BellaElla 12 Piece Argan Oil Set

Sunday, April 19, 2015
Argan oil has become such a popular product over the past year so when the lovely people at BellaElla asked if I wanted to try their *Complete 12 Piece Argan Oil Set (£39.99) I couldn't wait to try the products as I am a big fan of oils, particularly argan and moroccan oils. Firstly, I like the packaging, it is practical and simple although not the most attractive colour choice if I'm honest!

The first product I tried was the *Hand and Body Wash (300ml) which comes with a pump which is very handy. I've only used it as a hand wash and it is great! I love the scent, it smells fresh and fruity but it isn't too strong. It doesn't irritate my eczema and it also doesn't dry out my skin. Myself and my sister have been using it consistently and we both really like it; another product from the range that I have been using very frequently is the *Shower Cream (250ml). It has a similar scent, it is very pleasant and it lathers well although it is very runny so there is a lot of product waste unless you are careful. 

Sticking with the body care theme, the *Argan Oil Body Butter (250ml) has to be my favourite product from the range. The body butter smells different to some of the other products which is a little unusual as they are all in the same range. The body butter smells like baby powder which I personally really like as it is very fresh and clean smelling. The body butter absorbs fairly quickly and it leaves my skin hydrated and SO soft, I love it! 

Onto the haircare, I have the *Argan Oil Shampoo (250ml) and the *Argan Oil Conditioner (250ml) both of which smell fruity and fresh. The shampoo is a little thin/runny but both products work really well with my dry, frizz prone, thick hair although if I don't wash out the conditioner well enough, it can leave my hair a tiny bit greasy. The stand out hair product from this range for me is the *Hydrating Hair Mask (220ml); I love hair masks and treatments, I try to use them as often as I can as my hair is dry and also colour treated so it need more TLC. The mask, again smells really fresh an fruity, it applies so quickly and easy. I always apply hair masks/treatments to DRY hair as they are just more effective and I usually leave them on for at least one hour before washing my hair. The mask helps hydrate, tame frizz and smooth my hair - it isn't my favourite mask but it is effective and inexpensive. 

The last product in the haircare range is the *Heat Defence Leave In Spray (150ml) which I have to admit is a product I don't use very often as I don't use that much heat on my hair and when I do I usually forgot to apply heat defence sprays...oops! The product sprays fairly evenly, it is quick to use and it does't make my hair weighed down or greasy although as with all hair products if you use too much then it may do. Heat defense sprays are a bit of an unusual product as you usually can't tell if they are working.

As for the last four products, I personally haven't been able to use them so far because I had a massive and unexpected eczema flare up. So my sister has been testing out the *Cleansing Wipes which come in a pack of 30. She likes them as they are so quick and easy to use, they don't irritate her skin and they are great for on the go however they do dry out her skin. I haven't been able to test the *Night Repair Serum but my sister is currently trailing it - the benefits of having a beauty blogger as a sister! Last but not least, the *Hand and Foot Packs which are gloves and socks which contain a moisturising solution inside. You put on the gloves and socks then wait for 20 minutes, they sound fantastic and I think they would be great for travelling. My mum tried both and she loved the scent, they made her skin smooth and moisturised although she said they were very cooling, almost too much so but they would be amazing in the summer!

Overall, there are some fantastic products in this set such as the body butter (which I love) along with the hair mask and shampoo/conditioner - my sister has been using the shampoo/conditioner as well and she loves them. However the wipes and shower cream are a little bit of a miss sadly. On the whole I think it would be a great set for students moving away from home as it contains so many products and the set isn't too pricy, especially considering how many full size products you receive. I think it could also be great for new mums as a pamper pack. My sister still needs to test out the serum. I've tried the *Hair Treatment (100ml) and I really like it as it is smoothing and it comes in a pump bottle so it's quick/easy to use.


Have you tried any of these products or others from Bella Ella? What are your favourite pamper products?
