Argan Oil can also be used to nourish the hair making it shiny and healthy looking.

Rating: This is one of the best oils! Amazing. My skin is left with such a soft feeling and it soaks right into the skin. I add some essential oils to it and use it as a skin serum and my friends and family have noticed that my face started to glow and became much more clear! Love this product and will continue to buy it again!
Rating: Very nice to see these cool new CO's offered, thanks!

Rating: LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! I have been using this in combination with rose hip oil and tamanu oil as a face serum and the results were way beyond my expectations. ... And almost immediate. I have been spreading the word to anyone who will listen ;-). Thanks for having this at a reasonable price. I am looking forward to trying the new organic version.... In a bigger bottle, of course.

Rating: Been using this oil straight on my face lately and loving the effects. Developed a rash around my eyes which have gotten puffy, itchy and red with allergy season upon us. This oil actually clears it noticeably every time I apply it. Going to try the organic version next time since the price isn't too much higher. Definitely a distinct smell to it, but not so unpleasant I can't use it pure, the benefits outweigh that by far!

Rating: My favourite carrier oil of all those I ordered. It absorbs quickly leaving your skin soft with a slight sheen, really beautiful. I have to use it sparingly, but it doesn't take much either in a blend. I'm going to try it in a lip balm; thinking it will be less greasy than coconut and absorb much more quickly. I definitely could use a lot more than the 100ml I bought.

Rating: I've never used this oil on its own, only in a serum with rosehip oil and some EOs. It clearly made my blend richer and more nourishing for the skin. Great price as well!
Rating: I've just purchased this oil and have had a few friends test it out with me...We are all amazed at how amazing it is on skin AND hair! I need more!!!

Rating: I bought this oil two weeks ago at the recommendation of a friend. I use it with a bit of rose oil and frankensense on my face and neck. It feels wonderful. My skin looks really healthy and soft. I am planning on buying more for my hair.
Rating: I made a hair mask with this oil and am so glad that I ordered it. This time, it was a small bottle, but I order more next time.
Je me suis fait une masque capillaire à l'huile d'argan : fantastique. Je voulais un petit format, mais je vais en commander pour la peine la prochaine fois !

Rating: Dry skin? Say hello to Argan oil. This stuff penetrates deep into skin, alleviates rough irritated areas and softens skin. Highly recommended!
Rating: Argan oil is just wonderful for mature drier skin. I have been using Argan oil on my face for 3 months or so. Within 3 weeks of the onset I noticed a huge difference in the creases on my face. They were becoming less and the skin was 'plumping' up nicely. A very good oil to use. After appling to my face I smooth the left over that is on my hands through my hair. It is wonderful. I will definately keep using Argan oil.

Rating: Fantastic! A little too expensive for me to use in soaps, and I haven't learned to make creams, but even just using it directly on the skin - WOW!
By:Basil, Woodbridge, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 15-Aug-2006
Rating: Made a really smooth eye cream with this oil. It just glides! After 3 weeks only I can see a difference. This is the "cadillac" of oil for mature skin. Well worth the price.

Rating: Just picked up today and I already love it. Put on the ends of my hair for an hour and it feels like I went to the salon. Will certainly be buying it again.
Rating: I love argan oil. I use it on my face, straight, almost daily (especially in the dry winter). I've got my mother and my boyfriend hooked on it as well. It's just wonderful.
