Wild About It: The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil

Who wears short shorts! With the summer officially here the season of short run shorts is upon us. For as long as I’ve been running my thighs have rubbed together. No matter my level of fitness this has simply been my reality. I spent years running all summer long in crops and capris until I discovered The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Miracle Solid Oil for Body & Hair.


I originally discovered this product three years ago while waiting for my flight at Pearson International Airport. I had time before my flight and wanted to see what was knew. The employee suggested this to me as a product to help the health of my hair, sounded good, so I bought it.

While heading out for a run that summer I had misplaced my typically body butter I had previously used on my inner thighs to prevent chafing and knowing the solid oil texture of this product, I figured this would work – it did and it was amazing.

Intended to treat extra-dry skin areas and lacklustre hair, this multi-purpose solid oil glides onto skin “for an instant moisture glow,” and is enriched with Community Trade argan oil from Morocco. And it smells amazing!

FullSizeRender(25)I started off simply taking the lid off and just rubbing it onto my leg chafe zones without actually touching it with my fingers. It is 70% oil so is appropriately greasy. It’s now two summers later and I now have no choice but to scoop it out with my fingers, and rub it onto areas in need, plus whatever other area to use up what is left on my hands.

This product is amazing and is a staple in my summer run gear. I’ve even taken time in transition to put it on during my triathlons.

It is available online or in store at a great price ($14 **currently on sale for $7**). The only downfall of this product (although it’s really not that bad) is that it has a natural yellow colouring after application. Depending on my skin tone the yellow can sometimes be very obvious – but it is so worth it.

If you like running in short shorts, let this Wild Argan Oil Miracle Solid Oil for Body & Hair help you rock it.
