A couple different parts to this review. I am using this product strictly for hair and not for skin:
1) I bought this as a hair treatment. I have never put any type of straight-up oil in my hair before (besides a few drops of Olaplex No.7), and someone recommended I drench my ends with this and sleep with it overnight. I did so and washed it out in the morning and didn't really notice a difference... I was unimpressed. However, I decided to try adding some to my damp hair post-shower as The Ordinary recommends, and boy did I like this!! I added it strictly to my lengths and ends (not roots!!) and let my hair air-dry and it was so glossy and shiny without feeling greasy! Love!
2) I loved the consistency of this oil. It's very thin and lightweight, almost watery. Makes it easy to smooth into hair and easily rinses off your hands. It is NOT heavy, greasy or slippery, like olive or coconut oil. Despite using a ton (thought I used way too much), my hair still looked great!
3) The smell of this product is indeed weird. Has almost a burnt rubber scent. I could smell it while rubbing it in my hands and applying it to my hair. However, once my hair dried I have not noticed it, so it isn't a dealbreaker for me. However, it could be a dealbreaker if you are sensitive to scents or picky about scented products.
Overall happy with the results and the price can't be beat. Will be adding it to my normal routine.
so i started using this on my face as a moisturizer and for the first couple of days it soothed my redness (which was my only skin problem) and my skin was glowing....haha. well bam a week later and i had painful cysts all over my chin even a couple on my cheeks which i never ever have broken out there before and my chin is full of closed comedones as well as my forehead. fml. well here i am 2 weeks later and i'm just now recovering by going back to the basics with my unscented dawn soap and cerave lotion, still trying to figure out how to get ride of these cc's. anyway, i threw it out and now i'm scared to use oils on my face at all. never again.

This oil works great for me! I'm black with type 4A hair and my hair loves this stuff .. it's not a dry type oil for anyone in a hair grade less 3A just something to consider. It's kinda weird seeing negative reviews for a oil , that makes your hair oily 😑 argan oil is not a dry oil it's dense

I use this more on my skin than I do for my hair. I only use this in my hair if I have no other hair oils and i'm dealing with a little bit of frizz. My hair is naturally thin, so this product feels a bit heavy on my hair- it doesn't "melt in" like some other hair oils do. However, I use this almost every day on my face because I have naturally dry sensitive skin. This doesn't break me out and it helps my skin not feel so dry.

I can't seem to find an argon oil that doesn't have an odd chemically smell. It seems they don't make it the same as they did about 3 years ago. This brand had a not natural smell and the oil is clear. No amber hue, no nutty mild fragrance. Makes me wonder how they are making this stuff.

I love using this in my hair when it's damp!!
Rubyred from Fort Worth
I use just a tiny tiny bit of this product on days o wash my hair and I can tell a vast difference between this vs any cream or serum I have ever used for frizzy hair. This bottle will last me forever. **use sparingly**

I've spent so much money on Moroccan oil in the past before I discovered this one for less than half the cost. This is a true godsend that I wish I had discovered years ago. I add a few drops to my Pacifica pineapple curl cream and smooth it all over wet hair. then I take a few more drops and just concentrated it on my ends. My curls are so soft and bouncy and defined. I do not intend to use this on my skin. But I will be repurchasing this for sure. It has made all the difference to my hair.

You can find another oil that makes your hair smell super soft and smells better

Try it. This product turned me on to using oil in the mornings on my hair to help its appearance. Although I felt that this oil was great at enhancing my hair, a too heavy hand will leave your hair looking greasy. Also, I am looking for a better hair oil, but I may return to this product in between product searches.

Used on hair only so far, like it. Has no scent which is fine. 6 month shelf life though, we'll see.

Didn't do anything for my hair. Didn't moisturize or add shine or anything. Never tried for skin. Won't be purchasing again.

I use this only on my hair and for me this is a game changer. I have thick curly African American hair that I mostly wear straight. Before I blow dry my hair I spilt it into four sections and but 2 drops in each section. THIS IS ALL YOU NEED! Half way through the week I will spilt my hair in two and but 2 drops on each section. For me this doesn't weigh down my hair. My hair is so soft and shiny and stronger. This has also help me with breakage. I probably will never stop using this oil.
Ori from United States
I was scared to use because in the past my skin took poorly to oil. Yes it feels heavy at first but it melts into my skin in a way that I love. My makeup blends next to perfect when I use this beforehand. 4 stars because of the way it smells. also doesn't clog pores.

If you love the look of oily hair, get this. My fav brand was out of stock so I decided to get this. Instant regret.
E. W. from Califonia
This is the best oil I've used for my hair and skin. A little bit goes a long way so it will last a while. I use a tiny bit after styling my hair and also use this mixed in with my lotion for my body. I only use on my face during winter months when it seems to need a bit more than my facial moisturizer can offer, never had a breakout from it.

I love this cold-pressed argan oil from the ordinary it is hydrating smooth and mixes well with my other hair oils only thing I don't like is the smell it gives it smell like chemicals
Jess from NY
I bought this to use on my hair. I have (thick/coarse, dense) wavy hair, and I am attempting to go silicone- and sulfate-free, so I bought this to replace my Aussie hair serum (which I love, but has silicones). The first time I used it, I used the same amount as what I would use of the Aussie serum--so about a dropper full of the oil. That turned out to be a huge mistake, since it doesn't absorb the same way and ended up making my ends look super greasy and stringy. The next few times I tried it, I stuck to just 3-4 drops, and that's been the perfect amount. It helps me scrunch out my gel cast, and seals in my hair really nicely.

Just got this and used it as soon as I got out the shower on my hair. And chefs kiss ! Left my hair so soft and smooth. I have really wavy frizzy type hair so I like it.
TeleeG from Denver
I have dry hair and skin. My hair and face soaks this up. Never breaks me out. My face feels lost without it.
Zs momma from Philly, PA
This worked great on my scalp but was too greasy for my face. It kinda just sat there and never really absorbed into my skin.
Kelly from NY
I use this product throughout the middle to end of my hair. It keeps my hair so soft and healthy. It's my go-to product.
Pipper from Los Ángeles
This product is so gross and so greasy. I've used it twice on damp hair just on the ends and the next morning my hair looks disgusting and like it hasn't been washed in a month. I used about a pea sized amount that my first time and I used less than a pea sized amount the second time and my hair was still so gross. Do not get it.
Britney from LA
I hair is really dry from bleaching and a little bit of this Argan oil makes my hair so soft and beautiful! I love this oil and it's such great value! A little goes a LONG way.
chelly from Pasadena
I don't think this was 100% pure argan oil. It still works fine mixed with foundation ect. but it was watery.
Wendy from PA
I apply to my hair after washing. The smell is awful but seems to fade. The dropper also leaks out several drops before I can even get it to my hair. It does seem to help my hair look less dry. Next time tho I think I'll try a different brand because of the smell.
