Jodie’s use of the term: a small hint or clever tip! (Think Hints from Heloise!!)
Zakia’s Argan Oil
I was gifted this Argan Oil free of charge but was not paid to write this review. Thus all opinions are mine and mine alone!
If you’ve been reading any advertisements or magazines recently, then you’re probably familiar with the argan and moroccan oils that are available. I actually first started using these oils in my hair when I won an oil spray that was specifically for hair. What I didn’t realize is how versatile these oils can be. Did you realize that with menopause comes a decrease in skin collagen and oils? So these oils may be more helpful than you realize.
First off, for my hair, I use it in a spray bottle mixed with water. I usually water it down more than half, so it doesn’t weigh down my hair and make it look greasy! Since I live in Denver, Colorado (a very arid state) and I have curly hair, I need a ton of moisture for my hair. This Zakia’s oil seemed just as good as any other ones I’ve used.
Secondly for my skin, I started using it as a moisturizer. I used to use baby oil until I heard a rumor that mineral oil may not be the best for me (not sure if this is truth). I really like using the argan oil watered down in a spray bottle because then it’s not as “oily” and easier to apply.
Lastly for my eyes, I began using it to remove my eye makeup. I actually used to use baby oil for this many, many years ago until I had some eye problems. I’ve always liked the idea of oil on that fragile skin around my eyes so I figured what a great idea. It did work wonderfully (I don’t use waterproof mascara, so I can’t speak to that) without leaving an unpleasant residue.
The lowdown: This oil worked very nicely. Zakia’s website says that this 2 oz. bottle would cost $15 with their sale (here), so not too bad a price. I’ve used it for 3 weeks and still have about half the bottle left.
