I've already told you about my new love of argan oil, which we discovered while on holiday in Agadir, Morocco, this year. If you haven't read it before, you have to head over to my blogpost here to see the crazy goats climbing the trees and Juliette having a go at extracting argan oil the traditional way in one of the cooperatives !) I've been really pleased to receive some products containing argan oil since we got back, the latest one being Melvita's 100% Argan Oil Roll-on for Dry Areas (Face & Lips).
It comes in a 10ml glass tube, making it small enough to keep in your handbag or desk drawer at work, so that it's on hand for whenever your skin is tingly or your lips are feeling dry or chapped with the cold weather. It has a screw cap and a metal roller ball so there are no leakages. I wasn't actually overly keen on the roll-on format to begin with - it's quite hard to get the product out if you want to cover a large area, but for small, precise areas it is quite handy and saves getting greasy fingers. According to the website, the roller ball also gives a stimulating massage sensation, encouraging lymphatic drainage.
The oil is quite neutral - it doesn't have the roast almond fragrance that I remember from the argan oil that we tried in the cooperatives in Morocco - but it is very nourishing and instantly soothes dry or chapped skin or lips. Argan oil is the cure for all ills, according to the Berber women in Morocco, who use it for their skin, nails, hair and even in cooking.
