Product Review - Douvall's Organic Argan Oil Moisturiser

As a beauty writer, I have slathered a ridiculous amount of various lotions and potions on my skin over the years. I do however, always maintain loyalty to one moisturiser/face wash/exfoliator for a good month or two in order to discover the true effects.

One thing I have discovered in my journey of merry skincare sampling, is that the simpler the formulation, the better. Often, fancily packaged products that beckon me with their glamorous facade leave me bewildered after weeks of use when I look in the mirror and see that there is no difference whatsoever to my skin.

Out of the many pampering products I have tried, I must say that Douvall's Argan Oil Moisturiser made the most difference.

After weeks of use I did notice (especially in the mornings) that my skin looked clearer and had a noticeable dewy glow.

Containing naturally occurring skin-nourishing ingredients such as vitamin E, essential fatty acids and oodles of  free radical-fighting antioxidants, it contains only one ingredient, organic Argan oil, ethically sourced from a woman's cooperative in Morocco.

This skin-smoothing bad boy has truly become one of my beauty must-haves.

It even travelled with me and a friend to Croatia for a week-long holiday and saved our sun-parched skin and hair from the dregs of dismal dehydration. Oh, how we fought for the last drops of this golden-hued wonder oil. How we fought....

No other product seemed to condition our straw-like hair and dry holiday skin as well as this fantastic natural product.

Argan oil is also renowned for its use to not only moisturise and prevent ageing of the skin, but to treat acne, so its perfect if, like me, you are plagued by the odd blemish now and then. In fact, while using this product I did notice my skin had never looked clearer and was happily pimple-free. Hoorah!

So, I want to say to Alicia Douvall, the creator of this skincare marvel, thank you for a simple moisturiser that does so much. Thank you for proving that less is more and that chemicals are not needed to make skin look beautiful.

  1. Really great article. Definitely going to try this product.

  2. I couldn't agree more - simple products are the best! I especially love products that contain argan oil! After the past year, I am a huge advocate of using types of hair & skin care that are natural. There are so many benefits to using argan oil, I am surprised that more people don't use it. Like you said, after years of using the commercial brands - I never noticed any improvement in my skin until now. I love reading reviews like yours to get information about products. After I had given a few different products a try, my favorite is Defend from I am extremely impressed on how much nicer my hair feels! If you love products with argan oil, it's definitely worth checking out.
