Becoming a Goddess With Ancienne Ambiance

As many of my fellow beauty junkies will know, Argan Oil is one of the most precious oils in the world. Known as "liquid gold," it is renowned for its skin and hair nourishing properties, which care for even the most sensitive of skins.

Produced from the Argan nut, which only grows in Southwestern Morocco, there has been something of an Argan beauty revolution over the past few years. However, for so long I have resisted the Argan buzz since many products (yes, Moroccanoil, I'm looking at you!) are actually jam-packed with artificial ingredients, containing very little of the actual good stuff.

Of course, this all changed when I was sent some of the incredible Ancienne Ambiance Goddess Body Oil to review. Oh my word, am I in love with this stuff! Seriously, words fail me.

Well, almost...

Beloved by everyone, from Vogue and the Saudi Royals to our very favourite Beauty Shortlist, Ancienne Ambiance is a London-based brand specialising in luxury beauty and home products. Produced in the UK, all products use organic ingredients and fragrances inspired by ancient times - think glamorous Romans reclining in hot, steamy baths.

100% organic, the Goddess Oil is the most beautifully moisturising product I have ever had the pleasure to use on my body. Applied to damp, post-shower skin, it leaves my limbs super nourished and baby soft, while my entire body seems to glow with health.

Meanwhile, the subtle vanilla scent leaves you smelling good enough to eat, without the need for any perfume or fragrance on top.

Oh, and if that doesn't leave you desperate to try it, then this fantastic oil can also be used on the hair, or as an anti-ageing treat for the face too.

Argan Oil is naturally rich in Vitamin E and is full of antioxidants, all of which help to erase stretch marks and boost skin elasticity. It also contains Squalene, which is believed to protect against skin cancer. When massaged into the face, Goddess Oil somehow manages to be not-in-the-slightest bit greasy, yet it keeps my skin beautifully silky and soft.

And for those of you like me who have become hooked on the body oil, there are two new additions to the Goddess Body range to enjoy, a soap and a body wash - wahoo! I'm thinking that buying your mum, or your best friend, the Goddess Argan Oil gift set would leave you in their good books for life...
