My Secret to Super Soft Skin with Zakia's!

Thanks to my friends at Zakia's Morocco, I've discovered the secret to super soft skin.  Today, I'm going to share it with you!


I want to preface this post by letting y'all know I have extremely dry skin, but I avoid lotion at all costs unless it's winter.  My mom has amazing, moisturized skin and credits it to always applying lotion after showering, but I just can't get myself in that routine.  Zakia's Morocco sent me a set of products to try - a loofah, Moroccan Black Soap, a Kessa Exfoliating Glove, and 100% Pure Organic Argan Oil - and I was so excited because I love a good beauty routine.

I started by using the Moroccan Black Soap.  Just to be sure I was getting a good feel for the product, I used it after a day at the pool.  I was sticky from sunscreen/sweaty/covered in bug bites. #pleasant  You know how sometimes your skin just feels like super clean?  This was one of those moments for me.

I followed up by using the Kessa Royal Exfoliating Glove.  I was a teensy bit nervous because it said that it could remove a layer of your skin.  (I have a weak stomach.)  In my situation, I didn't lose a whole lot of skin, but my skin did feel amazingly soft afterwards... I'm talking soft like a baby's skin!

Post-shower, I dried off and broke out my favorite product of the bunch - the Argan Oil, aka my new beauty secret weapon!  I applied the oil to my entire body, being a little more liberal with it on places that I deal with extremely dry skin.  After body application, I applied a little more to my cuticles and let them soak for a few minutes before rinsing it off my hands.

I really thought that using oil on my body would make my apartment gross and greasy, but it really didn't.  I don't shower in the mornings, and my skin felt moisturized, but not oily.  And my skin had this beautiful goddess like sheen to it.  And the sheen was still there after I showered the next day!  (If that's not enough to make you love it, I don't know what will!)  

After a little trial and error, I think it's best to do this routine 2-3 times a week.

I'm probably the most annoying person in my friend group, because whenever I discover some amazing beauty tip, I want all of my friends to give it a try and get on board!  So I'm challenging y'all to give oil a try instead of lotion one night and see what a huge difference it makes.

If you're interested in giving these products a try, I've linked them all in my post or you can visit Zakia's Morocco.  They've also been gracious enough to give my readers a discount code - code ZMBLOG-189 will get you 20% off of your order!

If you have any questions about the products or code, feel free to ask in the comments or shoot me an email!  

Happy Thursday, y'all!

XX,

SS

  5. I love a good argan oil.
    Also, I started using an exfoliator recently that moisturizes my skin so well that I don't feel the need to even use a lotion afterwards.
    It's a miracle.

    Thanks for sharing and I will definitely have to check these out when I finish my already overwhelming amount of products.

    1. Girl, argan oil is amazing! I always bleed when I get a manicure, but this has kept my cuticles so moisturized just from using it like twice a week that they didn't bleed last time I had my nails done. Definitely worth giving it a try! Hope you're having a blast abroad!

    1. Do it! I honestly feel like it's less maintenance than lotion because I don't have to use it every day, and my skin doesn't crave it like it does when I use lotion.

  11. I'm willing to try almost anything that will make my skin more beautiful, good suggestions.

  13. I don't have much of a skin care routine (I wake up, wash my face, slap lotion and sunscreen on, and run out the door) and never heard of moroccan black soap until today! My cousin swears by argan oil though. I'll try your tip out!

  22. I have dry skin and I also avoid lotion like the plague. I don't know what it is! I really wanted to try this product though. I'm glad you had such a great experience with it! Recently I bought this spray-on lotion where I don't really have to rub it in and it dries without the lotion greasy feeling and I love it! I still forget to use it though haha.

  29. I purchased Moroccan black soap once and it left me "squeaky" clean xD Also, argan oil is pretty good because it doesn't just stay on, it dries away :)
