Essence of Morocco Facial Argan Oil Tried and Tested

Essence of Morocco Facial Argan Oil Tried and Tested
Genevieve Sibayan

FACIAL-ARGAN-OILI don’t know about you but winter dries out my skin something wicked. This might sound like a first world problem and it probably is, so I didn’t expect the solution to come out of Morocco. My particularly sensitive skin hates even the lightest of moisturisers at the moment so I was keen to find a product that doesn’t sting.

I’ve heard a lot about Argan Oil recently and I’m a bonefide cynic so when I was asked to test out Essence of Morocco’s Nourishing Facial Argan Oil I figured there was nothing to lose. I hate to admit this in public to the entire internet but yesterday I had dry flaky skin in patches around my face and my skin was feeling so dry and irritated. I tried EoM’s Argan Oil out overnight in the place of a night cream and I geninely am impressed with the results. My dry skin issue had dissapeared.

“miracle product.”

Essence of Morocco Nourishing Facial Argan Oil is 100% pure, natural and organic. It’s extracted from quality, non-toasted kernels of the Moroccan Argan tree and it has nothing but Argan oil in it! It is naturally lightly scented and not deodorised. The smell is quite green and smells lightly of a very extra virgin olive oil. The consistancy is incredibly light and I was surprised by how quickly it was absorbed into the skin without any oily residue.

Argan Oil is naturally rich in vitamin E and antioxidants, the oil has been used for centuries by Moroccan women for its unique skincare properties. By protecting the skin, Argan oil slowing down signs of ageing. It neutralises free radicals, improves skin elasticity and minimises the appearance of fine lines. It’s also said to have anti-inflammatory properties and can help with Psoriasis, Eczema and Arthritis.

The packaging used for Essence of Morocco’s Argan Oil is 100% UV protected so your product stays fresher for longer and it’s also recyclable, something that’s important to the UK-based family business as all their ingredients are natural and ethically sourced. The Argan fruit is handpicked by local women in rural areas or Morocco and the sun-dried before the oil is extracted from the fruit’s kernal. The women are organised in a cooperative style which enables them to earn a living and educate their children.

So dry skin may be a first world problem but one that has a third world solution thanks to this miracle product.

Facial Argan Oil comes in bottles of 50ml for £22.85. Find out more about Essence of Morocco at their online store.
