Eden Allure Argan Oil Reviewed by Lindsay Shaw
Eden Argan Oil is an oil that comes from Morocco. Eden Allure gets this oil directly from the tribe in Morocco, and the donate a portion of all sales back to this tribe. You can use this oil on your face, your hair, your nails or any other part of your body. I particularly ordered it for my face to deal with the dryness my skin experiences through winter that no other oil on the market seems to be able to help with.
I have tried so many different things, before I saw reviews for the Eden Allure Argan Oil and so I decided to try it. Especially after having spent so much money on other skin moisturizers that were either too thick or failed completely when it came to moisturizing my skin. It may sound silly to put oil on your face even if you have oily skin, however you will notice that when you do this the two oils usually balance each other out.
To apply it, I just use two pumps in my hands and then I rub it in circular motion massaging it into my face. I usually apply the oil at night and sometimes when I have time in the morning too. I prefer to let it set in for at least 30 minutes before I apply any make up over it. As a result, it seems I apply it in the morning on the weekends, that is on Saturday and Sunday.
As far as results are concerned I have seen great results from continued use of this oil. The driest spots on my face is the area in the middle of my forehead all the way down through the middle of the nose. I actually call this my T-zone. So usually when I put make up on my forehead it would be flaky. However since I stared using the Oil, I no longer experience this problem the oil goes on smoother. My skin just feels really good in that area.
I really like this oil and I will definitely be purchasing it. I think it will be good in the Summertime too, I think it can be used all year round with no problems at all. It is very light and does not cause any breakouts whatsoever. Some people say that it helps with acne but I have not really noticed this, in the few weeks that I have been using it. I tried applying it on my hair which is really thick, I did not notice any real changes.
Other areas I have used the oil is on my cuticles, as well as the knuckles of my hands. It really moisturizes without the sticky feeling although it does feel like oil. It is not slimy neither does it feel like olive oil. it is very thin and soaks easily into the skin. It is a little expensive, but I do not mind buying more of it because it has actually been working for me.
Traditionally when people are thinking about Moroccan Argan oil everyone was talking about how great it was for the hair and how smooth it makes your hair. This is absolutely true when you put it onto your hair. You hair will feel so silky and so smooth and so soft you will not want to use any of the other products.
This is simply because Eden Allure Argan Oil is 100% pure and feels a lot lighter than most of the other hair products available on the market. It does not weigh your hair down you hair feels light and free.
This is all good, but the number one reason most people will get excited about this product is because you can also use this oil as a facial moisturizer or like a serum. It works amazing for your skin too, and not too many people have caught onto this.
It is very fast absorbing and extremely healthy for your skin. You will not have to use a moisturizer anymore this oil will make you skin, smooth, soft and supple. It also helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles. It is safe for use on children too, you can apply it on their dry knees or dry elbows.
When you spray it initially it looks a little runny and watery, but once you rub it into your skin you can feel almost immediately that your skin is much softer. When compared to the other organic Argan oils on the market this is more affordable for a 2.2 oz bottle. It lasts for a while, you only use about one squirt for your face and two squirts for your hair.
Throw away all your other products and use this. You can use it anytime of day, even in the morning before you apply your makeup and it will stay on better. It has no scent and it is 100% pure and organic from trees in Morocco. The Berber women there call it liquid gold.
Moroccan Argan Oil is similar to Olive oil but it is much richer. This oil is now being used in many skin and hair products, because of its properties. The Argan tree only grows in Morroco and a few areas in Greece. Hence the government of Morocco is now protecting the trees, so that noone chops the trees down.
The Argan tree is a wild tree, and it can not be planted like apple trees. It can live for 150 to 200 years. The fruit it produces are intially green, they turn yellow and then fall off the tree beginning in May.
In Morocco besides producing raw Argan oil, Argan is also used by the women of the Berber tribe as nutrition for both themselves and their animals. It is also used medicinally and as a cosmetic. They cannot imagine life in their region without the Argon tree because it is very important for their livelihood.
The nuts are harvested from the ground in June and July. after they dry in the sun for 2 days they are peeled and the nuts are removed from them. They are then grilled to get them real crispy and left to cool down. The next step is the press, which presses the nuts to make the paste.
Water is then added to the paste, to help when it comes to squeezing the organic Argan oil from the paste. The oil is then collected and stored. The women have been doing this since they were girls, and many of them remember their mothers and grandmothers doing the same process too.
So I have been using the Eden Allure Argan Oil for over a month now and I thought that now would be a good time for me to sit and share my thoughts on it with you. If you do not know what Argan oil is, well it is extracted from and indigenous and endangered tree in Morocco called the Argan Tree.
It is extracted from the fruits that grow on the tree. The women mechanically crush the seeds in the fruit and that is where the oil comes from. So every time you purchase Moroccan Argan Oil you are essentially supporting this tribe, because all the distributors in the US actually buy this oil from this tribe.
Initially I was excited to use it, unlike most other skin and hair products it absorbs very quickly into the skin. It also has a wonderful moisturizing plumping effect on the skin. I did however get some bumps on my jawline but those may have been due to the fact that I had not been exfoliating that area of my face. So if you are going to use it on your face, make sure you monitor it constantly.
As for my hair, I have chemically treated kinky dry hair. The ends can sometimes get really wirely and dry too. I run this on just the ends of my hair and I have amazing results. I do not run it through my whole hair because it tends to give me this oily look that I am not a fan of. It almost looks like you have not showered in a week.
I have also used it for my cuticles and hands and it does a fabulous job on them.If you have really dry cracked hands this pure Argan oil will work wonders for you. My friends have been mentioning that my hair now looks very shiny and silky and its all because of this oil, especially when you straighten or curl your hair.
I give this product two thums up! Click Here for more customer reviews.
