Lovers of facial oils rejoice! Australian hair care brand Seven Wonders have released a Moroccan argan oil product for your face. And it is lovely. If you’re put off by the smell of some facial oils (stinky rose hip oil, I’m looking at you) you might just fall in love with this one, as it smells like roses. The product remains 100% natural though, with the rose scent coming from a natural rose essential oil. I use facial oils at night because I find no matter how non-greasy they claim to be they never seem to sink into my skin enough for me to be able to use them during the day without looking like I’ve rubbed butter on my face before leaving the house. The Seven Wonders argan oil skin Serum is probably one of the lightest facial oils that I’ve tried and it did sink into my skin quite quickly, but unless you have very dry skin I wouldn’t recommend using this during the day unless you like super glowy skin. I used this oil every other night for two weeks and found that my skin looked radiant and felt soft every morning. The oil didn’t block my pores to cause breakouts or have any other negative effects on my sensitive skin. The Seven Wonders Moroccan Argan Oil retails for $24.95 AUD and is available for purchase from selected pharmacies throughout Australia. Please check the Seven Wonders website for your local stockist details. (note: this product was sent for consideration for review)
Once again I find myself with very few items on my “I NEED THIS OR I WILL DIE” list this month, but of course I was able to rustle up four items that I would certainly be more than happy to own. These are –
01: MAC Blot Powder – For some reason I have been really curious about this lately. I’ve heard great things about MAC’s blot powder and now I’m curious to try it for myself. 02: Seven Wonders Detangling Moisture Spray – My hair has been a knotted wreck lately, and I don’t know why. I don’t have 1 detangling spray in my repetoire and as I am loving the rest of the Seven Wonders range I figured I might as well give their detangling spray a shot!
03: Biotherm White D-Tox BB Cream – I have been trying this out after being sent a small sample by Adore Beauty and I have to say, it’s amazing. I can’t wait to buy a full sized tube for myself. 04: Ultraceuticals Even Skintone Serum – I ran out of this over the weekend and nearly wept. It’s one of my holy grail skin care items and I have a hard time living without it! Must. Replace. Immediately.
Allow me to introduce you all to my most reached for hair product of the moment, the Seven Wonders Moroccan Treatment Oil. Unless you’ve been living in an argan-oil-is-awesome free zone, you would have heard of Moroccanoil, which has now hit cult status in the beauty world. I was really curious when I first received the Seven Wonders products to see how they would stand up against the infamous Moroccanoil range. So far I have not been disappointed. I decided to start trialling the Treatment Oil first, and plan to post my reviews of the shampoo & conditioner at a later date. Now, to the oil. First of all I find the smell of the Seven Wonders oil to be a lot more pleasant than Moroccanoil. It’s a fresh, almost floral scent that doesn’t linger for too long on the hair, but smells lovely while applying the product. The results are pretty much everything you want from a Moroccan hair oil – soft, silky and shiny. I couldn’t stop touching my hair after first trying this product out, it was so silky. (This became quite obsessive and unnecessary after a while, but whatevs. Silky hair is the cat’s pyjamas.) Lastly, one of the biggest perks about the Seven Wonders oil is the packaging. The bottle comes with an easy to use pump top which is far easier to manage with slippery oil covered hands than the screw top bottle, let me tell you. The Seven Wonders products are also sulphate and paraben free, bonus points for that. The Seven Wonders Moroccan Treatment Oil retails for $34.95 AUD and can be purchased from health food stores and pharmacies nation wide, and you can find your local stockist on the Seven Wonders website.
