Review: Wild Argan Oil from The Body Shop
My skin has been feeling rather tired of late; the final stages of wedding planning, keeping up with this blog, running a business and looking after a feisty toddler are certainly starting to take their toll on my body, so I was very thankful when the lovely folk at The Body Shop sent me some of their new Wild Argan Oil range to try.
Argan Oil was quite trendy last year as a hair product, but I’ve never thought of using on my body. The Body Shop have developed a nine-product Bath and Body-care range which is indulgent, luxurious and pamper-tastic (yes, I did just make that last word up!). The Argan Oil is pressed by the Berber women in the Atlas mountains, Morocco from hand-picked and hand-cracked Argan tree nuts.
I was sent four products to try:
1. Wild Argan Oil Shower Gel (250ml) £4 RRP.
Firstly this product smells absolutely divine! There’s a hint of floral in the fragrance, which makes it the perfect shower gel for the summer. It’s wonderfully moisturising and a pleasure to use.
2. Wild Argan Oil Body Lotion (250ml) £8 RRP.
There’s something about the aroma of the body lotion that takes me back to the summer holidays of my childhood and, as with the shower gel, it smells gorgeous! It’s incredibly moisturising, and the perfect after bath or shower companion.
3. Wild Argan Oil Miracle Solid Oil (50g) £8 RRP.
This wonderfully moisturising solid oil is perfect for hair and body. It’s fantastic if your hair is feeling a little sun-kissed, or if you use heat on it regularly. I’ve been using it on my dry elbows! Sexy!
4. Wild Argan Oil Solid Oil for Lips (20ml) £4 RRP.
This has become my new favourite beauty product and is a permanent feature in my changing bag now. I suffer from sensitive lips and find it difficult to wear anything other than vaseline, but this solid oil is intensely moisturising and perfect for dry, chapped lips. Busby also likes wearing it in her “pretending to be Mummy” moments.
Other products in the range include bubble bath (which I’m looking forward to treating myself to), body butter, radiant oil and rough scrub.
The Wild Argan Oil range is available to buy in store or online from 13th August 2014.
