Everything You Need to Know About Argan Oil and 5 Best to Get
1. Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Riche, $59 for 100ml from Lookfantastic
A favourite of discerning French women, this multi-purpose oil from Nuxe contains macadamia, hazelnut, sweet almond and argan oil to intensely nourish and soften the skin. Apply on damp skin right after you step out of the shower. The gorgeous scent is a plus, too. You can also use it on your face, hair, cuticles – anywhere you can think of.
2. Aurelia Probiotic Skincare Firm & Replenish Body Serum, US$60.83 (approx. $85) for 250ml from Net-a-Porter
This fast-absorbing body serum is scented with mandarin, angelica root, bergamot, cedarwood and chamomile to soothe the senses while it hydrates and moisturises your body. Use it post-shower, or as a cooling treatment after you’ve been out in the sun.
3. Sachajuan Intensive Hair Oil, $62 for 50ml from Sephora
Sachajuan is one of those brands you’ll keep seeing over and over again on social media, probably because everyone wants to rave about how good the products are. This leave-in treatment contains a blend of argan oil, sunflower seed oil and rosemary extract to tame your tresses. Just one pump goes a long way, so use sparingly.
4. Pixi Glow Mist, $28.50 for 80ml from Lookfantastic
Yes, K-Beauty is moving back towards semi-matte finishes, but we aren’t ready to give up our glowy miens just yet. This Glow Mist from Pixi contains argan oil and propolis to hydrate, nourish, and add that coveted K-drama glow with just a few spritz over your makeup.
5. The Ordinary 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Moroccan Argan Oil, $11.50 for 30ml from Lookfantastic
This is straight, unadulterated argan oil – no frills, no fuss. Work a few drops through damp hair to keep frizz in check, or apply it on your face as the last step in your skincare routine. You can also try mixing it into foundation for a glowy finish. Just make sure you’re not using a water-based product, as it will not work well with oils.
