Good for my skin- But stinks!
sensitive skin friendlyThis product is one of the few oils which does not break out my extremely sensitive and dry skin. It is super hydrating and can be used on the face and even for hair. I find my skin absorbs this oil easily and my skin is left feeling smooth and supple. Highly recommend
Good for my skin- But stinks!This leaves my skin feeling great but I can’t get over the smell! I know it’s because it’s pure cold-pressed Argan oil and completely normal, but I hardly use it because it smells like manure and I can’t handle it!
Just as good as high endI really think this is as good as more expensive argan oils, i’ve Tried and own quite a few. My skin is dryish but prone to blackheads, and I find that if I use this alone or too much my skin gets a little bumpier. Personally I prefer the marula oil for my skin type but I think this is great value and quality for argan oil.
NourishingThis is great for my dry skin, a little goes a long way too.
Great valueThis product is great value for money. It does what it says. You don’t need much oil so the bottle lasts for a while. Doesn’t leave akin feeling oily. I use it morning and night after my serums and before moisturiser, mostly under my eyes where I’m prone to dryness. Great for normal to dry skin.
GorgeousAfter being recommend argan oil by a beautician I purchased this one, my skin is looking so lovely and even, I also apply it to my lashes for enhanced growth.... AND IT WORKS! My lashes have never been longer. LOVE
Oil that works!Love this oil. Great for moisturising dry scalp and patches of dry skin on face. Will buy again for sure.
Perfect oil, so many uses!This oil is lovely. I use it in my hair to control frizz, I also use it on my skin when I need some extra moisturizing in Winter. Will definitely purchase again!
Great value!This is much cheaper than the Moroccan Oil range, and I think it's a no fuss 100% oil that does pretty much the same. Only difference is the smell, I love the smell of moroccan oil although all the oils in the Ordinary smell the same and its not so pleasant. Doesn't bother me really and does the same job!
Very wonderfulVery very moisturising and feels fantastic on the skin. Very impressive product!
A Must HaveI am obsessed with Argan Oil and am so stoked to find such an affordable one! I literally use it for everything, its great for those who suffer from breakouts as this can be healing and reduce the appearance of scarring etc. I also add this to my hand and body moisturisers for extra hydration and put it in the ends of my hair also! I cannot live without this product, absolutely LOVE!
So light!I love this oil, it's light enough to use during the day and hydrating enough to use at night. Amazing
Great, Genuine ProductI have complicated skin that is both dry and oily depending on the day and product, so I've had trouble finding an oil or night time moisturiser that hydrates and doesn't just sit on the skin and make my skin feel greasy and gross. This product is my go to for overnight hydration - it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin, it soaks in and by morning my skin is glowing. It may be too heavy in summer but so far I'm loving it! I will be repurchasing this product for sure.
My hair loves this.My hair loves this, I put it in after I’ve washed my hair and let it air dry with it in and it makes it feel so nice.
Good quality for the priceGood and nourishing, works just as well as pricier brands.
It is very rich & oily though. So use sparingly or it will leave hair greasy & weighed down. I use it on my hair & my daughter’s hair - really leaves it feeling moisturized and soft.
I didn’t have an issue with the smell.
Weird smell but works amazingThe smell is a bit weird I can’t lie but my hair loves this!!! My hair is very dry and damaged so I massage this through my hair and wrap it up and has repaired my hair drastically
very nourishingGood cheap alternative to expensive argan oils and it does the same thing. Very nourishing but it is very oily feeling and takes a while to dry!
Not too oilyI've been using this in my hair to help fight frizz. I have fine, thin hair and an oily scalp which gets overwhelmed by heavy oils. I've been popping a few drops through the lengths after washing and have noticed a huge improvement in the amount of flyaways. Hair does not look oily, just a nice amount of shine. Total recommend.
Perfect for dry and dehydrated skinI had been using an extremely expensive pure argan oil for years and loved how it made my skin and I wasn't sure if The Ordinary version would live up to my expectations. I'm surprised to say that it was just as good and is saving me money!
Great oilMy skin is generally dry and I bought this product for winter dryness and to complement with my AHA + BHA mask (the ordinary as well).
