Over the years I have dabbled with different products from The Body Shop. I used to love their Vitamin E face mist and have always enjoyed using their body butters. When the new Wild Argan Oil range came on the market, I knew I wanted to try some of the products. The range uses argan nuts that are sourced from the Atlas Mountains in Morocco, you may have seen Fleur De Force’s Youtube video on her adventure there. The first thing I obviously went straight to was the lip balm, I was then asked if I would like to test out some of the other products available in the range. Having just been to Morocco myself and seeing Argan Oil everywhere I just couldn’t say no.
First things first, the scent of each product is just incredible, they all smell so so nice. It’s hard to describe so If you can get your nose in a pot to see for yourself, definitely do it. For me, it’s a great scent for A/W.
Wild Argan Miracle Solid Oil for Body & Hair* link – Starting off with my least favourite product, this is the one that I have used the least. I love a good ole’ oil but I don’t suffer with particularly dry skin on my body and when I tried it in my hair, it made it feel really greasy. When used on my skin, I feel as though it’s a bit heavy and doesn’t sink in well. If you have dry patches on your body, this may be suitable for you though. I sometimes get dry elbows but I like using E45 for them now.
Wild Argan Solid Oil Lip Balm – link – When I first bought this, I wasn’t wowed by it, however the more I use it, the more I love it. It leaves my lips feeling so smooth and moisturised for a long time. You can smell the scent once it’s on the lips and it’s a really hydrating product. Perfect for the cold winter months when dry chapped lips are a given.
Wild Argan Oil Scrub* – link – This is by far my most favourite product from the range. Not only does it smell heavenly but the scrub itself is one of the best I have ever used. The scrub is abrasive enough to leave the skin feeling incredibly soft and smooth but without being too harsh on the skin. It buffs away any dull flaky skin leaving soft gorgeously scented skin underneath that feels really moisturised.
Wild Argan Oil Body Butter* – link – This body butter works so well after using the scrub, they are a brilliant duo. The body butter is quite a thick consistency which is great for added hydration. Considering how thick it is, I was so surprised when I noticed just how quickly it sinks into the skin. After applying the butter, my skin drinks it up and within a couple of minutes, my skin is soft and smooth and I don’t need to wait around before getting dressed.
I’ve been using this range every time I’ve had a bath and I just love it. Brent always comments on how good I smell as well. The scent does linger on me for a very long time so bare that in mind if you’re not a fan of scented products.
I feel a little let down by the Solid Oil for Body & Hair but the other products I tried are just brilliant. I’ve used the scrub so much that I’m already half way through the tub. A little goes a long way with the body butter, scrub and lip balm, it’s just me being overzealous with the scrub. Their are other items available from this range which you can see here.
Have you tried anything from the Wild Argan Oil Range? What would you recommend?
