answer 1
I haven't tried the product yet, but I am planning to and I reconmend you to get the travel size no matter what. I did the math and if you buy travel sizes you get more for your money. I think it is saving like 30 cents if you were to buy travel sizes as apposed to the bigger size. However, the jumbo size is better value (a $112 value for $98). So even so, it really isnt that bad to do travel sizes still.

Question
I thought oil was bad for your face
Why is this so special that despite the fact that almost all moisturizers are advertised as being oil free, everyone is saying this is a wonder product? Based on the rating, it obviously really is that awesome. But I'm so confused by it. And also, as dumb as it sounds, what exactly is it for? Some people say one drop is enough of a moisturizer for them. Others say they add a few drops to their normal moisturizer. I know everyone's skin needs a different, and I think that's part of what's adding to my confusion. I guess it has so many uses that I don't even know where to start.

All-natural oils are actually very good for your skin. Oils derived from petrochemicals are terrible for you and this is the oil that is missing from the "oil-free" products.

In my opinion the best skin care products are like the best whole food--it contains as few ingredients as possible. :)

Yes it's wonderful! Use it for your hair,cuticles,skin,face. It moisturizes and your skin just absorbs it. Especially if you have dry skin. It has beneficial properties such as the argan oil which is found from the argan tree which has lived for hundreds of years (if I'm not mistaken) preserves your skin. The more hydrated your skin the more supple it is. This I believe contains essential vitamins for your skin. You can achieve dewy skin.

I have oily, acne prone skin. I bought it for my hair, hands and feet but ended up using it on my face when I ran out of moisturizer last winter. Did not break me out (EVERYTHING breaks me out normally) and I was not oily and shiny. I have no idea why it worked. I only used a tiny drop on the face. Great if you use it in the winter. I don't think I would try it in the summer :)

Hi. I use the Argan oil as a facial moisturizer. I like it so much better than lotions and creams, especially during the summer months. I've actually been using a full dropper full lately because I've been spending a lot of time in the sun and I want to protect and nurish the delicate skin on my face. I rub it between my palms and smooth all over my face, including the eye area. It absorbs super fast and I can just use a tinted moisturizer or foundation (if you prefer) and go. My skin looks beautiful, glowing and clean. It makes my summer tan skin pop! I know not all products are a win for everyone's skin types/needs, so maybe try the small $14 one to see if it works for you. If you can't use it on your face for whatever reason, you could always use it on your nails. Hope this helps! :)

I started by using it at night only to see how it affected my face. Once I started feeling how soft my skin was the next morning I started using it in the morning under my makeup as well. I don't use as much in the morning as I do at night for 2 reasons, I don't need to because of the moisture in my skin from the night and because I want to conserve the product.

thought the same. dont know why this oil is different but it is. does not make me break out, and everything makes my sensitive, acne prone skin breakout or atleast clogs my pores.
this stuff is amazing.
i use one drop for each eye--its enough to cover eyelid, under eye and sides where crows feet and fine lines can appear
then i use about 5 drops (drop onto center of my palm) then dab w fingers onto each part of my face, especially rubbing into my acne scars.

you absolutely can use this product on your hair! and i recommend that you do so ASAP! i'm a black woman with naturally super curly-- kinky, even-- hair that endures a lot of torture: chemical relaxers, coloring, AND heat styling. obviously i need a product to protect from and repair damage, and this is just the product i turn to. i've been using it for only a month now and my hair is shinier, bouncier, less frizzy, and i've gotten tons of compliments from friends and strangers alike! it certainly is a must buy. if you have finer hair, i would suggest rubbing just ONE drop (it's very concentrated) between your palms and distributing through your hair starting with the ends and working your way up toward the top.

My only real problem with this product so far is that it doesn't have a nice smell - it doesn't really smell like anything, so it is inoffensive, but if i am going to use it in my hair, i would like it to smell good. If you are going to use it primarily as a facial moisturizer then you may WANT it to be fragrance free, which it is in my opinion.

Will this fit into my skincare routine?
So far I use the Boscia Clear Complexion cleanser in the am and pm. For a moisturizer I use DDF Ultra-Lite Oil Free Moisturizing Dew in the morning and Hope in a Jar at night. I don't really like the Hope in a Jar and was thinking of replacing it with this Argan Oil. I have combination and sensitive skin. I keep spending more and more money trying to get my skin to be perfect. Does this sound like this would be a good switch?

I have both combination & sensitive skin, and this product was of interest to me both because I understand oil to be the newest wave of answers for skincare (cleanser & moisturiser) and also it is 100% pure therefore theoretically shouldn't aggravate my sensitivity. I love the product and will happily continue to use it. I suggest you try the small size ($14) before committing to it, but give it a full two weeks before making up your mind - especially if you haven't used an oil as a moisturiser before, it can take a little adjusting, even just because of the texture. Good luck!

This Argan oil is absolutely fine to use for problematic skin as it's 100% organic. My daughter suffers from acne and eczema and she uses this often to moisturize and soothe her skin. BEWARE of other Morocan Argan Oil products that aren't 100% pure as they usually contain silicons that can clog the pores and cause irritation. They're usually a lot cheaper and inexpensive, but aren't very good for hair or skin. Check the ingredients before buying.

I don't think this will be a problem for acne prone skin. I have oily skin and haven't had any increase in breakouts since using the argan oil.

With my first bottle, there was a faint citrus scent. I just received my second bottle and it did not have any scent at all.

Whatever scent there is, it will disappear after you apply to your skin.
