LADY@LXG: The Miracle of Argan Oil

It is scary just how much ‘muck’ we slather onto our skin on a daily basis without giving it a second’s thought. What many of us don’t realize is that our skin is our largest organ, and what we apply on it, is absorbed directly in to our system, so if we apply carcinogenic products simply because they are cheap, freely available and smell nice, we are literally poisoning ourselves slowly but surely and that is truly a scary thought.

Products like deodorant, body washes, soaps, talcum powder, body lotion and sprays that we often take for granted, may not be as healthy or safe as we expect them to be.

Although more expensive, I like the fact that Kneipp products use natural ingredients and less preservatives than most. I also respect and value the fact that no animal testing is conducted on their range as I love animals and don’t agree that they should suffer for our vanity.
Kneipp® Natural Skincare Jasmine & Argan Oil 

Jasmine, also known as the “oil of romance”, has a strong floral scent. It has been used for centuries to promote total body relaxation and warm the emotions, because of its strong calming nature. 

Argan Oil It has been used for centuries by the women of Morocco who traditionally used it in the daily care of their skin and hair. Pressed from the nuts of the Moroccan Argan Tree, it is a rare and precious oil rich in vitamin E and unsaturated fatty acids and is highly nourishing for skin and hair.  

The Kneipp® Jasmine and Argan Oil range available in Singapore is the Body wash and the Body oil. 
This Body Wash is extremely moisturizing and protects skin from drying-out. I love the lotion like feel to it and the fact that although it does not lather, it keeps your skin feeling clean, hydrated and delicately scented. To me, it smells like shea butter and you can even go without lotion after using it as your skin really does feel softer and moisturized. This has now become one of my favourite body washes! 

The body wash retails at SGD 21.90 for a 200 ml tube. 
The Body Oil is not greasy or heavy and is best used after a shower or bath when you skin is still slightly damp. It smells lovely, just like the shower cream and because the scent is so light,it wont clash with your fragrance. I use the oil in the night so I am enveloped in its delicate scent and also so that my skin doesn’t dry out under the air conditioner, plus I like to smell good at all times, especially in bed :)

The bottle of oil retails at SGD 28.90 for a 100 ml glass bottle.

This range has the NATRUE-Label stamped on it. The NATRUE-seal allows you to easily identify high-quality natural skin care worldwide. 

It is not profit-oriented, but rather aims at one target: To strengthen the consumer’s trustfulness in true bio- and natural skin care. For more information on NATRUE and the NATRUE-seal, visit

  1. I have heard so much great things about argan oil and would love to try this product out. Since its by Kneipp, I am confident that it will be safe to use and good for my skin.

    I agree with you about many of us not thinking twice about what we put on our skin. Its quite scary when you think about how much poisons we apply daily without realizing it. Thanks Lady@LXG!

  2. I would love to be a lucky winner of the body oil. I believe it would help me to alleviate my stress and relax more. Life's happiest moments can be so brief, and it is so important to be relaxed and aware of the world around you, to view each day as the gift that it is.

    1. Hi Ginger, the oil is lovely. Its my newest must-have. I am sure you will love it and it will certainly keep your skin scented and hydrated!

      And I TOTALLY agree with your view on life!

    2. Hi Ginger, congratulations! You have been selected as a winner of this competition. In order to process your prize, please email us with the following details:


  3. I'd love to win the Body Wash because Jasmine's fragrance uplifts my spirits and argan oil will provide much needed hydration for my dry skin. Looking forward to happy shower times with Kneipp® Natural Skincare Jasmine & Argan Oil Body Wash! :-)

    1. Hi Sophia,

      I agree, shower time should be a time to relax and recharge before a day of work and after a whole day of stress!

  4. I like the moisturizing body wash as till now, I have yet to try any body wash that does not dry up the skin. Slathering on lots of moisturiser immediately after each shower is a daily routine as the skin becomes very dry after the shower. Sometimes, I am inclined not to shower, as I do not like the after-effect of dryness.

    1. Hi WS, I know what you mean! I hate it when my skin gets tight and dry but i can't live without showering at least 3 times a day (probably why my skin is dry :p)

      This wash is REALLY very nice. It does not dry the skin and is very gentle.

      I really think you will love it :)

  5. one day I was shopping at Guardian, a promoter came over and started persuading me to buy a bottle of the oil and she succeed! Not because she has the gift of tongue but because I've been reading so much about Kneipp from your blog and was convinced to try it. And no regrets :) Therefore, next thing I'd want to try would be their Body Wash and see if it is just as good :)


    1. Hi Grace, your comments made my day! :)

      I so LOVE their products very much and was just talking to the sponsor this afternoon about how much I love the Jasmine/Argan range.

      Good luck and fingers crossed

    2. I like the words "deeply relaxing" on the body oil. As I get older I find that time passes so fast. Everything is so stressful, and deadlines that are next week become tomorrow in an instant. This body oil can calm the senses besides moisturising the skin. It is anti-ageing for me too as it can destress my mind and thus slow down my accelerated ageing due to stress.


  6. After reading your review, hope to try it badly. I always has dry skin problem hope it can help to minimise the problem. With the smell of jasmine, I'm sure I will be able to have a sweet dream!

    Happy weekend!!
