The Body Shop Argan Oil Range | Review & Giveaway!

I was lucky enough recently to be sent two products from The Body Shop's new Wild Argan Oil range to try; their Radiant Oil for body and hair, and their Miracle Solid Oil also for body and hair. The Body Shop say: "Argan oil has taken haircare by storm, and now you can experience the Hammam in your own home with our luxurious Wild Argan Oil bath & body collection".

I've been testing both products out and have to say I'm pretty impressed. Firstly, they both smell amazing (of what I'm assuming is the scent of Argan Oil), fragrant but not too overpowering. The Radiant Oil says "Dry oil with Community Fair Trade argan oil for radiant-looking skin and sleek hair". The texture/formula of this is almost identical to the dry oils already available at The Body Shop, only with the added bonus of argan oil and a super handy spray pump - something I've always disliked about the original dry oil packaging was that it just poured straight out! 

I've tried this on both my body and my hair, and it makes your skin so soft. It's a bit early to say whether its really making a difference to my hair, but having really thick dry curls means I need as much moisture as I can get, and I'd definitely say my hair feels softer already. The non greasy formula also means you can spray it on hair (post-washing) as part of your styling routine.

The Miracle Solid Oil is described as an "extra rich moisturiser for extra dry skin and hair", and its exactly that. It appears to be a solid, more concentrated version of the radiant oil, it melts easily and is perfect for those extra dry bits (elbows, knees and the like) that need some extra attention. Its also not super greasy. I've also been using this on my split ends and the rest of my hair as an overnight treatment, washing it out the next morning. I would definitely recommend this new range to anyone with dry skin/dry patches, and I think its a winner for everyone as far as haircare is concerned. Now onto the good bit!

I've very kindly been given a Wild Argan Oil Miracle Solid Oil to give away to one lucky subscriber! The giveaway will run via the Rafflecopter form below for one week and the winner will be announced via Twitter (@beautyfiend_) and contacted by email. Good luck!
