I usually use one drop for each cheek, which I then blend downward into my chin area. I use another drop or two for my nose and forehead, depending on the level of dryness I'm experiencing. Honestly- In my experience, it's hard to use too much.... start with a few drops for your face, and then add more if needed.

I now have incorporated this a few drops of this oil into all of my usual skin and hair care treatments and am loving the results. My hair is shiny and doesn't frizz, and my skin is hydrated, but not oily/greasy. Some light scarring on my chin has started to lighten despite sun exposure. I'm no scientist, and this is no study, but I really like it! I prefer Timeless Skin Care Argan Oil. There is a slight scent to the oil - a scent that I happen to enjoy, but is not what I would consider aromatic by any stretch.

I've had pretty good luck so far using this on my sensitive/acne-prone skin. It sinks in and feels very silky, I even put it on my acne prone areas and it doesn't seem to affect it. The regular seems to stay on the skin a little longer and feel a little thicker. I'd start with this lighter version and if isn't giving you enough moisture than move to the regular

Either formula will be good for sensitive skin however, if your combination skin is more on the dry side I'd suggest using the original but if its more on the oily side try the light version. In either case its important to use it sparingly, only two to three drops so you're not just soaking the skin in oil.

Yes. I've always had some redness and dry skin around my nose, but then I quit smoking and it became so much worse. I tried so many products and nothing worked, until I found this miracle. I drop a little on each side and on my nose, gently rub it in and literally can see it working. It helps significantly the first time you apply it; When I first bought it I used it everyday and after a week I noticed the flaky skin and redness had decreased a lot. Now, it's gone! I also have combination skin and was worried that it might make the normal/more oily areas too oily, but it didn't. My skin is clear, smooth, doesn't itch, and just feels so good. Seriously amazing.

I have combination/oily skin and I'm acne prone (especially if I don't get enough sleep). This works fantastically for me. It has not made me break out at all and you would think it would since it's oil. But I've read that as long as the moisture in your skin is as even as possible, you won't break out so badly. I only use about 3 drops (I'll use 4 at night since the colder seasons are approaching) on my entire face. And if it doesn't work on your face, you can use it on the ends of your hair or cuticles. But I really do hope it works out for you. It really is amazing.

Yes. Give it a little bit of time to soak in before applying your makeup otherwise it will smear around and remain oily. Typically I wash my face then apply this, wait about 20 minutes then apply my makeup. What is so great about this product is that though it does absorb, it doesn't "disappear" like other moisturizers, if you know what I mean. Skins remains dewy but not oily, giving that fresh, awake look. I love it!

Its a great moisturizer for an oilier skin type. The argan oil light is going to help neutralize oil production on your face while still providing hydration. The light formula is a great alternative to the original because it leaves a semi-matte finish and feels light on your skin. If you are reluctant to use it by itself you can also mix it in with your moisturizer!

Chemically, I'm not certain. The heavier compounds are probably filtered/separated out. As far as the product goes, the light version is less viscous and absorbs faster. I've used both the regular and light for my hair and the "drying" time is somewhat noticeable. However, for my skin, the light takes about 2-3 minutes to absorb. I put it on and then brush my teeth while it soaks in.

If you have Oily/Combination skin, than you would want to use the Argan Oil Light. The products are identical, except the Light version is (obviously) a little lighter and formulated for skin that doesn't need quite as much hydration.

The light argan oil is much lighter on the skin, which allows it to absorb even faster. The regular argan oil is a bit more of a heavy formula, which is great for extremely dry skintypes.

Safe to Use On Lashes?
I've never used oils before, and some have mentioned using this on eyelids. Could this be considered for use, sparingly, on upper lashes? Has anyone used it this way? Or would it be better, in your opinion, to stick with something such as rose-hip oil ( which I've heard is good for lash-conditioning )? Thanks in advance.

Your hair and skin sound exactly like mine. I went with the light, the original was too heavy/slick. This absorbs quickly, keeps oil at bay, and moisturizes dry areas. Also, I tend to use dry oil spray for my hair (organix makes a nice one...also, living proof makes a great hair mask if you're looking for something to moisturize but not weigh down).

While I've never used this specifically for my lashes, I have gotten some in my eye just because I applied to too close to my eyes. It was probably mixed with my own face's oil and sweat so that's what it felt like - sweat in my eyes. It wasn't a bad burning feeling but it was definitely uncomfortable. Of course, anything not pH balanced for your eyes will fell uncomfortable.

Yes. I use it on my eyelids and gently brush it up the lashes with my fingers. I do this because with the original formula I noticed my lashes slowly getting thicker and longer. Unfortunately has the same effect on my legs and feel like I need to shave more often.

You can use a mixture of oil and serum and application goes by texture.
Serums - especially water based ones, are first. Next, a couple of drops of facial oil (if you are using one!), topped off with your moisturizer. In the case of a heavily silicone serum, I would probably skip the oil and go straight to moisturizer.

I would not use this on your hair. I know it says you can, but I tried it one morning after running out of my regular moroccan oil. I couldn't blow dry my hair fully because it was so greasy.

According to the website description, the light is the ester of the argan oil, so that is why it is lighter. However, that does not impact its hydrating properties or general skin beautifying.