The touch of the oil seems to be dry but once you leave it on the skin it is very oily, that is why I only apply when I go to bed. When you cleanse your face in the morning the skin is very soft.
I would recommend it, but not for every day routine
If you can get past the smell it’s not too badThere’s nothing really wrong with how this works but I find the squalene (which has no scent) gives me better results without the strong smell (it’s kinda like olives). It’s just a bit much.
Just as good as the high end productsI used to use a more expensive Moroccan argan oil prior to discovering the ordinary. I was paying 5 times the price for identical ingredients to this product. This argan oil delivers hydration and makes the skin feel soft and smooth. I recommend apply to freshly cleansed skin and using left over reside from your hands on cuticles or end ot the hair
Fantastic!This is awesome for pretty much everything. Face, lips, hair, hands! You name it, it’s so nourishing and my skin has never felt better. Definitely one of my favourites!
Great for dry skinThis oil has helped so much with my dry skin over winter, Its best used at night to let it absorb in as it does leave my skin oily immediately after use.
So so so so goodOh. My. God. WHERE has this been all my life. This product is just insanely good. I use it morning and night and my skin feels like butter! It’s also great in my hair! Seriously love this to death and think the price is incredible for how amazing it works!
Good for dry skinThis oil had a pretty bad scent, but I am not too sensitive to it so I felt okay about it. It may be annoying to those that are sensitive to scents. I have combination skin and felt that it was too heavy for me. It would probably be really great for dry skin. I had a couple of breakouts from it (very small), almost as if it clogged my pores.
GreatI use this oil on my hair and face. It gives my hair a very healthy and shinny look. It also hydrates my face, I always add a few drops to my moisturiser. Definitely recommend.
OKThis product doesn't have a great smell - I'm not really sure how to get the most out of it so I haven't used it much.
Great multipurpose!Such a great product for such a low price point. I use it sporadically and sometimes even mix it into my hair masks. I haven't been able to fault this brand!
Amazing value for hydrating oilI have used facial oils for a while, but I wanted to try this as a more affordable option. I don't feel as though I've lost any value though. I only use a small amount but my skin feels very hydrated and glowing the next day. Especially if used in combination with other ordinary products such as niacinamide/vitamin C it will really enhance your complexion without needing to spend too much.
What's not to loveFabulous product, very affordable - does not have strong "Argan oil" smell. I use it as part of my morning routine mixed with L-Ascorbic Acid powder from the same brand and it is working wonders with my dry/mature skin. I apply with the ascorbic acid to clean skin, let it work for an hour (boy does it tingle!) then top with Essano Rosehip spf 15 moisturiser. I'm really happy with the changes I'm seeing after a week of this routine.
Beautiful hairI use this oil on the ends of my hair and my hair despite being long is super healthy looking, hydrated and shiny as a result. Totally recommend it
Love this!I have used a few different Argan oils on my face. Definitely only need a tiny few drops to do whole face & neck & ends of hair.. quality oil at a great price!
not a good hair product at allI normally use Moroccan Oil but I was short of money so thought I would try this considering it is so cheap. I have long red hair and like to put a taming serum on my ends after washing it and to tame frizz when dry. This product is terrible. It has made my ends thick and matted. I wish I could submit a photo to show. My ends are so matted it looks like little, skinny dreadlocks, if I could post a photo I would! I would not recommend this product. It is no counterpart to the more expensive products. I will just buy the proper product from now on instead of trying to find a cheaper version
Didn't like itIt's way too sticky for me, doesn't absorb and is hard to apply..... I wouldn't buy it again
Bang for BuckI've bought this twice and have been happy with the product for the price point. I've only ever used it on my hair. I have naturally curly hair and this is nice to nourish or to cast set my curls. I also like to use it like a scalp treatment in the winter. A little seems to go a long way and I find this quite a heavy oil to use so it can be easy to go overboard. It's nice for the price and I like that its 100% Argan Oil with no fillers.
