The supermodel gloss secret: Argan oil

Sara Sampaio Moroccanoil

Sara Sampaio is no newcomer to the fashion scene. She’s graced magazine covers, walked the runways and now fronts the Moroccanoil hair campaign. When she talks beauty, we listen!

The Portuguese model has 4.7 million Instagram followers, and it’s easy to see why with her lustrous locks, lithe limbs and killer smile. It’s also no surprise that she’s walked the catwalks for Victoria’s Secret, Versace and Marc Jacobs, with her fresh beauty being a major drawcard for magazines like Vogue, GQ and of course, GLAMOUR.

Sara’s favourite beauty products from the Moroccanoil line are those that launched argan oil into the international spotlight: Moroccanoil Treatment for hair, Moroccanoil Shimmering Body Oil, and Moroccanoil Sun Lotion SPF30. “They make me feel and look amazing,” says Sara.

What is it about argan oil that makes it so special? It’s sourced directly from Moroccan argan trees that manage to not only withstand, but remain lush amid drastically parched temperatures. When used in beauty products, the richness of the argan oil hydrates and nourishes even the driest skin and damaged hair strands. It also penetrates easily and helps protect again harsh conditions. Sara adds, “My hair is my baby! I like it to be smooth and shiny. Even if I don’t feel like doing anything else to my hair, I just towel dry it and put a little bit of the Moroccanoil Treatment on the ends — the way it dries is just so beautiful.”
