As many of you know, I am a huge fan of face and body oils. So you can imagine my delight when I recently won a TOSé Apothecary competition over on Instagram.
TOSé Apothecary are an ethical brand who pride themselves on creating simplistic products that harness the power and purity of plants and the natural world. Not only is their range handmade in London, cruelty free, eco-friendly and 100% natural, but all the ingredients used are sustainable, cold-pressed and high quality.
Argan Oil is an incredibly versatile oil as it is naturally high in essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to not only moisturise but also protect the skin. I always have a nostalgia for Argan oil as it was one of the first oil I encountered as a teen due to it being widely used in the beauty industry.
I personally love to use Argan oil as a supercharging product, added to moisturisers, face masks and make-up bases to add an extra layer of moisturisation. I also use it as an overnight treatment to nourish hands and nails and as an intensive scalp treatment and finishing product on my hair.
TOSé Apothecary’s Argan Oil feels slightly thicker and richer than others i’ve tried in the past yet still maintains the easy absorption and non-greasy texture on the skin. After use, my skin felt soft, smooth and incredibly nourished, with a lovely sheen that gives my skin a dewy and healthy appearance. The scent of Argan oil is difficult to describe as it is so subtle, so it is a great product for those who prefer a low-fragranced product. As the texture is slightly thicker, I felt that I didn’t use quite as much oil per application, so a 30ml bottle is lasting me quite a while.
I recently took this with me on a short break away where I was travelling light, and it was the ultimate all-rounder. I even used it as a singular face oil as well as a body oil, which I don’t usually do, yet my skin felt and looked moisturised and I didn’t experience any breakouts of irritations. It is a great oil for versatility, and is a great place to start if you’re a green beauty beginner. Just be aware that Argan oil, like other carrier oils, aren’t all as high quality/genuine as TOSé Apothecary, so always make sure that it comes from a reputable and sustainable source. (which is usually reflected in the price of the product).
I have loved using TOSé Apothecary Organic Argan Oil as it is a lovely quality oil that really captures the ethos of the brand. I can’t wait to try more items from the range, as each product looks just as good as their Organic Argan Oil.
