Josie Maran Pure Argan Oil Light with Bonus Color Stick
Why does it smell like cooking oil.
Can't get past the smell. Even after it has been on my face for an hour or more, I still smell
the sickening smell. Going back. Why change a good thing? The original didn't have any odor, but the light ugh.
I really like the light oil; I also like the regular one too. Josies' argon oil is like liquid gold!
I have used all of her products; and would give all of them 10 stars if I could.
I am very "fussy" about what I put on my skin and hair and the pure argon oil ranks #1 of any product I use. The light oil is nice for Summer.
If you haven't tried it yet; buy it, use it and I think you too will see the difference this product will make on your skin.
This argon oil light is a real WINNER!
The original oil is wonderful. This light version smells rancid. Also, it does not absorb easily.
I threw it in the trash.
The oil has a bad smell. I do like the color stick. The oil I use in my hair with a wen oil. I do this before I wash my hair to help the dryness. Is this normal for the oil to smell strange?
I LOVE Josie's Argan oil but am so disappointed in the light. As others have noted, the smell is bad, almost a rancid odor. I cannot stand it. I so love her products and will be going back to the my regular oil.
I love Josie's regular 100% Argan Oil. The Light Oil in this kit has an oily scent to it...I wouldn't exactly say rancid, but like old oil. It makes me wonder how the single ingredient "Argan Isostearylic Esters" differs from 100% pure, first cold-pressed Argan Oil in the original formula and what causes this odor. It does dissipate on the skin after a while, but is not as pleasant to apply as the original oil...I also don't see much difference, if any, in the "lightness".
Light Made All the Difference for Me!
I love the Light Argan Oil! Thanks Josie! The Original was too heavy for me, but this is "just right." I can't explain it, I just see and feel the difference. It really helps my gardening rough hands, cuticles. It makes my neck and face so soft. I run the "extra" through my hair for nice shine to thick curly hair. Awesome. :) HTH
I like the Josie Maran products. I wanted to try the light oil so I ordered. It is good but not as good as the original. My skin is dry and the light oil doesn't absorb as well as the original. It was delivered with the cap damaged and some oil leaked into the box. I kept it anyway.
Light A Mistake
I used the regular oil from Josie, and no issues. I was thrilled to buy the light version, and quite disappointed because it is thin, travels to your eyes, and has an oil odor to it. The color sticks have a menthol scent, that is unpleasant. I have enjoyed Josie's line, but this light oil is a loser.
todays special value w/daily moisturizer spf
I bought the todays special value which included the daily moisturizer w/spf 47 along with these two items. The first day I used the moisturizer, I got a sunburn on my face. I was out in early morning for only 2 hours. The product also left my face feeling dry and tight. I tried it one more time, but ended up washing it off do to the tightness of my skin. As for the color stick, when I took the cap off, it had a strong odor of menthol, the last ingredient of the product. It burned my lips when I used it and was ruff like it had sand mixed in. I didn't try it as a blush on my face. Today I returned the products, I didn't even bother opening the argon light oil to try.
I can only review the smell because I couldn't get past it to actually review the product. It smelled like rancid oil. The regular Josie Maran Argan Oil is wonderful. I wouldn't even bother with the light.
Not nearly as good as the original.
I L-O-V-E the ORIGINAL 100% Argan Oil. The ORIGINAL is light, absorbs quickly, is good for my face (as well as hands and other body parts) and actually soothes my delicate skin when an occasion irritation or flair-up hits. I use the (newish) Josie Maran milk serum, then the ORIGINAL 100% Argan Oil before applying makeup and at night.
This version just does not stack up; and it didn't seem any "lighter" in any way to me. (Also, the bottle came with the seal opened. Perhaps the oil was compromised as a result?)
STICK WITH JOSIE'S ORIGINAL VERSION. It's da bomb!
