A little while ago, I was sent some treats from the lovely people at BUFF & BUTTER. I’ve always been a huge fan of using essential oils, and had recently jumped on board the Argan Oil train for my hair, so was keen to try more.
I was sent three pieces, two carrier oils, Organic Argan Oil, Rosehip Oil and a Witch Hazel. I’ll be first to say that I have fully been converted to Rosehip oil, I’d say it was my favourite of all the bits I tried.
Argan Oil: I had already been using Argan Oil as it seems to be in everything at the moment, I had only thought to use it on the ends of my hair, but it turns out it has endless uses, including, Nighttime Moisturizer, Skin Toner, Acne, Stretch Marks, Razor Bumps & Burn and Leave-In Conditioner & Styling. I would say if you have oily or combination skin this might not be the best for you. I have combination skin and although it didn’t break out my skin, no amount of washing made my face feel clean. So I’ll be sticking to using it as a hair and body treatment!
Rosehip Oil: This is my new favourite product, reaching for it over my usual Estee Lauder face oils. The smell is something to get use to, especially if you’re using it on your face, but let me tell you, it works wonders! After three days use my skin was completely balanced and looked more radiant. A tough task, as at the time I had been really suffering with a week long cold. It can also be used for, Wrinkles, Scars and Burns, Stretch Marks, Pigmentation, Dry and Sensitive Skin, Sun Damage and Acne and Acne Scarring.
Witch Hazel Distilled: The last thing I received brought on waves of nostalgia, and just reminded me of being a child at my Nanny D’s. As the accident prone sprog that I was, I was constantly bruising and scraping myself, and my nan swore by this and it always fixed it. I was really intrigued to learn what else you could use it for, which turns out to be, Spot and blemish control, Shrink bags under the eyes, Treat chicken pox blisters and Heal your bruises faster. I haven’t had a chance to really use this one, but I’m glad it’s going to be in my medicine cabinet for when I do.
So if I was to recommend anything to you, it would be to go and buy the Rosehip oil! And you can all thank me later.
