Bargain Argan Essentials - Avon & Primark

Avon Advance Techniques 360 Nourishment Moroccan Argan Oil Leave In Treatment (what a mouthful)
was £5.50 on sale for £3.30 at the moment!
Primark Hair Essentials Argan Oil conditioner - £2.50
I'm awfully late to jump on to the Argan Oil trend blog wise. I've never quite found my perfect product until I hit a double whammy and found two in one day. 

I was quite happily browsing in Primark after sitting my theory test and found this conditioner (with matching shampoo but I decided to leave it) and quickly snapped up a bottle. I've tried another Argan conditioner from Home Bargains which was 79p but I felt the bottle ran out insanely quickly so wasn't great value for money. I didn't have very high hopes for this conditioner but I was quite pleasantly surprised! When using it I felt it made my hair too clean feeling (if that's possible) and somewhat... squeaky? But after I dried it I couldn't believe how soft my hair felt! I like to alternate my shampoo and conditioners a lot but I think this will definitely become a permanent fixture in the line up.

When I went home later that day it turned out my mum had bought me the Avon hair oil which we had been talking about a while ago which I was pretty excited to use. I'm not a massive fan of hair oils and thought this one would be no different however it broke the mould for me. When I first used it I think I used waaaay too much so it left my hair feeling quite greasy, however the next day I used a lot less and it made a major difference. It really tames my frizz and has definitely helped with my dry ends. My hair feels a lot shinier and very healthy - plus this little oil smells so nice which can't hurt. My only issue with it is that I feel like it's tamed my hair a little bit too much, I like my hair quite curly with a lot of volume so I've just been using this on the ends of my hair and it's eradicated that problem. I doubt it would be a problem for anyone else!

What are your hair care essentials? Are you a fan of these Argan products?



  1. ooooh my avon is already £10 over my limit haha, so next time i think i will get some, keep looking at them but wondering if they will actually work

    1. I was the same but I really do love this one x

  2. I'm a fan of Argan oils. I've tried Moroccan Oil which is fab but so expensive. I've found the Avon oil pretty good, also the Caudalie Divine oil is good too and much more purse friendly! Now following.

    1. The price always put me off of Moroccan Oil but I've found some pretty good bargain products to tide me over! Thank you so much :)x

  3. I've never used the Primark stuff but I love the Avon hair oil. My mum uses it on like half of her customers x

    1. It was a pretty good find! That's always comforting to hear haha, I'm really impressed with it x

  4. I hope I can find the Avon Moroccan Argan Oil here in the Philippines coz I`ve never heard it before. Nice post and thank you! :)

  5. I've never used a product like that from Primark, I will be buying it to tie me over until I buy Moroccan Oil, Great post!x

  6. I saw the Primark Argan shampoo and conditioner the other day and I was SO tempted to but I stupidly didn't cause I wasn't sure if it would be any good. Instead my dad bought me some Argan Oil conditioner from Body Care which I'm yet to use!
    I also tried the oil once from a friend and I too used way too much and it feels minging doesn't it! :')
