Magical Moroccan Argan Oil

Have you heard of Moroccan argan oil? A few years back my mother traveled to Morocco and came back quit addicted to the native organic oil. She convinced me, and the stuff is like magic. It aids in just about every part of your beauty regime from hair to skin to cuticles. This stuff works ladies!

Well, lo and behold... the magical little nuts turned oil are popping up everywhere stateside of late and I couldn't be more excited to share some of the best products out there with you all.

I am a self-confessed obsessive over most things Kiehl's, in particular their hair products and lotions. This company was one of the only mainstream companies I knew of with argan oil product lines until very recently.

PS: Their argan oil body lotion is great but VERY heavy duty.

I have since discovered Josie Maran Cosmetics which are almost 100% made with some amount of argan oil. She carries everything from lotions to pure oils to lipstick to mascara!

According to the Josie Maran website, argan oil can:
1. Soften dry skin... Argan Oil’s naturally high concentration in Vitamin E and essential fatty acids work to alleviate dry skin and rough patches.
2. Help minimize fine lines.... Smooth Argan Oil over skin and under your eyes for intense moisture and to reduce appearance of fine lines.
3. Help heal acne blemishes and scarring.... With regular use, Argan Oil is widely reported to heal existing acne blemishes, prevent the occurrence of new breakouts and help reduce scarring.
4. Soften cuticles.... Massage a few drops of Argan Oil onto your cuticles to soften and condition.
5. Treat split ends.... Rub oil between your hands and smooth through hair to minimize fly-aways and treat split ends.
6. Give skin a fresh, youthful look.... Argan Oil easily absorbs into skin to give you a youthful, dewy glow.
7. And it’s safe enough for use on your baby.... 100% pure, organic Argan Oil is safe enough to use on your baby's delicate skin to help treat dryness and soothe redness. You can also smooth over your stomach during pregnancy to help prevent stretch marks.

How do you like it for your hair? Somehow I feel more comfortable oiling up my face than my hair but I know that is nonsensical.
