This product. Is. Amazing. It's a beautiful elixir. I have sensitive, acne-prone skin that can be very picky. This product, however, was such a beautiful edition to my skincare routine. It felt like a treat. There was no slippery, oily feeling left behind. Only plump skin that somehow felt more refreshed. On top of the way it made my skin feel, the smell was heavenly. Earthy but still sweet. Not too strong. Just perfect. I absolutely loved it.... until it leaked all over my counter. I am gutted. Absolutely devastated. I can't wait until I can afford to replenish it. It's been a couple day and I can already feel my resolve weakening.

Now that I've been using this product for the past month I don't know how I lived without it! Up until now I could get away with just a cleanser and moisturizer but as my skin is starting to show signs of age (fine lines, wrinkles, discolorations) I knew I needed something else. This product smells and feels amazing on your skin. My face just soaks it right up. I tend to have oily skin and was a little hesitant about putting oil on my face but its not greasy at all. I will continue using this product as part of my night time routine to nourish and protect my skin. I wish I had found it sooner!
I use an oil serum no matter what for my daily and nightly routine and this one takes the cake for my new favorite night oil. I put this on after my essence and then usually use either a cream or the blue serenity balm on top 3 times a week and with the combo of all the moisture that sinks into my skin overnight I wake up the next morning with my skin glowing and plump full of moisture. Its amazing and when you use these oils in combo with the balm and other products you get results you can see right away.
I've been using this for a whole week and notice a nice glow to my skin. And I notice a diminish in my blemishes as well. This helps for both of my fine lines and blemishes apparantely. I will most likely be repurchasing this product again. I love it!
I have extremely sensitive skin and am always hesitant to try something new. However this has worked well for me. I use this at night before I put on the Whipped Gold balm. My skin sucks it right up. My skin tone seems more even and calmer. I have been using it for almost two weeks and have noticed a difference. I can't wait to see what my skin in like in months. A little goes a long way so you will have this bottle for a while.
I cannot say enough good things about this product. It is my favorite of all the Argan Republic products. It's on the more expensive side but you get two ounces which is a huge amount considering I use about four drops a night. It will last a long time and is worth the purchase. Put a few drops on at night and wake up to refreshed, more youthful and rested skin in the morning. It smells good too! I highly recommend this product. It will continue to be a part of my night time facial routine.
