Argan oil is one of my favourites. I have tried many different brands and I can tell you not all oils are created equal. I can always count on Ooh! oils of heaven for their quality.
Argan oil is packed with vitamin E, which helps your skin retain water and stay hydrated. It also contains linoleic and oleic acids which help your hair maintain moisture.
It is a great multipurpose oil, you can apply it to your face, hair, scalp, nails and body.
The consistency is lightweight and it has a distinct natural nutty scent. The pipette is great for dispensing just what you need. I apply 2-3 drops and massage gently into damp cleansed skin.
It spreads easily on the skin and absorbs quickly without a greasy residue. It nourishes, moistures and balances my skin leaving it soft and smooth with a natural glow.
I also love to use it in my hair to seal in moisture and tame frizz.
