Argan Naked Facial Oil

Lush have the annoying ability to know exactly what you need, even if you don’t realise it yourself until it’s too late and by then you’re too hooked. Perhaps that’s why they’re incredibly successful: they’ve secretly discovered a way to read the consumer mind, and are now one step closer to world domination. Not that many of us would mind if they were.

As I’ve found so many times: one moment I could be innocently experimenting with a new release, and the next second I’ve been using it for six months straight and panicking at the mere thought that I might run out in the near future. Such is the case with many of the recent naked facial oils that have come out in the Lush Labs.

As the name suggests, Argan Naked Facial Oil shares its scent with the Rose Jam range: a beautiful combination of rose and lemon that intertwines together like two lovers on their wedding night. They’re a perfect combination, working in perfect unison with each other to offer a bright, uplifting and very beautiful aroma.

How this differs from the likes of the Rose Jam Body Spray and Black Rose Bath Bomb is that the lemon is a little more prevalent. While the rose presents itself as a sweet, syrup-like floral fragrance, this format features a little extra lemon to intensify the fruity element and give it uplifting properties more so than many of the products in this scent family.

The inclusion of both the date syrup and the argan butter certainly make an impact on the overall aroma - not to mention lending their services to make this naked facial oil incredibly nourishing on the skin. Coupled with the cocoa butter, there is also something very buttery about the smell. While I wouldn't say that I could detect the chocolately element of the cocoa butter, there was something almost nutty but much smoother and sweeter than I was expecting from this smell. 

What is great about Argan is that firstly it appears to be one of the only Lush products to contain prickly pear oil. After doing a little research on this miracle ingredient, I discovered that this component is known for its high content of vitamin E - which is exactly what you're looking for if you want your complexion smooth, toned and looking the best it has ever done so.

Alongside, this the generous array of butters and oils work at leaving your skin replenished, nourished and definitely far more moisturised than I have seen my face in a long time. Yet, what is so incredible about this facial oil is that it is not heavy in the slightest. If you're expecting something greasy or oily, or perhaps even too heavy for your skin, think again. 

I found that Argan Naked Facial Oil glided over my face with ease, leaving behind traces of the product which I then massaged gently into my skin. It was really easy to use but didn't immediately melt when placed into my hands, which was definitely a welcome bonus. Whilst you can melt the disc between your fingers and then apply, I find that some of the product is lost as it gets absorbed into your hands instead.

Yet once it was on my skin, it was absorbed very quickly, and I wasn't able to detect any of the oils or butters a mere thirty seconds after I had applied it. Having said that, my face appeared immediately more radiant; my cheeks were glowing and appeared plumper; and the effects of this lasted me for a good few hours.

Let's be honest: it cannot do the job that a cosmetic surgeon can do, if you want to completely change the skin on your face. However, for a small disc of butters and oils, it made a huge difference, without being problematic in any way. I cannot imagine it irritating many people's skin at all, or creating a build up in the pores, as it was super light to use.  

Ultimately, this facial oil would suit all skin types, although I would probably say that if, like me, you have a fairly dry complexion, you may wish to try something a little heavier to gain extra moisture. While I may have loved Argan, and I would buy it again if the opportunity arose, I can understand how, especially in the winter months, consumers may be looking for something a little more intense on their parched skin.  

Argan Naked Facial Oil does its job perfectly, and the inclusion of the rose absolute will ensure that your skin won't be irritated: it fact it may even calm it down. This would be the perfect facial oil for those with sensitive skin, and those who want something that impacts their complexion without being too heavy or greasy.

Now that Lush have me hooked, I don't quite know how my face is going to survive when I run out of this little beauty. If only they could read my mind once more and realise how important it is to bring this out as a regular item. These facial oils are definitely a naked idea worth getting excited about.
