Lovely oil, beautiful scent and fantastic customer service
on 22 April 2014
I've been using coconut oil on my hair for a while now and was given a gift certifcate for my birthday, so I decided to try this scented Billy in the Tree argan oil. Arriving in a beautiful rose glass bottle, the argan oil itself smells divine, like Turkish delight, and you can definitely smell both the rose and the grapefruit. I use a single drop on the ends of my waist-length hair and work it through, going no higher than my shoulders, and the oil leaves my hair feeling soft and silky smooth. On Sunday I popped three drops all over my hair as a pre-wash treatment and coiled it up into a bun for the day. I won't lie, it was horribly greasy to wash out on Monday morning, but once I had washed my hair and allowed it to dry naturally my hair was lovely!
Used on the skin the scent is subtle and refreshing, the oil absorbs fast (without leaving that unpleasant greasiness which you sometimes get with facial oils) and you quickly see results. I've been using this oil as a night treatment and noticed after just one night that the patch of rosacea on my left cheek seemed slightly less pronounced. After three days my skin is much improved and the redness has faded dramatically to the point where I'm not even bothering to use my usual colour corrector under mineral foundation. I'm not sure I'd wear it during the day, as essential oils can react to UV light and stain your skin, but as an overnight moisturiser it's very pleasant. I haven't seen results on my crows feet and fine lines as yet, so can't comment on that.
As far as postage and packing goes, the oil arrived very quickly and was well packaged in bubble wrap and padding. It stated in the invoice that I received that there would be a pump included, as well as the glass pipette stopper, but there was no pump in the parcel. I contacted Billy in the Tree and Karen got back to my very quickly and explained that the invoice carries a standard message and that the pumps do not fit the bottles which the scented oils come in, only the original unscented argan oil. However she did offer to send me out a pump to fit. So bear this in mind if you prefer a pump top to a pipette!
