I wrote my first blog about Argan Oil, last September. I had discovered it in the May on my trip to Morocco and I couldn’t wait to write about it – it was one of the first blogs that I did.
I also named it as my ‘Top Natural Product of 2011’
Argan Oil, which has been used by the Berbers in the Atlas Mountains for centuries. Protects and heals skin from the harsh elements of wind, and burning sun, and can also be cooked with – although they sell a different form to the cosmetic one, for cooking – it also contains twice as much Vitamin E as Olive Oil.
Suggested Uses for Argan Oil
- Anti Aging face serum/moisturiser (restores the skin’s hydro -lipid layer)
- Treats adolescent acne and treating eczema
- Helps to prevent stretch marks (suitable for pregnancy)
- Put a drop or two on to relieve chapped lips
- Massaging into the joints to treat rheumatism in adults
- Massage for babies and small children
- Helps to diminish scars and marks – including chicken pox scars
- Dry Hand Treatment
- Cuticles and Nail Moisturiser
- Hair Oil/Serum – for before or after blow drying
It is relatively hard to find, from a reputable source, in its pure form. You have to be careful even in Morocco – there were places in the market that were selling it at a very low price, and the gentleman in the place that the Argan Oil is made, was explaining that subsitutes can be sold to unsuspecting tourists!
It seems to be in every product at the moment, but in diluted quantities, even in Primark as I mention in the video blog. Brands will be mixing it with other great ingredients to create their product, but don’t mistake, for example, the Moroccan Oil hair range for pure Argan Oil.
The Pure Argan Oil company, who I found on the internet after returning from Morocco, are currently offering 10% off to readers of blusherandblogging at the following link. So a 100ml bottle that is usually £19.95 is now £17.95.
I love the Pure Argan Oil company – Argan Oil is basically the only product that they sell! They do ship worldwide, as I mentioned it is far more expensive to buy in the USA. Josie Maran’s 100% Argan Oil in Sephora for 120ml is $96.00 plus tax.
The link below takes you directly to Pure Argan Oil’s offer on their website – if you then wander away from that page on there – you will have to come back and re-click the link to take you back to the discount page.

My orignial blog on Argan Oil from September 2011 – blusherandblogging.com/arganoil
SPECIAL OFFER – 10% OFF a 100ml Bottle of Pure Moroccan Argan Oil
Their shipping price to anywhere in the world is £3.00 – I just emailed the company and asked them. Incredible value for people from the USA in particular, who would be paying 3 times as much to buy this in America. Josie Maran’s 100% pure Argan Oil in Sephora is $96.00 plus tax – so over $100.00.
