Spa Maroc: ‘all made with love’ that she suffered from facial acne as an adult. She credits her own handmade, organic, argan-oil anti-age lotions with the transformation in her skin. “I have chosen the best raw materials in my products. You can see the difference from the first time you apply it – it is all made with love,” she says.
