Lidl Argan Oil Bargain? Your Local Chemist Might Just Trump That..

There's many things I love about Lidl, their throwing your shopping at you, Hunger Games style at the end of the checkout isn't one but their occasional forays into cheap as chips beauty is definitely up there. The Argan Oil shampoo and conditioner, released on September 2nd is a perfect example. 

Just €2.49 per tube means you can get your mitts on, admittedly Argan Oil extract in these hair care goodies but, to be fair, the exclusive oil isn't too far down the ingredients list (that's bolstered with grúaig smoothing silicones and the like). I've been using it for a week now and, yep, I'm impressed.

Wanna know what impresses me more? 

Oh just 100ml Extra Free for 50c less! 

My very thoughtful Poppa picked these up in our local chemist for just €1.99 each and I'm thrilled with him for doing so. The gal on the counter said that they've been distributed to local chemists but are selling like hot cakes because of the Lidl promotion. 

So my advice? Definitely try these bad boys out, while they're not amazing for taming frizz, they are great for soft and manageable hair with a 'just washed' gloss to boot. If you haven't been quick enough to nab 'em in Lidl then be sure to check your local chemists - you could be very lucky. 

Let me know if you've tried 'em and your thoughts, ja?

Yup, got 'em in the local chemist a week before Lidl had them. I did get the serum in Lidl though, didn't see that in the chemist. Used the shampoo & conditioner a few times & it's grand, no problems with it! Used too much serum on wet hair & it made me greasy, I think I'll stick to using a teeny tiny bit on the ends of my hair when it's dry.

Ooh these sound perfect. I've always found it so expensive so this sounds like a great alternative. x

I'm so jealous that you managed to find some for even cheaper than in Lidl! I hope you don't mind but I actually mentioned your review in my comments for my review of the serum as someone mentioned they couldn't find it in their local Lidl!
