Thanks to the beauty blogger Britanie Faith for her wonderful review of our entire Zweena line! Below is a summary… her full review is at www.beautybybritanie.com

The beautiful and creative Jayme Barrett, author of Feng Shui Your Life, (a favorite book of mine) has always believed in helping people simplify and energize their spaces and lives. So it naturally follows that she would eventually discover a way to simplify women’s beauty routines. And I’m happy to say she has done just that for me. You may actually remember a post I did over a year ago dedicated to Zweena. This was before they changed their packaging and added new products into their line. I have to say, I didn’t think the packaging or products could get any better but they have. I am truly head over heels in love with this brand and every product in it.

Welcome to Zweena Body Care….

 

Pure Argan Oilcontains 100% Organic Argan Oil.

I use this multi-purpose oil everywhere: face, hair, and body. A little goes a long way. Argan oil glides on like silk and is full of natural vitamin E and essential fatty acids. I find it especially restorative and healing.

 

 

Argan Rose Rejuvenating Serum: contains 100 % Argan Oil, Organic Rosehip Seed Oil, Organic Evening Primrose Oil, Organic Pomegranate Seed Oil, and Moroccan Rose Damascena Oil.

In the morning I press a few drops on my face and then swipe in upwards strokes before I apply my makeup (it works as a wonderful primer!!) It feels so luxurious, sinks in fast, and the smell is “rose heaven” to me!

 

Argan Ultra-Nourish Eye Serum: contains 100% Organic Argan Oil, Marula Oil, Organic Baobab Oil, Organic Camellia Oil, Organic Rosehip Seed Oil, Fair-trade Melon Seed Oil, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Moroccan Rose Damascena Oil.

This is by far my favorite product in the line! Love the rollerball easy glide application. This has noticeably reduced the fine lines around my eyes (hello 30 next March!). I swipe it once across my undereye area in the a.m. and p.m. It’s rich in antioxidants and fatty acids as well as vitamin-rich botanicals. It feels so nurturing and protective. The best thing about this Eye serum? It completely got rid of milia underneath my eyes. You know those annoying little white bumps underneath the skin? I get those around my eye area from using products that have very dense and rich ingredients. I have never been able to get rid of them until this eye serum came along. I kid you not, within three days of using this serum, I noticed the bumps diminishing. It is a miracle worker.

 

Argan Rose Lustrous Hair Elixir contains: 100% Organic Argan Oil, Organic Mongongo Kernel Oil, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Organic Sweet Almond Oil, Organic Avocado Oil, Moroccan Rose Damascena Oil.

I love using this as a hair treatment two times a week. On dry hair I apply 4-5 pumps (I have very long hair). I start on my scalp and massage throughout even down to the ends. The Mongongo oil is full of linoleic & eleostearic acids, which are helpful for hydration and has nutritive and regenerative properties. I leave it in overnight and after shampooing the next day my hair feels so extra healthy. Bonus: my pillow smells extra good in the a.m.!

 

The anti-aging, healing, protective, and anti-oxidant packed benefits of these synergistic blends from Zweena are just so extraordinary. Each ingredient was specifically chosen by Jayme and Zouhir to moisturize, soften, increase cell turnover and protect from sun damage (Argan provides a degree of protection against UV sun rays due to the high level of anti-oxidants).

I’m so in love with the delicate richly layered scent of their Moroccan Rose Damascena oil. It’s nothing less than intoxicating. 

This beauty ritual is so comforting. Not to mention I’m getting a daily dose of my beloved aromatherapy! I just adore and love to support a business that was founded on love and has the desire as well as ability to make such a positive impact in so many peoples lives.

~My final thought: Absolutely “Zweena”!!

Kimberly Loc calls Zweena’s Argan Eye Serum “A Soon-to-be-Cult Favorite!”

By | Argan Oil, Argan Ultra-Nourish Eye Serum, Fair Trade Cooperatives, Reviews, Skin Care Products, The Beginnings of Zweena Body Care, Zweena News | No Comments

Thanks to Kimberly Loc for her awesome review of our Argan Ultra-Nourish Eye Serum! See a snippet of it below… for the full review, click here for KimberlyLoc.com!

