Product Spotlight: Pure Argan Oil

So what is Argan Oil anyway? I’m sure you’ve heard of it. Every beauty blog an magazine talks about this stuff and how awesome it is so I wanted to share more about it with you.

Argan oil is pressed from the nut of the fruit of the Argan Tree, which is only found in Morocco. The argan tree lives to be about 150 to 200 years old and does not start producing the fruit until it is 30 to 50 years old. Because the tree is found only in a limited area, the oil itself is quite rare. To make argan oil, Moroccan workers—mostly women—peel the outer layer of the tree fruit then pound its inner nut with a rock to extract kernels, from which the oil is extracted. These women for the most part belong to various women’s co-ops supported by various organizations worldwide representing women’s rights.

Argan Oil is truly an all-purpose beauty tool. Argan oil is most effective as a moisturizer, toner, and topical treatment for general hair, skin, and nail problems. Argan oil in its purest form is highly effective. Therefore, it does not need other ingredients in order to keep its effectiveness and freshness. Pure and preservative-free Argan oil is best to use for your daily skin and hair regimen.

Cosmetics expert Marla Malcolm Beck, the CEO and co-founder of says “Argan oil has incredible conditioning and anti-aging properties that keep hair and skin revitalized, It’s great for dry skin, does not clog pores, helps minimize fine lines, and can treat split ends. Argan oil can help people with mild acne as the oleic acid found in the oil helps promote healthy levels of sebum production, and its linoleic acid helps prevent excess dead skin cells by promoting healthy skin turnover.”

While all of this is common to hear about Argan Oil, clinical testing of it is slim to none so it’s best to take a lot of things with a grain of salt and try it out for yourself. Everyone has different skin and hair needs but Argan Oil seems to really work for everyone that tries it.

Here are some things I love about Argan Oil after using it for myself (I’ve been using it for over a year now):

For My Hair:

  • Better Curl Definition
  • Less Noticeable Split Ends (Keep in mind there is no miracle cure for split ends besides a haircut.)
  • Less Frizz
  • More Shine

For My Nails:

  • Less Splitting
  • Healthier Cuticles

For My Skin:

  • Super Hydrated Without Feeling Oily
  • Healthier Glow

For My Face:

  • Less Acne
  • Fewer Breakouts
  • ZERO Dryness or Flakiness (which I have always struggled with)
  • Healthier Glow
  • Clearer Pores

Pure Argan Oil typically retails from $20-$100 per oz. Big name brands that sell it jumped on the Argan Oil Bandwagon and added huge mark ups. You won’t find that at Bathe Happy. Our Pure Argan Oil is $15 for 1 oz. and 27.50 for 2 oz. To compare you can check out Josie Maran who sells the same stuff at Sephora for $14 for just .5 oz., $48 for 1.7 oz., and $96 for 4 oz.

DIY Friday – Coffee Face Scrub

Yay its Friday! Once again I apologize for yesterday’s late post. I really hope you can take a minute to go check it out. We are all super excited about the new fragrances.  That means my baby sister will be here in just one week. I hope at least. I will know for sure later today if she’ll be here Friday the 26th or Saturday the 27th, either way I can’t wait! During her trip she’s requested that I make her some bath and body stuff so in honor of her trip I’d like to share one of the recipes we’ll be using.

We’ll be making Coffee Face Scrub. Whenever you use coffee in a scrub you skin will absorb the caffeine from it. When making coffee scrubs fresh ground coffee is best but you can use pre-ground. We do not recommend using instant coffee or decaf. Instant coffees can stain your skin and with decaf you won’t get the benefit of the skin awakening caffeine.

This scrub combines several ingredients that your skin will love.

DIY Coffee Scrub 1


  • 3 Tbsp. Ground Coffee
  • 1 ½ Tbsp. Granulated White Sugar
  • 1 ½ Tbsp. Brown Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. Honey
  • 2-4 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil


Mix the Coffee and both Sugars together in a small bowl or container. Slowly mix in the honey and combine well. Add the Extra Virgin Olive Oil 1 Tbsp. at a time until you get the consistency you want. Some people like their scrubs to be a little dry others like them to have a more paste like consistency. This is entirely personal preference.

How To Use:

After washing your face apply the scrub in small circles, avoiding the eyes. Massage in for 2-3 minutes and rinse off with warm water. You can use a wash cloth for this as well.

If you would like to make larger batches you can. Just change the tablespoon measurement to parts and keep the ratio. You can easily adjust this recipe as well to customize it for yourself. The Olive Oil can be replaced by any skin safe oils such as Coconut, Sweet Almond, or Argan. You can add or remove items and adjust the ratios of the dry ingredients as well.  Additives you could use are a few drops of an essential oil, oatmeal powder, milk powder, lemon juice, etc. The possibilities are endless.

I really hope you love this scrub as much as I do! Why not give it a try this weekend and pamper yourself? If you are not in the mood to DIY,  look out for this in Our Shop soon!
