I was excited to try out this argan oil as I have read that it is extremely rich in Vitamin E and antioxidants! Personally, I use almond oil on my body as a moisturizer whenever I feel like my skin needs a little TLC or to sooth sunburns from my work outdoors.

I was given a sample sized kit which lasted me a week and decided to give this product a try on my face. In terms of it being an oil, it is relatively light and it really isnt greasy. However, I find that it left my skin looking shiny. With a week usage, I have to be honest and share that I didnt see any radical difference in my skin condition. The plus point is that I didnt breakout from it and I take it as a sign that despite my skin type being oily and very sensitive, it accepted this product harmoniously. I would recommend to only use this as an overnight product for your face.

On the hindsight, I should have put this product on my super long frizzy hair and maybe the difference would be more obvious. Keeping split ends at the bay is a nightmare and being in a pageant once again, my hair is worth the investment.

I love this product a lot! It gets adsorbed easily by the skin and it doesnt leave my skin feeling greasy or looking shiny. The scent is heavenly! I was given a week's worth of sample so, I can't really see any significant improvement with my skin but as with the argan oil, there wasnt any negative reaction with this product!

Ideally, and as what I did, I used the brightening serum for the day and the argan oil for night!

Note: This post is a sponsored review; not a paid advertorial, and my thoughts and opinions on it are from my personal experience. These products were being used and tested out for a week, should there be any further positive or negative reaction from them after a week's trial, I will amend accordingly to ensure 100% honesty in my review :)
