Josie Maran Pure Argan Oil Light with Bonus Color Stick
I purchased the Holiday collection so I could try the Light Argon Oil, and it is a no go. It smells horrid. It does have a rancid smell and it really bothers me. I like the original much better. It does have a tendency to just sit on top of the skin. I use the Milk serum, then put Clinic Moisture surge, then place the original Argon oil on top of that. I then use the serum color correcting makeup. I really like that combination the best since I have such dry skin. The original Argon oil has a tendency to stay on top my skin in certain areas. I don't know if that is an area, I don't needs as much or not, but that is what works for me. Disappointed I still have to use moisture with Josie's products.
LOVE THIS ARGAN OIL!!!
I purchased this several months ago and OMG!!! I LOVE THIS PRODUCt!! My wrinkles have smoothed out and my face is soooo soft! I still have half a bottle, but I don't EVER want to be without it, so I just ordered 2 bottles....but 1 I am giving to my daughter! I'm sure she will love it too!
This product just lays on the skin and does not absorb. That includes face, neck, hands or anywhere I use it.
I have seen Josie Maran on QVC with her Argan Oil products for many years...I was hesitant to purchase it because I needed something for my dryness on my face and I have combination skin. I was worried that because it is an "oil" that I would have break-outs! Imagine that at 47 yrs. old! Well, I finally decided to try this...what do I have to lose? QVC has a great return policy if I didn't like it...However, I LOVE IT!! The first time I used it on my face, it absorbed right in, left no greasy feel, and made my face softer and more hydrated than it has EVER been. Incredible product, Josie! Wish I had taken the leap years ago! And the Color Stick is awesome....gorgeous on my lips and cheeks...definitely recommend this product to anyone!! Don't wait as long as I did!!
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.
