We are thrilled that Nicolle Mackinnon over at the No More Dirty Looks shared her love for Zweena’s Argan Eye Serum and Zweena Argan Rose Hair Elixir! A while ago, founder Alexandra Spunt reviewed our Argan Rose Rejuvenating Face Serum and wrote “it feels amazing, and the smell makes me happy!” No More Dirty Looks is so well-respected in the green beauty arena so we’re delighted they’ve embraced Zweena. Below is Nicolle’s review!
When it comes to beauty products that makes it on my “buy again” list, the background story of the brand is sometimes as much of a factor as the scent, the way it works and its effectiveness. Zweena Body Care is one of those brands—founder Jayme Barrett met and fell in love with her now husband on a trip to Morocco, where she also discovered the power of argan oil (which you know NMDLers love). Together, they’ve worked with fair-trade Moroccan co-ops and Berber women to bring that argan oil to the United States. Cute, right?
- Argan Rose Lustrous Hair Elixir: If I had to pick a favorite, it would be this haircare powerhouse. Like I said, I can’t resist anything that smells like roses (and I love treatments for my tresses), so it was easy to convince me to test out this hair oil. What I’ve come to love about it is its multipurpose nature. With cold-pressed argan oil, meadowfoam seed oil, sweet almond oil and avocado oil, the Hair Elixir has come in handy as my already-dry hair has battled against the Minnesota winter. I use it most frequently as a leave-in treatment on my damp hair—one pump distributed on my ends helps keep fuzziness away and moisturizes the driest part of my hair. But it also works great as an overnight deep conditioning treatment, which I do once a week, and have seen a noticeable difference in my hair’s softness and shine. Plus, you guys, it makes me so happy to inhale that rose scent. It’s like hair perfume and it lightly sticks around all day.
- Argan Ultra-Nourish Eye Serum: I have to say it took me a while to get around to trying this one, not because I wasn’t excited about it, but because I’ve been too in love with my ED4OLO Eye Balm to test anything else. But then I got this persistent, dry, flaking, itchy patch of skin on my eyelid that none of my products could touch. On a whim, I rolled on this silky eye serum as a last-ditch effort. Nearly overnight, the irritated flakiness disappeared. I still don’t believe it because I’d had the dryness for so long. I credit the argan oil and the marula oil in Zweena’s formulation, both of which have crazy healing properties and are natural fighters of harsh, dry weather conditions (I think -20 degrees counts are harsh, right?). Camellia oil, which softens skin, and baobab oil, which promotes wound healing, swooped in for the assist as well. Now I’ve got my husband (who kind of hates any oil as a moisturizer) using this serum on his under eyes. That’s what I’d call a win.
