Zinn Organic Body Care Review

It's always been said that the Egyptians and ancient tribes of the Middle East truly did hold a secret to a beautiful skin. And with that, a way to feel and look younger. One of the most renowned cosmetic and food ingredients – Argan Oil – comes to our technological world from Morocco.

I am religious about taking great care of my skin and hair. Nothing will keep you looking longer then taking great care of yourself. Have you ever heard anyone say “She’s let herself go.. she looks so beautiful?” I have NEVER heard that in my entire life.

So, I do everything in my power to keep up a beauty regimen. The harsh elements of the sun, wind, or cold air leaves my hair and skin looking dry and dehydrated. Here lately, that’s been the sun and sweltering heat of course.

The nourishing and rehydrating ingredients in Zinn Beauty have revamped my dry skin. Zinn has four products for hair and skin that contain Moroccan Argan Oil. I was excited to try these four products which were- 100% Moroccan Argan Oil, Revitalizing Anti-Aging Cream, Velvet Facial Cleansing Milk and Smooth Body Milk.

Moroccan Oil Benefits:

  • Loaded with Vitamin E (tocopherol) – huge antioxidant that protects against oxidative activities by free radicals
  • Rich in Unsaturated Fatty Acids (as much as 80% of oil) – heals many skin ailments
  • Improves skin metabolism
  • Reduces Inflammation
  • Promotes excellent moisture retention shield

Every product that is made by Zinn is certified organic, natural, and pure.

You can buy a 2 ounce bottle of 100% Moroccan Argan Oil for $29.99 from the website. The Moroccan oil is naturally cultivated, and can be used for many uses. I used this in all the ways to give it a thorough try.

On your hair, you can use it with either wet or dry hair. I used this as both. I used it as a before shampoo treatment AND to protect my hair before I blow-dried it or straightened it. It helps to eliminate frizz and revitalize split ends.

Because I have a really dry scalp- I dripped a couple of drops into my palms and then applied this to my scalp and hair, threw it in a ponytail and let it sit in my hair for 20 minutes while I watched TV with the kids. Then rinsed it out, shampooed and conditioned as usual- and then sprinkled a couple more drops and blow dried it.

My hair didn’t look like it usually did. There was no frizz at all. I was surprised. My hair tends to get frizzy and unruly in the summer heat. It ends up sticking to the back of my neck and I end up just putting it into a ponytail- so half the time I wonder why I even bother to style it.

I loved that I could style my hair with this (just a small amount) and the frizz was completely gone. Of course it can’t take away the hot summer heat- so I was still drowning in THAT but at least my hair looked good while I did. =)

You can also use this on your cuticles to moisturize them- Whether you’ve just gotten a really nice manicure and want to keep it that way OR you have dry cracked cuticles, this works amazing.

Just sprinkle a couple of drop and rub into your cuticles and let those babies soak up the limelight. I tend to get these pesky little pieces of skin that break away from my cuticles and turn red and painful. This did help with that. My cuticles stayed moisturized and I didn’t end up having to fight with the pain of a split cuticle.

I love the packaging on this. The bottle looks so elegant and sophisticated. When you open this up it reveals a small hole in the top of the bottle. You just turn the bottle sideways and sprinkle some into your hands. Easy as pie.

The Smooth Body Milk is also made with Moroccan Argan Oil- including the ingredients Shea Butter and Jojoba Oil. This comes in a 6.8 ounce squeezable tube that is available on the website for $24.99.

The texture of this body milk is thick and creamy, but when you begin to apply it- it seems to thin out and soak into the skin. I love that it doesn’t leave behind a greasy film, and doesn’t rub off into my clothes.

Because it soaks into the skin so well, I don’t have to wait forever to put my clothes on after I get out of the shower or pat myself down with a towel after. It doesn’t really have a scent- just really great replenishing effects that make my skin feel absolutely amazing.

I use this on every inch of my body (with exception to my face) after getting out of the pool or the shower. It feels great not to only be rehydrating my skin but to also be healing it as well. The oil that is in the body milk can fade stretch marks and scars over time.

Ultra rich, deep conditioning, body lotion.Enriched with Argan Oil, Shea Butter and Jojoba Oil. Provides the most complete nourishing care. Heals, and softens the driest areas. Softens cuticles, and dry, cracked heels.

Helps fade stretch marks, and helps heal scars. Leaves skin looking healthy, smooth, and more even toned.

The Velvet Facial Cleansing Milk is created with Argan Oil, Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil and Rosehip Seed. You can use this morning and night and all skin types can use this. It has a thick texture but when you put it on your skin it feels like an air-whipped mousse and soaks deeply into the skin.

This cleanser has a light scent and it smells sort of citrusy and it very refreshing. This is a milk cleanser, so it doesn’t lather or foam up when it’s used.

This is perfect for removing dirt, oil, and makeup. I dampen my skin with warm water and then massage this into my face (in a circular motion) both morning and night. Then rinse it off with warm water. It leaves my skin smooth, baby fresh, and smelling nice. =)

All natural deep cleansing milk infused with essential oils including Argan Oil, Jojoba Oil, Tea Tree Oil, Rosehip Seed Oil, and Shea Butter to repair damage, and replenish nutrients to the skin as you cleanse, leaving skin clear, smooth and blemish free.

The Revitalizing Anti-Aging Cream comes in a 1.8 oz squeezable tube and can be purchased for $29.99. This cream is made with Argan Oil, Shea Butter and Jojoba oils. I use this before going to bed after I’ve washed my face with the cleansing milk.

I only have to use a dime sized amount to get both my face and neck. It has kind of a herbal scent and thicker consistency. It rubs in very well even though it’s thick and creamy. There isn’t any sight of it once it’s rubbed in. No greasy, oily feelings at all.

Rich in antioxidants, essential fatty acids and phenols to stimulate cellular renewal, this luxurious collagen boosting moisturizer, instantly softens and smoothes skin, while providing a viable layer of protection between skin and free-radicals that cause damage, and pre-mature aging.Fast absorbing, and extremely penetrative, Zinn nourishes, heals, protects and renews, for clearer, smoother, younger looking skin visible after each use.

About Zinn Beauty (from their website):

For centuries, Moroccan women have used Argan Oil to preserve and enhance their beautiful skin, hair, and nails. The rarest of all oils, Argan Oil is harvested from the Argan tree which grows exclusively in the South-Western region of the Country, and can only be collected through the intricate process of cracking each individual nut, and extracting the kernel, which is then pressed and ground, to yield the highest nutritive quality of oils.

Rich in antioxidants, essential fatty acids, vitamins and plant sterols, Berber women began cultivating Argan Oil pre-modern times, for its healing properties, employing it for a variety of uses from cooking, to topical treatment of skin diseases, to cosmetic uses in the protection of the hair and skin against the harsh, dry, climate of the Moroccan desert. In the 1500’s, the legend of the miraculous Argan Tree and it’s precious oil began to reach Europe, with demand for the exotic oil reaching its historical height in 1867 when it debuted at the International Fair in Paris.

Now the secret to perfect skin, and healthy hair is ubiquitous, as women around the world seek proven age-old, organic beauty treatments that naturally endow flawless, more radiant, younger looking skin, and stronger, more lustrous hair, and nails. The Zinn Collection features the finest organically cultivated Moroccan Oil. 100% Organic, our products assure that the ancient healing properties of Argan Oil still exist today, offering restorative beauty, and nourishing care for modern women everywhere.
