Review: 100% Argan Oil

In a recent online beauty purchase, I decided to buy a little bottle of Argan oil to see what all the fuss was about. Is it really a miracle hair and skin treatment? Does it really heal damaged hair and dry cuticles? I had to find out.

I bought the .5 oz bottle of Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan. For only $14, it wasn’t a big investment and would let me give it a good test.

Argan Oil

Overall, I like it. Do I love it? No, probably not. Here are my thoughts:

In my hair: Not a winner. My hair isn’t damaged or extra dry and even only the smallest amount of argan oil made it greasy. If you have very dry hair or breaking hair, it could be the right treatment for you.

On my skin: Truth be told, I haven’t been brave enough to put it in on my face. But legs, arms and feet have been tested. For me, it doesn’t absorb fully. It absorbs enough to not feel greasy but I can certainly tell it’s there. It does a fantastic job of fully moisturizing your skin and is easy to apply evenly. If my skin was dry or on my next beach vacation, I’m going to try it again.

On my nails: This is my favorite place to use it. And wow, does a little tiny bit go a long way. A drop or two will easily cover all nails on one hand with plenty left over to rub around as a full-hand moisturizer. I also love it on my toes and all over my feet.

I’m glad I bought the small bottle as a little certainly goes a long way. I think to use it regularly, you need to have very dry skin or dry hair. Otherwise, use sparingly and more as a treatment.
