Review: Argan Oil and Rosehip Oil by Nouris

"Oils" have been all the hype lately, apparently. And I now understand why. I was recently sent a bottle of pure argan oil and a bottle of pure rosehip oil by an company called Nouris to review. Here are my thoughts.

Nouris Argan Oil
RRP: BPS10.49 for 50mL
Packaging: 5 out of 5
Review: I've never tried argan oil before. I had always assumed that you use it like any other hair oil: work it into your hair, after washing, when it's dry/semi-dry. The directions surprised me. It says to apply it to hair 30 minutes prior to washing. I obediently followed the instructions. My hair looks greasy once all my strands are coated. While waiting, I'd read a book, eat my breakfast, etc. I then wash it off with my John Frieda shampoo and conditioner. After that my hair felt AMAZING! It became extra soft and smooth. This is by far the best hair oil I've tried. I've been using it for a few weeks now and I love it. I don't know if it's because it's a good combination of products. I will post an update if and when I test this oil with other shampoos and conditioners. Here's a tip if you decide to buy this product and use: brush your hair after applying it to your hair and before you have to hop into the shower.

Nouris Rosehip Oil
RRP: BPS11.50 for 50mL
Packaging: 5 out of 5
Review: I have tried rosehip oil before and this product did not disappoint. It very moisturises my face without making me oily. Although, the initial application might feel a tiny bit greasy but it absorbs quite quickly. And you won't feel like your pores are clogged up at all. This is an excellent product for oil control. So if you have an oily T-zone (like me) or an oily skin in general, do give this a try. It has worked wonders for many, including myself.

To finish off this review, I'd like to point out that these products come in glass bottles. So a huge tick of approval from me! They also come with a simple good quality plastic pump, which is hygienic and easy to use. And lastly, they are not chock full of parfum/fragrance, which sends me sneezing the whole day.

If you're interested in purchasing these products, you can get them from here.

Have you tried these oils before? What's your favourite oil product?


  1. Ohhh I still haven't tried Argan oil yet! But I do love my rosehip oil! I think it's so versatile - there are so many things you can use it for. I particularly love putting a little underneath a sheet face mask. Thanks for the review!
