Josie Maran Pure Argan Oil Light with Bonus Color Stick
I just received this set yesterday, so it may be too early to tell, but I do like the oil and probably could have gone with the heavier formula for my dry skin, but wanted to start here. Love the color stick quite a bit. The color is great and sheer, but not quite as moisturizing as I need, but I can dab a clear gloss over it. The oil does not smell great, I have to say I was a bit disappointed about that. Has a bit of a rancid odor which dissipates once it is on the skin. Maybe the bottle is old...don't know, but the moisturizing effect is great. Will have to see how this plays out over time, but so far so good.
Love, love, love
This product is amazing! I never used the full strength, so I don't notice a different smell. i have oily skin, and the light oil keeps my skin hydrated and balanced. My skin is soft and bright.
I have very sensitive skin, I had a reaction to the regular oil and the light worked great for me. I did not find it to have an odor problem but I it does run into the eyes so I avoid that area and use an eye cream instead.
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.
