Josie Maran Argan Lip Treatment
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.
Help for parched lips
I loved this product as it is a great lip treatment _ I only have to apply it acouple of times a day rather then a lip balm that I have to apply constantly. The only suggestion I would make is to please include some kind of brush or applicator, it's very difficult to use your fingers. Thanks Josie your the best :)
I was expecting a smooth product...I checked other reviews, and did not see anything about it being gritty, like an exfoliating product. "Love" has a tint, so thought I could use it during the day, but there was too much grit to be able to do that. Returned...not as expected :(
Love, Love Love!!
This is one of the best products Josie has done! It goes on easily, stays smooth and has a nice flavor! Unfortunately, my cats found it and it has gone MIA, so will have to order another :)