Though most rollerball eye serums are a bit too heavy or messy for daytime use, I’ve found myself rolling on Zweena’s Argan Ultra-Nourish Eye Serum both morning and evening — and loving the non-greasy, rosy results.

Zweena’s gorgeous all-natural eye serum absorbs quickly — I can pat it into my skin, brush my teeth for two minutes, and then get to my morning makeup application.

I love how it nourishes my prone-to-flakiness undereye skin with its lightweight mixture of oils. My concealer glides on very easily after using this serum, yet doesn’t slip around or get creasy — my skin is perfectly prepped.

Zweena Argan Rose Serum on Ediblefacial.com

By | Argan Rose Rejuvenating Serum, Reviews, Skin Care Products | No Comments

The lovely Sarita Coren, beauty and wellness advocate behind the blog Ediblefacial.com, believes in “Peace on the Skin and Peace Within!” We agree and were thrilled to have her include Zweena Argan Rose Rejuvenating Serum in her post: 8 Divinely Delicious Ways to Use Roses in Skin Care. Below is an excerpt that includes her review of Zweena.

As one of the most beautiful flowers, roses offer some outstanding, beautifying properties. Specifically, roses can defend the skin against aging, balance redness, and lend an overall feeling of equanimity.

 

Zweena, which means “beautiful” in Moroccan, harnesses the anti-aging benefits of elegant Moroccan rose oil and combines it with hydrating argan oil, rosehip seed oil, pomegranate seed oil, and evening primrose oil for its intoxicating blend, Argan Rose Rejuvenating Serum, $58.

It boasts USDA Organic certification, as well as ECOCERT certification.

I love this company’s candid story (interestingly, there’s love involved!) and its attention to pure natural ingredients, sustainable harvesting, and support of women in fair-trade cooperatives. But it’s the addition of rose oil that really sets this product apart from other argan oil options.

 

Seed to Serum review of Zweena Pure Argan Oil & Argan Rose Serum

By | Argan Oil, Press, Reviews | No Comments

Thanks to Megan, the lovely lady behind the blog Seed to Serum, for her positive review of Zweena’s Pure Argan Oil and Argan Rose Serum! She was very impressed with the quality of our oils…read her review below. 

“I have a bit of a scent obsession with rose. There is just something about rose that is decadent and intoxicating – it seems to wrap your body in its floral warmth. So you can imagine my excitement when Zweena asked if I would like to sample their Argan Rose Rejuvenating Serum. A rose-scented face oil? Why yes, I would love to try that.

Though this serum smells lovely, what’s more impressive is the roster of reparative carrier oils – argan, rosehip, evening primrose. It has been awhile since I’ve used a face oil with argan as the main carrier oil. And to be honest, I missed it. Argan oil holds a special place in my heart – it was the oil that started my obsession. My proverbial gateway drug. But aside from nostalgia, I love argan oil because it is non-greasy and packs a nutrient punch. The high Vitamin E content reduces inflammation and repairs imperfections. Everything an acne prone girl looks for in a face oil.

And if you are interested in anti-aging benefits, you’ll love rosehip and evening primrose oils. Rosehip is packed with Vitamin A, which provides your skin with all the cell regenerating power of a retinol, without the nasty, drying side effects. And evening primrose is remarkably healing containing an extremely high concentration of Gamma Linolenic Acid. Trust me, these lovely oils are the answer to your sun damaged skin woes.

So how does this oil perform? I have been using it day and night and I love it equally for both. It is light, non-greasy, and beautiful under makeup (i.e. skin looks dewy, not shiny.) And even for someone as picky about moisture as I am, this oil was all I needed at night. Somehow without multiple layers of different moisturizers, my skin still looked hydrated and fresh in the morning. Look at me – embracing minimalism (well as close as I’ll ever come to it.)

And since I’ve gone on and on about argan oil, you might be curious about Zweena’s Pure Organic Argan Oil. The quality of this oil is exquisite  What do I mean by quality? I’m just going to go ahead and say it – cheap argan oil stinks. You don’t have to worry about that with Zweena. This oil has a faint, lovely smell and absorbs into skin like a dream!”

