No More Dirty Looks Review: Zweena Argan Eye Serum and Argan Rose Hair Elixir!

By | About Argan Oil, Argan Rose Lustrous Hair Elixir, Argan Rose Rejuvenating Serum, Argan Ultra-Nourish Eye Serum, Berber Women, Natural Hair Care, Reviews | No Comments

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?

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
 Thanks so much Nicolle and glad they’ve made it into your daily beauty routine!! You can find Nicolle on Instagram here!

Zweena Argan Eye Serum – A New Favorite for Megan at Seed to Serum!

By | Argan Ultra-Nourish Eye Serum, Press, Products, Reviews | No Comments

“A fantastic new launch from Zweena – the Argan Ultra-Nourish Eye Serum.

Not only is this serum filled to the brim with some of my absolute favorite oils (think argan, baobab, marula, and kalahari melon seed!), but it also comes packaged in the sleekest hot pink rollerball. 

Though I’m generally not to keen on eye products, I’ve recently started to notice the beginnings of dreaded milia. I’ve heard that the best way to attack the pesky little bumps is to moisturize them. I thought I had been moisturizing the area, but apparently not well enough. As luck would have it, a little bottle of Zweena Eye Serum fell into my lap. Within two days of using the serum, the milia had practically disappeared.”

Zweena definitely mixes a little bit of magic into this serum! It is the perfect combination of nourishing and lightweight. I highly recommend it!”

Travel & Beauty Writer Ajablue Recommends Zweena for Acne-Prone Skin

By | About Argan Oil, Argan Rose Rejuvenating Serum, Reviews, Skin Care Products, Testimonials, Travels to Morocco | No Comments

Travel and beauty writer, Ajablue, spent the summer in Morocco and brought Zweena Argan Rose Rejuvenating Serum with her! Typically, we recommend using the Pure Organic Argan Oil if you have acne-prone skin. Ajablue found that the Rose Serum really worked for her. She writes:

“The sun shines brightly in Morocco, particularly during the summer months. Sometimes the roads are dusty and I get tired….And a bit lazy with my beauty regime. As a result, my skin began to suffer about two weeks ago. I broke out. My face started to look haggard and dry, likely due to the Moroccan sun.

 

To get my body back on track, I pulled out a new favorite from my beauty case: Zweena Argan Rose Rejuvenating Face Serum.

Who is it good for?

  • This has been truly effective for me, a woman with sundamaged, acne-prone skin. I am glad I had this in my beauty bag while I’ve been traveling.
  • This would also be effective for women who are concerned with anti-aging.
  • It’s a soothing compliment for to use with other treatments because the ingrediants are so pure.

Application.

1. After washing my face in the evening, I first apply tea-tree oil with a Q-tip to my acne-prone areas in order to combat the pesky pimples that come with stress. Though the tea-tree oil is effective, I find it to be a bit harsh.

2. To sooth my skin after washing and treating, I apply 4 -5 drops of Zweena Argan Rose Rejuvenating Face Serum all over my face and neck. It absorbs quickly and my face immediately feels soothed and nourished, like I’m serving it food.

3. In the nighttime, I will apply a few extra drops, and wear Argan Rose Rejuvenatig Face Serum as a night cream. If it’s daytime, I can either go bare, or apply a little bit of SPF-infused concealer.

The Result.

“3 weeks of this routine has made my skin feel more resilient, more luminous, and healthy. I look more awake.” 

I think the Argan Rose Rejuvenating Face Serum is superior to a standard case of argan oil because of the added benefit of the rose and pomegranate oils.”

Edible Facial Review – Zweena’s Two Luscious Rose-Infused Products!

By | Argan Oil, Argan Rose Lustrous Hair Elixir, Argan Ultra-Nourish Eye Serum, Natural Hair Care, Products, Reviews | No Comments

Thanks to Sarita Coren of EdibleFacial.com for her enthusiastic review of our new Eye Serum and Hair Elixir below!

 

If you are a lover of roses, then you are going to want every single product that ZWEENA Argan Beauty offers. The line’s signature ingredient is organic argan oil, known for its wrinkle-reducing, frizz-taming, and skin-balancing powers. It’s no wonder that multi-tasking argan oil has become ubiquitous in the beauty world.

“But what takes ZWEENA over the top gorgeous is the infusion of Rose Damascena Oil, extracted from thousands of roses. Take one whiff of these simple, yet well-formulated products and you immerse in the heady scent. And let me tell you, not every product captures roses like these do.”

According to Jayme Barrettco-founder of Zweena Argan Beauty, the source of the rose oil makes a world of difference. It is hydrodistilled at low temperatures from thousands of freshly picked roses grown in the Valley of the Roses, a place located between the Sahara Desert and the Atlas Mountains.

Argan Ultra-Nourish Eye Serum

I found that one drop alone covers my eye area. The full-sized product comes with a roll-on applicator for easy use and no spillage. When it comes to ingredients, this serum merges some heavy-hitters to nab fine lines, boost elasticity and collagen, and fight free-radicals.

Marula, Baobab, and Kalahari Melon Seed oils fuse together some of the top anti-aging ingredients around. Camellia and Rosehip Seed oils, personal favorites, enhance collagen production and wrinkle reduction, while Meadowfoam Seed oil locks in moisture.

“Once again, the real treasure for me is the fragrance. I want to breathe it in all day and happily indulge in those fleeting moments of application and inhalation. “

Rose oil contains over 300 compounds that nourish the skin, reduce redness and inflammation, as well as treat it with regenerating, repairing, and hydrating properties.

