So, I'm kinda not feelin outfitted this year! Is it the fact that I have pretty much lived in pjs and yoga pants since Jan 1st? Perhaps. But it's also because that was last year's little project for myself, to photograph one outfit a week, and I did pretty good! Good enough for me.
So now, I'm ready for a new little photo project of sorts. I still want a way to share my favorite clothing and accessories with you tho, but I thought it could be more interesting to not just see a piece in an outfit, but also hear about where I got it, why I bought it and why I love it so much. And that way, I can talk about other favorite things too, like the home decor, art and beauty stuff that I own, and adore.
So with that, a new column is born- own+adore. And first up on the list to share?
Argan oil is like my little beauty secret. I have been telling all my real-life friends about it and now it's time to share it with you bloggy friends, too. I've been using it as a face moisturizer, instead of cream or lotion, since the fall and it has done a world of wonders for my skin.
I have naturally oily, acne-prone skin so believe me, the last thing I thought I should do was put more oil on it! But I read all about how it's great for skin like mine and decided to just try it.
I use just a few drops on my face after cleansing and my skin stays moisturized all day and get this- it's LESS oily! My face is clearer than it has possibly ever been in my life. I have no more clogged pores around my nose to obsess about. It seems to erase tiny lines and keeps my skin so soft and supple.
I swear, it's like a little vile of miracle juice, people. So much so that I've been adding a few drops to my shampoo and body lotion too lately.
Love love love it. I have the Josie Maran brand and would definitely recommend it, but you can find argan oil available from lots of different brands, big and small. And I know Palace sells some here locally.
Have you ever tried it? What did you think? Freaked to put oil on your face?