Great for fine hairI have straight, fine hair (but a lot of it) that’s prone to breaking fairly easily, particularly when it’s dry, and I found that this oil helped a lot with hair breakage. It’s light enough that I don’t find that it weighs it down, but hydrating enough that I don’t alway have to use conditioner (as I find that it really contributes to weighing down my hair). I prefer this argan oil over the Moroccan oil brand argan oil, as I find that that has quite a strong fragrance which can be a bit overwhelming. My sister, who has curly/wavy hair, also loves this product as funds that it’s moisturing enough that she doesn’t have to use 10 other products along with it. But that being said, I think for people with fine, thin hair that tends to fall flat, I don’t think I would recommend this as it might easily make it look greasy and flat.
effective but strong smellNot a lover of the smell. I apply a pea size amount at night on to a damp face sprayed with an organic rose face mist, I wait at least 15 minutes to absorb then repeat the above and finally apply a face cream. My skin is always on the dehydrated side so needs replenishing with oils and serums a lot. This above routine leaves my skin glowing and balanced the next day. Ive been told I have combination skin and even with two layers of this on a night it doesnt cause any excess sebum on any parts of my face. If you can look past the not so great smell, this oil, and at the price it is, is truly wonderful.
Wonderfully moisturising but odd smelling!This product is really well priced for the quality- the oil itself and the packaging feel more high end than the cost indicates. A little goes a really long way with this product, a few drops will smooth the ends of your hair, your whole face, dry patches etc. The only thing that is a bit off-putting is the smell which is really strong and "earthy" however it doesn't seem to last long once applied, I also sometimes mix a few drops of this into body butter which gets rid of the smell also!
A little goes a long wayI only use this product on my hair after I've straightened it, and it works really well. It keeps flyaways and broken strands locked down and keeps my hair looking straight and shiny all night. I only use a tiny amount as it is quite strong and there's a fine line between shiny and greasy, especially when your hair is thin like mine.
GreatSoft, dewy and glides on the skin.
I use 2 drops on my face as the product doesnt need to be user generously. The oil moisturises and softs the skin really well.
Moisturizes wellI use it as a facial serum as I love facial oils, especially in Winter. The smell IS awful when first applied, but I find it dissipates quite quickly after applying. I love that it leaves my skin so soft. In colder months when not wearing make up, I reapply throughout the day as my skin just soaks it all up. Doesnt leave an oily sheen. Will purchase again.
Used to be my moisturiser of choiceI used to use this religiously but now I’ve discovered squalane and I much prefer it as it doesn’t have any smell and moisturises just as effectively. I still have a bottle of this which I sometimes mix with the squalane. My partner isn’t a fan of the scent when I put it on my face at night but I don’t mind it, it’s not pleasant but it’s not offensive. Love the low price point and that it doesn’t clog your pores.
Worth itI have paid a small fortune for hair treatments that cost 5x the amount of this product. I will be repurchasing
Great productI have for years used Moroccan oil for my hair and have just tired the ordinary’s version. I agree the smell is not bad just not nice either. The consistency is a little less easy to spread through the hair but otherwise it worked well to smooth my frizz and create a nice curl. Plus the low price is a huge bonus!
SIMPLY THE BESTThis is one of the best oils , its hydrating and great for very dry lips.
It leaves your lips very soft, its realky amazing
Best lip treatmentI have dry lips all the time. For years I have tried multiple treatments - coconut oil, paw paw treatment etc. after using this Argan oil for a week at night my dry lips have visibly got better- less peeling and cracks. Would highly recommend.
Great for my low porosity hairJust started the curly girl method and this oil is my new holy grail.
This light oil is great to run through my hair, adding a light shine without just sitting on top and making my hair look greasy. So much cheaper than other brands too.
I cannot recommend enough
Don't be put off by the scentI bleached and dyed my hair in the spur of the moment, and didn't adequately protect my hair. The argan from The Ordinary seems to be doing a great job, I am using this together with multi-peptide serum though. I massage the multi-peptide serum into my scalp, and the argan oil through the length of my hair. My hair has become much stronger . I have no idea if which or both products are responsible for the stronger hair and fewer strands of hair fall out, I plan to continue to use both, because I don't feel like taking any more chances.
Smells nothing like the Moroccanoil's product, but I don't mind it enough to stop using this product, and it seems to fade pretty quickly. You can always add a tiny bit of the Moroccanoil version on top, if you want the fragrance.
