Who doesn’t love a multi-tasking product ? With all the clutter I carry around in my handbag, anything that does double duty is a winner with me. The Body Shop Wild Argan Miracle Solid oil for body & hair is one of my favorite, do it all champions that’s always in my bag !
When The Body Shop’s Wild Argan range was launched in Dubai it created quite a stir. People who used it were raving about it and every time I went to their stores the range was out of stock.
The products I really wanted to try were the miracle solid oil and the dry oil spray. It took me a couple of months to find a store that carried the full range. While the oil spray felt lovely on my skin, I wasn’t sure if it would work on my hair. But when I tried the solid oil on my winter dried out hands (this was during January, where even Dubai gets cold !), I loved how quickly it moisturised them. And at 45AED for a 50g tin, it seemed like a bargain, so it went on my basket.
The packaging looks exactly like a giant lip balm tin and is quite easy to open. The solid oil has a gorgeous, golden hue and looks very much like hair wax ! The solid balm melts under the heat of your fingers and becomes a dry oil and can be used on your body, hands , lips & hair. Unlike some other balms, this sinks in the skin in seconds and leaves no sticky residue.
I use it a lot on my hands and it’s excellent at moisturising dry cuticles. I also use it at times to smooth over my frizzy hair (I have very curly hair, that’s always thirsty for moisture ). But it might not suit everyone’s hair though. I use it on my lips too whenever I don’t have a lip balm with me. While it’s great at keeping lips moist, the floral taste takes a bit getting used to. It’s great worn over lip stains – adds a slight gloss without removing the colour.
Since you need a very small amount each time, one pot will last you a long time (I’ve been using this for a couple of months but my tin still looks quite full).
If you have a sensitive nose, test this before buying. All the products in the Body Shop Argan oil range has a strong floral scent (a little similar to the scent of Monoi oil ) that might be off-putting to some.
This little (big) tin would be a great product to take with you on holiday too. Just make sure not to leave it anywhere too hot or it might melt!
I am curious to try some other products from the Body Shop Wild Argan range, so are there any products you recommend?
Thank you so much for reading and have a great weekend!
