review: argan republic white peony skin brightening serum

I had been following Argan Republic for a while now, so when Marissa — its owner — agreed to a collaboration, I was thrilled. I was sent one full-sized product and a couple of samples — thank you Marissa!

Argan Republic is a green beauty skincare line whose star ingredient is — you guessed it — argan oil. Using only the finest natural botanical oils, their cruelty-free products are free of petroleum, mineral oils, fillers, alcohol, parabens, sodium laurel sulfate, synthetic preservatives, and GMOs.

Says Marissa, the founder, “…green beauty is more than skin deep, it’s about a self-loving ritual that we each need to feel nurtured, confident and refreshed. Everyone needs blissful, peaceful moments in their day to indulge and recharge. All our products are crafted with love in small batches and infused with positive energy.” To read more, visit their website.

I received product from Argan Republic when my skin was being extremely temperamental. I was breaking out everywhere, and as such, pared down my routine to three products: a face wash, witch hazel toner, and Argan Republic’s white peony skin brightening serum.

Performance: This oil is light and absorbs quickly — perfect for the summer. It just take a couple of drops to moisturize my face. I have even used it on my hands and body for a little extra pampering. I adore the lovely, feminine peony petals in the glass bottle; it’s a sweet touch. The product is non-irritating for those of us with sensitive skin. As for its brightening properties, I have really, really stubborn hyperpigmentation, and while I haven’t seen miracle results (that expectation is a bit silly, isn’t it?), I will say that I’m beginning to see some lightening of dark spots. I’m going to be loyal to the product until the end of the bottle to see what results it produces!

Scent Profile: This product is unscented, and my sensitive skin loves that.

Packaging: Minimal clear glass bottle with gold and white dropper. I like that it’s lightweight and unobtrusive!

Ingredients (as listed on their website): *paeony(white peony root), *paeony(peony petals), *argania spinosa(argan oil), tocopherol(vitamin E). * = Clean ingredients – nongmo, wildcrafted, organic

Price: $42.00 USD (It’s now on sale for $35.00 USD!)

Disposal: Recyclable glass dropper bottle

Overall, I’m impressed this product’s soothing delivery of moisture and uncomplicated ingredient list. I find that my skin, overall, does much better with products that have a minimal amount of clean ingredients. I would absolutely recommend this product if you have sensitive skin! Have you tried Argan Republic before? I’m curious to try more products in this line. Do you have a favorite product that you would recommend?

Marissa was kind enough to share a coupon code, so if you’re interested in trying Argan Republic and getting 15% off of your purchase (excluding items in the lifestyle category), use code MOCHAMIN. Enjoy!
