Kahina™ Giving Beauty

Birchbox Breakdown

By now, you’ve probably heard of argan oil. But most people don’t realize that the buzzy ingredient has been a staple of Moroccan women for centuries—they use it to protect skin and hair against the fierce desert sun. For those of us who live in cooler climates, this 100 percent organic oil is no less of a lifesaver—it softens fine lines on our faces, adds suppleness to our strands, and protects against pollutants. You’ll be glad to know that Kahina™ gets its fair trade argan oil straight from the source: it’s sustainably produced by women’s cooperatives in Morocco using ancient harvesting techniques.

How it Works

High in nourishing omega acids and vitamin E, argan is a quick-absorbing hydrator with an impressive range of uses, from combating wrinkles to taming frizz. The purest of the pure, Kahina™’s premium organic version increases skin’s elasticity, deflects damaging free radicals, and helps repair hair damage. It also contains natural linoleic acid, a compound known to help skin and hair retain hydration.

How to Use

Don’t be afraid to get creative with this versatile oil. To use it as a face moisturizer, apply one to three drops (use more if you have a dry complexion) onto your clean face morning and night. You can also use it as a body oil, a hand treatment, or a shine-boosting hair serum.

Oil is good

I love oils for my skin and hair. I've tried several and like this one a lot. It does not have a heavy smell or feeling. It's a good product.

Everyone should use this

I love argan oil. I use to be in love with. Josie Maran until I found this product. I love that it is true true argan oil nit mixed with any fragrance or any other kind of oils. I use argan oil every night as a moisturizer and my skin is glowing in the morning. I even use it under my eyes as an eye cream. It has a million uses and I will never go without it.

Too watery

I'm a huge fan of argan oil, but not of this brand. The consistency isn't very nice, and the smell could be better. I'd recommend Moroccan Oil or Caudalie Divine Oil over this. (I'm sure there are other argan oils that are wonderful, but I've only experienced the ones listed.)

Magic in a bottle

Whether it is your hair, your face, or your nails, whatever body part you put argan oil on, you will be pleased with the results. Smooth, shiny, strong--you can have all that from one simple product.

Good for hair and cuticles, not for face.

I had read a lot of about argan oil and was very curious. I thought it was good to put on the ends of my hair and run along my cuticles. If I put some on my hands and then washed them a little later and I felt I had to reapply. It's a little too oily to put on your face if you have dry/blemish prone skin.

Miracle oil..

I've been using argan oil on my hair and cuticles for a while now, and sampled this brand. This stacks up to any other brand that you could find. It's very good quality oil...It helps keep your hair and skin soft and glowing...a little goes a long way though

Great for moisturizing

I've used this on my face and it works fantastic as a moisturizer. Works well overnight so it can soak in and you won't look greasy throughout the day ;)

I wanted to love this but...

after using this for two days, my face started breaking out. It makes the skin feel smooth and moisturized, but it did clog my pores and I now have several pimples on my face. Now off to see what birchbox has to fix that problem, sigh:(

Live by Argan Oil

I absolutely love Argan Oil and this brand is no different. I was skeptical to steer away from what I know (Josie Maran) but I wanted to use my birchbox points on something I would actually use. Points well spent! Argan oil does miracles for my skin: I almost never get break-outs since I started using it and my face always has a healthy, beautiful glow. I was never someone who invested in moisturizing because I thought it was useless, but Argan oil has proved me wrong. I have put it in my hair a few times, too, and the softness that follows is incredibly surprising. I literally could not recommend this product enough. If you are hesitant to buy it, find a way to sample it! You need this in your life!
