Argan oil is a non-fragrant plant oil harvested and cold pressed from the kernels of argan trees, which are extremely capable of adapting to severe environmental conditions. It contains several beneficial fatty acids and lipids, it’s a source of vitamins and antioxidants. This multi-tasking miracle deserved the nickname »liquid gold« due to it’s amazing powers and rarity. It’s »the« ingredient to consider if your skin or hair is dry, however it’s powerful enough to soothe the symptoms of many skin ailments like acne or eczema. I’ve used it on my hair, face, body and nails, as an ingredient or 100% form; it quickly became one of my beauty staples.
Afrodita, one of my favourite domestic brands came out with a few products containing argan oil and I instantly knew I was going to love them! My skin confirmed it after a few pampering evenings, starting with the Mystic Argan oil shower gel (2,10€ for 250ml), later applying the complementary Mystic Argan nourishing body milk (3,30€ for 250ml) and »locking« in the moisture with 100% SPA massage oil organic argan (4,80€ for 150ml) (which works amazing as massage oil, as the name suggests). I’m enjoying my body care ritual, which leaves my skin feeling velvety soft and nourished. The only thing missing for the ultimate pamper is the one hour full body massage… Preferably each evening.
