Personal Review: I love using Argan oil on my face at night. It does wonder for my face in the morning feeling hydrated, firm and rejuvenated. The one that I’m using at the moment is by Nature’s Republic in South Korea. It’s called Nature Republic Power Argan Oil Ampoule.The price is actually really affordable and still is from amazon.com. It was originally retailed at 19000 Won in Korea, which is approximately USD17. The current price on Amazon.com is going for USD15.39
Pimple rescue: I used it on my face when it breaks out in pimples and I noticed that the next morning, the pimple is calm and receding. The pain associated with the pimple also fades away.
