I've been hearing about argan and moroccan oils for years now. I had passed it off as just being another beauty fad, until I decided I ought to review some when the opportunity presented itself. I reviewed another argan oil last week, but this week I have an argan oil story of success to share with you. Continue on to read my review!
For review, I was sent a bottle of UNi 100% Organic Argan Oil. The oil comes in a 2 oz glass bottle with a dropper. As will other argan oils I've smelled, it has a sweet, earthy scent. Again, some people think it smells bad and like dirt, but that's not the scent I get. I guess I like the sweet smells or earthy-ness.
My Mom and I just last week got back from our vacation to Arizona to visit with my aunt, my Mom's sister. Being Arizona, it was very hot and dry. While I'm not much of a heat fan, I can handle dry heat to some degree. It would appear that my feet, however, cannot handle that much dry for that long a period. I never really get dry and flaky feet, but I did this time.
I've heard that argan oil works well as a moisturizer for your hair as well as your body, so I thought it would give it a go as a moisturizer. I applied a couple drops to my feet and rubbed it into the dry areas, then put on a pair of socks, and went to bed. The next morning I was pretty impressed with how they looked and felt, so I tried it again the next time. After the second morning, any sign that my feet were once super flaky and dry and not nice looking was GONE! I have to say, I was pretty impressed considering I started out as a bit of a skeptic. I stopped using it for a couple nights and my feet started to get a bit dried out again, and back to the argan oil for lovely, summer ready feet.
