Argan oil is produced from the kernels of the argan tree and is adored by cosmetics manufacturers for its essential nutritional components, that work wonders for your skin, nails and hair. The problem is,in a sea of argan enriched products it can be hard to spot the real gems. You may have seen my review of the fabulous Nourish Balance skin care line (if not, click here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6I5mf0205Kk) but I was also then sent their newest product, the argan skin rescue treatment. This product is 90% organic and is described as a treatment that enhances collagen and the skins natural lipids in order to protect the skin against signs of ageing.
Truth be told I was a little hesitant to try this as I have very oily skin and I was a little worried it would be too much for my skin to handle, but i'm very pleasantly surprised. The argan rescue treatment has lots of amazing anti-aging properties, but I was most interested in the fact that they claim it neutralises harmful free radicals and reduces the blotchiness and scarring of your skin, is easily absorbed so skin doesn't become oily and/or shiny. I have clear skin, but I do however suffer from blotchiness and scarring, and although my skin is oily it can get a little dehydrated from time to time, so I like to have products around that can fix that, just in case.
I really love the Nourish packaging, it's simple, pretty yet natural looking and this treatment comes in a little glass bottle with a pump, so it's easy to dispense the product out. The treatment it's self is a cross between a serum and a facial oil in my opinion, it feels amazing on the skin and has just the right texture for you to give yourself a facial massage (which is very good for your skin btw) it has a lovely citrus scent but it does feel slightly little oily on the skin upon application, and while I don't mind that at night, it's not something I like in the morning as it tends to make my makeup move around my skin.I use this at night a few times a week instead of a moisturizer, but if you have very dry skin you could apply this on damp skin as they suggest for an extra boost, and layer your night cream over the top. At £18.95 per 15ml it's a little expensive, but when compared to other products on the market that claim to do the same (yes advanced night repair, i'm talking to you!) it's not that bad.
