Josie Maran Argon Oil Review
Skip to 6:28 to hear me talk about the product!
The thought of applying oil on my face scare me a lot. I mean who wants to put pure oil on their face? If I wanted to do that I would have gone into my kitchen, opened up a cabinet and dunked my face into a tub of oil. This of course is a horrible idea, so don't even think of doing something like that.
Natural oils actually do great things for skincare! I have combination-oily skin and thought that applying oil on my face was going to make me look disgusting but it actually worked wonders!
The Josie Maran Argan Oil ($58) is 100% organic cold pressed argan oil from Marocco, and one of my HG products.
What it claims: This legendary, lightweight oil, grown organically in Morocco, is rich in vitamin E and essential fatty acids. Use it as a fast absorbing daily moisturizer, or to heal and condition everything from cuticles to split ends. Plus it is 100% organic! Housed in a recyclable glass bottle.1.7 fl oz./50ml.
This product literally measures up to every single one of their claims! I use it as a daily moisturizer; day and night and I have seen a world of difference in my skin. My skin always feels soft, supple, and healthy! My acne scars have lightened up significantly as well! I can fee my skin be nourished with goodness. I would say this is relatively fast absorbing for an oil, but you really do have to work it into your skin. I don't recommend applying this right before makeup because your makeup can stick to your skin leaving a concentrated blob of colour.
The product come with a little dropper applicator which makes things really convenient and hygienic. Although the dropper makes things convenient, it can make application difficult as well. I squeeze all the product out of the dropper and wipe the sides of the dropper on my palm. Then, I just ruuuuub it in baaabby ;)
If you don't want to apply this product to your entire face, it's also a great dry spot treatment. The product comes in a smaller travel size for $14 which some of you might be interested in if you have a few super flaky problem areas! It really is the best product on the market for fixing flaky dry spots!
The oil smells very natural and light.
The major downside about this product is undoubtingly the high price tag! It costs $58 for 1.7oz. It has lasted me about 8 months with daily application and I have finished just over half the bottle! Therefore, although the product does last relatively long, I wouldn't use it for anything other than my skin. All this stuff about applying it as a hair treatment, nails etc. is
bullshit nonsense as you would run broke replacing this product all the time!
I recommend this product to those all skin types! I would be careful if you have sensitive skin because organic products may react poorly to sensitive skin.
