Zakia’s Morocco 100% Pure Organic Argan Oil
My thoughts
Zakia’s Morocco offers 100% pure Argan Oil for a much affordable price tag if you compare it to others available on the market. It's been described as a light-weight hydrating oil that moisturizes the skin with it's high content of Vit E, essential fatty acids and protect against fine lines and wrinkles with its antioxidant properties. It also claims to add shine to the hair and strengthen dry/brittle nails.

While Argan oil may be a miracle worker for some, it does have one noticeable drawback – it causes me to break out. I thought perhaps it was something else but whenever I resumed applying it on my face, I could see tiny bumps emerging in a day or two. I googled and found that Argan oil is rich in oleic acid which is comedogenic. Those with small pores (dry/normal skin types) don’t let much of it to sink in and hence rarely develop comedones (blocked pores). Since I have a combination skin, I consider myself as one of the unlucky few because it truly moisturizes the skin deeply leaving it soft, plump and hydrated with the very first use. Just two to three drops go a long way.

Speaking of the scent, it’s kind of a mild nutty aroma with some hints of spice. I find it quite refreshing. Upon application, it doesn’t soak into the skin immediately but it doesn’t feel heavy either – provided that you don’t go overboard (don’t even think about that). There's no denying that gently massaging this oil at night feels very soothing. Moreover, it would sure ease any flakiness on your skin in the colder months.

I personally enjoy using it the most on my hands. It feels ultra light and imparts a subtle glow. It makes my hands feel smooth and soft throughout the day but it doesn't replace my regular hand cream if I need extra moisture especially in winter. I haven’t noticed any major difference in my nails except that they appear healthier every time I use it. Had there been a pump, it would’ve been easier to dispense the required amount and re-apply when needed; the oil spills easily if you aren't careful so the bottle isn't very travel-friendly in my opinion. I have also given it a trial on my hair and it does what it promises. It makes my tresses shiny and less frizzy though it can weigh your hair down if used too much.

Overall, this oil is most suitable for aging/dry/normal skin type and for those who want an all natural nourishing treat for the skin. If you've got sensitive or acne-prone skin, this is not for you.

You might like it if…
  • You have aging/dry/normal skin type
  • You’re looking for a natural moisturizer
  • You use it to tame dry/frizzy hair
  • You use it sparingly (2-3 drops)
  • It makes your skin feel soft and plump
  • You find it affordable
  • You enjoy the mild nutty spicy aroma
  • You use it on your body/nails/cuticles
  • It’s 100% natural skin care product
You might not like it…
  • It clogs pores and causes breakouts
  • You wish the packaging came with a pump
  • You apply too much and it feels heavy

  1. i read over the internet that pure argan oil is sold in dark colored bottles like brown bottles. the one sold in clear or light colored bottles is processed argan oil and not the real deal. What do you think, is it true?

    1. Hey Shinaaya, I'm afraid I have no clue about that. On the website it says it's 100% pure with no preservatives whatsoever. However, it's better you clear this up with the company first if you plan on purchasing. :) x

  2. nice review.i would love to use this one.I hope they ship to Pak.

  3. hey dear, very detailed review.. I am afraid of using oils because i am having an oily skin :(