Smells not so goodCan't really tell the difference in how it works to other Argan oils but it didn't smell great!
Smells badI love Argan oil and bought this due to it's price point. It does not smell like traditional Argan oil, despite the labeling it has a strong (almost additive) smell.
It also does leave my skin or hair feeling the same way that other 100% Argan oil brands have in the past. I won't be purchasing again.
Smelt weird but was moisturisingThis oil was very moisturising and I love how versatile morrocan oil is as it can be used on both skin and hair. I just couldn’t get past the weird smell. I have used other brands of morrocan oil before but they didn’t seem to smell the way the ordinary one did. It’s not overpowering and I would definitely use it again. Great for dry ends of hair or skin that needs that extra moisture.
Hair SaviourI actually liked the smell, im currently using on my hair and it works wonders, you only need about 4 drops but it’s made my hair so smooth and wavy
the scent is weirdI know it's relatively inexpensive compared to other argan oils on offer on the market, but the smell of this one is quite terrible
not a fanthis smells not so nice, and i've tried other argan oils but this is the first where the scent has made me dislike an argan oil product
Thicker than the other face oils by The Ordinary but worth itI find this quite heavy on the skin, but it's nourishing and leaves your face feeling nice a smooth.
Good for skin and hairI love using face oils once every few days and this leaves my skin plump and prevents fine lines. I sometimes apply it to the ends of my hair and leave it on for an hour before showering and my hair after washing is completely shiny and nourished. Totally recommend!
Good facial moisturiserI use this as a moisturiser for my face and sometimes my hair. It’s a light oil so it doesn’t exacerbate my oiliness and doesn’t clog up my pores. It’s fine to use under makeup (i imagine it would work particularly well for those with dry skin) but these days, as it’s been summer and I have oily skin normally, I’ve mostly stuck to using it at night. Also, really good value for the price!
Nice productI was expecting a really nice smelling oil (based on other Moroccan argan oils I’ve had in the past) but this doesn’t have a great smell but it’s not unpleasant. Ive been putting it on at night and waking up feeling great. Definitely too heavy for the morning skin routine. You only need a small amount so it’s amazing for the price. I’ve also been using it on my hair. I have got curly hair and this product is great to run through wet or dry hair. Too much and it will make your hair oily though.
Great addition to your skin kitI purchase a lot of high-end skin products & I bought this as an addition to my kit. It's completely natural, with no added fragrance and is in a pure undiluted form. I found it to be so hydrating for my dry skin. I mix a few drops in with my nightly moisturizer to boost the hydration and once a week I sleep with a 'mask' of the Argan Oil on my face for extra hydration. I would recommend this product to anyone at this price point you cannot go wrong, it's very useful in your beauty care regime.
Perfect for wound healing!I purchased this oil in anticipation of having a super in my neck.
I use this oil 2-3 times a day along the incision line and I get almost instant relief from itching and tightness that are commonly felt along wounds.
I plan to transition to a silicone based product for scar healing but this oil has been perfect for keeping the skin around the incision hydrated, soft and relaxed. Would recommend 100%!
*Addit: I also use this on my poor doggo who has a few patches of dry skin from undergoing chemotherapy and the results have been amazing.
Fantastic for Dry HairI have the driest, frizziest hair on the planet (fine texture, curly and LOTS of it), and my hair adores this oil. I use it nearly every day as a treatment/smoother and find it virtually interchangeable with Moroccan Oil brand. Only setback is it smells too earthy as it has no added fragrance. I just put a couple of drops of essential oil in and it's perfect.
Smells like real argan oil!I actually liked the smell, im currently using on my hair and it works wonders, you only need about 4 drops but it’s made my hair so smooth and wavy
great for the priceI've been using this for facial massage. It works great and is very moisturising for my dry skin. It does smell a bit, but I've been mixing it with bio oil, which helps a lot.
Can be cloggingThis is a divine oil. but I wouldn't use it on my hair, and it did make my dry and sensitive skin clog up a little on my forehead. I have passed it onto a friend to use who is loving it, but as I am not usually prone to congestion, I was surprised that this caused me to clog up. Good for certain skin types I think
Quality product and great priceLove this product. It smells just like Argan oil bought in Morocco (which isn’t exactly pleasant, but at least you know it’s the real deal). I have dry skin and hormonal acne and Argan oil works wonders on it. Definitely recommend.
