If the three wise men ever carried a beauty product while crossing the desert sands following the star to Bethlehem, it would have been Defend Argan Moisturizer Oil ($48USD) by Purelement Naturals. Who is to say this wasn't offered to the blessed one? After all it contains argan oil (liquid gold), frankincense, and myrrh. No one ever mentioned how dry and aging the three wise men looked. With this possibility in mind, I tried out this worthy oil and wondered could it become a Holy Grail?
Defend Argan Moisturizer Oil does the following:
- Tightens skin
- Regenerates skin cells
- Evens out complexion
- Protects elasticity
- Softens skin
- Reduces inflammation and redness
- Lavender* - Cell regenerator, combats wrinkles, effective against acne
- Frankincense** - Balances oily skin, smoothes and defends against wrinkles
- Bergamot* - Clears skin infections
- Carrot Seed* - Revitalizes and moisturizes dry skin
- Myrrh** - Cleanses, tightens, and rejuvenates the skin
- Geranium* - Anti-inflammatory, helps control redness and uneven skin tone
If you read the ingredients listing, as mentioned, the product contains organic and wild harvested ingredients. This means nothing is synthetically derived. You get the pureness of the ingredients and this means the quality and efficacy with it.
When I tried this product, the first thing I noticed is the smell. It smells worthy of a beauty product and not the smell of oil. The lavender, frankincense, and myrrh adds that natural scent without the perfume factor. The scent is just enough for the aromatherapy effect. The second thing I noticed was the oil. Pure and slightly thick and clear in color. With this in mind one or two drops is all that is needed for the face and neck. The third thing, the bottle. It isn't one of those dropper bottles but a pump. You know how many times I have tipped over those dropper bottles and screamed? Enough to say bye-bye to my $$$! The bottle also prevents UV rays from penetration and oxidation, making the shelf life of it at least 3 years.
I have used this as a multi-purpose product. No restrictions for this one. My cuticles to my over-processed hair have been drenched with moisture without any greasiness and oiliness. One other method I tried was mixing it with a liquid foundation, making it the ultimate BB cream!
You may think $48 is pricey for Defend Argan Moisturizer Oil. Other brands may claim their product to be made out of argan oil but is it pure? You sure they aren't diluted with some other oil? This would make the texture of it feel less thick, thus using it up more and finishing it up more quickly. If you can't moisturize your face with just 1 or 2 drops then you aren't getting the quality that Purelement Naturals is offering. With this in mind, instead of shopping around hoping to find a a good argan oil product, why not just go to one of the best? After all, this could become your Holy Grail!
