Benefits of Argan oil?
Scalp: If you're dealing with dry scalp, apply some argan oil to a cotton ball and dab your scalp with the oil. If you do this before bed, you'll give the oil plenty of time to moisturize your scalp before you wash your hair in the morning.
Face: It might seem scary to apply a pure oil to your face, especially if you have finicky skin, but we have been doing just that and our skin is completely turning around. It's smooth, clear and radiant, all thanks to using argan oil as our daily morning moisturizer.
Body: You can use argan oil for a full body moisturizer, applying just as you would a body lotion or cream. Apply the oil right after you get out of your shower for best moisturizing results.
Hands: Argan oil is a great oil to use on your hands, especially on your cuticles and on your nails if they are prone to cracking and peeling.

One of my inspirations in life, Tricia Gosingtian has been raving about how Argan Oil saved her hair from total destruction, Read here. So I said why not? With its price, 150 and its imported from Canada, I felt it's worth investing. Also I loved the smell! It smells like powdery salon like smell. Now that's one heck of a smelly description! Lol.
- smells good (powdery like smell)
- cheap (150php for 354ml)
- makes hair super fluffy after
- not tested on animals
- imported (not all stores sell it)
- lid is annoying
Final Verdict : If given the chance for it to be available again, I would certainly but at least 3 bottles of it. But as of the moment, I can't find it in S&R anymore. It's that good since local conditioners now costs almost the same but without the argan oil goodness. According to the bottle, it's not only a conditioner but it is a hair treatment. Also, I wish the lid would be in pump form or in any form as long as they spit out more conditioner.It really really helped my hair look a bit healthy alongside with a hair make supplement I'm currently using that I will feature on my future post.
So I have a secret to tell you readers. If you want salon soft like hair for less than 10 minutes, then buy this product then add a handful of Silk Secrets Hot Oil. Let it sit on your hair for 5-10 minutes preferably with shower cap. Then viola! After rinsing your hair, I swear your hair would be soft, look and feel healthy.
What product should I feature next? Skincare? Hair care? Or makeup?
I would like to hear from you guys, silent readers are not appreciated. Also thank you guys for reading my blog.