For dry skin :)I have very dry skin and boy this is a very thick moisturising oil. It kinda doesnt even run very much! But its absolutely perfect for my very dry skin. It does have a slightly weird smell but I don't even notice it really. It does take longer to sink in than other oils I have used, so will see how it goes over time. Have only used on skin, not hair.
Get what you pay forI purchased this is hope of finding something a bit cheaper than the Moroccan Argan Oil branded oil I have used for years. I found this oil really heavy and made my hair very oily instead of soaking in as such. Have used this on my face which is very hydrating. Probley wouldn't buy again
A fabulous skin and hair oil - if a little funky!Ok so I agree, this product smells nothing like the other Morrocan Argan oil products you might be used to. It smells a bit funky, It reminds me of the aroma of olive tapenade! But it's not that noticeable, as you only need a few drops and the smell dissipates quickly. It's so great for my hair, really improves the texture and shine. And with no sillicone it's better than those other hair treatments, delivering more nourishment and no fillers! Haven't tried it on my face yet, only my hands, but i'm encouraged by other reviews here to give it a go!
affordable quality argan oilI use this product on my hair (dry and curly) and this product nourishes the hair very well, without being too oily.
Good (on a budget), not great (in comparison)Definitely not the best version of Argan OIl I've used, but irresistible due to the price. I add a couple of drops to my wavy hair after a few days to refresh the natural curl and remove some frizz (be careful as it gets greasy quickly so use on the ends and sparingly). I also use one or two drops with other oil based serums in the evening instead of a moisturiser. So I'll probably buy again, but would look for a different option if I could afford it.
Very nourishingGorgeous oil! Very moisturised my dry skin
Glowing and supple skinI mix a couple drops of this into my moisturiser every morning and night and it has given my skin such a boost in hydration and glow . Definitely a staple in my routine
Great for skin and for hair!I have dry skin that I have to keep on top of, I put this on my skin every second night before bed and wake up with plump skin. I tried it on the ends of my hair overnight too and was very happy with the results, my hair soaked it up. Great price, will rebuy.
Beautiful!I have slightly dehydrated skin and this oil work so well with keeping my skin hydrated and plump.
I'm looking into trying it as a natural organic alternative to regular hair oils.
It works!While the smell is a little overwhelming at first, it doesn’t linger once used. The hydration it gives is worth getting past the smell for sure. I have dry/frizzy hair and I prefer this more concentrated oil to the much more expensive morracanoil products.
Best thing since sliced breadLet me start by saying that I have immensely sensitive skin, that is also dry and acne prone ...you name it - I’ve got it. But this little gem has saved my skin, and my pockets. I used to use the Josie Maran Argan Oil religiously but not only is this more than half the price, I can vouch that it works BETTER than JM. I don’t know how or why but it just does. I use it as a moisturiser under my makeup, I use it for my dry under eyes, I use it for literally EVERYTHING. And I don’t understand how so many people complain about the smell, it’s NOT even bad - if anything I find the smell calming. Plus, you can barely smell it. This is a must if you have troubled skin - or just skin in general (hahahahaha), face feels and looks AHHHHMAZING!
GoodLike this product, Use this on my skin & hair and can see a difference after I got past the smell
You can use this on everythingThis is such a versatile product. I use it morning and night on my face, and the hydration is fantastic. Also amazing for hair and nails. Yes, the smell isn't fantastic, but neither is putting highly fragranced things onto your skin.
Its Argan Oilfor those that don't like the smell. well this is what Argan Oil really smells like. that moroccan hair oil is full of other products its not pure Argan Oil. I use it on my skin and hair at night and its great. Once absorbed the smell is gone.
Push past the smell & the hydration is worth it!This product isnt the greatest smelling, kind of smells like horse manure mixed with a chemical but once you get used to the smell, the product works wonders. I've seen much more expensive products out there, but this guy just proves to be the best value for money.
