Some people may have picked up on the fact that I love a good hair product. I recently had the pleasure of trying so Agadir products. If you are not familiar with this company I can give you some background.  The company started with two brothers Paul and Archie Bogosia in the early 60’s. They gained expertise as hairdressers and salon owners with multiple salons across New York city and a diverse clientele. The brothers realized that the hair care products they were using and offering to their clients did not meet their performance expectations . So they developed their own high performance product line.  Agadir products have been talked about in Modernsalon.com, Juicy magazine, Hot magazine and a bunch other places everyone has great things to say about it so I decided I should defiantly try it and see what everyone is talking about.  A big plus about this brand for me is that they are a alcohol and cruelty free products. I am a big animal lover so cruelty free is very important to me.

I was really excited I got to try a wide range of their products. I will start off telling you about the Agadir Argan Oil Volumizing Shampoo. The shampoos is designed to give body and fullness to hair by infusing, essential ingredients with argan oil and panthenol. Enriched with antioxidants and vitamin E. The Agadir Argan Oil Daily Volumizing Conditioner system gives you body and fullness to hair and is also safe for color treated hair. I  enjoyed how both of these were scented. They use a Agadir aromatic complex that smells amazing.  Other benefits you might notice while using these products is that it will help with tangles and adds shine. The shampoo and conditioner made my hair feel soft and gave a lot of body to my curls. I usually don't use volumizing shampoo because I have a lot of hair. But I really liked the look and feel this gave my hair.

Recently they came out with the Agadir Argan Oil Styling Curl Crème that is formulated with antioxidant and anti-frizz agents. The argan oil base is what helps to block humidity and gives your hair long lasting crunch free curl protection. And I don’t know about you but I don’t like my Agadir styling sprayscurls crunchy. The crème will help moisturize, define curl patters and rejuvenate curls and waves.  Another crème they offer that is the Agadir Hair Shield 450 Intense Crème Treatment which actually works with the heat from the styling tool and activates the Shock Protein to help protect your hair from damage and it also targets damaged hair to repair, protect, and hydrate.  I love how amazing my hair feels after straightening it using this crème it feels salon soft even though I am way over due for a trim. This is a product I am happy to have on hand with winter coming I tend to blow dry my hair a lot more, and the protection is much needed.  Another way to give your hair that nice professional done look is the Agadir Spritz- Styling Finishing Spray. I love finishing sprays. This will help keep your hair in place and smooth away frizz and give you hours of shinny hair. If you are looking for more of a firm  and to add a little something else Agadir Argan Oil Volumizing Styling Mousse  this works to give your hair great volume body and hold while also controlling annoying frizz.

At the end of a long day at work then feeding the family getting everyone for bed I’m ready for some me time and to try my new body scrub! The soothing smells of this scrub are delightful, I appreciated the scents, it has a nice calming effect. The Sugar Body Scrub is infused with argan oil, other oils, and butters for hydration, as well as sugar for exfoliation. The scrub was easy to use I loved the little wooden scoop made it easy to get the perfect amount of scrub out. My skin has been in the need of a scrub since we have had such a long winter up here in Maine! I have to say I was amazed how soft and healthy my skin felt and looked after using the scrub, which is because Josie infuses argan oil into all of her formulas. This body scrub balm is a way to get the smooth and hydrated skin you deserve! If you are searching for a little get away on your few short minutes of relaxation and would like your skin to glow again I recommending trying this.

If you aren’t familiar with Crabtree and Evelyn here is a little background on the company. Meal Soaps were the first products to be launched under the Crabtree & Evelyn brand and these have evolved over the years into a range of Heritage soaps which are still available today. These conditioning and rich-lathering soaps feature unique fragrance combinations from Crabapple & Mulberry to Black Sea Mud & Seaweed. From here the product portfolio expanded to include English Flower Waters and Toilet Waters, Bath Gels and Men's Colognes. The use of natural ingredients continued with the introduction of preserves, biscuits, teas and confectionery and Crabtree & Evelyn became known for its gourmet products in beautiful, botanically inspired packaging.

Josie Maran organic argan oil hair body beauty certified fabulous

Its no secret I love Argan Oil! My hair is so dry and frizzy, and Argan Oil is so readily absorbed.  So when I received Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil Light, I was thrilled to slather it through my hair. That is, until Jessica informed me that this product is to be used on my FACE, haha!! After feeling like a complete fool (although it worked wonders in my hair as well, FYI), I tried on my face and was delighted with the results. You really only need to use the barest amount of product, and it absorbed readily leaving my skin soft and silky. On the bottle it is indicated for use for everything from “cuticles to split ends.” What I loved most of all is that this amazing oil is 100% Organic!!

This Oil is produced by Moroccan women's co-ops. In 2002, the Moroccan government helped establish female cooperatives to manufacture Argan Oil. These programs provide women of rural Morocco with a steady income, a fair wage, good working conditions, as well as literacy and other education classes. Perhaps most importantly, the co-ops give women a keen sense of empowerment in this traditionally male-dominated society. I love that Josie Maran supports such a wonderful co-op, providing women with the opportunity to better themselves. So cool.

josie maran argan creamy concealer crayon beauty makeup certified fabulous

I loved the100% Pure Argan Oil Light for my hair and skin, so I was excited to also try Josie Maran’s Concealer Crayon. I use concealer every day to cover up my yucky (inherited) dark under eye circles. I love that this product is in a large crayon shaped tool which made application a snap.  I love that this concealer contains Sea Fennel Extract which diminishes the appearance of wrinkles and lines and stimulates cellular renewal. The Buckwheat Seed Extract in this product decreased the look of skin puffiness. Josie Maran Concealer Crayon is creamy, blendable and luminous and comes self-sharpening in its twist up tube. This concealer doesn’t contain any parabens, sulfates or phthalates which is super important to me, especially when I am putting product on my face.  My only concern was I had to be very careful to no break the tip of this concealer crayon. The formula is so soft, silky and blendable, if youre not careful you could easily break the tip off of your crayon, meaning less wonderful product to enjoy, so be mindful, and enjoy!!

When your hair needs some help in the moisture department, what do you turn to? A cream, deep conditioner, mask, or maybe an oil? The natural texture of my hair is coarse and thick, so when I really need to add moisture, I turn to an oil. But not all oils are created equal. Some oils can leave my hair greasy for days, even after a couple of shampoos. I recently tried Balanced Guru's Razzle Dazzle Oil, and this oil is just what my hair needed! The key ingredients - Jojoba & Argan Oil - work to moisturize the scalp & hair without leaving a greasy/oil feel. The oil absorbed really well into my hair, and it did not feel as though it was weighing my hair down. A little goes a long way with this oil; I only needed to apply a few drops and then I was able to easily work that through my hair. My hair felt much more moisturized and the oil helped tame some of the coarse/frizzy pieces. It felt and looked nourished & hydrated. The pieces of my hair that normally look rough and dry, were smoothed together without looking oily! With sweet orange and geranium, this oil has a relaxing scent that I enjoyed using after the shower; a little aromatherapy after a long work day was much appreciated and it left my hair lightly perfumed! The oil also really helped when I went to straighten or curl my hair as it smoothed together well and felt moisturized and protected.
