I’ll tell anyone who’ll listen about my love for argan oil, but I’m far from a fan of the price tag (and I even buy one of the cheapest organic brands). So when I ran out of my latest bottle of Watts Beauty pure argan oil, I decided to replace it with a less expensive blend of both argan and jojoba oils by the same brand instead. Below are my thoughts on the replacement oil.
Ingredients (provided on product packaging)- a certified organic & cold pressed blend of argan (25%) and jojoba (75%) oils.
Some great things about this product:
1. It’s free of parabens, phthalates, phenoxyethanol, sulfates, fragrance, and dyes.
2. It’s organic & cold pressed.
Product Description(provided at amazon.com)-
- “Nourishing Blend of Pure Organic Argan & Jojoba Oil – 25/75 Blend
- Benefit from the combination of 2 rich oils perfectly blended for a silky finish
- Only Organic Watts Beauty Argan Oil Direct from Morocco
- Added to Organic Golden Jojoba Oil Direct from Spain
- Add to bubble baths, lotions or use alone for all natural nourishing”
Price– I bought a 4 oz pump bottle for $16.45 on Amazon (which is almost $10 less than a bottle of pure argan oil in the same size).
Performance– This oil blend is hydrating without being ridiculously rich, and I like that about it. It seems to absorb a bit faster than pure argan oil, and it still has the healing, moisturizing properties of the pure stuff. The uses are endless, and I’ve even been using it as an all over moisturizer since the lower price alleviates a bit of the buyer’s guilt that compels me to save a purchased product for as long as humanly possible. It’s also great as a nighttime treatment for the tips of hair, a moisturizing step prior to applying under eye concealer (just the tiniest drop will do), and as a quick fix for my frequently ragged and neglected cuticles. What can’t this stuff do?!
Oh, and did I mention that it’s also great for sunburn and/or a tan that is determined to peel?
Scent– Very little if any.
Rating– I’m still subtracting a single point since $16.45 isn’t exactly chump change, but otherwise this product meets all my needs and expectations. 9/10.
Would I purchase this item again? You can count on it!
