Instanatural's 100% Argan Oil Review

The Instanatural 100% pure organic Argan Oil* is meant to be a multipurpose moisturizer that you can use on your skin, hair and nails. I have been trialing this for the last couple of weeks and wanted to let you guys know my honest opinion on the product. Instanatural's website says this about the product:

InstaNatural’s Argan Oil is a multi-purpose moisturizer essential for helping you achieve more beautiful, skin, hair, nails and body. Our cold-pressed oil is lightweight, fast-absorbing and free of fragrances, chemicals, and preservatives. If you are looking to refresh and soothe dry skin, repair damaged hair or strengthen your nails and cuticles, Argan Oil is a perfect addition to your daily skin care routine.
  • Keeps skin hydrated for long periods of time, reducing skin flakiness
  • Provides strength to nails and cuticles while preventing peeling and cracking
  • Prevents and decreases skin cracking on heels
  • Add a couple drops to your hair to nourish a dry scalp, repair split ends and tame frizzy hair
  • Can be used as a daily facial moisturizer - even helps to control breakouts
Argan oil is a plant oil that is known for it uses to help acne and to help nourish your hair. I have used this oil on my face, hair and also on my nails. I used this on my nails after I took my acrylics off and they were really weak and I can honestly tell a difference. My nails are so strong and stronger than they would be if I'd let them go on their own. My cuticles are also staying reasonable and I'm finding I don't need to do anything with them as often.

With my hair, I tried it as a preshampoo treatment, similar to coconut oil and I found that I didn't really notice any difference. However, they suggest using it in between shampooing and conditioning and leaving it on for 30 minutes but I just don't have time for that. I also put it on the ends of my hair before drying and I found that my ends looked a lot smoother, but I could see this being like any oil and being greasy if you put too much in. I am really happy with how it made my hair look and feel!

Now, I haven't used this as a body moisturizer, just a face. You just put around 2-3 pumps on your face and leave overnight. This is definitely an oil and I would not suggest using this as a day treatment. This made my face feel super soft and it is incredibly nourishing. 

One thing I absolute hate about this product is the smell. On their website, they say that it's similar to popcorn which is so far from the truth. It smells like a sour, gone off popcorn maybe. You can't smell it when you put it in your hair or on your hands but when it's on your face it's so overpowering. I love this product and I think it's great as a multipurpose item, I just wish it smelled better. I would most definitely repurchase this again, though and for £16.95 on Amazon, I think it's really reasonable. 

What do you guys think of this?

Til' next time! XOXO
