Ro's Argan Body Conditioner
Advantages: Incredibly hydrating and leaves the skin feeling much softer and smoother
Disadvantages: Can make you feel a bit greasy and it is a bit expensive
I love Lush and the fact that there are so many natural ingredients in their products. I love body butters and I have used Argan Oil in my hair before so I was more than a little excited about trying the Ro's Argan Body Conditioner.
What does the product do?
The product is essentially an intensive body moisturiser which promises to leave the skin feeling softer and smoother. One of the key ingredients, hence the name of the product, is Argan Oil. This is included because of it's anti aging qualities and it feeds the skin with Vitamin E and essential fatty acids. It contains Cocoa butter and Shea butter to hydrate the skin deeply and to nourish it leaving it in a better condition. It contains both Brazil nut oil and Almond oil to moisturise the skin and to nourish it with Vitamin E which helps to keep the skin looking youthful. There is also some Goji berry included which a superfood and should help to remove toxins from the skin. It is fragranced with a rose aroma which will apparently leave your smelling like a rose bush!
How do you use the product?
The product is applied in a way that I haven't experienced before. You are directed to use the product in the same way as you would use a hair conditioner. After cleansing the body, you are supposed to apply the product generously to your wet skin and massage the product into the skin. You then need to rinse off the product again and then pat the skin dry.
Packaging and Price
The product comes contained within the typical black pot that you would expect from Lush. It is plain other than some white writing which gives more information about the product. The product doesn't come cheap and it will cost around £15 for 225 grams. It can be bought from your local Lush store or from their online websites.
Application and Performance
The product has a very strong aroma to it. It smells like roses and if I had sniffed it before I probably wouldn't have bought it because it's not the type of aroma I would normally go for. It's so potent that it's not one that you can really get away from too. It has a thick consistency almost like a cross because a butter and a paste, and it has a few gritty bits in it. The packaging makes it easy to access the product so they'll be no wastage which is a very good thing when you consider the price. I have used it after showering.
I apply it to my body and massage it into my skin and then leave it on for a few minutes just like I would with a conditioner. As the product is so fragranced, I wondered if it would irritate my skin but it didn't cause to experience any itching or discomfort. I then turn the water back on and rinse off the product. It comes off quite easily and it doesn't take long before it's all gone. Once the skin is dry, the body does feel extremely hydrated to the point where it does feel a little bit greasy and waxy. I think it must be because of all the oils included within the product.
It does make my skin look well conditioned and it removes a lot of the dryness that I sometimes experience. My skin feels healthier right from the very first application and the effects last for days. I therefore use this as an intensive treatment once a week partly because of the price and partly because it has long lasting results. I think this would be a good one to use after sunbathing because the hydration is so intense. The rose aroma lasts on the skin too so you will have to make sure you like it.
All in all, this is a strange product but it does work. It is so hydrating and it leaves the skin feeling extremely soft and smooth. It removes all signs of dryness and feeling of tightness, leaving the skin looking and feeling in a better condition for a few days. It does leave you feeling slightly greasy for a while and it does smells strongly of roses. It is also expensive for such as small pot. Other than these things however, it is a good product and I will definitely be using it as an after sun product during my next holiday.
