Melvita Argan Oil ( Huile d'Argan ) 50 ml MYR 111
Last year, I made two impromptu purchases from Melvita and I now sigh in relief that the purchases were not in vain. I had success with the Rose Floral Water, which preps my skin really well before any application of serums or oils.
I am an avid user of face oils for 5 years now and I can safely attest that it works remarkably well for my skin type. ( Oily T-zone with parched cheeks ) So purchasing a face oil from Melvita came very naturally for me and I decided to go with Argan Oil, as I have used Rosehip, Jojoba and Avocado oils from other brands before.
The Argan tree is found on the Moroccan coast and produces an oil that is exceptionally rich in essential fatty acids and sterols. It has been known for centuries for its repairing properties on dry and sensitive skin and for its moisturizing and protecting qualities. A real 'beauty secret' for Berber woman, the oil is made from un-roasted Argan kernels: it is also traditionally used for massaging joints and for nail and hair care.

The oil is slighty runny, with a light yellow tinge. One may not be able to detect any scent at the beginning but with prolong use, there is a faint nutty scent to it.
Depending on how much you squirt unto the palm of your hands, this oil may seemed a tad greasy if dispensed too much. For me, I like to massage in the oil, little by little unto my face until I feel that it is sufficient enough. May I point that the dispenser pump on the bottle can be troublesome at times. It makes it very hard to control the amount we need each time. If you dispense too much, just use it for your arms or neck.
When I first started using this in September last year, I was not totally wowed by it. Yes, it was moisturizing but aside from that, I didn't see any beneficial properties it did for my skin....until Jan this year, where I began to see changes on skin.
Recently, I had been swimming quite a bit and you know how it can sometimes makes your skin a little drier and damaged than before. I began to replace my normal oil with this Argan oil and I was so pleased to find that not only it replenishes back moisture to my skin, it repairs my skin as well. I noticed that my skin looked 'refreshed' and 'healthy' every morning. It is rare that I can wake up every morning to that.
On top of that, I was having some 'tiny rash-like bumps ' on some areas of my face due to sensitivity and I was quite pleased to find that this oil actually helps to diminish the problem, thus repairing it in the process.
This is a slowly, but surely effective oil in repairing dry and sensitive skin....at least for me. It has also effectively and speedily lighten some of my acne or mosquito marks as well. A real bonus for me. What can I say...this is a winner in my books and will be a permanent resident on my beauty table !
