Josie Maran Whipped Argan Body Butter Duo Jasmine &Ginger
The smell :(
I love the product and believe the wonderful things they say it can do for your skin. I have notice that it had helped to even my skin clarity. It is a bit oily but it is whipped oil so that I'm ok with but the scent I can not get past. The Jasmine is ok and I used that jar first now I'm on to the ginger and I can't stand it. I know it's suppose to be natural but it smells to earthy. It makes me feel like I need to take a bath all over again, it doesn't smell fresh or clean.
What happened to the Jasmine?
This is the second time I have bought this. Do not like the ginger but LOVED the first Jasmine. This second order smells completely different. Sort of a strong version of the green tea undertones in the honeysuckle one, which ruined the honeysuckle, by the way. It is terrible smelling.
I think someone spilled the wrong fragrance into this batch. I will try again in a few months when I assume it will be a new batch. If they cannot keep the scent the same there is no sense in buying it.
It would be nice to be able to order these separately so you only get the fragrance you want.
Scents are Awful!
I love the body butters, but the scents are terrible! Jasmine I will be able to tolerate, but the ginger is not at all flattering!
best moisturizer ever
This is a wonderful product. Without a doubt the best I have ever used and I have used numerous very high end department store moisturizers since I was a cosmetic buyer for several years. A little goes a long way it looks, feels and smells lovely. Please continue making it. This is my second shipment and I couldn't wait to get it even though I was only out for 2 days. I'm hooked!
I received this today and like many others found jars only half full. Also the Jasmine whipped butter does not smell the same as the one I received in a kit. Both smells are not good at all...very disappointed.
Jasmine and Ginger
These body butters are amazing and the scents are, too! The ginger is warm and comforting and the jasmine smells delicious. I'm ordering more so I don't run out!!!
thank you, Josie
This is a re-order of Josie Maran Argan body butter for me! I tried the pure Argan oil that she has as well, loved it for my cuticles, lips and eye area but was a little scared to put it under my sheets at night. This body butter is fabulous and I feel does a great job on moisturizing and healing my shin. A very little goes a long way...but sometimes I put extra on to let it soak in...my skin...including my heels...looks and feels so hydrated by morning...without socks or stickiness. Some of the reviews have mentioned the scent...it smelled good to me but the scent is very low key so you don't feel like it is hanging in the air all day! Also some mentioned that there was a vacant area in the jar...when you set the jar on your counter...all the body butter settles in place and all is fine. Try this...your skin will love it.
Love product, agree with scent problem
This product is the best there is. Keeps my legs shiny and hydrated from morning shower till I slip into bed. Perfect EXCEPT that nagging scent! I couldn't stand it from the moment I opened the jar, but darn it, it works so good that i just put up with it. And it's a STRONG scent. Not like it fades real fast. I may try one of the smaller jars with different scents, and also be able to keep in my purse. These jars are too big for purse. Seriously love product, but scent is overwhelming.
Don't Like Scents
I'm pleased with all of the products from Josie that I have. I'm addicted to the Argan oil and use a lot of it. I so wanted to love these Body Butters, but these scents are offensive to me and I had to wash them off immediately. I had a similar experience with the Josie's Be Renewal Body Butter. Please make unscented or something light (perhaps partner with Philosophy, Pure Grace as an example)
Just received my Jasmine-Ginger Duo and they're already on their way back. I did love the 13.5 oz. Vanilla Apricot I got last Fall and it kept my skin from getting too dry all winter, so I had high hopes for these. The only down side of the previous jar was the gigantic air bubble that I discovered after one or two uses, leaving the jar about 2/3 full. This time I opened the jars and tapped on the side (without touching any of the product) to see if the contents would collapse, and they both did. If other brands, from Lancome to Olay, can fill a jar with face or body cream, why can't Josie Maran? The clincher was that I disliked both fragrances. I'm hoping that this bubble problem will be resolved because I really like the product when it smells good. As it is, it's just way too much money for what you're getting.
LOVE THE SOFTNESS BUT NOT THE SMELL
I really like the way Josie Maran's body butters soften my not-so-young skin. I have used the citrus and vanilla scents in the past and liked how they moisturized my skin, but I wasn't crazy about the smell. I decided to give this duo a chance since I like the scent of jasmine and ginger. Unfortunately, these have more of an earthy or ashy smell to me. I may try the Summer scent or the unscented one. I'm undecided whether I will continue to buy this product because of the cost, smell and hole in the middle of the jar. Please work on this Josie. I really want to like this product.
Soft buttery Skin
I ordered this in the Jasmine/Ginger wanted to try a different scent, I'm not crazy about the scents but this body butter if great for your skin! So i will keep but next time I will order the vanilla/cirtus!
