Tavarua Skin Calming Argan Serum - Review

I am here with another Tavarua skin product review!

I've been testing this out for quite a while, a few months actually, I wanted to give you an accurate review.

The Calming Argan Serum retails for $18 and is a pretty big size! I'm not sure how much in ounces it is because it does not state it on the website or on the bottle itself.  This product is made in the USA, is 100% sustainable and cruelty free.

I love the simplicity of the glass container that it is in. It has just the right amount of information and the logo and name is just the right size. I love that there is also a space down the side where you can see how much you have left! That is always a plus in my book! I hate when you run out of product and you didn't even know you were low on it! Anyways, this application method is by roller ball. I really do like that, it gives a nice cooling effect when you apply it to the skin. You do however need to be careful to make sure that it stays standing up or it may potentially leak, I learned this from experience. Its not a problem though, barely any leaks out but it gets caught on the side of the roller ball, the cap goes on tightly enough that it doesn't get everywhere.

This does take a bit of time to sink into the skin, which is okay because I know that it is working. I mostly apply this to a scar that I have from when I was washing dishes and the glass broke. (long story, don't ask) I find that it is very nourishing to the scar, it doesn't feel as tight or dry when I use this, which I am really loving.  The one thing I am absolutely loving about this product is the fact that it FADED part of the scar! I was amazed when I noticed that a good portion of my scar was faded. A little of this goes a LOOOOONG way, no lie. I've applied this to my scar, cuticles, and my lips.

On the back of the label it says you can apply this around your eyes, lips, on your laugh lines, and wrinkles, extreme dry skin, scars or anywhere your skin needs that extra nourishment. Although it did feel a bit funky on my lips (its a me thing), I really felt that my lips got that extra nourishment they needed from being dry and neglected for a couple of days.  It says to keep in a cool and dark place for the best results. All  I have to say is oops. I've not kept it in the darkest of places. Its been out of sunlight but its not been in a dark place, as for a cool place. I live in Florida and its never really cool here, even in the Winter and we don't like to keep the air on because it shoots the electric bill up. I've not noticed and different results because of it, I think that it still works pretty amazingly.

This is what Tavarua's website says/describes this product as :
A delightful Argan Oil Serum with a hint of Japanese Yuzu Essential Oil. We use only Eco-Certified Organic Argan Oil, direct from a women's cooperative in Morocco.

This Argan Oil blend has Japanese Yuzu, which is known for its calming properties. Argan Oil on its own is extremely nourishing, with more Vitamin E than almost any other oil. Combined with the Yuzu it is an extremely calming and nourishing application for stressed, tired skin. Use to nourish the sensitive eye area, around lips, and after sun exposure. Apply to temples to enjoy the calming nature of the Japanese Yuzu. Roll over areas to be treated as many times a day as you like. Absorbs quickly with no greasy residue.

You can tell when my scar becomes stressed because it turns BRIGHT red, so I will apply some of this and it helps to calm it down to where it looks semi-normal.  I've not used this on my face, other then my lips because my skin is funky and would probably go crazy if I did happen to use it on my face. There is no greasy residue either, which I like. You can rub it gently into the skin or just let it slowly sink it, but if you choose that option just be careful. I've had it transfer onto the keyboard on my laptop and on my clothes. It doesn't stain or anything like that, its just more annoying then anything haha. Other than that, there is no other issues. I would suggest rubbing it in though. :) But that is just how I like to do you, you could be different. Everyone is! <3

On a side note, I do want to thank Stephanie, who is the owner of Tavarua for sending me these two products to try. They were absolutely amazing! I am forever grateful that you let me try your products out! <3
