Pamper Yourself with Cleopatra's Choice {Pure Argan Oil for Hair & Skin Review}

Cleopatra's Choice logo
Although sending our children back to school can tug at our heartstrings, the fall season also has the possibility of allowing moms to focus a tiny bit of their attention back on themselves (at least for a few minutes).

While I haven't taken the time to think about pampering my hair or skin during the rush-rush-rush of this summer, the ability to have a tiny bit of time to breathe during the month of September means that I can consider making up for the extended abuse that I've long doled out.

But along with a good scrubbing of my face, a little lotion on the dry parts of my skin, and an extra dose of conditioner in hopes of removing some of the frizz from my hair, what is there to do?

Thanks to Cleopatra's Choice, the solution to pampering can all be found in one small bottle of their Pure Argan Oil for Hair & Skin.

Cleopatra's Choice Argan Oil

An online beauty retailer that has traveled the globe in search of the worlds' finest health and beauty secrets, Cleopatra's Choice is known for raising pampering to a fine art. The exotic beauty secrets that they have discovered have resulted in products that revive youth and beauty while proving effective care for the skin, body and hair.

While I was already impressed by Cleopatra's Choice and their belief that beauty is on the inside as well as on the outside, finding out that they only offer quality products with the highest standards was an added plus. Even more, most of the product line is cruelty free, vegan friendly, and helps to promote the culture and well being of the community it is made in.

After hearing all that, I was even more eager to put their Pure Argan Oil for Hair & Skin to the test.

Cleopatra's Choice Argan Oil review

Designed to moisturize the entire body, Pure Argan Oil comes from the Argan tree, and is fast becoming the hottest global commodity in the beauty industry. I love that one single product can be used to treat problems with your hair, skin and nails simply by rubbing a small amount on your blemishes, blotches, stretch marks, cuticles, frizzy locks and more.

When I first checked out this product, I had a slight hesitation about using it on my hair or my skin. After all, it is pure oil! Wouldn't it just leave my hair looking greasy? And cause breakouts left and right on my face?

However, after trying the Pure Argan Oil for Hair & Skin multiple times, I was happy to find that neither of those situations occurred! In fact, this extremely versatile product has proven beneficial and has shown positive results everywhere that I have tried it.

In my hair (which typically needs all of the help it can get), I am able to use the Argan Oil right out of the shower and let it dry, for a soft, smooth, non-greasy feeling. Or, if I wait until my hair is nearly dry and then rub it on, the oil provides a shiny, frizz-controlling barrier that I can definitely appreciate!

For an extra boost of softness, I apply the method that Cleopatra's Choice recommends, which is to work the Argan Oil through my hair and on my scalp and leave it sit for 20 minutes before proceeding to shower and wash my hair like normal. The sleek, shiny, smooth results are great — and my hair looks and feels stronger than before.

When it comes to using the Argan Oil on my skin, I've found that it rubs on easily and absorbs into my heels, hands, elbows and just about anywhere else without leaving a greasy feeling. While I've never put much thought into taking care of my cuticles in the past, a dab of this oil on them seems to be keeping them hydrated and less prone to breaking.

Overall my skin hasn't been too dry this summer, but my feet have taken a beating from walking around barefoot or in flip flops for months. I've taken to putting a few drops of Argan Oil on my heels and really like how they feel softer, less calloused and have fewer cracks — I'm looking forward to utilizing this magic liquid more this winter when the dry air really takes its toll!

I would love to try this out for my hair! It tends to get a bit dry, thanks for the great review and for sharing!

I definitely need to try this, my hair is always dry!

I'm pretty shocked that it didn't leave an oiliness on the skin. That's great. I like the idea of letting it sit and do its thing on your hair and then showering it out too.

This would be great on my dry cuticles!
