Courtney's Favorite: Moisturizers

(Note: Life is going to be crazy for us for the next few weeks as we move from one house to the next & get settled. I will definitely try to blog too, but if you don't hear much from me, that's why!)

So, we can’t very well tell you that something you use probably isn’t good for you, then not help you find an alternative, right? We plan to share our favorite products on the blog; if you need recommendations in the meantime, do email us!

I have two different face moisturizers that I really like – one for the morning, & one for the evening.


I use Acure’s Argan Oil. This stuff is awesome, & SO GOOD for your skin! “Incredibly rich in Vitamin E, Essential Fatty Acids, and Proteins, Argan Oil helps fight lines, repair imperfections, minimize scars + stretch marks; all while restoring texture, elasticity and tone” (from Acure’s website.) & it is completely natural & organic. Score!

But wait! There’s more!

I also use two or three drops to scrunch my hair & help pull the frizzies together. It kind of works as a mousse or gel. You don’t want to use too much, or it will just look oily. It’s so good for your hair, too.


I made this body butter recipe & I love it. I used almond oil instead of jojoba oil (because that's what I had), & I added about 10 drops each of YL’s lavender, frankincense, & melaleuca ericifolia – all oils that are really great for your skin. It makes my skin feel really soft.

So there you go – one option to purchase, one option to make!


  1. Is the Argan oil available at WF?

    1. I'm not sure. I saw that they do sell Acure shampoo so it's worth checking.
