    Default barbary fig oil aka prickly pear seed oil benefits 3-4x superior than argan oil :O

    Argan Oil labelled as 'Liquid Gold' is not as effective as Barbary Fig Oil aka Prickly Pear Seed Oil. However it's the most expensive carrier oil!

    haha I only like one perfume out of my whole collection (which I gave to my brothers). If there happens to be a a perfume that makes it big, I'll probably buy a sample. I tried Creed GIT, Aventus, but I still think Costume National Scent Intense is better.

    On topic: Adverse Reactions

    Dermatitis from prickly pear is the most common adverse reaction. A case report of cactus dermatitis in a 2-year-old child was described after contact with O. microdasys . 67 Two other patients were also affected by this species, both experiencing dermatitis and one developing severe keratoconjunctivitis in the right eye. 68 A case of cactus granuloma in a 24-year-old man is described from contact with O. bieglovii thorns. 69 Granuloma formation has also been seen from O. acanthocarpa spines embedded in the dermis, with onset occurring within several days and lasting several months. Treatment with topical corticosteroids has been recommended. 70 , 71

    If barbary fig oil really is good, then I'll wait till companies use it as their main ingredients. So far there's been no supermodels that have their own barbary fig skincare/haircare line. Josie Maran has her own Argan Oil skincare line. I think same applies to Marula Oil.

    This is what a supermodel had to say about Argan Oil
