Review - The Pound Shop Argan Oil!


I'm sure I'm not the only one who is a sucker for a bargain! I love going in to pound shops and 99p shops to see what products they have on their shelves. It's always great when we spot our favourite brands on the shelves of these shops!

I recently nipped to Poundworld after hearing that people had spotted Sleek makeup on their shelves. Unfortunately I was left slightly dissapointed as the shop I went to only had a couple of lipsticks left :( but they did have a HUGE stack of mascaras, so obviously I picked up a couple of those! I then went to the hair care section and spotted they had Argan Oil on the shelves for just £1! I was a little put back as first as it doesn't seem to be branded in any way, but for just £1 I though it was worth a try!

Pound Shop Argan Oil Hair Treatment

Pound Shop Argan Oil Hair Treatment

It comes in a lovely little 30ml bottle which I think is standard for hair oils. It also came boxed which made it seem a bit posher than something I'd just picked up from the pound shop. I would just like to say that I have never tried Argan Oil (or any type of hair oil) before this so have literally nothing to compare it to. It has a mild scent, which just smells a bit like the hairdressers or standard hair care products. 30ml doesn't seem like a lot but with this product a little goes a long way! It says to use 4-5 drops for long hair, which I've found to be just right. I've been applying it to towel dried hair and then styling my hair as normal. I was a little worried that it would make my hair look greasy or be too heavy for my hair but it's not like that as all. After drying you wouldn't know that I've applied 'oil' to my hair, it just feels lovely, soft and shiney. I would say that unfortunately the results from this product only last a day or two and after that my hair doesn't feel as soft but for a £1 product, I can't complain!

Have you tried the Pound Shop Argan oil? Would hair oil do you recommend?



  1. I have only tried the Moroccanoil hair oil and it works amazingly. Even though its pricey, it lasts really long.

  2. Will need to be trying this, currently obsessed with hair oils/oils in general actually! I am loving the hask argan oil which is sold in primark for just £2.50! Thank you for sharing this.


  3. as requested, "Hi".

    I bought a few of the Argan Oil products (conditioner, oil etc) from Home bargains. Only tried the conditioner so far and think it's pants. Very watery/thin and didn't do the job at all. Interesting reading what you think of the oil. I'm yet to try that. Like you say, cheap so can't complain much, i guess.

  4. I have used this product for 4 weeks, thinking it was helping the condition of my hair, but it became drier. Hair started to go fluffy and swell, the 4 week, started falling out in massive pieces have photos to prove, hairdresser said I had burn mark patches on my hair that are orange in colour. Contacted Pound World as I think they should remove it from the shelves they still not responded after me leaving contact details. Coloured my hair with box die previous to purchasing oil but have used box dies for last 15 years, without hair problems. Buyer beware

  5. This is great! can easily out at these place or order in! thanks so much! Pound shop
