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.
