Hi, Just like most people I discovered Argan Oil by chance, my sister use it for her hair and she forgot it in my bathroom. After using coconut oil, sesame, jojoba, olive, shea butter, cocoa butter... I've used every oil I come across since I live in a very dry area and my skin is so sensitive that I can't use regular cosmetics.

I have to say Argan oil is rejuvinating, antiwrikle, absorbs well, leaves an awesome smooth texture. Its basically the best oil I've ever used. Fine lines diminish in front of your eyes upon first application.

There's currently a lot of hype towards Argan oil and its becoming the trendy ingredient in the cosmetic industry. It's a bit expensive in pure form but it's definitely worth it. Works like magic. Don't bite on the cosmetic brands and try to find 100% argan oil. 2 drops are enough for your whole face.

I think it's a bit too expensive to use as a hair treatment, there are cheaper alternatives like coconut oil. But for cosmetic purposes a single oil bottle can last for more than a year with daily use. A little goes a long way.

Try it you will thank me later.

Hi all, This may seem like a trendy post but I have had amazing results with Argan Oil. About 6 months ago my mild acne turned rather severe. I had about 80 little white bumps on my cheeks and about 5-6 on each side would flare up into small red pimples. My face was really starting to scar so I went to the dermatologist. She put me on Ziana cream and suggested oral antibiotics as well. As I did not want yeast infections I opted to try the topical Ziana cream (which is tretinoin and an antibiotic). I used this for several months with about a 10% improvement overall.

Finally I went on Amzon to buy some Argan Oil for my hair and noticed that a lot of reviews had said that it had helped with their Acne. I've been using it for about three weeks and I've had no new blemished and all my scars are healing. It's really been a miracle for me. This is my current routine morning and evening:

1: Use Clairsonic exfoliating brush to wash off makeup with a gentle cleanser (I just use a regular cleanser not an acne specific one).

2: Rub about 20 drops of Argan oil over my face and under my chin.

I wish I had before and after photos, but all my family and friends have remarked on the dramatic improvement.

Hi... I read with interest your comments about acne. You would not think that an oil would benefit acne and acne scarring, but Argan Oil really works. It's 100% natural. It also helps with stretch marks.
