Josie Maran Pure Argan Oil with Bonus Color Stick
Josie Moran Argan Oil
This Argan oil has a terrible smell. No fragrance like the Moroccan oil. Very disappointed for this reason. Would not recommend if you want to smell nice.
I have just received my second bottle of Argan Oil, and like it so much. It makes my skin very soft and smooth looking. I am an older lady, and I use it under my moisturizer, it really makes a difference. It helps my dry hair, nails and skin look so much better. The Bonus Stick I have been using on my lips and cheeks , it adds a nice blush, and it smells good, too.
Oil okay, bonus stick, poor.
The oil is okay but the bonus stick is dry and stiff. The stick is unusable. Obviously, if it had enough Argan oil in it, it wouldn't have dried up! I won't waste money again on this brand.
Used Primarily In Hair
I have used this product for a year and a half now, every since I chopped my relaxed hair and stopped chemically straightening. It's pricey, but you get what you pay for. I have 3c/4a hair and this natural oil works wonders with shine and manageability. I have tried other argan oils from other companies to try and save money, but they sat on my hair creating build up. When i tried other argan oils on my skin, they did not sink in as well there either. So, I bucked up and came back and spent my hard earned money on what worked for me. I would suggest buying the smaller bottles first to see if either the regular or light versions work for you and then purchase if you find that they do. That is what I did and now I never run out. I do plan on trying this oil as a facial moisturizer as well, maybe I can stop spending money in that area and just use Josie MARAN argan oil exclusively.
I wanted to love this product, but after using it for three days my skin looked older and drier with more visible fine lines . I have great skin and am told that I look twenty years younger than my 60 years. I do not have dry skin but for some reason this oil did not perform as well as it did for other women. It never sunk in, just stayed on the surface looking oily, not moist & dewy. I do like the Bonus Color Stick and will order that, I like it because it makes my lips look very youthful and natural. I even like the smell, sort of mentholated like Noxema skin cream.
Not very impressed, sad to say
I used Argan oil at least two years before Josie Maran started selling it, so was not that anxious to jump on the bandwagon. Anyway, I decided to go ahead and try her product since it came with that little bonus color stick. My opinion is that it too thick and heavy, doesn't move easily, and yes, I do exfoliate, and I really didn't like the color stick. I felt that rather than add moisture to my lips, it made them feel a little dry and you have to keep applying. The light argan oil she sells may be better, but at almost $84, someone is getting terribly ripped off, so not even looking at that product. If it was something unique I would pop for it, but you can get this stuff anywhere. First pressed, and not.
I bought a sample of the argan oil, at a department store, to try out before committing to a pricey product. I did enjoy its benefits and ordered from QVC. Products work well! Color stick is great. It has no harsh scent or flavor as in other reviews. The color is really natural and neutral. The only complaint I have is not with the product but with the shipping. It was sent USPS and took a bit longer than UPS. I prefer all of my QVC purchases to be sent UPS...can't help it but I'm to impatient to wait for my QVC goodies.
This was the best investment I made with QVC the oil is great my skin is glowing I will definitely reorder this and I also like the rosy blush that comes with it it feels great on my lips
This is my first order of Josie Maran argan oil product. It made my skin hydrated and it felt nice, however, I started having breakouts on my chin and cheeks. Not sure if this was causing this. The color stick is fabulous. I regrettably had to return and look for something else that wouldn't give me breakouts.
Amazing High Quality Moisture
This is my daytime and nighttime moisturizer however I am going to try her new spf Argan Oil cream moisturizer for daytime since I live in Florida....but let me just say about this product as a 37 year old woman who has a normal/dry combo skin which means I have occasional dry spots but not major...I LOVE THIS. I love this so much that I actually decided to feature it as the goto moisturizer on my YouTube channel. Why? Because despite the word oil do not be mistaken if you have oily skin, normal skin, dry skin, or combination skin like me you can use this oil you may just use a different amount than I do. I put a drop on my forehead, a drop on each cheek and a drop on my chin and I spread it around also down to my neck. My skin has never looked more beautiful.
I bought this because I was running out of my regular moisturizer and Josie always does a great job of promoting her products. I was looking for something that would be light on my face and not be greasy through out the day, especially after 12 hours of wear. It goes on light and the oil soaks in quickly, but after about 6 hours of wear my face seemed more oily than I have ever noticed before wearing moisturizer on a regular basis. I have varied the amounts of product that I use but it doesn't seem to matter. The bonus color stick is not a color that I would use on a regular basis, as my skin tone is very fair. Definitely not a good choice for summer.
On the Fence But Like It Now
I bought the small bottle of this product a few months ago and thought it was such a a waste of money. I DID use it all and thought that it went too quickly for the price I paid.
I also left a review stating that it worked just as well as coconut oil.....
Well, while getting to the bottom of my first bottle I started noticing how great my arms . legs and decollate looked after this was applied especially when you have a tan. Your skin glows w/o being too sticky feeling. Also , I did try sweeping to all over my hair and face (left over on hand from body) and it makes a difference. My nails are more hydrated, etc.
So I bought the big bottle because of my change of heart. It came w/ the color stick which I don't really use as of yet other than trying t just once on cheeks and lips. Wasn't bad but I'm not going to review it yet after one try....
Its not cheap but it does make a difference compared to other oils I have tried.