 

Zweena Argan Rose Face Serum is a Beauty Must-Have for “No More Dirty Looks!”

By | Argan Oil, Argan Rose Rejuvenating Serum, Press, Products, Reviews | No Comments

Green beauty expert, Alexandra Spunt, co-author and founder of the book and web site “No More Dirty Looks” included Zweena’s Argan Rose Rejuvenating Serum in her Winter Beauty Must-Haves! Read her lovely review below…

“You know how it goes. The temperature drops, the wind picks up, and all of a sudden you’re wishing you’d spent a little more time hydrating over the summer—and a little less time with a cocktail in your hand. Ah, winter. Even us Cali girls go through a version of it—not as bone-chillingly cold as the wet winters out east, but arid air does its own special damage. Anyone else feeling winter skin woes?

Alas, the only thing any of us can do is hydrate! Which is why I’m excited about this new product I’ve been using lately that help keep moisture in my skin.

Zweena Argan Rose Rejuvenating Face Serum

What happens when you take ethically sourced argan oil, a known favorite of ours, and add stress-busting rose? Zweena, that’s what! An awesome new line that I had the pleasure of discovering recently. Jayme Barrett, the company’s co-founder is a smart and lovely lady who discovered argan oil (and found her husband!) on a trip to Morocco. It’s a great story. A fellow author, she also wrote the popular book Feng Shui Your Life, and when we met she promised she’d contribute a piece to NMDL on the subject! (I don’t know about you guys, but I’m woefully ignorant about the Feng Shui. But this is the year I learn.) I’ve only tried the Argan Rose Rejuvenating Serum myself, and whether or not it’s really diminishing my wrinkles—rosehip seed oil is a popular anti-aging natural—it feels amazing, and the smell makes me happy. I like using it on my face, and keep it at work to give me little rose-scented pick-me-ups during the day. I also like putting a little on my split ends.”

Thanks Alexandra Spunt for your wonderful review! See full review here.

Review of Argan Rose Serum by Beauty Huile

By | Argan Rose Rejuvenating Serum, Press, Reviews, Skin Care Products | No Comments

Thanks to Nav Mundi, beauty oil expert and founder of BeautyHuile for her glowing review!

What is it: Only the most luscious Rose based Argan face serum ($58) to hit the senses and sink in speedily. Another Rose? No, not quite. Rather, enjoy the demure whiff of a memorably Moroccan Rose, which enthralls with its sweet tenderness that never ceases to end. Jarring at first, it never skews towards a screech in its unfold from what may have been the plushiest imaginable petals. Fully refined through and through. No other essence comes in betwixt your skin and the gentle touch of femininity of thiszweena* Rose.

Why it matters: Only a handful of Argan serums have earned the coveted USDA approval, which means the oil is pretty much good to eat. Skin food as some say, the eye-opening serum is a hearty cocktail of Argan (to rejuvenate), Rosehip (to promote cell turnover), Evening Primrose (to improve skin’s structure) and Pomegranate Seed (to improve tone) carriers. EcoCert is happy with the organically sourced oils (founder and author Jayme Barrett met with 15 co-ops before settling on the one that produced this Argan), so you should be, too. See instant results overnight with just a few drops of this lightly viscous serum, which when left overnight leaves skin buttery soft.

Why it impresses: Moroccan Rose. I was going to wax poetic about the merits of sourcing Argan from those famed fair trade co-ops, but some cool hunters beat me to the punch. Steam distilled from fresh petals and used since the 1600s for its incomparable effects to moisturize and soothe, Rosa Damascena is popularly known to treat fine lines, scarring, mottling and even…sexual frigidity? Um, I’ll take history’s word for this last one. I quite like using a dense Rose serum after steaming the pores open, exfoliating the week’s grime out of my pores and washing off a great mud mask. A well-done rose oil invariably freshens the new glow and ensures optimal moisture levels. This is important as we head into dry season and the chronic overuse of heaters.

The Final Word: A congenially delightful face serum to dovetail into anyone’s choice of night creams.

*Zweena, you ask? It means ‘beautiful’ in Morocco.
