Josie Maran Argan Lip Treatment
When this arrived I was surprised at how small the container is, to me this is very overpriced. And hard to get to.
I Wouldn't Buy This Again.
It's an okay product, but I feel like the quality is matched by some of the drugstore products out there for a third of the price. I have a million Josie Maran products and am willing to pay for quality, but this Lip Treatment isn't worth it. It doesn't stay long on your lips and isn't doing anything to help heel my dry lips beyond the hour or two that the product is on my lips. It's not doing anything cumulatively. I have better luck putting Josie's The Balm on my lips overnight to help my lips soften. I'll stick to that.
Love, Love The Balm.
Love the balm. It is so soothing, and not sticky.
Would like a better vessel though. The two screw threads wear out or break off too soon. Just a regular jar would be good.
I too was surprised by the gritty feeling at first but after reading it is a lip TREATMENT I thought duh... lol... I love the scent.and the taste. It has not dried out my lips as others have commented about, actually the opposite...they feel great! I use a retractable lip brush from MK and have no sticky fingers, or wasted product. Thanks Josie and QVC!
I use a lot oj Josie's products and love this! It is nourishing and hydrating. Exactly what I need! I received this in a set and heard the pots are going away :-( Luckily they will last awhile. The means of getting it out of the pot isn't any different then using another brand of balm. It may be different when I get to the bottom - but for now I'm happy :-)
Seems Different Than Before
I am not sure if this is the same lip product that was in one of Josie's kits. I don't recall it having the "gritty" feeling (as another customer called it)...It does seem like an exfoliator.
QVC did not offer the clear by itself before. I purchased it several times from another company who carries this line. It was very smooth going on. I would use it at night and then in the morning under some lip color...Wondering if there were changes made. I agree the little jar is adorable. I save them to use for other things....I won't be returning it, but I am not sure I would purchase again with this new texture.
I've heard great things about this product, but I have mixed feelings. I love the little container. I think the packaging is adorable. The lip gloss itself is good, but it's gritty. It has these little white ball things in there. I'm not sure if it's for exfoliation? I don't like the way it feels on my lips though. I wish it didn't have those things in there. I like the gloss, but I don't think it's worth the high price, or better than cheaper glosses. I wouldn't buy this product again.
I had high hopes for this product based on the reviews. It goes on like silk, but I have to use my fingernail to put it on, as there is no applicator and the jar is so small, it's a workout just to do that. It didn't stay on for long and had a slight drying effect. I didn't want to return it because I wanted to give it a chance because of the Argan Oil. I use it at night. I put a coat of it on my lips and top it off with Sally Hansen Overnight Lip Recovery and within 5 days, my lips were perfect. I won't be purchasing this again though.
LOVE Josie's products!
While using the lip treatment my lips stay feel comfortable. I live in the mountains where my skin tends to dry up during this time of the year. After showering it feels good to apply the oil all over!
Sorry but this missed the mark. No staying power. It comes off if someone looks at u sideways. Great idea poor product. Dries my lips out too. I am a fan of most of josies products but this one is bad.:(
Taste is Awful
I purchased 2 of these and both are very creamy which I like, however they taste just awful. If they had a pleasant taste I would recommend them, but unfortunately I will not buy again for this reason alone. Any flavor would be an improvement but I agree with another reviewer, they taste like perfume. They do not last any longer than many other lip balms I've tried, including $3.00 items from the dept. store and for the price, it would be nice to find something unique to bring me back for more. Still love QVC, just not this item.
I kept this because of the packaging but really have not seen any change. FYI, when I used it I used my pinky and went, I guess you could say, from back to front using my nail. It worked well for application. I really wish Josie would come out with a large clear color stick. I had one in a TSV purchase and loved it. However, it can only be ordered in conjunction with other products. If she would offer that, I would be on auro-delivery.