Alternative to MoisturisersI have fair combination complexion that is prone to hormonal acne. I also have fair oily hair. I have previously used Moroccan Argan Oil on my hair but find The Ordinary's Moroccan Argan Oil too heavy for my hair type. I regularly use The Ordinary's Moroccan Argan Oil on my skin at night and find it extremely moisturising leaving my skin with a dewy glow by morning.
Pretty GoodI have been using this product as an additional layer of moisturisation for my dry skin.
At first the smell was unpleasant however i quickly became used to it.
i use this product AM and PM and found that it works well
100% yesReally great for those with dry skin. It feels a bit greasy when first applied, but it gets soaked up within 5 minutes. Love this addition to my skincare routine, helps me keep flaky skin at bay!
Repeat BuyThis is my go to face oil. I use it after cleansing morning and night, just a few drops. I find this is also fabulous on my very dry curly/frizzy hair, it really adds non-greasy much needed moisture. This Argan oil is the best value around, yes it has a very natural almost outdoorsy-grass aroma, but for me that's great - no added anything.
Smooth & Silk hairGreat product for the price. I use this to blow dry my hair and it leaves my hair smooth and easy to manage! The smell is a little bit off I guess that's just the way it is for a pure cold pressed argan oil.
scent is funnyThe scent of the oil is a bit ~ weird - however, is not bothering me to use.
It is really good oil for this price!
I have really dry skin, and i put 3 drops on forehead, 3 on both side on my face and 1 on the nose,chin.!!!!
Let it absorb for few mins then put my face cream (Fresh Rose face cream) after.
It is a bit oily at first few mins BUTTTTTT!!!!!!
After an hour, you can feel your skin smooth, glow and flawless!
Great for hairI prefer to use this on my hair rather than my face as it is super nourishing and too much for my skin. I have dry hair and this makes it soft and shiny.
INCREDIBLEArgan Oil has changed my life. Apply it to your skin and hair and see for yourself what it can do for you!
love!Ever since i started using this product i have had clear skin. i suffered from acne and large pores. Using this product and a few others from this range has transformed my skin completely. Love!
Great Value for MoneyArgan oil can be very expensive and it's hard to find one that hasn't been messed with too much...this one by Ordinary is an excellent option to try out. Yes, it's a natural oil so don't expect perfume smells BUT it is a fantastic moisturising oil for both face and hair. For this price, you can't go wrong!
Foul smell disturbs me!!Eeek! I’m sorry I was hoping to love this but it REEKS! The smell when you open it or even put one drop of it in your fingers is foul. I won’t be using it. Such a shame :(
Great!If you’re someone that likes your skincare to smell nice I would steer clear of this product as it has somewhat of the faintest, almost manure like smell. It doesn’t bother me as the smell dissipates when applied onto the skin but i can understand how it can be offputting to some people. Keep in mind though that it won’t have a fancy smell as this is argan oil in its purest form. I use this as the last step of my routine to seal all my other products in, works like a charm! Very moisturising but a bit too heavy for me so I use it at night. It also takes a while to sink in.
OILS AINT OILSI use this and the other The Ordinary oils every night and my skin is glowing and clear.
I honestly cannot fault The Ordinary products. They are so effective and so well priced.
Affordable pure oilThe smell isn’t great but it’s good to know there aren’t any fragrances added. I would definitely recommend this for someone with sensitivities. A little goes a long way and I find it stays on the surface of my skin a bit but is great for my hair and much more affordable than other brands
Good oil bad scentThis is a really good versatile oil for the face and hair but it's got a rather nasty scent which is the only thing preventing me from giving it full stars
Nicei use this on my eyelashes and eyebrows and it has helped my eyelashes grow super long! its great value, get amongst it
scent is weirdi've really enjoyed other the ordinary products including oils but was disappointed by this. the scent is weird and i've used other argan oils and it doesn't smell anything like this one
Great productI bought this product to use on my face but I have found it to be the best hair oil. It can be used much like the moroccan oil products but without the strong fragrances and other unnecessary ingredients. I would highly recommend it to nourish hair after washing and reduce frizz. Just be careful not to use to much as it can make your hair oily.
Doesn't smell very niceMoroccan oil is a prized oil and this is a very affordable version. I'm not sure why it smells the way it does though, I've tried a few moroccan oils and this is one doesn't smell very pleasant to me
