Dry Winter Skin & Hair Remedy: Argan Oil

HELLO! For about a month, I've been following the whole argan oil craze... I've always been concerned with maintaining a healthy skin care, especially during the winter season. Argan Oil is moisturising enough to combat winter's driest skin conditions & is known for its cosmetic, nutritive and medicinal properties.
Argan oil is one of the rarest oil in the world, it grows from the Argan only grows on certain places and one of the most popular places to get the argan oil is Morocco.
I recently discovered a great argan oil based product from Josie Maran Argan Oil line...the Argan Oil Moisture Stick comes in a pretty looking rose gold travel-friendly tube and looks like a stick of lip balm. I purchased it from eBay for around £26 (also available at Saphora).... I know that's a lot of money for 0.21 ounce of product but my winter skin has been thanking me a lot for the hefty purchase.
Argan Oil Moisture Stick
The argan oil moisture stick has a warm citrusy smell, the product is infused with vitamin E, anti-aging ingredients that are rich in fatty acides and contain several oils including agran and apricot oils. The stick glides on smoothly and does not feel heavy or greasy on skin.
I've been using the argan oil moisture stick on my hair and face for 4 weeks and what I do is I will glide the agran oil stick on my hair ends when my hair is damp and then blow dry my hair, and on my face I use it every single night before going to bed. The Argan Oil Moisture Stick is organic, natural, multi purpose, recyclable, fragrance free, petrochemical free, paraban free and cruelty-free!! My skin is in love with the Argain Oil Moisture Stick and it's my favourite skin care product as of now!

I was so impressed by how well the Argan oil made my skin feel and look that I actually decided to hunt for argan oil based shampoos on eBay and then this shampoo from Amalia Beaute Paris cought my eyes...

I have been trialling this argan oil based shampoo for 2 week now and it has made my hair super soft and the frizz is gone. When I let my hair dry naturally its super shiny and manageable where as I used to have struggle before. There's a delicate herbal-like scent to the shampoo and it also lathers up quite well. Just for reference, I have thick Asian hair, very slightly wavy. It's not lacklustre, but not as shiny as I would like it to be either.
However this shampoo is not sulphate free which is a minus point as the suplhate based shampoos tend to be quite drying on hair and if used regularly you would feel the need to condition your hair afterwards using a good quality conditioner to overcome the dryness. Otherwise I've been pretty happy with the quality of this shampoo and I am definitely gonna continue using this shampoo once or twice a week.

Have you tried Argan Oil based products and what do you think about them?
