NEW Argan+ Moroccan Oil Skincare Range Launched in Boots



Boots have just launched a brand new skincare collection featuring Argan Oil. The range is called Argan+ and it will feature an Argan Oil Elixir, Dry Body Oil, Body Butter, Body Polish and a Sculpting Serum.

Now there are already a lot of Argan / Moroccan Oil products on the market, however where this range differs is that it contains a unique blend of five highly restorative and nourishing oils compromising of: Argan Oil, Baobab, Kukui, Moringa and Sacha Inci, each of which have been hand selected and combined together to form an all natural blend which is the Argan+ range.

I've been using the Argan Precious Oil Elixir from the range and all I can say is, WOW!
Moroccan Argan Oil, known as ‘liquid gold’ due to its amazing transformational
properties, is a prized and expensive ingredient. Used for centuries by the Berber tribe in
Morocco, traditionally to treat dry, irritated skin and now highly valued by skin
specialists for its soothing properties. Rich in omega fatty acids and antioxidants, Argan oil
helps to protect the skin’s oil barrier, shield against free radicals, improve elasticity and
protect against skin ageing.



Argan+ sources its prized Moroccan Argan Oil from Marogania, who support the sustainable development of Morocco through educational projects.




This multi tasking hero product targets skin ageing, stretch marks, uneven skin tone, dry and dehydrated skin, hair and nails. It has been expertly formulated to easily absorb into skin, protecting the skins precious hydration levels, leaving it feeling rejuvenated, moisturised and smooth.  





You only need a tiny amount of the Argan+ Precious Oil Elixir to get the desired effect. With this product, less is more. The directions on the packaging state that is can be used on stretch marks, dry skin areas and even as a facial oil. It also states that it can be added to your regular moisturiser to enhance it's moisturising and hydrating benefits. This means you can give any old moisturiser you have laying about, an extra boost - no need to splash out on a new expensive, moisturiser to get the increased nourishing effects!

It can also be used as a hair oil treatment and can be used on nails and around the cuticle area to nourish and strengthen your nail beds.

I've been using this in a number of ways - after giving my feet a makeover with my Micro Pedi I apply some of the Argan+ Oil to my feet - pop on some cotton socks and the next morning, voila - silky, soft feet!

I've also been adding this to my regular skincare regime by using it as a facial oil, and when I feel my skin is in need of an extra boost, by adding a drop or two to my moisturiser. My skin is looking and feeling great these days, I really think that the Argan+ oil is making a noticeable improvement in the hydration of my face.

My favourite use so far for this however, has been using it as a hair treatment. When I've finished washing my hair and whilst it's still damp, I like to add a few drops to my hair, brush it through then let it dry naturally. The condition of my hair has never felt so silky or soft before, and I have coloured hair, I've noticed a definite improvement in shine and manageability.

My Top Uses for Argan+ Oil:
  1. Facial and Body Moisturiser: Massage into your face, neck and anywhere else that needs moisturizer morning and night. Don’t forget your elbows, knees and other areas that tend to get dry.
  2. Nails: Massage argan oil into your cuticles, nails, hand and feet next time you give yourself or get a manicure and pedicure. Apply argan oil to your hands and feet and cover with socks and sleep with them…your hands and feet will be soft and hydrated in the morning.
  3. Split Ends: Massage argan oil into the ends of your hair to prevent split ends.
  4. Scalp Rescue: Keep your scalp moisturized and healthy by rubbing argan oil on it prior to taking a shower, let sit 15-20 minutes.
  5. Lips: Use argan oil instead of a lip balm. Use it alone or, for additional moisture and a creamy texture, mix 2 parts beeswax or mango butter with 4 parts argan oil, melt over a double boiler, stir and pour the mixture into your favorite jar.
  6. Luminizer: After applying your makeup, take a very small amount of argan oil and spread it in both hands and gently dab your cheekbones to give your complexion an extra healthy, dewy glow.
  7. Hair Smoothing Serum: Argan oil is both a finishing and styling product for hair, straight, curly, and everything in between.  Apply a small amount after washing hair and then to tame frizz while styling.
  8. Bye Bye Blemishes: Make your own blemish treatment, blending one part argan oil, one part tea tree oil and one part lavender essential oil.
  9. Scrub: Make your own sugar scrub: mix sugar, honey and argan oil. Rub gently unto the skin until the sugar dissolves. Rinse well.
You can get the Argan+ Skincare range from Boots nationwide.

The Argan+ Precious Oil Elixir I have been using is well priced at 17.49 for 50ml.
