Joèl’s Big Mistake

It will come as no surprise to you that every night before bed I go crazy with my Argan Oil.  Face, neck, décolletage, hands, feet, et cetera!  I slather it on after a long bath and settle in for the evening.

My love for Argan Oil arose from my Angry Eyelid Issue, which I talk about here and here.  As you can imagine, my eyelids get a lot of love nowadays.  But one night I overdid it with the Argan Oil.  I got a bit in my eye.  It didn’t hurt at all, but it did make my vision blurry, so I was having a hard time reading my beloved book, and that made me cranky.  So I rinsed out my eyes, was a bit more careful with the oil and then went to bed in the middle of a really good chapter.  I woke up the next morning with my vision restored and my eyelids soft, hydrated and happy.

Of course, I didn’t want that to happen again, so I didn’t put as much Argan Oil on my eyelids the following nights.  (I had to finish and return my book to the library after all..)

WHAT A MISTAKE.

(You thought getting the oil in my eye was the mistake.  Oh no!  You are… erm, mistaken.)

After a few days of conservative Argan Oil use on my upper and lower lids I was so very sorry.  There was a half centimetre of dry, miserable skin around my lash line.  Top and bottom.

For the love of frog, was I ever mad.  My concealer didn’t want to go on.  My eyeshadow looked like I’d just put it on a snake that was about to shed her skin.  Don’t ask how it felt to put liquid eyeliner on.

Fortunately, it only took a couple of days to fix My Big Mistake.  I have my awesome lids back once again. I just make sure that I’m DONE reading for the night before I really go nuts with the oil.

xo, joèl~