Argan Rose Lustrous Hair Elixir

The hair elixir also incorporates argan oil and the most incredible scent (something I really love in a hair product). It comes in a pump bottle to dispense the right amount, which for me is one small drop massaged into my palms and then worked into the ends of my tresses. (Oh, if only I had tresses!)

My hair is not particularly frizzy but can get weighed down easily. Usually I’m wary of using oils in it, though a nighttime leave-in oil treatment does wonders every few weeks.

“That said, one drop when my hair is damp or wet allows this product to work its magic too. It feeds my hair to protect it before blow drying, tames flyaways, and lends an overall healthy luster without being heavy.”

Regarding the ingredients – nothing skimpy here. Mongongo oil moisturizes and protects hair. Meadowfoam Seed oil adds shine and locks in the moisture. Organic Sweet Almond oil softens hair and repairs split ends. Organic Avocado oil nourishes the scalp and promotes hair growth, while Moroccan Rose oil soothes, hydrates and infuses hair with its delicate aroma.

These products definitely standout as exceptional for me.

The Green Product Junkie Loves Zweena’s Eye Serum & Hair Elixir!

By | Argan Rose Lustrous Hair Elixir, Argan Ultra-Nourish Eye Serum, Natural Hair Care, Reviews | No Comments

Thanks to Katie at The Green Product Junkie for her glowing review below! So glad you loved our new offerings…

“It’s no secret that I absolutely LOVE rose.  The scent of it just makes me so completely happy and intoxicates me.

Imagine how psyched I was to try Zweena’s new eye & hair products!”

Argan Ultra-Nourish Eye Serum

Oh, how I want a full bottle of  Zweena’s eye serum!  Every time that I’ve used this on my eyes, I’ve held my fingers up to my nose after applying it, just to smell it.  I ADORE using this.  I’m a huge fan of eye serums and I’m loving this one’s ingredients, feel and performance.  Quick-drying (making it excellent for under makeup), this serum also comes in a rollerball (if you haven’t used one before, they are so convenient for application and feel refreshing!). $64

Argan Rose Lustrous Hair Elixir

Again, I love the smell of this rose-scented hair elixir.  When I have time and I know I’m not going to be running out anywhere, I love to rub some of this on my hair (ends only as my hair is only dry on the bottom) for a few hours and then wash it out.  It’s also perfect for fly-aways or you can also use it as a serious hair treatment by rubbing it on scalp and hair and leaving it on overnight or for as long as you wish.   Perfect for restoring shine, preventing heat damage, moisturizing the scalp, taming frizzy hair and protecting your hair from harmful sun rays.  $48

Zweena Review from Run On Organic!

By | Argan Oil, Argan Rose Rejuvenating Serum, Press, Reviews | 2 Comments

 

An active, organic & healthy way of living is what Jesica Cockerham, the lovely blogger behind Run On Organic, shares with her readers. After using Zweena Argan Elixirs, she writes:

I have always heard of Argan oil, but had yet to try it. The best way to try something is in its pure form so, enter: Zweena. Using this oil on my face appears to treat all of the problems you could have with your skin. For me, it’s mostly redness, blemishes and dry skin (around lips and nose) in the winter months. I find it to be everything it promises to be. It is entirely organic and effective–what more could you ask for in a facial oil? I have been pleased with this oil. I apply it to my face right after washing–using the droplets of water still on my face to spread the oil on evenly and easily. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a purely organic product to apply to their skin.

Thanks to Jesica for reaching out to us to try our products! Read her full review here.

 

Zweena Argan Rose Serum Review – The Green Product Junkie!

By | Argan Rose Rejuvenating Serum, Press, Products, Reviews, The Zweena Story | No Comments

Like rose? Yeah, me too. Zweena Argan Rose Rejuvenating Serum is hydrating and smells so great, I keep re-applying…ahhh! 

(by the beautiful Katie at The Green Product Junkie!)

You know you love a product when you keep re-applying it even when you don’t need to. I’ve tried one other rose oil-infused face oil, but I found the scent to be far too over-powering. I love the scent of rose, but in small, pretty doses. Zweena’s is just that.

First off, “Zweena” means beautiful in Morocco. Jayme Barrett, founder of Zweena has a cute story of how her company came to be.

While visiting a friend in Morocco, Jayme met her future husband on her third day in the country (sounds like a Jennifer Aniston or Julia Roberts movie, no?)  Not long after, her hubby-to-be gave her a bottle of argan oil as a gift and the rest is history.

So, as Jayme fell in love with both her man and the “liquid gold” oil, she soon made the decision to bring pure organic argan oil over to the United States.

 

I’ve tried many argan oil blends, but this is, by far, my favorite.  The subtle scent of rose, the way it blends and absorbs quickly into the skin and the hydration it gives is superior.  I also find that at $58, it’s a great price.

The Argan Rose Rejuvenating Serum is high in antioxidants, essential fatty acids and vitamin-rich botanicals.  It’s also 100% organic and chemical-free sourced directly from a fair-trade cooperative in Morocco.

Just as an FYI:  Jayme had given me a 2-week supply of the oil and I have to say that it’s one of only a handful of products that I’ve received to test that I’ve completely used the entire product…that’s saying a lot!

Ingredients: Argania Spinosa Kernel (Argan) Oil, ** Rosa Canina (Rosehip Seed) Fruit Oil,* Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil,* Punica Granatum, (Pomegranate) Seed Oil,* Moroccan Rosa Damascena (Rose) Flower Oil

*USDA Certified Organic ,**ECOCERT Certified Organic
