Josie Maran Light Bronze Whipped Argan Illuminizing Body Butter 8oz
Just the right amount of shimmer!
I love Josie's original body butter. I bought this one for my daughter who wanted a product that had a shimmer or glow to it. This product is perfect. Not only does it hydrate and
moisturize; but, it gives an ever so subtle "shimmer." Exactly what she was looking for.
This product is almost edible! Its smells like vanilla pudding and the texture is a bit like it too. Its very thick and a little goes a long ways. Its very concentrated with the bronzers that are in it. I like to dilute it a little with one of my other JM body butters, It goes on thick without doing so. Still I love it but not sure I would buy again.
In reading some of the other reviews, I am surprised that every person did not give this 5 stars! Gorgeous scent, amazing texture, and makes my skin look flawless and sun kissed. I have never had the experience of staining, maybe because I use it specifically to make my skin look pretty in warm weather clothes.i have given this as gifts, and every gal has reordered herself! Stunning product, worth every penny, I don't ever want to be without it!
Fake Tan Appearance
Love the Vanilla Peach scent; however, that's all I love about it. The illuminizing effect is too dark, and makes my legs look like they have a fake, orangey-tan. The body butter itself feels drier than the non-illuminizing body butter. I fact I add a few drops of Argan oil to make it feel more buttery and hydrating. I'm glad I bought the 2 oz. size and not the full 8 oz. size. I used the entire jar before writing this review, and can say I'm glad I ran out. I would like to see the Vanilla Peach scent in the regular body butter. I would certainly stock up!
a glitter tanning lotion
This product has a lot of glitter in it and it has color in it that stains your clothes like lipstick. That's what I actually use it for is lipstick. It takes the dead skin off my lips and it's a nice color and shiny.
The Color Transfers To Cloths
I like this product and it is a great moisturizer. However, I put it on my legs and wore a pair of white Capri pants. As the day went on I looked down at my pants and I had a tan color on my white capri's by my knees. I realized that the color transferred from my legs to my pants when I crossed my legs while sitting down. I washed my pants and the color came out but I am now careful about what I wear when I use this product. Otherwise, I would give it 5 stars. Next time I will purchase the body butter without the color. I do like and use all of the Argon oil products
Did not like it. Too thick and shiny. Gave it away
Preview Your Review
I really have come to love Josie Maran's body butters. With one exception (which I discussed in another review# they smell very nice -- subtle,. soft and comforting -- and give a beautiful sheen to the skin.
The reason I didn't give it five stars is because of the packaging. There is no aluminum or plastic cover so when I accidentally knocked it over #and I'm not blaming Ms. Maran for my clumsiness -- but accidents do happen) the contents spilled and splattered all over my bed sheets and floors and left apricot-brownish .I didn't wait to throw them in the machine -- I quickly hand scrubbed the items in my bathtub and fortunately all the stains disappeared.
I think Ms. Maran ought to put some kind of inner covering be it plastic or aluminum for several reasons: 1) it will protect the product from contamination, it will lessen if not eliminate the kind of experience I had and lastly it will safeguard the integrity of the product.
Most cosmetic companies protect their products in some way and I think it's time for J. Maran to do the same. There's a lot of product in that 8 oz jar and wow when it's all over your sheets and clothing it looks like twice as much.
Love, Love, Love
This product is sooo creamy. It also has added sparkles that were not mentioned when watching the presentation. What an added bonus.
Unpleasant odor and color
Returned due to smell and sparkle. Unscented would be much better,
MY NEW FAVORITE BODY BUTTER
Looks better on in person..it didn't come off on my clothes...looks great on your legs!!!
I also mix a little of your bronzing oil with it and put it on my face for more color and no makeup needed, except mascara
I love the regular whipped argan BUT this is for teens who want glitter?I put this on before my Pilates class hoping for hydration and a little bronzing. I walked outside into the sun and sparkling from my palms to my toes. As others stated, it's hard to get off your hands and clothes. Buy the regular product if you don't want disco glittler.
