest odor of the four with the Slice of Nature having the stronger nutty scent of the two; skin application feels very soothing and calming in a quenching sensation sort of way. The Slice of Nature feels a little thicker and leaves more of a barrier on my skin whereas the ELMA&SANA; seems to absorb in better and be less noticeable upon touch and less sheen reflection. The differences are subtle and most consumers probably would not be able to tell the difference at all. I considered not posting the review since any difference was negligible, but decided there might be others out there wondering the same thing. If so, please click helpful below.

used for stretch mark prevention

A Spanish friend recommended using almond oil to prevent stretch marks. So I bought a bottle of this product during my first pregnancy and applied it nightly. I can’t say whether or not this product deserves the credit, but I didn’t get any stretch marks. So I’ve purchased another for my second pregnancy and at 32 weeks, no stretch marks yet.The oil is smooth, I found it stored well and it’s a good value for the quantity.

Happy….but now have questions

I bought this last year after reading that Jackie O used sweet almond oil on her skin every day:)I got this because it was 100% pure, and the price was pretty good. It works like a dream and does not have a weird smell. I then read all the reviews and was pretty unhappy to read that the company uses dangerous PVC plastic bottles. I would like to know whether the company has rectified this issue before purchasing this again. Does anyone have an update on this??? Thanks to the reviewers who pointed this out. If the company corrects this issue, I would most definitely use the product again. I gave it 3 stars even though I was happy about the product, because unfortunately it is not a good practice to subject your customers to carcinogens.
