In the beauty industry, argan oil is the Cadillac of beauty products. It has an amazing reputation for moisturizing everything from cuticles to split ends and everything in between. It’s rich in Vitamin E, Vitamin A, Vitamin B1 and Vitamin F—an all-rockstar combination of skin replenishing vitamins that help repair, protect, and hydrate.
The difficult thing about argan oil is finding a reputable product. Like a Cadillac, it fetches a pretty price. Unfortunately, because of that, many companies sell products that are solely listed as “argan oil” but once you read the label, you find tons of other additives and fillers. Four Truffles Daily Moisturizer Argan Oil Serum is just that—argan oil. Well, that and a touch of lavender…but no fillers, I promise!
We’ve had a mild winter here in the Midwest, but my skin is still on schedule to become parched and dry during this time of year. Like clockwork, my face took a sharp turn to Dry City. After just a few applications of this stuff, I saw a noticeable difference in my skin’s moisture content. My face felt smoother and those fine lines started getting finer. It’s like my skin took a big sip from the fountain of youth. The hint of lavender in the product gave me a refreshing feeling, but it is there for more than just aromatherapy reasons—it can also help diminish acne and oily skin.
Bottom Line: Besides being an amazingly simple product from which you will reap loads of benefits, Four Truffles is one of the coolest companies I’ve come across lately. They are a woman-owned, woman-operated company and they’re committed to sourcing their products from female-operated co-ops in Morocco. Their goal is to ‘do right’ and ‘do good’ in every aspect of their business. That also means using organic products, and ensuring that all of their products are 100% vegetarian, not tested on animals, paraben-free and hypoallergenic. Those are four GIANT high-fives in my book. Which means 5 giant stars in my beauty book.
